A Tale of Two Sisters - Fairytales have never been this Grimm

A Tale of Two Sisters (or Janghwa, Hongryeon which translates as Rose Flower, Red Lotus) is a South Korean chiller which, although typical of a lot of supernatural Korean horror, is a superbly crafted story with an almost fairytale-like undertone and a disturbing and unexpected twist . Directed by Ji-Woon Kim (who's only other notable horror that I... Click to read more "A Tale of Two Sisters (Janghwa, Hongryeon)"

Alucarda - They gave their souls to Hell... but the Devil wanted MORE!

Convents: they're all well and good, but a functional convent rarely makes for an entertaining movie. Luckily for us, we have an entire genre based on what happens when good nuns - or their young charges - go bad, and demented Mexican movie Alucarda (Sisters of Satan) must rank amongst the most grisly, camp and compelling takes on the theme. Here, ... Click to read more "Alucarda"

Apartment 1303 (1303 goshitsu) - Some rentals are too good to be true

When the made-up term "hair horror" is thrown at movie fanatics, brain scientists maybe estimate that 85% will immediately visualise the stereotypical Asian ghost, the wicked 10% visualise the ungroomed bush popular in 70s exploitation while 5% insist that horror is all around us and we should combat this by smoking pot at music festivals (statisti...

The Beyond - Behind this doorway lie the terrifying and unspeakable secrets of hell.

Lucio Fulci has definitely created an Italian zombie movie classic with The Beyond. This movie is much more than your traditional slow moving zombie flick and at this moment in time I would rate it as Fulci's best zombie movie.The movie begins in Louisiana, 1927, when a group of vigilantes break into the "seven doors hotel" and drag the occupant of...

The Boogeyman - The most terrifying nightmare of childhood is about to return!

Another movie on the "Why the hell was this classed as a Video Nasty?" list is Ulli Lommel's The Boogeyman. Admittedly The Boogeyman is a movie from 1980 and was probably quite extreme compared to UK Saturday evening TV but, compared to some of the cannibal movies and exploitation flicks on the DPP video nasty banned list, it is simply a low budget...

The Cabin in the Woods (2012)

The Cabin in the Woods - If you hear a strange sound outside... have sex.

The Cabin in the Woods is a rarity in modern horror in that it gets a lot right. Directed by Drew Goddard (who also wrote the movie alongside Joss Whedon), it is apparent that his time writing and producing TV was well spent, mastering the art before delving into film. Whedon's influence is also very noticeable within the execution of the film, the... Click to read more "The Cabin in the Woods"
