It comes from the pen of British horror writer Sam Stone, whose short story collection ‘Zombies In New York And Other Bloody Jottings’ I reviewed here back in January. The story follows Katherine ‘Kat’ Lightfoot, an eighteen […]

Paranormal Activity 4 – Frank’s Take (film review).

Well, at least there is the consistency of churning out another repetitive ‘Paranormal Activity’ installment around the Halloween festivities that is still in vogue. Co-directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (‘Paranormal Activity 3’, ‘Catfish’) are back at the creepy control panel for the fourth outing in ‘Paranormal Activity 4′, an empty-minded boofest that trudges along […]

Shock Value by Jason Zinoman (book review).

They sure don’t make them like they used to. ‘Shock Value’ by New York Times film critic Jason Zinoman covers how a few young directors shook up the system and redefined horror. Before these wunderkinds came along, the genre was suffering and hadn’t moved on from shuffling monsters in dodgy make-up. It took a group […]

Carrie (2013) trailer.

If this was a British movie, at least we could call it Carrie on Screaming. Or bleeding. Or something. Scary stuff. Hopefully for the right reasons, but maybe not. Stephen King, what do you think – write in and let us know?

Sinister (film review) – Frank’s Take.

Director/co-writer Scott Derrickson (‘The Exorcism Of Emily Rose’) creates a slow burn of macabre-oriented mayhem in the creepy caper ‘Sinister’. Derrickson and fellow scriber C. Robert Cargill churn out a traditional yet hackneyed horror showcase that marches to the beat of the same dreary drum. ‘Sinister’ features the conventional atmospherics of titillating tactics concerning a […]

Mockingbird Lane trailer.

Mockingbird Lane was meant to be the full Munsters TV reboot, but all we are left with now is a TV Movie pilot rather than a complete series. What, is the vampire/zombie/horror TV craze dying off now? Staked through the heart? For us Brits, having Eddie Izzard playing Grandpa Munster is the oddest thing about […]
