Of course, there’s a wildly vast array of characters with weird faces whom the populace may or may not see and uh, vampires? Yeah vampires. So of course, you’re asking, ‘Svetlana, why are […]

Pardon me a ‘get off my lawn’ moment, if you will: supernatural horror-making in recent years has gone down the drain. Oh sure, on occasion you’ll see a film which has its moments, but the fact that this often strikes us with such genuine surprise and delight should testify that for the most part, supernatural […]

DVD Review: Eat (2014)

Eat - Monster Pictures DVD

By Tristan Bishop The film industry, like most creative industries, is notoriously tough to break into. For every A-list movie star at the top of their game, a pyramid made up of thousands of less fortunate souls lies beneath them – a few of them might be well-known character actors, and a few more those […]

DVD Template 30.10.03

By Ben Bussey It can’t be a good sign when, halfway through watching a newly released French horror movie, you find yourself pondering what happened to the days when so much of the most exciting horror around was coming out of France.

quatermassdvd

By Keri O’Shea When creator Nigel Kneale brought Professor Bernard Quatermass to the screen in the late 70s, it was not the first time that this intriguing and rather under-appreciated figure had appeared; since the 1950s, when he was first introduced, he had become a quiet but interesting institution, a man whose scientific acumen was […]

Review: Damned on Earth (2014)

Posted on July 26, 2015 by Ben
Damned on Earth

By Nia Edwards-Behi Damned on Earth begins with a scene in which a woman runs through a wooded area as a lumbering, anonymous man chases after. She falls over a bit. Then she dies. The only narrative twist to this is that this isn’t a precursor to a bog-standard would-be slasher classic, but instead it […]

Abertoir - Frizzi 2 Fulci

By Ben Bussey If there’s one thing even more memorable about Lucio Fulci movies than the gore, it’s those gloriously eerie electronic soundtracks from the musical master Fabio Frizzi. If you’re a fan, there’s quite the treat in store on the opening night of this year’s Abertoir – and it’s a suitably epic opener for […]

DVD Review: Invoked (2015)

Posted on July 23, 2015 by Ben
Invoked

By Ben Bussey Back in March 2014 I saw a movie called The Invoking. It was a no-budget production from a young cast and crew, following a bunch of friends heading out to a remote, hitherto unknown location, where, following a liberal side order of personal drama, something vaguely spooky occurs. It bored the living […]
