I had an absolutely fantastic time at Hope Library, sharing with the audience my new novel Bonds Re-Bound, as well as discussing the difference between terror and horror and exploring why it is we like to be scared. Here are some snaps of the evening.
Despite Michael Myers not being my favourite horror movie character, I have been itching to see this movie, and I have to say, I was not disappointed. Why would I say Michael is not my favourite? Well, it's simply because I have never found him to be a believable character. When all is said and … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Halloween

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

It's taken me a while to post this review as I've been trying to work this film out and, to be honest, have come to the conclusion that there's nothing to work out. Slender Man is quite simply the product of nightmares and scare stories. Quite frankly, I think this is great. Isn't this, after … Continue reading Film (Re)View – Slender Man
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?
