Savages Crossing

ORDER DVD When Sue (Angela Punch McGregor) finds out her estranged husband Phil (John Jarrat) is about to be released from prison, she’s terrified. She cleans out the bank account, puts through a call to a friend named Chris (Chris Haywood), packs up her teenage son Damien (Charlie Jarratt, John’s real-life son) and heads out of […]

Inner Demon

One of the greatest joys in life is enjoying the success of friends…only eclipsed by the sweet nectar that is the failure of enemies. I can happily report that Ursula Dabrowsky has lived up to, and exceeded, the promise shown in her debut feature Family Demons (2009) with the second film in her Demon-trilogy, Inner […]

Pop Skull

ORDER DVD For Daniel (Lane Hughes) life is at a crossroads. His existence in blue collar Alabama suffered a huge body blow when he was dumped by his girlfriend Natalie (Maggie Henry). While she is off with her new actor boyfriend, Daniel seeks solace in over-the-counter drugs and pills. Unfortunately for Daniel, the self-medication backfires. […]

Dollman

ORDER DVD Albert Pyun dropped some great flicks on the laps of me and my fellow trash fiends including one of my favourite fantasy films The Sword and the Sorcerer. During the late 80s and early 90s he was at his peak with flicks like Cyborg, Bloodmatch and the completely underrated Kickboxer 2 (gimme this […]

Demonic Toys

ORDER DVD Full Moon are notorious for their low budget “so bad it’s good” (and in some cases just unbelievably fucking shit) flicks and along with Troma they are the kings of this particular style of filmmaking… if you could call it that. There definitely are a lot of Full Moon’s flicks that basically smear […]

Mark of the Beast

ORDER DVD Mark of the Beast is an odd, somewhat awkward movie. It takes place in an unidentified area of (presumably) America where civilisation ends at the border of a great Forest populated by strange wild people who worship an odd monkey god. Two friends, Debbie (Debbie Rochon) and Strickland (Dick Boland) try to escort […]

Isle of the Damned

I’ve found the Horror/Comedy subgenre quite lacking over the past few years as most of the output has been cookie cutter Army of Darkness and Shaun of the Dead clones. In all honesty I wasn’t expecting much from Isle of the Damned, but another tired retread in the similar vein thankfully that wasn’t the case. […]

Dead Sushi

ORDER DVD Keiko (Rina Takeda) is the daughter of a legendary sushi chef, but his disdain for women and her general ineptitude mean she cannot live up to his standards. Sick of his vicious and gruelling karate-style sushi training, she runs away and finds a job at a rural hot springs hotel renowned throughout Japan […]

The Silent House

ORDER DVD With jaded modern audiences, in can become increasingly difficult for horror filmmakers to engage their audience with any kind of tension or scares. Some resort to extreme shock tactics, but there is also the ‘found footage’ subgenre, where the camera itself is part of the story in an attempt to fully immerse the […]

Bath Salt Zombies

Another great no budget effort from Dustin Wade Mills, the man behind Night Of The Tentacles, this film makes the most of its limitations, providing a fast paced, well acted (well okay, that could be pushing it), good time for fans of low budget splatter. In New York City a new drug has hit the streets, […]
