2016’s films ranked

20 January 2017 1:20 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This ranking includes only new theatrical releases viewed for the awards year of 2016 (for eligibility for the Academy Awards and the Ofcs and Awfj awards); some films released in the UK without Us releases (and so ineligible for those awards this year) may also be included, for my own bookkeeping purposes. Links go to my review. Numbers after each entry are Date First Viewed/NYC Release Date/London Release Date; year is 2016 unless otherwise noted.

01.03.17: This ranking is not quite final; I will continue to add films and links to reviews through the awards season that ends with the Oscars ceremony on February 26th.

Q&A: ‘Adult Babies’ creator Joanne Mitchell talks all things horror

20 January 2017 3:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Adult Babies gets an exclusive reveal at Horror Channel FrightFest Glasgow 2017, in anticipation of the event, actress / producer Joanne Mitchell – star of Before Dawn and Bait; and creator of Adult Babies – answers 10 scary questions…

When did your fascination for horror films begin?

I’ve been interested in horror since being a young kid. I liked to be frightened, whether it be reading a scary book, or watching one of the Hammer House of Horrors. But it wasn’t until my 30’s that I really became fascinated with the whole genre after making ‘Before Dawn’ and watching back to back movies at FrightFest!! The fans are so loyal and open minded and really know their stuff.

What was the first horror film you saw?

I’m pretty sure it was ‘The Thing’. If I remember rightly my brother and his mates had managed to get a copy and I snuck in! »

Every Bizarre, Twisted, F*cked-Up Thing That Happens in M. Night Shyamalan's Split

19 January 2017 8:30 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

M. Night Shyamalan first gained fame with The Sixth Sense, thanks to its brilliant, original twist ending. Since then, the director has been chasing the ever-elusive high of a similarly successful and mind-blowing surprise, which he's attempted in his successive horror and sci-fi films like The Village, Signs, and Unbreakable. Although those failed to deliver the same impact, his 2015 found-footage flick The Visit seemed to herald a return to form for Shyamalan with its simple story and fantastic, shocking conclusion. With that in mind, the writer-director's latest entry into the horror genre, Split, looked like it might be a twist-filled slam dunk at the box office. Although the film suffers from a few bloated, meandering storylines and the ending will leave some rolling their eyes, there are enough creepy, terrifying moments (and incredible performances) scattered throughout Split that will no doubt make it a notable notch on Shyamalan's belt of accomplishments. »

The Horrific Ending of The Autopsy of Jane Doe Will Keep You Up at Night

18 January 2017 12:30 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Warning: spoilers below! If you've already taken our friendly advice and watched André Øvredal's The Autopsy of Jane Doe, then you know that the supernatural horror film ends on a fairly dismal note. If you haven't taken our advice and watched it, but you want to know what happens anyway, then steel your nerves and proceed with caution while we break down the ending in this simple, deceptively brilliant movie. First Thing's First: What's the Set-Up? An unidentified woman's naked, perfectly preserved corpse is found half-buried in the basement of a home where a brutal, bloody triple-murder occurred, and the body is brought in to the mortuary of father-son coroners Tommy and Austin Tilden (Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch, respectively), who run their business out of the basement of their home. Although Tommy has already wrapped up for the night, the sheriff pleads with him to perform the autopsy »

4 Big Reasons Horror Fans Absolutely Can't Skip the Autopsy of Jane Doe

17 January 2017 2:30 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Don't you hate when a movie's trailer ends up being way better than the movie itself? No genre suffers from this more than horror. When a trailer for a scary movie is stuffed with its biggest jump scares and not-so-subtle hints at a twist ending, it simultaneously entices audience members into the theater while also spoiling their eventual viewing experience. If the best parts are in the trailer, then what's the point of even watching? When the trailer for The Autopsy of Jane Doe was released in December it almost immediately went viral, and though I was interested in it straightaway, I couldn't help but wonder if it was yet another flimsy horror movie skating by on trailer-friendly scares. Fortunately it delivers, and then some. Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox star in the indie flick as father-son coroners tasked with performing an autopsy on a mysterious young woman, and the »

‘The Bye Bye Man’ Review: A Classic Boogeyman Horror That Respects Its Audience

12 January 2017 6:06 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While the idea of an entire movie about people getting killed for saying its title isn’t the easiest sell, “The Bye Bye Man” rises above those low expectations. The husband and wife team of director Stacy Title and screenwriter Jonathan Penner (“The Last Supper,” “Let The Devil Wear Black”) don’t break any rules, but they still manage to deliver an effective genre effort.

After a suburban husband goes on a rifling killing spree in the Pantone-colored past, we meet modern day Elliott (Douglas Smith) and Sasha (Cressida Bonas) as they sign a lease on a dilapidated brick dwelling big enough to contain their enormous love. It’s a fixer upper, and though they wonder why it’s so affordable, they’re too thrilled by the prospect of playing house to care. They find a stockpile of antique furniture down in the basement, and a few scary basement things happen, »

Monte’s Favorites of 2016

11 January 2017 9:58 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

To call 2016 a good year for horror would be an understatement. It was a fantastic year with a little something for every genre taste. You didn’t have to venture very far to find something that was absolutely fantastic. With great television shows like Channel Zero: Candle Cove or The Exorcist, wonderful films like The Witch and Green Room, and music from labels like Waxwork Records and Death Waltz Recording, the horror genre was finely taken care of. Here are few of the standouts for me in 2016.

Twin Peaks Vinyl Soundtrack (Death Waltz Recording / Mondo): Every single year, Death Waltz comes out with a release that makes me absolutely overjoyed. David Lynch’s films are stunning genre works. The lurid imagery, the bold characters, and the music composition within his films give Lynch’s work a unique quality. The Twin Peaks soundtrack, lovingly released by Death Waltz, comes »

Urban Myths: see the first trailer for Sky Arts' new series

11 January 2017 6:14 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jan 11, 2017

Here's your first look at Urban Myths, Sky Arts' star-studded and controversial new series...

When Sky Arts announced they were pressing ahead with Urban Myths, a new series set to explore some of the more random urban legends that have been linked to celebrities over the years, it sounded like it was going to be pretty fun, but as the casting process continued things started to get almost as weird as the stories themselves.

Eddie Marsan (The Disappearance Of Alice Creed) as Bob Dylan, Rupert Grint (Harry Potter) as 'Hitler's Friend', Brian Cox (The Autopsy Of Jane Doe) as Marlon Brando...not a casting choice went by that didn't either raise an eyebrow or get a nod. »

Patrick’s Favorites of 2016

9 January 2017 4:46 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Make no mistake about it: this was a great year for horror fans. It was so good, in fact, that making a list of “favorites” is almost impossible because there’s just too much I want to talk about. The independent horror scene continues to crank out new classics and minor gems, but even studio horror was good this year: The Conjuring 2, Don’t Breathe, Ouija: Origin of Evil, Lights Out (not my bag, but a lot of people really enjoyed it), The Boy (not a lot of people’s bag, but I really enjoyed it), The Purge: Election Year, and so on. Even better? Pretty much every one of them was successful at the box office. As more and more horror moves are released with the limited release / VOD model, it’s nice to know that good movies still play to big audiences at the multiplex.

And what about horror on TV? »

‘The Autopsy of Jane Doe’ Review: Emile Hirsch Slices Into Slow-Burn Horror

5 January 2017 12:11 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Performing an autopsy doesn’t typically spring to mind as a father-son bonding activity, and “The Autopsy of Jane Doe” won’t do much to change that. Even so, Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch make a case for keeping it in the family as morticians in André Øvredal’s (“Trollhunter”) slow-burning horror film, which suggests that the apprentice model may not be dead after all — even if its practitioners are at death’s door. With a basement workspace flanked by family photos and wood paneling, dad (Cox) quizzes junior (Hirsch) about the cause of death of a corpse burnt beyond recognition the way others. »

Hey there, everyone! I sincerely hope this finds you all well (or at least coping) and eager (or at least willing) to take on a new year. I love doing year-end lists. For me, it’s a time of reflection, as well as expansion. Since I started with Daily Dead in April of 2015, my horror-view continues to grow; I’ve been so fortunate to meet and speak with some enduring legends of the genre, not to mention strike many new friendships through social media. But what my continuing immersion in this greatest of cultures has provided above all else is an appreciation for the variety and depth horror has to offer. It really has been a great year; unfortunately, I’ve missed some goodies, but dammit, I tried. So, without anymore ado whatsoever, here are a few (okay, a lot) of my favorite things from 2016.

Heather’s Favorites of 2016

This has easily been the hardest time I’ve ever had whittling down my favorite genre offerings for the year. I was fortunate to watch so many great movies throughout the course of the last 12 months (over 150—new and old!), and considering the quality of projects from both the studio and independent sides of the business was exceedingly high, I probably could have featured 20 films on this list, and still would have at least a dozen more I could recommend to fellow fans. 2016 was definitely one of the best recent years in horror and that’s pretty rad.

Beyond the realm of movies, horror also had a strong showing on TV, as it seems almost every single network these days has something of interest if you’re looking to immerse yourself in horror on the small screen. I was also fortunate enough to attend several amazing genre events in 2016, making »
