the battery review

Synopsis: The personalities of two former baseball players clash as they traverse the rural back roads of a post-plague New England teeming with the undead.

Synopsis: (from IMDb) Four weeks after a mysterious, incurable virus spreads throughout the UK, a handful of survivors try to find sanctuary.

the-cabin-in-the-woods review

Year: 2012 Director: Drew Goddard Rating: 9/10 Neoli’s Review: The Cabin in the Woods is one of those films I actually anticipated watching in the cinema last year.  Not because I was a big fan of Joss Whedon (who gave me Buffy the Vampire Slayer during my awkward teenage years), but because I read many […]

Cockneys vs Zombies

cockneys-vs-zombies-review

Year: 2012 Director: Matthias Hoene My Short Review: Used to direct commercials, music videos and webseries, Matthias Hoene, young English director, signs here his first feature film.
