FrightFest Film Review: Show Pieces

Posted on:

Three of a Kind

KK

The horror anthology, indeed the anthology in general, is something of a dead sub-genre, at least on the big screen. That’s a pity because there’s a great deal of pleasure to be gained from exploring a world from multiple perspectives, enjoying the payoff from overlapping narratives. Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction reminded the world there’s fun to […]

FrightFest Film Review: The Visitor (1979)

Posted on:

Spaghetti Sci-Fi 

The Visitor

Amongst this year’s FrightFest revivals was Arrow Films’ restoration of Giulio Paradisi’s (billed here, rather wonderfully as Michael J. Paradise) bonkers sci-fi horror; a spin on The Omen pitting the descendant of an intergalactic Nazi hunter against the latest strain of a despotic space criminal’s genes – evil eight year old Paige Connor. Are these […]

FrightFest Film Review: Drew – The Man Behind the Poster

Paint A Vulgar Picture

Drew

Moviegoers of a certain age will be familiar with the art of Drew Struzan. He’s the nominative determined pencil and paintsmith behind a string of famous one sheets, amongst them – the iconic image of Michael J. Fox looking aghast at his watch on the Back to the Future poster, Indiana Jones and the Temple of […]

FrightFest Film Review: Doc of the Dead

Talking Deads

DOTD

This new documentary from Canadian filmmaker, Alexandre O. Philippe, last seen reporting from the front of the war of attrition between Star Wars’ creator and the movies’ disillusioned fans in The People Vs George Lucas, looks at Zombie culture. In doing so it inadvertently supports one of its dominant narratives, namely the suggestion we’ve reached […]

FrightFest Film Review: The Guest

The Greatest Hits of the '80s 

The Guest

Warning: This review discusses the film’s plot. The way screenwriter Simon Barrett tells it, he had a script on his hands and it was rancid. “It was just thirty pages of this boring revenge thriller about a solider who destroys this family, and I thought, no one would want to see that,” and right he […]

The Horror, The Horror! The Ooh Tray’s at FrightFest once more

Posted on: ff 2014

That’s right Gore Whores, once again your favourite repository of reviews and comment will be taking its seat for the August Bank Holiday horror show that is the FrightFest audience. It’s likely the films will be disturbing too, which is why we’ll be there, taking notes and clearing the blood and feculence from our eyes […]

Film Review: The Expendables 3

Sloppy Giuseppe

EXP 3

Early on in The Expendables 3 we’re tipped off that a moment of high emotion is taking place. Composer Brian Tyler ups the volume; director Patrick Hughes goes in close on Sylvester Stallone’s yellowed eyes. Are they happy, are they sad? There’s no way to know. The face is inanimate and the watery sockets could […]

On the Road

The Rover

There’s more than an air of Ozploitation about David Michôd’s pared down odyssey. That air’s thick with dust and the smell of dried blood. Wandering through it, a baked ball of intensity and rage, is Guy Pearce’s Eric – an archetypal loner and spiritual heir to Mad Max, who stops for a drink in a […]

Film Review: The Inbetweeners 2

Sequel Wankers

IBTW2

It would be easy to dismiss The Inbetweeners 2 as the arse end of the cinematic experience. On first glance it’s a crude and laboured teen sex comedy, from which all the subtlety’s been carefully excised. If you want to see a dog lick pendulous balls, you’re in luck. Been holding out for a diarrhoeic […]

Hooked on a Feeling

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy kickstarts a new phase of Marvel movies, dubbed “marvel cosmic” by maverick director James Gunn. By hiring Gunn, the man behind esoteric fare like Slither and comic book satire Super, and introducing a slate of characters unfamiliar to general audiences, removed from the superhero archetype – a talking tree and racoon amongst […]
