7/10 100% Infra-Man (Zhong guo chao ren) (1975) If you see the film cold without reading the booklet, be prepared for one of the wackiest, spectacularly silly and cheerfully tongue-in-cheek films to come out of the Shaw Brothers studio. ‐ Starburst

5/10 59% Amazon Women on the Moon (1987) A lot of the scenes are stylishly spot-on but don't appear to have the same comedic impact as they did back in the day.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet Dogs (1975) Dogs suffers from sloppy editing and expectation which renders the key moments more silly than shocking.‐ Starburst

7/10 47% My Little Pony: The Movie (2017) As it stands, this is a pretty bog-standard animation adventure, with a tradition well rooted in classic Disney fare like 101 Dalmations and The Rescuers. ‐ Starburst

9/10 95% November (2018) November is a multi-faceted genre masterpiece, taking a stylish blend of classic supernatural horror and blending it with a tender tragedy to create a superior work of Eastern European Cinema.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet The Ninth Cloud (2014) The Ninth Cloud is a watchable piece that will provoke constructive conversation amongst British indie film fans.‐ Starburst

7/10 33% Inoperable (2017) Much of the appeal of the film is down to horror fan favourite Harris, who continues to impress in a genre that has defined her career - after her early childhood acting work in films with Bruce Willis and Steven Seagal.‐ Starburst

7/10 100% Diverge (2016) Sandomire is very good in the lead role and holds the film together.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Jerry Lewis: The Man Behind the Clown (2016) Jerry Lewis - The Man Behind the Clown is a perfectly enjoyable watch, but one feels that there is so much more to Lewis.‐ Starburst

8/10 87% The Road Movie (2018) This is a very real and occasionally shocking experience that deserves a look.‐ Starburst

7/10 56% The Horror of Frankenstein (1971) It's a faithful tribute to the Shelley characters and legacy and follows the plot line of other adaptations of the novel.‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet Straight on Till Morning (Dressed for Death) (The Victim) (Til Dawn Do Us Part) (1972) It does feel rather dated now, but the very heart of the piece reveals some suitably shocking moments.‐ Starburst

8/10 44% To The Devil A Daughter (1976) To the Devil a Daughter is a fitting tribute to a legendary horror production slate and one that fans new and old should seek out.‐ Starburst

7/10 92% The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970) The film is still enjoyable enough, with good support from Christopher Lee as Holmes' brother Mycroft and a criminally brief appearance by Irene Handl as Mrs. Hudson and it is the performances throughout that maintain the interest.‐ Starburst

9/10 70% Angelica (2017) It is a rare treat to encounter a period horror film which says a lot about the relationship between man and woman and man-versus-nature, whilst providing a satisfyingly eerie psychological drama.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2017
7/10 78% Sweet Virginia (2017) The film's key strength is in Jessica Lee Gagne's cinematography, a very stylish pallet of greys and blacks.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Nov 30, 2017
8/10 No Score Yet Demons of the Mind (Blood Evil)(Nightmare of Terror)(Blood Will Have Blood) (1972) Demons of the Mind is a welcome contribution to the series of films and deserving of a new Blu-ray release.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Blood from the Mummy's Tomb (1972) It's a darkly fun yarn - and another proud example of what can be achieved on a limited budget with talent.‐ Starburst

8/10 77% New Jack City (1991) Whilst not as analytical about the debate on drugs like Soderbergh's Traffic, there is much to think about and take from a still-enjoyable movie.‐ Starburst

8/10 20% Scars of Dracula (1970) This ranks as one of Hammer's greatest ever.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
8/10 100% The Tiger: An Old Hunter's Tale (Daeho) (2016) The director wisely keeps visual sightings of the tiger to a minimum and relies more on the human element in the story, the conflict of whether these hunters and soldiers should pursue their goal of stopping the animal for fortune or glory.‐ Starburst

7/10 80% Terrifier (2018) Terrifier may suffer a little bit in terms of audience success because of the King blockbuster, but Art is certainly a little scarier than Pennywise at times in this film.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
8/10 No Score Yet The Black Gloves (2017) If you are in demand of something a bit more intellectual and meaty, then The Black Gloves is exactly what you are looking for.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
7/10 No Score Yet It Came from the Desert (2017) The fun is always watching seemingly courageous youths fall apart when faced with adversity like this in classic form.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
9/10 No Score Yet Horror Movie: A Low Budget Nightmare (2017) There is added poignancy with the reflections of a real life Down Syndrome actor who provides a heartfelt desire to feel a part of the world, regardless of whether he is an actor or not and he provides some of the funniest moments.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
7/10 No Score Yet Hostile (2017) There is a touching climax to the film ... a rarity in a movie that also features monstrosities roaming the desert like extras in The Descent, so worth sticking with for the duration.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
6/10 No Score Yet Housewife (2017) Evrenol certainly knows and understands the intentions of the genre, even if here he hasn't quite pulled off the right essence of ideas and shocks that an audience looks for in a film like this.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2017
8/10 94% Blood Simple (1984) The script is as tight as it ever was, keeping attention throughout and little clues and subtleties can easily be missed if you are not paying attention - this film demands focus from the very first frame.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
6/10 67% Ben (1972) Ben is more successful [than predecessor Willard], due to sticking to a Them-style monster narrative and actually having some rather atmospheric moments of tension, thus being more effective as a horror movie.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
6/10 59% Willard (1971) Willard is a strange affair now, as it isn't really that horrifying and the pay-offs at the end are relatively tame. It struggles in what it is trying to be and indeed.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
8/10 86% The Entity (1982) Overall, even today, The Entity remains a refreshingly intelligent take on parapsychological and unexplained phenomenon.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2017
6/10 0% Exterminator 2 (1984) Exterminator 2 is a more action-based affair and does have sufficient stock to satisfy fans of the original. ‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2017
7/10 25% The Vault (2017) Bush certainly shows a lot of potential with this film and it is tautly-edited with an effective set-up of the heist in progress. ‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2017
7/10 No Score Yet The Hollow Child (2017) Whilst it may not be destined to set the box-office alight - and will probably find its place on streaming and cable channels, The Hollow Child is a passably diverting supernatural thriller and a film with talent to watch out for in the future.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Sep 21, 2017
8/10 79% Double Date (2017) It is certainly great to applaud a brand-new British entry in the horror genre and one that combines the spirit of Brit-cinema with an age-old appreciation of what FrightFest can offer.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
6/10 90% Still/Born (2018) We liked some aspects of the film, but like most viewers at the festival and in subsequent screenings from now on, it falls short of the (birth) mark.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
7/10 No Score Yet The End? (In un giorno la fine) (2017) It's nice to welcome back a proper Italian zombie movie after years of watching Fulci re-issues via the Arrow Video label and Misischia's got the potential to become the new Argento as well.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
8/10 44% Victor Crowley (2017) Whilst some studios try and get some more mileage out of the classic horror icons, Crowley is a welcome original.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
8/10 82% Mayhem (2017) Although the blood flows as freely as it does in Wrong Turn 2, there is a purpose for it here, as well as the sort of style and substance that personified the likes of The Wolf Of Wall Street and American Psycho.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
5/10 15% Psychopaths (2017) Director Mickey Keating should be applauded for trying an ambitious idea, but perhaps he should focus on one particular story and build his characters within that. ‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
10/10 100% King Cohen: The Wild World of Filmmaker Larry Cohen (2017) King Cohen is a master class in documentary filmmaking. ‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
5/10 36% Jackals (2017) The cast try hard, but the audience will inevitably feel cheated because of the tried-and-tested format of such a film like this.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
7/10 80% Tragedy Girls (2017) Horror remains alive as ever and films like Tragedy Girls still need to be given the platform to be made.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
6/10 No Score Yet Adult Babies (2017) If you are prepared to stick out the meandering and confusing set up and can suspend your disbelief through to the second half, then you will be rewarded with a gung-ho climax that compensates.‐ Starburst
Read More | Posted Sep 5, 2017
7/10 No Score Yet Incontrol (2017) This film does suffer a little bit from where the line between truth and fantasy lies, but that is partly a challenge for an audience to debate where and with whom the experience is happening‐ Starburst
