Review: The Void

I’ve seen some $#!t… When a police officer stumbles across a drug addict by the road and takes him to the nearby hospital, he quickly finds himself and a¬†handful of others quickly under siege by mysterious hooded figures. But what’s worse is the strangers appear to be preventing them from escaping… as an inhuman terror…

Trilogy Review: Death Race (2008, 2010, 2013)

Death Race (2008) The remake of the David Carradine 1975 film is surprisingly star studded and overall a good piece of vehicular entertainment. In the heady future of 2012… Jason Statham plays Jensen Ames (“like the car”) an ex-con working in a steel factory who’s world is turned upside down when he is framed for…

Review: Only God Forgives

Well that was a thing that I watched with my eyeballs. From what I can gather: an American man running a martial arts ring in Thailand¬†is forced by his psychotic mother to seek revenge on the kill-crazy police officer that had his older brother killed. Director Nicolas Winding Refn also made the incredible Drive, also…

Review: Hardcore Henry

An ultra-violent action film shot entirely from a first person perspective, Hardcore Henry blurs the line between video game and movie as far as possible. What did I just witness?? My eyes actually hurt after that. Henry wakes within a high tech laboratory were his wife reassembles him with a bionic arm and leg, only…

Trio Review: The Punisher

Surprise Trio Review! I figured with Marvel’s Netflix show Daredevil returning to us in March, with the added bonus of The Punisher character making an appearance, I would review all of the Punisher films! Yes, all. Did you know there’s been three of these things? In 1989 there was a Punisher film made by an…

Remake Rumble Review: Oldboy

Remake Rumble…? More like Remake Execution. So, against my better judgment I’ve decided to do this particular Remake Rumble! I guess it wouldn’t leave my mind until I had seen it through. Read, and feel the frustration! Oldboy (2003) The definition of a revenge tale, beautifully savage and cynically dark in humour, Oldboy is one…

Review: Maniac

Deeply disturbing, for a film I just dived into blindly I was not prepared for it (especially when I wasn’t feeling well!) Elijah Wood plays a serial killer who stalks and targets young women and after stabbing them to death, he scalps them and staples their hair onto mannequins so they can live with him….

Review: You’re Next

Despite all the atypical slasher cliches, You’re Next does have some appeal. Even if it is a long slew of endless murder. When wealthy parents invite their children and partners to their countryside house, they are suddenly surrounded by masked murderers who are intent to hunt down and kill every one of them. However, one…

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: The Machine Girl

If I were to say that The Machine Girl is one of the stupidest, worst films I’ve seen in a while, would you actually accept my argument? After all, I just willingly watched a film about a Japanese school girl with a machine gun for an arm, what did I expect?? So, school children born…
