Splatter Roundup: Stuff I’ve Watched Lately

Wolf Creek The Series

The Boy (2016) Oof. I know when they released this they were trying to capitalize on the “Annabelle” craze, but they tried to pack too much into this thing instead of just making a solid murderous doll movie. An American woman gets a job as a nanny to an older couple’s “Boy” — who, as

RINGS

{cross-posted to Three Imaginary Girls}  It’s been 12 years since The Ring 2 (TWELVE?!?!

The Ward

I was surfing through the streaming options today and got very excited when I saw that John Carpenter’s The Ward was available…but sadly, it didn’t quite live up to my expectations. Everything about the sets and the atmosphere was just right. There’s really nothing creepier than a mental institution, let alone one out in the
