Slender man review

Reviewed by: Harry H. The notion of turning popular video games into films has yielded a mixed bag of results over the years. There are some brilliant examples, such as Silent Hill, Resident Evil and Tron. But these are overshadowed by the sheer number of not-so-brilliant offerings; Doom, Hitman, Prince of Persia, and the sequels to all three of the aforementioned films. So…

The Meg review

“Exactly what kind of shark film is this?”  The shark film genre has had very few true hits, with the original summer blockbuster, Jaws, easily standing above its rival franchises.

It almost seems a strange change of pace. In fact; the term ‘horror’ can be used quite loosely as, while Annihilation certainly has its horrifying…

A Quiet Place review

The horror genre is one that I feel often struggles to bring something new to the table. Everything’s either been done, copied or in some cases, even revived before. Which is why I was so intrigued, if a little sceptical, to hear about a new horror film that was supposedly doing something totally original, as…
