A box-office smash: IT is officially the most successful horror film of all time. Stephen King, you must be proud. This horror flick is a top grade remake, driven by a real feeling of dread and I kept thinking that Pennywise isn’t the only monster – the parents of the kids are awful too. It […]

Lights Out (2016): An Old-School ‘Bump in the Night’ Movie

The plot in Lights Out hinges on a simple concept – a demon you can only see in the dark. Rebecca (Teresa Palmer) and her little brother Martin (Gabriel Bateman) are being stalked by this entity, which has a strange connection to their manic mother Sophie (Maria Bello).

The Wailing (2016): An Epic Korean Horror Flick

About twenty minutes into this horror film, I was really surprised to be laughing. The Wailing starts out with slapstick comedy and buddy cop humour. Jong-goo (Do-won Kwak) bumbles his way through a murder investigation while providing for his family. He’s a hilariously rubbish cop, but a likeable guy. Being Mr Nice Guy won’t help him solve […]

The film follows Kathy (Zoe Kazan) and her child Lizzy (Ella Ballentine), whose car breaks down on […]

The Babadook (2014)

“If it’s in a word, or it’s in a book, you can’t get rid of the Babadook,” warns a handmade pop-up book, which the widowed Amelia (Essie Davis) reads to her son Sam (Noah Wiseman) in the indie horror film, The Babadook. Deceptive, suspenseful and creepy as hell, Jennifer Kent’s spine-tingling film may just be one of […]

5 Of The Best Horror Remakes

Over the years, there has been an excess of remakes of classic horror films. The majority of these remakes are nowhere near as good as the original. A lot of them are really unnecessary, and where they are supposed to be an update and an improvement on the original; most of the time they end […]

Triangle (2009)

Triangle: how to talk about this movie without giving anything away? Perhaps a good start would be to praise Christopher Smith for coming up with such a unique, mind-boggling story, that demands your attention. This brain twisting film starts out like any other. Jess (Melissa George) a single mother of an autistic son, goes on […]
