True Bloodthirst (2012)

Damn. I was really hoping this would be a truly terrible film – I think Ablogalypse is due some bad reviews. Alas I cannot give you this as True Bloodthirst – also known as Vampyre Nation – is actually not that bad. That isn’t to say it is good as such, it is most certainly…

Hell (2011)

A German film reminiscent of The Road (2009) although also has touches of Resident Evil: Extinction (2007) and Manhunt* (2008) I was remarkably impressed with it, initially thinking that it would be a bit of a boring watch. The film follows a group of wasteland survivors traveling towards the mountains in hope of a better…

They Live (1988)

“The poor and the underclass are growing. Racial justice and human rights are non-existent. They have created a repressive society and we are their unwitting accomplices.  They are dismantling the sleeping middle class. More and more people are becoming poor. We are their cattle. We are being bred for slavery.” “Outside the limit of our…

Slither (2006)

– A Review by Liz – Firefly fans rejoice – Nathan Fillion takes up his role as Gun-totin’, witty leader once again in this Mal Reynolds vs Giant Space Leeches horror-comedy. Fillion plays Bill Pardy, a local sheriff faced with global enslavement of the human race when creepy space leeches begin infesting residents of his…

Looper (2012)

‘Face your future, Fight your past’ Lopper was credited as this decades ‘The Matrix’. While it is no doubt a very good film with a very bizarre plot line, I do not really get this comparison. No doubt Looper is good, but why The Matrix? One thing is for sure, the films are nothing alike. The…

28 Days Later (2002)

28 Days later is the British zombie film to end all British zombie films. No fan can be a true zombie film buff without having 28 Days Later as part of their collection (granted I don’t currently know where my copy is, but still…) The film is based around the premise of a zombie epidemic…

Pontypool (2008)

“Shut up or die” – brilliant tag line which is something I have frequently wanted to shout at unruly school children (I have thus far restrained myself…) Another incredibly well manufactured indie movie, Pontypool does justice to the locked-in genre of horror and succeeds in building tension beautifully, simply through the reality of the situation,…

Pacific Rim (2013)

-Review by Paul Ewbank- Movies about monsters the size of skyscrapers are pretty rare these days. Whether due to the fact that it’s been done too many times before or the current obsession with gritty realism in action movies, there seems to be a pretty severe height restriction imposed within most film studios of the 21st century….

The Watcher of Yaathagggu (Web Comic)

The Watcher of Yaathagggu is a web comic I discovered many moons ago. The graphic style is fantastic and the plot, although It has (in my opinion) recently floundered, is quite interesting. I much prefer the earlier parts of the series to the later developments, but that is possibly as I am not really sure…

Tooth and Nail (2007)

Tooth and Nail is certainly not the highest calibre film around. I only bumped into it due to the fact it had one of the characters out of Boy Meets World* in it. The film is pretty boring and not great. I skipped through most of it, pausing at the best bits and trying to…

Infestation (2009)

Infestation is an oddly enjoyable B movie that no doubt Paul would insult if he would actually agree to watch it with me. The premise is pretty simple: a group of office workers wake up in cocoons to discover that giant insects have taken over the world. Our plot follows Cooper, an underachieving office worker…
