the woman

The Woman

Like father like son? This is one of the most obscure and demented movies I’ve seen for a while. I checked out the trailer and didn’t really understand the meaning of it which made me want to watch the movie even more. This is a graphic and brutal portrayal of abuse of women so be…

frank theory

The Frankenstein Theory

Don’t expect any scares in this movie because there aren’t any. It’s more a suspense thriller than a horror but don’t let that put you off watching it. This movie is very well made, well acted and keeps you wondering about what’s happening until about 30 minutes from the end. I was a bit put…

wolf creek 2

Wolf Creek 2

Wold Creek set the benchmark for Australian horror movies when it was released in 2006 and was always going to take a big effort to beat it. Wolf Creek 2 does beat it! Looking back over horror movie history, not many sequels are better than the original but in this case WC2 provides more action,…

idle

Idle Hands

Yet another classic comedy horror which is really well made. Starring the ever beautiful (and young) Jessica Alba, this is a very funny twist on the zombie genre featuring a great script, a great cast and excellent special effects. Released in 1999 this movie is what’s called a sleeper because it’s not all that well…

zombies

Aaah! Zombies!! (Aka Wasting Away)

This is one of the best zombie movies I’ve ever seen. It’s very well made, very well acted and very very funny! Using a combination of black and white scenes and color scenes, the movie is made from the perspective of the zombies’ point of view. The black and white footage shows the zombies from…

redd inc

Redd Inc.

Heads will roll… and they do! This is an interesting and well made movie and to be honest it surprised me with the content and the quality of the story. I thought it was going to be another brain dead slasher type movie but it impressed me with the script and quality of the special effects.…

chop

Chop

This could well be the only horror movie I’ve ever seen which has no graphic gore but still gets it’s message across. It’s an obscure movie which will keep you guessing until the very end as to why the main character is being treated the way he is. It’s also very funny. The movie starts…

cottage country

Cottage Country

Starring the ever loveable Tyler Labine (Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil), this is another fun romp of a movie with plenty of blood and humour. It also has some serious parts as well which makes it very entertaining on all levels. The movie is about a young couple Todd and Cammie who go away for…

The Station

The Station (Blood Glacier)

Known across the globe by two titles (The Station and Blood Glacier), this movie is almost a foreign remake of “The Thing“. There were many moments during this movie that made me think of the afore mentioned horror flick however, this has it’s own sprinkles of originality which makes it worth watching. This movie is…

In Fear

In Fear

One hour into this movie I was still wondering where it was headed. That’s a good thing because I love movies that keep me thinking. Although this is a low level psychological horror film, it’s entertaining and well made. It’s about a young couple who venture away to a music festival and a romantic weekend at…

devils due

Devil’s Due

Bear with me for this review, it’s longer than normal. After about five minutes watching this movie I turned it off and walked away because it’s yet another POV (camera shudder) movie. Regular readers of my reviews know this is the least favourite of my movie styles however, some do work and I give them…

Afflicted

Afflicted

If you’re wanting a different style of vampire movie this could be for you. If you don’t like POV movies with lots of camera shudder, you’ll probably want to give this one a miss. I don’t normally get into vampire movies because they’re very predicable to me but every now and then one comes along…

Serbian2

A Serbian Film

WARNING! This is one sick and twisted movie. Every now and then I watch a movie that makes me think… “who the hell thinks this stuff up?” And then I think to myself… “why am I watching this?”. It’s only after I watch movies like this that I question why I did. Like most people,…

Scarecrow

Scarecrow

In the same vein as Jeepers Creepers and many other scarecrow movies preceding it, comes this somewhat okay movie that’s good in some respects but not others. Firstly, the production quality is excellent. Good color and film direction make this very easy to watch. Also, the special effects even though they’re CGI are quite convincing…
