The Deaths of Ian Stone [ 2007 ] [ Hits:21856 ]
Review: The Deaths of Ian Stone is a horror/thriller that is best described as a blend of Groundhog Day, The Butterfly Effect and Highlander. Ian Stone’s life is a recurring nightmare. Every day he dies at the blade of a dark evil force, which is intent on draining his identity one life at a time. The film’s concept is similar to that of Groundhog Day in its cyclical narrative. This story-telling device is dark, and has stylistic elements similar to The Butterfly Effect thanks to Stan Winston’s sp...

Paranormal Activity [ 2007 ] [ Hits:6282 ]
Review: Paranormal Activity is the quintessential sleeper hit... not only has this indie horror gem been out for a few years, it's all about what goes on when you're sleeping. The film starts without any credits, opting for a title screen where Paramount thanks the San Diego police department and families of Micah Sloat and Katie Featherston for allowing them to broadcast the film. The premise of reality horror, a $15,000 low budget, 10 day shooting schedule and unprecedented box office success instantl...

Jennifers Body [ 2009 ] [ Hits:6186 ]
Review: Every now and then a movie comes along that blows our minds... well, Jennifer's Body is not that movie. It blows alright... but not in a good way. The creators of Juno must have been high on Oscar fever (or cocaine) when they decided to make Jennifer's Body. Imagine the setting in the creator's board room or hot tub...Jim: Right girls, it's all True Blood and Twilight right now, so let's do a horror. Let's star Hollywood's new Angelina, Megan Fox, fresh off the Transformers runway...Sally: And w...

A Nightmare on Elm Street [ 2010 ] [ Hits:5751 ]
Review: A Nightmare on Elm Street is one of the most successful horror franchises ever... carrying Freddy Krueger, the burnt man with a fedora and bladed claw through our nightmares for almost three decades. Freddy's colleagues, Halloween's Michael Myers and Friday the 13th's Jason Voorhees recently received their own remakes, so it was almost inevitable that Krueger would be given a face-lift remake. Rob Zombie's Halloween remake placed more emphasis on the face behind the mask, while the Friday the 13...

Zombieland [ 2009 ] [ Hits:5669 ]
Review: Zombieland is a rough place alright... especially if you don't know the fundamental rules of survival. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, you'd be wise to at least skim through the most important ones...if don't want to lose your head.ZOMBIELAND RULES #1 Cardio - if you can't outrun 'em, you're toast.#2 The Double Tap - two slugs in the head is better than one.#3 Beware of Bathrooms - pants down, chin up.#4 Seatbelts - only crash test dummies lock down.#6 Cast Iron Skillet - one swing and that...

Legion [ 2009 ] [ Hits:5600 ]
Review: Okay, so I've heard about Angels with Dirty Faces and Angels in the Outfield. I never thought I'd live to see the day angels started toting Thor's hammer and The Punisher's weapon of choice... until I saw Legion. When God realises that humanity isn't getting any better he decides to scour mankind from the face of the Earth. It's not a rapture, it's more of a nine plagues rolled-into-one zombie apocalypse. Michael, thinks God may have been a bit harsh and decides to sever ties with heaven by surg...

Piranha [ 2010 ] [ Hits:5318 ]
Review: Piranha 3D falls into the so-bad-it's-almost-good category of films. Joe Dante directed Piranha in 1978, a Roger Corman produced camp horror B-movie in the slipstream of the Steven Spielberg's Jaws. Alexandre Aja lends a level of credibility to the camp goings-on in this remake, since he's a member of the Splat Pack and directed the critically acclaimed gore-fest horror remake that is The Hills Have Eyes.  Piranha is best described as a blend of Jaws, Girls Gone Wild and Joe's Apartment. Now de...

The Wolfman [ 2010 ] [ Hits:5290 ]
Review: The Wolfman… Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Hugo Weaving and Emily Blunt. It’s a star-studded cast with The Rocketeer and Hidalgo director, Joe Johnston at the helm. You can also add Honey, I Shrunk The Kids, Jurassic Park III and Jumanji to his filmography, but don’t be fooled… Johnston’s a real talent. He’s already signed on to do The First Avenger: Captain America for 2011. His experience in fantasy and sci-fi shines through, two of the key components to most decent superhero ...

Scream 4 [ Hits:5276 ]
Review: Love or hate them – horror movies have become ingrained in popular culture to the point that spine-tingling one-liners like “Hi, I’m Chucky, wanna play?”, “Heeeeeeeeere’s Johnny!”,  “I see dead people.”,  “It’s alive! It’s alive!” and “They’re heee-re.” have become jokes. How else do you explain another Scream sequel?Wes Craven, one of horror’s luminaries, has been there and done that with a collection of classic ’80s horrors to make your blood curdle...

Trick or Treat [ Hits:4578 ]
Review: Trick 'r Treat was a slogan for Halloween until it became a movie tradition even more synonymous with the creepy holiday than John Carpenter's Halloween. That's right, Trick 'r Treat is an instant Halloween classic, which will no doubt receive an increase in reruns in the month of October every year. Superman Returns and X2 writer, Michael Dougherty, directed Season's Greetings in 1996, a short Halloween animation around the "Trick or Treat" exploits of Sam (derived from Samhain, Celtic name for...
