The Nightmare – Henry Fuseli

Here it is! 2021! We have finally put to bed the year that wasn’t, and yet we are still in some form of lockdown (even if we aren’t calling it that these days). I have found a new guilty pleasure though, while I am limited to hanging out at home and walking the dog, which... Continue Reading →

Film – Parasite

I really love a horror film, which will be absolutely evident if you have read any other of my film articles; but I quite often find myself saying “they don’t make them like they used to”.  The characters seem insipid in newer horror to the point I don’t really care what happens to them, and... Continue Reading →

Film – Midsommer

I have said it before... I went to see the remake of "The Wickerman" just to see Nicholas Cage burn at the end.  I appreciate it is a brash statement, and actually, I don't wish the guy any harm (just in case he stumbles across this one day and thinks I am the one that... Continue Reading →

Pet Sematary – Film

I loved Stephen King books when I was growing up.  I was devouring his books from about the age of 10, which looking back, may well have been a little young, but they were better than Nancy Drew so... Reflecting on it now, I realise it is because the stories were exciting but the writing... Continue Reading →

Film – Hereditary

It's been an age since I have written about a film, so obviously I am jumping at the chance to tell you all about this little gem, hopefully I will do a better job that 'The Independent' writer, who wrote such an appalling article about the film, that I felt compelled to tell them either... Continue Reading →

Ghost Stories

I absolutely love a horror film, from the very bad ones to the amazingly haunting ones, but I find that usually the end is a little lack lustre. It usually revolves around the story having a happy ending and the demon, murderer, ghost or psycho getting their just desserts and everyone getting on with their... Continue Reading →


Sometime there are films that are so bad that they swing back around again to good, simply because they miss the mark of what they are intended for so dramatically. I love films like that, and this just happens to be one of those. This is a real work of cinematic genius, if you like... Continue Reading →

The Wicker Man

It’s been a while since I’ve written a post about the actor I love to hate. Yes it’s old potato face, Nicholas Cage. As if the original of this film, with its all star cast of Edward Woodward, Britt Ekland and Christopher Lee wasn’t weird enough, it was felt that this needed a revamp in... Continue Reading →


Well now...I didn't know how to feel about this remake. Stephen King books were a staple of mine growing up, and IT was fairly relatable, kids fighting their fears come to reality. So the original film/series (as the 90s loved to turn Kings horror in to a series and then show it as a film... Continue Reading →


There is nothing better than curling up with someone and watching a horror film, whether the film be good or bad as usually the genre of horror can lend itself to the comedic when it's bad; and if it's good it's always nice to have a chest to hide your face in. This film surpassed... Continue Reading →

It comes at night

I have really mixed feelings about this film.  If you're looking for a piece of atmospheric cinematography then this could be the film for you.  If you are looking for a kick arse horror that this film was advertised as, then don't go and see it.   There are spoilers in this, don't read if... Continue Reading →


This film has some seriously mixed of course I had to check it out for myself.  Especially as it has just cropped up on Netflix.  Spoilers are in this article....if you plan to watch maybe wait until after you have watched it to read this. This is 4 "horror" scenarios wrapped up in to... Continue Reading →

Saturn – Goya

It's a haunting and horrific images isn't it...cannibalism at its peak.  One of the 14 paintings known as "the black paintings" these were first produced on the walls of Goya's farm house during his dark period after losing his hearing and becoming almost hermit like. Painted between 1819 - 1823, this was only transferred to... Continue Reading →

Flesh and Blood

If you are looking for a good horror read, Graham Masterton is always the way to go for I hear you say...wait I thought he wrote sex instructional manuals.  Well you would be correct.  He has indeed written "How to drive your man wild in bed" and "Wild sex for new lovers" and his... Continue Reading →


If you are looking for an entry point in to the French extremist film genre, this is probably the best film you could watch for it.  It's not so extreme that it will put you off but the story line is extreme enough to turn the stomach of the feint hearted. Yes it's subtitled...but actually... Continue Reading →

Strange Blood

This. Is. Terrible. That is how the line would be delievered if I was an actor in this film.  It's a bit like they all graduated from the William Shatner school of over acting and drawn out speeches. So... mad scientist is developing a cure for everything... yes everything! He appears to be working in... Continue Reading →

Before I Wake

This is another of my Netflix finds.  I was awake early one morning as ironically I suffer with insomnia hence my ability to watch vast amounts of films, hold down a job (not at blockbusters for those of you who remember that) and have a social life.   I wasn't expecting much, and I tend... Continue Reading →


I did not have high hopes for this film.  I was doing my usual lets see what's on Netflix and give it a go.  I was really looking for something I could rant about after an appalling day at work, but what I was actually met with was a film based in a social media... Continue Reading →

The Secrets of Emily Blair

Now... before I write this one, there is something you guys should know about me... I love really shite films.  I love watching them and talking to them as I watch them, wondering why the director bothered to get up in the morning while working on this, or if the actors felt that this was...
