Review: Pet Sematary (2019)

Pet Sematary follows the Creed family, Doctor Louis Creed, his wife Rachel and his two small children Ellie and Gage as they move to a quiet Maine town to escape the hustle and bustle of central Boston. While there they encounter the Pet Sematary, a pet burial ground […]

Review: Us (2019)

US is the new horror/thriller film from Director Jordan Peele, director of the smash hit 2017 movie Get Out. The film sees a family have to fend off evil doppelgangers of themselves and their friends in order to survive. Starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph and […]

Review: Captain Marvel (2019)

Captain Marvel is the most recent film in the MCU, and tells the story of Kree supersoldier Vers as she travels to Earth in an attempt to end an enduring galactic conflict between the Kree and the Skrulls, two embittered alien races hellbent on mutual extermination. While on […]

Review: After Life

Ricky Gervais’ new Netflix series After Life came out last week. Written, directed by and starring Gervais, the 6 episode mini series sees middle-aged Tony trying to cope with the loss of his wife to cancer. This series is deeply conflicting to me, and I can’t fully decide […]

Review- Painkillers (2019)

Painkillers, directed by Roxy Shih, tells the story of surgeon and doctor John Clarke who becomes stricken with intense pain after being in a car crash which killed his young son. The only solution to the pain is to drink fresh human blood. I thoroughly enjoyed this film. […]

Review: Glass (2019)

Well, Glass shattered my expectations. After 2016’s sleeper hit Split turned out to be a stealth sequel to 2000’s Unbreakable, all eyes were on M.Night Shyamalan to see if he could knock the third instalment in his “Eastrail 177” trilogy out of the park. Personally I think he […]

Review: Bumblebee (2018)

Bumblebee is the 6th film in the extremely hit or miss Transformers series. I say hit or miss but so far the only true hit is Bumblebee. I absolutely loved this film, and this may be the first step towards a brighter future for the Transformers series. Starring […]

Review: Overlord (2018)

Overlord is an action horror war film set on the eve of D-day. When an advance squad are sent ahead to disable a vital radio relay tower to enable the surprise landing they stumble across a secret Wolfenstein-esque Nazi science program set on reanimating the dead into something […]

Review: Venom (2018)

Knock knock let the devil in. These are lyrics from the accompanying Eminem song for Venom. Unfortunately it seems Marvel took this literally when they signed over the Venom rights to Sony. Anybody who knows anything about Venom knows that he is first and foremost a Spider-Man villain […]

Review: The Predator (2018)

As any self respecting film nerd I hold the original Predator in the highest esteem. It was a revolutionary film, and to this day is one of the best sci-fi/action films. Predator 2 is fine. Not good or bad. Just fine. Predators is my personal favourite of the […]

Review: Searching (2018)

Searching struck me as one of those films that relies on a gimmick for its success, and as a film that seemed to be your fairly average cut and paste “daughter goes missing dad crosses lines to find her” type film. Like Taken but with less vaguely European […]

Review: Blood Child (2018)

Blood Child, the directorial debut of Jennifer Phillips, was released in the US on the 11th of September. Overall I quite liked this film. The premise sees prospective mother Ashley suffer a miscarriage while in Singapore, whereupon she makes a pseudo Faustian bargain to raise a ghost child […]

Review: Alpha (2018)

It seems likes Alpha has been advertised in the cinema for a year at least, and I wasn’t sure it was ever actually going to come out. I had planned to watch The Happytime Murders instead but after reading of its dire quality I decided to see what […]

Review: Netfl!x and Kill

Netflix and Kill is a new comedy web-series by Kate Shenton, director of several horror-comedy shorts such as Egomaniac and Send in the Clowns. The series consists of 2-3 minute vignettes that delve into the life of a psychopathic serial killer and his captive victim who have become […]

Review: The Meg (2018)

Anybody that knows me knows that dumb, schlock-filled shark films are a passion of mine. I’ve seen them all, Megashark vs Giant Octopus, Sharknado 1-5, Ghost Shark, Zombie Shark, Sand Sharks, Snow Sharks, if there is a low budget shark film with a mildly intriguing prefix I am […]
