Child’s Play (2019): horror film trailer.

Child’s Play is the US horror movie directed by Lars Klevberg (and a remake of the 1988 film of the same name). This one ships with a 21st century update, as a thinly veiled Amazon-like corporation starts manufacturing robot Alexa-ish dolls for the kids – said robots called ‘Buddi’. Sadly, one robot kiddie companion is […]

Shaft (2019) (Reboot with Samuel L. Jackson).

Here’s the trailer for the Shaft movie reboot with Samuel L. Jackson inhabiting the titular role he was surely born to play. This one reminds me of Life on Mars and its sequel, Ashes to Ashes, in that the very un-PC and unreconstructed Shaft (think Gene Hunt) is paired with his FBI agent son (think […]

Painkillers [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng)

Director Roxy Shih’s (‘The Tribe’) psychological thriller ‘Painkillers’ is a horror showcase of a different kind. The decorated demons and lingering despair do not emerge from behind a shady-minded wall or appear in the freakish form of an apparition looking for spooky-minded payback. Shih’s fright fable is effectively embedded in the tortured psyche. The sickness and […]

Here’s the 2nd trailer for the Avengers Endgame film, in which a rather diminished in quantity Avengers team has to duff-up Thanos and work out how to restore the dead 50% of the universe’s population murdered by the big old alien psycho. Heck, has nobody thought to call Adam Warlock?

Alita: Battle Angel (new trailer).

Here’s another trailer for the live action Alita Battle Angel film put together by Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron. Hollywood seems to be littered with the bones of anime cartoons made into live action flicks that then bombed and died. Will Alita Battle Angel break this terrible and seemingly intractable curse? Time will tell-eth!

Mary Poppins Returns [2018] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

One is not sure whether it is foolish or challenging to revisit the vintage magic, festivity and wonderment of the 60s classic musical ‘Mary Poppins’ to serve up for the millennium-age masses. It is only human nature for Poppins purists to compare and contrast the beloved Julie Andrews-starring vehicle with whatever modern-day remake that dares to invoke the bouncy […]

Miss Bala [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

Clearly, enlisting the vivacious actress Gina Rodriguez as an exotic, harried heroine out to kick some Mexican baddie tail in the action and adventure cross-border crime caper ‘Miss Bala‘ was a no-brainer. Gorgeous, gung-ho and gamey, Rodriguez seems like the perfect choice to entice both genders to the box office as they witness her badass beauty self […]

Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng)

One of the familiar clichés that have always been identified in mainstream horror cinema is that ‘the black guy or gal is always the first to get killed or tormented‘. Well, for once the black targets in the revealing and refreshingly insightful documentary ‘Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror’ earns their staying power with a […]
