Festival goers witnessed its exciting and diverse programming, from gorey exploitation horror to high-concept Science Fiction; MARS EXPRESS absolutely defines the latter.

In its second year running, Sydney Science fiction Film Festival recently finished up its four-day cinema run. For Australians, access to the festival’s films is not over; the festival is continuing virtually on-demand until the 25th of November. As the year draws to a close and I get ready to

Whoever said horror films can’t be smart, obviously hasn’t seen Brandon Cronenbergs’ latest film POSSESSOR UNCUT. I was lucky enough to catch this artistic bloodfest as a part of Telluride Horror Show’s closing night. Telluride always brings the heat on the final day of the fest, and the 2020 Shelter-In-Place

The whole world is living in an indefinite quarantine, locked down in their homes. Collectively, we are all wondering, “when can we go back to a normal life?”. What a felicitous time to watch a film about a couple trapped in a tranquil yet horrific suburbia setting. VIVARIUM is a

Film Review: Automation

What better way to celebrate the holiday season than with a Christmas themed horror movie. Just in time is the film AUTOMATION, which technically still counts as a holiday horror even if it’s main focus is the dark side of technology. It’s no TREEVENGE (a personal favorite), but this office

With the unprecedented success of films such as MIDSOMMAR and HEREDITARY, it’s fair to say that cults have played a major role in some of horrors more recent greatest hits. On first glance, Tate Bunker’s new film THE FIELD could be misrepresented as jumping on that taboo bandwagon. In actuality,
