Landmine Goes Click – New Release Review

Struggles to capitalise on it’s considerable promise… The concept behind Landmine Goes Click bursts with promise; a tourist (Sterling Knight) steps on a landmine whilst hiking in Geogia with his best mate and his mate’s girlfriend. With our protagonist pinned to one spot lest the mine explodes we are now set up for something rather thrilling, an inventive and […]

The Lesson – New Release Review

An exercise in pain and torture which is wholly lacking in purpose, depth or value… Maybe, just maybe The Lesson started out in life as a project with a purpose.

The Sand – New Release Review

Waking up after a night of debauchery which resembles a mercifully truncated Spring Breakers, our teen antiheroes find themselves beach-bound: something is in the sand, and when they touch it they die. OK, so it’s basically The Floor is Made of Lava: The Movie, but The Sand does more with its pleasantly offbeat premise than […]
