Let me preface this with a story: I have a friend who likes to break my heart with movies. We all have one. That person who invites you round with the promise of a movie “that you’ll just love,” then two hours later your heart has fallen out of your body until the ground, shattered into a million pieces, and you are being cradle like … Continue reading Sodom – East End Film Festival Review
The Book of Henry is a film about legacy. If you can’t fulfil your potential yourself for reasons outside of your control, then how do you achieve your desired outcome?

Part CSI mystery, part supernatural anomaly, this film is a riot from start to finish. It’s a creation from the mind of Andre Ovredal, the director who brought us Trollhunter back in 2010, and something about it feels different than other horror films out there at the moment, breaking the horror mould a little. Shot almost entirely in one location, it’s the story of a … Continue reading The Autopsy Of Jane Doe – Review
