Film4 FrightFest announces line-up for Halloween 2015 event


James Purefoy and Olga Kurylenko lead guest line-up

A totally shocking threequel, a haunted house of horrors, demonic possession, claustrophobic tank terror, a head-spinning brutal thriller and a surprise movie…it can only be the Film4 FrightFest Halloween event, which is back at the Prince Charles Cinema on Saturday 24 Oct with six brand new movies, including two World premieres, a European and two UK premieres.

Next up is the UK Premiere of THE VATICAN TAPES, a dynamic, unusual and thrilling exorcism shocker by Crank director Mark Neveldine.

Our second World Premiere is BELLY OF THE BULLDOG, directed by Nick Gillespie, whose past … Continue reading

Angelic Wolves (2015) Short Film Review

aw1Angelic Wolves (2015)

Director: Dark Libra

Starring: Anna Crysell, Braeden Baade, CJ Forst

Runtime – 25 Minutes

“So you have a thing for trees do ya?”

Angelic Wolves feels like a student film. Which isn’t bad. Student films are necessary for film makers to learn and grow. But it does have some awkward moments and clumsy story telling.

Johnny (Baade) and Eve (Cryselle) have a meet cute in the woods over trees and Johnny’s supernatural speed. They talk for a few minutes and Johnny reveals that he’s a werewolf. But werewolves are actually angelic guardians of the wild and he only kills arsonists intent on doing harm to the forest he guards. It’s nice spin on werewolves. There are also some very nice scenes and shots of the woods. The actors are okay. None of them really stand out. And there are a couple of laugh-out-loud gore gags that were pretty funny.

Still, there are plenty of problems with the execution. The black and white is overexposed. The film might have been converted from color to black and white or just on the wrong setting. The faces of the actors are … Continue reading

Last Girl Standing (2015) Review

lgs1Last Girl Standing (USA, 2015)

Dir: Benjamin R. Moody

Starring: Akasha Villalobos, Danielle Evon Ploeger, Brian Villalobos

UK Release TBC

Plot: After surviving the brutal massacre of The Hunter, a slasher movie style masked killer who wiped out all her friends, Camryn (Villalobos) is just trying to get on with her life. She struggles to move on, avoiding making friends at the dry cleaners she works at, and still living out of boxes at home. That is until Nick (Villalobos) starts working the counter at the dry cleaners. The two end up getting closer and Camryn meets Nick’s friends. Her new friends are in trouble though when Camryn starts seeing The Hunter stalking them and her fears that history might be repeating it self start to mount.

Last Girl Standing takes the archetypal Final Girl of the slasher movie sub-genre and shows us just what happens to that girl when she doesn’t find herself in a franchise of 5 or more films (How will she ever get to go to space if not for some seventh instalment?) and instead goes down a route of Survivor’s Guilt and PTSD. Another horror that … Continue reading

Whisper (2015) Short Film Review

whisperposterWhisper (Short 2015)

Director: Jo Lewis

Writer: Stewart Pringle

Starring: Imogen Doel

Runtime: 12min

Website –

Synopsis: A young women heads to see a seaside cabin in an attempt to end her crippling addiction.

Whisper opens with an unknown girl (Imogen Doel) floating in the sea and then up a rough old path in the sunny country side, is she on holiday or a short weekend break? We are left speculating. Then I remember this is a horror drama and I’m immediately thrown into suspense. I made sure not to read up on this beautiful short prior to screening, so I had no idea what to expect, which is a feeling you don’t often experience with horror these days.

whisper1As the story progresses the camera grows ever closer, very subtly, an induced claustrophobia, literal cabin fever begins to set in. We soon learn this was not a holiday.

Heroin addiction is quite heavy subject matter and is certainly not made light of here, the sickness, confusion, the lines between reality and hallucinations are all blurred due … Continue reading

The Passage aka Lemon Tree Passage (2014) DVD Review

passage1The Passage aka Lemon Tree Passage (2014)

Director: David Campbell

Writers: Erica Brien, David Campbell

Stars: Jessica Tovey, Nicholas Gunn, Pippa Black

UK DVD Release – 5th October 2015 from Metrodome UK

A group of American backpackers on vacation in Australia are befriended by two local guys and introduced to the “true story” of Lemon Tree Passage – a remote stretch of road that is haunted by the ghost of a motorcyclist who appears to warn drivers to slow down. Doubtful of the legitimacy of the tale they decide to put it to the test and go for a late night spin along the famed passage. Of course, they end up with much more than they bargained for and are killed off one by one in violent fashion by a mysterious malevolent entity. An entity that is definitely not there to discourage reckless driving.

The urban legend of the ghostly motorcyclist on Lemon Tree Passage is actually true… to a degree. Apparently it became somewhat of an internet phenomenon a few years ago when a YouTube video of a mysterious headlight following behind a car and then vanishing in to thin … Continue reading
