Computer Man

By Nia Edwards-Behi We all know I love Danger 5, the alt-history surrealist TV series by Dario Russo and David Ashby. Though there’s no sign of any more Danger 5 in the near future (I know, I’m sad too, but pastures new, and all that), the men collectively known as Dinosaur Worldwide have unleashed their […]

The Birch

By Ben Bussey There are undoubtedly far worse ways to start your weekend than with this rather tasty short film from UK directorial duo Ben Franklin and Anthony Melton of Bloody Cuts. At barely four minutes, The Birch is very short, but it’s oh-so sweet, centring on a put-upon teen who, it turns out, has […]

Warren House - the real Annabelle

By Dustin Hall I’ve held onto this story for quite some time, waiting for just the right moment to share it.

Vintage Blood

By Nia Edwards-Behi Since its premiere at last year’s Film4 FrightFest, Abigail Blackmore’s short Vintage Blood has played countless festivals and received rave reviews.

By Nia Edwards-Behi I’ve already had the pleasure of writing at length about one of my all-time favourite films for this website’s anniversary retrospective series, when in 2012 I wrote about The Last House on the Left’s 40th anniversary. Time goes on and now I’m very excited to have the pleasure of commemorating 45 years […]

The Herd Melanie Light

By Nia Edwards-Behi I have no qualms in saying that Melanie Light is, to me, one of the most exciting people working in the British horror scene. Vastly experienced as a production designer and art director, Light has demonstrated with her short film work both dedication to the genre and growth in her own craft. […]

Ilsa vs. Elsa: Two Nazisploitation Movies and Their Leading Ladies

Posted on 04/07/16 by Keri

By Keri O’Shea Why did Nazisploitation movies enjoy such a brief, if lurid moment in the sun during the European cinema of the 1970s? Perhaps the old adage ‘history is written by the winners’ applies as much to the arts as it does to other aspects of society; certainly, there has never been any great […]

Straw-Man-A-Reckoning-Leslie-Simpson

By Ben Bussey BAH readers with long memories may recall a few years back we raved about a 2009 microbudget British indie initially entitled Straw Man, later retitled A Reckoning, starring Leslie Simpson and Axelle Carolyn. An unconventional post-apocalyptic drama, Nia praised it back in 2011 as “a unique film that should be seen by many,” […]

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 […]

Happy 70th Birthday, David Lynch!

David Lynch

By Keri O’Shea As brilliant a range of directors as we have currently working in film and TV, very few of them have given their own adjective to the English language – but our beloved David Lynch, who celebrates his 70th birthday today, has done just that. ‘Lynchian’ is a term I’ve certainly used, usually […]

evil dead laserdisc

By Guest Contributor Marc Lissenburg The above exasperating question was often put to horror fans around 20 years ago, when proudly displaying the latest additions to their film collections. The query arose due to less informed peers confusing analogue vinyl music (‘records’ as they were commonly known) with a groundbreaking digital development in domestic movie […]

By Nia Edwards-Behi It’s that time of year again, when I put my memory to the test and realise, once I’ve finished, that I’ve left dozens of titles out of the running for my round-up of favourites of the year. It’s always going to be a subjective list, and almost certainly arbitrary – I admit […]
