Latest Reviews


I Trapped The Devil

Easily the most chilling film I've seen in 2019 so far...

Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed

Back of the Net

It's ironic that Back of the Net features a protagonist who operates life through the application of textbook formulas, because she's stuck in a film that's chosen to do the same.

Alex Lines, Film Inquiry

Master of Dark Shadows

Even the title of Master of Dark Shadows aims the documentary squarely at the large and enthusiastic audience, and this is the audience that is likely to enjoy it most. Nonetheless, this is an informative and engaging production.

Jim Dixon, Film Inquiry


Mr. Bean's Holiday

Not that we have come to expect much from Mr. Bean, but I think that this film isn't even up to the usual low standards. It is an immature film with the humour and story being totally silly...and not in a good way.

Carey-Ann Pawsey, Orca Sound

Bisbee '17

Story is told from several different perspectives to try and give a complete picture. Interesting even if you have never even heard of the town.

Carey-Ann Pawsey, Orca Sound

Scared Stiff (The Masterson Curse)

Even the quality Arrow Video release can't help this from being an altogether mediocre affair.

Adam Patterson, Film Pulse
