    Why Horror?

    ½

    Just about the most self-serving documentary I've ever seen about any topic, "Why Horror?" makes you wonder "Why This Documentary?"

    An hour and thirty minutes of some guy named Tal Zimerman, whom I had never heard of before today, violently wanking himself off about how unique and edgy he is because he's a horror fan, about how much of an outcast and social pariah he is because he likes scary movies.

    Color Out of Space

    ★★★★

    A beautiful descent into a horrifyingly vibrant and colourful psychological otherworldly chaos, 'Color Out of Space' is a must-see film. Rather similar I feel to both "Annihilation", directed by Alex Garland, and Panos Cosmatos' "Mandy", Richard Stanley strikes an excellent balance between family dynamics/drama and total fucking cosmic carnage.

    It's visuals are massively impressive. This film is undoubtedly best experienced on the largest screen with the beefiest sound system possible. Not only is it's use of colour phenomenal, but it…
