Macabre (2010): Indonesian Slasher Gore Fest

(4)
May 3, 2013

Written and directed by Kimo Stamboel and Timo Tjahjanto aka “the Mo Brothers” Macabre has the dubious distinction of being the first Indonesian film to be banned in Malaysia because of its overabundance of gore and violence. Despite this mark against it, the film nonetheless won quite a few awards and the lead actress Shareefa Daanish… Read More ›

Venom (2005): Who do You Voodoo…

Directed by Jim Gillespie (D-Tox, I Know What You Did Last Summer) Venom is a voodoo oriented horror film that takes place, appropriately enough, in swamp filled Louisiana. Despite its low rating on IMDb (4.6) I thought the film was actually quite good, it was at least better than Messengers 2: The Scarecrow. The film deals with… Read More ›

Stitches (2012) Low Budget Clown Horror

Co-written and directed by Conor McMahon (who is still a fledgling in the directing world), Stitches is a “broad” comedy/horror film that will not appeal to all who watch it. If you have no issues with hearing the “C” word (and no I am not referring to cancer) a few times in the film, you may well like… Read More ›

My Soul to Take (2010): The Film Critics Love to Hate?

Written and directed by “tongue-in-cheek” horror master Wes Craven, My Soul to Take opened to almost universal pans. No-one, it appears, liked the film and critics united in an effort to slam this film. As a huge Wes Craven (and fan of all the Screams) I am amazed at the amount of “Craven-bashing” that took place when this film… Read More ›

Madison County (2011): A Southern Slasher on the Cheap

Madison County is a low-budget “slasher” horror film that was filmed in and around Russellville Arkansas. Written and directed by local boy Eric England, the film looks good. The production values are incredibly good, no doubt because England shot the entire film on the Sony Red digital camera. I’ve written about the Red before in an earlier… Read More ›

The Cabin in the Woods (2011): Wolfram and Hart go Big-Time

It may just be me, but the whole film kind of felt like a huge Angel episode. One where Angel and co have already been defeated by ‘Wolf, Ram and Hart’ and are now running the entire world to their own set of skewed rules. It felt like the ‘bad guys’ had won the battle,… Read More ›

Forget Me Not (2009): Forget Me Not Likely

Directed by Tyler Oliver (who also co-wrote the film with Jamieson Stern), Forget Me Not was pretty much slaughtered by the critics. It also appears to have been overlooked by the public as well. So okay we’ve seen the formula before. A lot of World Cinema films use the ‘I did something bad to someone when I was… Read More ›
