The Lost Boys Review

So last week I reviewed a film from the 80s considered by many to be a classic, and may have dropped hints in that review that it wasn’t my favourite period; and so to carry on that point, one of my correspondents (thank you, Ian) sent me this film to review. I knew of this…

Zombieland Review

There are few things in popular culture more over-done than Zombies. They’ve been everywhere for what seems like an eternity, be it video games, films, books; nowhere is same from the shambling horrors, and like many people, I am truly sick of the sight of them. There can’t be that many things left to do…

Halloween (1978) Review

Throughout October, I’ve been looking at a genre that I haven’t given much thought to in the past, that being the Horror genre; there’s no better time of the year to look at some spooky films than this month after all, and we now arrive at the film whose name derives from the holiday that…

The Shining Review

When I put out a vote on my social media to pick my next review, I deliberately picked horror films, with it being October now, and I must admit, this film was a last-minute addition. I wanted four horror films, and more to the point, four horror films in my collection, with an already established…

The New Mutants Review

For a while, it seemed like this film was never going to come out. After being filmed back in 2017, it has subsequently had FIVE different release dates, facing several different setbacks along the way, including, but not limited to, a studio takeover, and a global pandemic. Considering that this was filmed at the same…

Four Corners

Consciousness was returning, they opened their eyes to blinding lights and thumping heads. Questions were all swimming in their minds, barely formed but still there, as their vision adjusted to the brightly lit room, and the dull thump in their heads subdued.   There were four in total. All were gagged, so they couldn’t cry…

Train To Busan Review

Well, I couldn’t have picked a more appropriate film for the current times, could I? There I was, watching a virus spread through the population, causing panic and hysteria, then I turned off the news, and put on Train To Busan instead. Entirely obvious jokes aside, I had picked up Train To Busan as a recommendation from my…

Little Shop of Horrors Review

There might not be a more highly-regarded composer and songwriter in modern Hollywood than Alan Menken. For many people my age, his songs in Disney films were the soundtrack to our childhoods, and the late-80’s revival of Disney’s fortunes owes a lot of its success to Menken’s songwriting. Of course, he didn’t do this alone,…

Alien Review

When it comes to great directors, very few have a perfect record. Stanley Kubrick may have been a masterful filmmaker, but he also made Eyes Wide Shut, Steven Spielberg has War of the Worlds, and Quentin Tarantino has Death Proof. No-one is perfect, much less film directors. Ridley Scott is a great example of this.…

The Invisible Man Review

Anyone remember the Dark Universe? That ambitious shared cinematic universe idea based off the old Universal monster properties? The franchise that was knee capped after one terrible film? You don’t? Can’t say I blame you. Well, this is the attempt to subtly bring that idea back, a co-production between Universal and prolific horror producers Blumhouse,…
