Review: Visions (2016)

Director: Kevin Gruetert Starring: Isla Fisher, Jim Parsons, Anson Mount Release Date: 20th June 2016 (UK) When you watch the trailer you will think Isla Fisher’s straight to DVD horror looks like nothing more than a cheap imitation of Rosemary’s Baby. No doubt Polanski’s masterpiece was an inspiration to the story, like any horror about pregnancy or demonic children…

Review: 28 Days Later (2002)

Director: Danny Boyle Starring: Cillian Murphy, Naomie Harris, Christopher Eccleston Release Date: 1st November 2002 (UK) One of the films that put Danny Boyle on the Hollywood radar was the breakout zombie horror 28 Days Later.

13 of the Best Films by Mario Bava

“Movies are a magician’s forge, they allow you to build a story with your hands–at least, that’s what it means to me. What attracts me in movies is to be presented with a problem and be able to solve it. Nothing else; just to create an illusion, an effect, with almost nothing.” –Mario Bava Mario…

20 of the Best Elisha Cook Jr. Films

He was the go-to guy when Hollywood needed a patsy, a fall guy, and he did it with class and dignity, no matter how small the part was.  Starting out in vaudeville at the early age of 14, he eventually made his way to the big screen, he starred opposite Lana Turner in Her Unborn…

Trailer: Yoga Hosers

And the award for most bizarre trailer of the year goes to Kevin Smith’s latest effort Yoga Hosers. Featuring Johnny Depp and Stan Lee (yes, THE Stan Lee), we can’t tell if this is a comedy, a crime caper, a horror or something kind of in the middle of all three. Watch and tell us what…

Check out the trailer and comment below. The Shallows, starring Blake Lively, is in UK cinemas from 12th August 2016. In the taut thriller The Shallows, when Nancy (Blake Lively)…

Trailer: Visions

It’s really odd watching Jim Parsons in anything but a comedic role, yet here he is as the doctor telling Isla Fisher that something’s not quite right. Understatement, considering this is some sort of gross between Insidious and Rosemary’s Baby. Check out the trailer and buy the DVD from 20th June 2016. Leaving her hectic city lifestyle…

Review: Friend Request (2016)

Director: Simon Verhoeven Starring: Alycia Debnam-Carey, William Moseley, Connor Paolo Release Date: 22nd June 2016 (UK) If you were unfortunate enough to be horrified by Unfriended and the trailer for Friend Request, it is forgivable to assume this would be diabolical avoid-at-all-costs horror drivel with a silly gimmick at its core. Though it is rather forgettable, fans of the genre…

Review: Cloverfield (2008)

The image of a headless Statue of Liberty is now eponymous with the J.J. Abrams produced Cloverfield – a horror clearly inspired by the found footage concept championed by The Blair Witch Project, but a film which has also inspired innovation in this ever stale genre. The poster suggests something more polished than you will get, but…

Review: The Witch (2015)

Director: Robert Eggers Starring: Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Harvey Scrimshaw Release Date: 11th March 2016 (UK) Billed by Sundance and other festivals as one of the most disturbing horrors of last year, The Witch came to cinemas with a weight of expectation.
