It is made harder by the authors who have taken the tradition scary monster such as the werewolf and vampire […]

Be Afraid (2017) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

Director Drew Gabreki manages to create an atmosphere of dread from a cliché-ridden plot supplied by scriptwriter Gerald Nott. A successful doctor escapes the big city and goes to live in a small idyllic Pennsylvania. The results are just about what horror fans would expect. The story is more complex than it at first appears, […]

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2016) (DVD film review).

Interestingly, the recap at the beginning will bring you up to speed and you can follow what is going on without the previous five films, although in this instance, I have seen them. I also […]

Phantasm blu-ray boxset: Phantasm IV: OBLIVION (1998) (part 4 of 5) (Blu-ray film review).

The fourth ‘Phantasm’ film, ‘OBLIVION’, capped because ‘IV’ is in the centre and lower case, ‘l’ makes it look wrong, continues directly after the third film, even if there is a recap of what happened previously. It’s hardly much of a giveaway that Reggie (actor Reggie Bannister) survives as the Tall Man (actor Angus Scrimm) […]

Underworld: Blood Wars (2016) (Blu-ray horror film review).

Odd thing. The blu-ray version of ‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ is 91 minutes long and the DVD version is 80 or 88 minutes depending where you look. Make of that as you will, I’m reviewing the blu-ray version. I’m a little behind watching the ‘Underworld’ films and this is the fifth in series. Fortunately, there is […]
