Filthy Review - A Dangerous Method

A Dangerous Method (2011)

Review by Jude Felton

As I developed my love of horror films as a teen back in the 80s’ I discovered the joys of director David Cronenberg’s movies. Movies such as Scanners, Rabid and Shivers, amongst others were consumed and enjoyed, and all were very much horror movies that examined either the human body or mind. As the years have gone by his movies might be slightly less visceral, but the themes of the movies have generally stayed the same. With A Dangerous Method, Cronenberg once again visits the inner workings of the mind and, to a certain degree, the body.

The Turnpike Killer Is Coming For You

2010's The Super was without a doubt one of my favorite films from that year. It was sleazy, grimy and violent as it follows the occupants of a New York City apartment block. Now the writing/directing team of Evan Makrogiannis and Brian Weaver are back with The Turnpike Killer which, if the trailer is anything to go by, looks to follow in the violent tradition of The Super.

Filthy Review - Camel Spiders

Camel Spiders (2012)

Review by Jude Felton

When approaching a movie with the title Camel Spiders you can pretty much guarantee that you aren’t going to get a movie that requires much use of the old grey matter. Add to this the fact that it is directed by Jim Wynorski, under the pseudonym Jay Andrews, a director that has brought us such faire as The Da Vinci Coed and Alabama Jones and the Busty Crusade, and you can get a rough idea of where this puppy is heading. Don’t get ready to condemn this to the basement just yet though.

Filthy Review - Splintered

Splintered (2012)

Review by Jude Felton

I will admit that I knew little about co-writer/director Simeon Halligan’s debut feature length movie. I did know that is originally saw the light of day in 2010 in the UK, and as such was keen to watch it. The horror output from England has not only increased of late, but in general it has greatly improved as well. The fact that the movie hadn’t crossed my radar was a concern though, as usually I like to keep my finger on the pulse of what is happening in horror, especially from the UK.
