Survival of the Dead (2009)

This is difficult. Nobody wants to lay the boot into one of their heroes. Who the hell am I to sit here and throw lazy insults towards George A Romero, a man I have admired most of my life? A father figure of sorts who has taught me so much…

Antichrist (2009)

Antichrist is a difficult film. It’s borderline misogynistic (as has been pointed out by countless critics), definitely pornographic and extremely violent. It is a horror film, though not a conventional horror film by any standards, instead toying with the genre’s clichés and ideology. It’s a treatise on grief and pain, and of psychological trauma. And, most importantly, it is a work of high art…

Drag Me To Hell (2009)

Director Sam Raimi returns to horror, the genre that gave birth to his career after completing the low-budget classic The Evil Dead in 1983. Raimi’s films have, for the most part, incorporated dark themes (I just won’t mention the atrocious For Love Of The Game – oh no, too late!), and horror is a genre that fits the director like a glove…

The Exorcist (1973)

Famously, it was the film that saw cinemas distribute vomit bags to audiences at the time of release, with many people fainting in the theatre at the horrific sights on screen. And indeed, the vision of an obscenity-screaming preteen indecently applying a crucifix to herself still remains one of the most unforgettable in cinema history, even by today’s “torture porn” horror film standards. But The Exorcist is more than just a piece of celluloid designed to shock…

Rosemary’s Baby (1968) • They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? (1969) • 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Cinema doesn’t get much creepier than Rosemary’s Baby. It’s hard to believe that this film is 40 years old, for in those four decades it has lost none of its insidious power. The success of the film lies firstly in the excellent source material, that being the novel of the same name by Ira Levin; secondly in a superb cast led by the eternally cool John Cassavettes and the marvellous character actor Ruth Gordon (from Harold & Maude); and lastly in the genius of writer/director Roman Polanski…

Quarantine (2008) • Babylon A.D (2008) • Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans (2008)

Here we go again with yet another Hollywood remake of a foreign horror film, this time the superior Spanish production [REC]. On one seemingly uneventful evening, a young reporter and her cameraman are shooting a piece on a brigade of firefighters. When they receive a call to attend a disturbance at an apartment building, they discover some crazy shenanigans inside from one rabid tenant…

Tropic Thunder (2008) • The Wind That Shakes The Barley (2006) • The Ruins (2008)

This hilarious film is bound to offend some people – yet it is bad taste with taste (if that’s possible!). Filled with wonderful cameos, film references and hilarious faux trailers and adverts, this comedy goes where no comedy has gone before – straight into the heart of darkness. Get some!…
