The Modern Stuff

This month is actually kind of sad for horror films this year, but there are thankfully some great options available on demand that have come out throughout the year. The ABCs of Death 2 is a mixed bag, but the folks who made the shorts based on letters D, H, K, S, U, V, X, Y and Z really turned it out, and there's a good chance that the Soska sisters could give the See No Evil series a much-needed kick in the ass with their sequel. But the two that are ideal for any horror fans marathon this year are Leigh Janiak's Honeymoon, an often-unsettling play on relationship dramas that dives into good ol' sci-fi and body horror territory and leaves plenty to the imagination, and one of the year's best: Coherence. It's a low-budget sci-fi flick, but it's damn great, and can be best described as an episode of Twilight Zone directed by Shane Carruth.
