How well do you know horror movies? Take this 10-question quiz to test your horror movie knowledge in preparation for The Turning, coming to Regal this Friday, January 24th.


With the trailer revealing a unique storyline to the classic movie, we are eager to see what kinds of twists and turns are in store for the story of The Invisible Man. To prepare ourselves for another year of reboots, we are taking a look at all of the upcoming remakes of some of our favorite classic titles!


The Grudge's ghost origin story is rooted to Japanese culture, and served as the basis for the original film as well as the 2004 American remake.


With the awards season upon us, we wanted to pay homage to the titles that reminded us that movies are one of the greatest forms of art. From the reimagined take on a whodunnit movie to the return of Quentin Tarantino, here are just some of the most memorable movies from 2019.


With so many important release dates to remember and trailers to watch, it can be a bit overwhelming. That’s why we’ve put together a guide for some of 2020’s biggest movies, broken down by genre.


So far, we’ve settled the cases of Edward Scissorhands (1990), Die Hard (1988), and Lethal Weapon (1987) and their respective standings as a verified Christmas movie, but there is one more title still up for debate. To put an end to yet another so-called Christmas movie dispute, we are putting the 80’s, comedic-horror classic Gremlins (1984) on trial and laying out our evidence to prove once and for all if this title has earned its place in the holiday movie canon.


Stanley Kubrick's The Shining (1980) has been widely considered as the best big-screen adaptation of a Stephen King novel and has built up one of the largest cult followings in movie history—and for good reason. With the release of Doctor Sleep (the long-awaited sequel to the classic King story) set to arrive at Regal on November 8th, we wanted to pay homage to the movie’s powerful predecessor.


While you may believe that these horror movies are more terrifying to watch than they are to make, there are some who might say otherwise—and countless on-set stories to back them up. In the spirit of the Halloween season, we dug up some of the most haunting behind-the-scenes stories from tormented crew members to cursed movie sets!


Horror movies are so much more than the sum of their parts, but no genre is more dependent on the power of subtle nuances and self-contained episodes to make you feel like you’re being plunged into the madness alongside the characters on screen. To celebrate the Halloween season, we roped together some of the scariest and most chilling movie scenes in horror history!

The concept of Countdown, the new horror/thriller from writer/director Justin Dec and STX Entertainment, features a popular app that claims to predict the exact moment of one's death, an idea that originated from a smartphone timer.


Whether you have actually seen it or not, The Blair Witch Project (1999) may be one of the most recognizable horror movies in the genre—and we may never see another movie quite like it again, or at least one that will draw as much panic and disturbance the way this movie did.

Zombieland 2 features a number of familiar faces, including cameos from Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd as fictionalized versions of themselves. The sequel also introduces a few new characters to the apocalyptic world. Here's a breakdown of the cast and characters, and where you've probably seen the actors before.


It's been a few years since Robert Eggers made his arrival to the industry with his debut movie, The Witch (2015) (fully titled The VVitch: A New England Folktale), a mystery/horror that earned him a lot of recognition at Sundance in 2015 and is still ranked as one of the top horror movies of the decade by many cult fans and genre buffs. Now, we see his sophomore effort with The Lighthouse, a psychological arthouse thriller set to arrive at select Regal theatres October 25th.


Would you want to know exactly when you’re going to die? If your answer is yes, then you’re in luck, because there’s an app for that—at least there is in Countdown, the new horror/thriller from writer/director Justin Dec and STX Entertainment. We had the opportunity to speak with writer/director Justin Dec on his debut feature, favorite theatre snack, and much more.


Horror may be the most ‘tropey’ genre of movies, using and re-using concepts and familiar settings over and over, but many of these tried and true devices have resulted in some of the best scares in movie history!

Well, it’s officially the Halloween season, which means it’s finally time to justifiably watch all of those iconically cliché horror movies. So for all of you movie (and horror) fans out there, we compiled a short list of some of Hollywood’s biggest stars who got their start in scary movies.


Ewan McGregor stars as Danny Torrance in the Stephen King adaptation Doctor Sleep, the follow-up to the widely acclaimed movie, The Shining (1980). We find the now grown Danny in his forties and still recovering from the trauma of his near-death at the Overlook hotel in his youth. From the Doctor Sleep trailer, it appears that Danny will be returning to the Overlook Hotel to confront the evils that haunt him, as well as his counterpart, Abra (played by Kyliegh Curran).


John Krasinski returns to write and direct A Quiet Place 2, set to be released on March 20, 2020. He announced today on social media that filming for the highly anticipated sequel has officially wrapped.


On the surface these movies are energy-filled action stories, but zombie movies have often served as platforms to share social commentary on human nature and our own inner demons. With the release of Zombieland: Double Tap set for October 18, we thought we would highlight some of the best zombie movies of all time!


Lovers on the run, Mickey and Jules, head south to Florida in search of a fresh start, committing crimes along the way in true Bonnie & Clyde style.
