Film Review: ‘The Conjuring’

We were trying to keep our expectations mediocre on this one (notice the word “trying” as opposed to “achieving”) but oh MAN, it’s gonna be hard after reading this review! Plus, the last ghost film we saw rated “R” not so much due to gore but scariness significantly impacted our ability to sleep. Cannot wait! The Conjuring opens in theaters July 19 (and Horror Boom has the countdown widget for all of us to check compulsively).

Maniac (2012) Review

Guess what’s now available on VOD?  Ha-hah!  The Maniac remake is! Watched it starting at 12:01 AM Friday morning, and if you saw the original on VHS like I did, you’ll be pleasantly (if that’s the word) surprised. I kept hoping they wouldn’t fuck the final scene (the one from the original Maniac pictured above in the ‘feature image’) up. Nope! They did not! Nicotero-Berger took over from Tom Savini on the PRACTICAL EFX and paid full tribute. Our review to follow- here’s Rob Nelson’s on Variety.com.
