Babadook, the

Let me start by saying that out of the few exemplary Australian films I’ve seen in my life, The Babadook is certainly somewhere near the top. Jennifer Kent has crafted a tight little psychological thriller that has more than its fair share of creepy atmosphere. Essie Davis stars as Amelia, […]

Barrens, the

scene from the movie

The plot here is about a man (Moyer) who wants to get away from the stress and technological advancement of modern life, so he packs up his wife/girlfriend (Kirshner) and his two kids (Allie MacDonald and Peter DaCunha) and takes them all for a camping trip up to the beautiful pine barrens of…


movie scene

The plot here is either really simple and barely non-existent, or it’s overly complex and I just didn’t “get it.” A bunch of police officers are sitting around talking about shit and they get a call to go check out some rundown weird area, they crash their van, the weird area…

Battery, the

movie scene

The film was made on a mere budget of six thousand dollars and looks very impressive considering. The cinematography and framing by Christian Stella is a slight step above typical indie fare and has a nice sun soaked and rather artistic feel to it…

The plot is well told and rather inventive and although it veers more often than not towards comedic situations it also handles what relatively little serious business is on display quite well. The afterworld…

Berlin Syndrome

scene from the movie

The Berlin Syndrome (based upon the book of the same name by Melanie Joosten) is one of those careful-having-sex-with-foreigners films that caution us about one night stands in exotic locales by showing us one of the absolute worst possible outcomes you could have. The film differs from the book quite […]

Beyond the Gates is a film that largely succeeds/and/or/fails mainly based upon how much nostalgia you feel for the bygone days from whence VHS based board games existed. Remember those? No=Beyond the Gates probably won’t entertain you a whole hell of a lot. Yes=Beyond the Gates might entertain you a […]

Blair Witch

When it was announced that Adam Wingard was directing an original horror film set in “The Woods”, I thought it sounded like a great idea and I was pretty stoked for it. Later it was revealed that it wasn’t an original film at all but actually a sequel to The […]

Blob, the

Today we have an oldie but a goodie (well, kind of a goodie, I mean, it isn’t the best but it’s decent). The Blob is one of those late fifties, classic, cheap American horror films of yesteryear (though I kind of doubt that anyone thought that a film as campy […]

Body Melt

Body melt w/ extra cheese     Those Aussies/and/New Zealanders seemed to make the damnedest things in the nineties. Body Melt just so happens to be one of those damn things. The brain child of Philip Brophy, whom you may or may not know from a sort of weird, possibly […]
