THE BEST Horror

The Sacred Riana

The Sacred Riana

Twenty-five-year-old magician and illusionist Riana Graharani’s tricks probably won’t fool Penn and Teller. But she still managed to win Asia’s Got Talent 2017 by augmenting her craft with just the right amount of disturbing presentation and acting.

PHV: Look into the Darkness

PHV: Look into the Darkness

Man-eating Sushi

Man-eating Sushi

(Gore) A hilariously over-the-top festival of blood, guts, and raw seafood from the so-bad-it’s-good horror flick Deddo Sushi, about genetically-mutated sushi set loose by a disgruntled research scientist. We’ll never look at our spicy tuna maki the same way again.

Underappreciated Horror Films

Resident Evil Nemesis Pumpkin Carving

Resident Evil Nemesis Pumpkin Carving

Winston

Scorn (Gameplay)

Scorn (Gameplay)

(Gore) A first-person horror adventure featuring dark and creepy imagery that clearly draws inspiration from the work of the late, great artist H.R. Giger. Its gross organic environments and weapons are almost scarier than the enemies at this point in development.

Dunkey Reviews The Shining

Dunkey Reviews The Shining

(PG-13: Language) Videogamedunkey casts his analytical eye on his favorite horror film, The Shining. It’s a movie that needs no further introduction. But until every single human being has watched it, we think it qualifies as underappreciated.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer (Trailer)

IT (Trailer 2)

IT (Trailer 2)

Our latest peek at the remake of IT isn’t shy about showing Pennywise, as well as the terrifying the things that await The Losers Club, the foolishly brave kids who want to take him on. Man, we regret watching that with headphones on.

IT in the Hat

Dr. Seuss takes the place of Stephen King as the author in But Without’s remix of the trailer from IT, which replaces the creepy clown with an equally creepy Cat in the Hat. It’s no coincidence that the cat was played by a guy named Michael Myers.

IT (Trailer)
