Infestation (2009) Review

It’s hard to become enthused about another blood and chuckle fest, the sheer quantity of these movies is enough to cause a coronary embolism. Many filmmakers are yet to realise that comedy is hard and horror is even harder, the combination of the two has to be intricately balanced and carefully crafted.Read More

District 9 (2009) Review

Snoop Dogg’s Hood of Horror (2006)

There is something undeniably endearing about Snoop Doggy Dog, from his tendency to use ‘izzle’ as a suffix, to his relentless and successful domination of every art form and merchandising opportunity conceivable, it’s not hard to see why he is such an enduring figure in our culture. Conclusively, it only makes sense to see grand […]Read More
