V/H/S film review (Frank’s Take).

It is one thing to grasp the copycat concept of capitalising on a clever trend in horror moviemaking and extending the gruesome appeal into something more mainstream and profitable. However, when the so-called trend is beaten to death at the hands of clumsy opportunists looking to milk the genre for what it is worth then […]

Frankenweenie film review (Frank’s Take).

Luscious and skillfully presented, filmmaker Tim Burton’s ‘Frankenweenie’ is a highly exquisite black-and-white stop motion animated 3D creepy caper that radiates in wicked-minded wit and wonderment. Clearly, ‘Frankenweenie’ may be Burton’s most imaginative and gorgeously playful films in many years. As an obvious tribute to the classic creatures of yesteryear in retro cinema, ‘Frankenweenie’ is […]

Solomon Kane film review (Frank’s Take).

Writer-director Michael J. Bassett’s brooding and bloated fantasy adventure ‘Solomon Kane’ is rather ambitious in its fire-and-brimstone presentation. The bone-crushing and blood-splattering spectacle is indeed committed to its rousing showcase pertaining to a fearless warrior, wicked sorcerers, curvaceous harlots, revolving thrones, discarded bodies and relentlessly murky battles — all set in the background of Merry […]

The Hole film review (Frank’s Take).

The arrival of the family-friendly horror adventure ‘The Hole’ on the big screen in 2012 is rather puzzling considering that the movie was originally shot in 2008 (with a European release in 2009). Anyhow, fans of filmmaker Joe Dante (‘The Howling’, ‘Gremlins’, ‘Explorers’, ‘Small Soldiers’, ‘The ‘Burbs’) will get re-acquainted with his latest narrative that […]

Hotel Transylvania film review (Frank’s Take).

Checking out at ‘Hotel Transylvania’ is definitely a preferable prospect as opposed to checking in. This lackluster 3D animated feature may be chuckle-worthy for the kiddies particularly when its enticing makeup is a hybrid of pop cultural reminiscences that combines ‘Twilight’ with ‘Monsters, Inc.’ As for adults, ‘Hotel Transylvania’ is just another lame excursion for […]
