  • Ti West's affectionate homage to no-frills fright flicks keeps it simple and succeeds on its own stripped-down terms. show more

  • Keep your big-budget horror movie expectations locked away in a separate crawl space, because this grainy feature debut from writer-director Ti West demands that you buy into the silliness, and the cheese. show more

  • It's clear right away that The Roost is no hack job. It's made by people who have a major love for the genre and generally anything that goes bump in the night. show more
