‘Torn Hearts’ Review – Katey Sagal Shines in Brea Grant’s Playfully Unhinged Thriller

Bloody Disgusting’s Torn Hearts review is spoiler-free. The music genre most often explored in horror is fellow outcast rock ‘n roll or metal, but director Brea Grant makes a strong case for country music’s inclusion in the horror space. Torn Hearts combines country’s frequent themes of love and loss with horror’s twisted pursuit of fame, delivering a mean thriller […]

‘Shark Bait’ Review – Another Mediocre Shark Attack Movie That At Least Has Gory Bite

James Nunn‘s Shark Bait earns its praise only by comparison in today’s grim state of contemporary fin flicks. Anyone could record more thrilling aquatic horrors than 2021’s Great White or 2022’s The Requin with a handheld camera, a kiddie pool, and a Street Sharks puppet. Not since 2020’s Deep Blue Sea 3 has shark cinema […]

‘Firestarter’ Review – Modern Reimagining of Stephen King’s Novel Fails to Ignite

Bloody Disgusting’s Firestarter review is spoiler-free. The Stephen King renaissance continues with a modern adaptation of his 1980 novel, Firestarter. Considering the lackluster response to the 1984 adaptation, it’s likely long overdue. But the real question is whether there’s any thematic depth or storytelling to mine amidst superhero cinema’s current oversaturation and popularity. While The Vigil director Keith Thomas does […]

A24’s ‘Men’ Review – Alex Garland Unsettles With Surreal Folk Horror

Director Alex Garland established a distinct penchant for surrealistic genre fare in just two features, Ex Machina and Annihilation.

‘The Innocents’ Review – A Provocative and Disturbing Moral Fable of Superpowered Innocence

Moral development is a crucial element of childhood, and it so happens to provide fertile ground for horror. The lines between innocence and evil can blur instantly when a child navigates morality and the social norms that teach right and wrong. Sometimes those lessons are taught through violence.

‘The Twin’ Review – Maternal Nightmare Gets Too Caught Up in Its Destination

Bloody Disgusting’s The Twin review is spoiler-free. Gaslighting and paranoid isolation frequently come into play in horror movies centered around motherhood. Everything about The Twin‘s premise teases more of the same. Director and co-writer Taneli Mustonen (Lake Bodom) aims to subvert that formula by infusing it with folk horror and a few narrative sharp turns. But it’s so fixated on […]
