  • Rabid

    Rabid

    ★★★★½

    It's taken me close to a week to put my thoughts to paper after witnessing the world premiere of RABID in front of a packed out IMAX screen at Frightfest. The atmosphere at Frightfest is always amongst the best, it contains excited genre film fans who are looking to get the next kick out of something spooky, intense, gruesome or brilliant (sometimes all 4) and when the turn came for RABID, atmosphere was at fever pitch. The whole audience was…

  • One Cut of the Dead

    One Cut of the Dead

    ★★★★★

    Every so often a film hits you right in the nose and demands your attention, focus and wants to be the center of your everything. ONE CUT OF THE DEAD is one such film.

    I don’t know anything about the behind the camera or crew work, I am simply a film fan who enjoys what is front of me, but that does not mean I can’t appreciate what goes on behind the scenes. OCOTD is like a sneak peek into…

    Pusher II: With Blood on My Hands

    ★★★★½

    For a second Saturday in a row I opted to go visit Nicolas Winding Refn's dark & gritty Denmark after really enjoying my first venture. With the focus on Mads Mikkelsen's intriguing Tonny this time around, I was hooked from the off. Similarly to the first movie, the film doesn't go in all guns blazing but slowly builds a story and builds an entirely realistic world. Again, being a dealer or involved in the drug game is not glamorouised, instead these…

  • Poker Night

    Poker Night

    ★★

    I enjoyed the start with its noir influence with gritty narration on full show with familiar faces in tow and a fun anthology feel to its storytelling around a poker table discovering secrets, lies and adventure all linked together by a masked up serial killer who combines extremely dark material with some WTF humour moments. Sadly though the film seems to really lose all plot and motivations around the half way mark as the writing takes a nosedive as the…

  • Anna and the Apocalypse

    Anna and the Apocalypse

    ★★★★★

    I love horror and I have a soft spot for musicals so when I heard about this film I was all sorts of intrigued. For some reason, I was expecting something fairly average and ended up with a gourmet meal. This is the quintessential genre Christmas film.

    ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE is beautiful to look at, wonderful characters and sets and is an extreme comfort on the eye but that is only the beginning. This film is a musical so…

  • Summer of 84

    Summer of 84

    ★★★★

    SUMMER OF 84 is the film the 2017 version of IT should have been between the Pennywise sections. The kids are brilliant in this, not over the top or over-dramatized, they feel entirely real and mischievous. They get comedy gold lines and enough solid interactions to make you feel fully invested in their journeys.

    The film itself feels like the STRANGER THINGS have moved into THE ‘BURBS with wonderful characters that haven’t felt so likeable since TURBO KID. It is…
