By Ben Bussey I should probably open this with an NSFW disclaimer. Of course, if you’ve already clicked into this page, then you’ve seen the photo above. Sorry. Hope you didn’t just lose your job. But it serves you right for reading about a lesbian vampire movie in the workplace. Anyway… I’d almost completely forgotten […]

By Keri O’Shea & Nia Edwards-Behi Keri: It’s no great surprise that Herschell Gordon Lewis, pioneer of so many infamous gore and exploitation movies, sustained another life as an advertising guru both before and after the 1960s heyday of his filmmaking career. In a number of ways, his films probably had a similar impact to […]

By Keri O’Shea You know, it’s funny. I’ve spent around fifteen years writing about horror cinema – for a variety of audience sizes from one upwards – but in all that time I’ve never been for a wild weekend in a remote cabin, and nor do I know anyone who has. Perhaps it’s just not […]

Review: 31 (2016)

31-doom-head

By Ben Bussey If you’ll pardon me starting off on a topical note; it’s hard not to see some parallels between the enduring filmmaking career of Rob Zombie, and the political progress of Donald Trump. Hear me out on this one. From the very beginning, few people expected either man to succeed in their new […]

By Ben Bussey While sex work in any capacity tends to be euphemistically dubbed ‘the oldest profession,’ no facet of that field is more uniquely modern than that of the cam girl, a performer entertaining untold numbers of strangers online with intimate displays into webcams. Naturally this is a subject matter that’s begging to be […]

Scream, and scream again…? New trailer for Fear Inc.

Posted on September 21, 2016 by Ben
fear-inc

By Ben Bussey Even in the wake of The Cabin in the Woods, you still can’t really do self-referential horror comedy without evoking the 1996 game-changer/opinion-polariser Scream. On the evidence of this new trailer, the upcoming Fear Inc openly invites this comparison, right down to directly referencing the film itself, and – as is pretty […]

By Ben Bussey It seems like we’ve been calling practical special effects and special make-up effects a dying art for more than twenty years, yet here we are in 2016 and the art form still has vast swathes of admirers advocating its return to prominence in a cinematic landscape which seems overrun with CGI. This […]

Blair Witch

By Dustin Hall Blair Witch, the surprise sequel to the original smash The Blair Witch Project is upon us. Creeping out of the woods seemingly from nowhere, this movie brings its audience full circle, trapping us in a sort of time loop… Jesus, do I hear Limp Bizkit playing off in the distance? Let me […]

By Quin If you have ever handled a VHS tape, you may remember the advisory written on the edge telling you not to touch the tape inside. Some tapes also had instructions as to which end to insert into the VCR – which always seemed intuitive enough to me. But that advisory always made me […]

By Ben Bussey We’re only a little over a week away from Rob Zombie’s 31 hitting British cinemas, and I think at this point we’ve all got a good idea of what to expect… because, y’know, it’s a Rob Zombie movie. I haven’t seen it yet, but all the early word seems to indicate that […]

FrightFest Guide To Exploitation Movies-coverWEB

By Ben Bussey The 17th annual FrightFest may have not long since come to an end after its five day reign of terror in London – but, like any monster worth its salt, it keeps on coming back bigger, stronger and nastier. So it is that the FrightFest brand continues to expand. Having already moved […]

Posted on September 10, 2016 by Keri

By Keri O’Shea If ever you felt cordially invited to loathe a set of characters within the first few minutes of a film, then Don’t Breathe seems to offer it; we’re shown, from the outset, a group of three young housebreakers who use their ill-begotten insider info to get in to well-to-do homes, take as […]
