Though touted as a dark horror comedy, I found Two Pigeons neither funny nor scary. It is instead an overly long, repetitive trudge that relies on gross-out gags to try and tell its tale of revenge. Dominic Bridges directs a joyless affair that takes a decent idea but goes nowhere with it. Hussein (Mim Shaikh) …Read More

Argentinian horror anthology Terror 5 is an interesting exercise in sociopolitical horror, but viewers (including yours truly) not up to speed on the country’s political climate and history may find that the anthology doesn’t offer many other new ideas. Said to be based on urban legends from that country, the movie does present a unique …Read More

Synopsis: In Francesca, two detectives must try to solve a 15-year old case of a missing girl to help catch a serial killer.

S&M: LES SADIQUES is über-talented indie filmmaker Alex Bakshaev’s follow-up to his 2015 offering THE DEVIL OF KREUZBERG. Where in that movie there were stylistic hints to his devotion to legendary Spanish trash-auteur Jess Franco, this latest opus could be said to be an out-and-out love letter, a case strengthened by the fact that it’s …Read More

As a sub-genre, body horror has often been used to explore adolescent anxieties about puberty, examining newly-awakened fears and desires that emerge as a person’s body begins to change. With this comes a terror of deformity and otherness, a loss of what was once familiar, as well as a certain apprehension associated with a person’s …Read More

Synopsis: When troubled teen Milo, who has a fascination with vampire lore, meets the equally alienated Sophie, the two form a bond that begins to blur Milo’s fantasy into reality.

Inspired by nineteenth century gothic literature, Bava’s Black Sunday (La Maschera del Demonio) was released to modest acclaim in 1960. Vampires, with all their unearthly glamour, seem like a perfect fit for Italian horror, though Bava’s directorial debut owes more to the Universal monster movies of the 1930s. Although the film suffered from a huge …Read More

Directed by Maurizio del Iccolo and Roberto del Piccolo, My Little Sister is a micro-budget horror film about a young couple who find themselves at the mercy of a murderous villain who loves to wear the faces of his victims.

It is rare to find enjoyment in a horror sequel, because very few are able to maintain the impact of the first and develop the story in a way that is refreshing, interesting and worthwhile. However, Stake Land II is a more mellow, but equally as brutal sequel that impressively expands on the story began …Read More

Based on a short story by Clive Barker, The Midnight Meat Train was released in 2008 before being rushed to DVD, and honestly, it isn’t hard to see why. The film suffers from many trends that now seem dated within the genre, and relies on excessive gore and jump scares to create tension. I have …Read More

The true story of Ed Gein – the American serial killer and body snatcher – has inspired many famous horror films, including Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and House of 1000 Corpses.

Science-fiction thriller Atomica looks rather good, with impressive set designs of a futuristic nuclear power plant and CGI spacecraft. It lacks, however, in the important areas of story, characters, and performances. Abby Dixon (Sarah Habel) is a young, gung-ho, by-the-numbers safety inspector for a corporation that has found a way to convert leaked radiation to …Read More
