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 […]

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 […]

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in News, Uncategorized

  “Keres played a couple major horror conventions in the US such as Spooky Empire and as it’s finished it’s festival run, we’d thought we’d share it online for people to “enjoy” before moving on to other projects.    We’re very proud of the short with people going on to work with Mike Leigh and the newly released ‘Ghost Stories’ not long after it was finished, so we hope our next project we’re looking to fund is another stepping stone for independent talent”   Watch Keres in full below.     KERES from Danny Naylor on Vimeo.
