Posted on Leave a commentPosted in newest reviews, Review, Zombie

Tweet Review‘The Cured’ has already been unleashed to much critical applaud in the run up to its release. Lauded for being the latest movie offer a refreshing ‘touch up’ to the shambling corpse of horrors most adored sub-genre. Like the feral hordes depicted, zombie movies in general take a bit of a beating! Fans and critics alike seem to have a real love-hate relationship with the majority of fodder released under genre label; hence, when the verdict on a newly released Zombie flick is unanimously praised for its efforts, its well worth your time to check out. The plot of […]

Review: Jurassic Games

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Creature, newest reviews, Review

Tweet ReviewGo on then, I will bite. No matter what anyone says marketing and timing I feel counts for a large proportion of a films success. If like myself, you are pumped for ‘Jurassic Kingdom’ then you are probably watching absolutely anything in it with dinosaurs at the moment! Despite my wife giving this one a miss based on the trailer alone, I couldn’t leave it be. Question is ‘Jurassic Games’ the feature-saurus Rex or a big steaming pile of dino-dung? Read on… The plot follows ‘contestants’ of a futuristic game where the inmates on death-row sign up to fight […]

Review: The Lighthouse

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in newest reviews, Review, Supernatural

Tweet ReviewWell played sirs, well played indeed. Writer/director Chris Crow delivers us a slow burn piece of period-horror done right in ‘The Lighthouse’. Possibly best described as a drama with a creepy conclusion, the films minimal number of characters and differing environments, and the heavy reliance on dialogue, sees the film more akin to a recorded stage production than what you might consider a modern horror release. If you were hoping this film would have GCI ghosts popping out of the shadows of a haunted lighthouse then perhaps give this review a skip, but if the thought of a traditional […]

Review: Darkness Reigns

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in newest reviews, Review, Supernatural

Tweet ReviewThe ever-popular Casper Van Dien starts in ‘Darkness Reigns’, a slightly better than average POV horror about a demonic attack on a group of film-makers who make an ill-fated attempt to make a horror film on location of an ‘actual’ haunted hotel. The film opens as our ever vigilant POV camera team are tasked to record all the ‘behind the scenes’ footage for a pre-production horror film which the director hopes will be a hit. The aforementioned Casper Van plays himself as the productions lead ‘name’ and with him on board the film crew are all assembled for the […]

Review: Gehenna – Where Death Lives

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in newest reviews, Review, Supernatural

Tweet Review‘Gehenna: Where Death Lives’ boasts a wealth of talent both behind and in front of the camera to bring its claustrophobic and psychological horror out from the depths of the bunker into our living rooms. The synopsis: Gehenna fixes on five people who enter a hidden bunker from WW2, and realize it’s way more than a bunker. Some fates are MUCH worse than death. After the films somewhat unexpected opener, set in ancient time, which sees the imprisoning of a terrified gent into a stone tomb the film doesn’t waste anytime setting its rather limited story up. First time […]

Review: Your flesh, Your Curse

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in newest reviews, Review, Splatter/Gore

Tweet ReviewWritten and directed by Kasper Juhl, Your flesh, Your Curse is a gritty, emotional film sitting firmly on the extreme side of horror and whilst it is sure to leave you feeling numb it’s a standout release. The film revolves around Juliet White (Marie-Louise Damgaard Nielsen), a young troubled girl whom has clearly had it rough. We are shown a conversation with her father indicating she was abused in the past – leading to a life fuelled by drugs, alcohol and prostitution. After a particularly heavy session Juliet overdoses in a secluded woodland spot, a random stranger passing by […]

Review: Hell’s Kitty

Tweet ReviewI’m not going to lie, I am not a subtle man, nor am I in any way a particularly mature 34-year-old. As such I would like you to consider this as you read my review of the innuendo ladened ‘Hell’s Kitty’, which, regardless of the films overall quality (which is low budget to say the least), it’s plot (which is essentially a chapter by chapter montage of kill sequences involving the titular cat) had me at the line: “Help, my pussy’s possessed!” The official synopsis: “Nick (Nicholas Tana), a Hollywood screenwriter, discovers his cat has become murderously possessed, and […]

Review: At Granny’s House

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Giallo/Thriller, newest reviews, Review

Tweet ReviewA bizarre mixture of drama and bloodless slasher, ‘Granny’s House’ is a somewhat enjoyable watch, even if its not exactly easy to put my finger on exactly what makes it as such. The Synopsis: A Hitchcockian thriller with twists and turns, made for the YouTube generation with its depictions of the ubiquity and downside of cell-phone usage and connectivity thru social media, At Granny’s House is the story of a young caregiver with a dark agenda moves into an elderly woman’s house. Soon, Granny’s house becomes a macabre place of death – and love. The synopsis, although perhaps an […]

Tweet ReviewHot on the heels of other more recent Irish film successes ‘Beyond the Woods’ hopes to deliver new chills from the Emerald isle. The films plot sees seven friends meet up in the Irish countryside for a secluded weekend getaway. Oddly a sulphur smelling sinkhole has opened in the mountains nearby filling the area with pungent fumes.  Despite the distraction of the stench the group decide not to let the noxious atmosphere get to them. Its not long before tensions in the group rise and they begin to experience bizarre and disturbing hallucinations.  As the official synopsis states: What […]

Review: Terrifier

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in newest reviews, Review, Splatter/Gore

Tweet ReviewIf the ‘killer clown’ trend of 2018 is finally coming to an end ‘Terrifier’ ensures it goes off in gruesome style. In recent times I have watched and reviewed all manner of Clown inspired horror films from the spooky to the macabre – Terrifier on the other hand… a whole new level. The film opens with the feel of a throwback slasher. Two young girls staggering home from a party meet with ‘Art’ the clown on the dark and fateful Halloween night. Amused at first, the less sensible of the pair begins to goad the mute antagonist insisting on […]
