Just in time for Halloween, Liz sat down and chatted with film and television editor, Jeremy Cohen to talk about his most recent project Totally Killer!
Is there any creature more unlikely to be a horror threat than a sloth? Slotherhouse puts that conceit to the test, with the notoriously slow and peaceful creature cast as a vicious killer, set loose in a sorority house. Brilliant? Ridiculous? Both? The film Arrives in Theaters on August 30. See the trailer here!
Alexandra Spieth's debut horror-comedy feature Stag was the revelation of the Portland Horror Film Festival 2022. Spieth is an enthusiastic interview and a total blast to talk to. Check out our exclusive discussion with the emerging horror writer-director right here!
★★★★ out of ★★★★★ We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again — comedy is a difficult task that’s made all the more difficult when it gets mixed up with its gory cousin, HORROR. To see it done well is one of the more pleasant sights that a horror fan gets to ever see. The new film, Stag, by quadruple threat (actress, writer, director, and producer) Alexandra Spieth marries these two ugly cousins together perfectly — ironically in the context of a weekend bridal party.
★★★★ out of ★★★★★ The family that slays together...will have you laughing right until the screaming starts.

Prepare to be entertained! Onyx the Fortuitous, the fan-favorite award winner at the Portland Horror Film Festival, pulls out all the stops to catch your attention, get you laughing, and keeps piling on. It is wall-to-wall zany, filled with scene-chewing characters, fantastic puppet practical effects, an easy hook of a premise, and the frantic energy of actor/director Andrew Bowser who plays Onyx the Fortuitous, your gonzo lead character in the movie.
★★★★ out of ★★★★★ 🩸🩸🩸 This is a grisly (not grizzly... the bear is a black bear) romp through the forest, amped up with narcotics and has some wildly entertaining moments. Elizabeth Banks continues her transformation from in front of the camera star to behind the camera, and she hit the comedic and gory tone just right with Cocaine Bear.

Fear the Pythagorean Theorem! Wait... what? The latest film from trendsetting actor/directors Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson explores the fear of pattern languages. Math can be a frustratingly daunting experience at best and mind-bogglingly cryptic at the extremes. Think of it. Irrational numbers. ∞. Triskadecaphobia. π. Abstract numbers. Dividing by zero. What does it all mean? The laws and rules of mathematics that govern our lives can be twisted. Oh, the Horror!
★★★★ out of ★★★★★ A hilarious, scathing and deadly look at misogyny through the lens of office politics.
★★★★ out of ★★★★★ It’s probably not too far out on a limb to say that Dave Grohl is an American treasure, but it turns out he actually is. From his time in Scream to Nirvana and his alt-grunge outfit the Foo Fighters, the man has done it all. Vacillating between documentaries with topics as varied as the Bad Brains, Lemmy, obscure record labels, and even Devo, Dave has covered nearly every possible music genre and sub-genre. While he’s acted in a handful of fictional films, he’s never really touched on the world of horror. That is until now. Turns out he’s a pretty great actor. And, he’s also got a penchant for comedy.
★★★ out of ★★★★★ The best defense is a good offense when you're playing Bodies Bodies Bodies
★★★ out of ★★★★★ Everybody had to start somewhere. Alien ripped off The Green Slime. Child’s Play ripped off Magic. Piranha ripped off Jaws. And everyone ripped off Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It should come as no surprise that this year’s weirdo “it” film Malignant is a ripoff, but we’re here to tell you it is.
★★★★ out of ★★★★★ A struggling horror novel author catches a fortuitous break, when a dashing young vampire crashes into her life. Red Snow is a cheeky and wicked little horror-romcom with great character chemistry that doesn't always go where you would expect.
The Scariest Things sat down for a fun and lively discussion with director Ryan Barton-Grimley to break down his raucous horror-comedy Hawk and Rev: Vampire Slayers, one of our favorite movies from 2020.
Our universal fav' film from 2019 gets its official release on March 6! Prepare to laugh, cry, and get 👻 spooked.
We'll just park this little 54 second trailer right on over here in the "huh" category. The Scariest Things Podcast challenges you to find a weirder, more off-putting, and more kick-ass fun trailer. Just try it. You won't succeed. We promise you.
