THE LOFT

★☆☆☆☆ Dir: Erik van Looy (2014) It’s Joel Silver directing The Hangover in this dumbstruck tale involving a group of philandering man babies who bag a New York loft apartment to conduct their extramarital affairs. Back stabbing and front stabbing abound as the premise, ripe for discussing greed, jealousy and infidelity, descends into a flash-back/flash-forward “sexy” whodunnit with all … Continue reading

★☆☆☆☆ Dir: Stiles White (2014) Finally! Michael Bay and Hasbro get together and make the routinely boring, tediously obvious and downright terrible long-awaited film version of that old party freak out favourite; The humble old iconic Ouija board. Jason Blum of Blumhouse and Paranormal Activity fame can pretty much attach his name to any horror film, … Continue reading

HOUSEBOUND

★★★★☆ Dir: Gerard Johnstone (2014) New Zealand rejoice! After this year’s rather brilliant What We Do In The Shadows comes this incredibly funny Peter Jackson inspired comic/horror by first timer Gerard Johnstone. Housebound gets the balance between the two genres just right as the troubled and angry young Kylie (Morgana O’Reilly) is sent home under house arrest to her … Continue reading
