Review: Dark Light (2016) - Directed by Anthony M Winson (January 2017)

Dark Light (2016) can be seen online by Mr Stitch Films (Anthony M Winson)
Anthony M Winson is said to like Cliches in horror and uses them to his advantage as a film maker.

In Dark Light (2016) - which can be seen online - a group of girls are terrified to death of a an unseen force. They are at an abandoned haunted location dealing with "The Beast" in this 3-4 minute Chiller.

There are some sharp, jumpy sound effects in there and dark lighting. Add the scared witless cast of ladies and you've got yourself a mini-horror film... so simple, but effective!

Merits to the cast for being lit in the dark and being in such dank locations! Winson has always had a thing for the supernatural and demonic horror. Again, it's simple, but very cool.

For more on Mr Stitch Films, please see the Official Website. Please, also see my previous Review of The Haunting of Baylock Residence (2014) - HERE.

Short Film: Dark Clouds (2017) - Directed by John H Shelton! (Suicide Awareness) (January 2017)


Dark Clouds (2017) is a short Suicide Awareness video by John H Shelton. It's a simple story: "A guy contemplates ending his life until he hears and meets the voice of reason". Mr Shelton also stars in the short in two roles in hopes of raising awareness as it is Suicide Prevention/Awareness month as it should always be... You are NOT alone!

John: "I hope others can enjoy the short film and raise more awareness for people with unwanted Negative thoughts to Suicide/taking an own life! Enjoy and obviously share to others in need or families and friends to encourage more Positive Thinking".

For further info, please contact a friend, a GP, NHS or Samaritans.

Review: Selfie (2015) - Directed by Geoff Harmer (January 2017)

Selfie from Geoff Harmer on Vimeo.
Selfie (2015) is pure simple horror, but effective in it's approach to the modern take on technology and life! A young woman is a t home, alone, texting, but soon turns to "Selfies" to impress somebody. However, it all goes wrong in horror-fashion! Watch with the lights out, if you dare!

Geoff Harmer directs the short, but effective horror film and it can be seen above on Vimeo. For a small budget and simple locations, it's amazing for what can be done on film using the right imagination and camera techniques
Simple, effective horror short by George Harmer.

Review: Destroy All Monsters (1968) - Directed by Ishiro Honda (January 2017)

Epic Kaiju Action in DAM (1968)
It is the futuristic year of 1999 and all the world's most famous Kaiju Monsters have been captured onto far-off Monster Island! The monsters include Godzilla, Minilla, Rodan, Mothra, Baragan, Varan (unnamed), Gorosaurus, Anguirus, Manda and Spigea (Kumonga) - to name a few. The monsters are kept captured by science and can't leave the island due to sci-fi goings on by the humans! However, the monsters are set loose by evil female aliens and the monsters attack the cities of the world in Destroy All Monsters (1968) - it also features the legendary King Ghidorah later in the film in a giant Kaiju battle royal!

Ishiro Honda would return to direct this monster mash for Toho Studios. It's another colorful adventure with human and monster drama aimed at family audiences for Japan and worldwide. The music by Akira Ifukube would provide some epic themes and familiar scores! Eiji Tsuburaya would supervise the special effects.

The monsters all come from a line of previous Toho films and all join forces at the end of the film. Also, a scene was cut where Godzilla tangles with Manda in Japan during the film. A giant monster mash of Kaiju Madness!!

My personal memories of this film was watching it late night in 1990 on Channel 4 (a UK TV station) in a "Godzilla Creature Feature" season.
