A Quiet Place (2018) Review

a-quiet-place-poster (1)

So now the World Cup has ended in heartbreak it’s time to focus back on the horror movies. It’s been a while since my last review mainly because it’s so incredibly time consuming watching three and a half football matches a day. Now however I’m back and after managing to catch a showing of A Quiet Place at the cinema in it’s dying weeks, I thought it’s a good place to start to get back into the swing of things!

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.

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?

My Life in Horror 1982 Part Two – Swamp Thing

f5dfbed5a3ee84f2f8eaee2d74a47c06

So the good people of Twitter voted in Swamp Thing as the second winner of the 1982 poll. A comic book movie that’s not really that much of a horror, in fact lets be honest it lacks everything a horror film needs but that doesn’t mean it’s not a fun film. I had never seen it before and in today’s world of massive CGI SFX in comic films it was fun to watch something from 1982 that wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be! You can check out the other winning film from 1982 by clicking HERE!

The Sand (2015) Review

the-sand-poster

I sat down last night and didn’t have anything to watch there was the usual reality job shows on TV like Can’t Pay We’ll Take It Away and Police Interceptors. Along with the usual repeats of QI, Mock The Week and other comedy panel shows on Dave. I flicked to the horror channel and saw “The Sand” was on, I remember reading about it ages ago it sounded like a fun B movie with a silly but decent idea. The beach was eating people! So why not sit down and give it a watch.

Deep Blue Sea (1999) Review

dbs

The mid 90’s to early 2000’s seemed to bring forth quite a few giant monster attack films, sharks, sea beasts, snakes, crocodiles, spiders lots of either giant real animals or made up big monsters wanted to attack people. Whilst Deep Rising had slipped my mind until someone mentioned it on Twitter, Deep Blue Sea I knew about and being as I reviewed Jaws, The Shallows and even Sharknado it seemed right to re-watch and review this one for my Monster Movie Month.

Splinter (2008) Review

hr_splinter_poster_saw

I’d seen this movie around quite a bit when looking through various streaming services’ horror sections but never really fancied watching it. Then with this month dedicated to monster movies I did a bit of searching for the generic “Greatest Monster Movies Ever” articles. When I searched for modern ones Splinter was often listed quite high, one person even comparing it to The Thing. With that type of compliment I thought why not give it a watch.

Deep Rising (1998) Review

42778_front

Continuing the monster movie theme for this month I decided to watch Deep Rising, someone had mentioned this on Twitter when I asked for some recommendations for monster movies. Strangely or not if you know me this film had dropped completely from my mind until someone mentioned it. As soon as I looked it up I remembered having it on VHS and watching it quite a few times in my late teens, so the question is does it hold up or not?

Tremors (1990) Review

tremors-film-images-3c92f6cc-3076-4de6-a082-2adef19abd0

No monster movie month would be complete without a review/look back at Tremors, as a kid this was one of the coolest films I ever watched and it still remains that way today over 25 years later. I’d be very surprised if there’s anyone who hasn’t seen this and better still Kevin Bacon is being linked to a new Tremors TV show after all these years. Hopefully it will make up for the lackluster sequels that it’s spawned, anyway on to the film at hand…..
