Review: Chillerama

by Patrick Bromley
Horror anthologies can be so much fun and seem, on the surface, to be so audience-friendly that it's incredible there aren't more good ones. Think about it: there was 2007's Trick 'r Treat, which never even received a theatrical release and didn't see the light of day until it was dumped direct-to-DVD in 2009, and before that the last good horror anthology was...Creepshow? That's 25 years. Fucking criminal.

Sh!#ting on the Classics: Black Swan

I remember well the first (and only) time I saw this overwrought stinker. I was sitting in the theater with Patrick Bromley and both of our lovely wives. I hated every minute of Black Swan. The lights came up after the screening, and I turned to them with a grin. I was looking forward to trading snarky wisecracks... but THAT NEVER HAPPENED.

Horror Movies We Shouldn't Like But Do

Seeing as our original list of "Movies We Shouldn't Like But Do" was so popular, and seeing as it's still Scary Movie Month at F This Movie!, it only makes sense to do a list of horror movies we shouldn't like but do. Consider it an unnecessary sequel. Or a cheap cash in. Just like in the horror movies!

Watchin' Trailerz with Doug (October 21)

It's only Oct. 21, and we already have over 250 comments in the F This Movie! F Scary Movies! Challenge II. That's impressive! Good job, some of you! The rest of you? Step up your game! But #ScaryMovieMonth isn't over yet -- you still have over a week (and, really, the week before Halloween is where the rubber meets the road [huh?]) to submit your seven-word reviews to our website. It's the most fun you can have with your clothes on! Or off! You weirdos!

Review: The Woman

by Patrick Bromley
To see Lucky McKee's new movie, The Woman, is to be reminded of what slick, hollow trash most studio horror is these days.

Sh!#ting on the Classics: Stephen King Movies

by JB
When properly adapted, Stephen King’s books make GREAT movies, but I could not resist the temptation to shit on some of the AWFUL ones. I only hope that in doing this, I haven’t accidentally unleashed a murderous alien Poo Monster.

F This Movie! - F The Music Box Massacre! (2011)

Patrick and JB. One theater. 13 horror movies. 24 hours. It's time again for the Music Box Massacre.



Correction: We claim on the podcast that Bob Clark is not the director of Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things. He is. That makes the movie even more baffling. We're sorry.

Watchin' Trailerz with Doug (October 7)

In honour of SCARY MOVIE MONTH, I'll be featuring trailers from classic(?) horror movies* throughout October. Sorry fans of new films coming out roughly between December 2011 and March 2012! Furthermore, today is ma burfday, so consider this a GIFT (that's how birthdays work, right? The birthday boy gives strangers/movie nerds who read websites at 2 a.m. in their underwear theoretical, half-formed "gifts"?). You're welcome. Also, DOUGTOBERFEST!

*Note: because many of these trailers were uploaded years ago, the image quality is pretty poor, and the volume is all over the place. Apologies in advance!

F These Horror Comedies


The horror comedy has proven to be a difficult genre to pull off successfully, because most attempts are neither funny nor scary. They're just monster movies with bad jokes. But it's Scary Movie Month, so let's take a look!

by Patrick Bromley

by JB
I love horror movies more than any other person I know. The proof is in my basement. You might say that I love every horror film ever made. Except this one.
