LOVE ME (2012)
Love Me Reviewed: 27 March 2015
 
 

This thriller from the director of no less than 3 Hellraiser sequels (Rick Bota) starts out well enough but quickly becomes tiresome.

DELIVER US FROM EVIL (2014)
Deliver us from Evil Reviewed: 27 March 2015
 
 

Eric Bana plays Sgt. Ralph Sarchie, a South Bronx cop on the strangest case of his career, one that will change the cynical, lapsed Catholic forever. Several incidents of a bizarre nature (one being a dangerous situation involving a crazy woman, a baby, and the local zoo) seem somehow linked to returned Iraq war soldiers. Eventually Sarchie (who has almost kind of a sixth sense/clairvoyant ability that helps his police work) and his partner Bulter (Joel McHale) are approached by an unorthodox Catholic priest (Edgar Ramirez) who believes that demonic possession is at the heart of all these strange goings on. Olivia Munn plays Sarchie's wife, whilst Sean Harris plays one of the disturbed war veterans.

MISOGYNIST (2013)
Misogynist Reviewed: 18 March 2015
 
 

For those of you who have shied away from the chaos surrounding the much over-hyped sexual thriller 'Fifty Shades of Grey' may want to try something a little more edgy and satisfying. Enter writer/director Michael Matteo Rossi with his new thriller ‘Misogynist’. Actor Jon Briddell stars as Trevor, a sociopath who engages with young men in secret underground seminars that teach them how to gain control of a women’s psyche and get whatever he desires.

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE MARKED ONES (2013)
Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones Reviewed: 27 February 2015
 
 

A couple of Latino teens in California (Andrew Jacobs and Jorge Diaz) are goofing around with a video camera by sneaking it into the air vent to spy on a neighbour. They see the rather shapely woman completely naked and engaging in…hell, they don’t even really know, but it looks bizarre. When something drastic happens to the neighbour, the boys sneak into her apartment and look around, finding all kinds of crazy occult stuff. The next morning, Jacobs wakes up with some kind of mark on his arm. And it’s not long before his behaviour starts to change…not to mention he seems to have the ability to levitate, a bit like the characters in “Chronicle”. Whatever is going on with Jacobs, it’s up to Diaz and their female friend Gabrielle Walsh to find out and save him.

GINGER SNAPS (2000)
Ginger Snaps Reviewed: 27 February 2015
 
 

Centring on two macabre, suicide-obsessed teenage sisters who are way too old to have never menstruated; Bold and sexual Ginger (Katharine Isabelle) and mousy Brigitte (Emily Perkins), who are savagely set upon by a wolf one night. Brigitte is unharmed, but Ginger gets bitten. But this appears to have been no ordinary wolf, as Ginger’s wounds seem to heal rapidly, and she starts getting hairy…and even growing a tail! And then there’s the craving for human flesh. Teenage angst with a side order of shape-shifting and flesh-eating are today’s specials it seems. Mimi Rogers is well-cast as the girls’ useless and entirely clueless mother.

GINGER SNAPS II: UNLEASHED (2004)
Ginger Snaps II: Unleashed Reviewed: 27 February 2015
 
 

After destroying her werewolf sister Ginger (Katharine Isabelle) at the end of the first film, Brigitte (Emily Perkins) is on the run and frankly wigging out. She’s taking drugs (or Wolf’s bane) to attempt to stop or slow down the transformation process now that she too is destined to become a creature of the night (Or is that vampires?). Meanwhile, there’s another werewolf seemingly stalking her with presumably sinister wolf-on-wolf sexy time intentions. Unfortunately, after an attack, Brigitte is caught and put inside a drug rehab facility, labelled a desperate junkie. This means no Wolf’s bane, and a very, very hungry and shape-shifting Brigitte, as facility director Janet Kidder (Margot’s incredibly sexy niece) is clueless to what is really going on here. Meanwhile, the werewolf tracking Brigitte down appears to be rapidly heading towards her. Brigitte is befriended by a chatty, comic book geek called Ghost (Tatiana Maslany), who may be able to help her escape the facility. Brendan Fletcher turns up briefly as a dorky library worker, just in case you were in any doubt that this is Canadian.

GINGER SNAPS BACK (2004)
Ginger Snaps Back Reviewed: 27 February 2015
 
 

Set in snowy Canada in the 1800s, the film concerns sisters Ginger (Katharine Isabelle) and Brigitte (Emily Perkins) drifting through the wilderness. After encountering a weird old Indian woman who spouts dire warnings, Brigitte gets caught in a bear trap. Thankfully, an Indian hunter (Nathaniel Arcand) turns up to help, and leads them Fort Bailey, a trading post. But the men (Brendan Fletcher and surly J.R. Bourne among them) there are deeply fearful of outsiders, with only captain Tom McManus insisting they stay. Unfortunately, Fort Bailey seems to be targeted by werewolves…and Ginger gets bitten by one. And so it begins.

IT FOLLOWS (2014)
It Follows Reviewed: 16 January 2015
 
 

Oh you silly teenagers. Lazing around watching TV, whiling the hours away in your swimming pools and chilling out with your friends is fine. But surely you know by now that having sex is going to have life-changing repercussions that could end up with you in a twisted, mangled and decidedly dead heap on a beach? Surely you've seen "Scream", "Halloween" and the like, films in which ironically it's after you have sex that you really get fucked.

THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU (1977)
The Island of Dr. Moreau Reviewed: 15 January 2015
 
 

When initially released in 1977 Don Taylor’s version of H. G. Wells’ classic novel The Island Of Dr. Moreau was very much a morality tale of the times. Amidst a backdrop of growing intolerance for medical experiments on animals appeared a film wholeheartedly dealing with that very topic. The very experiments the titular doctor was carrying out seemed to be entirely relatable to audiences’ changing opinion but now, when such things are so abhorrently unacceptable, this is a film that suddenly feels very dated. To dismiss it however would be to ignore a strikingly interesting film.

THE PYRAMID (2014)
The Pyramid Reviewed: 06 January 2015
 
 

Egyptology has long fascinated the British – Shakespeare laid out its opulence in some of his most famous scenes, centuries later the country became a British colony for 74 years, British explorer Howard Carter opened Tutankhamen’s tomb and Britain’s eyes to the possibility of ancient death-dealing curses in 1922, and some of the greatest exhibits of the British Museum are much-loved treasures of the Nile. And then, to crown our national obsession, we sent our finest acting export to explore Egypt’s great mysteries on film – Jay from “The Inbetweeners”.

KISS OF THE DAMNED (2012)
Kiss of the Damned Reviewed: 23 December 2014
 
 

Screenwriter Milo Ventimiglia meets sexy Josephine de la Baume at a video store (!) and before you know it, they're back at her place getting it on…until she abruptly puts a stop to it. Eventually she reveals that she is a vampire, and this somehow doesn't turn him off. In fact, when she handcuffs herself during sex, he ends up uncuffing her, and quick as you like, she bites him, making him another of the undead. They commit themselves to one another and move in together. And then de la Baume's slutty sister Roxane Mesquida turns up and promptly moves in. Mesquida, however, is reckless and careless in her feeding habits (unlike her sister, she feeds exclusively on humans), which starts to cause problems not just for our happy couple, but the high-brow vampire society our characters mingle with, especially Broadway actress Xenia (Anna Mouglalis), who refuses to feast on human blood, preferring a synthetic substitute. Michael Rapaport plays Ventimiglia's coked-up agent.

What We Do in the Shadows Reviewed: 08 December 2014
 
 

Have you ever wondered how vampires get ready for a big night on the town when they can’t see themselves in the mirror? How they settle fights when they can morph into bats and flee the scene? How they keep in touch with their old familiars overseas? And how they decide exactly who does the cleaning? If you have then wonder no more – the absolutely divine horror mockumentary from Kiwi master-mirth-makers Taika Waititi (“Boy”) and Jemaine Clement (“Flight of the Conchords”) will tell you all you ever wanted to know, and more besides.

LONG WEEKEND (1978)
Long Weekend Reviewed: 04 December 2014
 
 

A bickering married couple (John Hargreaves and Briony Behets) go on a camping holiday at a remote beach. As all of their grievances with one another are aired, the environment around them seems to both confuse and increasingly frighten them. Since Hargreaves is the type of guy to freely litter and senselessly chop down trees for the hell of it, perhaps nature is about to bite them back. Killing that poor dugong probably wasn’t a smart idea, Mr. Hargreaves.

A lesbian love session is followed by a knock at the door and a psycho killer carving one of the girls up. Next we cut to a different group of characters, typical family on vacation in Mexico.

Their parents (who had been enjoying some alone time ifyouknowwhatimean) call the cops, and wait anxiously in their hotel room.having a giant row, blaming each other for the day's events. The next morning the kids turn up, seemingly unharmed. Oopsy.
