Horror Review 26: Martyrs

Martyrs is a movie that’s as hard to review as it can be to watch.  It’s the type of movie where I don’t want to give a brief description of the movie as I don’t want to ruin the experience for the people who are going to watch it, so I won’t examine the story…

Horror Review 25: Session 9

Session 9 to me is a unique movie.  For one it’s filmed in an old abandoned Mental hospital which of course adds to its spookiness.  Another thing that makes it unique is that because of its low budget and the style of filming it provides scares without really having to be in your face.  Something…

Horror Movie 24: Shaun of the Dead

Shaun of the Dead is a good movie, we all know it.  It’s the benchmark that seems to be used to compare any zombie comedy movies that are made now (can we say Zombie land).  So I might as well give my view on Shaun of the Dead and examine if it’s fair to compare…

Horror Movie 22: The Shining

When asked what is my favourite movie I always find it hard to name one.  It could be a Clockwork Orange, it could be An American Werewolf in London or it could be many more that I love.  One of the candidates for that top spot would have to be The Shining.  I’ve read the…

Horror Movie 21: The Howling

My favourite werewolf movie is An American Werewolf in London one of my other favourites would be The Howling and it’s very fitting that these two movies came out in the same year.  One featured the full transformation to wolf, the other had the werewolf in more of a blend of man and wolf which…

Horror Movie 19: Doghouse

Doghouse is a strange movie.  It has some annoying characters (which would be Danny Dyer, playing himself strangely enough) but overall it’s quite good. The story is quite simple, six friends all having problems with their girlfriends/boyfriend/fiancée/wife all decide to go off on a trip to get away from them.  Where do they go? Some…

Horror Movie 18: The Lostboys

The Lostboys for me is one of the best vampire movies to come out of Hollywood.  It’s arguably the movie Twilight longs to be, but will never achieve.  It has a love story attached to it, it’s got gore and it’s got the Frog brothers! I’m sure we can forgive it for having Corey Haim…

Horror Movie 17: The Dead Zone

The Dead Zone may be my favourite Stephen King Horror movie it just has so much for me to like.  Christopher Walken plays a good part; it’s directed by David Cronenberg so how can it go wrong? I’d argue that it can’t. The Dead Zone is the story of Johnny Smith, just a small town…

Horror Movie 16: Flatliners

Flatliners for me is a strange movie.  It has a strong and original storyline (for the time), it has quite a strong cast and it is quite entertaining.  Problem I have is it can come across as quite cheesy at times and bordering on boring.  So, let’s get on with the review and I’ll examine…

Horror Movie 15: Fright Night

I have to admit, when it came to horror the 80’s rocked, there was just something about it, maybe some kind of buzz.  So many of the “modern” classics came from this time, it was like the genre was feeding off the need for horror.  Fright Night was one of these movies that just loved…

Horror Movie 14: Black Sheep

If you ever want a fun horror movie then look to New Zealand.  They’ve given us Bad Taste and Braindead (both from Peter Jackson) and now they’ve given us Black Sheep which is obviously influenced by those two movies. The storyline is pretty simple really, farmers have been genetically modifying sheep and now the sheep…
