FrightFest reviews: Day Two

The Chamber Day Two of FrightFest kicked off, for me at least, with The Chamber, an entry in the “trapped” subgenre that also includes Open Water, Adrift, Frozen, and Landmine Goes Click. In all of these films, a small group of people begin to turn on each other as their nerves become frayed by the […]

FrightFest reviews: Day One

For the third year running, your correspondent has braved FrightFest, a festival of horror films taking place over five days in Central London. This year it was particularly brave of me as, instead of the familiar Leicester Square of previous fests, it was held in the Shepherd’s Bush Vue, which meant my journey required changing […]

An Early Look at FrightFest

We take a look at what to expect at this year’s FrightFest… In just over a month, FrightFest will begin.

i-Lived (app review)

In i-Lived, a young man makes a Faustian pact with a mobile app so tempting and sinister that it seems to quite literally be The Devil, and while at first he lives the high life, he soon finds that deals with The Devil have a tendency to bite the end-user in the ass, as his […]

i-Lived – New Release Review

Josh, played by physical comedian and stand-up Jeremiah Watkins, is a professional reviewer of apps. Actually, I’m sorry, that’s a half-truth: he talks about apps on his YouTube channel, which has 285 subscribers, and he refuses to do any other job, despite his father urging him to stop scrounging, as he really feels that any […]

Baskin – New Release Review

We take a look at this outlandish nightmare of a film! Eye-gougings. Keyholes in foreheads. Buckets of frogs and portals to Hell. Welcome to the mad, blood-soaked world of Baskin, the debut feature from Can Evrenol, one of only eight Turkish films ever to receive distribution in North America. If you want the truth, there’s no […]

Satan’s Blade – Blu-Ray Review

One of the more forgotten of the rash of slasher to appear in the wake of Halloween, Satan’s Blade subverts the usual fun-in-the-sun settings of this type of picture by isolating its cast of vacationing teens on a snow-covered peak, then has them stalked by the vengeful spirit of a deranged mountain man. The Film […]

Betrothed – New Release Review

We take a look at Jim Lane’s new horror… Out in the desert there exists a family of very sick, very religious rednecks. That’s easy to swallow, or else you haven’t seen much horror. The USP here is that the mother likes to send her two sons out to kidnap women to provide suitable brides […]

Pride & Prejudice & Zombies – New Release Review

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a literary classic must be in want of flesh-eating monsters… The cynical amongst us will look at the title Pride & Prejudice & Zombies and ask the simple question; ‘why does this exist?’. It’s a good question and the two most readily available answers are; in order to […]

Tear Me Apart – New Release Review

We take a look at this cannibal rom-com which opens today… Tear Me Apart is directed by Alex Lightman, his first feature film, and stars Alfie Stewart, Frazer Alexander, and Jennie Eggleton. It follows two brothers, in a postapocalyptic wasteland, who are forced to live off eating other people to survive. In this world they live […]
