Happy Death Day (2017) Review

happy-death-day-movie-poster-final

The other day I was looking for something to watch and Mrs AcidBurn suggested two films Happy Death Day or American Satan. I watched the American Satan trailer and decided I wanted something more horror based, so Happy Death Day it was. Now it might be PG-13 but that can easily work for horror films if it’s done well, if not you can end up with an unemployable MTV style teen film. So which is Happy Death Day?

The Ritual(2017) Review

the-ritual-2017

I saw the trailer for The Ritual last year and I’ve wanted to watch it ever since. I tried to go to the cinema but it had awkward times like 10pm on a week day, that might not sound too bad but when I have to get up at 5am for work the following day it was never going to happen. This film arrived on Netflix last Friday but just like the UK fuck it’s own football fans by banning 3 o’clock kick offs being shown on TV, Netflix released this on every Netflix apart from the UK, typical. Still I managed to get a copy and sat down one night to see if it lived up to the high praise it’s been getting.

The Cloverfield Paradox(2018) Review

the_cloverfield_paradox

After a two month break from reviewing for various reasons, I’m back and will hopefully be posting at least a couple of reviews a week. I’ve got a lot to get through having spent some time watching quite a few horror movies over the past few months. I decided to start with The Cloverfield Paradox which has had mostly negative reviews. The Cloverfield universe fascinates me, with three wildly different types of films all taking place in this monster filled universe I’m excited to see where they are going with all this.

Better Watch Out (2016) Review

BWO.jpg

It’s that time of year again, the Christmas moviefests begin and I’m always trying to find some Christmas horror to watch but decent Xmas themed horror is hard to find. My missus was looking at the local cinema listings and for some reason they were showing this despite it being a year old. Normally we’d hop in the car and head to go watch, however if you live in England you’ll be aware that our whole infrastructure fails massively when it snows. So after looking out the window and seeing far too much snow to deal with we settled down to watch our first Christmas movie of the year from the comfort of the sofa.

Gerald’s Game (2017) Review

ba43f587f5cb3acd5234ca17cc03359264c2bca4

I’ve been away from reviewing for a couple of months now for various reasons all of which are too boring to go into! Anyway I’m back now and hopefully I’ll be posting up a few reviews over the coming weeks, so if you want something to watch over Christmas then you’re in the right place to at least get an idea.

Recently Netflix has started to excel with their TV shows, bringing to life some great Marvel characters, giving us the utterly wonderful Stranger Things and quite a few more. There’s also the odd film that pops up on there but I’ve never really watched many of them, however with this being a Stephen King book and having an interesting premise it was worth a punt.

Bad Pennies – A Book Review

BADP

I don’t get the chance to review many books, I get offered quite a few but with me already having several+ books on my current to read list it’s hard to make time. It may sound old fashioned in some ways but I’m also not keen on reading a novel on an iPad or Kindle, I like to have a real physical copy to read. I was quite pleased when John F Leonard messaged me and asked if I’d like a signed copy of his book to read. I was just finishing my current read so thought why not……….

Leatherface (2017) Review

leatherfaceposter

Leatherface and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre rightfully take their place among the slasher movies that started the genre. These films are also probably right up there with the most famous horror films of all time. The last film before this one was pretty damn good, so I had no hesitation in watching this one as well. Obviously by the name you can guess it tells the origin story of Leatherface, how did he become the beast that we all love chainsawing people in the face.

47 Meters Down (2017) Review

47-meters-down-new-international-poster

A while ago I reviewed The Shallows (to read my review click HERE) it really makes you think about the massive lack of Shark films outside of the usual SyFy rubbish we get. The Shallows was a really good film for me, tense and well acted with a massive shark. So now we see another bikini clad woman or in this case women trapped somewhere by sharks, question is can it match The Shallows?

IT (2017) Review

I was worried recently that I’d miss this film at the cinema due to a knee operation but luckily I was able to stumble my way into the cinema and get it watched. You can read my review of the original by clicking HERE! Remakes and reboots are usually disliked by horror fans mainly because they’re miles below the original or they’re a pointless Hollywood remake of an Asian horror because people are too lazy to read subtitles.
