SXSW Review: Scary Haunted Mirror Horror 'Oculus' | The Playlist
Director Mike Flanagan also helped edit the film, and the movie is ridiculously tight. Even with the two timelines, two sets of actors playing the same character, fantasy elements that intermingle with what is actually happening, and a scary ghoul with glowing eyes, there isn't an ounce of fat on "Oculus." It's easily the scariest movie since "The Conjuring," and in some ways is a deeper and more satisfying film. It's stylish but not showy, more concerned with the thematic undercurrents coursing just beneath the surface. In "Oculus," the lead characters are deeply disturbed adults who are trying desperately to move on with their lives. Almost everyone is haunted by some aspect of their past. What "Oculus" suggests is that you have to move on… or you'll pay the ultimate price. [B+]
SXSW Review: Horror 'Among The Living' From 'Inside' Directors Julien Maury & Alexandre Bustillo | The Playlist
This could have been a perfect, meta-textual opportunity for the directors to comment on horror movies in general and their movie in particular. Instead, it's a lot of people coughing up blood and slicing each others faces' off, followed by a coda so sugary sweet that it gave us a toothache. That's probably the movie's biggest surprise: that the guys behind "Inside" finished up a movie this sappily. [D]
SXSW Review: Scary Good Mark Duplass Midnight Movie 'Creep' | The Playlist
Found footage horror movies have, thus far, documented spooky ghosts, super scary missions to the moon, and whatever the hell goes on in the "V/H/S" movies, but none of them have been this dedicated to character -- and they have never, ever been this weird. "Creep" is a tiny movie whose uniqueness feels positively seismic. If there's one thing "Creep" has, it's an abundance of personality, and that cannot be understated. If producer Jason Blum made the found footage horror movie commonplace in the multiplex, then this is a thankful return to art house strangeness and announces, in Brice, a bold new voice in the horror genre; he's scary good.
