Short Film Roundup Reviews: Head & Introducing Parker Dowd

22 January 2016 12:30 PM, PST | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I love short films. Don’t get me wrong, there’s an infinite amount of things to love about features as well, but I’m in love with the idea of having to tell a story and invoke emotions and tone within a small amount of time, it impresses me very much and for each of our Short Film Roundup reviews, I wanted to shine the spotlight (so to speak) on short films I’ve come across that really stand out. The majority of them will obviously be genre shorts but don’t be surprised if you read about short films that play in the drama or comedy playgrounds as well, because really, why limit ourselves?

Head (Dir. Ruben Pla)

Cheap Thrills/Contracted actor Ruben Pla gives viewers one interesting and downright creepy short film with his most recent directorial effort, Head. Telling the story of man who’s in »

Glasgow FrightFest announces line-up change

22 January 2016 4:32 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

News reaches us this morning that this years Glasgow FrightFest has undergone a line-up change. Due to shifting release dates, the Stephen King shocker Cell is to be replaced with the World Premiere of John Suits’ Pandemic. And honestly, I for one couldn’t be happier.

Why? Well Pandemic director John Suits was also responsible for the 2014 FrightFest flick The Scribbler which, if you’re a long time reader of Nerdly, you’ll know that I gave a whopping 5 out of 5 to after its screening. And not only that, it was my number one movie choice for the Entire year… So to say I’m excited to see Suits’ next movie is something of an understatement.

Pandemic is a science fiction thriller featuring non-stop action from a first person shooter perspective as the all-star cast of Rachel Nichols (Star Trek, ‘Chicago Fire’), Mekhi Phifer (Insurgent, Divergent), MIssi Pyle (Gone Girl), Alfie Allen (John Wick, »

Kill Game Review

11 January 2016 2:53 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mama told me that if you’ve got nothing nice to say, don’t say anything – but unfortunately, it’s my job to say something no matter what.

I’d rather not discuss Kill Game, because, frankly, there’s not much To discuss. It’s a dead-on-arrival slasher flick boasting forgettable performances, unnecessary bloating, and low-budget effects that, in the basest terms, show glimmers of ambition, but it’s ultimately ill-fated generics.

Robert Mearns’ obvious thriller means to turn the tables on deserving victims, but gets lost in a soulless story about shitty people who meet equally shitty deaths. There’s a larger theme of bullying gone wrong at play, but its hamfisted execution makes a caricature out of otherwise important topics. Cheap thrills, unsexy romance, and an ending that’s four scenes too long only further a frustrating stereotype about middling January releases and their assumed quality. In the immortal words (or word, »
