Theresa wakes up, on her birthday, in another student’s dorm room after a severely drunken evening. Progressing through the day Theresa pisses pretty much everyone off and, on her way to a party that evening is brutally murdered by someone wearing a college mascot mask (a seriously hideous looking baby).

#MonthOfSpooks – Happy Death Day

I had been flirting around the idea of watching this and with a friend saying that the newly released Creep 2 was a great watch, it prompted me to dive in, finally. Amateur videographer Aaron is invited up to a cabin in the woods to shoot some video of Josef […]

#MonthOfSpooks – Creep

I’m not sure if this film would work better in black and white, as I watched a colour version of this 1959 film but I found it to be more camp than creepy or horrifying.  With no more than one, maybe two scares but the rest was so tame it […]

#MonthOfSpooks – House on Haunted Hill (1959)

Another of the new wave of extreme French cinema (after Haute Tension and Martyrs), A L’Interieur (Inside) tells the simple tale of a pregnant woman who has lost her husband in a car crash and is now under threat from an unknown intruder in her own home. We see Sarah alienating […]

#MonthOfSpooks – Inside

Dracula Untold is an imagining of the origins to the Dracula myth, doing away with the Bram Stoker storyline (is that such a great idea?). We are introduced to Vlad Țepeș (Luke Evans), a prince of Transylvania who was forced to train as a child warrior for the Ottoman Empire and […]

#MonthOfSpooks – Dracula Untold

Hounds of Love follows the ordeal of a teenager, after she is lured into the house of a young couple on the promise of some weed she finds herself held captive and subject to some disturbing behaviour and violence. It is an interesting storyline, and this general plot has become […]

#MonthOfSpooks – Hounds Of Love

Another film to jump on the 60/70s vibe that was utilised so well in The Conjuring  series and this itself is a prequel to the Ouija film of 2014 (which I haven’t actually seen). In this film a young daughter of a Fortune Teller plays around with a Ouija board […]

#MonthOfSpooks – Ouija: Origin of Evil

Final Destination in its purest, original form was really a genre defining film. The idea of Death being sentient, having a design and catching up with the people that have escaped it was both novel and exciting. A school trip to France begins with the party boarding the flight. Alex […]

#MonthOfSpooks – Final Destination

The Borderlands is from the found footage genre of horror film, and as always with these type of films they have some bullshit reason for how and where to put up the CCTV cameras (and we begin with putting cameras up in a cottage that has nothing to do with […]

#MonthOfSpooks – The Borderlands

When Jesse (Carla Gugino) and Gerald (Bruce Greenwood) take off to their cottage in the woods they are going there in an attempt to rekindle their seemingly failing marriage. Things seem almost perfect as they arrive at the idyllic location and they move pretty swiftly into the bedroom and Jesse […]
