Peninsula Review

Train to Busan Presents: Peninsula poster

It is rare for me to watch a film and love it so much that I immediately hope for a sequel to be made. Not just any sequel will do, of course.

House of Flesh Mannequins Review

For fans of the horror genre, there are plenty of films that have reputations which precede them. Some are for good reasons, others for some not-so-good ones.

The Plot

Scare Package Review

Scare Package poster

No Halloween ‘season’ or month-long marathon is complete without at least one anthology film, right? Truth be told, this isn’t actually the first one I’ve watched this month. It is, however, the first that I am discussing here with you, so without further ado, let’s discuss Scare Package.

The Plot
