Dead By Dawn 2014: The Shorts

If you have been to, or read about, Dead By Dawn before now then you will know that a lot of great shorts are always scattered throughout the program. So, without further ado, here is the full selection of bite-sized beauties that viewers…

Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983)

An anthology movie based on that classic TV show (and my personal favourite TV show of all time), Twilight Zone: The Movie may, like many anthology movies, not hit a home run with every segment, but it does a better job than most, and is…

13 Sins (2014)

Now THIS is how you do a remake. Taking the premise from 13: Game Of Death and using it as a framework for a mix of humour and nastiness, director Daniel Stamm (who also co-wrote the screenplay with David Birke)  does his utmost to please…

Les Gouffres (2012)

There's not much I can put here to sugar-coat the pill. I really didn't like Les Gouffres. Granted, there was a potentially interesting psychological aspect to the whole movie that might appeal to some people, but it didn't work for me at…

In The Name Of The Son (2012)

A vigilante movie with a difference, In The Name Of The Son is a film with the potential to offend and alienate many viewers. I thought it was pretty great, but it's undeniably just as discomforting as it is entertaining. Astrid Whettnall…

The Howling (1981)

1981 was a great year for werewolf movies. In fact, you could say that it was the best year for werewolf movies. An American Werewolf In London is one of my favourite movies of all time, and my favourite werewolf movie, but The Howling…

Candyman (1992)

Adapted from the short story by Clive Barker, Candyman is a bit of a modern horror classic. Written and directed by Bernard Rose, it mixes some social commentary, some urban legends and a load of intelligence to create a rich, satisfying,…

Mr. Sardonicus (1961)

Yet another delightfully ghoulish (literally) movie from William Castle, Mr. Sardonicus is a real treat for horror fans, thanks to its mean-spirited script, the characters and the way in which the tale unfolds. Ronald Lewis plays Sir Robert…
