Review: Hellboy (2019)

Wow, this was a train wreck. A special supernatural investigations and operations unit heed the return of The Blood Queen, a sorceress from the times of King Arthur, bringing the end of the world with her. The only one who can possibly stop her, the unit’s demonic investigator simply named Hellboy. Straight off the bat,…

Review: Green Room

Green Room is one of those rare horrors that does one thing, but does it very well. It is an Eli Roth film, only good. A struggling punk rock band need some gigs and fast. Unfortunately they are directed to a concert at a place ran by Neo-Nazis, and quickly find themselves in a hostage…

Review: Slither

(Originally published October 2011) From the director who would later go on to make Super (edit: and Guardians of the Galaxy) comes a quirky little gore movie that surprised me with its likability! Although most of that likability may come from Nathan Fillion (from the cult TV show Firefly) in the lead role. In a…

Review: Ichi the Killer

(Originally published October 2011) Before Saw, there was Ichi the Killer; a Japanese film based on the manga and anime, stretched the boundaries of what cinema could get away with. Directed by Audition‘s Takashi Miike and taking place in Japan’s gangland society, the story follows two unique but equally sadistic individuals. One is a pain-relishing…

Review: 300 – Rise of an Empire

It’s time to trim your beards, wear eyeliner, shave off your chest hair and bludgeon and stab people to death in slow motion! With 300: Rise of an Empire, I’ve also reviewed the 2007 Zack Snyder film. 300: Rise of an Empire Here’s a good example of when a director puts his name only to…

Trilogy Review: RoboCop

Dead or alive, you’re coming with me. I never really watched RoboCop when I was younger, I was more on the Terminator side of things back then, but I had the big action figure, it was awesome. I even had the first film’s poster on my wall. Now there is a remake coming out… sadly….

Review: Hansel and Gretel – Witch Hunters

To be honest, there really isn’t that much to say about it, except that I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected! Following the events of the classic fairytale of Hansel and Gretel who survive their encounter with a witch inside a gingerbread house, we see the two siblings grown up, decked out in…

Review: Evil Dead

An intensely visceral, bloody and not entirely predictable remake of the 1981 horror classic. As part of a drug rehabilitation plan, David and his three friends take his sister Mia to an old family cabin secluded in the woods. But when they find the cabin to now be the site of witchcraft, and find a…

Review: Repo Men

So I’ve spent months tracking down this film, this gory near-future thriller, yet Repo Men doesn’t quite do as much as it could have. Jude Law and Forest Whitaker are two ex-soldier buddies working for The Union as “Repo Men”. The Union is a corrupt government repossession organization, but instead of just housing repossession and…
