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"

Cannibal Apocalypse - In the jungle, or in the the city, still they must EAT!

Cannibal Apocalypse (Apocalypse domaini) is a creative cannibal addition to the DPP Video Nasty list that manages to shock without the need for jungle tribes, national geographic nakedness or cruelty to animals. What it delivers is a nice storyline about Vietnam veterans inflicted with a taste for flesh and although there is not much apocalyptical ...

Demons 2 - The Nightmare Returns

Demons 2: The Nightmare Is Back (Dèmoni 2: L'incubo ritorna) is pretty much an Italian zombie flick but with the undead referred to a demons and possessing a little more flair than the shambling gut-piles we are used to from the Italian reanimated population. Written by Dario Argento and directed by Lamberto Bava, Demons 2 has all of the cheesy pop... Click to read more "Demons 2 (Dèmoni 2: L'incubo ritorna)"

28 Days Later (2002)

His fear began when he woke up alone. His terror began when he realised he wasn't.

29 Days Later - His fear began when he woke up alone. His terror began when he realised he wasn't.

In 2002 British director Danny Boyle proved that the concept of a zombie movie can be updated and used to scare a whole new generation of horror fans. The notion of a fast moving zombie rather than the slow shambling undead that we have come to expect is not a new idea and was first noticeably used in Dan O'Bannon's The Return of the Living Dead in...
