SPOOKTOBER: Day 8 — Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

Potentially the most eagerly awaited film of the year, and with such a celebrated film as Ridley Scott's Blade Runner (1982) as its predecessor, Denis Villeneuve had a lot to prove, and a lot of expectations to meet, in his continuation... Continue Reading →

SPOOKTOBER: Day 7— The Neon Demon (2016)

The latest instalment from Nicholas Winding Refn, The Neon Demon certainly fits snugly alongside the vibrancy of his previous works. Brimming with stunning visuals and that familiar sense of nonchalance that seems to linger across his entire filmography, it’s a film that teeters on style-over-substance in the most enjoyable sense. Following the sixteen year old Jesse […]

SPOOKTOBER: Day 6 — IT (2017)

With another year comes another Stephen King adaptation; and with previous horror and thriller titles under his belt, as well as previous adaptations of the same material to compete with, Andy Muschietti’s (Mama, 2013) re-imagining of one of King’s most popular... Continue Reading →

SPOOKTOBER: Day 5 — Prevenge (2017)

It's already impressive for somebody to write, direct, and star in their own debut feature, but it's another story entirely when they manage to do so while heavily pregnant. Alice Lowe's Prevenge is not only a labour of love in these... Continue Reading →

SPOOKTOBER: Day 4 — Videodrome (1983)

Hardly the easiest director to pin down and categorise, David Cronenberg's Videodrome is a hearty example of his ability to create mind-melting films, with its equal helpings of social commentary and body horror coming together to create something truly bizarre. Focusing... Continue Reading →

SPOOKTOBER: Day 3—The Fog (1980)

Released into the world on a huge wave of expectation from the success of its predecessor (Halloween 1978), John Carpenter's The Fog is a valiant effort in placing horror within the unexpected and mundane. As a seaside town prepares for to... Continue Reading →

SPOOKTOBER: Day 2 — Little Shop of Horrors (1960)

Potentially more of a comedy than a horror, The Little Shop of Horrors (Dir. Roger Corman) is a charming little film that has rightfully amassed a cult following for its mixture of absurdity and science fiction that only be described as... Continue Reading →

SPOOKTOBER: Day 1—Countess Dracula (1971)

Perhaps confusing titled—given its distinct lack of vampire-y goings-on—Countess Dracula (Dir. Peter Sasdy) is certainly one of Hammer Horror's more atypical productions; deviating from the traditionally gothic intensity of its predecessors in favour of a romantic-thriller vibe. Following the story of an... Continue Reading →

Thoughts on: Baby Driver (2017)

The latest feature from Edgar Wright; Baby Driver is a crime-action film that resides somewhere between movies and music videos, managing to merge dialogue and choreographed movements into what can only be described as a living, breathing mix-tape. Ansel Elgort plays... Continue Reading →
