OMID: “So, you want us to just sit here and wait to die?” SIOBHAN: “I want us all to stay on the boat until we are sure none of us is infected. It’s not my life, it’s your families – it’s your husbands, your babies. Blame me if you want,...

Rental Review: Trick

Having been reared on slasher movies in the 80s and 90s – and still being partial to them to this day – I approached Trick with something close to a sense of excitement. A real throwback effort, we have a masked killer, killings aplenty, clueless...

Chances are, if you have dipped your toes in the waters of horror cinema with any regularity, you will already have felt the icy touch of a film like Look Away many, many times before. One of those ‘troubled teen’ flicks that hold no surprises – in...

Blu-Ray Review: Evil Dead 2

If I was put on the spot and asked to name the best sequels ever committed to film, I reckon I would simply HAVE to put Evil Dead 2 near the very top of the list. Bigger, better and bolder than the original instalment, Evil Dead 2 is actually a bit of a...

DVD Review: The Neighbour

I am sure all of us, probably on more than one occasion, have sat through a film that is not really that much to shout about, but the whole thing is made watchable by a standout performance from one of the leads. Shuffling its way on to that list is The...

DVD Review: Nancy
