Sleepy Hollow Season 1 (2013) Review

I was a big fan of TV’s The X Files. Week upon week I would tune in to catch up with the adventures of FBI agent Mulder, and his sceptical partner Scully, as they looked into something unworldly. I bought into the plot arcs geared to... Read more

Bad Milo! (2013) Review

Rating: 8.0 from 10

One of my most common complaints about the genre of late is that it takes itself far too seriously. This means that even crap flicks that are usually entertaining for being crap are now just a sombre bore. That’s not to say that every... Read more

Hazard Jack (2014) Review

Rating: 7.0 from 10

Hazard Jack is a bulked-up war veteran suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. If that wasn’t bad enough when we first meet him he has been laid off from his job too. Rather than fritter away his newly found spare time Jack fills... Read more

The Vanishing (1993) Review

Rating: 2.0 from 10

Having made a movie that many critics were citing as scary and disturbing, it must have come as a surprise of sorts to the original director, George Sluizer, when he came to remake it for an American market – the very thing that marked... Read more

Rasen (AKA The Spiral) (1998) Review

Imagine a teenage boy in class asked to read aloud from an exciting tense piece of literature. Imagine that boy to have the most monotone voice, a voice with no inflection and that his reading is resoundingly flat and uninspired. In the case... Read more
