FILM REVIEW: Anna and the Apocalypse (2017)

Following the success of his short film Zombie Musical in 2011, the late Ryan McHenry(responsible for the ‘Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal’ vines) began developing a feature length version for his debut. He sadly passed away in 2015 while the film, co-written with Alan McDonald, was still under development. John McPhail was brought in as director and Anna and the Apocalypse was completed.

FILM REVIEW: Halloween (2018)

The franchise that, much like its villain, just won’t die, returns for the fortieth anniversary of the original. This is the eleventh Halloween film to be produced. That’s right, the eleventh.

Laurie and Michael Myers are not siblings, Laurie isn’t dead, but she is still traumatised forty years on from that fateful night. Continue reading FILM REVIEW: Halloween (2018)

FILM REVIEW: Hereditary (2018)

With promises to be the year’s, if not the decade’s, scariest film, Hereditary wasn’t the best film for a small cinema in Western Australia to accidentally show a trailer for at a screening of Peter Rabbit. But it happened, and let’s face it: it’s kind of hilarious, childhood nightmares aside. Nevertheless, this film will likely be remembered for much more. And anyone who watches it may remain forever freaked out by the sound of a tongue-click. (Children clip-clopping around pretending to be horses can BACK THE HELL UP). Continue reading FILM REVIEW: Hereditary (2018)

FILM REVIEW: Truth or Dare (2018)

What better game to play when you’re a young drunk college student than an old-fashioned game of Truth or Dare? But don’t think the dares will be solely related to sex, nudity or general humiliation, and the truths about little more than crushes. It’s time to GO HARD OR GO HOME. And by that I mean die.
