Rubber

11 October 2011 | Horror, Reviews | by Colin Le Sueur

There seem to be decreasingly fewer truly unique films released these days, a glut of remakes, sequels and re-imaginings taking the place of smaller, independent features. While franchises have their place, it’s nice to see a film so strange and surreal that it almost defies description. On the surface, Rubber is a story of a […]

Scream 4

18 August 2011 | Horror, Reviews | by Colin Le Sueur

Fifteen years after the release of the clever and groundbreaking Scream, Wes Craven returns to the series that helped to redefine the slasher genre. The state of the Hollywood horror film has changed greatly since the mid-90s, with waxing and waning cycles of Asian horror and over-the-top splatter franchises. Scream 4 struggles in this new […]

Survival of the Dead

8 April 2010 | Horror, Reviews | by Colin Le Sueur

When I was younger I used to ask myself what it’d be like if George Romero directed a new zombie film. How could he possibly top the legendary Dead trilogy, concluded in 1985? After him being only partially involved in the 1990 remake of Night of the Living Dead, the thought of a new Romero […]

All the Boys Love Mandy Lane

8 January 2009 | Horror, Reviews | by Colin Le Sueur

I have to admit, slasher films are a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. Watching horror films as a teen, slashers always seemed to provide the right mix of gore, sex and shocks my still-developing mind craved. When I began to study films, I felt secretly justified to discover how surprisingly complex the slasher […]

[Rec]

24 November 2008 | Horror, Reviews | by Colin Le Sueur

Even though The Blair Witch Project was released almost ten years ago, we’ve yet to see many films try to emulate the low-budget, point-of-view filmmaking techniques seen in the successful horror film. Recently, however, several high-profile films have attempted to contain their action to (ostensibly) a single camera and POV perspective; two of these films […]

Diary of the Dead

27 June 2008 | Horror, Reviews | by Colin Le Sueur

Ambitious critique of media culture filled with frightening sequences but let down by clunky POV gimmick.

The Ruins

27 June 2008 | Horror, Reviews | by Colin Le Sueur

Gruesome Americans-in-peril horror film strengthened by ruthless visuals but ultimately forgettable.

Uzumaki

30 March 2008 | Horror, Reviews | by Colin Le Sueur

Around and around, Uzumaki draws you in, closer and closer to inevitable madness.

30 Days of Night

23 November 2007 | Horror, Reviews | by Colin Le Sueur

Tense and intelligent vampire film with intruiging premise and claustrophobic setting.
