[DVD Review] The Taking (2013)

Dir: Cezil Reed, Lydelle Jackson Starring: John Halas, Alana Jackler, Lynnette Gaza The Film: THE TAKING wins the award for most bizarre film I have seen all year, and that’s saying something coming from me. This is an experience from start to finish, an experience in existentialism in the form of horror. This may not … Continue reading

Dir: The Butcher Brothers Starring: Cory Knauf, Samuel Child, Joseph McKelheer, Mackenzie Firgens, Ryan Hartwig,Elizabeth Henstridge The Film: I just saw The Hamiltons for the first time this month, as part of my 31 Days Of Horror marathon (you can see my mini review here) and I was curious to see where the follow up … Continue reading

DVD Review: Hated [MA15]

DVD Review: Hated [MA15]

Hated is a fairly different take on the ‘rise to fame’ sub-genre, this is a more mellow type of film about the ones who gets left behind. I do enjoy these types of films, while they can be ‘run of the mill’; generally there is something that sets each apart. Continue reading

DVD Review: Rabies [MA15]

Dir: Aharon Keshales, Navot Papushado Starring: Lior Ashkenazi, Danny Geva, Ania Bukstein The Film: Rabies (Kalevet) was a film I had heard about some time ago, it was being billed as the first Israeli slasher film.

DVD Review: The Guest Room [MA15]

Dir: Henry Olek Starring: Ross McCall, Susan Priver, Jude Ciccolella The Film: The Guest Room (aka Serving Up Richard) is an odd gem of a film, and it is surprisingly engaging despite being labelled as a cannibal film. Now I have nothing against cannibal sub-genre films, this element worked well for Hannibal Lector for example, … Continue reading

Dir: Ti West Starring: Sara Paxton, Pat Healy, Kelly McGillis The Film: I just want to get this out of the way now – I love Ti West! He really is a fantastic recent addition to the horror genre, he keeps things interesting and inventive. The Innkeepers which is his latest is no different, this … Continue reading

DVD Review: Don’t Let Him In [MA15]

Dir: Kelly Smith Starring: Sophie Linfield, Sam Hazeldine, Gordon Alexander The Film: From the get go we know we’re in for something gruesome, as the opening credit sequence tells us with Don’t Let Him In. It then tells us what led up to the event as we rewind a few days. We meet four characters, … Continue reading

DVD Review: Esoterica [MA15]

Dir: Sam Barrett Starring: James Helm, Karen Barrett, Ben Brown, Arielle Gray The Film: Esoterica is a film that I think will strike some people as being rather odd within the first 10 minutes. It kind of is if you aren’t too sure what it is about, but if you are a film noir fan … Continue reading

DVD Review: Territories [MA15]

Dir: Olivier Abbou Cast: Roc LaFortune, Sean Devine, Nicole Leroux, Cristina Rosato The Film: Territories is bound to go down as one of the more disturbing and just difficult to watch films that I have seen in 2011. This however does not make it a bad film; in fact this was a very good film. … Continue reading
