Blu-Ray Review: Hell Drivers

Rough, hard-nosed and thoroughly ‘British’, Hell Drivers makes a welcome return to shelves thanks to a superb Blu-Ray restoration. A classic thriller, starring a veritable who’s who of the UK’s acting talent of the time, Hell Drivers delivered the...

DVD Review: Viral

A reasonably enjoyable watch, but covering no new ground if truth be told, Viral is one of those films that has pretty much vanished from memory as soon as the credits roll. A mix of infection chiller and zombie carnage, this is very much teen horror...

DVD Review: Wolf Creek – The TV Series

I hated Wolf Creek. Released in 2005 (and drawing on the real-life crimes of Outback serial killer Ivan Milat as well as the Peter Falconio case), I thought the movie was a grubby wallow in the reptile brain of Australian masculinity and badly wanted a...

DVD Review: Never Let Go

Taking every parent’s worst nightmare and ramping it up to near-hysterical levels, Never Let Go is a ballsy, kinetic abduction thriller that proves a thrilling watch. Showcasing an eye-catching turn from lead Angela Dixon, Howard J Ford’s effort is a...

Rental review: The Landlord

Much of horror cinema classically has played on our fears of the unknown, of the supernatural and the other…something fantastical that we cannot fully comprehend with anything other than fear. One only needs to look at the lasting legacy of creatures such...

Rental Review: Lake Nowhere

Drawing explicitly on the classics of the video era such as Friday the 13th, Rabid, and The Evil Dead, Lake Nowhere is an exuberant blast from the past that immerses itself in horror history to distil a wonderfully attuned work of genre adoration, making the...

DVD Review: Jane Got A Gun

Hoping to find a more welcoming home on its DVD release than its blink-and-you’ve-missed-it cinema outing earlier this year, Jane Got A Gun proves a satisfying, if somewhat underwhelming watch. A western that is part action flick, part brutal revenger...

DVD Review: Pandemic

In the wake of the ballyhoo surrounding Hardcore Henry, the vogue of the first person perspective seems in a prime position to flood the cinematic market…for better or for worse. Not without its problems, it’s unquestionable that, as a technique, it holds...
