DVD Review: Shark Killer (2015)

Posted on 06/30/15 by Ben
Shark Killer

By Ben Bussey It’s no surprise when a low-budget straight to DVD shark movie turns out to be complete and utter garbage, but there’s a particularly bitter sting in the case of Shark Killer. Contrary to the utterly generic ominous fin cover art chosen by distributor Image Entertainment, this was a movie that, on a […]

Blu-ray Review: Hawk the Slayer (1980)

Hawk the Slayer - Network Blu-ray

By Ben Bussey British contributions to the sword and sorcery genre are surprisingly few and far between. The Americans and Italians churned them out like butter, but the UK was a rather less active participant. It’s not too hard to see why; the genre came to prominence after John Milius struck gold (or perhaps ‘forged […]

Blu-Ray Review: The Avengers, Series 5 (1966-1967)

The Avengers Series 5

By Ben Bussey Opening disclaimer: at the time of writing I’ve yet to get through the entire seven disc Blu-ray set that Studiocanal have lovingly put together for Series 5 of TV classic The Avengers (in the wake of series 4 enjoying similar treatment earlier this year). However, I just had to bring this review […]

DVD Review: Out of the Dark (2014)

OUTOFDARK_DVD_2D

By Ben Bussey It’s curious how I find myself teeming with respect and admiration for Guillermo del Toro, yet seem to have very little of those sentiments for the bulk of the Hispanic horror filmmakers crossing over to English language work in his wake. Promoted heavily on its links to del Toro’s output (specifically producer Belén Atienza, […]

Comic Review: Empty Zone #1

Posted on 06/17/15 by Ben
emptyzone

By Svetlana Fedotov Empty Zone is written a little like everything you ever read while reading like something you’ve never really read before. It’s a mish mash of a million subjects that have been played to death, but what they did with that pile of ideas worked out pretty decently. A sci-fi, dystopian, horror, riot-grrl-robotics-expert […]

Film Review: Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)

Human Centipede 3

By Tristan Bishop The Human Centipede films (of which this third segment is surely the final installment) have surely had one of the strangest progressions in the history of film. From 2009’s Human Centipede: First Sequence, which, despite the buzz generated by the uniquely disgusting premise (I’m sure there isn’t a soul reading this that […]

DVD Review: Charlie’s Farm (2014)

Charlies Farm DVD 2D - FINAL

Review by Ben Bussey I just don’t get it. Here’s a new Australian horror movie, relatively low-budget but with reasonable means at its disposal: IMDb lists its reported budget as $3 million (presumably AUS), which was enough to hire the services of three well-known, long-established Hollywood actors, and produce an end product that looks and […]

DVD Review: Wild Tales (2014)

Wild Tales DVD

By Tristan Bishop The anthology film has had something of a revival in horror circles in recent years, with hits such as The ABCs of Death and V/H/S (both 2012) inspiring sequels and imitations. Wild Tales is a slightly different beast to these multi-authored collections of short films, however; it’s all been directed by one […]

Maggie

Review by Dustin Hall Another day gone by, and once again, the God-made-mortal-flesh, Arnold Schwarzenegger, the greatest onscreen presence EVER has once again graced us with another film. The verdict: you probably won’t like it. That said, Maggie isn’t a bad film. It just really isn’t the horror film it was branded as. Instead viewers […]

Review: The Hospital 2 (2015)

The Hospital 2

By Ben Bussey 2013 microbudget horror The Hospital somehow went totally under the radar for us at BAH, aside from the minor controversy it attracted some time after its UK DVD release when a Tesco store in Gloucester withdrew all copies of the film following a customer complaint (yes, just one) that it was too […]

DVD Review: Killer Mermaids (AKA Nymph) (2014)

KILLER_MERMAIDS_2D_DVD

Review by Ben Bussey Ugh. You hear there’s a Serbian creature feature about deadly sirens luring pretty young party people to their deaths on a sunkissed island, and the first impulse is to expect something fun. No, it doesn’t sound like an Oscar-winner, but it does sound like the makings of a good night in […]
