Unfortunately, laying down vigilante justice has its drawbacks… And thus an extended European vacation is in order. The destination? Helsinki, Finland!
“My concern is getting back to the life I had. Getting the fuck out of this place. And getting back to my friends in the good ol’ U S of A where we don’t fucking EAT people! Capeesh?”

Opening with a brutal double axe murder by an unknown murderer, no one can say Darkroom doesn’t start as it means to go on – a tough, gory thriller that’s equal parts nail-biting mystery and gruesome slasher. And this Blind Date is an altogether tougher proposition.
“He kills at the blink of an eye.”
For the most part, The Game of the Clock had me intrigued. Michele Olivieri’s short film begins well and in typical horror fashion. A beautiful girl visiting her friend finds she’s not answering the door, so she enters her home, quickly realising that she’s missing and that there are some sinister, supernatural shenanigans going on. Once on the premises, she’s faced with a ringing alarm clock and a series of unnerving notes left asking her if she can endure the next five minutes; along with other handwritten and hand-drawn riddles.
“Can you endure 5 minutes?”
If you are looking for a movie to watch, which combines the best of the golden days of exploitation with modern sensibilities, may I suggest Ravage? First time director, Teddy Grennan takes a common horror theme and elevates it to the sublime, with the assistance of a first-class cast and superior photography.
“When we pitched the story around, we were always asked about tone and it was always: it’s God’s green earth smashed up against man’s ill will.”
Waxwork Records is proud to present Godzilla: The Showa Era Soundtracks, 1954-1975. Collected for the very first time are all fifteen Godzilla film soundtracks from Japan’s Showa era in a prestigious box set showcasing the groundbreaking music from the iconic giant monster films.
“Godzilla attacks New York! Rodan devastates Moscow! Manda obliterates London! and Mothra smashes Peking! Is this the war-cry that will save the world…”
A home invasion at Christmas is what I expected when I first heard about this film, but what I watched was different… The home invasion elements are there, and as it’s based during Christmas, it reminded me of Home Alone; the trip-wire outside being an obvious reference. But Better Watch Out is even more disturbing than I imagined; a story about a child obsessed with his babysitter who is planning to leave town after Christmas. Levi Miller as 12-year-old Luke is the star of the film and flips between a range of emotions at ease. This makes him Luke more unnerving than if he was pure evil.
“You might be home but you’re not alone.”
Christmas isn’t just about the egg nog or the presents… So let’s celebrate the best Christmas movie ever made! Japanese inspired Die Hard apparel is available to pre-order from Rucking Fotten!
