TV Review: The X-Files 206: Home Again

Posted on February 11, 2016 by Ben
x-file 206

By Nia Edwards-Behi The special mini-series of The X-Files continues to be something of a heavy-handed affair, which, for a slightly unconditional fan like myself, doesn’t pose too many problems. However, I suspect for anyone not as deeply invested in the characters the forceful way in which certain plot threads are being developed or revisited […]

Fight Like A Girl packshot

By Ben Bussey We’ve been following the often painfully slow progress of Australian wrestlers versus zombies movie From Parts Unknown: Fight Like A Girl for some time now. Technically the first feature film from Daniel Armstrong, writer-director of roller derby slasher Murderdrome and the upcoming sci-fi gorefest Sheborg Massacre, the film ran into those tricky […]

Whoops, Little Bit of Politics – The Purge 3: Election Year Trailer

Posted on February 10, 2016 by Ben
the-purge-3-trailer

By Ben Bussey So, that most politically-edged of mainstream not-quite horror franchises has just got that wee bit more timely. Here, in our parallel universe near future, we have a female presidential hopeful telling everyone they’re sexist if they don’t vote for her that she plans to do away with the annual Purge, and naturally this […]

From ‘Too Crude’ to ‘Twice as Vulgar’! An Interview with Deathgasm Director Jason Lei Howden

Posted on February 10, 2016 by Keri
deathgasmposter

Interview by Keri O’Shea If you haven’t seen Deathgasm yet then, if I may, it’s time you climbed out from under that nice, safe rock of yours and ascended to the top of a towering crag (preferably where there are some obliging women in chainmail to cling to your legs, Manowar-style). It was one of […]

Night of the Slasher

By Ben Bussey If you were at Celluloid Screams, Frightfest, Screamfest or any of the other 107 film festivals to have screened Night of the Slasher in recent months, you might be interested to hear that director Shant Hamassian’s short film has also been selected to screen at Austin’s SXSW 2016, and the team behind […]

Blu-ray Review – Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010)

Posted on February 9, 2016 by Keri
birdemic

By Keri O’Shea There’s a strange feeling of foreboding when you browse a film you’re due to review and find it’s one of those rarest of beasts – one of IMDb’s ‘Worst Rated’. Considering the sheer amount of films which are listed on that site, this means any film getting a mention for how appalling […]

Clovie’s Back (Maybe?) in New 10 Cloverfield Lane Teaser

Posted on February 8, 2016 by Ben
10-cloverfield-lane-691x1024

By Ben Bussey In-keeping with the spirit of its predecessor, 10 Cloverfield Lane is shaping up to be one of the most fascinating mainstream movies of 2016. Firstly, no one even knew it was coming until three weeks ago; secondly, much like the marketing for the original 2008 Cloverfield, they would seem to be playing […]

Review: The Pack (2015)

Posted on February 5, 2016 by Ben
ThePack

By Ben Bussey Boy, Ozploitation’s really gone to the dogs, hasn’t it? Heheh… you see, that’s a pun, because this is a film about killer dogs. And. Erm. Yeah. That’s about it. Please excuse my painfully lazy and feeble attempts at humour – but in my defence, this movie left me in so near-catatonic a […]

Review: The Survivalist (2015)

SURVIVALIST_HS_0624__DSC_6376.jpg

By Tristan Bishop To quote British rapper Akira The Don – ‘Don’t come talking to me about no post-apocalypse. Look up apocalypse in the dictionary. It’s like a Sunday. There ain’t no post.’ He’s right, of course, but that doesn’t stop the post-apocalypse from being perennially popular in horror and sci-fi, and right now, thanks […]

By Ben Bussey Okay, we’ve had first person perspective slasher movie You Are Not Alone, and now we’ve got another movie putting us directly into the head of the protagonist – this time in the face of a zombie apocalypse (or not, if you’re one of those pedants who goes nuts anytime someone calls 28 […]

Yellow Road

By Nia Edwards-Behi We make no secret of our love of Japanese splatter cinema here at BaH, and one of the kings of the genre is undoubtedly Yoshihiro Nishimura. Last year he directed The Ninja War of Torakage, and has been busy working in his capacity as ace special effects maestro on Attack on Titan […]

DVD Review: Clinger (2014)

Posted on February 3, 2016 by Ben
Clinger_5

By Ben Bussey I owe Clinger a minor apology. I’d assumed, based on the synopsis and first trailer, that this was a zom-rom-com, when in truth it’s more of a ghost story. Even so, the ghosts involved here are able to take physical form, make physical contact, and even get physically intimate… indeed, a lot […]

Director’s Cut Clip Makes Us Say “Wow, So That’s What Teller’s Voice Sounds Like”

Director's Cut - Teller

By Ben Bussey When we got the trailer for Director’s Cut, Penn Jillette’s first effort as actor and writer in a horror movie (with directing duties going to Adam Rifkin), I suggested that Teller had perhaps been buried under the patio. Turns out I was dead wrong, as this new clip from the meta-horror comedy […]

By Nia Edwards-Behi If you missed Nia’s review of the first two episodes of the new X-Files, click here. If there’s one thing that always made The X-Files stand out, it was its sense of humour. Not just the vein of dry and sardonic humour that ran throughout the series, which worked thanks to both […]

Five Dolls for an August Moon - Arrow Video

By Nia Edwards-Behi Arrow Video treat us so well. Hot the heels of many other Bava releases, they now bring us their latest release: Five Dolls for an August Moon. This is giallo in Agatha Christie mode, less black-gloves and forgotten details, more rich people sitting around and getting murdered. Does the title have anything […]

You Are Not Alone - Sharp Teeth Films DVD

By Ben Bussey I’ve been mad at this film ever since I first saw the trailer for it last month. Initially, this was because every time I read the title I got that damn Michael Jackson song stuck in my head. But now that I’ve seen it, I’m mad because it’s yet another example of […]

Review: The Orange Man (2015)

Posted on January 31, 2016 by Ben
The Orange Man

By Karolina Gruschka The Orange Man is a wacky, trashy slasher comedy written, directed and produced by independent filmmaker Stephen Folker. Far from what the film title and Blu-ray cover might suggest, the orange man is not a murderous Jack’o Lantern or Killer Tomato kind of creature; what we are dealing with instead is a […]
