  • Deliver Us From Evil – Movie Review

    Based on true events, Deliver Us from Evil is the latest horror movie from “Sinister” director Scott Derrickson. With Sinister being up there as one of my favorite horror movies ever (while also loving The Exorcism of Emily Rose), I had high hopes for Derrickson’s next horror installment. Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana- Star Trek 2009, Lone Survivor) is a family man and police sergeant in New York City assigned to the Special Operations division. Known for his “radar” sense, Sarchie [...]

  • My Top Five Horror Movies of 2014 So Far!

    For almost a decade, it’s seemed as if horror movies were only great on opposite years. 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013 were all fantastic years for genre films while the years in between them seemed to lag. And with how slow 2012 was and how great 2013 was for genre movies, I naturally expected 2014 to be a bit slow. I could not be happier that I am so wrong. Because 2014 has been great so far and there have [...]

“What happened is true” Revisiting The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

The popular Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie directed by Tobe Hooper.

In some ways, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is the first modern horror movie. In some even deeper ways, it may be possible to consider it as the first modern movie. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is the death of old Hollywood. It’s the destruction of the studio system, of the rules, and really of structure of any kind. It doesn’t look like a movie. It looks like a straightforward portrayal of madness. You look at the film and you [...]

Remake Comparison – Halloween- Carpenter Vs Zombie

Michael Myers who is the infamous character in the popular Halloween movies. The original was directed by John Carpenter and the remake Rob Zombie.

Comparing these two movies is interesting because despite telling the same basic story, they could not be more different. The two movies are made by completely different filmmakers with completely different styles. Both movies here have their fans. But when stacked up against each other, how do they fare? How does Rob Zombie’s Halloween compare to the original? Let’s take a look. JOHN CARPENTER’S HALLOWEEN Carpenter’s Halloween is a masterpiece. It’s a simple story, but it’s one of the most [...]

Remake Comparison: Fright Night 1985 Vs Fright Night 2011

The original 1985 Fright Night movie directed by Tom Holland.

These two films are interesting and relatively easy to compare because, while they follow the same plot, they are fundamentally different movies. The original Fright Night and the 2011 remake are about completely different things. Ultimately, that may end up working in their favor, allowing for a little breathing room and allowing both films to stand on their own. While the remake has a lot of great points of its own to make (and is at its best while doing [...]

Review – Bryan Bertino’s Mockingbird

Poster for Mockingbird

Mockingbird is a film that has sort of slid under the radar. We haven’t really covered it here at Wicked Horror and probably would have missed it all together if I hadn’t gotten an e-mail from a BlumHouse publicist offering a screener for review. It’s unfortunate that we haven’t given this title more play on the site because it is really quite excellent. Aside from a few shortcomings, I was very pleased with the film as a whole. The film finds four different [...]
