Crawl Review

Secret screenings are a bit of a crap shoot to be honest. I struck lucky earlier this month when I attended one that ended up being Blinded By the Light, which I really enjoyed, so I took the plunge and booked another one. It started with disappointment, unfortunately, as I really wanted the screening to…

Child’s Play Review

I must say it was smart of this films marketing department to make the most of it’s shared release window with Toy Story 4. In case you haven’t seen the darkly hilarious teaser posters for Child’s Play, they include multiple toys from the Toy Story universe after being brutally killed by Chucky, this series’ murderous…

Brightburn Review

I remember when this film’s trailer first dropped at the end of last year. The use of James Gunn’s name wasn’t particularly timely at the time, but it seemed like a novel idea at first glance, sure it was such a transparent Superman paralell that it could have been used as window, but the concept…

Pet Sematary Review

A few years ago, I gave a glowing review to the engaging adaptation of Stephen King’s IT (which is now retroactively referred to as IT: Chapter One) which once again ignited interest in Mr King’s works. There really seems to be no middle ground with Stephen King adaptations, they’re either very, very good (Green Mile,…

Us Review

I must admit I missed Get Out when it was in cinemas, horror really isn’t a genre I follow too closely so it completely passed me by. By the time I got around to watching it, I had already been surprised by a few horror films and was astonished by its depth and social commentary,…

The Worst Films of the Year

It’s all very well and good being positive and all that, but we all know that the world is not a positive place, it’s a dull, unforgiving place, and Hollywood is no different, in fact it’s probably worse, if Hollywood were a person, it would have the worst mood swings in human history. On one…

My Top 10 Films of 2018

So, here we are again… Another year has passed, which means it’s time for critics the world over to compile their Top 10 Films of the year list in an effort to feel more important and, more importantly, to boost site traffic. As the old saying goes, if you can’t beat them, join them. It’s…

Hereditary Review

Well, you certainly couldn’t avoid the hype for this movie recently. Marketed with the tag: “This generation’s The Exorcist” which always makes me wary. Surely if the movie can stand up on its own merits it wouldn’t need to be compared to a movie that’s over 40 years old? Come to think of it, a…

A Quiet Place Review

Last year, in my It review, I mentioned that I wasn’t quite into horror. That isn’t quite true. I can get into horror, so long as the set-up and execution (pun not intended) isn’t incredibly lazy. Unfortunately most horror movies are like this, and you know what I mean, music swells up to a crescendo,…

It Review

I’m not all that big on horror movies to be perfectly honest, movies don’t scare me, they never really have, sure they can startle and make me jump a few times, but most movies don’t have the right elements of horror to actually scare me, I am however, a big fan of the works of…
