Film Review

SXSW 2017 – Mayhem (2017)

A virus has broken out reducing inhibitions and turning people into emotionally unbalanced (and frequently violent) lunatics. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before right? Mayhem isn’t flat out dystopia, wisely choosing the path of claustrophobic chamber piece over full on apocalypse. It doesn’t work all that well, but […]

World Cinema Wednesday: Train To Busan (2016)

As sleek and fast-moving as the titular vehicle, Train To Busan is yet another zombie film reinvigorating a subgenre that is so often mistakenly identified as dead already (yes, the irony is not lost on me). Written and directed by Yeon Sang-ho, this is an adrenaline-pumping mix of tension, bloodshed, and […]

The Girl With All The Gifts (2016)

I first heard about The Girl With All The Gifts a few years ago, when picking up a few last Christmas gifts for my wife. It was recommended to me by a staff member in Waterstones, after I’d enquired about some of the recent popular choices I may have been unaware […]

Blair Witch (2016)

Don’t Breathe (2016)

If you can remember the thrillers Wait Until Dark and Blind Terror then you will be familiar with the scenario here; people breaking into the home of someone who is blind. What you may be less familiar with is the idea that it’s the blind person who ends up being the most dangerous, […]

Harvest Lake (2016)

Although it may not always seem like it, I take my contributions to Flickfeast very seriously. Which is why I made a serious enquiry before writing this review about the image I had picked to accompany it. To anyone who has yet to see the film, that might just look […]

31 Days Of Horror #31: Cell (2016)

You know what they say, the devil makes work for idle handsets. It’s a given nowadays that any movie adapted from a Stephen King story has a 50/50 chance of being good or bad. Some might say that the misses now far outweigh the hits. I am inclined to be […]

31 Days Of Horror #30: The Neighbour (2016)

From the people who brought you The Collector and The Collection, here is another bit of grisly horror, once again putting actor Josh Stewart in some dire circumstances. He plays John, a man who spends his time, alongside his wife (Rosie, played by Alex Essoe), running various smuggling operations on behalf of […]
