'Girls with Balls' - Review (Netflix)
Um, okay. I was not searching for it, though I always suspected it was out there. Up until this point, Alien Warfare had edged it as the worse film on Netflix. There had been some worthy challengers; ...

A Short Review of 'Gwen' (2019, William McGregor)
I almost missed Gwen entirely. It wasn't until I saw the review by critic Mark Kermode that I became aware of it's existence. As I researched into the film I found consistently that it received a number of very praising write ups. So I decided it would definitely be worth given a try and from what I saw of the trailer, further convinced me of that. Having gone to see it, I can say that it met all expectations. It is a film that has successfully melded both Folklore and Gothicism. Creating a hybr...

Last Caress
Necrophilia, like incest, cannibalism and other taboo practices, is a subject both forbidden and tawdry—attracting those low spirits who wish to be titillated by the morbid and revolting excesses of t...

Sleep well and dream of electric sheep. Rutger Hauer (1944-2019) There were, of course, far more iconic movies to review for Rutger Hauer. But none affected me and my love of horror as much as this mo...

Reed Alexander's Horror Review of 'The Possession of David O'Reilly' (2010)
Everyone who's a fan of my reviews, knows I'm not a fan of 'Shaky Camera.' There are exceptions to this, as with all things, but I feel it's a band wagon most studios need to start falling off. This m...

'The Dead Don't Die' (2019) Review
A bizarre melting pot of comedy, conventions, and concepts. From its hyped opening at Cannes, to its wide release, the reception for Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die (2019) has been a mixed bag. The ...

The New 'Halloween' Won't Just Have One Sequel
You heard correctly. It was recently announced that this will definitely not be the last we'll see of both Laurie Strode (and family) as well as the Myers himself. Somehow the dude with the Shatner ma...

'IT: Chapter Two'
The trailer has dropped for IT: Chapter Two, the second part of the Andy Muschietti version of Stephen King's hit book. Chapter Two will follow the adult version of the Loser's club as they return to Derry to try and end Pennywise for good, after almost defeating him as children in the past. The video is narrated by Mike (Isaiah Mustafa), as he tells his friends that while they have forgotten what happened to them 27 years ago, he remembers it all as he never left Derry. Pennywise will awaken an...

"Well That Was a Mistake!"; A Bad Movie Review of 'Humanoids From the Deep' (1980, Barbara Peeters)
This film has convinced me that all films involving humanoid-fish people for some reason insist on having them partake in sex with non-fish people. It's true! Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954, Jac...

A Short Review of 'Midsommar' (2019, Ari Aster)
Before we go into details, I should highlight, if you go to see this film, do not expect a truly scary horror film, because this isn't that. It is a highly intense, disturbing, psychological thriller and drama, with significant elements of humour and heavy connotations of folk horror, displaying a truly, strangely beautiful pagan nightmare. At the same time, it acts as a highly emotional and feminist story of an emotionally fragile and depressed woman having to deal with a bitter family loss and...

Reed Alexander's Horror Review of 'Hellraiser: Deader' (2005)
I'll give it this much, it was better than Hellraiser: Inferno. Of course, you could make a movie about drinking a shit milkshake and it would be better than Inferno. Yes, that's right, I'm suggesting...
