★★★½

Incredible kills, weird as hell POV shifts, and a great atmosphere. Overall very sexy and quite the hoot. Maybe not groundbreaking, but surely a bloody good time!

Having once been a 13-year-old girl, I was howling with both laughter and cringe. This movie is bloody delightful.

This week we’re watching Dario Argento’s 1975 giallo thriller - DEEP RED. This is a pretty fitting transition since last week we had Romero’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. As you might know, Argento collaborated with Romero’s DAWN OF THE DEAD. We love it when masters of horror create together.

Deep Red could simply be labeled as a “whodunit” film, but it truly does embody the spirit of an arthouse horror.. For those of you who don’t know, Giallo can…

This week we’re watching George A Romero’s seminal classic Night of the Living Dead, which made zombies a household name.

The figure of the zombie has its roots in the folklore of Haiti, a Caribbean country where some practitioners of voodoo believe the dead can be reanimated through magical means. The first ever zombie film was 1932’s White Zombie, which stars Bela Lugosi as an evil voodoo master who controls a crew of zombified servants. This concept of creating zombies…

Now, before we get into the countless reasons…

Welcome to ALTER: Horror Through History. This is the first in a weekly series of classic horror movie viewing parties. With each installment we will be introducing a famous film from the horror canon and discussing how it's still influential today!

We’re starting with the OG cinematic vampire, Nosferatu, who stars in the 1922 work of the same name directed by German filmmaker F.W. Murnau. Although recognised today as a masterpiece of silent cinema, there was no shortage of controversy…

TRAIN TO BUSAN
Short review:
Someone once said to us that TRAIN TO BUSAN took the idea of SNAKES ON A PLANE and said “okay now, but what if ‘zombies on a train.”’ They’re not wrong. But while we love the campy, “I’ve had it with these motherf***ing snakes on this motherf***ing plane” of SNAKES ON A PLANE, TRAIN TO BUSAN is a decidedly more emotional film about the things humans are willing to do to save themselves or help…
