Steven Soderbergh Presents PERFECT in Cinemas from 17 May (USA) and on VOD from 21 June

Steven Soderbergh Presents PERFECT in Cinemas from 17 May (USA) and on VOD from 21 June

Produced and scored by Flying Lotus, executive-produced by Steven Soderbergh and directed by Eddie Alcazar, Perfect introduces Garrett Wareing as an emotionally-troubled young man. His mother, played by Abbie Cornish, sends him to a clinic, where modernist serenity whispers soothing promises of perfection. By planting plug-and-play characteristics directly into his own body, he is relieved of his dark, twisted visions, but his body pays the price for purity of mind.

“I wanted you to be perfect, but I can’t help but wonder… is perfection something this world needs?”

The Stomach (2014, UK) Review

The Stomach (2014)

Coerced by his scheming brother and locked away in a grimy upstairs flat, sickly Frank is the talented, money-making half of a peculiar business endeavour in which paying punters communicate with deceased acquaintances via his distended stomach. With a tube in his mouth and a stethoscope pressed against his grotesque gut (bloated with the manifestations of the dead), good ol’ Frankie acts as a middle-man between this world and the next.

“Your inside his stomach…”

Wishmaster (1997, USA) Vestron Video Blu-ray Review

Wishmaster (1997)

In the mid-1990s there was a void in horror cinema. When Wishmaster was announced, it was met with excitement. This was a horror movie created by horror fans for horror fans. Executive produced by Wes Craven, directed by special make-up effects artist Robert Kurtzman, starring horror icons Robert Englund, Angus Scrimm, Tony Todd, Kane Hodder, Joseph Pilato, and scored by Harry Manfredini, Wishmaster appeared to have the ‘killer’ team. What could go wrong?

“Be careful what you wish for.”

Grimmfest, screening the best in fantastic film, took place at Vue Printworks, Manchester, UK between 5th-8th October 2017. Overall this was a brilliant event where I enjoyed all but one film and even that was only a short, so it wasn’t too bad.

Eraserhead (1977)

This [month] marks the 40th anniversary of David Lynch’s enigmatic cult film “Eraserhead”; a bizarrely strange and surreal body-horror film that is sure to get under your skin. In 1977, the film became a popular ‘Midnight Movie’ and has continued to bother viewers’ minds since then.

Every single scene is shot in stark black-and-white with constant industrial background ambience, which is sure to make the viewer feel on edge. Love it, or hate it, this movie will for sure leave an impression on you.

Dark Cinema: Horror from Japan and Korea

Ju-on: The Grudge (2002)

When a new era of Asian horror films entered mainstream Western cinema with Hideo Nakata’s ‘The Ring’, Asian horror movies were soon perceived to be chasing Hollywood’s more hackneyed horror efforts into the shadows.

“This kind of thing… it doesn’t start by one person telling a story. It’s more like everyone’s fear just takes on a life of its own.”
