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”

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- 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. Veronika Franz andContinue reading “Movie Review- Goodnight Mommy (2014)- Mother Knows Worst”

TV Review- High Rise Invasion (2021)- Battle Banal

Japan is no slouch in the horror department. Some of the darkest tales of all time have originated from the land of the rising sun, including Ringu, The Grudge and the entire bibliography of Junji Ito. One recent work has been of High Rise Invasion, a popular horror-action manga written by Tsuina Muira and illustratedContinue reading “TV Review- High Rise Invasion (2021)- Battle Banal”

Movie Review- Uncle Peckerhead (2020)- Ghoul to be Kind

‘Friends don’t let friends drive drunk’, as the old slogan goes- neither should they let them consume human flesh. Aspiring singer Judy (Chet Segel)’s dreams of punk- rock stardom come one step closer to being released when she quits her dead-end bakery job to go on tour with her band DUH, which includes Scott (DavidContinue reading “Movie Review- Uncle Peckerhead (2020)- Ghoul to be Kind”

TV Review- Sweet Home (2020)- A Monster Disappointment

With the releases of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Kingdom, Marianne, The Haunting of Hill House, Ares and The Haunting of Bly Manor, it’s safe to say that Netflix is enjoying a horror television renaissance. Sweet Home, released just last year and based on the popular manhwa written by Kim Carnby and illustrated by HwangContinue reading “TV Review- Sweet Home (2020)- A Monster Disappointment”

Movie Review- Ghost Stories (2017)- A Phantasmagorical Mind Game

“The brain sees what it wants to see.” And with those defining words, begins Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson’s Ghost Stories (2017), adapted from their equally mind-bending 2010 stage play. Unlike most other ghost-related horror movies, which favour cheap jump scares over plot, this film interrogates the psychological mindset behind paranormal sightings and our ultimateContinue reading “Movie Review- Ghost Stories (2017)- A Phantasmagorical Mind Game”

Movie Review- Frailty (2001)- An Underrated Masterpiece

Doubtless, many of you know the late great actor Bill Paxton, whose career spanned decades, including such hits as The Terminator (1984), Aliens (1986), Near Dark (1987) Twister (1996). However, few are aware of his sole directorial debut, Frailty, released on November 7th 2001 which is a shame, because it deserves to be just asContinue reading “Movie Review- Frailty (2001)- An Underrated Masterpiece”

Mothers and Monsters: Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994) and The Babadook (2014)

With my options limited during quarantine, I’ve been indulging in some retail therapy, which for me is purchasing horror films online. One of my recent (and most proudest) purchases was a seven-disc collector’s edition of A Nightmare on Elm Street, from the original 1984 classic to Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994). However, it was whenContinue reading “Mothers and Monsters: Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994) and The Babadook (2014)”
