Temple – DVD Review

There’s a lot of BS floating around just now regarding the writing credit on William Barrett’s directorial debut Temple. If you’re to believe the posters, Temple is the latest potentially lucrative film from the mind of Simon Barrett, writer behind The Guest, You’re Next, and last year’s surprise Blair Witch sequel.  In actual fact, Barrett has distanced himself from the project, penning an open letter which reveals he wrote a script […]

Train to Busan – DVD Review

Last year Yeon Sang-Ho’s animated horror Seoul Station plotted the course of a viral outbreak in South Korea with solid, but not groundbreaking, results. The hype for Sang-Ho’s debut live-action film has been unparalleled and the reviews overwhelmingly enthusiastic. Thankfully its deserved.

Invoked – DVD Review

Humberto Rosa and Thairon Mendes’ found footage horror Invoked is a surprisingly effective . Rosa’s script, co-written by Aaron Gibson, is short and sweet, hits all the bases of a typical haunted house horror, but still packs a punch.

Jimmy Weber clearly has a bone to pick, his directorial debut (also his debut writing credit) Eat is, on many counts, a fearless shameless venture, out to upset the unsuspecting viewer. For a horror fan, it’s a rare thing to find something that genuinely curls your toes, makes your eyes water, and has you shuddering […]

Wyrmwood – DVD Review

Wyrmwood, the stunning debut feature from Kiah Roache-Turner is an impressive foray into the world of schlocky hand-made horror by a group of filmmakers dedicated to the ideals of Indy cinema. And it totally works.

Clown – DVD Review

Jon Watts’ Clown is an exceptional example of how much fun can still be had in the darkest corners of the horror genre without sacrificing a good story. Playing it straight in the realm of clown horror proves a bit of a tone twister, but actually works pretty perfectly in this Eli Roth produced monster […]

Bad Kids Go to Hell – DVD Review

Haunting of Crestview High actually takes the biscuit when it comes to lazy horror comedy. Riffing on The Breakfast Club with some seriously misguided “postmodern elements”, the film is clearly trying to be a nihilistic update of the classic 80’s sit-com, but doesn’t stop for a second to ponder whether that’s a worthwhile concept.

Absentia – DVD Review

Considering how well writer/director Mike Flanagan’s summer horror Oculus has done, it was always a matter of time before his debut got fast-tracked to a release date. And thank God it did.
