Shark Night 3D (2011)

I have to open this review with the following statement – This movie is TERRIBLE! However I’m not a reviewer who demands perfection from my movies, or even logical plots, of which Shark Night 3D has neither. What this film provides is a lot of insanely stupid fun…..in 3D. After the preliminary shark attack of…

Catacombs (2007)

When my co-editor Luke told me that P!nk was in a horror movie, I metaphorically spat my coffee out. P!nk, pop-rock star, in a horror movie, set in the catacombs? No way! Without further ado, we put the movie on, sat back and pondered whether we would have gone to the catacombs if we had seen this…

Last Of The Living (2008) & Husk (2011)

Now I know what your thinking. “Luke why are you reviewing these two films together? You’s crazy.” Maybe you’re right, dear reader, but consider these pivotal points. They sit side by side, sisters, as niched movies with A. lots of missed opportunities and B.  terrible plot holes. However, each possess something that the other lacks so…

To All A Goodnight (1980)

It’s one of those films that you always find on ‘Top Blah Greatest Christmas Horror Films’ lists, and with a title like To All A Goodnight, you instantly expect something a little more serious than Jack Frost and a little more creepy than the likes of Christmas Evil and so on. The story unfolds during…

Jack Frost (1996)

When someone refers to the movie Jack Frost you can be forgiven for thinking of  the 1998 festive dramedy concerning a lax father who dies in a car accident and gets a second chance as a snowman to put thing right with his long-suffering family.  However if you’re my way inclined it could be nothing…

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010)

I could not tell you the amount of times I have excitedly pressed played on the DVD during the Yuletide season only to be disappointed by yet another horrifically awful Christmas horror film. I had prepared myself for yet another ‘bah humbug’ of a movie, so you can only imagine how pleasantly surprised I was…

Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark (2011)

Click here to see this article published in the July/August issue of NXG Magazine Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark preview Don’t be afraid of the dark? Please, I have been petrified of it since I saw the 1970s original back in the late 90s. That children’s show Are You Afraid Of The Dark? didn’t…

Black Christmas (1974)

It’s no secret that the Slasher genre is never happier than when it’s desecrating one of the most sacred times of the year. New Year’s, Valentine’s Day and even April Fools’ Day have all been draped in red, but so rarely does it work as well as Black Christmas. The film opens in a familiar…
