Welcome to HorrorNews.net’s exclusive archive of film reviews. This section is comprised of all our collective movie reviews. While our branding is horror-focused, we believe in also covering a wide range of genre-related features.

HorrorNews.net reviews films that range from horror, science fiction, cult, action, fantasy, Asian, super hero, to animation. Because we are die hard fans ourselves, we also tend to know what genres like-minded folks will find interesting. All our reviews are sent out, reviewed by real reviewers (most of which work within different facets of the industry) and collected here to give our unbias opinion on them. Simply enough, if the film is crap we’ll call it out…if it’s brilliant, we’ll give credit where credit is due. Come to this section for all our latest film and movie reviews. If you prefer a more isolated category, we also have section exclusive to those.

sinister

SYNOPSIS: Found footage helps a true-crime novelist realize how and why a family was murdered in his new home, though his discoveries put his entire family in the path of a supernatural entity REVIEW: Halloween season always seems to bring out the most frightening of films. 2012 has been rather abundant in horror films, though you can’t say that the …

Film Review: The Fly (1986)

The-Fly-1986-movie-poster

SYNOPSIS: A brilliant but eccentric scientist begins to transform into a giant man/fly hybrid after one of his experiments goes horribly wrong. REVIEW: “Be Afraid. Be very afraid” So went the tagline to director David Cronenberg’s “The Fly”, more a re-imagining than a remake of the original 1958 shocker. I remember seeing the posters for this film all over back …

Film Review: Kiss the Abyss (2010)

Kiss-the-Abyss-2010-movie-5

SYNOPSIS: When his wife is accidentally killed a grief-stricken young man resorts to unnatural science to resurrect her, with horrific consequences. REVIEW: Or, to put it another way, “Wife Sematary”. Actually I’m being rather flippant there because Ken Winkler’s KISS THE ABYSS – while lacking originality – is a well-made, intelligent and decently-acted low budget horror flick. It’s from that …

Film Review: Porkchop II: Rise of the Rind (2011)

Porkchop-II-Rise-of-the-Rind-2011-movie-6

SYNOPSIS: Teens are slaughtered by a deranged killer in a pig mask. REVIEW: This sequel to 2010’s splatterfest “Porkchop” was released overseas under the much more lyrical title of “Porkchop II: Rise of the Rind“, I suspect to avoid confusing the more discerning slasher fanatic. No moniker applied, no matter how alliterative, however, can change this one simple and irrefutable …

Film Review: Prometheus Trap (2012)

PrometheusTrap-1

SYNOPSIS: In the future, man’s quest for answers will take him to the edge of the universe. But the knowledge they seek, should never be known. REVIEW: Venturing into “Prometheus Trap” completely blind and with zero point of reference, I found myself a little more at ease than if I’d had the opportunity this past summer to experience Ridley Scott’s latest attempt at …

Film Review: Taxidermia (2006)

Taxidermia_film_9

SYNOPSIS: A journey through three generations of men in a very twisted family. Did I mention that one of the members of the family is a taxidermist, or how about the one who is a champion eater. What about the grandfather who has the uncanny ability to shoot fire out of his penis? This is a very strange journey indeed. REVIEW: Directed by: Gyorgy …
