Outpost II: Black Sun (2012) Review

A couple of years back writer/director Steve Barker delivered a deliciously atmospheric, ghoulish and well acted Nazi zombie chiller called Outpost. A hardened bunch of mercenaries are paid a bundle to go on a mission where very little is... Read more

The Watermen (2011) Review

Rating: 5.0 from 10

Writer/director Matt L. Lockhart’s The Watermen is a film of two very distinct halves. The first introduces the characters, two brothers, a rich ‘player’ and three lovely ladies, and the second dispenses with them in a grisly fashion. Nothing... Read more

Some Guy Who Kills People (2011)

Rating: 5.0 from 10

Some Guy Who Kills People is a mixture of comedy and horror that fails to meld despite earnest performances from all. The fault lies completely with director Jack Perez who points the camera at his very choice acting collective but forgets to... Read more

Bereavement (2010)

Rating: 8.0 from 10

Writer/Director Steven Mena’s prequel to his own 2004 movie Malevolence is a grim affair. In a current genre climate that sees a general audience PG-13 geared flaccid horror thrills Bereavement is a gory break from the norm. It’s far from... Read more

The Darkest Hour (2011) Review

The Darkest Hour? Damn right! Only it’s not just an hour this sci-fi/horror nonsense will darken in your otherwise idyllic world. Trying adding another twenty nine minutes to that and you’ll be closer to the truth. What starts out as a frothy... Read more

Sometimes They Come Back (1991) Review

When Stephen King’s book Carrie received the big screen treatment, becoming both a critical and box office success, studios were keen to cash in and buy up the rights to any other King material regardless of their quality. For every The... Read more
