Film Review: BAD APPLES (2018)


BAD APPLES ** USA 2018 Dir: Brian Coyne 84 mins

After an unpleasant prologue in which a heavily pregnant woman is repeatedly stabbed by a home-invader, this Halloween-set variant on THE STRANGERS centres around an L.A. couple (Brea Grant, Graham Skipper). They move into a Rockwellian neighbourhood and are immediately warned by an eccentric neighbour of the local ‘Bad Apple’ – a persecuted sex offender. Their biggest problem, however, turns out to be a couple of creepy strangers in Halloween masks who take sadistic pleasure in staging fatal trick or treat visits around town.

2017: THE YEAR IN HORROR by Steven West


If you had a particularly potent sneeze, or just blink an awful lot, then congratulations are in order: you probably missed 2017. A terrifying, putrid shit-fest created especially for those who didn’t think 2016 was sufficiently depressing. Twelve months best summarised by the recurring lament of “Now what the fuck has happened?” If you grew up in the 1980’s eternally traumatised via exposure to the BBC’s THREADS but took some comfort in the fact that it didn’t seem likely to ever become a reality, 2017 delightfully shat on the comfort blanket and presented the most unstable and demented leader in the world threatening Nuclear War on a regular basis. Simultaneously, his slightly less frightening equivalent in North Korea did the same thing.

Film Review: THE LAST WITCH (2015)


THE LAST WITCH * Spain 2015 Dir: Carlos Almon Munoz. 94 mins

The one and only entertaining moment of THE LAST WITCH arrives in the first few seconds: an opening credit boasting the legend “An Original Idea of Carlos Almon Munoz”. This “original idea” turns out to be the groan-inducing story of three friends who, desperate to be famous video bloggers, set out to locate the home of an infamous witch who confessed to terrible crimes 400 years ago in Tarrasa, Spain before vanishing without a trace.

Film Review: I DARED YOU! TRUTH OR DARE PART 5 (2018)


I DARED YOU! TRUTH OR DARE PART 5 *** U.S.A. 2018 Dir: Tim Ritter, Scott Tepperman 88 mins

I shall state right from the beginning that I have never seen the first four movies in this franchise, so this review is solely based on this movie and what knowledge I have of the previous movies. Right thats the disclaimer out of the way onto the movie review. Tim Ritter returns to the series he started all the way back in 1986 with the first film TRUTH OR DARE?: A CRITICAL MADNESS, but this time he is joined by Scott Tepperman on directorial duties too. Both appear in the movie as well as actors but Tepperman has the starring role as Daxton Hackman a mental patient who is out to get revenge on Detective Dan Hess.

Film Review: SACRILEGE (2017)


SACRILEGE ** U.S.A. 2017 Dir: Paul Catalanotto 96 mins

Possession horror movies can be really good or really bad, SACRILEGE fits somewhere in the middle of all that. The film sees college student Jessica out to buy her friend a gift but strapped for cash and unsure what to buy she ends up at a yard sale. Looking for all the good son display she eventually decides to buy a music box for $5, a bargain some may say. When she gives it to her friend things take a turn for the worse, as it feeds off her life and eventually she kills herself.

Book Review: IT CAME FROM THE VIDEO AISLE! by Dave Jay, S. Wilson & Torsten Dewi


Book Review: IT CAME FROM THE VIDEO AISLE! by Dave Jay, S. Wilson & Torsten Dewi

If you have read Empire Of The 'B's then you will know what to expect from this new book focusing on Charles Band's Full Moon Entertainment Studio. The home to some of the most wackiest, bizarre and sometimes unlikely films to ever be made. Mostly known for its ongoing franchise PUPPET MASTER, Charles Band's studio has had its fair share of ups and downs and this is an in-depth look at both.

Film Review: NIGHTMARE BEACH (a.k.a. Welcome To Spring Break) (1989)


NIGHTMARE BEACH (a.k.a. Welcome To Spring Break) *** Italy 1989 Dir: Umberto Lenzi. 90 mins

Michael Parks is typically engaging as a hard-drinking Florida doctor in Lenzi’s Fort Laudedale-shot slasher, referring accurately to Spring Break as “the annual migration of the idiot”. It’s a standard 80’s American dead teenager movie at heart, though his character – combined with other portrayals of sleazy authority figures and vacuous hot girls / horny guys – suggest a satirical attitude toward American culture from the Italian filmmaker.

L.A. based wannabe-documentarians are “in between projects” when they receive a postcard from an estranged pal, suggesting that the off-grid community in which he now resides would make a great documentary subject. Arriving at their camp in the Montana mountains, the aspiring filmmakers are warmly welcomed by friendly people enjoying an alternate way of living, but their refuge from conventional modern life conceals a dark secret.

Film Review: KANTEMIR (2015)


KANTEMIR ** U.S.A. 2015 Dir: Ben Samuels 84 mins

Robert Englund has a rare turn as a mild-mannered man in this grisly story of a play that comes to life. Englund stars as disgraced actor John who has had a drinking problem and one time got physically aggressive with someone. No one will hire him except for a director who has the perfect role for him, the one catch is no one has met the director or read the script.
