Monster of the Week: Drukija, the Contessa of Blood (Verotika) – 2019 | New 5th Edition Monster

“So she’s a virgin?“ I pretty much said all I had to say about Verotika the last time I presented a monster from that movie. It’s not a good film and there’s really nothing to say about it. But it does have some weird villains and so here’s another dose of the bizarre and aContinue reading “Monster of the Week: Drukija, the Contessa of Blood (Verotika) – 2019 | New 5th Edition Monster”

Monster of the Week: Poltergeist (Mama) – 2013 | New 5th Edition Monster

“Don’t look at her! Executive produced by Guillermo del Toro Gómez (Pan’s Labyrinth) and directed by Andy Muschietti (It – 2019) in his directorial debut, the paranormal Mama (2013) is a fairly prosaic ghost movie about a pair of children raised by a poltergeist.  The film is pretty formulaic in delivering its paranormal plot, withContinue reading “Monster of the Week: Poltergeist (Mama) – 2013 | New 5th Edition Monster”

Glenn Danzig (founder of punk band Misfits and all-round awesome musician) wrote, directed and scored this anthology horror-movie which was based on his adult line of comics published under the same name as the film. I will admit to having a softContinue reading “Monster of the Week: Neck Breaker (Verotika) – 2019 | New 5th Edition Monster”

Monster of the Week: Hastar (Tumbbad) – 2018 | New 5th Edition Monster

“Sleep, else Hastar will come for you.“A film that took the director nine years to make,  Rahi Anil Barve’s Tumbbad is a 2018 Hindi-language horror set in the 1920s. It’s a stunningly beautiful film that follows three generations of a single family caught in the grips of greed, desperation and an ancient god. The filmContinue reading “Monster of the Week: Hastar (Tumbbad) – 2018 | New 5th Edition Monster”

Monster of the Week: Gwoemul (The Host) – 2006 | New 5th Edition Monster

“Let’s try to be broad-minded about this.“Filmed over a decade ago, the 2006 South Korean horror monster movie The Host is an excellent film. Critically acclaimed, the film won several awards for its bevy of actors (Byun Hee-bon – Best Supporting Actor at the 2006 Asia Pacific Film Fest), director (Bong Joon-ho at the 2007Continue reading “Monster of the Week: Gwoemul (The Host) – 2006 | New 5th Edition Monster”
