Review: The Dark

Posted Leave a commentPosted in newest reviews, Review, Zombie

Tweet Review‘The Dark’, another of the years festival movies to have made an impact on both fans and press alike is coming to Blu-ray and DVD this autumn. Take note to, it was a competitive summer! The plot: Following his abduction and subsequent slaying of his captor, a blind teenager Alex finds an unlikely guardian in Mina, an undead teenager who haunts and hunts in the woods aptly nicknamed ‘The Devil’s Den’. Once they meet, they form a strong bond, instinctively protective of each other, a connection which is both catalysed and strengthened by their own abusive pasts. The story […]

Review: Night of the Creeps

Posted Leave a commentPosted in newest reviews, Review, Zombie

Tweet ReviewIn simple terms my review of Eureka’s Blu-ray release of the 1987 classic ‘Night of the Creeps’ can be summarised in two words: “Buy it”. From start to finish this sci-fi zombie crossover is an absolute blast, putting a host of fun characters into a nightmare scenario which showcases all the best ingredients from Horror’s heyday decade, in a HD-remastered ‘deluxe’ package. The plot pitches a prom princess and her geek admirer against a legion of the walking dead, controlled by a worm-like alien parasites which enters the mouths of the unsuspecting coeds. As the night draws to its […]

Review: Epidemic

Posted Leave a commentPosted in newest reviews, Review, Zombie

Tweet ReviewSharing more similarities with outbreak films such as ‘Cabin Fever’, with just a little nod to other body horror movies than your standard zombie flick, Giglio’s ‘Epidemic’ utilises familiar elements from a number of genres to ensure his character driven movie makes the right impression. The plot revolves around a mysterious, flesh consuming infection which is brought to Dana’s (Morales) 30th birthday party by an unwitting friend. As well as being a landmark birthday number Dana was hoping this year was the year her and her estranged alcoholic father Rufus (Hunsicker) would be brought closer together; and he’s intent […]

Review: The Cured

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: Dawning of the Dead

Posted Leave a commentPosted in newest reviews, Review, Zombie

Tweet ReviewI got to say, whilst releasing a non-festive themed Zombie movie right at the start of the season might seem like an odd choice, I was more than pleasantly surprised to see that the sick artwork was backed up by an equally sick little flick. Whilst Tony Jopia’s ‘Dawning of the Dead’ isn’t going to trailblaze the genre into a (much needed) new direction, it certainly packs enough of a punch to get a recommendation from me – and punch well above its weight it does to. The plot, a usual hash up of conspiracy, science gone wrong, some […]

Review: I Am Alone

Tweet ReviewFilmed on location in the majestic Colodrado Rockies we join Jacob Fitts, a survivalist reporter documenting his final and most challenging show of ‘I am Alone’ to date; and what better than the ultimate survival scenario – the end of the world as we know it, the Zombpocalypse. ‘I am Alone’ is a found footage film by director Robert A. Palmer and what a corker it is. “Grab yourself a front row seat to the end of the world”, thank you sir, don’t mind if I do. The film begins in a military base where one of the three […]

Review: ARZombi (iOS game)

Posted Leave a commentPosted in newest reviews, Review, Zombie

Tweet ReviewARZombi is, as the title would suggest, an augmented reality zombie survival game in the vein of COD zombies as you try to survive the zombie apocalypse from the comfort of your living room. Available on iOS 11, all you need to get going is a compatible device, a living room of a decent size (5m x 5m is what was suggested to me from the developers) and a pair of shin pads. Ok, the latter is more of a BTG recommendation! Or of course you could ensure living room floor is clear of kids toys before playing. They […]

Review: Zombie World (short story)

Posted Leave a commentPosted in newest reviews, Review, Zombie

Tweet ReviewEstablished author Michael R Martin unleashes the proverbial horde from his creative mind in ‘Zombie World’, a short story which blurs reality, virtual reality and reality soon to be! Joining four friends on a highly anticipated “stag weekend from hell” we discover their trip to ‘Zombie World’, a state of the art zombie apocalypse style VR game which delivers far more virtual reality than they anticipated. Are they controlling the game or being played themselves? The poignant question which reflects the cautionary subtext of how VR and potential obsession with hedonism and ‘alternate lives’ could be detrimental to our […]

Review: Big Tits Zombie

Posted Leave a commentPosted in newest reviews, Review, Zombie

Tweet ReviewLet’s be honest here there’s probably but a few reasons you are watching this, either because the title says ‘big tits’ in it, you really like your zombie films or its the scantily clad Japanese models on the front cover that enticed you to make a snap purchase. I have no regret in stating that I ticked all 3 boxes. The story reveals a group of strippers in a small grimy town, working for free. When the girls stumble upon a hidden door it leads them to an underground section of the club where one of the girls (who […]

Review: American Mummy

Tweet ReviewBefore writing this review, I took a moment to reflect on my experiences as a father, and the morals which I hope to pass on to my 3-year-old son. As part of my contemplation I considered my response to a recent stand-off with the boy: “it wasn’t me daddy [who through my breakfast all over your laptop], it was a Tyrannosaurus Rex” – “Nathaniel”, I said calmly, “it is not ok to lie”. Now whilst I wouldn’t consider myself a proper journalist by any stretch, I do feel an obligation to report the truth, and whilst a little exaggeration […]
