Crawl

It’s not the crawling part you have to worry about, it’s the biting and tearing you really must look out for. If you ever find yourself transported into the world of Crawl that is. I guess Crawl is a double reference to the fact that the humans do a bunch of crawling around too… But they do swimming and running and hopping at one point. When one of them gets bitten on the leg. So I gue...

Annabelle Comes Home

Writer Gary Dauberman has certainly got some impressive writing credits under his belt. Having penned the screenplay for both It (2017) and the eagerly anticipated It Chapter Two along with all the previous Annabelle films in The Conjuring universe, means he certainly has the experience and, to an extent, proven track record to make a good movie. Annabelle Comes Home is the screenwriter’s fi...

Child’s Play

As the Pretty Much Geeks’ unofficial horror geek, I was delighted to go along to an advanced screening of Child’s Play – a sort of reboot for the modern era of the 80’s black comedic classic (which admittedly I don’t think I had even seen in its entirety). This film had all the required ingredients for a horrifically funny film – Aubrey Plaza, a doll that kills people...

Pet Sematary

Just when you thought you couldn’t stand to watch another cat video… Just when you had given up on the hope of seeing anything new and fresh when it comes to your favourite feline friend… along comes Pet Sematary! There was only one naughty little furry in the movie but trust me, that’s all you’ll need in this classic retelling of the novel by Steven King. And it is a classic horror st...

Us

In 2017, writer/director Jordan Peele blew audiences away with his cleverly written social commentary horror movie, Get Out. I was late to the viewing party on this one and although I loved it I had sadly gotten caught up in the hype around it so it was never going to exceed my ridiculous expectations. However, Peele certainly made it clear that he is one of the most exciting new voices in modern ...

Mandy

What people say about Mandy : “Mandy is F***ing nuts “Finally a good Nicholas Cage movie “The most insane Nic Cage movie ever made What I say about Mandy : “What? Look, I didn’t like Mandy okay. Yes, I know that heaps of film buffs, critics, reviewers and 2018 Top Ten Youtube lists liked it. Yes, I was super excited about watching it. Yes, it is artistic and interesting in parts and it’s the kind ...

The Amityville Murders

The Amityville Murders is one of the many horror movies that claim to be “based on a true story”, a comment that is usually a marketing ploy to make the story seem more frightening and draw audiences into watching it. Films like The Conjuring, Texas Chainsaw etc also claim to be based on true events but for someone like me who is grounded quite firmly in reality when it comes to the supernatural I...

The Midnight Man

The horror genre has become increasingly popular over the last ten years to the point where, as horror aficionados, there is always something new to watch. My passion for horror films is huge and I am one of those viewers who enjoys such a myriad of styles within the genre. From high budget, well scripted mainstream horrors right through to indie productions and cheap jumpscare laden b-graders. I ...

It (2017)

Director Andrés Muschietti had a challenging task in reimagining It, originally an iconic miniseries based on the novel by legend of horror Stephen King. For a modern audience, the idea of a horror movie with a clown as the main antagonist seems destined to flop. It would be very easy to fall into the realm of cheesy absurdity and have the audience in fits of giggles rather than frozen in fear. Fo...

Annabelle: Creation

Ooh if you like jump scares, then watch out! Oh… you hate jump scares? Yeah, you’d better not watch it then. I’m talking about the new movie, Annabelle: Creation. This is the prequel to Annabelle (2014). It tells the story of how evil gets attached to the doll in the first place. It’s a classic horror tale of a family who loses their child in a tragic accident and who go to...

Review: Detention

I’m someone who likes to trick myself into thinking I can handle, even enjoy, the horror genre. So when the opportunity to review Detention popped up I was all like ‘pfft yea of course I can handle it LOL’. After all, it’s basically a point and click side-scrolling game  with 0% combat and I played a million of those in the 90s.  I think I managed about ten minutes on my ow...

Ouija: Origin of Evil

A widowed mother struggling to make ends meet with her fraudulent business as a spiritual medium, introduces a Ouija board into her act in the hopes of boosting her clientele. Instead, she unwittingly invites an evil spirit that terrorises her family and possesses her young daughter. Set in the 1960s, it sounds like a promising premise for a chilling, old school horror movie. Unfortunately Ouija: ...
