There are multiple terrors lurking in Christopher Alender’s horror short Kinderfänger. The first is telegraphed by the title, which loosely translates to “child snatcher.” The second, as you can see in the thumbnail below, is a ghoulish, flute-playing creature. The third... well, you’re gonna have to watch and see.
Pennywise was the scariest part of the recent It movie—but some of the human characters were nearly as terrifying, like the older-kid bullies who menaced the Losers Club. Two of those actors are a part of the intriguing cast of It director Andy Muschietti’s adaptation of cult comic Locke & Key.
It’s not uncommon for creators to plan out entire story arcs and sequels in advance, so it’s not ever a surprise to hear that a director has an idea for a sequel to their film. But Josh Boone’s conception of his New Mutants film is intriguing.
Warning: though this clip from tonight’s episode of The Exorcist is a dinner scene, you should absolutely not eat while you watch it. The scene shows the clandestinely demonic Cardinal Guillot (Torrey Hanson) and his various evil associates getting their just desserts... literally. Arya Stark would be proud.
In Happy Death Day, a college student is forced to relive her birthday over and over again. That sounds nice, except for the fact that she’s always, always, murdered at the end of it. To stop the loop, she’ll have to figure out who is killing her.
Excellent news! Sabrina the Teenage Witch is making her way to television again, in a new show from the creative team behind Archie Comics’ other TV adaptation, Riverdale.

If you’re familiar with Japanese horror, you’ve probably heard about the work of Junji Ito—the author behind viral horror stories like The Enigma of Amigara Fault and Uzumaki. Now, some of his most famous spooky tales are being adapted into a new anime anthology show.
There’ve been a lot of haunted houses popping up on screens both large and small lately, including the dreaded 29 Neibolt Street house in It and the trippy centerpiece of Syfy’s Channel Zero: No-End House. That said, spooky houses are a long-running horror staple—and not all are created equal. Here are the ones that…
With today’s news that the long-awaited Ash vs. Evil Dead third season won’t be hitting the airwaves until February 25 (sob), here’s something in the same vein to tide you over: the latest season two trailer for IFC’s similar-but-not-quite-identical Stan Against Evil.
On the heels of director Bill Condon’s remarks that his upcoming Bride of Frankenstein movie would have “nothing to do with” Universal’s Dark Universe comes word that the film will not begin shooting early next year as planned. Instead, the production is taking a time out to rework its script.
It’s Halloween season—the time of year for costumes, candy, and paying your respects to easily angered ancient gods. Er... well, that last one might only apply to the characters in horror short Root of All Evil—whose careless disregard of tradition earns them a hard lesson in the true meaning of Halloween.
Director McG has a wide and varied resume (Charlie’s Angels, Terminator Salvation, The O.C.) but he hasn’t ventured too deeply into horror. And though The Babysitter is technically a horror movie, it looks like it’ll really be a McG movie at heart, with a tongue-in-cheek concept and a stupidly attractive cast. But…
Freddy Krueger’s been dormant since the 2010 Nightmare on Elm Street remake. The 13th Friday the 13th film appears to be on hold indefinitely. The upcoming Halloween do-over sounds promising—but that won’t be in theaters for at least a year. But guess which 1980s slasher villain’s got a brand-new movie out? Hint: he’s…
With Jamie Lee Curtis recently confirming that she’s returning to the Halloween series to play Laurie Strode in the upcoming horror reboot, more casting news was bound to follow.

The Exorcist returns tonight, to the delight of its smallish but passionate fanbase, who have discovered it to be the best horror TV series currently on the air.

There’s been no shortage of fan-made tributes to Stranger Things (remember the cute Peanuts homage, Merry Christmas Will Byers?) But this latest one comes direct from Netflix, and it’s a faux-trailer for Love in the Upside Down—about a girl named Nancy and the two very different dudes vying for her heart.
Just back from a trip, a woman FaceTimes with her house sitter to see how things went. All good, she learns, except that one weird old mirror randomly fell off the wall one day, and shattered into a zillion pieces. Soon, it becomes clear that something is very displeased with this spontaneous bit of redecoration.
By this point, we’re all very familiar with the notion that “humans are the real monsters” in speculative genre work. Mon Mon Mon Monsters takes that idea, kicks it in the balls, and then squeezes a lemon and onion juice cocktail into its eyes. This is a must-see vision of end-stage nihilism.
He’s back, and he’s got a scary new ’do: “Josef” (Mark Duplass), title character of 2014 cult horror movie Creep, returns to torment a freshly plucked-from-Craigslist victim in Creep 2. Even if you’ve sworn off found-footage horror, the Creep series has so much nerve-jangling fun with the genre that you really should…
