You’re Next (2013)

(This post contains minimal spoilers) At last year’s London Frightfest I sadly missed out on several features that got rave reviews from both the critics and audiences. Call it laziness, but I just didn’t fancy watching one of the hotly tipped films when it was theatrically released. The film in question would be You’re Next, … Continue reading

Re-evaluating Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (1992)

I find it amazing how your own film tastes can change over the course of a few years. Certain films that are revisited suddenly appear to be better than when they were first viewed. Case in point would be my first reaction to watching Hellraiser 3: Hell on Earth back in the late 90s. Having … Continue reading

“It’s time to play!”- Views on Curse of Chucky (2013)

Originally for my 100th blog post I was going to write about Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein (1994). I recently saw 5th sequel to the Child’s Play franchise and just wanted to blog about it more. So for my official 100th post, may I present my views on Curse of Chucky. Horror fans, we’re a devoted and … Continue reading

Friday Night Frights # 2 – Friday The 13th Part 6: Jason Lives (1986)

A similar piece to this was originally published back in May 2011, but I’ve decided to attempt another as part of my Friday Night Frights series. As its Friday the 13th today (if you are reading this on a Friday that is), now seems as good a time as any to have another look at … Continue reading

C’est un Maniaque

Last year I was told about how different and interesting the remake of William Lusting’s 1980 Maniac was. But being my usual stubborn self I thought of it as yet ‘another’ remake (minus the original sleaze), casually dismissed it as hyperbole. Not being a fan of remakes (minus John Carpenter’s The Thing and Chuck Russell’s The Blob) I … Continue reading

Delights Of The Carnival

Once again the super-fantastic Lydia Mitchell has provided my blog with a great piece on the 1962 horror feature Carnival Of Souls. So sit back, relax (if you dare) and enjoy another quality guest spot from a fellow horror fan. If there is one thing I will attest to for the rest of my life, it … Continue reading

Chainsaw’s & Catalogues

I asked the rather awesome Adam Akers (webmaster over at Attack From Planet B) if he would be interested in contributing to my humble little blog. Thankfully he agreed instantaneously by providing this piece on his first encounter with horror films (more specifically Texas Chainsaw Massacre). So sit back and relax as you read the … Continue reading

Shock Shock, Horror Horror!

When the opportunity arose to interview the creepy gents responsible for a new genre magazine, I grabbed it with both of my blood soaked horror hands. Editor Dean Boors and layout artist Jason Miller graciously answered my probing questions and spill their guts on the magazine. So sit back, relax and indulge in some fine … Continue reading
