  1.  "..COOL MODERN WESTERN.."

    Posted: 

    Red hill is a classic revenge theme movie in the form of a modern style western, with police on horses and shootouts and plenty of violence in a small Australian town, basically the story is about a new deputy who gets involved in a local cover up when an escaped criminal comes into town for revenge, a very small film done a low budget but used very well with a fantastic style and direction, the movie is paced out really well and keeps you interested in the characters and the story as it unfolds, there's plenty of cool shootouts and bloody violence, the cast is great too, very entertaining and well worth a watch, gem of a movie!!

  2.  "..IMPRESSIVE HORROR.."

    Posted: 

    For a straight to DVD movie this is very good, its not your usual cheap boring horror with a DVD cover that's more impressive than the film, Dead mine is actually of a decent budget and a great story that does use elements of other movies but stays quite fresh, the cast is very good and the effects too are rather good and there is some cool set pieces, this is certainly worth checking out as its rather a gem I think and very underrated here in the UK. There are a couple of small features too.

  3.  "..VERY GOOD FOR THE MONEY.."

    Posted: 

    This is a very good documentary covering the legacy of slasher movies, its informative for fans of old and newcomers too, it has interviews with classic horror stars and directors etc, it tells the story of the slasher from when it began and goes into the formula of what makes a good slasher movie and covers some of the old classics from back in the 60's 70's and 80's when the slasher movie was in its prime, great DVD worth every penny, lots of features too like a bonus documentary and lots of trailers plus a few other things!! You get a good few hours worth in total. The DVD cover is reversible too for a different retro art style.

  4.  "..ITS OK BUT GET IT CHEAP.."

    Posted: 

    Firstly don't be fooled by the cool DVD cover and the false quotes on the front especially the over the top comment that says the best horror debut since the evil dead ha, ha, its really nothing more than a cheap low budget horror that is amazing to watch but is NO masterpiece and is certainly NO Gorefest, lord knows what these reviewers are watching, the story is thin and pointless in a way but does hold quite well with a fairly decent cast and an old school 80's vibe about it especially with the cheap film grade, the film has some gore one major scene in particular which is done very well involving a chainsaw, and it does have its funny moments too probably the final shot of the movie will raise a laugh, overall its worth a watch if you can get it cheap but don't expect anything special, ignore the false advertising on the DVD cover.

  5.  "..BRILLIANT.."

    Posted: 

    For a small time straight to DVD movie this is a little gem, yet again another underrated movie slips past over here, this is an amazing film with a beautiful story that plays out really well and keeps you sucked in throughout, amazing cast of actors too, it's a very creepy story with some great effects etc too, this is really worth spending out on, you do get some nasty cheap horrors etc keep getting released lately but this one is a diamond in the rough, great storytelling, the movie is Norwegian with English subtitles but will keep you gripped once you get into it, no features unfortunately which would have been great, its runs at around 1hr 15min so its quite short but well worth a cheap price.

  6.  "..GREAT MOVIE.."

    Posted: 

    Amazing film in every way, fantastic story that's very sad and emotional and creepy yet at the same time really enjoyable and draws you in keeping you interested about how it will play out, very original and well directed by Peter Jackson, certainly one of better movies, the cast is amazing and all play their character really well, this is a simple movie yet highly entertaining and beautiful to look at with some top notch fantasy effects, it starts off very disturbing but pays off in the end, a must see.

  7.  "..BRILLIANT HORROR/THRILLER.."

    Posted: 

    This movie is certainly very different from the original in ways but is certainly not to be compared as it's a modern classic on its own, if you haven't seen the original not to worry as this is a very well made thriller with an interesting story, you wouldn't think wood would really be the part for this film but he is actually very good and convincing as a psychotic murderer, this movie has lots of horrific bloody violent scenes that are all done so well so make sure your not squeamish, it's a very uniquely filmed stylish movie that stands apart from most horror thrillers and should certainly be checked out its one of the years little gems!

     "..VERY CREEPY HORROR.."

    Posted: 

    This is a very unique and creepy supernatural horror with a good original story, Guillermo del Toro certainly knows how to pick the right films to present, don't be afraid of the dark was a great little film and so is this!! The story centres on the two young girls who disappear in the woods after there dad murders their mother, due to supernatural circumstances they are left alone for years to be raised by Mama a creepy ghost like entity in the woods with a twisted history. The story unravels really well with its creepy scares etc all done really well with some great effects and a good cast especially the two child actresses, its certainly very unique compared to films of this kind, really worth checking out.
