Review: The Gift

A young married couple’s lives are thrown into a harrowing tailspin when an acquaintance from the husband’s past brings mysterious gifts and a horrifying secret to light after more than 20 years. Do you remember an era of SINGLE WHITE FEMALE? What about PACIFIC HEIGHTS? You know I loved those films, taking the idea that…

Review: Victor Frankenstein

Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Viktor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man – and the legend – we know today. Frankenstein is one of those classic horror stories that I didn’t really…

Review: Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse

Three scouts, on the eve of their last camp-out, discover the true meaning of friendship when they attempt to save their town from a zombie outbreak. This was a movie that I expected very little from and hadn’t heard much about apart from seeing the trailer once and yet this may turn out to be…

Review: A Christmas Horror Story

Interwoven stories that take place on Christmas Eve, as told by one festive radio host: A family brings home more than a Christmas tree, a student documentary becomes a living nightmare, a Christmas spirit terrorizes, Santa slays evil. This little slice of horrific, festive fun went down a treat at this years’ Frightfest. An anthology…

Review: Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension

Using a special camera that can see spirits, a family must protect their daughter from an evil entity with a sinister plan. To say I was not looking forward to this movie was a huge understatement. This is a horror franchise which went totally off the rails with the first PARANORMAL ACTIVITY movie being excellent…

Stung-feat

Review: Stung

A fancy garden party turns into upper class prey when a colony of killer wasps mutates into seven foot tall predators. A decent level of chemistry between two convincing leads can’t save Stung, a limp horror-comedy creature-feature that shoots for Zombeavers-esque midnight-movie fun, but lands disappointingly wide of the mark with an end result that’s…

Review: Crimson Peak

Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers. The horror film that’s not a horror film, how exactly does…

Review: We Are Still Here

In the cold, wintery fields of New England, a lonely old house wakes up every thirty years – and demands a sacrifice. This year’s Frightfest guest of honour was the terrific Barbara Crampton. Making a comeback to both the big screen and the horror genre she appeared in no less than four films across the…
