Hello peeps, I am William Gelineau and today writing for GOH! Here I will rank and list my favourite exclusive monsters appearing in Silent Hill and Silent Hill Revelations, film adaptations of Konami’s psychological horror franchise.

Cure 1997

 In this short article, I want to write something about Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s Cure (1997). Yet, I do not want to present a common review, but I want to offer a somewhat more poetic piece on the rather scandalous truth of Kiyoshi’s mystery-horror masterpiece.

When it comes to Meatball Machine, I fall into the former. In fact, if memory serves […]

Hollywood Edition One Cut of the Dead

In 2017, a little movie from Japan called One Cut of the Dead arrived on scene and took everyone by surprise.

Skin Striperess Movie

Here’s another trashy offering from Hong Kong! You know, as a fan of Asian cinema, there are days when my cinema fix can only be satiated by truly thought-provoking high art; the kind of fare that challenges core values and provokes a strong emotional response.
