Movie reviews

Skinner – Ivan Nagy (101 Films)

While we have some great companies in the UK releasing genre titles there’s a huge amount of output going on Stateside as well. Production houses such as Synapse, Blue Underground, Severin, Vinegar Syndrome, Code Red and Mondo Macabro really deliver… Continue Reading →

3 From Hell – Rob Zombie (Lionsgate)

Well the release of this is somewhat overshadowed by the passing of one of this trilogy of film’s most loveable stars Sid Haig. So much more than just a bad tempered, homicidal clown the veteran actor had appeared in nearly… Continue Reading →

Rabid – The Soska Sisters (101 Films)

If like me you consider the 70’s and 80’s to be the golden years of film especially within the horror genre, you too are no doubt jaded by modern movies and find little in them that is truly original and… Continue Reading →

Rabid – David Cronenberg (101 Films)

What a great time to be a film collector. Mind you if you are of a certain age it is remarkable to count up how many times you may have spent money on a film over the years. If you… Continue Reading →

Schramm – Jorg Buttgereit (Arrow)

It’s odd how things become more acceptable as time goes by, especially in the film world where perhaps what occurs in real life makes the censorship of art seem less necessary. Still who would have thought that Jorg Buttgereit’s quartet… Continue Reading →

Devil Hunter – Jess Franco (88 Films)

Welcome to the latest instalment of the so bad its good film appreciation society and we have a corker this time round in the form of Jess Franco’s 1980 video nasty Devil Hunter. This is one of the very quick… Continue Reading →

Lords Of Chaos – Jonas Åkerlund (Arrow Films)

It’s always interesting when a film is announced or still in pre-production and everyone is up in arms about it. I guess the most common time is when it is a remake and people who treasure the original hate the… Continue Reading →

The Green Inferno – Antonio Climati (88 Films)

There’s nothing more confusing than taking a trip to the celluloid jungle; right let’s try to explain this. The Green Inferno has nothing to do with the more recent homage by Eli Roth (2013), in fact he nabbed the name… Continue Reading →

Cannibal Terror – Alain Deruelle (88 Films)

So who has sat through all of the 72 video nasties? If you have you certainly will have shuddered at the memory of a few shockers in more ways than one. For every Evil Dead there is a Night Of… Continue Reading →

Crucible Of The Vampire – Ian Ross McNamee (Screenbound) Review and Competition

Scroll down for competition. British horror films definitely need support and encouragement although sometimes it can be a difficult task. I am more of an age to appreciate the old guard such as Peter Walker and Norman J Warren and… Continue Reading →

Opera – Dario Argento (Cult Films)

As far as many are concerned Opera made in 1987 is the last film truly deserving of director Dario Argento’s auteur status. It also saw the end of the golden era for Italian genre cinema which was rapidly in decline… Continue Reading →

Long Weekend – Colin Eggleston (Second Sight)

I have been on a bit of a down under film kick of late after discovering wonderful Australian film Wake In Fright (Ted Kotchett 1971) recently. Where has this tale of hard drinking in an outback town been all my… Continue Reading →
