The 'burbs (1989)   3/53/53/53/53/5

101 mins     Comedy, Horror, Thriller      

Sitting down to watch Tom Hanks in "The 'burbs" something struck me straight off and that it has a slight similarity to "Desperate Housewives". That may seem a bit strange but "The 'burbs" is about the men in a small street w...

100 Bloody Acres

100 Bloody Acres (2012)   3/53/53/53/53/5

91 mins     Comedy, Horror      

As a rule I like Australian Horror comedies, there is something about the mix of spurting blood with that straight, almost matter of fact comedy which makes me smile especially when you toss in some quirky for good measure. U...

2-Headed Shark Attack

2-Headed Shark Attack (2012)   1/51/51/51/51/5

88 mins     Action , Horror, Sci-Fi      

I want to thank the people of "The Asylum" who are behind "2-Headed Shark Attack" and many after equally badly named movies because as someone who watches a lot of movies once in a while I just want something unapologetically...

20 Million Miles to Earth

20 Million Miles to Earth (1957)   3/53/53/53/53/5

82 mins     Fantasy, Horror, Sci-Fi      

When "20 Million Miles to Earth" was released back in 1957 it was science fiction fantasy, delivering the horror of monsters from such far flung places as Venus. Watching "20 Million Miles to Earth" now it's more science fict...

2001 Maniacs (2001)   3/53/53/53/53/5

87 mins     Comedy, Horror      

It's Friday night, kick back order the pizza, get a few cold ones out the fridge and slap on "2001 Maniacs" as this remake of "Two Thousand Maniacs!" is perfect viewing for the end of the week when you just want a movie which...

2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams

2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams (2010)   2/52/52/52/52/5

84 mins     Comedy, Horror      

When I watched "2001 Maniacs" I basically said it was the equivalent of a teen sex comedy combined with the gore of a teen horror movie. The thing is that having watched the sequel "2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams" it makes "2...

28 Days Later

28 Days Later (2002)   4/54/54/54/54/5

113 mins     Horror, Thriller      

To be honest I am not a huge fan of all Danny Boyle's movies, many of which I find enjoyable but not as great as some proclaim. In a lot of ways I find Boyle's work to be similar to that of Tarantino's, in the fact that even ...

28 Weeks Later

28 Weeks Later (2007)   3/53/53/53/53/5

99 mins     Action , Horror

30 Days of Night

30 Days of Night (2007)   3/53/53/53/53/5

113 mins     Horror, Thriller      

They say two out of three isn't bad but when it comes to "30 Days of Night" that one out of three it misses is pivotal. Okay so let me explain "30 Days of Night" has a clever storyline with a North Alaska town coming under at...

5ive Girls

5ive Girls (2006)   2/52/52/52/52/5

95 mins     Horror, Thriller      

I could start this review by mentioning "The Craft" because even before watching "5ive Girls" you are reminded of it due to these school girls with special powers. But unlike "The Craft" "5ive Girls" fails to spend time estab...

A Field in England

A Field in England (2013)   2/52/52/52/52/5

90 mins     Drama, Horror      

Yes "A Field in England" certainly sounds out there and unfortunately for me it is too unconventional. It is whilst watching this that I realised that whilst I am happy to watch those movies which break the mainstream rules o...

A Near Death Experience

A Near Death Experience (2008)   3/53/53/53/53/5

89 mins     Drama, Horror, Mystery, TV Movie      

The daft thing is that when it comes to "A Near Death Experience", which is also known as "Voices", the whole supernatural, I see dead people thing is only there as a mechanism for another story where a woman ends up in dange...

A Nightmare on Elm Street

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)   3/53/53/53/53/5

91 mins     Horror      

It's strange, as a movie fan I have never been a huge horror fan and as such in my teens I didn't care to watch "A Nightmare on Elm Street" yet thanks to it's iconic status I knew so much about it. So now over 25 years after ...

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987)   3/53/53/53/53/5

96 mins     Fantasy, Horror, Thriller      

To be honest I thought "A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2" sucked, lacking in so many areas and so much it took a lot to watch "A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors" as I expected more pointless, unimaginative nonsense....

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988)   3/53/53/53/53/5

93 mins     Fantasy, Horror      

It would be fair to say that the "Nightmare on Elm Street" movies are like a rollercoaster, every good movie is followed by a bad movie. So whilst "A Nightmare on Elm Street" was good "A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2" was te...

A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child

A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child (1989)   2/52/52/52/52/5

89 mins     Fantasy, Horror      

The first 4 "Nightmare on Elm Street" movies were a rollercoaster which went good, bad, good and then bad again so theoretically the 5th movie "A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child" should once more be good. Unfortunate...

A Perfect Getaway

A Perfect Getaway (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

98 mins     Action , Horror      

What a fun bit of adult horror, I say adult horror because "A Perfect Getaway" plays out like your typical teen horror as we have a couple going hiking on a Hawaiian island only to learn that there have been murders and they ...
