Blu-Ray Review: Honeymoon (2013)

HONEYMOON_BD_2D_2

Review by Ben Bussey Damn it all, it’s another of those films that’s very, very easy to talk about if you don’t mind giving everything away, but considerably trickier if you’d like to leave things unspoiled. Taking what would seem to be a fairly standard trope from horror/sci-fi fantasy, yet playing it out in an […]

Comic Review: Adventure Time: Marceline’s Gone Adrift #1

Posted on 01/21/15 by Ben
marcy

By Svetlana Fedotov Adventure Time has become a force of nature. What started out as a fun attempt to bring some creativity to the stale and predictable world of children’s cartoons has turned into a multi-million dollar franchise that has changed the face of entertainment altogether. Spawning a fandom that would make Invader Zim blush, […]

Blu-Ray Review: Bad Timing (1980)

bad-timing

Review by Matt Harries I’ve long had a soft spot for English director Nicolas Roeg. Performance, The Man Who Fell To Earth, Walkabout, and arguably his finest film Don’t Look Now are all distinctive examples of his style; all films full of visual flair honed from his earlier career as a cameraman and cinematographer. Roeg’s […]

DVD Review: Dead Snow 2 – Red vs. Dead

By Keri O’Shea Ah, Nazis. There’s a definite fascination with the Nazis in modern/trash culture, and in horror movies they turn up with perplexing regularity; maybe it’s because they were our foes, maybe we feel most comfortable playing out fantasy scenarios which involve them because we feel safe to mock those whom we beat – […]

Review: Exorcism (2014)

Review by Quin Exorcism ends with a confession that is both well written and well performed. I’m not offering up some great spoiler. Like most found footage films, you know ahead of time what is in store for the characters. In fact, if you’ve seen any two, you can probably pick out the similarities and […]

Comic review: Feathers #1

Posted on 01/09/15 by Ben
feathers

By Svetlana Fedotov Doing a true all-ages work is hard to pull off. Balancing the child-like wonderment of children stories while creating a tale that appeals to older readers without diving off into kiddie fart jokes takes a serious steady hand that few possess. While animated endeavors such as Adventure Time, Regular Show, and Gravity […]

Review: Beneath (2014)

Beneath-Poster-1

Review by Quin In my review of Abandoned Mine at the end of 2013, I declared mine horror officially dead. I’ve seen two more mine related horror films since then, the first (and better of the two) being an older film finally seeing daylight after having been buried deep underground for a while. That one […]

Blu-Ray Review: The Other (1972)

The Other

Review by Ben Bussey I’m quite certain I’m not the only person in recent years to have sat down to watch The Other and within the first ten minutes found myself thinking “gee, wonder if M Night Shyamalan ever saw this one.” As groundbreaking as The Sixth Sense’s grounded, dramatic take on supernatural horror might […]

Blu-Ray Review: Deliver Us From Evil (2014)

Deliver Us From Evil

Review by Nia Edwards-Behi Deliver Us From Evil seems like the latest installment in the mainstream, 15-cert haunting/possession trend of horror films. Director Scott Derrickson previously brought us The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister, and just as Emily Rose was as much a courtroom drama as it was a horror film, here Derrickson brings […]

15480935988_58ae0a7048_z

By Keri O’Shea When Blacula appeared back in 1972, it was an immediate, if a surprise, success: the way that it catered to audiences via its excellent cast without talking down to anybody (the odd comic turn notwithstanding) whilst adding something strong and new to an already tried-and-tested vampire horror genre saw certain cinemas taking […]

Movie & Music Network Review: Bikini Bloodbath Christmas (2009) – Watch For Free Here!

Bikini Bloodbath Christmas

Review by Ben Bussey What with the time of year, I figured that for our second monthly dip into the diverse catalogue of weird, wonderful and downright trashy cinema available at the Movie & Music Network (following on from Keri’s November review of Ilsa the Wicked Warden), I should select something relatively festive. There was […]
