Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Alien Xmas (2020) Alien Xmas' message about consumerism may be simple, but that doesn't make it any less valuable.‐ io9.com

100% Big Fur (2019) What filmmaker Wayne has captured, though, might be something just as rare: a glimpse into a world that's as unusual as it is specific with the help of a guy who's made that weird world his home.‐ io9.com

100% His House (2020) While "humans are the real monsters" is, again, a very common refrain in horror, it's deployed with unusual heft in service of this specific, precisely realized story.‐ io9.com

47% The Craft: Legacy (2020) Its use here as what amounts to a plot device is not particularly interesting, nor is it all that memorable-kind of like The Craft: Legacy itself, unfortunately.‐ io9.com

89% Leap of Faith (2019) Leap of Faith is a memoir, film history lesson, and deep dive into the creative process all rolled into one-with a focus on the blend of precise artisanship and twists of fate that went into making The Exorcist.‐ io9.com

100% J.R. 'Bob' Dobbs & The Church of the SubGenius (2020) J.R. "Bob" Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius captures a period in history when rebelling against the boundaries of reality could still be a positively charged, life-altering experience.‐ io9.com

74% Black Box (2020) While the twist is a pretty obvious one, the uncomfortable truths it dislodges are surprisingly effective, and Black Box manages to stay pretty grounded.‐ io9.com

60% Nocturne (2020) Quirke is clearly a talent to watch, as are Nocturne's young stars.‐ io9.com

53% Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula (2020) If Peninsula lacks the exciting discovery element of Train to Busan, it makes up for it with its imaginative continuation of that film's story, building out its ravaged world while upping the horror exponentially. ‐ io9.com

10% The Swarm (1978) The Swarm does impart a couple of lasting lessons. Putting your trust in science is a big one, but so is the nagging idea that -as stupidly entertaining as The Swarm can be-maybe every disaster doesn't need its own disaster movie.‐ io9.com

90% Blood Quantum (2020) Horror's long history of social commentary has seldom been so pointedly applied.‐ io9.com

78% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) If you don't spend too much time dwelling on the patchwork feel of the script, there is much to enjoy elsewhere, especially when it comes to the creature design. ‐ io9.com

83% Midsommar (2019) Midsommar is very much its own beast, a folk-horror film in the tradition of The Wicker Man that also mines existential dread from the raw anguish felt by its main character.‐ io9.com

58% Prince of Darkness (1987) It may not be a perfect film, and that cliffhanger ending is an obvious tease. But it's highly effective nightmare fodder, with a bonus side of skin-crawling repulsion.‐ io9.com

25% The Nun (2018) A few pee-your-pants moments might even help wave away the sinking feeling that maybe this character didn't really need her own spin-off flick. ‐ io9.com

63% Dead Night (2018) It's crammed with interesting ideas, but not everything works. The movie's biggest triumph, though, is one very enthusiastic performance-and it's enough to recommend it to scary-movie fans.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Aug 14, 2018
67% Bloodsucking Bastards (2015) The movie is full of rapid-fire jokes and asides, delivered with complete nonchalance, and the humor is wonderfully on-target and unforced.‐ io9.com

68% mother! (2017) It's horrifying on many levels-and yet there's something deeply admirable about it.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
71% Annabelle: Creation (2017) It's like Annie, except R-rated and with screams of terror instead of singing.‐ io9.com
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
16% The Mummy (2017) It contains zero scares and is devoid of any sense of fun. What it does have is whole lot of Tom Cruise, and a Mummy whose motivation feels very, very problematic.‐ io9.com

88% Mr. Holmes (2015) At its heart, Mr. Holmes could be about anyone feeling the sting of unfinished business as old age settles in; it presents a powerful message about admitting one's mistakes, and finding ways to seek closure that'll bring personal peace of mind.‐ io9.com

70% XX (2017) Absolutely anyone who prefers the unsettling creep of dread to predictable jump scares will enjoy this one.‐ io9.com

38% Morgan (2016) Morgan is not as boundary-pushing as it could have been -- it's nowhere near as original as last year's Ex Machina, which explored similar themes but felt completely fresh in a way that Morgan doesn't.‐ io9.com

10% The Forest (2016) The Forest [is] a decent horror movie that offers plenty of shriek-worthy moments. But its more interesting aspects are the repressed guilt and sorrow at its core.‐ io9.com

60% Maggie (2015) It's an interesting, admirable effort that just doesn't quite hold together at the end.‐ io9.com

46% The Abandoned (2016) The most annoying thing in horror has got to be when the protagonist is so utterly dumb that he or she makes decisions that everyone in the audience knows are a bad idea. Case in point: The Abandoned.‐ io9.com
