Top 5 Horror Movie Gems Of 2014



Well here we are. Another year is coming to an end, and holy shit.. What a year it was for the horror genre! Some time ago, usually when a horror movie goes to DVD and or Netflix, it’s pretty safe to say that it’s going to be a load of assfucks. While there were a few solid films given the theatrical treatment; I have to say VOD and Netflix absolutely trumped any horror theatrical release this year. In my opinion as to why: Most theatrical releases have a formula to them. To guarantee some sort of profit for the distributor. Many of these movies, just seem like the same plot over and over. At the risk of sounding like a Horror Snob, I just feel like the true fans of the genre, deserve a little better. And we found it available right at our own comforts at home. We had so many hidden gems available to us that were quite the breath of fresh air. For me anyway. So here is my list of the top five best horror movies of 2014 in no particular order.



1. The Babadook



The babadook is proof you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. Mr. Babadook, a top-hatted, claw-footed, black-cloaked ghoul who is the star of a disturbingly child-inappropriate tale that turns up one night on the bookshelf of a little boy. The visuals are stunning as it comes across to me just as much as an art film as a horror movie. Echoing the book’s palette of grays and blacks and then adding the touch of blood blue and red. Quite magnificent. Superbly cast and sleekly crafted, The Babadook is vastly superior to many of the vaunted recent fright flicks, including Annabelle and Ouija. It blew me out of the water. And one of the first movies in a long time that actually made me scream. Ummm yea I didn’t want to go to bed that night. I highly recommend if you haven’t seen it. Babadook give me that desired amount of scare many horror fans reach for.

2. Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones



I already know I may get a lot of shit for this one. But let me start off by saying, I’m not a huge PA fan. Frankly I thought the first was decent and the rest were garbage. Using the same predictable plot over and over. I went into The Marked Ones not expecting much but I was actually surprised when the movie ended. It was actually really good?! Previous PA entries tended to focus on the relationship between family members and or couples along with the annoying ass camera shot thats conveniently placed in every room . The Marked Ones takes a unique approach as it places the family aspects in the background and places the bond between friends at the forefront.  The change creates a substantial shift in tone for the film that adds a bit of freshness to it. It definitely has one of the best climactic builds and awesome ending of all the previous movies. Yes.. I know that this series can be extremely diverse in the horror community.  If you’ve hated all of the previous PA films, then there’s nothing I can say that would convince you to want to see this one.  However, if you’ve been a fan of the series since the beginning then I have no problem saying that this is the best entry in the sequels.

Tusk is Kevin Smith’s 11th film. And in my opinion his most deep as it this film takes you from some hysterical jokes to some downright horror as we get deeper into the movie. Now, this movie tanked at the box office. It received many mixed reviews from viewers and critics alike. I really felt as if Tusk was a real breath of fresh air as a horror fan. It’s brilliant, edgy, and NEW. Kevin Smith plumbs into the depths of human misery. It is a bit unnerving to watch at times. But overall I really enjoyed it. Tusk is about a psychotic recluse who turns a guy into a walrus. You see that man-made walrus in all of its what-the-fuck glory, and it doesn’t disappoint.

V/H/S Viral



Back for its third installment, VHS Viral offers up visually stunning scenes and keeps its viewer guessing to what is next. I’m a huge fan of the first two, so i went into the third expecting the same treatment of suspense and gore. Having seen all three, VHS 2 is still my favorite in the series, but i can attest, Viral offers up the goods to the horror fans. The basis is the same with three short stories with a bit of a twist. Viral tries to connect and explain the reasoning behind all the tapes and why they cause horrible things to happen. With an eclectic group of filmmakers back once again for three short stories, including cult favorite Nacho Vigalondo, they all merge together well enough to create a final product worth recommending.

The Taking Of Deborah Logan



I can honestly tell you I knew NOTHING about this movie going into it. Ok, old lady with Alzheimers. Sad. Oh she’s levitating now. Ummm. Ok, now thats a possession movie. Bore. I almost lost interest when it started to take a few twists and turns into a not so typical horror possession movie. Parts of “The Taking of Deborah Logan” are vaguely reminiscent of “The Ring” and “Paranormal Activity,” but this is so much better in terms of the writing, acting and unique storyline. Like any good thriller, little hints start dropping to indicate things may not be what they seem. And they deliver fantastically on that aspect. It was the big surprise for me in 2014 and I highly recommend tuning into Netflix for this one or better yet, getting your own copy for the DVD shelves in your home.

There you have it. Grant it, I haven’t seen EVERY horror movie released this year, but these are my top five based on what I had seen. You can agree or disagree. We all have diverse opinions so lets hear yours! What are some of your favorites?

Watch Deleted Predator Tree Chase Scene From ‘Prey’



To celebrate the 4K UHD, Blu-ray™ and DVD release of last year’s movie Prey, 20th Century Studios has made available a deleted animated storyboard scene. In this clip, we see our heroine Naru in a foot chase with the Predator through the tree tops of the forest canopy.

The movie is already loaded with beautiful chase scenes and suspenseful set-ups but it is a shame we never got to see this one incorporated into the movie.

Prey came out on Hulu in 2022. It was a critical hit and fans seemed to love the unique stand-alone storyline. People did fall in love with Naru’s canine companion Sarii, whose real name is Coco. She had no previous film experience and was trained specifically for the movie.

The first video is the scene without commentary. The second one includes commentary from director Dan Trachtenberg.

‘Courtney Gets Possessed’ Looks Like The Satanic BFF Comedy of 2023



So your ex is the Devil himself and you’ve moved on to someone new. In fact, you are about to marry that person. But Satan is the jealous type and isn’t giving his blessing to this new arrangement. What to do? That is the premise of the new horror comedy Courtney Gets Possessed.

Just by watching the trailer, we get a sense this is a comedy about girl power and we love that. Last year My Best Friend’s Exorcism focused on one friend trying to eject a demon from her girlfriend’s soul, but in this movie, it looks like a whole wedding party gets involved.

I do!

The Plot:

With her nuptials on the line and the Prince of Darkness lurking close by, Courtney does her best to protect her childhood home on the eve of the wedding. But when her ne’er-do-well sister accidentally invites Satan inside (known more casually as Dave), he possesses Courtney – throwing a demonic wrench into her happily-ever-after plans. Courtney’s ragtag team of reluctant heroes including her sister, perfectionist best friend, and skeptical future sister-in-law must find a way to exorcise Dave, reclaim Courtney’s soul, and get her down the aisle with as little bloodshed as possible. 

“In Sickness and in Hell” takes on a whole new meaning in this diabolically fun and thrilling romp. Audiences will be left pondering the line between love and possession and what it means to give ourselves to others. Will Courtney’s wedding bells ring or will they be drowned out by the screams of the damned? 

Courtney Gets Possessed is written and directed by Jono Mitchell and Madison Hatfield. Produced by Hatfield and Jordan Blair Brown. Executive Produced by Stephen Beehler, Jegor Jersov, and Jono Mitchell. Cinematography by Brett A. Frager. Composed by Jordan Bennett. A Peach Jam Pictures production.

Courtney Gets Possessed will be available on digital and on Demand, Friday, November 3.

Vomit Bags Handed Out in Theaters as ‘Saw X’ is Called Worse Than ‘Terrifier 2’




Remember all the puking folks were doing when Terrifier 2 was released in theaters? It was an incredible amount of social media showing folks tossing their cookies in theaters at the time. For good reason too. If you have seen the film and know what Art the Clown does to a girl in a yellow room, you know that Terrifier 2 wasn’t messing around. But it appears that Saw X is being seen a challenger.

One of the scenes that is apparently bothering folks this time is the one in which a guy has to perform brain surgery on himself in order to hack out a chunk of grey matter that weighs enough for the challenge. The scene is pretty brutal.

The synopsis for Saw X goes like this:

Hoping for a miraculous cure, John Kramer travels to Mexico for a risky and experimental medical procedure, only to discover the entire operation is a scam to defraud the most vulnerable. Armed with a newfound purpose, the infamous serial killer uses deranged and ingenious traps to turn the tables on the con artists.

For me personally, I still think that Terrifier 2 owns this crown though. It is gnarly throughout and Art is brutal and doesn’t have a code or anything. He just loves killin’. While Jigsaw deals in revenge or in ethics. Also, we see the vomit bags, but I haven’t seen anyone using em just yet. So, I’ll remain skeptical.

All in all, I gotta say I like both films since both are sticking with practical effects instead of going the cheapy computer graphics way.

Have you seen Saw X yet? Do you think that it rivals Terrifier 2? Let us know in the comments section.
