The Menu Movie Review

The restaurant in the film, Hawthorne is based loosely on an actual restaurant called KOKS that was featured in the Danish documentary Nordic by Nature - Michelin Stars. It shares that establishment’s isolated island location but flips the script and introduces a real sense of peril to its diners.   //   The film’s structure as it resolves works on so many levels. As social commentary, it is wickedly assertive and the comments on the anonymity that many expect from ...

The Possessed Movie Review

He or maybe she will always be a great bad guy or gal to put in a film and The Possessed rocks that notion hard. From old Beelzebub’s frequent visits to suburban homes to playing musical chairs in a noisy nightclub, the evil presence always packs a solid punch. A gory misshaped drooling bloody punch.   //   Jacob Chandler (John Jarratt) and his nephew Liam (Lincoln Lewis) have a successful side-hustle preforming exorcisms. When Liam’s new nightclub DJ girlfriend ...

Watch the debut trailer for M3GAN – in cinemas January 12, 2023!

From the most prolific minds in horror—James Wan, the filmmaker behind the Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring franchises, and Blumhouse, the producer of the Halloween films, The Black Phone and The Invisible Man—comes a fresh new face in terror. M3GAN is a marvel of artificial intelligence, a life-like doll programmed to be a child’s greatest companion and a parent’s greatest ally. Designed by brilliant toy-company roboticist Gemma (Get Out’s Allison Williams), M3GAN can listen ...

From 87North, the bare-knuckle producers of Nobody, John Wick, Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2, Bullet Train and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw comes a coal-dark holiday action-comedy that says you should always bet on red. When a team of mercenaries breaks into a wealthy family compound on Christmas Eve, taking everyone inside hostage, the team isn’t prepared for a surprise combatant: Santa Claus (David Harbour, Black Widow, Stranger Things series) is on the grounds, and ...

Halloween Ends Movie Review

Michael Myers still gets to come back from the grave one more time and wreak havoc as is his purview. He also gets to run headlong into the world of mainstay Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis). How this happens is done in a somewhat unique way. No clues as to how that will happen are to be given here.   //   When the murders do start to ramp up there are few surprises in the gore department but the humour factor gets elevated at times and those laughs are welcome. These ...

Don’t Worry Darling Movie Review

Don't Worry Darling is a challenging experience but one that will reward those that don’t need to be spoon-fed their films. Its narrative is something on the surface but almost entirely different under that facade. Its bright and colourful fifties persona hides a dark secret.   //   Alice (Florence Pugh) and Jack (Harry Styles) lead an idyllic life and seem lustfully in love. The desert community in which they live mirrors the fifties lifestyle perfectly, too perfect...

Watch the final trailer for Halloween Ends – only in cinemas October 13!

Icon Jamie Lee Curtis returns for the last time as Laurie Strode, horror’s first “final girl” and the role that launched Curtis’ career. Curtis has portrayed Laurie for more than four decades now, one of the longest actor-character pairings in cinema history. When the franchise relaunched in 2018, Halloween shattered box office records, becoming the franchise’s highest-grossing chapter and set a new record for the biggest opening weekend for a horror film starring a woman. &n...

Bodies Bodies Bodies Movie Review

Gleaming details from the advertising and trailers that the film is marketed as a horror comedy, you think to yourself I hope these youths start getting picked off and soon. Sticking with it does have its payoff in part two though.   //   From the midpoint on, it’s very funny and its social commentary is as deadly as its body count. The hurricane party becomes less the cause of the mayhem and more the backdrop for human maleficence. By the film’s end, several ...
