Film Review: THE EYES OF MY MOTHER (2016)


THE EYES OF MY MOTHER **** USA 2016 Dir: Nicolas Pesce. 77 mins 

Divided into three chapters (Mother, Father and Family), this is a distinctive, disturbing insight into a sheltered, lonely existence from debut feature writer-director Nicolas Pesce, a graduate from the worlds of animation and music video. Played remarkably well at different stages by Kika Magalhaes and Olivia Bond, Francisca is the daughter of a brilliant Portugese surgeon whose existence takes a defining turn when a deranged, gun-toting stranger shows up at their remote farmhouse.

HORROR COMEDY 'GARDEN PARTY MASSACRE' RELEASES TEASER TRAILER























Horror meets comedy in award winning Gregory Blair’s new film GARDEN PARTY MASSACRE, which is currently finishing up post production via Pix/See Productions.

In a 180-degree tone shift from Blair’s previous film (the moody, brooding psych-thriller DEADLY REVISIONS), GARDEN PARTY MASSACRE is a fast-paced romp where both ketchup and blood flow freely.  Based on his FANtastic Horror Film Festival winning script, writer/director Gregory Blair helms the film which tells the tale of a friendly backyard gathering that goes awry when an unexpected guest shows up.  With a pickaxe.  And an attitude!  Things go south from there as the guests try to survive.

Film Review: MY LITTLE SISTER (2016)


MY LITTLE SISTER ** Italy 2016 Dir: Maurizio del Piccolo, Roberto del Piccolo 80 mins

Italian horror has risen again like something out of a Lucio Fulci movie, with that we get the really good and the barely watchable movies. Unfortunately MY LITTLE SISTER falls into the latter category despite its best efforts to stay above ground. The plot sees a couple go for a walk in the woods to meet up with their friends on a camping trip. On arriving to the camp their friends are no where to be seen, but Ben a creepy guy who wanders the woods with an axe tells them to leave before our title character 'little sister' gets them.

Film Review: THE BEASTER BUNNY (a.k.a. Beaster Day: Here Comes Peter Cottonhell) (2014)


THE BEASTER BUNNY (a.k.a. Beaster Day: Here Comes Peter Cottonhell) *** U.S.A. 2014 Dir: Snygg Brothers 80 mins

You now have a reason to fear Easter as THE BEASTER BUNNY is here. A 50 foot man-eating Easter bunny is on the loose in a rural town in America leaving half devoured corpses of buxom women in its path. The greedy cash obsessed hippy mayor believes it to be some kind of uprising from the calm polite Amish community, fed up of being pushed around they have set their eyes on a terrorist attack on the town.

Film Review: JACK HUNTER'S PARANOIA TAPES (a.k.a. The Paranoia Tapes) (2016)


JACK HUNTER’S PARANOIA TAPES * (a.k.a. The Paranoia Tapes) Dir: Douglas Farra, Chad Freeman, Jesse Gilbert, Amy Hesketh, Larry Rosen Jack Hunter. USA 2016 91 mins

PARANOIA TAPES starts like an amateurish found-footage variation on retro-grot like TRACES OF DEATH, with a godawful narrator (think Siri after a weekend bender) yammering over multi-media footage of faked depravities. Profound statements include “Video of the kind of actions that serial killers do to their victims can be very hard to watch” and “Just about everything in this video is creepy, including how the boy talks” (note: “the boy” has a stutter).

Film Review: SHARKENSTEIN (2016)


SHARKENSTEIN ** U.S.A. 2016 Dir: Mark Polonia 73 mins

SHARKENSTEIN begins with an opening from World War 2 where a pair of scientists are trying to make sharks into killing machines that will help win the war. The Third Reich learn of this experiment and aim to take control and use said creatures for their own aims. 60 years later in a small harbour town, bodies are washing up on the beach leaving the police scratching their heads as to what is the cause of the deaths.

Film Review: SAVAGELAND (2015)


SAVAGELAND *** USA 2015 Dir: Phil Guidry, Simon Herbert, David Whelan. 80 mins

In a found footage market overcrowded with paranormal flicks and woodsy sub-Bigfoot creature features, this is an admirable attempt at a pseudo “true” crime documentary. An illegal Latino immigrant, found with 15 different types of blood on his person, is convicted of a mass murder that virtually wipes out a tiny town on the Arizona-Mexico border.

Film Review: THE CHAMBER (2016)


THE CHAMBER **** U.K. 2016 Dir: Ben Parker. 88 mins

An intense feature debut from Ben Parker, in which veteran Captain Johannes Kuhnke leads his ageing submarine “The Aurora” on a secretive retrieval mission at the bottom of the Yellow Sea. As the nature of their mission becomes clear, a misguided detonation damages the sub, spins it upside down, trapping the crew in a grim situation where rescue will be 36 hours at best, communications are down and their top ship may well have already been boarded by hostile North Koreans.
