I was looking to see if Netflix, Amazon or Sky had the film Creed on them but none of them did, I’d not used Amazon prime for a while so thought why not have a scroll through the horror section. There were quite a few films on there I’d not seen, I was hoping to find something short when I stumbled on Hacked. The premise was quite good at least to me, so I sat back and decided to give it a watch.

So it’s worth noting that although this film is listed as Hacked from 2016 on Amazon it is on IMDB as The Den from 2013 with it’s official trailer on YouTube being 2014.

Halloween (2018) Review

So I’ve been away on my honeymoon and whilst over there in America we had a few hours to spare, so we thought why not go catch a movie? I must say the American audience in a cinema tends to react a lot more than us British do, sure we laugh when things are funny but that’s about it. Our American cousins seem to react to gory kills and stuff and are generally more engaged in the film. The film we watched was Halloween and here’s my thoughts……’

Venom (2018) Review

As soon as I saw a trailer featuring the words “we are Venom”, I was excited for the release of this film and I knew the missus and I would go to watch it as soon as we possibly could.

Then came the bad reviews from critics; like, terrible reviews. I searched the Venom hashtag on Twitter and, in typical fashion, found mostly positive comments from normal people who’d gone to see it. That brings up the question of who’s right — the man or woman in the street or the critics on the internet? It also left me in a bit of a pickle; am I a critic or am I a just guy who writes reviews? Anyway, time to see who I agreed with!

Upgrade (2018) Review

1

Needed something to watch the other week and noticed this was out so me and the Missus settled down to watch this revenge film. I’ve always loved a revenge film all they need is a reason, any reason at all and some violence and I’m happy. However with this being set in the near future where the world has taken on board advancements in technology to their own bodies I knew it was worth a look.

Little Evil (2017) Review

Netflix is always a good place to go for a film and they seem to be pumping out more and more Netflix originals. Little Evil was one I’d seen on there a few times but just skipped past without a second thought. Then a few weeks ago I took notice of the trailer and thought it may well be worth a watch, so when I was bored one day and looking for something to watch I thought why not give it a go, question is was it worth it?

From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) Review

The kind people on Twitter voted this film above It Follows, Hellraiser 2 and Cabin in the Woods as the film I should re-watch and review. Needless to say I was pleased that this film won, so after work I sat down to watch this for the 521st time or somewhere close to. I watched this film so many times I could review it from memory, as a teen it was probably the coolest film I’d ever seen and it remains one of the coolest to this very day.
