Resident Evil Degeneration generates enough faithful zombie action to justify its residency. After the first few live action instalments from Anderson's questionable series, Capcom took it upon themselves to produce a true representation of their... Read the full review »

Quarantine 2 is a repeat of its predecessor, but this time it's terminal. In terms of "straight-to-video" sequels, this is actually not bad. Sure it's unoriginal, unimaginative, uninteresting and un-everything. However the effective use of strong... Read the full review »

Scream (1996)

Scream (1996)

7 / 10
Scream deconstructs the slasher genre to make a screamingly thrilling film. Specific types of film will most likely follow a formula, a structure that forms the basis of its narrative. The slasher genre is the most procedural of them all. Expendab... Read the full review »

Lights Out will increase your electricity bill substantially. David Sandberg's short, that inspired the feature film of the same title, is effective because of one element. It turns a common fear into a nightmarish experience. Being frightened of... Read the full review »

After Earth feels more like an afterthought. After the travesty that was 'The Last Airbender', Shyamalan had something to prove. Could he ever make a decent film again? His answer was After Earth, well...Will Smith's Scientology brainwashing abili... Read the full review »

Pet (2016)

Pet (2016)

4 / 10
Pet needed to restrain its implausibilities with both a leash and a cage. Subversive thrillers that purposefully twist genre tropes are always welcome. Those that attempt to push boundaries, testing the limitations of the viewer's mind. Pet does j... Read the full review »

Apollo 18 is thinner than the Moon's atmosphere. Y'know, the "found footage" sub-genre works well for specific environments. Supernatural low-budget hits like 'Paranomal Activity' and 'Grave Encounters' are suitable (I guess...) and provide a few... Read the full review »

First Man lifts off as the perfect biographical leap for mankind. We've seen plenty of space exploration films, particularly those that attempt to traverse the Moon. 'Apollo 13' and 'Hidden Figures' to name a couple, where both the pressured astro... Read the full review »

Halloween remains sharper and creepier than an expired jack-o-lantern. A film that hosts the most formidably foreboding group of followers since the original 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'. Many have claimed this to be the perfect slasher. Whilst I dis... Read the full review »

The Cat With Hands went from tame to bizarre quicker than a cat's purr. Why is this not a full feature length film? This is the perfect example to illustrate my adoration for short films. There are no boundaries. One's imagination can be conveyed... Read the full review »

Venom (2018)

Venom (2018)

3 / 10
Venom is just a poisonous outdated cash grab. Oh dear. Superhero fatigue really is hitting hard this year. Sony is attempting every possibility just to keep the rights of a superhero intellectual property that is "in association with Marvel". Tryi... Read the full review »

Can't find a film you are looking for?

@Chris If you could also do it for 'The Cat With Hands' that would be great. Thanks. View the full reply »

The Resident has more thrills in a bathtub than with its predictable clichés. That poor bathtub, or should I say "damn I'm jealous...". Swank pleasures herself in murky water and then Morgan comes along and just whips his ding-a-ling out, gives i... Read the full review »

The Purge Anarchy steps outside onto city streets and lets chaos ensue. Forget about its predecessor which was a forgettable home invasion thriller. This sequel is a perfect example in realising a concept. "Purging" is an intriguing idea, one that... Read the full review »

A Star Is Born has given birth to two incredibly multi-talented stars. A universal story that transcends time, so much so that this is the third remake since the 1937 original (excluding Bollywood's 'Aashiqui 2'). Comparisons could be made between... Read the full review »

The Haunting may have spooked the visual effects department. "The special effects will leave you terrified". Umm yeah, it sure did! That budget was off the chain! $80,000,000!? Granted they've aged beautifully like a fine ghostly wine and actually... Read the full review »
