Cooties

By Ben Bussey Seems like a very long time ago we first heard about Cooties, a horror comedy from unlikely collaborators Leigh Whannell (Saw, Insidious) and Ian Brennan (Glee), with Elijah Wood and Rainn Wilson. Indeed, the film premiered at Sundance 2014, well over a year ago – and oftentimes when there’s that big a […]

By Ben Bussey It delighted festival audiences in 2014; it baffled those very same people with the announcement of an imminent US remake; and now it’s finally set for a Region 2 DVD release.

unnamed (5)

By Svetlana Fedotov Though perhaps not one of the biggest horror franchises in the movie industry, Puppet Master has managed to carve itself out a nice little niche in the cult film scene. In fact, the little murdering puppets (or muppets as I like to call them) have proven so oddly popular that they have […]

01

By Ben Bussey Did not see this one coming. Sometimes, when a director moves from a small indie debut to a big studio sophomore movie, you can see the reasoning clearly enough: Gareth Edwards going from Monsters to Godzilla comes to mind. But at no point whilst watching Honeymoon did I imagine the same director […]
