The Evil Tree by Erik Hendrix and Daniel Thollin

‘The Evil Tree’ is a rather good ghost story that is rather let down by the artistic style used to depict it. With the story taking up 98 pages, there is room for quite a bit of bonus material filling it out to a respectable 110 pages. Erik Hendrix is credited as the writer with […]

ParaNorman (Frank’s Take).

There are not many slick stop-motion animated features to boast about recently until the arrival of freakish and fun-loving monster fable ParaNorman. Highly sophisticated in its ghoulish gumption, ParaNorman is indeed a goose-bump treat for the kiddies as well as their grown-up counterparts that will rejoice in the Gothic-style antics of humor, hokey-minded horror and […]

The Apparition (Frank’s Take).

The poltergeist puff piece The Apparition would not put a decent scare into Casper the Friendly Ghost. This generic boofest is set in the predictable confines of suburbia and ill-advisedly looks to capitalize on the Paranormal Activities phenomenon. Merely a derivative goose-bump ghost ride, The Apparition is the callow concoction of first-time feature film director-writer […]

Alan Moore’s recent ‘Neonomicon’ series introduced the author to a new generation of readers by placing his work and mythos at the centre of an investigation into a cult. While that series created a new angle to look at the author from, it’s important not […]

Killer Joe (Frank’s take).

The exploration of twisted family dysfunction in the movies has always been a reliable staple of instant tension, insanity, perversion and caustic psychological scope. In the sensationalized and sleazy-minded Killer Joe, we are introduced to a different kind of Mama’s boy that would make Psycho’s Norman Bates look like a choir boy in comparison. Wildly […]
