The Best Horror Movies of 2011 [The Top 10 Released and Top 5 Unreleased]

2011 was a really shitty year for horror. There’s no reason to dance around it; it just sucked. Sure, some good movies managed to find release, but not nearly enough. You know it’s been a bad 12 months of genre when it’s a struggle to assemble a Top 10 filled with films that leave any […]

THE THING 2011 Review [Includes spoilers, but since you’ve seen Carpenter’s film already…]

Directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr., 2011 Written by Eric Heisserer No one involved with THE THING 2011 understands what the words imitate or replicate mean. There’s a moment where Mary Elizabeth Winstead, supposedly a pre-eminent paleontologist/grad student, and Eric Christian Olsen are staring down a microscope at a part-human, part-alien blood sample. In it they see […]

Written and directed by Tom Six, 2011 When watching David Fincher’s SEVEN for the first time, did you see the fat man lying dead in a bowl of soup and think to yourself, “Screw the guy with the interesting motive that killed him, I want to see a movie about that worthless, walking tub of […]

SHARK NIGHT 3D Review – You Are Not Prepared.

Directed by David R. Ellis, 2011 Written by Will Hayes, Jesse Studenberg SHARK NIGHT 3D is a brilliant movie.  I’m not being ironic and I’m not trolling you when I say that.  SHARK NIGHT 3D is next level stuff; the most sentient horror movie since SCREAM.  This is the STARSHIP TROOPERS of killer shark movies– and […]

FINAL DESTINATION 5 Review: Let’s Get This Over With

Directed by Steven Quale, 2011 Written by Eric Heisserer FINAL DESTINATION 5 is the best film in the franchise since FINAL DESTINATION 2.  This is not a compliment, it is a statistic.  Yes, Steven Quale’s film is better than the nigh unwatchable fourth entry and the barely competent third film, but improvement is not the same […]
