  • Review: The House With A Clock In Its Walls is a fun waste of time

    Movie Review | Ali Gray | 18th September 2018

    Ugh. September. The worst month by some distance. Nothing good has ever happened in September. I checked history, which verified and confirmed: September is a dud. All the blockbusters are a distant memory, the big Christmas movies are too far away (see also: Christmas) and even the tiresome slog that is Oscar season has yet to get underway. That just leaves shitty geriaction movies where Denzel Washington kills people, horror movies that are too crap to save for Halloween and oddball movies that genuinely don't fit in anywhere else in the calendar. Mercifully, that last sub-genre occasionally yields surprising results, which is where The House With A Clock In Its Walls chimes in: it's not quite enough to salvage the September cesspool, but it is a fun kids' fantasy that does just about enough to distract you from the backslide into the arse end of the year.

  • Hostel

    Movie Review | Andy | 27th March 2006

    Eli Roth's first offering since Cabin Fever follows the latest trend in horror to replace fear and jumps with sadism and brutality, to eschew creeping menace and tension for dismemberment and sex. But, much like its central characters, Hostel is low on style, wit and grace and instead serves up a platter of tits, blood and guts...

  • Cabin Fever

    Movie Review | Ali | 12th September 2004

    "This terrible, terrible trend started in American horror in the late nineties, where television actresses came over to horror films. They'd be fine and all, but when it came to doing a sex scene, they were like 'I'm not going to do it because I have a young audience.' So you got these neutered down, castrated pussy-ass horror...
