I’ve always felt that sci-fi and horror were a match made in heaven, er, hell. While the two genres used to be mixed together more commonly back in the golden era of the 80s, it feels as though we get don’t enough of it nowadays. Luckily there are some filmmakers who are still daring enough to meld the two together. Brad Sykes is one of those brave souls and he did so pretty effectively in his 2008 film, Plaguers. [...]
Anna and the Apocalypse Review
I’m not sure what is going on with the Universe, but time flies by way too quickly nowadays. Unfortunately, as I get older, that all seems to happen even more rapidly. As if the year didn’t speed by quickly enough on its own, I’ve decided to help things along by watching a film which takes place during Christmas time.

I wish I could say I’ve seen them all, but we all know that this is close to impossible with real life getting in the way of movie watching. There were, however, a few last-minute releases that were making waves amongst horror fans that I knew I just had to see sooner rather than later. One [...]
Burial Ground Review
Even though it may seem like a more recent trend, an overabundance of zombie films is no new thing to the horror genre. The 1980s are known as the golden age of the slasher film, but it was really the golden era for zombie flicks, as well — the majority of which were produced and released in Europe. One of those Italian splatter films was Andrea Bianchi’s Burial Ground.
