Frightfest 2016 Review: Ibiza Undead

With a title like Ibiza Undead surely we can expect a thought-provoking, no-holds-barred deconstruction of the zombie sub-genre, tossed with some acidic, well-considered meta humour? Hardly. With his two-word...

Frightfest 2016 Review: Enclosure

There's scarcely a setting for a horror movie more consistently frightening (and overused) than the woods. From The Blair Witch Project to Exists and Willow Creek, filmmakers and audiences...

Frightfest 2016 Review: Mercy

Back in 2013, Anthony DiBlasi's chilly slow-burner Missionary was one of the most talked-about films of the Frightfest weekend - and it wasn't even considered, by most, to be...

Frightfest 2016 Review: We Are The Flesh

Hype is a strange beast. Nowadays, in our relentless, 24/7 news cycle, it can make or break a film. This is particularly pertinent when it comes to horror, as...

Frightfest 2016 Review: Beyond The Gates

Fans of Jumanji (and defenders of it as a still-scary kids' horror movie) rejoice, we finally have our very own, grown-up version in Beyond The Gates. The debut feature...

Frightfest 2016 Review: Blood Feast

Remakes are a hard enough sell in their own right, but a reboot only a select few would actually be interested in? One that does nothing to update the...

Frightfest 2016 Review: My Father, Die

Following in the footsteps of a famous, successful parent has got to be intimidating - just ask professional Twitter crybaby Max Landis. In the case of Sean Brosnan, son...

Frightfest 2016 Review: Let Her Out

One would struggle to find a baptism by fire-like introduction to the world of feature films, and to horror that is hotter than Alanna LeVierge's debut performance in body...

Frightfest 2016 Review: The Devil’s Candy

Films as special as The Devil's Candy don't come around that often. Hell, we're lucky if we get one a decade, let alone one a year. It's difficult to draw...

Frightfest 2016 Review: Under The Shadow

Sundance breakthrough Under The Shadow was a late, but hugely welcome addition to Frightfest 2016 that quickly became one of the hottest tickets of the weekend. Babak Anvari's debut...

Frightfest 2016 Review: SiREN

A feature-length film based off the weakest V/H/S segment? Who the hell thought that would be a good idea? Lots of people, apparently, if SiREN (no idea why the...

Frightfest 2016 Review: Found Footage 3D

It takes a brave-ass movie to nod to both 3D and found footage (two things movie fans at large, never mind horror aficionados in particular, are utterly sick of)...
Sadako vs. Kayako

Frightfest 2016 Review: Sadako Vs Kayako

After about a hundred remakes, sequels, prequels and spinoffs it's difficult to understand what new territory the Ring and Grudge series could possibly broach. The solution, it would seem,...
Rob Zombie's 31

Frightfest 2016 Review: Rob Zombie’s 31

Rob Zombie's 31 opens with a lengthy, to-camera monologue shot in surprisingly (for this particular filmmaker) arty monochrome. A paint-and-blood splattered miscreant addresses the audience, spitting out some of the...

Frightfest 2016 Spotlight: Under The Shadow

With just a few days to go until Frightfest takes over the Vue in Shepherds Bush, Joey Keogh takes a look at some of the most anticipated movies on this year’s jam-packed schedule. This...
