*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* THE MUMMY REVIEW *NEW*

Oh Mumma, the horror, the horror! Bring back Brendan Fraser! An ancient Egyptian princess (Sofia Boutella) is awakened from her crypt beneath the desert, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia, and terrors that defy human comprehension. Okay, it wasn’t that bad BUT it wasn’t that great either. To be honest, the opening act didn’t … Continue reading *NEW* THE MUMMY REVIEW *NEW*

*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*
