The Hallow (a film review by Frank Ochieng)

There is no doubt that the majority of horror flicks being churned out for the big screen incorporate a grand and glossy look that feels majestic in all its expressive macabre tendencies. Sure, the elegance of a fright fantasy that pushes its visually sumptuous sheen will enhance the surrealistic gore with more eye-popping resonance. However, […]

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse (film review by Frank Ochieng).

We certainly get the inside joke about wanting to skewer something as raucous and ridiculous as lambasting nonsensical and numbing grade B horror flicks that are worthy of such scrutiny. After all, the temptation is just too much to resist in not exposing such throwaway thrills of intentional insipidness, correct? Plus, incorporating a mixture of […]

Tokyo Tribe (film review by Frank Ochieng).

Ardent followers of iconoclastic Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono will certainly rejoice in the continued surrealistic cinema that erratically meshes a combustion of various themes and genres thus generating a spicy spectacle of action-oriented exuberance. Sono, known for such colorful feisty-minded fare such as ‘Guilty Of Romance’ and ‘Suicide Circle’ will have one scratching their bewildered […]

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (film review by Frank Ochieng).

There are certain film franchises that just cannot take a hint and go away. The idea of milking the stale novelty of the on-going queasy saga of repetitive horrifying hedonism is something that both the movie-makers and movie-goers are guilty of perpetrating that ultimately feeds into the chronic sequelitis of misbegotten movies refusing to surrender […]

The Last Witch Hunter (film review by Frank Ochieng).

There was a time when the movie gods were treating audiences to the omnipresence of zombies. One could not swing a dead cat without running into zombie-related cinema. It was all the rage at the box office that was experiencing a certain celluloid renaissance with overloading narratives within the ‘zombie zone’. Sure, zombies are still […]

Crimson Peak      (film review by Frank Ochieng)

The feasting of the eyes comes to mind when realising the polished opulence of writer-director Guillermo del Toro’s Gothic supernatural production ‘Crimson Peak’. Undeniably luscious and wonderfully bizarre, ‘Crimson Peak’ is a psycho-sexual thriller that resonates with the enticing visual senses and registers with the proper amount of off-kilter seduction and twisted charm. For filmmaker del Toro his […]

Pan (film review by Frank Ochieng).

As likened to an innocuous fairy tale rash, the movie mythology surrounding J.M. Barrie’s classical kiddie character ‘Peter Pan’ comes and goes when it pleases. Naturally, there have been several big screen interpretations to outlast one’s reserved stash of pixie dust to fling around. From perhaps the best known animated film adaptation of Walt Disney’s […]
