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.

The predictable ritual of enduring the Resident Evil film franchise is a critical cross that most film critics have to bear. Think of it as the occupational hazard of the profession. Now in all fairness there are countless filmmakers that milk a movie series regardless of its repetitive, rancid quality. Certainly Len Wiseman immediately comes […]

Don’t blame the zombies.

There’s a new trailer for the Walking Dead, in which the living bigots once again prove their prejudices against their non-life’d citizens. Shocking stuff. One day Rick and his band of marauding killers will be held to account. Or eaten. Probably eaten. Thanks to SFX for bringing this piece of gruesome evil to our attention.

[REC] 3: Genesis (Frank’s take).

The banal bloodbath of the creepy continuation in the [REC] movie series is extended as it does not disappoint in the cheesy realm of shapeless shock cinema. The nonsensical and nauseating [REC] 3: Genesis is the tedious third installment emanating from the 2007 Spanish horror show that surprisingly gave a refreshing gruesomeness to the perverse […]

The Possession (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

A family going through a painful divorce is also subjected to the ravages of a dybbuk, a possessing spirit from Jewish folklore. Until this point probably all dramatic stories of dybbuks have been based on a single famous play by Shalom Ansky. This film uses the concept of a dybbuk, but seems to have it […]
