The Graveyard Poet

Writer Steve Santini possesses no talent whatsoever, prompting the begging of life's most simple, yet profound question: why?

The Silent House

Florencia Colucci is superb, easily shouldering the film. Also impressive is some genuine creepiness courtesy of clever lighting.

Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated

Despite the odd flare of brilliance, the concept fails. For rabid collectors only.

The Rite

All a rather predictable outcome that doesn't offer anything we've not seen before, but Anthony Hopkins saves it.

I Spit on Your Grave (2010)

The cartoon violence on display here completely removes all sense of realism, shoving the film into torture porn territory.

Let Me In

The performances are faultless, but clumsy CGI removes the delicateness that had us so in love with the original.

Julia’s Eyes

A mixed bag and too ambitious for so early in a career, however Guillem Morales should be noted for the future.

5150 Elm’s Way

A confused affair that is a bizarre mishmash of clashing styles, with the barest of subplot revealed in just one line of dialogue.

7 Days

A masterpiece that will make the world sit up and take notice of what is the perfect portrayal of the psychology of a man.

Confessions

A cruel indictment on contemporary Japanese youth and their despondency, which unravels its cruel web satisfactorily.

Insidious

With huge jump scares and more subtle, creepy moments, this is a film which has mastered the whole spectrum of horror filmmaking.

Peeping Tom

A timeless and sublime masterpiece that presents an incredibly intelligent and moving picture of psychological struggle.

Attack the Block

Stands on its own two feet amongst the usual Brit comedy suspects, which is largely due to its cast of unknowns.

Wasting Away

This low-budget indie is a star turn, with a clever, funny script that shows life from the point of view of the zombie.

/ April 21, 2011

Knuckle Supper

An interesting and refreshing take on your standard toothy yarn, but the author lacks the ability to drive his purpose home.

Dear Mr. Gacy

Low budget, not particularly well acted and with a basic script, yet somehow, this film manages to elicit goosebumps.

How to Speak Zombie: A Guide for the Living

There are many zombie survival guides out there. But do any of them teach you how to speak zombie?

Re-Cut

A great example of how the first-person horror subgenre works its magic, but it also highlights some of its core flaws.

We Are What We Are

Deftly balances a horror premise with the politics of a family drama, marking Jorge Michel Grau as a filmmaker to watch.

/ April 11, 2011

Wake Wood

With nicely subtle handling of its occult element, the film slowly builds an atmosphere and is more chilling as a result.
