Byzantium – Quickie Review: 31 Nights Of Horror – Day 20 / Film #2

A mysterious mother and daughter take refuge in a rundown hotel while trying to escape their lengthy past. A quietly romantic and occasionally violent vampire tale. Neil Jordan has directed a wonderful companion piece for his other time chronicling vampire film, Interview With The Vampire. Multi-layered script told in narrative and flashbacks. Beautifully photographed.

Black Sheep (2006) – Quickie Review: 31 Nights Of Horror – Day 11 / Film #2

Genetically altered sheep run amuck on a New Zealand farm and start eating the humans while the unlucky attack survivors turn into some kind of weresheep. Over the top gore effects provided by Peter Jackson’s WETA Workshop. Just plain silly fun, but not as funny as I would have hoped.

Bad Milo! – Quickie Review: 31 Nights Of Horror – Day 9 / Film #3

This centres around a married man who has stress induced gastrointestinal issues which end up manifesting into a little demon that can come and go out of the man’s arse whenever things intensify and kills the source of the stress. Key to a horror-comedy: come up with a ridiculous premise, cast comedic actors, have them play the …

Beast Within, The – Quickie Review

Awesome, over the top, ’80s creature feature. Outstanding and utterly gruesome practical effects especially during the transformation scenes. Plenty of gore and dark humor and better performances than you’d expect in a genre film. It may be cheesy, but I love cheese. Nostalgic fun.

Babadook, The – Quickie Review: 31 Nights Of Horror – Day 5 / Film #1

Big Bad Wolves – Quickie Review

The content is disturbing; the humour is pitch black; the violence is graphic; the script is air-tight; the movie is brilliant. I was completely riveted while watching this film and I was horrified at what was making me laugh. This movie is terrific throughout with a devastating ending.

Bourne Ultimatum, The – Quickie Review

The action is amped up for the third entry in the successful Bourne series. In my opinion, it’s the best of the series. Incredible chase sequences and fight choreography. I really enjoyed how it’s tied in with the previous film. David Strathairn is a very welcomed addition to the cast, but he’d be an exceptional addition …
