Spider 3D trailer.

Spiders3DTrailer from Heather Wixson on Vimeo. It’s been a while since we’ve had a film where giant monsters smash up large cities like New York – although if you live in Japan, there was probably one of these on the cinema last week. In Spiders (3d, groan), you have the spectacle of giant mutant spiders […]

He still recommends their work, but notes that too many of their generation hold […]

The Thompsons (2012) (movie review).

Watching a movie directed by the Butcher Brothers means you are just asking for trouble and there is plenty of that in ‘The Thompsons’, the follow-up from an earlier, if somewhat more amateurish offering called ‘The Hamiltons’. Actually, their real name isn’t Butcher at all, it’s the duo Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores, also responsible […]

Zombie A-Hole (2012) (film review).

‘Zombie A-Hole’ is an ultra-low budget grindhouse B-movie by young American director Dustin Mills. It’s his first live-action film, following on from 2010’s ‘Puppet Monster Massacre’ and was made for the princely sum of $1000. Can a film this cheap possibly be worth watching? Despite serious initial reservations, not helped by the ridiculous name chosen […]

House at the End of the Street (Frank’s Take).

Well folks…what is in store for you in the hackneyed horror flick ‘House At The End Of The Street ? The answer: nothing much that your ordinary generic and flatly delivered frightfest has not demonstrated countless times before.

Well described with an intense, haunting sense of place, ‘The Hunting Ground’ looks at the nature of family, love and hate.   When Elliot and his younger brother Ben […]
