Karl Holt Interview Benny Loves You

These are strange times indeed. Upheaval and uncertainty on a such a global scale leave one quaking in the shadow of the Unknown. It’s in instances like these that we tend to crave security. Nostalgia trends are at an all time high as people desperately try to cocoon and burrow themselves in the carefree, comfortable […]

Ever since I was a small child, I have had a fascination with monster movies. They bring back nostalgic memories of sitting for hours on end, watching black and white monster movies and being mesmerized by the obscure stories and practical special effects, helping form my strong love for them both in later life. Being […]

Benny Loves You 2021

Anyone who’s read Straight Outta Kanto’s previous reviews will know that I like my budgets low and my horror, comedy. That being said, when going in to what one knows in advance is a low budget horror comedy, it’s always a gamble of “Will I enjoy laughing at this ‘cos it’s so bad?” or “Will […]

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. Being a micro-budget movie that was only made as a conclusion to an acting workshop, it received a mere week of theatrical run initially, but reviews were rave and positive word-of-mouth spread quickly.

Best Horror Comedy Films

Fans of the horror are very much aware of the amount of subgenres that have been birthed out of the general moniker of being called horror. However, out of all the different styles and variations, it is arguable that the most common and beloved rests with the ‘horror-comedy’.  Essentially, horror is a genre that knows […]

Despite the belief that this humble viewer may have been drawn in by such a provocative title, Porno, (also cringingly known as Fangoria’s Porno) premise was enough to pique my interest. On the promise of seeing horror in a theater (remember those?), Satanism and hints of homage to exploitation films of the golden era, I decided […]

  Christopher Landon is turning out to be a director I can depend on to deliver stylish and raunchy horror flicks, so I was so excited when “Freaky” first appeared with just a title and a synopsis on Letterboxd. Cut to a few months later, hype was building up for the film and I couldn’t […]

The horror genre has been flooded with a ton of films and sometimes certain gems can slip through the cracks, and go unseen for a long time. Enter “Dead Snow”. I’ve seen it for the first time recently and thought I’d like to give you my two cents. WHAT IS IT? Directed by Tommy Wirkola, […]
