what we do in the shadows

What We Do In The Shadows

This is without doubt, one of the funniest horror movies I’ve seen in my life. It’s extremely well made and the acting and special effects are brilliant. There’s not a lot of blood and gore because the story focuses more on the very clever script and maintaining a constant humorous atmosphere. It’s filmed in a…

Even though this movie has been canned on YouTube (as most things are) I have to say, I really enjoyed it. It’s a different type of slasher flick that’s not too over the top with blood and gore and offers up a twist on internet stalking. The movie is about an emotionally fragile co-ed named…

Penance

Penance (USA)

WARNING! This is a brutal movie and very confronting. With unrelenting suspense and terror, Penance is the tale of a young mother, Amelia (Marieh Delfino), who hits upon hard times and decides to take her future into her own hands and becomes a stripper. Everything is going well until Suzy, her stripper friend, is beaten…

Dead Snow 2 – Red Vs. Dead (Norway)

Not as good as the first one but still excellent. I thought this version dropped a little in acting level at times but it remained true to it’s course and provided a great story. It had heaps of blood splatter and intestines being ripped from the living by the German zombies and provided humour at…

Deadly Virtues

Though the production quality ranged from good to excellent, overall this is a masterpiece. The movie is filmed over the course of a weekend, while a hypnotic home invader explores and exploits the relationship of a suburban, middle class couple. His brutal torture of the husband coupled with his seduction of the wife exposes uncomfortable…

Beauty Sleep

Beauty Sleep

(Short Movie – 12 Minutes) “Retro beginning, modern throughout, very little dialogue and leaves you with the feeling of WTF just happened”? This obscure film will take you on a journey and leave you wondering about what you just watched. And that’s why we love it. It’s weird as hell with scenes that are filmed…

Babadook

The Babadook (Australian)

Although it’s a horror movie, there’s not much horror. This is more a creepy and suspenseful type movie that really works. It’s so subtle in it’s build up, that it grabs you and drags you from scene to scene. Where there is imagination, there is darkness and from within that darkness lurks a being of…

War Games 2011 horror movie - YouTube 2014-11-07 13-06-18

War Games (Italian/English)

It looks predictable and it is. However, this movie is so well made it keeps you watching until the end. The story’s not new but the acting and production quality lead it along beautifully. It’s about a group of friends who visit a national park to spend the day playing a war game using replica…

town dreaded sundown

The Town That Dreaded Sundown

Don’t be fooled by the usual look of a masked man wielding a knife. This is not the “usual type slasher movie” it appears to be from the promos. Instead, this is a very well made and intelligent horror flick from some of the people involved with American Horror Story, Paranormal Activity and Insidious. The…

5150 elms way

5150 Elm’s Way (French)

This is one of those films that has generally slipped under the radar of most horror fans. Claimed as one of the most creative and well executed horror films in the last decade, I have to agree. This is very well written and directed and keeps you wondering where it’s headed. The movie is about 5150…

julias eyes

Julia’s Eyes (Spanish)

 Carrying on with the tradition of the classic “Foreign” horror movie we wanted to provide a review for this gem. It’s not strictly a horror movie but it has plenty of suspense and twists whilst providing a splash of blood throughout. It’ll also keep you wondering where it’s going which is what we love. The…

dumplings

Dumplings (Hong Kong)

This is the reason we love Asian horror movies. The creativeness and perverse nature of their movies make them interesting and entertaining. Dumplings maintains that culture by offering a sick and twisted story which will make you think twice about eating the little snack in the future. This is a disturbing psycho-drama about a woman’s…
