And so we come to it. The FINAL film of Frightfest Glasgow 2012. It’s the film that I am most looking forward to and weirdly, it isn’t even a horror film.
Now, I think it’s fair to say that high rise flats have…something…of a bad reputation. It’s a sad fact. In my experience, they are, at [...]
Aliens. What are your thoughts? Do you believe? There have been numerous reports of crashed alien space-craft and several different alien autopsy videos, most debunked as hoaxes and hokum, though doubt still circles around a few.
But here’s a question. If you were to sit down with an alien, what would you say? Odds are that [...]
Ah Spring. The season of rebirth. The season that wipes away the ravages of Winter and kick starts the cycle of life again.
Spring has already played a large part in horror. The residents of Summerisle incinerate their Wicker Man to appease the Gods to ensure a healthy crop of apples the following season. Every 23rd [...]

So, Doug Aarniokoski’s The Day might just be the film for him…

Australia. One of the largest, least densely populated countries on Earth.
Sadly, if you talk about Australian entertainment to most people in the UK they immediately think of nothing more than Steve Irwin, Neighbours and Kylie Minogue. At a push, maybe Mad Max. A damn shame that, as Australia has produced some rather fine horror films in recent [...]
Found footage. The bugbear of the modern horror fan.
This cinéma vérité style of film-making is nothing particularly new but lately, it has become the latest “go-to” craze for many, many horror directors.
