The Borderlands

Churches are fucking creepy. Whether it’s because I’m not in The God Squad I don’t know, but I just don’t find anything about them welcoming whatsoever – I haven’t even had any of that free wine they dish out with… Continue reading

Coyote

OK, for starters, I’ll quote IMDB – “An insomniac writer’s sleep-deprived hallucinations distort reality as paranoia drives him to extreme violence.” Still interested? Right, did you like William Burroughs’ Naked Lunch and/or David Cronenberg’s screen adaption? You did? Great.… Continue reading

Wer

I stumbled across the trailer for this creepy little beauty on YouTube a few months ago, right before it seemed to completely disappear off the radar. After finally tracking down a copy I can safely say it was WERth it… Continue reading

The Orphan Killer

In my day (I’m 32, so not entirely sure when ‘my day’ was/is), even the most basic slashers had ‘plots’. That’s not to say The Orphan Killer DOESN’T, but it’s that detached and broken that it feels like it,… Continue reading

Oldboy

I had a bad feeling coming into this one straight away. I tried to convince myself to stop it and judge it for what it is… give them a chance… I may be wrong… I WASN’T.

Spike Lee’s remake of… Continue reading

The Upper Footage

‘UPPER’ is the very first screener that has ever been sent to us here at The Slaughtered Bird. We’re not embarrassed, we’re just finding our feet, hounding people on Twitter. Ashamedley though, I hadn’t heard of it.

It wasn’t until… Continue reading

We Are What We Are

‘Remake’ and ‘Re-imagining’ are dirty words to most film fans, myself included. Yet sometimes one comes along that just gets it right.

I could list films in either category (the ‘Shite’ list being far more extensive than the successes), but… Continue reading

You’re Next

I’ll keep this brief…

Gathered at their family home for their parents’ wedding anniversary, tensions simmer during some sporadically engaging early scenes as four siblings and their respective partners come under attack from axe-wielding, machete-waving, arrow-firing, animal-masked home invaders. As… Continue reading

Stalled

Anything labelled as “a worthy successor to Shaun Of The Dead” is, in most cases, on a hiding to nothing. The smash 2004 comedy/horror had the lot and remains one of my all-time favourite films across any genre. STALLED doesn’t… Continue reading

Resolution

First things first, living in the UK, I stumbled across this film accidentally. Being a low-budget project by first-time feature writers/directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, it has had zero coverage on these shores. Only by delving into the internet’s… Continue reading

Slaughtered Bird Films’ BURN receives its first reviews!
Burn Slaughtered Bird Films and Dragon Egg Media’s debut film collaboration, Burn, has received its first couple of online reviews, after a preview screening at the Triple Six Horror Festival in Manchester, May 27th. Read on...
INTERVIEW: David Naughton
untitled It’s not every day you get to speak to the lead actor in possibly your favourite horror film of all time. Especially on a Tuesday. Tuesdays are usually rubbish! David Naughton should need no introduction to horror fans. Back in 1981, An American Werewolf In London had unprepared cinema goers laughing heartily one second and jumping out of their seats in terror the next. Its tale of two young American tourists coming face-to-teeth with a legendary lycanthropic beast perfectly married a genuinely funny script with razor sharp editing, groundbreaking special effects and a flawless cast to create a monster movie that is still many people’s benchmark today Read on...
