Film (Re)View – The Nun

WOW! Yes, it's in capitals, it isn't a mistake. I was completely blown away by this film; The Conjuring universe never disappoints. I have talked in my blogs about the key to a great horror film being the right mix of terror (the build up) and horror (the release) and this movie has nailed it, … Continue reading Film (Re)View – The Nun

Film (Re)View – Unfriended: Dark Web

I have a confession to make, I haven't seen the first one, but I have been reliably informed that you don't need to AND that the first one is better...Why? Because it is supernatural, whereas this one isn't. That raises an interesting question with regards to what scares people the most. If the young lad … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Unfriended: Dark Web

This is a question I often ask myself when I go to see a film which is touted as a horror, but as I sit there zoning out within about twenty minutes, I realise I’ve been duped, yet again, as it is clearly science fiction…or is it? This debate raised its head again, not too … Continue reading Is it Sci-Fi or is it Horror? More to the Point, How do You Tell?

Film (Re)View – The Secret of Marrowbone

Well, Scream Unseen certainly pulled out all the stops with this beautifully haunting tale about a family, driven into exile by a murderous and abusive father. On arrival back to their mother's childhood home in the USA, the Fairbairn family change their name to Marrowbone - their mother's maiden name - in an effort to … Continue reading Film (Re)View – The Secret of Marrowbone

Horrifically Inspirational…Women of Horror

When I was asked to do an extra Into the Darkness show on Calon FM, to celebrate International Women’s Day back in March, the voices started arguing over who would be best served up for such a momentous occasion. Of course, there are many women deserving of mention, but being a horror themed show, I … Continue reading Horrifically Inspirational…Women of Horror
