The Total Nightmare of THE APACHES

In the late 70s the UK Govt produced a short film to scare kids off of farms, due to the high number of fatalities happening around farm equipment and the like. And if you’ve never seen the UK’s attitude to PSAs for children – we go hard. This is a little bonus video to accompany another coming out tomorrow, so don’t forget to subscribe! And stay off of farms.

LOOK OUT BELOW! Song’s stuck in my head. Today we take a look at one of my favourites to see if the film holds up and to discuss what the real villain is.

APOLLO 18 is a Underrated Gem

Apollo 18 came out during the height of the found footage explosion after Paranormal Activity went gangbusters. In fact, I think its likely it was pushed into production specifically because PA did so well. At the time it got hit with some really grim reviews, but is it actually that bad?

Is THE SHINING a Bad Movie?

Okay, hear me out; The Shining fails as an adaptation for all the reasons we all know by this point, but does it fail as a horror movie in its own right? Well, I believe it does, according to my own subjective criteria on what a horror film needs to be.
Videos referenced; – The Shining (1980) – Making The Shining (1980) – The Haunting of Hill House (2018) – I Feel Fantastic (

Again, this video is based on my own subjective opinions on filmmaking and horror – if you disagree, feel free to let me know in the comments!

The Haunting of Bly Manor is coming out next week, and as I already had the studio set up for the video on The Shining (1980), I decided to make a bonus video all about my theory surrounding Hill House and how there are no actual ghosts in it.

In Defence of SLENDER MAN (2018)

YouTube has a movie criticism problem; too often films are judged on arbitrary binary attributes and there is no nuance. Well, today I am going to argue the merits of 2018’s Slender Man. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it is a ‘good movie’, but rather that it is a lot smarter than you might think and most importantly – it’s not all bad. Or, ‘bad’. We’re going to talk about Marble Hornets, character agency and mythological representation.

HOST – Pandemic Gimmick or Quarantine Terror?

Is Host (2020) really as scary as people keep saying? To say the Shudder-released Zoom-based horror, from the team behind the brilliant short Dawn of the Deaf, has taken the world by storm is an understatement. But is this passion a result of actual quality, or is it because we’ve had no movie news besides Nolan’s constant whining about Tenet’s release date for months?
