A Quiet Place Part II

Oh boy here we go, man I’ve been waiting for this movie for so long. One of the longest delayed movies because of the that nasty C word. The C-Virus. Seriously that beer needs to change its name because I hate that word. But as the tide changes, the releases of all these movies that have been held uphas fin...

Wrong Turn

The year is 2003. I am 16 years old. Eliza Dushku is at the height of her popularity and trashy horrors about red-neck, inbred hillbillies are making a resurgence in the new millennium with plenty of gore and very few teeth. The original Wrong Turn was a fairly predictable but enjoyable brainless horror fea...

Shadow in the Cloud

My mum asked me if I wanted to see Shadow in the Cloud with her. “I don’t think Dad would be interested.” At the time, I had just lost my fifth match of competitive Overwatch in a row, and I thought the distraction would be nice. So I said, “Sure.” “Have you seen the trailer?” she asked. “No,” I replied, “b...

Freaky *spoiler free* Review

It’s been way too long since I’ve sat down to write a review. I genuinely am struggling to remember where to start. I think I usually start with some personal little tidbit about my prior knowledge of the film or what I had for breakfast that day, so let’s start there. On Wednesday the 11t...

Come to Daddy

Black comedy is a genre that Kiwis have been successfully pulling off since the early years of Peter Jackson. There is always something about the style of humour the genre lends itself to that goes hand-in-hand with the dryness of New Zealand wit. The NZ Film Commission made a wise decision in supporting fi...

Could do without

The Grudge

For the longest time there has been only one truly scary way to breath in and The Grudge is the movie that taught us. It is also known that the coolest thing to say is the original, Ju-on: The Grudge is the bestest of them all, but I actually found the American version scarier. Even with Sarah Michelle Gell...

Doctor Sleep

While everyone was eagerly awaiting the arrival of It: Chapter Two (an overly long, only slightly above average sequel), I was getting myself hyped up for writer/director Mike Flanagan’s sequel to The Shining – Dr Sleep. The Haunting of Hill House is one of my favourite shows of all time and Flanagan ...

Zombieland: Double Tap

I re-watched Zombieland the night before going to see Double Tap to remember why I loved it so much when I first saw it and get myself hyped for the sequel. I can tell you I loved it just as much during the re-watch! The charm of Zombieland, for me, was the teaming up of 4 unlikely companions and the narrat...

Waste of time

The Night Eats the World

Catchy title, I like the graphic on the front, ohh two little award stamps! I’ve judged this movie to be a good one from its cover alone! That’s how good I am at this. Someone spends the time on the graphics and fonts and layout its gotta be good. It’s a zombe movie! Lock it in. Set in a block of flats in P...

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

I haven’t been as blown away by the horror entries in 2019 as I would have like to have been. The year started strong with Jordan Peele’s exceptional follow-up to Get Out. Us really set the bar. Then things sort of fizzled out with terrible entries like Annabelle Comes Home and then the disappointment...

Good

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 swim...

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, p...
