Movie Review- Wrong Turn (2021)

The first Wrong Turn film was released in 2003, which was soon followed by six sequels. After seven films in total, the franchise had exhausted all creative potential. It was revived this year with Wrong Turn (2021, dir. Mike P. Nelson), based on a script by Alan McElroy, who penned the inceptual film. The filmContinue reading “Movie Review- Wrong Turn (2021)”

Movie Review- Fear Street Part 1: 1994 (2021)

Written by the renowned horror author R.L Stine, the Fear Street series debuted with the The New Girl, which was first published in 1989. The original series, which spanned fifty-one books, was aimed at an older audience, was considerably more darker than Stine’s more child-friendly flagship series Goosebumps. Its popularity has persisted into the modernContinue reading “Movie Review- Fear Street Part 1: 1994 (2021)”

Movie Review- Prevenge (2016)- Psycho Killer, Qui Est Enceinte

The concept of pregnancy is inherently horrifying- sharing your body with another rapidly growing lifeform who leeches off your nutrients. This has been explored in countless horror films, through the invasive gestation of the iconic Xenomorph from Ridley Scott’s groundbreaking science-fiction/horror fusion Alien (1979) to the toe-curlingly uncomfortable Grace (2009). However, writer/director Alice Lowe’s horror-comedyContinue reading “Movie Review- Prevenge (2016)- Psycho Killer, Qui Est Enceinte”

TV Review- Midnight Mass (2021)- Hell’s Angels

Movie Review- Murder Death Koreatown (2020)- Ghouls on Film

The first found-footage horror film is widely considered to be Ruggero Deodato’s 1980 controversial gore-fest Cannibal Holocaust, which presents itself as the lost final footage of a group of doomed documentarians. The effects were considered so realistic that the director was accused of making a snuff film by Italian authorities and had produce his actorsContinue reading “Movie Review- Murder Death Koreatown (2020)- Ghouls on Film”

First Look- Scream (2022)

With Halloween rapidly approaching, the first trailer for the fifth Scream movie was recently released and I must say, I found myself pleasantly surprised. While I had some hesitations over the continuation of the franchise following the death of its original director, the legendary Wes Craven, the fact that it was being helmed by RadioContinue reading “First Look- Scream (2022)”

Movie Review- C.H.U.D. (1984)- The Terror Beneath

A blood-soaked creature feature, like its titular monsters, C.H.U.D (Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller), has managed to lurch out of the night and into cult status, being referenced throughout popular culture, from The Simpsons to Castle and even receiving an ill-fated sequel C.H.U.D. 2: Bud the Chud (1987). The plot centres around photographer George Cooper (JohnContinue reading “Movie Review- C.H.U.D. (1984)- The Terror Beneath”

Movie Review- Goodnight Mommy (2014)- Mother Knows Worst

Often, the most emotionally affecting films are those revolving around the violation of the domestic space and the family dynamic- The Exorcist (1973), Poltergeist (1982) The Bad Seed (1956) and Hereditary (2018). The idea that the evil can pervade our most sacrosanct home is more terrifying than any promiscuous teenager- mutilating slasher.
