Addicted to Horror Movies is still in a state of infancy. We’re looking to grow as quickly as possible, but it’s tough when there are only a small handful of writers contributing to the site. The simple fact is, when it comes to horror cinema, there are so many new movies, television shows, news breaks and trailers to be covered that it becomes a major task to take on. But we want to tackle the mountain. We want to reach the summit and that’s going to take a lot of work. So, this is a call to arms: We want you to join our army and help us provide genre fans with excellent coverage of all things macabre. Continue reading

‘The Haunting of Helena’ Fails on Most Levels (Review)

1370372269HauntingofHelena007

Written by: Matt Molgaard

Directed by: Christian Bisceglia, Ascanio Malgarini

Cast: Harriet MacMasters-Green, Sabrina Jolie Perez, Jarreth J. Merz

Is The Haunting of Helena a Tooth Fairy flick, haunting flick, or possession flick? That is the question. Really… Just what the hell is this movie, other than an example of a film apparently battling a split personality disorder? Directors Christian Bisceglia (who also pens the script) and Ascanio Malgarini can’t seem to decide precisely what kind of movie they’d like to make, and it bogs the production down terribly. As soon as we’re getting comfortable with the idea of a Tooth Fairy flick Bisceglia and Malgarini decide to lean in the direction of an outright haunting piece… before they venture down the path of possession, where they ultimately bury their own production.

‘The Bunnyman Massacre’, an Underdeveloped Slasher (Review)

bunnyman-massacre-03-bunnyman-massacre-stills-and-a-release-date

Written by: Matt Molgaard

Directed by: Carl Lindbergh

Cast: David Scott, Julianne Dowler, Jennifer June Ross

I can’t justify investing a lot of time on this review, which means I’ll probably end up doing just that. That obviously tells you something about the film, which presents us with a series of scenes designed to shock. There’s no problem in presenting a number of shots meant to blow our minds. But those shots need to be sewn together with plot points of substance. A great movie provides us with a rich, rewarding story. A flick like The Bunnyman Massacre tells no story, it does nothing but exist to unsettle. And the truth is, there isn’t anything new, or revolting enough to leave viewers unsettled. That leaves us with a flick that accomplishes nothing other than repeating what’s been done previously, in what feels like outright lazy fashion. Continue reading

‘Mirrors’ is Alexandre Aja’s Weakest Flick… And it’s Still Pretty Good! (Review)

mirrors-featured

Written by: Matt Molgaard

Directed by: Alexandre Aja

Cast: Kiefer Sutherland, Paula Patton, Amy Smart

If you’re going to look at the résumé of Alexandre Aja and attempt to cite one “bad” flick, or even the weakest of the commercial lot, you’re probably going to find yourself returning to that title, Mirrors. Mirrors lacks the charm of Piranha, the grit of The Hills Have Eyes and the sheer terrifying nature of Haute Tension. It’s also got a few very rocky transitions which feel completely out of character for Aja, who is typically quite refined on the technical end of the spectrum. But here’s the thing, while Mirrors may be Aja’s least impressive major release to date, it’s still a pretty damn good flick. Continue reading

‘She-Wolf of London’ is Charming Even if Inferior to Universal’s True Classics (Review)

Written by: Matt Molgaard

Directed by: Jean Yarbrough

Cast: June Lockhart, Don Porter, Sara Haden

She-Wolf of London isn’t what I’d label a genuinely classic homerun of a film. That said, it’s another entertaining vintage piece from monster mastermind studio, Universal Pictures. There are a few key elements missing from the production, but even despite its perceived deficiencies, the feature still manages to entertain, proving an eerie flick in the latter portions of the pic.

We’re all for a quality psychological piece, and Leigh Janiak’s latest, Honeymoon squeezes perfectly into the realm of mentally disturbing cinema. Creepy, chilling atmosphere, a quality story and what look to be shining performances are likely to push Honeymoon into the monarchy of awesomeness. If you’ve got doubts, check out the official trailer as well as a new clip from the film after the jump. Continue reading

Written by: Tracy Crockett

Directed by: Sheldon Wilson

Cast: David Cubitt, Laura Harris, Dylan Matzke, Magda Apanowicz, Jeffrey Ballard

The small Alaskan town of Normal, Alaska is in danger of destruction by a mystical snow globe when the Miller family receives it on their doorstep, wrapped like a Christmas gift. The globe is an exact replica of their town and evidently it comes with an evil curse that causes deadly “natural” disasters in the real world, while simultaneously occurring in the globe.

We Eat Brains: The Top 10 Zombie Movies

Written by: Greg McCabe

When it comes to apocalyptic scenarios, I personally don’t think it gets much scarier than zombies. Is there anything more terrifying than the idea of the world’s demise coming from of a plague that turns everyone into mindless, cannibalistic killers? Continue reading
