    The last few years have been really good for horror. The indie front has led the charge with recent standout films like The Babadook, It Follows, and The Witch, and regular contributions from exciting genre filmmakers like Ti West and Adam Wingard, among others. But even in what is proving to be such a rich market of genre filmmakers, there is perhaps no other director out there at the moment with a greater gift for horror set-pieces than James Wan. Wan announced himself as a formidable voice in the horror scene back in 2004 with his stateside debut Saw, …

    Saw went on a tear of movies from 2004 to 2010, but has lain dormant since. Back in 2014, we reported that producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules were interested in reviving the series. At the time the producers said: We kind of wanted to build it up. Our goal is to go to Comic-Con, not next summer but the summer after [2016] with our heads up saying, ‘Here we go.’ James and Leigh are comfortable with the success they’ve had. And it’s time. James is in post on his movie. Leigh’s on post on [Insidious …

    If there's one thing you can almost always count on in a horror movie, it's a body count, but the way those bodies pile up is infinitely varied. Kill scenes can be funny, devastating, scary, disgusting, and horrific, but some movies opt to settle on plain old weird. Stabbings are the standard, suffocations are a dime a dozen; machetes, crossbows, and hatchets all dominate the genre, but plenty of films and franchises aren't content to rely on the standbys. Particularly in the decades since slasher films started placing an emphasis on effects-driven kill sequences, and franchising …

    Much like the 1970s before it, the decade between 2000-2009 was a particularly fruitful era in the horror genre spawned by a climate of international turmoil and rapid technological advancements in the filmmaking industry. In the post-9/11 era, America was thrust into a paranoid, war-fuelled anxiety and grief, and with the internet fully emerging as a dominant force behind modern culture, those anxieties were shared globally as each and every new horrific worldwide event was broadcast in crystal clear detail onto the computer screens of international households. The flipside of that technological advancement was the emergence …

    There are a handful of things that can turn a memorable horror movie into an iconic one: a thrilling and original conceit, a franchise-worthy serial killer, and jaw-dropping effects come to mind. But an all-important element of a successful horror movie is one that can't be gleaned from posters and casting reports, or even most trailers. The score of a horror movie, from a memorable theme, to an atmospheric enhancement of scenes, right down to the closing credits, can elevate a good film to a great one, with the best standing the test of time. With …

    It's Sunday, which means it's time for the horror haul, our weekly round-up and one-stop-shop for all things horror. This week in horror we got all kinds of goods on Alien: Covenant, including two new trailers and a whole bunch of details from my set visit reports (see below). We also had some great coverage on Get Out, which continues to be a force, and early (middling) reviews for Kong: Skull Island. Elsewhere, it looks like the sequel to Andy Muschietti's It movie might already be gearing up for production, which would bode very …

    It’s Sunday, which means it’s time for the horror haul, our weekly round-up and one-stop-shop for all things horror. This week in horror, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, one of the most influential horror shows of all time.

    After seven years out of the game, the Saw franchise is heading back to theaters this fall with its eighth installment and it looks like they're planning to bring things full circle -- at least when it comes to the title. The film has been going under the working title Saw: Legacy for the last few months, but it was revealed today that the official title is ... (drum roll) ... Jigsaw. And there's a fancy new title treatment to go with it (see below). Jigsaw is, of course, the murderous mastermind behind the mechanical horrors designed to test his victim'…

Plus, new trailers for the slasher Jackals, Another Wolfcop …

    Ahead of Jigsaw's appearance at San Diego Comic-Con next week, Lionsgate has revealed the first image for the upcoming eighth film in the Saw franchise. Directed by Predestination and Daybreakers helmers Peter and Michael Spierig, from a script by Pete Goldfinger, Josh Stolberg, James Wan, and Leigh Whannell, Jigsaw is set to revive the once-dominant Saw franchise, which has grossed more than $800 million worldwide. However, the directors are bringing a new approach to the material, which Michael Spierig describes as a "more fun" spin on the franchise, but still with plenty of gore (naturally). This sounds …

    Fans of the Saw franchise, originally created by neo-horror veterans James Wan and Leigh Whannell, will find a lot of familiar territory in the first trailer for the eighth installment, Jigsaw. That's not just because some of the deadly traps and manipulative measures used in the previous seven films make an appearance here, but because the title killer himself appears to be behind a new rash of gruesome guilt-kills. The investigators into these serial killings are flummoxed by this fact, considering that John Kramer (Tobin Bell) was killed years ago in Saw III. This twist on the …

    It’s that time of year again, when the theme parks go all out for Halloween events, and nobody does Halloween fright quite like Universal Studios, with their history of making horror films for over 80 years.

    The mysteries of Jigsaw continue to grow. The Saw franchise returns this Halloween for the eighth installment, and after seven years away, the dominant horror franchise of the early aughts is getting a bit of a revamp and it's not just the snazzy new title. Neither Carey Elwes nor Costas Mandylor, aka Jigsaw's best-known apprentices, are expected to return and the powers that be are keeping the plot under wraps with a simple logline that reads: “One of the highest grossing Horror franchises of all time is back, taking the Jigsaw killer’s signature brand of twisted …

    Haunted Houses are up and running, there's a pumpkin patch on every corner, and the debate over whether candy corn is actually good is raging once again. Halloween season is in full swing!

Fortunately, Netflix has a pretty strong selection of Halloween favorites this year no matter what you're looking for, and we've narrowed down the list to the best, scariest, and downright fun movies …

    If one were to have never seen Saw, the production and release of James Wan’s first film would come off as a familiarly inspiring Hollywood narrative. Straight out of film school, Wan partnered with Leigh Whannell and they penned a script about a secretive serial killer who builds elaborate death traps for those who he feels are ungrateful and unworthy of the miracle of life. They shot the film over 18 days for a little more than a million. Plans were set to have the movie released straight to DVD before Lionsgate took an interest and put the movie …

    After seven long years (or not long enough depending on who you're asking), the Saw franchise is back in theatres with Jigsaw. It's been a hot minute since "torture porn" was a thing so it will be interesting to see if the once dominant Halloween staple can make a return to form this weekend, or if the current tastes have drifted away from the divisive franchise built on the gluttonous gore and mean-spirited taste for blood. How do the Saw films hold up now? As a franchise, Saw is fascinating, even if it's never quite as …
