What is it about towering apartment buildings that fascinates filmmakers, especially those working in horror, sci-fi, and fantasy? It’s easy to imagine these eyesores of urban development — especially those with secured entrances and exclusive tenants — harboring sinister secrets inside their walls.
High-Rise, director Ben Wheatley adaptation’s of J.G. Ballard‘s eponymous sci-fi novel, more than fits into this strange subset of films, as it focuses on dystopian class warfare inside a monolithic beast of Brualist architecture. With the film now in theaters (and on VOD), we look at other other films that imagine the incredible, horrifying, or supernatural happenings in and around these deceptively unassuming structures.
Apartment Trilogy (Roman Polanski)
Has any set of films turned the usual drudgeries of apartment living — climbing up your stairs for the umpteenth time, dealing with troubled amenities, and trying your best to acknowledge neighbors’ existence without getting the least bit involved »

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment is getting the new year started in the right way for horror fans, with The Visit and The Green Inferno arriving on Blu-ray and DVD this week, and Sinister 2 arriving on January 12. To celebrate these new releases, we have a giveaway where you can win all three of these beloved thrillers on Blu-ray in a new horror prize pack. You don't want to miss your chance to take home the latest horror hits from three talented filmmakers, M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense), Eli Roth (Cabin Fever) and Ciaran Foy (Citadel).

Scott Derrickson’s Sinister was a hit with horror fans, so when it came time to tackle a sequel to the 2012 shocker, it seemed like a followup would be a surefire success. Unfortunately, a lot of genre lovers didn’t show up to see the Derrickson/C. Robert Cargill-written Sinister 2 (on Blu-ray & DVD January 12th), and it’s a shame, as it was quite easily one of my favorite films of 2015. Stepping in to direct the sequel was Citadel‘s Ciaran Foy, who not only gave the genre a solid followup, but one that was also better than the 2012 original. Like our previous two giveaways, we’ve partnered up with Universal to give one lucky reader a Bluray copy of Sinister 2, so by all means, enter!
In the aftermath of the shocking events of Sinister, a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon of Wayward Pines) and her nine-year-old twin »
