Exorcist: The Beginning (2004) Review

The Exorcist – The Beginning had a troubled production. When original director Paul Schrader turned in his finished movie, the producer – who performed the butcher job on the third Exorcist movie – said it wasn’t the... Read more

Carnival of Souls (1998) Review

A very liberal remake of the 1962 chiller, executive producer Wes Craven’s version takes the notion that our lead – Alex Grant (Bobbie Phillips) – has had a car accident but has yet to establish that she has died. Where this... Read more

Psycho IV: The Beginning (1990) Review

Given the angle taken by the third instalment, it’s a wonder that Norman is out again so quickly given that he was incarcerated for twenty-two years prior to Psycho II. But here he is out again and phoning up a talk radio station letting the... Read more

Halloween (2007) Review

Following on from cult hits House of 1,000 Corpses (2003) and the superior The Devil’s Rejects (2005) director Rob Zombie signed on to make the latest in the Halloween franchise. Zombie stated that his intention was to ignore the sequels and... Read more

I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) Review

For me the Kevin Williamson scripted Scream (1996), a huge international hit the year before this, was a bit of a non-event. Designed to appeal to the Friends generation it was funny in parts, but the post modern element was over egged and had... Read more

Land of the Dead (2005) Review

After the success of the likes of 28 Days Later (2002), Shaun of the Dead (2004) and more importantly the remake of Dawn of the Dead (2004) it was inevitable that the money-men would come to the man who made the genre his own, and ask him to... Read more

The Birds (1963) Review

Growing up, Saturday night in the family home was always a bit of a treat. It meant that I got to stay up and watch that weekend’s big movie. It’s hard for younger readers to conceive that before the advent of home rental and a wodge of movie... Read more

Creepshow (1982) Review

The early part of the 1980’s saw writer Stephen King’s name ascend beyond his ranks on the best-selling lists and make a name for himself with Hollywood, making decent stabs at adapting his material for the big screen – his books Carrie... Read more
