Martin (Vegar Hoel) is having a tough time. His skiing holiday with his friends turned into a massacre when they accidentally awoke a platoon of frozen Nazi zombies and now, as the only survivor, he has to somehow stop the undead fascists as they set their sights on a newRead More →

I love British crime series although lately they’ve really started to become crappy by jumping on board the whole exploitative missing kid genre. The Fall was one of the better shows of recent years and I was greatly anticipating series two. What makes the show so awesome (apart from Gillian Anderson)Read More →

It’s official, Madman is my favourite DVD company. Ever. Criterion is too conneisuer and overpriced, Umbrella have ugly cover art and don’t know how to spell check and Madman never let me down. Arthouse releases, documentaries and horror not to mention releasing those out of print/forgotten about gems.  I declaredRead More →

I can’t remember the first time I laid my eyes on Hello Kitty but I have passed my Hello Kitty obsession down to my daughter who has Hello Kitty lego, a bean bag, towels, tea sets, DVDs, clothes and toys. Yes I am buying the stuff I wish I hadRead More →

In the annals of horror history, few films are as universally adored as Evil Dead (1981). A ragged, breathless, almost plotless adrenalin surge of a movie, it is about as pure a horror movie as you can get. The set-up is that which launched a thousand imitators. Five college kidsRead More →

Alex de la Iglesia is just about the textbook definition of a ‘cult’ director. First breaking through in 1993 with the sci-fi lunacy of Accion Mutante before making a splash internationally with the comedy/horror The Day of the Beast. He has forged a path of unhinged films, populated with idiosyncraticRead More →

These days, especially when I review things, I go out of my way to avoid reading anything about the film or in this case documentary. This can have its downsides as I was kind of hyped to see this film thinking it would be along the lines of other documentariesRead More →

I’ve studied the Holocaust and representation of trauma in media at University so whenever there’s an opportunity to review Nazi related films and documentaries I am the first to put my hand up. It’s a subject I never seem to tire of, but History Channel documentaries are tedious with theirRead More →

It’s easy to wonder if there’s a ‘better you’ out there. One who made different choices, one who was braver, one who works out and eats well, one who studies hard, one who takes that risk. It’s easy to wonder if your life would be better if you just wereRead More →
