Review: Aquaman

What’s this? DC have had two movies in a row that weren’t terrible? Maybe they can salvage something after all… Arthur Curry, son of a lighthouse keeper and an Atlantian Queen from the ocean depths, has to come to terms with his heritage when his brother attempts to seize control of the aquatic armies and…

Review: The Nun

Ever felt like you needed an origin story for one of three random monsters in that stupid horror movie from 2015? Me neither. Before the events of The Conjuring 2, the demon Valek tormented a chapel in Romania. When one of the nuns at the chapel kills herself, a priest and a young girl go…

Review: Lights Out

A reasonably “by the numbers” horror experience with some script and performance problems, but otherwise a decent flick with a fantastic gimmick.

Review: The Conjuring 2

I can’t help but feel a little disappointed by James Wan’s sequel; it has a little too much Insidious injected into it… Based off a true case performed by the Warrens, a husband and wife team of investigators helping the Church uncover demonic activity, the pairing travel to north London to help a family terrorised by…

Review: The Conjuring

So I guess I should eat my words a little bit… well done James Wan, you managed to prove you can direct some scares after all! When writing the synopsis for horror films, it always sounds the same: When a family move into a new house in the countryside they find themselves noticing an increasing…

Review: Insidious – Chapter 2

Oh James Wan… no matter how hard you try you still aren’t convincing any scares out of me. Following the events of the first film, Chapter 2 follows the Lambert family as they attempt to leave the horrors behind by moving into father Josh Lambert’s old home. But when they do it is apparent something…

Review: Insidious

Insidious, more like Insipid. Wow, I’m reminded straight away how October’s horrorfest can really bring out the worst in movies. Nothing is quite as bad as a horror film without any scares! Insidious tries some new concepts and new imagery in a tired genre, but it collapses like a deflating balloon; comical and silly. We…
