Lily Collins To Play “Ash” In Evil Dead Remake

As if the idea of remaking such a horror classic wasn’t controversial enough it has now been revealed that the beloved character of Ash has been eliminated from the equation altogether in favour of Phil Collins’ beautiful daughter, Lily. An entirely new set of characters will be entering the woods to discover the Book Of The…

Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer (2007)

Buffy move over! There is a new slayer in town! Only he’s not a peppy 16-year-old cheerleader; he’s a surly plumber with anger management issues. Well two out of three isn’t bad… I had a good feeling about this film when I first stumbled across it on one of my frequent internet trysts. When I…

The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2009)

I suppose one writing a review on a film like this is a kind of rite of passage for any reviewer. Whenever I have read up on this movie, I always think to myself beforehand “What stance will they take?”.  Many admonished the film for its vulgarity, berated  it for its revolting and uncomfortable scenes….

Trailer: The Devil Inside (2012)

Exorcism, check. Manic behaviour, check. Ok, so I’m officially terrified. Set in Italy, a woman becomes ‘involved’ in several unauthorised exorcisms as she attempts to find out the truth about what happened to her mother, who apparently murdered three people during her own exorcism. Someone pass me some sedatives, because I’m not sleeping for weeks after…

Tony (2009)

The “serial killer” film is one that is generally done quite well. Every now and then one will come along that changes the rules and stuns you. Tony is one of those films. When I found Tony I kept bumping it down my watch list, subconsciously avoiding it. When I finally watched it I was…

The Messengers (2007)

The Messengers is the first English language movie directed by Oxide Pang Chun and Danny Pang – the two guys that gave us the 2002 Asian thriller, The Eye. A fairly standard and simple plot line, The Messengers focuses on Roy (Dylan McDermott) and Denise (Penelope Ann Miller) who uproot their somewhat troubled family from the city…

Wrong Turn (2003)

The first film of the Wrong Turn franchise opens as typical of many slashers– the death of two characters that have nothing to do with the rest of the film. Director Rob Schmidt sets the scene perfectly by killing off two college students who are rock climbing in West Virginia in a very gripping scene-…

Paranormal Activity 3 (2011)

Now that our beloved Saw franchise has bowed out after a massive seven films, Final Destination was poised to become the top “franchise in town” at long last. Sadly, it must wait patiently in second place still longer as the recent announcement of the fourth installment of the ever-popular Paranormal Activity series suggests it will…

The Most Anticipated Horrors of 2012

Most Anticipated Horrors of 2012 With all the excitement of Christmas and New Year’s Eve over and the dark days of January already beginning to take their toll, it’s easy to be depressed. But hey! Don’t fret, 2012 promises a whole smorgasbord of new horror films and 80s remakes (boo hiss) to keep you on…

Zombie Extravaganza!

I like all self-respecting horror fans love a good zombie movie and they are certainly churned out in generous numbers, even touching the small screen with The Walking Dead. Since my youth (not too long ago) I have found my dreams plagued with zombies, with me always waking up just before I’m bitten. As such…

Trailer: The Woman In Black (2012)

More fool anyone that stays in a house with a rocking chair. I’ve have vivid nightmares of The Woman In Black since seeing the stage show in 2007, and lest us not forget the original movie! Needless to say, I’m looking forward to seeing 2012’s stab at The Woman In Black. Let us hope we…

The Best Horror Movies Of 2011

As always it has been a mixed year for the beautiful horror genre. We’ve seen yet more world cinema delights, low-budget wonders and box office blunders. The scourge of prequels, sequel and remakes continue to plague us but the gems shine brightly enough to send them to the proverbial shadows where they belong (and hey,…
