And The Award For The Most Disturbing Horror Poster Of The Year Goes To……..


Make it stop!  Make it stop!!!!  Perhaps I’m overreacting because I’m deathly afraid of spiders, but this may be the most unnerving horror movie poster ever. Just glancing at it makes you envision what it would be and feel like to have your eyes forced open while tiny spiders crawl all over them and your face. Shudder.  Kudos to those involved with the marketing for Phobia and I’m not even sure if something like this happens in the actual movie, but based on the poster alone, I’ll be watching.

For those who are interested in seeing and knowing more about Phobia, it will be going the DVD route on November 25th.  I’m always down for supporting the indie horror films, and hopefully Phobia can live up to the hype of the poster. Check out the new trailer below too, but I’m sorry to report that no spiders on the eyeballs are shown.  I’m sure that you all are extremely crushed.

Anticipation Alert: Oculus (2014)

If you ever had a fear of accidentally biting into a lightbulb when you thought you were biting into an apple, then you might not want to watch the trailer for the new supernatural horror movie, Oculus.  If you do have that fear and are still brave enough to give it whirl, feel free to click below and we’ll discuss afterward why this is on my Anticipation Alert radar.

Even if I didn’t know that Oculus was receiving high praise from it’s early screenings, that trailer would have sold me anyway.  Sure, I’m kind of over the whole supernatural sub-genre of horror movies, but something looks right about this one to me.  The creepy ass antique mirror perhaps?  The creepy ass lightbulbs?  As I was driving in to work today, I saw a billboard up on the side of the road.  And the other night there was TV spot on.  So it looks like Oculus is getting a proper push after all of that good buzz from the festival outings.  Is it this year’s The Conjuring?  Seems like a definite possibility. Look for it to hit select theaters on April 11th and until then, eat your apples carefully.
