Oculus (2014)

Oculus11

Anyone who’s hung around Anythinghorror long enough knows that Scott and I are staunch supporters of independent horror filmmakers. Low in budget, they often compensate with original, inventive ideas, stories, atmosphere and direction, and the best of them can stand head and shoulders above many of the generic studio offerings out there. Back in 2011, Scott … Continue reading

Popcorn (1991)

P1

True Believers, I realise I might be older than Methuselah or even Madonna compared to some of you, but I’m not *that* old. I may have been old enough to have seen STAR WARS when it first came out, but I’m not old enough to have been around for the gimmicky horror and science fiction … Continue reading

The Car (1977)

Car 13

Okay, another blast from the past. And what a blast! I saw this in 1977 when I was eleven, and went to a drive-in. No, Uncle Deggsy wasn’t a pre-teen Fonzie, taking chicks on dates on his Big Wheel. No, the parents took my sister and I there, where we played in the playground for … Continue reading

Trailer for Leprechaun: Origins Drops. And, Um…

Lep Origins

Well… What can I say? I’ve watched it, rewatched it, and it, um… Some background first, perhaps. Anyway, LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS will be the seventh in the franchise, and an apparent reboot which usually means taking a character back to its roots, hence the title. Warwick Davis managed quite well in the first six movies, but … Continue reading

Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977)

SatEotT21

Full disclosure from the start: this is, for the most part, not a good film – at least, not if you’re over the age of eleven. I was that age when the movie came out, several weeks after a little number called STAR WARS appeared. I desperately wanted to see STAR WARS, without knowing anything … Continue reading

Patrick (2013)

Australia’s a funny old country. They have the most beautiful beaches in the world, their tiniest wildlife can kill three grown men with just a dirty look, their money is colour-coded and waterproof for when you’re drunk and in the water (it’s true!), and their lager can double as an anaesthetic. Area-wise, it’s about the … Continue reading

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014)

PATMO9

When I was younger and still an avid collector of Marvel Comics, I would wait with bated breath the Annuals of my favourite comics; for only twice the price, I could get double the action! I sort of lost interest when Marvel began doing Big Events that crossed over nineteen or twenty different annuals, and … Continue reading

Call of Cthulhu (2005)

kpzddhihzwmvbig

If you lived in New York City, you might be familiar with Channel 7, WABC-TV. And if you lived there in the 60s or 70s, you might remember the 4:30 Movie, when they would, well, show movies. At 4:30. Hence the name. What made them special for me was that they would often do themed … Continue reading

Knights of Badassdom (2014)

KoB Banner

Confession time: I’ve never played Dungeons and Dragons. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to, but I was a kid in the pre-Internet days so never knew who played it in my neighbourhood, and the neighbours’ kids were so straight-laced and vanilla they’d make fun of guys who had hair long enough to touch their … Continue reading

Trick or Treat (1986)

TOT Banner

(This is hopefully going to be the first in a series of reviews of movies from the 70s and 80s, part of a small collection of horror and science fiction movies on videotape that I bought at a flea market before Christmas, some of which I haven’t seen since they first came out) Horror has … Continue reading
