Here Comes The Devil (2012) review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 420 Days Ago. | 6 Comments
What might seem like a stock-standard demonic possession film from the outside, Here Comes The Devil is a much different thing once you’re into it. Director Adrián García Bogliano weaves a fairy simple story from the onset but delves into unexpected, more complex and darker territory as things progress and the feeling you’re left with [...]

Sennentuntschi: Curse of the Alps review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 455 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
After watching a film like Sennentuntschi: Curse Of The Alps (full title, although I care much more for just the first word as the title), one has to wonder why more genre/horror films don’t come out of Switzerland. Because beyond some narrative confusion at points, director Michael Steiner’s Sennentuntschi is a brilliant bit of folklore [...]

Written by Chris Savage, Posted 456 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
It is often that we hear of a Chilean horror film around these parts, but if they all sound as awesome as Cristobal Echevensko’s horror film Yokai, I just wish that they would keep churning them out. But as is, Yokai has scored worldwide distribution via Shoreline Entertainment, according to the folks over at Variety, so [...]

O’ Apostolo Movie review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 506 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
O Apóstolo is a beautifully crafted, spooky ghost fable by Fernando Cortizo which, I hope, gets some chance at a wider audience after festivals and the like. The film does something I absolutely love in animated films which is to tell a story that doesn’t actually need to be animated to be effective. To have [...]

Well this is a blast from the past! It has been years since we last heard anything on this one, and in all seriousness, I presumed this one was dead and buried and it would never see the light of day. But, there appears to be some life in Tobe Hooper’s long awaited flick Djinn, [...]

Fantastic Fest Rigor Mortis (2013) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 521 Days Ago. | No Comments
If you were to describe Juno Mak’s Rigor Mortis in one sentence, you’d say…well, actually I don’t know if that’s possible. The film draws from a range of influences in the ‘Hong Kong’ or ‘Asian’ horror genres to create a tapestry of strangeness that willfully, stubbornly cannot be deposited into just one box. This both [...]

Fantastic Fest – Big Bad Wolves (2013) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 526 Days Ago. | No Comments
Filmmakers Aaron Keshales and Navot Papushado first came onto the scene in 2010 with Kalevet (Rabies), an original and excellent film that was trailblazing for not only being one of the first of its kind from their country, but, also pushing back against the standards of breakdown-type horror setups. Kalevet was self-assured and sharp, brutal [...]

Night two of midnight shows at Fantastic Fest brought Álex de la Iglesia’s Witching & Bitching to the big screen for its US debut.

Fantastic Fest Patrick (2013) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 530 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
Patrick’s director, Mark Hartley is responsible for the incredibly great 2008 documentary ‘Not Quite Hollywood’ about the Australian exploitation film scene of the 70s and 80s. If you’ve not seen it, please do soon. It is an excellent, affectionate and wildly fun documentary that introduced me to a host of wild, crazy Aussie films I [...]
