Film Review: Lovely, Dark, And Deep

If I were asked to define the ‘fear of getting lost’, I would only need to point towards supernatural backwoods horror LOVELY, DARK, AND DEEP. Written and Directed by Teresa Sutherland (writer of 2018 festival favourite THE WIND), the film captures you and whispers in your ear: “Where will you

Film Review: Fck’n Nuts

I won’t forget the value of short-form horror cinema any time soon thanks to Sam Fox‘s bizzaro land horror-comedy, FCK’N NUTS. Some horror shorts aim to show us how terrifying they would be as feature films; others leave you with an ambiguous ending that makes your imagination go to dark

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. This Shudder Original, directed by Josh Forbes, is goofy, but at times it’s kind of genius. It premieres on January 12. William Brown (Jonah

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. A meditative, indie creature feature with both painful body horror and poetic transformation. When an imperfect couple doesn’t communicate, their mattress gets left out in the rain. They

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. The film promises sex, drugs, & blood ‘n gore and certainly keeps its word. Chloe (Kimberly LaFerriere)

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: Huesera – The Bone Woman

HUESERA – THE BONE WOMAN, a Mexican-Peruvian pregnancy horror that twists the subgenre, leaving Rosemary’s Baby to pale in comparison. Writer-director Michelle Garza Cervera debuts a powerfully feminist horror film for her first feature, and it is terrifying! HUESERA arrives at the beginning of 2023, but even so, it may

Film Review: Skinamarink

SKINAMARINK has become a phenomenon since it first began screening. For many audiences, it is like nothing they have seen before. It is such a supremely experimental film that it is difficult to critique. It relies heavily on unconventional shots and editing that resist logic and continuity and focuses more
