The giallo film, popularised in Italy in the early 1970s, is remembered for a few key tropes – the black-gloved killer, the female heroine, and the gritty, stylish visuals. In spite of these superficial elements, the giallo is also characterised by its receptiveness to psychoanalysis, often exploring Freudian ideas of dreamwork, the unconscious and the …Read More

After the release of Alien in 1979, many studios tried to capitalise on the success of the franchise, adding more futuristic, science-fiction elements to their films. Creepozoids, released in 1987, was another of these ‘Alien-clones’, following a design and narrative structure that is painfully similar to Ridley Scott’s original. The film was criticised heavily for …Read More

Despite being made somewhat on the cheap, THE MUMMY’S HAND (1940) had been a big hit for the players then calling themselves the “New Universal”, making a sequel as inevitable as a tomb desecrater’s death by mouldy strangulation.

If you get a feeling of déjà vu watching the opening scenes of Within, it’s because you have indeed seen it before. Countless times.

Discussing films by the Italian master of shock Dario Argento, is always going to be difficult. Considered by many horror fans as a genius, criticising his work in any way has become something akin to blasphemy.

The lead villain in Better Watch Out (formerly Safe Neighborhood) is definitely on Santa’s naughty list, and that performance is just one of several crackerjack ones that help make this Christmas-themed Australian/American home invasion horror thriller a must-see.

Graham Skipper, who starred in last year’s Beyond the Gates, turns his hand to writing and directing for the new mind-bending science fiction/horror thriller Sequence Break.

Plan to leave all logic at the door when you see director Greg Zglinski’s Swiss/Austrian/Polish psychological horror chiller Animals (Tiere), and I mean that in the best possible way.
