Netflix Releases New Clip for ‘Malevolent’

Published

on

This Friday will mark the premier of a number of horror movies, so you better catch up on your sleep as there will be a lot on your horror movie plate this weekend, and Netflix has released a brand new clip of their flick ‘Malevolent’ which drops October 5th.

Per the synopsis:

“Brother and sister team Angela (Pugh) and Jackson (Ben Lloyd-Hughes) are nothing more than scam artists. Preying on the grief-stricken and the vulnerable, they convince the bereaved that Angela has the ability to contact the dead. It’s a simple con, until Mrs. Green (Celia Imrie) summons the pair to her home — the orphanage that was once stage to a string of murders of young girls — and Angela grows less and less certain of what’s actually real. The fake paranormal investigators suffer the ultimate reality check when they are confronted by the true horrors and terrifying past that lie hidden within the haunted orphanage.”

A brand new clip has arrived, courtesy of Bloody-Disgusting, which you can see below.

REVIEW: Hold the Dark

Published

on

Netflix’s ‘Hold the Dark’ is not your traditional horror movie, but the undertone of Dustin Garneau’s movie starring Jeffrey Wright, Alexander Skarsgard, James Badge Dale, and Riley Keough is of a dreadful, dark, sinister secret that holds a town within it’s grasp.

The majestic Alaskan landscapes are speckled with a horror that seems, at first glance, attributed to wolves, who we are led to believe are preying on young children who steer too far into the woods.

The synopsis says, “Summoned to a remote Alaskan village to search for the wolves that killed three children, a wolf expert soon finds himself unravelling a harrowing mystery.”

The story centers on wolf expert Russell Core (Wright) who answers a call up to the Alaskan wilderness by grieving mother Medora Sloane (Keough) to hunt down the wolves that she believes are responsible for the death of her son.

A twist turns her husband, Vernon, who just returned from a tour in Iraq, into a revenge-thirsty hunter who goes to a dark place to hunt down and kill who is responsible for his son’s death.

The movie has a lot of surprises hidden in it’s slow, methodical pace, and includes betrayal, a massacre, shootouts, murder, incest, and the reuniting of long-lost family members.

While Hold the Dark’s plot is interesting, and the acting is strong, the movie’s dull pace slows down any momentum the plot builds with it’s endless twists, turns, and wrinkles. All in all, it’s a solid movie, but one that can lose a viewer with it’s pacing.

If you’re wide awake, then this movie is worth it, otherwise the slow pace may lull you to sleep before you get to the meaty parts of the film’s plot.
