Review: Dog Soldiers

Dog Soldiers begs and borrows from over a dozen horror films but still manages to be hugely entertaining.

Review: Cursed

It seems a little pretentious, almost too easy, for the team that introduced a whole generation to the slasher film, to continue to tread very familiar ground with their post-mod posturing and teen-angst, 18-30 styled preaching. It isn’t like self-reference and pop-culture has...
