Ten of the Most Unconventional Horror Movie Monsters

7 November 2013 3:00 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

One of the key components to a successful horror film is a memorable adversary for the protagonists. Usually the villain is human, or once was. Sometimes the primary opponent is a possessed home, or a revenant that just won’t die. In rare cases, the monster is something a little more… unusual. As evidenced in the list below, we sometimes discover the enemy is more bizarre than we could ever dream: evil objects, demonic playthings, even malevolent pastries... monsters come in many forms.   With that said, it’s time to take a walk down memory lane and recall some of the most unconventional monsters in horror cinema history. Here are ten of our favorites:     The Vines in The Ruins   The Ruins has some genuinely creepy moments, and features a respectable cast and mostly bearable performances. But I could never fully get on board with the concept that the characters are »

Review: The Frankenstein Theory

7 March 2013 2:05 PM, PST | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

When it comes to found footage films, I’ve pretty much run the course. I’ve seen all the triple-a Hollywood titles (Blair Witch, Paranormal Activity) and nearly every straight to DVD wannabe released in the last decade: Bigfoot: The Lost Cost Tapes, Area 407, Grave Encounters 1 and 2, The Amityville Haunting and a dozen more. To put things bluntly, most of them are terrible. It’s the cheapest way to make a horror movie so it makes sense that filmmakers would flock to it and the outcome is handfuls of mediocre, jump scare ridden, terribly written, poorly acted horror movies.

I am happy to say that The Frankenstein Theory does an excellent job at avoiding those downfalls. Now while many of the advertisements you see come tagged with “from the makers of The Last Exorcism,” this is a bit of a stretch. This is  Andrew Weiner’s first foray into »

Spooky Trailer For 'My Amityville Horror' Documentary

1 March 2013 2:30 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

No doubt if you're a fan of the horror genre and in particular interested in true crime history, then you've at some point been fascinated by the "true story" surrounding 'The Amityville Horror.' Hell, that's the reason Hollywood has managed to churn out up to 7 sequels in the franchise, and that doesn't even include the Platinum Dunes remake, the Asylum knock off 'The Amityville Haunting' or the several documentaries on the subject like those excellent History Channel specials. However, you haven't heard the whole story quite yet.

Below you'll find the trailer for IFC Midnight's new documentary from filmmaker Eric Walter 'My Amityville Horror.' For the first time in 35 years, Daniel Lutz recounts his version of the infamous Amityville haunting that terrified his family in 1975. George and Kathy Lutz's story went on to inspire a best-selling novel and the subsequent films have continued to fascinate audiences today. »
