Rating: PG-13 Stars: Annalise Basso, Elizabeth Reaser, Lulu Wilson, Henry Thomas, Doug Jones Writers: Mike Flanagan & Jeff Howard, based on characters created by Juliet Snowden & Stiles White Director: Mike Flanagan Distributor: Universal Release Date: October 20, 2016 OUIJA: THE ORIGIN OF EVIL is a sequel, or rather a prequel, far superior to its 2014 predecessor. For starters, it makes much more sense and has many more organic scares. Those who pay attention to character names will realize what story we’re watching. Otherwise, apart from the Ouija board of the title, we have to wait for a brief post-credits […]Read On »

CD Review: OUIJA and JESSABELLE soundtracks

Anton Sanko has certainly come a long way in scoring horror films since the days of “Strangeland,” employing the off-kilter vibe of such dramatic indie scores as SCOTLAND, PA., LIFE IN FLIGHT and RABBIT HOLE to the far weirder likes of LAST WINTER and an episode a piece for FEAR ITSELF and MASTERS OF HORROR. In the process, Sanko has impressed by evolving from cool, sampled quirk to fully commanding darkly emotional orchestral forces for THE POSSESSION and THE DEVIL’S HAND, a talent that only becomes more uncannily formidable with the ghostly assaults of OUIJA and JESSABELLE. While the first […]Read On »

Movie Review: OUIJA

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Olivia Cooke, Ana Coto, Daren Kagasoff, Bianca Santos, Douglas Smith, Shelley Hennig, Lin Shaye Writers: Juliet Snowden & Stiles White Director: Stiles White Distributor: Universal Release Date: October 24, 2014 Maybe this isn’t what happened at all.

Upon realizing/recalling that a lot of genre fans eye PG-13 horror warily – afraid that such films will have the flaws that afflict OUIJA – the production team opted to bypass the adult and even […]Read On »

ABC’s new series ONCE UPON A TIME, airing Sundays at 8 PM, is definitely a fantasy, but beyond that, it’s hard to compare to anything on the air, now or in the past. The short version of the premise is that the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) exiles many characters from Fairytale Land, including Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle), to the picturesque small town of Storybrooke, Maine. The erstwhile fairytale folk have no notion of their true identities but young Henry (Jared Gilmore), the adopted son of the mayor, has a glimmer of what […]Read On »
