Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse (film review by Frank Ochieng).

We certainly get the inside joke about wanting to skewer something as raucous and ridiculous as lambasting nonsensical and numbing grade B horror flicks that are worthy of such scrutiny. After all, the temptation is just too much to resist in not exposing such throwaway thrills of intentional insipidness, correct? Plus, incorporating a mixture of […]

Bone Tomahawk (2015) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

Cowboys and troglodytes make for an unusual combination. ‘Bone Tomahawk’ is a Western that is also a comedy until the good humour runs out and what is left turns into a grim horror film. Against a background of the American Southwest, we have a story of a kidnapped woman and a posse that goes off […]

Tokyo Tribe (film review by Frank Ochieng).

Ardent followers of iconoclastic Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono will certainly rejoice in the continued surrealistic cinema that erratically meshes a combustion of various themes and genres thus generating a spicy spectacle of action-oriented exuberance. Sono, known for such colorful feisty-minded fare such as ‘Guilty Of Romance’ and ‘Suicide Circle’ will have one scratching their bewildered […]

Avengers: Age Of Ultron (2015) (Blu-ray film review).

You can’t say ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ doesn’t start off swinging when the team go into battle against a key Hydra unit who rely far more on their technology than the two Maximoff siblings to attack them with. However, it is the aftermath when Tony Stark investigates the Staff of Loki and discovers that its […]

She Devil (1957) (DVD film review).

I came across a reference to this 1957 film ‘She Devil’, a while back as it was based off the story ‘The Adaptive Ultimate’ by Stanley Weinbaum under his pseudonym of John Jessel and added to my bucket list, never dreaming my luck when I came across it recently as being available at long last. […]

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension (film review by Frank Ochieng).

There are certain film franchises that just cannot take a hint and go away. The idea of milking the stale novelty of the on-going queasy saga of repetitive horrifying hedonism is something that both the movie-makers and movie-goers are guilty of perpetrating that ultimately feeds into the chronic sequelitis of misbegotten movies refusing to surrender […]

The Last Witch Hunter (film review by Frank Ochieng).

There was a time when the movie gods were treating audiences to the omnipresence of zombies. One could not swing a dead cat without running into zombie-related cinema. It was all the rage at the box office that was experiencing a certain celluloid renaissance with overloading narratives within the ‘zombie zone’. Sure, zombies are still […]

Crimson Peak (2015) (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

The daughter of a wealthy man finds love with a handsome baronet and has little idea where this will lead her. Guillamo del Toro gives us a creepy ghost story with a colour palette doused in greens, drenched in saturated reds and set in the world of 19th century literary fiction. It is beautiful to […]

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, just let it in (trailer 2).

Ah, Star Wars: The Force Awakens . . . after the prequels, this looks like some of that old magic is coming back. I’ll be there at Christmas, and by the number of cinema servers that crashed in flames yesterday, so will you!
