The Fear Street series, originally written by R.L. Stine, thrives off subversion. So much about this trilogy rejects typical horror tropes. As a newcomer to horror, I was nervous but excited to watch Fear Street. My intrigue won out. It seemed presumptuous to consecutively release all three films on Netflix in the weeks of July...

Film, Venue / 14/09/2021 Why ‘About Time’ Is My All-Time Comfort Film

Sometimes there’s nothing better than indulging in a top-notch comfort film when you’re feeling down – films have the power to heal and restore. For me, the best comfort films are British romantic comedies. Not the cheesy cliché rom-coms which dominated the early 2000’s, but rather the light-hearted romantic comedies that make you feel warm...

Film / 14/09/2021 Norwich and Norfolk Spots On The Big Screen

‘A Fine City’ and ‘Home of the Wonderful’ are the words associated with Norwich, and they’re certainly not wrong. The landscape of our city and county has been showcased in many films we know, love, or need to watch – be sure to check out these films and hidden gems if you’re new to the...

Film, Venue / 17/08/2021 Escape Room: Tournament of Champions – Review

If this movie is successful, we might have a new Saw franchise on our hands. Escape Room: Tournament of Champions is the sequel to 2019’s Escape Room, directed by Adam Robitel and starring Taylor Russel and Logan Miller, among others. The first film had a solid premise but it was wasted on unlikable characters and...

Film, Venue / 17/08/2021 Quaint but Meaningful: The Style of Taika Waititi

New Zealand has been a mini-capital of film development for many years, though it might be a struggle to name any directors originating from the country other than Peter “Hobbiton” Jackson. You will find that New Zealand accommodates large blockbusters on a regular basis, but a lot of the best faces have arisen from its...

Anime as an Art-form

Holding hands, a boy and girl fall through the sky. She calls his name, and when Haku, an ancient river spirit, remembers a life before, the sky shakes around them with a thousand silver scales. The girl, Chihiro, falls. As she does, she realises that, like the mundane Japan she left behind, she can come…

Don’t Scare Us With Your Covid Dramas

In the world of corporate enterprise, problems normally arise when demand lessens and spending tightens. And yet for the film industry, the problem is rather the opposite. Lockdown has created more space in our days to binge watch high end films and television shows. With restrictions on socialising, many of us have more time on…
