  • Indie Movie Review – Incision
    I’m fairly sure that I’ve said before that I’m not a huge fan of the horror/slasher/gore sub-genres, so it didn’t take long for me to realise that Incision wasn’t going to be my cup of tea. But, as has been demonstrated many times before, just because it’s not my ‘thing’ doesn’t ...
  • Indie Movie Review – The Devil’s Heist
    I have a confession to make:  I love the Devil.  Okay, not the real Devil.  But I love the way actors portray him in film.  Whether it’s James Woods in Disney’s Hercules or Peter Stormare in Constantine or Tim Curry in Legend, I’m a sucker for a smooth portrayal of Satan.  ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Climate of the Hunter
    Vampire movies can be a lot of fun.  Some of my favorites include Dracula (Bela Lugosi version), Twilight, 30 Days of Night, the underrated Vampire Academy, and What We Do in the Shadows.  You can read my review of Fright Night here.  Climate of the Hunter is an indie take ...
  • Rewatch Movie Review – Twelve Monkeys
    For the record, Twelve Monkeys was suggested to me as a rewatch to tie in with the Groundhog Day theme, however, there is no way that Twelve Monkeys is a Groundhog Day film. No ifs, buts, or maybes… it’s a time travel film rather than a time loop film. But, having got it cued up and ready to ...
  • First View Movie Review – The Endless
    So where do I begin with The Endless? It only just squeaks in as a Groundhog Day type film. Not because there isn’t a time loop, more likely because there isn’t just the one. There seem to be dozens of them. Some only seem to last seconds, whereas others last longer. ...
  • First View Movie Review – Blood Punch
    Blood Punch is an unusual little film. It starts off with our hero, Milton (Milo Cawthorne) waking up in a wilderness lodge on Tuesday. His first action is to run and throw up in a toilet. While he’s there he finds a screen, a load of wires, and a few ...
  • First View Movie Review – Triangle (Groundhogs Day… at sea)
    It’s funny how some films never get a chance because of a bit of marketing that doesn’t quite hit the spot, and so you just don’t bother looking past the poster. That’s what happened with me and 2009’s Triangle. The poster in question shows a blonde woman wearing a blood ...
  • First Watch Film Review – Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
      Is Eternal Sunshine a Groundhog Day Loop film? Let’s explore! Here we go with another film that, for some unknown reason, I’ve never seen and am not sure why. At least this one’s relatively recent; I still haven’t seen Citizen Kane or The Sound Of Music! Could it have been the sub-par cast? Nope! Any ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Paintball Massacre
    Paintball Massacre begins with Lee Latchford-Evans standing on a bridge overlooking a railway line while we hear a train approaching. He’s obviously contemplating suicide (he’s a fire officer who’s “seen too much”) until a text arrives inviting him to a school reunion and he changes his mind. Many parents of young ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Bright Hill Road
    Bright Hill Road is one of those interesting but unsettling films that make you wonder exactly what you’re watching and what you’re in for. We start off with Marcy (Siobhan Williams) waking up in bed. She seems a bit befuddled, and a scan around her bedroom shows a lot of wine bottles ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Haven’s End
    Ever felt like you just want to get away from everything? Things are getting on top of you? Problems at work? Family difficulties? Civilization as we know it falling apart? We’ve all had days like that! Haven’s End is the story of a group of friends having one of those days. We open to ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Return To Splatter Farm
    Return To Splatter Farm is listed on IMDb as a Horror/Thriller. That worries me a bit, as that indicates that the humour wasn’t intentional. I don’t have the benefit of having seen the original to know whether this is intentional or not but, as is well-known, I’m a bit of ...
  • Thirst — A New Cult Classic?
    The Opening Scene of Thirst NOTE:  The following description is very gross.  Read at your own risk. My niece once got me a bookmark that says, “Don’t judge a book by its movie.”  This, of course, refers to the old adage, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”  All of which is ...
  • Jill’s Top 10 Movies of 2020
    Well, let’s start by saying 2020 sucked, movie-wise. At least in the theatrical releases. With the pandemic keeping us inside, theaters have been (mostly) closed all year — tough for film fanatics like us. The trickle of new wide release films hasn’t provided much in the way of outstanding offerings: I’ve ...
  • Indie Review-Beast Mode
    Beast Mode is a hidden gem of a horror film.  It stars former child actor C. Thomas Howell.  His comedic performance makes the whole film. What’s Good About Beast Mode This is a solid horror-comedy.  And if you’re looking for something that’s light on gore, this is a great pick.  It also ...
  • Golden Man’s Top 10 Movies of 2020
    How do you choose the top 10 movies of 2020? I wish I knew an easy way to choose the top 10 movies of 2020.  But the truth is it’s like trying to pick your favorite child:  there are so precious few of them.  Looking at the “Movies Seen 2020” list ...
  • New Years Eve Movie Rewatch Review – Snowpiercer
    What says Happy New Year better than a nightmare vision of a post-apocalyptic Earth? How about a nightmare vision of a post-apocalyptic Earth presented by Oscar winning Korean master Bong Joon Ho? Tell you what, how about a nightmare vision of a post-apocalyptic Earth presented by soon to be Oscar ...
  • Movie Review – Monster Hunter
    I’ll get right to it: this movie isn’t worth seeing in a theater. If this movie came out in the 1980s the special effects would have been impressive. Today? Not so much. You get what you would expect from Milla Jovovich. There’s some cringe-worthy dialog early in the movie that no ...
  • Is there anything extra during the end credits of Come Play?
    No, there are not any extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Come Play. View details and movie information… Please share and help RunPee grow:FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditEmail
  • Movie Review – Come Play
    Come Play wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. We’ll break this one down into what was right and what was wrong. Right: Azhy Robertson, playing Oliver did fantastic. I can see him doing well for himself. The concept of the monster was new. I liked how they used today’s technology to bring ...

  • 6 Must-See Short Films In Horror
    Everyone likes to watch a good horror movie every once in a while. Short horror films are no exception! In fact, the shorter films tend to creep out more audiences within a short span of time, with some going as far as freaking out the least-brave movie-goer more than a full-length ...
  • Indie Movie Review – My Summer As A Goth
    Teenager – check, female – check, goth – check. So that’s three for three against me being in the right demographic for My Summer As A Goth! But then, when has that ever mattered? If it did, Disney wouldn’t make money until seven year olds got credit cards. My Summer As A ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Playhouse
    The problem I have with ghost stories is an absence of belief in ghosts. Not that that should be a problem… I don’t believe in hobbits, superheroes, or magic, but I still watch and enjoy The Lord Of The Rings, The Avengers, and Harry Potter. So I don’t expect any sympathy for sitting ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Clownface
    This won’t take long… Clownface is awful. Just plain awful. Usually when I watch and review a film I sit with a notepad and pen and watch it through. Then, while I’m writing up my notes I’ll have the film playing again in the background. The second time it doesn’t always ...
