The 20 Best 2000s Horror Movies Ranked

After the bountiful harvest the decade before, horror films fell into somewhat of a rut in the '90s. It was an era that saw the long overdue death of a number of once-lucrative franchises like Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th, thanks to sequels with lessening box office returns. However, a resurgence began with the dawn of the new millennium. With the emergence of digital film technology and affordable computing power, films were cheaper to make, while the internet was a brand new fro...

Midnight Mass Early Buzz: Mike Flanagan Has Made Another Great Horror Series

As if excitement for Mike Flanagan's new Netflix series isn't overwhelming enough, reactions to "Midnight Mass" are taking Twitter by storm! The horror miniseries is just days away from premiering on the streamer, but it feels like the wait will last an eternity.

Mike Flanagan's Midnight Mass Already Has A Fan In Stephen King

In recent years, director Mike Flanagan has emerged as the heir apparent to Frank Darabont, just in terms of his propensity for executing solid film adaptations of Stephen King stories. Though we won't be seeing "Revival," his third planned adaptation, he's got two more under his belt already, and King is still keeping his eye on Flanagan's other projects.It's possible we'll see them team up again in the future, but in the meantime, there's "Midnight Mass," Flanagan's upcoming Netflix series, wh...

The Shawshank Redemption 4K Review: The Masterpiece Dazzles in 4K

The Shawshank Redemption remains one of the all-time great films. Everyone knows this. Really, there’s not much more that can be said about Frank Darabont’s astonishing 1994 masterpiece that hasn’t been said already. Everything about the flick, namely the thoughtful screenplay (adapted from Stephen King’s short story), wonderful performances, solid direction, and beautiful Thomas Newman score, combine to deliver a monumental cinematic achievement that has yet to reveal any signs of wear and tear...

The Shining Ending Explained: One Of The Most Famous Horror Conclusions Ever Deserves A Fresh Look

Perhaps no single film in the horror genre has been as closely analyzed, picked apart, and scrutinized as Stanley Kubrick's 1980 masterpiece "The Shining." Ostensibly an adaptation of Stephen King's 1977 potboiler of the same name, the film itself uses the same basic structure of the novel (troubled family become winter caretakers at a mountain hotel, dad goes crazy in the isolation, ghosts and alcoholism are involved) but takes some big left-field swings with the material in the third act. Ther...

Mad Max Spin-Off Furiosa Pushed Back One Year, Salem's Lot To Haunt Theaters Next September

We've got some good news and some bad news on the release date front. The good news is, "Mad Max: Furiosa," the long-awaited prequel to "Mad Max: Fury Road," has a new release date.

Here's What Happened To The Cast Of Heroes

Tim Kring intended for "Heroes" to have a shifting cast. That was a sensible impulse: The show -- which aired on NBC from 2006-2010 -- concerned ordinary people who discover they have superhuman abilities. If the series' primary thrust was proving how extraordinary an average human could be, casting a fresh batch of actors each season seems like a prudent way to drive the theme home -- and to discover new breakout stars in the process.Except it wasn't. The original cast of "Heroes" proved so pop...

Malignant Trailer: James Wan Is Back To Scare The Crap Out Of You

Nothing good can ever come from an imaginary friend in a horror movie. In "Malignant," Annabelle Wallis is a woman who invented an imaginary friend in her youth. Now, it sure looks like that imaginary friend is back -- and killing people. At least that's what this new trailer is hinting at -- it's all a bit vague. But if the "killer imaginary friend" idea is accurate, that kind of makes this like a horror movie version of "Drop Dead Fred." Spooky!  Malignant Trailer This is officially labeled ...

The story focuses on a writer returning to his quaint little Maine hometown just as vampires move in and st...

20 Movies About Aliens That You Definitely Need To Watch

Films with aliens are rarely about the aliens themselves. These interstellar visitors usually serve as metaphors for human nature, a reflection of our politics, or a means to discuss strange natural phenomena. As Stephen King explained in "Danse Macabre," his non-fiction exploration of the horror genre, the things that frighten or confuse us change shape with each generation. The aliens of the '50s and '60s were Cold War relics that played on social paranoia. The aliens of the '80s reflected con...

13 Box Office Bombs That Are Truly Worth A Watch

Good movies aren't all created equal. While some benefit from great trailers and well-crafted marketing campaigns, other films suffer from a lack of promotion. Sometimes, a good movie is released at the same time as bigger, much-awaited production that overshadows everything else in theaters; it's never a good idea to schedule a movie's opening against the latest entry in a hot franchise or the biggest stars' latest blockbusters. Whatever the reason, many truly great movies bomb at the box offic...
