*NEW* THE SECRET OF MARROWBONE REVIEW *NEW*

A secret worth finding out? From the writer who penned The Orphanage . . . I will admit I may have set my expectations a little high. To see a low key period horror pop up during the summer blockbuster season was a shocker enough. A young man and his three younger siblings, who have … Continue reading *NEW* THE SECRET OF MARROWBONE REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* A QUIET PLACE REVIEW *NEW*

Shhhhh--- Shocking. BUT for the right reasons? A family is forced to live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound. A tight, taut little thriller. Looks like Jim from The Office USA has a prosperous career in directing with his first foray into horror. AQP reminded me very much of M. Night Shyamalan's Signs … Continue reading *NEW* A QUIET PLACE REVIEW *NEW*

THE RITUAL REVIEW

If only they could have summoned up a quicker pace . . . A group of college friends reunite for a trip to the forest, but encounter a menacing presence in the woods that's stalking them. The opening act set the tone as the lads (comprising of a talented and underrated British cast) debated about … Continue reading THE RITUAL REVIEW

*NEW* GHOST STORIES REVIEW *NEW*

Spookay. Horrific BUT for the right reasons? Skeptic Professor Phillip Goodman (Andy Nyman) embarks upon a terror-filled quest when he stumbles across a long-lost file containing details of three cases of inexplicable 'hauntings'. As soon as the heavy breathing hit those speakers over the opening title sequence, I knew what I was in for. The … Continue reading *NEW* GHOST STORIES REVIEW *NEW*

47 METRES DOWN REVIEW

Thumbs down? Two sisters vacationing in Mexico are trapped in a shark cage at the bottom of the ocean. With less than an hour of oxygen left and great white sharks circling nearby, they must fight to survive. I loved the cheesy 80s horror movie style title sequence and that creepy rift. Somebody knows their … Continue reading 47 METRES DOWN REVIEW

*NEW* MOTHER REVIEW *NEW*

Oh MOTHER! That was bad. A couple's relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence. I guess I wasn't as big an Aronofsky fan as I thought. The very epitome of a Marmite movie. For some, an existential dissection of life through religious allegory. For me, a meandering mess … Continue reading *NEW* MOTHER REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* IT REVIEW *NEW*

IT didn’t do much for me. The highest grossing horror movie in box office history? Really? A group of bullied kids band together when a shapeshifting demon, taking the appearance of a clown (Bill Skarsgard), begins hunting children. For all the hype, I expected something more. Not to say, I didn’t enjoy it. BUT a … Continue reading *NEW* IT REVIEW *NEW*
