Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015, USA) Review

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015, USA) Review

On the night of a Condor Badge ceremony, three unlikely teenage scouts find themselves battling zombies in an attempt to save their town, prevent a pan-American outbreak and impress as many girls along the way as possible. This movie had me from the premise, but it could have easily been a total disaster. There haven’t been many stand out zombie movies over the last ten years, the exceptions being those with a fresh perspective, such as Maggie or Warm Bodies. So, I was well prepared for Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse to leave me underwhelmed. I was pleasantly surprised to discover a genuinely funny zombie flick with excellent production values and a perfect cast.

“Always bring protection.”

AMC’s Shudder Unleashes Acclaimed Canadian Indigenous Zombie Thriller BLOOD QUANTUM

AMC's Shudder Unleashes Acclaimed Canadian Indigenous Zombie Thriller BLOOD QUANTUM

It’s 1981 and a virus infects earth and turns its inhabitants into undead hordes with only one community spared and left to fight in this distinctive and relevant spin on the zombie siege horror. First Nations director Jeff Barnaby’s timely TIFF selection parallels our own global contagion crisis. AMC’s horror streaming platform Shudder has unleashed Barnaby’s gory chiller now! In light of widespread cinema closures Shudder has rerouted from their planned Spring release for Blood Quantum and spontaneously launched it at a moment in history where it could not be more significant.

Mutant Blast (2018, Portugal / USA) Review

Mutant Blast (2018, Portugal / USA) Review

From the moment Mutant Blast entered my psyche I couldn’t shake this nostalgic feeling I was having. Distributed by the legendary purveyors of bad taste, Troma Entertainment, it is undeniable that the golden age of this independent studio has left an impression on director Fernando Alle. Mutant Blast is a low-budget, gore-drenched, post-apocalyptic action/horror film that evokes the Class of Nuke ‘Em High-style of gross-out humour.

“Dolphins are diabolical creatures! But you can’t wrap that around your heads, because you think dolphins are cute… The truth is, dolphins are motherfuckers! MOTHERFUCKERS!”

Blue Finch Film Releasing Presents Twisted Horror RAVERS on Digital Download 16 March

Blue Finch Film Releasing Presents Twisted Horror RAVERS on Digital Download 16 March

Party like there’s no tomorrow with Ravers, the blissfully violent and drug-addled horror set in the shady underground of illegal raves! A group of clubbers descend on an abandoned warehouse for a night of twisted techno and hedonistic drug-taking, but the illegal rave takes a blood-stained turn for the worse when the whacked-out partygoers discover a case of energy drink ‘Renergize’. Little do they know, the experimental drink caused a factory worker to butcher his colleagues months earlier and soon the party descends into violent carnage.

Four Horrific Decades of Monster Movies (1980s-2010s)

Four Horrific Decades of Monster Movies (1980s-2010s)

Whilst the 2010s are probably my least favourite decade for creature features, it got me thinking about my favourite monster movies. I’ve focused on the big two horror creatures – vampires and zombies – and then various other monsters…

Verotika versus Rabid ’77

Ladies and gentlemen, in this corner we have the classic 1977 David Cronenberg film, Rabid. In the opposite corner, we have the Glenn Danzig opus, Verotika. Is one a better film than the other? Will the cult classic crush the newcomer or will the Master Misfit cut new horror film ground based on his comic book kingdom?

If you’re like me, your interest in anything Danzig related was piqued the moment it was announced he was working on a movie. Unfortunately, the promise faded with ever passing time…

White Zombie (1932, USA) Review

White Zombie (1932, USA) Review

In White Zombie, death feels inescapably omnipresent with images of crosses, cemeteries and headstones filling every scene. In one of the most unnerving shots of early horror cinema, we see a pair of pervasive eyes peering across the landscape. What’s so discomforting about the eyes is their vacancy and the troubling inevitability that they are undoubtedly watching us. Recognising these eyes from the film’s iconic poster we are instantly pulled in by the power and symbolism they represent.

“WITH THESE ZOMBIE EYES he rendered her powerless. WITH THIS ZOMBIE GRIP he made her perform his every desire!”
