The Dark Tapes [ Hits:1207 ]
Review: The Dark Tapes is a found footage horror sci-fi thriller told in four parts as the paranormal invades the lives of ordinary people. This independent horror, which has been compared with V/H/S, was driven by Michael McQuown who served as co-director, writer and creator. The first story 'To Catch a Demon' follows a physics professor and two assistants, who have been hired to oversee a sleep experiment to observe an inter-dimensional being, which has been disturbing the professor in his sleep. The...

It's Complicated [ Hits:0 ]
Review: It's Complicated is a short film directed by Grant De Sousa, starring Paul Snodgrass, Johann Vermaak and Lise Slabber. We follow two buddies as we discover that the someone (or something) that "swiped right" for Andy is now on their doorstep. Lovestruck, it seems that Nigel's desperate attempts to warn his friend of his girlfriend's obvious flaws are ignored. Poking fun at the Tinder and Facebook generation of scary hookups and relationship statuses, De Sousa explores these themes with tongue-t...

Blair Witch [ Hits:1527 ]
Review: Blair Witch is comparable with Evil Dead 2 in as much as it's delivering what the first one did, with less novelty and more finesse. The original The Blair Witch Project was one of the first found footage horror films to emerge and while the hype exceeded delivery, managed to carve out a new genre of cinema, signalling a cross-over between high-end and commercially available video recording. While the low budget horror was something of a shaky-cam pioneer, it received favourable reviews, tippin...

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies [ Hits:1506 ]
Review: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies isn't a spoof. It may sound ridiculous, blending Jane Austen's old world romance with the blood-thirsty underworld of the undead, but it's actually quite a refreshing concept. The idea has been executed with style, carrying the same production values as a period piece drama, while injecting some gory zombie action. The mash-up works suprisingly well, immersing us in a time when the infected roam the countryside in search of human brains, while the living do their ...

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones [ Hits:2294 ]
Review: The Paranormal Activity franchise has been running strong for a good few years now, churning out a new found footage film every year. The concept of a handheld camera film has been played to death ever since The Blair Witch Project, but the flagging "what goes bump at night" series manages to make a profitable money grab at the box office, something most films fail to do. The series has thrived on the novelty and scare factor of the first film. Oren Peli's inspiring low budget vision has sparke...

Evil Dead [ Hits:2511 ]
Review: The new Evil Dead remake's movie poster proudly proclaims: "The most terrifying film you will ever experience.". While this bold statement does make you wonder, it's actually not far from the truth. The original The Evil Dead is a grotesque yet accomplished film. Sam Raimi carved out cult stars for himself and Bruce Campbell by blending black comedy and horror into a comic book style storm in a log cabin. The Evil Dead's twisted sense of humour softened the horror to the point that the lengths ...

Warm Bodies [ Hits:4061 ]
Review: Paranormal romance is now a thing. Bloodthirsty vampires and werewolves used to prey on the hearts of humans, but now it's a feast of love, not entrails. One of the horror creatures not to make the cut in Twilight was zombies. Overall, the most humanoid of the lot... the living dead did not get a chance to win Bella's heart. Perhaps the thought was too macabre, messed with Edward's skin tone and delved a little too close to necrophilia for public consumption? Warm Bodies has changed that in a f...

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter [ Hits:4504 ]
Review: Abraham Lincoln was the 16th U.S. President, who in his several years in office, led America through the Civil War, maintained the Union and ended slavery before he was assassinated in 1865. The great man has been immortalised, which explains why Steven Spielberg is releasing Lincoln, a biography starring Daniel Day-Lewis, and Seth Grahame-Smith's fantasy horror novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has received the Hollywood treatment. Just the title, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, makes yo...

The Woman in Black [ Hits:4213 ]
Review: Daniel Radcliffe stars in The Woman in Black, his follow-up to the beloved Harry Potter series, which shaped his career. Now the young British actor has the challenge of overcoming Harry Potter in the same way that Sean Connery had to shake his James Bond persona. To start the disassociation, Radcliffe has chosen The Woman in Black, an adaptation of Susan Hill's popular horror novel, written by Jane Goldman and envisioned by Eden Lake writer-director James Watkins. The Woman in Black is ...

Paranormal Activity 3 [ Hits:4534 ]
Review: Paranormal Activity 3 continues the low budget horror series created by Oren Peli. The new chapter is a prequel, taking us back to the '80s, where we learn where, how and why Katie's haunting started. Critically-acclaimed Catfish filmmakers Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman direct what could very well be the best Paranormal Activity yet. We're taken back to footage of Katie's life before the "demon". Her mother's live-in boyfriend is a freelance videographer and editor who stumbles upon some stra...
