The Damned

The Damned is half in English and half in Spanish horror films. It makes the film just feel awkward and the concept was decent but it just was terrible overall. The plot felt like it was crawling for most of the movie. The character development wasn’t really there. The only thing good about this film was Sophia Myles (Underworld) was in the film. From there the movie was just too gory and there wasn’t enough of a well formed idea to me to care about the story line. If you…

Hush

The psychopath who traps people in their home to torture them is nothing new. However the way Hush works around this concept is brilliant. It felt fresh and original which made me sit on the edge of my seat wondering what happens next. I will say there are some scenes with intense strobe flashes so if you’re prone to that just be aware it will happen. Honestly this film has to be up there for me I would put it on the same level as Torment and The Strangers. The…

Secret Village

Secret Village is like a bad version of the remake of The Wicker Man. A woman has come to a remote location to find out what happened during the Salem witch trials and various types of plagues. From there the plot becomes super predictable and that makes the film drag on. The acting feels unnatural and character development isn’t really there.  I felt like the movie pacing was unbelievably slow. The special effects in the film are low budget and fit the movie.  If you’re looking for a  D rate…

Dartmoor Killing

Dartmoor Killing is an interesting film because of the set up and delivery of the plot. It first felt like The Awakening with all the flashbacks, but then turned into Oldboy. The psychopath in the film does a great job at being cold and tactical then completely terrifying. However the character development leaves a lot to be desired. I struggled to care for the characters and what happened in the past because of their actions before the story came to fruition. For most of the film the plot was generic…

Let Us Prey

What if you took The Ninth Gate and mixed it with The Traveler? You get something along the lines of Let Us Prey. It is a surreal film to watch since the plot is almost the same as The Traveler because it deals with several slight twists which made the movie interesting. It is really dark and there is a decent amount of blood in the film. If you don’t like a lot of blood in you film I wouldn’t suggest this title. Liam Cunningham is the standout star in…

Mercy

Mercy is a psychopath horror film that is a Netflix original with quite a few twists. The film has some interesting parts like showing multiple perspectives on the same scenario while still keeping the viewers attention with smaller details. Unfortunately it couldn’t save it from a rather tedious and uncaring plot. The reason for this was the characters depth wasn’t there. The left me with a filling that there was so much potential but it was wasted. If you like psychopath movies and want a unique twist on the genre…

Visions

Visions felt like a mix of The Shining and Rosemary’s Baby. It was strangely familiar film with slightly different plot line. I found myself both loving this film and found it boring. It’s boring because the plot was familiar and it made it made it tougher to stay immersed in the film. Several scenes where not shocking and scary because of that. At the same time though it is great because it follows a similar line to these two classic horror films.There is also a cameo appearance of Jim Parsons….

I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House

This film is interesting and has great depth. The soundtrack is eerie and really helps ties the film together, it reminded me of It Follows. I wanted to love this film but I found myself just liking the film. The reason for that is the pacing of the film was too slow. Several scenes felt like they dragged on due to the slow moves of the characters or long staring sequences just really detract from the overall creepy factor of the film. It’s a good film and if you’ve seen…

Let’s Be Evil

This is one of the most creative and enjoyable first person horror films I’ve ever seen. The special effects on this film are incredible. The plot is original and creepy. This sci-fi horror film is a must watch. There are so many levels to this film that it merits watching again. Let’s Be Evil  is what the first person horror genre needed to bring it new life. I normally hate first person films, but this one is fantastic. The acting is great and helps bring the world and characters to…

Curse Of The Swamp Creature

Curse Of The Swamp Creature is a sci-fi/horror film from 1966. The plot while decent leaves a lot to be desired. For one the movie is fairly slow pace and I found myself laughing more at how ridiculous some scenes are. At times the lines feel forced leaving little attachment to any character. The best part of the movie was the special effects. They are comical and makes the film at little more bearable. If you want a bad sci-fi horror film this is the one for you. Bottom Line…
