Film Review: IBIZA UNDEAD (a.k.a. Zombie Spring Breakers) (2016)


IBIZA UNDEAD (a.k.a. Zombie Spring Breakers) ** U.K. 2016 Dir: Andy Edwards 95 mins


I had been warned off purchasing this film by many zombie fans so when the opportunity arose to review this I jumped at the chance to satisfy my curiosity (and fulfil my need to see every zombie movie at least once) without parting with any cash. And, well, if I was under 25, possessed crap taste in music and had a complete personality transplant then I'm sure this review would be a bit more positive but here goes......
3 kind of geeky loser types and one of their ex girlfriends go on a holiday to Ibiza, once there they go to their villa and indulge in the usual nightmare scenario of alcohol fuelled nightclubbing in the hope of getting laid by anyone or anything. The zombie apocalypse has already happened but apparently is under control and the reports confirm that the island is clear of infected. One of the nightclubs uses zombies shipped over from the UK in one of its shows though and after a slight mishap the island is getting over run by the undead.

TOP TEN MOVIES OF 2017 as chosen by Sarah Budd


Well, 2017 certainly seemed to fly by! And this brings about that time of year again where we contemplate our years viewing and attempt to compile a comprehensive list of our favourite movies. 2017 was a good year for movies, horror especially and, it would seem, a continuation of the sequel and/or remake trend which shows no sign of slowing down as yet. A few of these I really enjoyed and have made it onto my list. This year, although it went quickly, has again been incredibly unkind in regards to horror personalities who have passed away. I remember cursing 2016 for it depriving us of some greats but on reflection I think 2016 was preparing us for the carnage of the following year. I don't want to seem too over dramatic but the loss of George A Romero hit me quite hard . If that wasn't bad enough literally days later came the news of Linkin Park's Chester Bennington passing, and it didn't end there. Over the course of the year the horror community said farewell to way too many of its legends. Grasping at the only positive to come from this is that these great people created or acted in our favourite movies that we will always love, cherish and rewatch for decades to come. So without further ado let's crack on and see what movies left their mark on my memories in 2017.....

WILD EYE RELEASING TO RELEASE AWARD WINNING SCI-FI


Wild Eye Releasing kick off the new year by releasing the award winning sci-fi that is in the tradition of Blade Runner, and starring Jane Badler (V, V : The Final Battle, Mission : Impossible) and Mike Dupod (X-Men : Days of Future, Mission :Impossible – Ghost Protocol), that Nerdly call:

 ‘’a classic neo-noir that will make you gasp in wonder’’

ILLUMINATI AND THE WOLF IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING


Behind every good film there is a studio and behind every studio there is a very wealthy boss. But what if that studio boss was part of something bigger? What if the movie mogul served to the thirsty viewing public a hidden meaning, a hidden agenda, tactical promoting or an easy and cheap advertising campaign directed at the world of conspiracy theorists? Whatever the case, consider yourself well and truly ‘Aliced’ as I take you down the rabbit hole of conspiracy nuts, the Eye of Horus, Werecats and pyramids. Strap yourself in, it’s going to be a hypnotic ride!

Before the World Wide Web conspiracy theorists’ (Truth Seekers) tales never travelled further than their local tavern garden, but since the world was introduced to the Internet conspiracies have grown in reach, magnitude and colours. Gone are the days of stories of the government covering up UFO landings and alien abductions; today’s multi-layered conspiracies involve secret groups controlling the world via the media and Lizard People, aka ‘Reptilians’, running the world.

Film Review: THE 13TH FRIDAY (2017)


THE 13th FRIDAY * U.S.A. 2017 Dir: Justin Price 95 mins

When a group of friends enter a house possessed by a demon they end up being drawn into a deadly game that requires 13 sacrifices to appease the demon. When they fail in this task the demon turns its attention to the group itself. This is littered with hundreds of references to so many horror movies both the classics and the not so. With levitations straight out of The Exorcist, a puzzle box from Hellraiser, numerous (awful) jump scare attempts and a twisted/crawling Samara type figure from The Ring,  it has everything you've already seen in every recent horror movie with the added bonus of it being totally devoid of any originality or talent.

Film Review: MACHINE BABY (2014) (Short Film)


MACHINE BABY **** USA 2014 Dir: Sean Richard Budde 11 mins

Pursuing the current Miss California (Allie Long) en route to her hoped-for Miss America triumph, paparazzo Sean McGill is caught and captured by her peculiarly accented manager (Christian Gray) and learns some surprising secrets of her sustained success in the beauty world: “We’ll win it as long as she keeps fuelling…”

Film Review: THE EVIL IN US (2016)


THE EVIL IN US *** Canada 2016 Dir: Jason William Lee 91 mins

Surprisingly few reviewers picked up on the punning title of this unsubtle but subversive Canadian feature, which takes an oft-used EVIL DEAD-inspired set-up (college kids killing each other while under a malevolent influence at a rural retreat) and uses it as an excuse to commentate on our crumbling 21st century world- and particularly the rise of the right wing.
