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

Frightfest 2010: F Review

Johannes Roberts' F is a masterful, fresh take on the sub-genre of 'hoodie horror', featuring be-hooded kids laying siege to a school after hours. It's not the first British film to demonise today's youth, with the likes of Eden Lake... More »
