Review: Dead Heads

Films which mix horror and comedy are notoriously difficult to get right. The balance is tricky, and often a film will simply end up as a laugh-free mess rather than a carefully integrated mix of the two genres. Dead Heads manages to get more right than it does wrong, and the result is a surprisingly …

Review: Break

In the horror genre, the hoary old theme of the ‘backwoods slasher’ never seems to go out of fashion. Every few years a new film of this type appears, and rarely do any of them bring something new to the table. Such is the case with Matthias Olof Ekh’s Break. Break

Review: Strippers vs Werewolves
