July 7th

A Ghost Story

1july ghost story

A man dies and returns as a ghost to watch over his beloved wife. It’s not strictly a horror movie, but come on, a ghost! It has some deep things to say about leaving our mark upon the world and attachment to what we leave behind.

Director: David Lowery

Cast: Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, Kenneisha Thompson

July 14th

Belief: The Possession of Janet Moses

1july janet moses

A movie from New Zealand, it’s based on the true story of an exorcism gone wrong. It’s shot like a documentary, intercut with interviews and dramatic reenactions of the exorcism. (So think The Fourth Kind without the delusion that the footage is real or the annoying split-screen, mixed with The Exorcism of Emily Rose.)

Director: David Stubbs

Cast: Kura Forrester

Granny of the Dead

1july granny

A UK movie about an average guy who must rise to the occasion when his grandmother becomes a zombie. Think Shaun of the Dead with a little bit of Dead Alive. As can be ascertained from the title, it’s a goofy horror comedy.

Director: Tudley James

Cast: Marcus Carroll, Abigail Hamilton, Tudley James

Wish Upon

1july wish upon

A teen comes into the possession of a magic box that grants wishes–with sinister side effects, of course.

Director: John R. Leonetti

Cast: Joey King, Sherilynn Fenn, Ryan Phillippe, Ki Hong Lee

July 21st

Awaken the Shadowman

1july shadowman

Supposedly “Based on actual phenomena,” the movie is about a couple, the husband of which is reconciling with his brother after their mother disappears. Alas, a cult sets their sights on the couple–and their new baby.

The Gracefield Incident

1july gracefield

A group of friends camping in the woods (one of whom has a camera installed behind his artificial eye) ignore the age-old advice that one should not poke a meteor and are accosted by aliens.

Director: Mathieu Ratthe

Cast: Mathieu Rathe, Victor Andres Turgeon-Trelles, Laurence Dauphinais, Juliette Gosselin

Killing Ground

1july killing

An Australian movie; it centers around folks camping who come across an abandoned tent. Then they find an abandoned baby and unfortunately for them, come to find out why the tent was abandoned.

Director: Damien Power

Cast: Harriet Dyer, Ian Meadows, Aaron Glenane, Aaron Pederson

The trailer is a bit hard to follow, but it’s something to do with crazy stuff happening after an earthquake. The movie looks astonishing in its mix of animation and live-action sequences and weird goings-on. According to IMDB, it has been hailed as “The grossest movie ever made.” Indeed, there seems to be a lot of buttholes, pus, and insects.

Director: Flying Lotus

Cast: Hannibal Buress, George Clinton (yes, THE George Clinton), Tim Heidecker

I wuvs the horror movies and like to write snarky reviews about them. I also included some pretentious as hell microfiction (don't worry, it's at the bottom).
