Edgar Allen Poe’s Black Cat (1981) (film blu-ray review).

1966 rural English life was an ugly time and place. The fashions and culture was decidedly beige. The preponderance of man-made materials were matched in brightness only by the lavishly applied cosmetics. Into this festival of earth-tones ‘Black Cat’ hisses into life, sort of. The original story was a tale of guilt and murder, ‘Black […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice (film review by Frank Ochieng)

One would think that the ultimate showdown between two of the most iconic super-heroes would make for some downright compelling action-oriented exploits against a landscape of angst and destruction. Plus, it certainly did not hurt that exhilarating filmmaker Zack Snyder (‘300’) was at the helm in bringing together the colorfully and concocted confrontation between The […]

The Last Woman On Earth (1960) (DVD review).

What would be the perfect film for Roger Corman to direct? One with minimal cast that can be done that quite neatly at the end of the world. Three divers come to the surface to find the oxygen in the air gone briefly but it was quick enough to kill all human life. There is […]

The Divergent Series – Allegiant (2016) film review by Frank Ochieng.

The first compulsion is to reach for an unflattering label when dubbing the third installment of the ‘Divergent’ series as ‘the poor man’s Hunger Games’. Sure, the comparison was inevitable but all the ‘Divergent’ editions had to do was prove that the unfair comparing and contrasting were wrong. Well, the knockoff status was indeed warranted and unfortunately this copycat YA […]

Fierce dogs roaming the countryside with a taste for blood that don’t stop at sheep because they have developed a liking for human flesh. It starts with an elderly farming couple in a remote location of South Australia. First, […]

The Mutilator (1986) (dvd/Blu-ray film review).

Shares in tomato ketchup suppliers must have gone up dramatically during the production of this movie, ‘The Mutilator’, because gallons of it will have been used. With a synopsis entitled, ‘by sword, by pick, by axe, bye bye’, it couldn’t be anything else. From 1986, here we have an outrageous example of gruesome horror. For […]

American Horror Project Vol 1 (horror film DVD/Blu-ray review).

There seems to be a formula here and that is to take three obscure movies from the 70s, movies that haven’t been seen for years, and put them back upfront in a lavish presentation costing over £40. However, you’ve got to think for yourself, why have they not been seen for years? The reason is […]

The Boy (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

Let’s face facts…it is inevitable that bad horror films and the new beginning of a movie season go together as systematically as skeleton bones to an unmarked grave. In either case, both scenarios are routinely realised and does not look to change at any time in the immediate future. Director William Brent Bell’s (‘The Devil […]
