“Independence Day: Resurgence” hopes to capture nostalgia 20 years later

You could generously call the decision to hide Independence Day: Resurgence from critics an “unconventional” choice. 20th Century Fox initially wasn’t screening the movie at all before it opened, then opted to only show it earlier today at a press screening hours after it hit screens, that’s not much of[...]

The scariest movies ever nominated for Academy Awards

With Halloween being this coming weekend, I wanted to have a little fun here and talk about scary movies and Oscar. As a general rule, the Academy doesn’t go for horror, but they have occasionally slipped on in here and there. This year, there’s a fringe contender in It Follows[...]

HOLLYWOOD CONTENDERS: Ladies and gentlemen, as you all know from the last year or so as well as my handful of articles again during this year, it’s one thing to read early Academy Award predictions at this point in the year in order to see what folks like myself think[...]

Ahoy! With it now being May, we’ve officially finished up with the first third of the year. As such, I wanted to highlight the best of the year so far, consisting of my top ten and various awards for 2015 to date. Much like last time, when I did the[...]

“The Ladies of the House” and “It Follows” have indie horror in a great place in 2015

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of It Follows, the independent horror success story from earlier on in the year. At the same time though, I’m always on the lookout for other small films of that nature that I can champion, much like many others in the industry.[...]

“5 to 7” and “It Follows”: The Best of the First Quarter of 2015

Time flies. Believe it or not, we’re now three full months into the 2015 movie calendar, which means we’re literally a quarter of the way through the film slate. That got me thinking about what the best of the bunch so far this year has been. Since now is the[...]

“It Follows” is the best horror film in years and the rare one worthy of awards

When it comes to the Academy, the genre the least seem to embrace (give or take animation, though that at least has its own category) is horror. With the exception of The Silence of the Lambs, no fright flick has been nominated for Best Picture, and while that’s not going[...]
