The 12 Best January Horror Releases Of All Time, Ranked

January horror releases have a bad rap. The reputation is undeserved, though not entirely unfounded. According to Business Insider, there's a host of factors that have resulted in January being the colloquial "dumping month" for studio releases. Fear of competing with awards contenders, holiday fatigue, and even inclement winter weather are several reasons that studios opt to "dump" less-than-stellar releases in January, hoping to recoup something in a month with little to offer.Yet, the trend i...

Chris Evangelista's Top 10 Movies Of 2021

2021 already feels like a broken promise. After the nightmare that was 2020, we could be forgiven for hoping something better was on the horizon. But 2021 was a dumpster fire right out of the gate, kicking off immediately with a violent insurrection that threatened to toss the few remaining tattered shreds of American democracy to the wolves. Vaccines offered a glimmer of promise against a deadly pandemic, but variants emerged, while grifters and selfish ghouls who fancy themselves heroes contin...

The Viridiana Controversy Explained

Luis Buñuel sought to provoke.

The famous story goes that Buñuel, along with co-director Salvador Dalí, filled his pockets with rocks in the likely chance that audiences would riot at the premiere of their 1929 film "Un Chien Andalou."

Questionable movie night programming and general strangeness aside, the ad is almost uncomfortably sincere. It suggests, at its best, that the ac...
