Wyrmwood: Apocalypse - Blu-ray review
Posted on Saturday 30th April 2022
Wyrmwood ApocalypseWyrmwood: Apocalypse 101 Films Certificate 18 *** Zombie cinema is a genre that's literally dying on its feet. Restrained by its own concept strong or original movies of the undead are few and very far between. The TV series The Walking Dead and all its spin-offs has ensured that every possible avenue of interest or uniqueness has been followed. Wyrmwood: Apocalypse is a brutal and bloody ent...

The Boy Behind the Door - Blu-ray review
Posted on Friday 29th April 2022
The Boy Behind the Door CoverThe Boy Behind the Door Acorn Media Certificate 15 **** This title crept up on me, I knew little about it so went in blind, came out the other end disturbed, challenged and I have to admit, a bit emotional. The Boy Behind the Door takes a very sensitive subject, that of child abduction and the evils which go along with it, and ramps it to an extreme and intense level. ...

Scream - Blu-ray review
Posted on Sunday 10th April 2022
SCREAM 4K COVERScream Paramount Certificate 18 **** The last few years has seen a resurrection of genre favourites such as Halloween, Child's Play (and the Chucky TV series), Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters to name a few, and although Scream has already had a successful TV series the studio bosses decided that it was time for Ghostface to come back to the big screen. Twenty-five years after a streak of brutal murder...

Superhost - Blu-ray review
Posted on Saturday 2nd April 2022
Superhost CoverSuperhost Acorn Media Certificate 18 **** It seems that everyone and their friend want to be Vloggers, people who make videos hoping that the world will love them and their opinions and thus earn a decent living. We have "influencers", covering everything from opening "surprise" packages to giving their opinion on the latest trailer for whatever movie/TV is about to be released. Most blend into one...

Broadcast Signal Intrusion - Blu-ray Review
Posted on Saturday 19th March 2022
Broadcast Signal Intrusion CoverBroadcast Signal Intrusion Lightbulb Film Distribution Certificate 15 **** Over the years there's been a considerable amount of conspiracy theory themed movies, mostly inspired by The X-Files TV series. Few were able to carry the idea across a feature length movie, but Broadcast Signal Intrusion manages to grip and captivate with a running narrative that constantly twists i...

Sweetie, You Won't Believe It - Blu-ray review
Posted on Tuesday 22nd February 2022
Sweetie You Won't Believe ItSweetie, You Won't Believe It 101 Films Certificate 15 **** Comedy and horror are two genres that are difficult to combine and even more difficult to balance. Only a handful of movies get this right whilst countless others try their best but ultimately fail. Kazakh movie Sweetie, You Won't Believe It effortlessly gets things right and is a blood-splattered riot from star...

Posted on Friday 28th January 2022
Censor Blu-ray CoverCensor Second Sight Films Certificate 18 ***** For those of us old enough to remember the Video Nasty era of the early 80s, Prano Bailey-Bond's incredible debut, Censor will put you right back amongst the thick of it. With superb characterisations and a challenging almost uncomfortable atmosphere, this is one of the first "must-have" releases of 2022. Enid (Niamh Algar) spends her d...

Seance - Blu-ray review
Posted on Friday 28th January 2022
Seance coverSeance Acorn Media Certificate 18 *** Warning: This review contains mild spoilers. Written and directed by Simon Barrett (the same Simon Barrett who co-wrote the superb slasher, You're Next) delivers his debut movie in the driving seat and has given a competent if not the most original teen horror. Suki Waterhouse (Assassination Nation) plays Camille Meadows, the new girl at the prestigi...
