A good premise let down by poor effects, a jumbled plot line, and a heavy reliance on the belief that “Japan=Spooky”
Looking for Horror Off the Beaten Track
It is said that those who do not learn from their mistakes are doomed to repeat them. Well, sometimes doing the same thing twice can yield unexpected results, such as taking horror film recommendations from Facebook.
If you only have a couple of hours spare to watch a film, then save The Wailing until later. You’ll need over two and a half hours to get through this, and perhaps another hour afterwards to digest it all.
‘Beware the recommendations of others on Facebook.’ That’s the lesson I’ve learned after watching Netflix’s Veronica.
Recently I re-watched The Orphanage; one of my favourite horror flicks of recent times, and felt inspired to try out more Spanish films as they seem to have a knack for unsettling horror.
I’ll be honest, when my partner and I were looking for something to watch one Saturday night and found Hell House LLC, we weren’t expecting much.
You know how, in most horror films, you’re supposed to root for at least one character to survive? Not this film – I was rooting for the Zombeavers!
I had planned to take dozens of photos and give very frequent updates throughout Kitacon 2017. That all fell to the wayside in lieu of having so much fun!
Don’t let the unpolished look of this film put you off, The Killing of Jacob Marr is a great little indie horror gem. What makes it work so well is a cast of characters that work so well together.
My goodness, this film was a lot of fun! Think ‘Tremors’, but set on a remote island off the coast of Ireland, and with that dark-haired chap from Coupling instead of Kevin Bacon. That’s basically Grabbers.
