    Rabid

    ★★★★½

    It's taken me close to a week to put my thoughts to paper after witnessing the world premiere of RABID in front of a packed out IMAX screen at Frightfest. The atmosphere at Frightfest is always amongst the best, it contains excited genre film fans who are looking to get the next kick out of something spooky, intense, gruesome or brilliant (sometimes all 4) and when the turn came for RABID, atmosphere was at fever pitch. The whole audience was…

    One Cut of the Dead

    ★★★★★

    Every so often a film hits you right in the nose and demands your attention, focus and wants to be the center of your everything. ONE CUT OF THE DEAD is one such film.

    I don’t know anything about the behind the camera or crew work, I am simply a film fan who enjoys what is front of me, but that does not mean I can’t appreciate what goes on behind the scenes. OCOTD is like a sneak peek into…

    Through the Keyhole: An Interview with Sergio Martino

    An interesting half an hour spent with Sergio going through all things 'VICE'. Talks in depth about his adoration of Edwige Fenech stating how he felt she was best in her comedy roles but was able to adapt to anything, but had a naturally cheery outlook that suited her comedic roles best. Initially he wanted a 17/18 year old to play the role of Floriana but adapted for Fenech. Sergio mentions Fenech is like a sister to him and she…

    Babyteeth

    ★★★½

    This one hit hard I have to say. A terminally ill school girl with dysfunctional parents meets an older homeless drug addict who she forms an immediate bond with. The parents are hit by an immediate conundrum, allow this bond to continue and allow their daughter to be happy or stop it in its tracks and risk their daughter's heartbreak alongside her illness. Director Shannon Murphy ensures we get plenty of time to know all four central characters and portrays…

    Anna and the Apocalypse

    ★★★★★

    I love horror and I have a soft spot for musicals so when I heard about this film I was all sorts of intrigued. For some reason, I was expecting something fairly average and ended up with a gourmet meal. This is the quintessential genre Christmas film.

    ANNA AND THE APOCALYPSE is beautiful to look at, wonderful characters and sets and is an extreme comfort on the eye but that is only the beginning. This film is a musical so…

    Summer of 84

    ★★★★

    SUMMER OF 84 is the film the 2017 version of IT should have been between the Pennywise sections. The kids are brilliant in this, not over the top or over-dramatized, they feel entirely real and mischievous. They get comedy gold lines and enough solid interactions to make you feel fully invested in their journeys.

    The film itself feels like the STRANGER THINGS have moved into THE ‘BURBS with wonderful characters that haven’t felt so likeable since TURBO KID. It is…
