Dir. Lee Corin Reviewer. Martyn Wakefield 10 years after Fede Alvarez proved that remakes don't have to be terrible and a further 35 years since THE EVIL DEAD II redefined sequels and remakes the first time round, comes another attempt to reboot the EVIL DEAD franchise and Lee Corin puts his own stamp on a series that has 2 very distinct elements - full on gory horror (THE EVIL DEAD, EVIL DEAD) and tongue in cheek comedy (THE EVIL DEAD II, ARMY OF DARKNESS, ASH VS THE EVIL DEAD), both elements handled with love and passion from their respective directors but giving the franchise it's fanbase ..read more

THE BEASTER BUNNY (REVIEW)
BloodGuts UK Horror
by Martyn Wakefield
11M ago
Dir. The Snygg Brothers Reviewer. Dan Cook Watershit Down. An absolute trash-fire of dreadful acting, hilariously awful effects, gratuitous nudity and writing that makes E.L James sound comparatively Shakespearean, THE BEASTER BUNNY is grade Z garbage from start to finish - so of course I loved it. A super cheap sendup of giant monster movies, this slice of sleazy seasonal schlock sees a small American town being terrorised by a rancid looking puppet posing as a man-eating 50 foot rabbit. Having already worked on such stellar cinematic achievements as the mighty ‘BAT BABE: THE DARK NIGHTIE (2 ..read more

WINNIE THE POOH: BLOOD AND HONEY (REVIEW)
BloodGuts UK Horror
by Martyn Wakefield
11M ago
Dir. Rhys Waterfield Reviewer. Martyn Wakefield If ever a family classic needed reimagining as a horror classic, I doubt WINNIE THE POOH would even make a top 100 list. The lovable childhood friendship between Christopher Robin and a ragtag of animals is such a beloved family favourite that turning these creatures into death hungry monsters is a near impossible taste. Near impossible but not impossible and Rhys Waterfield is the first and maybe not the last to try. BLOOD AND HONEY takes no time in setting the scene as Christopher Robin abandons his childhood friends leaving them to fend for t ..read more

PEARL (REVIEW)
BloodGuts UK Horror

1y ago
Dir. Ti West Reviewer. Martyn Wakefield In 2009 Ti West made his name as a director to watch out for with 80s throwback, THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL. Capturing the essence and tone of what made that era of horror film so great, he managed to carve his name as one of modern cinema's horror auteurs. Since then he's had mixed success with the likes of THE INNKEEPERS and THE SACRAMENT and while many had forgotten what he could deliver it his best, in 2022 he kicked the door down to any neighsayers with surprise hit X, giving us a slice of 70s horror and pornographic themes that would surprise even the ..read more

ONIBABA (REVIEW)
BloodGuts UK Horror
by Martyn Wakefield
1y ago
Dir. Kaneto Shindô Reviewer. Dan Cook Often appearing on lists of the scariest movies ever made, Kaneto Shindô’s sexually charged 1964 thriller ONIBABA may not be a horror picture but it has more than enough strange imagery and dark theming to not only disturb but genuinely terrify. A classic example of the Jidaigeki genre of Japanese cinema that primarily focuses on the people of the Edo era of history (1603-1868), ONIBABA is an icily eerie fable of grief, lust and revenge that puts a monstrous face onto the disfiguring traumas of postwar Japan. Set in a swampy marsh outside of 15th century ..read more

DISQUIET (REVIEW)

Dir. Michael Winnick Reviewer. Martyn Wakefield There was a time when Jonathan Rhys Meyers sold a film. His name, and looks, bringing in an audience of swooning tweens. Unfortunately since his days as Elvis and a MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE cohort, his career has taken a sharp decline but there's an addiction to an actor who is fully committed no matter the film's budget and tuck into a great story telling adventure. Whether it's psychological horror of BLACK BUTTERFLY, the detective noir of AMERICAN NIGHT or a darker side to humanity in THE 12TH MAN, Meyers commitment to keep delivering original sto ..read more

30 DAYS OF NIGHT (REVIEW)
BloodGuts UK Horror
by Martyn Wakefield
1y ago
Dir. David Slade Reviewer. Dan Cook A vampire picture with some serious bite, David Slade’s 30 DAYS OF NIGHT is a fabulously gruesome adaptation of Steve Nile’s pulpy 2002 graphic novel series of the same name. Starring Josh Harnett, Melissa George and Danny Huston, 30 DAYS OF NIGHT successfully builds on the auteurist promise of the directors previous film, the leg crossing 2005 psycho-thriller HARD CANDY and allows him to expand his visual prowess to highly memorable and often splattery effect. Set on the Northernmost tip of the United States, 30 DAYS OF NIGHT tells the story of a small gro ..read more
