‘Venom’ Invades the Box Office With $200M Worldwide Opening!

by We Love Horror
Holy. Shit. Even with all of the negative press leading into its release, Columbia Pictures’ Venom bonded with audiences to received a B+ CinemaScore. Whether critics liked it or not, the Ruben Fleischer-directed Spider-Man spinoff was a monstrous hit, pulling in not only $80M here in the States, but another $125M internationally for an estimated $205M global opening. Get this, it hasn’t even opened in China yet! For perspective, this opening will be an October record previously held by Gravity, which celebrated $55.7M. Also, even more shocking, Venom‘s opening is bigger than any of the Spider-Man movies. Ever.  For even more [...]

[Fantastic Fest Review] Netflix’s ‘Apostle’ Elevates Folk Horror with Gut-Churning Brutality

by We Love Horror
A period set horror thriller that sees a brother sent to a remote island to retrieve his sister from the clutches of a religious cult instantly brings folk horror films of the ‘60s and ‘70s to mind. Films like The Wicker Man or even The Witchfinder General. While it takes its time to unveil the mysteries within the isle of Erisden, Apostle sets itself apart from any folk horror we knew before thanks to a visceral, no holds barred third act that will leave you on edge. That’s because this was written and directed by Gareth Evans, the mind behind [...]

by We Love Horror
Netflix is delivering a big time treat this Halloween season when they open the doors to “The Haunting of Hill House” on October 12, the 10-episode series directed by Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus, Ouija: Origin of Evil, Before I Wake, Gerald’s Game).

With the ‘Killer Klowns’ Taking Over Halloween Horror Nights, the Chiodo Brothers Talk Sequel

by We Love Horror
Bloody Disgusting was on hand at the opening weekend of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando this past Friday night, and for me personally, the highlight was seeing 1988’s Killer Klowns from Outer Space represented at the event. Orlando is playing host to a Klowns-themed “scare zone” this year, which is loaded with various different Klowns as well as movie-quality props and even the Terenzi brothers’ ice cream truck. To really sell the whole deal, the film’s iconic scored is piped into the park as you walk through the maze. For a Klowns mega fan, it’s pure heaven on Earth. [...]

[Trailer] Netflix’s “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Looks Dark, Scary and Totally Awesome

by We Love Horror
A witch’s 16th birthday is very special. Not that we weren’t already, but we’re now 100% all-in on Netflix’s comic book adaptation “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,“ which debuts its first footage in a teaser today. The teaser trailer is loaded with creepy imagery, doubling down on the series’ promise to be *so much* darker than Sabrina’s first TV series. This looks like pure Halloween glory. “Chilling Adventures” is headed our way on October 26. The series is set to be an hour-long drama that will reimagine the story of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age tale that traffics in horror, [...]

[TIFF Review] ‘Halloween’ Delivers a Laurie vs Michael Showdown 40 Years in the Making

by We Love Horror
It’s been twenty years since we last saw Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) face off against Michael Myers (no, I’m not counting Resurrection). Back then she was an overprotective drunk headmistress of a prep school. In David Gordon Green’s 2018 franchise relaunch, Laurie isn’t drinking away her trauma: she’s battle prepping for it. Gone is the alcohol dependency (mostly) and her paralyzing fear of the Shape; 40 years later and Laurie Strode is a badass doomsday survivalist. The events of Halloween: H20 may have been washed away in this canon retcon, but the experience of seeing Curtis return to arguably [...]

[Butcher Block] Mario Bava’s Gory ‘A Bay of Blood’ Paved the Way for the Slasher

by We Love Horror
Butcher Block is a weekly series celebrating horror’s most extreme films and the minds behind them. Dedicated to graphic gore and splatter, each week will explore the dark, the disturbed, and the depraved in horror, and the blood and guts involved. For the films that use special effects of gore as an art form, and the fans that revel in the carnage, this series is for you. Italian director, screenwriter, special effects artist, and cinematographer Mario Bava has often been credited as birthing the giallo, which subsequently played a major influence on the rise of the American slasher. Bava’s major style departure [...]

[Review] ‘The Meg’ Is Well Aware What Kind of Movie It Is and Delivers Monster Sized Fun

by We Love Horror
Discerning genre geeks face a weird dilemma when it comes to shark movies: basically, Jaws is one of the best movies ever made (obviously) and the basic concept of “shark vs. people” is of course very appealing to those who like horror, action, or quality b-movies in general. So why are decent shark movies so damn rare? It’s not exactly brain surgery here, but despite the massive success of Jaws, there have only been a small handful of half-decent flicks on the Shark Attack shelf. You’ll find plenty of people who like Jaws 2, Deep Blue Sea, Shark Night, and [...]

Are We Crazy or Did “Castle Rock” Just Set Up a Mind Blowing Reveal?

by We Love Horror
“You have no idea what’s happening here, do you?” Proving that he can be just as creepy playing a human character as he can be playing a nightmarish dancing clown, Bill Skarsgård has been commanding the screen as a silent and unsettling character known only as “The Kid” on Hulu’s “Castle Rock,“ a young man who had been secretly kept prisoner deep beneath the bowels of Shawshank by Dale Lacy, the former warden of the prison; Lacy, who killed himself before “The Kid” was found, believed he was doing the town a service, capturing the Devil responsible for the darkness that [...]

“Castle Rock”: How the Best Stephen King Adaptation Could Be One That Isn’t Really a Stephen King Adaptation

by We Love Horror
Stephen King is a state of mind. The author has written nearly 60 novels, a half-dozen non-fiction books and hundreds of short stories. In doing so, he’s built his own multiverse, one that dates back to 1974’s Carrie all the way to this summer’s The Outsider. That’s a rich well to draw from, and Castle Rock – the new Hulu series from Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason – is wise to not limit itself to an adaptation of just one of those texts. Instead we get a show inspired by Stephen King’s entire world – and that just might make [...]
