7 of the Best Military Horror Movies

“I hate war only as a solider who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity.” ~ Dwight D Eisenhower

War is hell and a horror in and of itself. It is not pleasant; it is shocking. There is nothing good about it, and it doesn’t really resolve anything. It changes one’s state of mind when having to live through it, changing that person into someone different, and they are never the same again.

Taking the horror of war and injecting it with other supernatural attire has made what I’ve found to be some of the most brilliant horror movies out there. Here are a few of the best, in no particular order.

Dog Soldiers (2002)

This is one of my all time favorite movies. Starring some great actors like Kevin McKid and Liam Cunningham, it is truly not only one of the best written military horror movies but also one of the best werewolf horror movies as well.

Deathwatch (2002)

Set in WWI, the film follows a group of British soldiers stuck in a trench along the front of the enemy line along with a German soldier whom they’ve captured.  They find that there is evil lurking amongst them… or is it just in their own minds?

The Objective (2008)

This one is set in more modern times in Afghanistan. Superstitions and paranoia run high in the desert for these soldiers, and nothing is what it seems. I found this movie to be intriguing, and it kept me interested to the end.

Giallo Makes A Comeback With Crystal Eyes

Published

on

The giallo genre has somewhat fallen off the radar in recent years, but that’s all about to change with the new Argentinian film Crystal Eyes (original title: Mirada de Cristal). Set in 1985, the film’s about a series of murders taking place in the glamorous and colorful fashion world, so it sounds like a true giallo throwback.

Crystal Eyes was directed by Ezequiel Endelman and Leandro Montejano, and stars Silvia Montanari, Anahí Politi, Erika Boveri, and Claudio Armesto. It screened at both the Mar del Plata International Film Festival and the Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre Film Festival, and received a great audience reception at both. We were sent the trailer for the film along with the poster and a bunch of lobby cards, which we proudly present below.

Investigate The Paranormal In The X-Files: Deep State Mobile Game

Published

on

“The X-Files” franchise will turn 25 next year, and what better way to celebrate than with the launch of a new video game? That’s right, the mobile game The X-Files: Deep State will be released in February 2018, and, in the style of the show, will feature a story about aliens and government conspiracies. The events of the game will take place in the year 2010, between seasons nine and ten of the show.

The X-Files: Deep State is being developed by Creative Mobile Games and will be published by FoxNext, and as with the majority of mobile games these days, will be free to play with in-game purchases.

Meanwhile, season 11 of “The X-Files” TV series will premiere on January 3, 2018. Which may be its last hurrah, because I dread to think what Disney will do with the franchise if they ultimately do end up purchasing 20th Century Fox.
