Imagine if Let the Right One In was directed by Larry Clark.  That might not sound like the most pleasant of viewing experiences, but it’ll certainly pack a hard-hitting punch.  Michael O’Shea’s The Transfiguration takes the troubled teen urban drama and injects it with dose of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, and the results …Read More

I’ve always maintained that horror films and fairy tales have more in common than people think. Both function on an almost exclusively metaphorical level; they attempt to tap into the inherent fears and desires of an intended audience; and they are often morality tales that are conservative in nature, critical of sex before marriage and …Read More

The Witches (released internationally as The Devil’s Own in 1966) is an oft-forgotten entry from Hammer Films. It still has all the common tropes that we’d expect to see – a ruined church, a quintessentially English setting, and a melodramatically gothic script – but the film is closer to the folk-horror movement than the studio’s …Read More

I think it is fair to say that I’m having somewhat of a mixed reaction to these movies. Part 5, for example, is easily one of the worst movies I have ever watched – and I have seen Dawn of Justice. So it was with a lot of trepidation that I started to watch this …Read More

As the slasher film became increasingly popular throughout the 80s, many directors incorporated elements of the genre into their own work.
