Wrong Turn 2021

Woke Horror is just not sustainable… That’s pretty much the takeaway from the Wrong Turn reboot, a reimagining scripted by Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and the writer of the first film in the franchise, Alan B. McElroy. And it’s been a question facing horror for a few years now. We’ve seen it […]

Suffering of Ninkoi review

Valentine’s greetings to you from Straight Outta Kanto! What would you do, dear readers, if you found yourself in a situation where hordes of bare-breasted lust filled women chased you through rural Edo period Japan in the hopes of making sweet, sweet love with you? No! No need to tell me. I can imagine that […]

The words “for better or for worse, til death do us part” weren’t framed with the challenges lovebirds of horror face, however death often does part them. The writers at Grimoire of Horror have put together a list of our favorite horror couples featuring tales of love that are sometimes tender, sometimes tragic, mostly horrific, […]

Stalking the night, with the pallor of a corpse, thirsting for the blood of humans, living amongst the plague-ridden vermin and predatory beasts. Throughout the centuries, they have gone by many names — Galli, Empusa, Alukah, Estries — but we know them most commonly today as Vampires. Since the early days of civilization, the specter […]

Meat Grinder Thai Horror Film

Konnichiwa! Ni Hao! Dia Duit! Straight Outta Kanto here to put you off your dinner with the 2009 stomach churning Thai horror Meat Grinder. On the surface Tiwa Moeithaisong‘s splatter fest may appear to be nothing more than a gratuitous, exploitative ‘torture porn.’ However, Meat Grinder isn’t so much a roller coaster ride through a […]

Takashi miike Box

Box can be called confusing, to say the least.  It is a deeply psychological drama with a sheer disturbing quality that could make it easily seen as part of the horror genre. Both the visuals and the narrative are surreal, more of a bizarre dream than a recounting The visuals are very artistic as well, […]

Dark and the wicked feature

Off of the back of our best of 2020 list came a slew of recommendations through both our facebook pages, The Yurei and The Banshee. Out of multiple titles recommended, one stood out to me with some glowing praise for The Dark and the Wicked by Bryan Bertino. Off the kinds words of the community, I […]

2020 has been a turbulent year, with many productions being delayed into 2021, or outright canceled. However, that did not stop some great films from coming out in 2020. Here at the Grimoire we reached out to our writers and contributors of the site and our Facebook pages, The Banshee and The Yurei, and asked […]

Despite the belief that this humble viewer may have been drawn in by such a provocative title, Porno, (also cringingly known as Fangoria’s Porno) premise was enough to pique my interest. On the promise of seeing horror in a theater (remember those?), Satanism and hints of homage to exploitation films of the golden era, I decided […]

Though I am not really one to discredit an entire nation’s cinema, you would be hard pressed to find anyone who will state that Ukraine is a powerhouse of film. Additionally, notable genre films from that region are virtually non-existent. So, when I found out about a Lovecraftian horror film from Ukraine that had some […]
