With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I think it’s only visit to revisit the fourth installment in the Child’s Play franchise and arguably the most romantic one- Bride of Chucky (dir.

Directly following the ending of Child’s Play 3, the scattered remains of Chucky (voiced by Brad Dourif), is retrieved and resurrectedContinue reading “Movie Review- Bride of Chucky (1998)”

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)”

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.

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”

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.

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.

Movie Review- Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006)- A Cut Above the Rest

Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger and Leatherface- they are the modern day boogeyman, whose names have been cemented in popular culture as sentinels of fear. But some legends’ beginnings are more humble than others. This film, though seldom known outside select circles, is the smartest skewering of the horror film genre since Wes Craven’sContinue reading “Movie Review- Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006)- A Cut Above the Rest”
