  • Dramatic scoring notes ignite Green Height Point’s opening scenes… these are silent scenes, and it feels as if this is an almost 90’s thriller… the kind that is seedy, uncomfortable, and full of nostalgia experience. The ‘epic’ primitive cinematic language bursts in these opening scenes… and is quickly swapped with a strange eclectic variety of […]
  • With great visuals, Magda sweeps onto our screens with a faint and resonating awareness of sound textures of the exterior space, in which these characters are about to become trapped, and of course the eerie tones of the curse/game they are about to endure in the form of simple melodic hits. Like with most horror […]
  • The Shed opens with some lovely scene-setting moments: a darkly lit house, a wild wig, an axe… the film doesn’t waste any time introducing itself as a themed horror film, one which encapsulates the sense of a world already in a state of terror. And at its heart there is a very unique performance – […]
  • Death Screens is a fun and well-colored short film with a bold sense of genre – it almost recalls the Italian Giallo genre, with a strong lead performance from its young male actor (Landon Flory). The overall style of the edit is one of the strongest for short films – it is a clear idea […]
  • The instantly grabbing element of Oh Jeff! is actually a formalist one. This isn’t a side-by-side horror venture: there’s no guts, no run and gun, no horror show with screaming victims… but there is plenty of comical performance here, and a post-modern and very social contextual idea that surrounds the main structure of the film. […]
  • Oh boy. Where does one start? So, Red Pill is a kind of resort film gone wrong. But it is also more than that – this isn’t just your plain ‘horror’ troupe of the cabin in the woods meet-up film. It’s more kind of like The Handmaid’s Tale blended in an actual blender with political […]
  • William Stancik’s Red Hill Phantasia is barking mad. And that might actually be an understatement! – whacky woo there’s greenscreen galore in this… for the most part the effects are really low key, and personally, I’d actually suggest the team check out Red Giant, because applying one of their VHS effects might help bolster the […]
  • The Eve suffers from one very key unfortunate thing: it hasn’t aged well. The digitisation process, and the image quality with it, forces the audience to immediately feel as if they are witnessing something a little dated and out of sorts. However, this isn’t actually entirely true. The film is quite well designed, and carries […]
  • Infection explores two horrors: the first – the act of infection, the second – the act of voyeurism. The film’s combo of these two elements is quite similar to the Claude Chabrol double-handlers, such as exploitation and voyeurism, madness and voyeurism etc. The short carries great voyeuristic tone though, this is both in terms of […]
  • Covid-19 has had many bad moments… but one of the only upsides is the great lengths people have gone to remain creative during these strange times. And Michael Davis is one of these people. With It’s Here, horror is stumped up as a delightful 2minutes 30seconds event. It’s got that CryptTV factor: fantastic horror elements, […]
