  • 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 ...
  • Indie Movie Review – The Retreat
    As is elsewhere recorded, horror is not my genre of first choice. But I make the effort for the good folk who follow us. So, here in the small corner room that is reserved for the team devoted to watching and reviewing independent films, I have just sat and watched The ...
  • RunPee Weekly Newsletter 37th edition (November 25th, 2020)
    The app that tells you the best time to run and pee during a movie without missing the best scenes.    Horror! Thanksgiving! Movie Review — Derelicts Yes kids, there are indeed slasher Thanksgiving movies out there. There’s some real weirdness in Derelicts. Don’t ask me about wearing a Teddy Bear on your ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Blind
    Starting on a positive note, Blind was very nicely shot with interesting, atmospheric images throughout; more than just a hint of Dario Argento. There were also some nice horror touches; cliff hangers set up, bad guys closing in, etc. However, then things fall apart. The acting tends toward the plankish; the woman ...
  • Indie Movie Review – No Such Thing As Monsters
    So here we are, back in a land down under, where women glow and men plunder… It’s another Ozploitation film. I’ll admit that I’ve had No Such Thing As Monsters available for a few weeks, but have kept putting it off mainly due to the last Australian horror/thriller film I saw:  The ...
  • Current & Upcoming Blumhouse Horror Releases
    Blumhouse is a company known for producing popular, low-budget horror films (Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Happy Death Day, Get Out, and most recently The Invisible Man).  So whenever they come out with a new title, it’s worth taking note.  While Blumhouse certainly produces things other than horror flicks (Whiplash, BlacKKKlansman, ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Expulsion
    Expulsion starts with a quote from Stephen Hawking’s last published work… We are not down to a single, unique universe… So if, like me, you’ve got even a passing interest in science fact and/or fiction, you’ll know that we’re talking multiverse theory. You know, that theory that says there are an infinite number ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Greatland
    What to make of Greatland… Hmmm… well, I’m sure that there’s a message in there somewhere,, but I’m not sure what it is. Is it supposed to be a dystopian vision of what would happen if the beliefs and ideals of the far left came to pass? Well, if the far right’s ...
  • Is there anything extra during the end credits of Freaky?
    Yes, there are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Freaky. View details and movie information… Please share and help RunPee grow:FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditEmail
  • Movie Review – Freaky
    What a fun movie! I can’t remember the last time I walked out of the theater having had so much fun. Let’s face it, when it comes to horror movies it’s all pretty much been done. When I saw Freaky was a Blumhouse production, though, I got excited. They are ...
  • The Film Legacy of Sean Connery
    This weekend I had one of those “aww” moments when you get some sad news. Not so sad as to knock you sideways, like the death of a parent or a favourite dog, but sad enough to give you a moment’s pause to think back and reflect. That moment was ...
  • Indie Movie Review – The Faceless Man
    Wow… well… I’m almost speechless. That was pretty atrocious. Anyway, a review… I try to find something I like in a film I’m reviewing, but this one was hard! To start with, The Faceless Man didn’t seem to know what it was… gangster, revenge, horror, family drama, small-town vigilante, gore fest… ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Redwood Massacre: Annihilation
    Happy Halloween! To start with, I have to say although Redwood Massacre: Annihilation is a direct sequel to 2014’s The Redwood Massacre, I haven’t actually seen it. Next, I have to say that I’m not a fan of the slasher genre, but I can put that aside and give it ...
  • Indie Movie Review – The Dinner Party (2020)
    I was quite looking forward to seeing The Dinner Party after I saw the trailer and, to be honest, I wasn’t disappointed. It all revolves around the titular dinner party, which is being held by some local power brokers. A playwright, who wants his latest effort produced, has come along with ...
  • Indie Movie Review: Love In Dangerous Times – A CoVid Rom Com
    Now, before the shouts of “there’s the bandwagon, get on board quick” start, let’s just be honest and admit that we all knew that a whole pandemic/COVID-19/lockdown-themed genre would be arriving before too long. Love In Dangerous Times isn’t the first one that I’ve seen though; that honour goes to the brilliant Staged, ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Attack Of The Demons — it’s animated and it’s horror! Why isn’t this done more?
    I seem to always start off by saying that I’m probably the worst possible person to be writing the review and this is no exception. I’ve said often enough that I’m not one of your rabid horror fans but I’ll usually watch one with minimal prompting. So… ghosts? OK. Vampires? ...
  • Where to watch Alien Addiction, directed by Shae Sterling
    Typical… you wait ages for talented, New Zealand based film directors with an offbeat sense of humour — and then three come along at once! First there was Peter Jackson. Now he’s synonymous with anything Tolkienesque, but way back in the days of VHS tapes he was the master of the ...
  • Is there anything extra during the end credits of The Empty Man?
    No, there are not any extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Empty Man. View details and movie information… Please share and help RunPee grow:FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditEmail
  • New Movie Review – The Empty Man
    October is my favorite month: it contains my favorite holiday, and I know Hollywood will provide me with my fix of new horror movies. I can’t get enough of them. Until last night. The Empty Man really disappointed me. They totally dropped the ball on editing and painting a picture that would ...
  • Best horror movies about college students
    Why college students love horrors? The students in horror movie trope is an evergreen in Hollywood. I admit, there’s something special about it all. It can be anything. A mysterious murderer in a chilling costume, a bunch of students receiving a tape or letter that predicts their death, or a lone ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Baby Frankenstein
    This was not a good film. The overall impression was that Baby Frankenstein was an E.T. wannabe, but with a laboratory experiment replacing an extra terrestrial. One group finds the ‘stranger’ and befriends it, and then have to protect it from another group who want to catch it. So the first ...
  • Indie Movie Review – The Luring
    When I saw “The Luring” I thought it looked quite interesting and would make a change from the other low budget offerings I get to see. What usually happens is I get sent an email with the poster and trailer, and then I decide whether or not I want a ...

  • Indie Movie Review – The Last Exorcist
    I think it’s only fair to say from the start that I’m not a horror/supernatural film fan, so The Last Exorcist wouldn’t have been one of my first choices if I was toddling down to my local cinema. Ultimately, however, you tend not to review only the films you like, ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Monochrome: The Chromism
    To be brutally frank Monochrome: The Chromism is a bit of a mess. Incidentally, I have to refer to this film by its full name, Monochrome: The Chromism, as there’s a 2016 film called Monochrome which is a totally different story. Anyway, Monochrome: The Chromism starts off with a chap driving cross country, walking through a battlefield, by a ...
