Film Review: Destroy All Neighbours

SHUDDER kicks off 2024 with comedy-horror DESTROY ALL NEIGHBOURS: one man’s blood splattered and viscera filled journey to realising he’s been kind of an asshole lately.

Film Review: The Fifth Thoracic Vertebra

Did you know we each have 33 vertebrae? You do now, thanks to Park Sye-young’s first feature: fantasy-horror THE FIFTH THORACIC VERTEBRA.

Film Review: Do Not Disturb

DO NOT DISTURB is a blood-soaked Canadian horror film from writer-director John Ainslie. If you’re keen to spiral down a psychotropic rabbit hole, then DO NOT DISTURB will certainly take you with it.

Film Review: Abruptio

ABRUPTIO writer-director Evan Marlowe clearly had a vision- a fantastically absurdist vision: A hyperviolent movie entirely enacted by puppets. The result is a film that has been seven years in the making, an insane mix of 70s exploitation and 2000s-era action movie with actors who are lifelike but not quite

Film Review: Skinamarink

SKINAMARINK has become a phenomenon since it first began screening. For many audiences, it is like nothing they have seen before.
