HOFF 2011: JULIA'S EYES Review

Seldom has a film with as many impressive moments as the Guillermo Del Toro produced, Guillem Morales directed Julia's Eyes struggled so mightily to link them together in any sort of meaningful way. Designed as an atmospheric throwback to... More »

BEDEVILLED UK BluRay review

(A quick explanation: for my viewing of Optimum Home Entertainment's UK release of Bedevilled - available to buy on DVD and BluRay from 28th February 2011 - I've reprinted my earlier review from Manchester's Grimm Up North festival, slightly edited,... More »
  

Room for one more? It's Eight Rooks' TOP TEN FOR 2010

And to think I thought it would be a dull year. I might not have been able to join in the fun on the other side of the Atlantic, but the IFFR in Rotterdam (thanks to fellow Twitcher Ard... More »
  

LIFF 2010: THE DEAD review

The unique selling point (can we call it that?) for John and Howard Ford's The Dead - the zombie apocalypse hits Africa - is both its biggest strength and greatest weakness. It's a gorgeous, visually distinctive, creepy little road... More »
  

Fantastic Fest 2010: RED HILL Review

Red Hill is a straightforward modern revenge western that provides plenty of slick thrills and pacey action, with racial undertones and perhaps the most startling animal appearance of the year...if that's even a category. Police officer Shane Cooper (True... More »
  

TIFF 2010: MONSTERS review

Gareth Edwards' Monsters is a low-budget science fiction production with big ideas, shot in some of the poorest parts of the world, and a story that revolves around a catalysmic event that's changed the planet as we know it.... More »
  

Frightfest 2010: WE ARE WHAT WE ARE review

We Are What We Are is a film that tries to humanise seemingly ordinary people who do monstrous things, but it fails to do a good job of this for two main reasons; all of its subjects are neither... More »
  

Frightfest 2010: another MONSTERS review

(We like a few different editorial voices chiming in on a film here at Twitch, and my good friend Thomas - who was kind enough to drive me to London and get us a place to stay for Frightfest weekend... More »
  

Frightfest 2010: OUTCAST review

Colm McCarthy's Outcast is a low-budget British genre production that manages to be visually attractive, relatively naturalistic and features some wonderfully deft plotting which, while relatively predictable, still carries a refreshing level of moral ambiguity. It treats its fantasy... More »

Frightfest 2010: THE PACK review

Franck Richard's The Pack is grim. Perhaps too grim. It's a gleefully nasty, fairly distinctive little Gallic zombie flick that's beautifully shot and scored with some solid effects work and great performances. It's just the director arguably pushes the... More »
  

Frightfest 2010: 13 HRS review

Is 13 Hrs [sic] a film? It's a serious question. Jonathan Glendening's haunted house slasher flick feels more like a cheap and cheerful piece of late-night British genre television, only with more blood and guts thrown in than even... More »
  

Frightfest 2010: THE TORTURED review

If you could film a stereotypical right-wing American couple's worst nightmare, and the fallout that ensued, you'd have Robert Lieberman's The Tortured. It's an ugly, banal little production, part unrepentant torture porn, part clumsy, incomprehensible moralising, and attempting to... More »
