Rating Title/Year Author
The Wave (2019) Joey Keogh How much you enjoy The Wave will depend on your tolerance for smash cuts, wild detours, and the dismantling of previously established rules of time travel. EDIT
Posted Jan 15, 2020
Madness in the Method (2019) Joey Keogh Messy, tonally inconsistent, offensive, and ultimately pointles EDIT
Posted Jan 6, 2020
Red Letter Day (2019) Joey Keogh The familial dynamic... is so strong that many of the story's obvious faults can be forgiven just by virtue of the fact we enjoy watching these people fight for their lives. EDIT
Posted Jan 6, 2020
Antrum: The Deadliest Film Ever Made (2018) Joey Keogh Antrum is pure folk horror eeriness, right down to the brilliantly off kilter score, and has the potential to be a major cult hit, given its ingenious hook. EDIT
Posted Jan 6, 2020
Automation (2019) Joey Keogh For all its allusions to Robocop, Automation is its own beast; funny, scrappy, and loaded with tons of heart. EDIT
Posted Jan 6, 2020
Black Christmas (2019) Joey Keogh A darkly satisfying festive surprise. ...A rallying cry for all of us to be fighters, to stop just accepting that this is how things are, and to take control of our destiny. EDIT

7/10 Trick (2019) Joey Keogh The film is a bit all over the place at times, but it's also quite charming. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2019
8/10 Spiral (2019) Joey Keogh Comparisons to Get Out notwithstanding, this is one of the most powerful, socially conscious, and memorable horror movies of the year. EDIT
Posted Oct 30, 2019
2/10 () Joey Keogh Gothic Harvest is like a rejected concept for an Avenged Sevenfold video. EDIT
Posted Oct 15, 2019
7/10 Deadcon (2019) Joey Keogh Although Deadcon is light on violence and gore, the movie maintains a strong atmosphere of unease throughout. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2019
7/10 Witches in the Woods (2019) Joey Keogh It's a well-told story of betrayal, survival, and personal responsibility with a darkly historical twist that's cleverly unraveled in a single, snowy setting. EDIT
Posted Oct 14, 2019
6.5/10 Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015) Joey Keogh Insidious 3 mostly works quite well. It easily outdoes the dire second installment, ramping up the tension from the outset and refusing to let go. EDIT
Posted Oct 11, 2019
9/10 Bliss (2019) Joey Keogh An utterly involving, frightening, and totally thrilling deep-dive into the dark underbelly of Los Angeles via a fierce female lead, Bliss is one of the most fascinating and essential horror movies of the year. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
Life (2017) Joey Keogh Life's true, B-movie genius, lies in its ability to consistently put its ostensibly super-smart group of scientists and engineers in real, considerable danger. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
8/10 Trespassers (2018) Joey Keogh [Trespassers] maintains an impressively tense, eerie atmosphere throughout... It plays with our expectations, surprising us with each shocking new development. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
8/10 Daniel Isn't Real (2019) Joey Keogh One of the most gorgeous and compelling horror movies of the year. EDIT
Posted Oct 10, 2019
6/10 3rd Night (2017) Joey Keogh [F]or the most part 3rd Night is a decent little thriller that never betrays its low budget limitations. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
4/10 Truth or Dare (2017) Joey Keogh Truth Or Dare is too safe to really commit to the darkness and instead leaves one wondering why it really needs to exist in the first place. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
8/10 Downrange (2017) Joey Keogh It's ruthless, efficient, and endlessly clever. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
7/10 Gwen (2018) Joey Keogh Gwen is all atmosphere, a chilly feeling permeating through every corner of its expertly-curated frame. EDIT
Posted Oct 9, 2019
4/10 Arbor Demon (2016) Joey Keogh By the end, Enclosure has far outstayed its welcome, lumbered with a decent concept that is neither fully developed, nor has enough scare potential to properly sell it. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
6/10 Mercy (2016) Joey Keogh For the most part, Mercy is a tense, often very frightening little home invasion chiller that makes great use of a terrific cast, isolated setting and some neat twists on the sub-genre. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
5/10 Wrong Trail (2016) Joey Keogh The body horror aspect of Downhill is strong enough on its own, but stuck in a movie that throws everything into the pot and stirs it all up just to see how it tastes, it's not hugely memorable. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
2/10 Broken (2016) Joey Keogh [Broken's] a movie that doesn't work either as a grimy kitchen sink thriller or a gut-wrenching, realistic drama. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
3/10 Ibiza Undead (2016) Joey Keogh It isn't particularly funny and the horror elements aren't strong enough to justify it as a real zombie movie. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
9/10 Beyond the Gates (2016) Joey Keogh Beyond The Gates is colourful and lively but it's packed with great spooks, especially when the very literal gates appear down in the basement. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
2/10 We Are the Flesh (2016) Joey Keogh There's nothing realistic about these scenes, nothing new or potentially boundary-pushing. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
4/10 My Father Die (2016) Joey Keogh Unfortunately, there's not much of a story here outside of the ill-advised revenge plot we've seen a million times over. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
2/10 Blood Feast (2016) Joey Keogh Blood Feast 2016 has no reason to exist beyond the source material. And even then, it's a stretch. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
8/10 Found Footage (2016) Joey Keogh Found Footage 3D is just a terrifically funny, brilliantly meta horror-comedy that manages to somehow hit all the beats of a great found footage movie, too. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
6/10 Morgan (2016) Joey Keogh With a cast this good, it'd be near impossible for Morgan to be anything less than gripping. And it is, for the most part, establishing its central mystery, and odd tone, right off the bat. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
7/10 Let Her Out (2016) Joey Keogh [Let Her Out's] an intoxicating, gory and hugely involving exercise in body horror and female empowerment that could reasonably stand alongside the likes of Carrie. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
8/10 31 (2016) Joey Keogh [T]his is relentlessly entertaining, brilliantly bloody, carnie carnage with a career-defining performance from Richard Brake at its heart. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
8/10 Night of Something Strange (2016) Joey Keogh [T]hey don't really make 'em like this anymore, which is one of the many reasons Night Of Something Strange is so special. It's queasily, disgustingly brilliant, yet another argument for practical over CGI and it's funny as all hell. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
8/10 Johnny Frank Garrett's Last Word (2016) Joey Keogh This is an incredibly atmospheric movie, dynamically shot and tightly edited so it never quite settles into a groove-such is its power. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
5/10 Lake Nowhere (2014) Joey Keogh Still, in these slasher-parched times, it's nice to see a movie that can both pay homage and forge its own bloody path. Lake Nowhere may only get 51 minutes to make its mark, but it leaves a lasting impression. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
9/10 Harpoon (2019) Joey Keogh It's brilliantly conceived, frequently shocking, and boasts three equally strong performances that make us want to spend more, rather than less, time stranded at sea with these three brats. EDIT
Posted Oct 8, 2019
10/10 The Devil's Candy (2015) Joey Keogh [The Devil's Candy] manages to be moving, involving, terrifying, funny, sad and instantly memorable - often all at once. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
6/10 The Mind's Eye (2015) Joey Keogh In a world of CGI mush, endless retreads and overcooked posturing, The Mind's Eye provides a welcome respite with its classic, old-school charm. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
3/10 The ReZort (2015) Joey Keogh The Rezort, much like its zombies, seems to be missing several important parts. Those that still exist don't come together to form anything resembling a coherent plot and, more importantly, they are inescapably dull. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
8/10 The Windmill Massacre (2016) Joey Keogh It's great to see a real, old-school flick of this nature, lovingly made and presented, with a real understanding of how these movies operate and why they were so popular in the first place. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
5/10 Busanhaeng (2016) Joey Keogh There is much to enjoy here, but is there ever really any justification for a two-hour long zombie movie? Train To Busan argues not. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
9/10 The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) Joey Keogh The Autopsy Of Jane Doe is a terrifically, consistently scary horror movie. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
5/10 Bad Kids of Crestview Academy (2017) Joey Keogh Bad Kids Of Crestview Academy is bright, obnoxious, over the top and super silly but it's far from the worst way to spend a couple of hours. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
2/10 The Bye Bye Man (2017) Joey Keogh Not only can the movie not keep track of its own mythology, every cliché is trotted out, and it seems to be borrowing from anywhere and everywhere too. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
8/10 () Joey Keogh Pool Party Massacre more than delivers-the characters are so hideously self-absorbed they don't even notice anyone is dead. Meanwhile, the payoff to the whole thing is original, clever and super-funny. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
6/10 Here Alone (2016) Joey Keogh [T]he film is considerably compelling, the performances strong across the board, and the action (or lack thereof) is captured beautifully. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
7/10 The Blackcoat's Daughter (2015) Joey Keogh [O]ne of the most original, and strongly female-led horror movies of the year thus far. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
8/10 Prevenge (2016) Joey Keogh [Prevenge's] a singular work, from a brilliant, clever, and hugely exciting new voice in genre film. EDIT
Posted Oct 7, 2019
7/10 Dead Awake (2016) Joey Keogh Dead Awake is slight but scary, simple but tough and, at times, crawlingly creepy. Fear your bed. EDIT
