Halloween Movies for Kids and Cowards: Part III

For the past two years, Audiences Everywhere has compiled a list of relatively tame and child-friendly horror movies to watch on Halloween. This year, we’ve decided to up the scariness factor on these movies just a little in order to help you overcome your fears and maybe learn a few life lessons along the way.

You can read their answers below and add yours in the comments. The Matrix In 1999, The Matrix was released; I was 11 and not ready for it at all both as a movie and as a basic introduction to philosophy. The fear starts when Neo wakes violently in a vat of gelatinous goo (liquefied dead people, we later find out.) Covered in sockets and holes, he becomes...

5 Board Games That Should Be Horror Movies

With the success of Universal’s Ouija franchise, we got to thinking about other board games that would make for great horror movies directed by some of the genre’s biggest names. Parents and guardians, feel free to thank us later. Tobe Hooper’s Guess Who Six strangers wake up in a derelict house. Taped to the wall are 24 photographs of people close to each of these six people—four for each person.

10 Directors for Deadpool 2

In a rather shocking turn of events, or at least shocking in the world of comic book movies, Deadpool director Tim Miller has dropped out of the sequel, with Deadline citing creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds. Naturally, there are a handful of rumors about what these creative differences revolved around, but we’re interested in looking at the franchise’s future.

All seven films range from the brilliant to the frustrating to the downright awful. But even the worst films were still successful, and still had interesting ideas and imaginative death scenes – except for the 2010 remake, which isn’t even worth talking about. The breakout star wasn’t Heather Langenkamp, or even Johnny Depp, but Freddy Krueger himself. Robert Englund’s performance was a...

10 Movies That Should Be Video Games

In honor of Video Game Day, Jack Godwin and Diego Crespo have taken it upon ourselves to imagine what it would be like to imagine feature films as video games.

In the near-future, virtual reality game pods are attached via bio-ports into players’ spines through technological umbilical cords. Two...
