Film4 FrightFest 2014: The Top 5

Film4 FrightFest 2014: The Top 5

Because FrightFest was so awesome this year that I refuse to let it end (and also because after it it did end I was too spent to write it until now) I present to you my top five films from this year’s event. Picking a Top 5 was hard damn work this year. The line-up Gods and the great taste of the organisers conspired to create a near wall-to-wall...

Interview: Hans Petter Moland, director of In Order of Disappearance

With the release of Hans Petter Moland’s Norwegian thriller In Order of Disappearance upon us, I caught up with the director earlier this year to discuss his time working with Stellan Skarsgård, as well as the possibility of an English language remake. How did you get Stellan Skarsgård on board? You’ve worked with him on Aberdeen and A...

Review: Pride – “One of the best British films released in the last decade”

Review: Pride – “One of the best British films released in the last decade”

Much like the megaphone van logo, and the protagonists’ bold personalities, Pride is a film deservedly making noise. Not only is it one of the best British films released in the last decade, it shows us an unbelievable – yet true – story of a band of lesbian and gay activists willing to donate their time and efforts to help miner unionists...

Review: Joe – “Captures the world with a sense of dark mysticism”

Review: Joe – “Captures the world with a sense of dark mysticism”

Nicolas Cage is a wonderful actor. To say this, you are either a fan of irony or a deliberate contrarian. This critic is a bit of both… so to re-phrase: Nicolas Cage can be a wonderful actor. The baroque star has fallen beyond mainstream critical acceptability of late and landed firmly into the dominion of Internet myth and general piss-take (Nicolas Cage...

Zack Snyder shared an official image of the Batmobile

Zack Snyder shared an official image of the Batmobile

Yesterday saw some set photos from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. They gave us a great look at the new Batmobile. Today, director Zack Snyder shared this new image of the Batmobile and I still think it looks fantastic. Clay Enos took the photo. It will be interesting to see what Ben Affleck’s Batman will do with those guns on the front. Mind you,...

Review: The Guest

Review: The Guest

Interrupting the end-of-summer plainness like an ice bucket over the head is The Guest, a fun, nasty little slice of nuclear family devastation. It’s a tight, black domestic thriller from the seasoned horror partnership of Adam Winberg and Simon Barrett. Like the duo’s previous film, the rudimentary but spirited slasher You’re Next, it’s a genre piece...
