Hayley’s Horror Update March 2017

Posted in Horror Blog, Love Horror with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 22, 2017 by Hayley's Horror Reviews

Hello Horror Hounds! Hope you are having a gore-geously glorious week filled with some mega movie watching!

Hayley on Horror Couch

I haven’t updated this blog for quite a while so felt it was time for a long overdue update. For those of you who follow me on Facebook you will have already seen all my recent content but for those of you who keep updated via here, here are some links to what I’ve been up to on Love Horror lately.

Prevenge

Back in February I visited my regular haunt, The Showroom Cinema in Sheffield, home of Celluloid Screams: Horror Film Festival which I attend each October. I went to see the UK tour of Alice Lowe’s frightfully funny, pregnancy horror Prevenge (2016). 

So far, Prevenge is my standout film seen this year, although I am also eagerly anticipating, Get Out. If you’re in the US, Prevenge is stalking it’s way onto Shudder in two days time.

Dead Air

Earlier this month I interviewed award-winning Independent Filmmaker Geoff Harmer (Fraught Productions) regarding his recent Kickstarter campaign for his female-led, rock infused, 80’s inspired creature feature Dead Air. The campaign ended last week and the project is currently on hiatus but I highly recommend checking it out as well as our interview which talks low budget filmmaking and female status in horror movies.

Finally, I subjected myself to some Euro Sleaze courtesy of new cult film label Maison Rouge and got my first taste of some Jess Franco with his seedy, 70’s sexploitation, Female Vampire (AKA Bare Breasted Countess). 

The movie is not so heavy on the horror with more emphasis on awkward, relentless sex scenes, but hey, it was a film experience I am unlikely to forget! You can read more of my thoughts on Female Vampire here: http://lovehorror.co.uk/horror-reviews/female-vampire-1975-review/

I also have a review of Helga: She Wolf of Stilberg (1978) coming right up. If those were my thoughts on Female Vampire as you can imagine, Helga didn’t fare much better. I’m still figuring out which one I considered worse!

I have plenty of creepy content coming soon, so keep your eyeballs peeled and plenty of new ideas for the site and my career in horror reviewing.

September 2016: Horror Catch Up

Posted in Ghostface Girls, Halloween Month, Horror Festivals, Love Horror with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 4, 2016 by Hayley's Horror Reviews

Hello Horror Hounds!

I know it’s been an age since I’ve updated this blog but I can assure you that I haven’t stopped working on all things Horror these past few months.

The main bulk of my reviewing will now be on LoveHorror.co.uk; however I will provide regular links on here to all my recent work. This blog will be active for articles such as personal top 10 lists, Halloween month etc. I’d really love to bring Halloween Month back this October so if you have any requests or suggestions for films you’d like me to talk about, drop me a comment below.

letherout

I was unable to attend this year’s Horror Channel’s FrightFest due to work commitments however I have reviewed a few films that were shown at the festival. So far, stylish body horror Let Her Out is available to check out on the site. If you haven’t seen this one I highly recommend it, it has a gore-geous visual style accompanied by an intriguing premise. You can read my full thoughts here: http://lovehorror.co.uk/horror-reviews/let-2016-review/

I watched/reviewed Night of Something Strange today so be sure to check out my review of that when it’s available on the site. It’s a real blast and if you love parodies, horror/comedy and gross out humour then it’s certainly worth checking out. Also coming up will be reviews of the independent short films of Mark McFarlane and Jimmi Johnson and Welsh language thriller The Library Suicides

neon demon

I finally saw The Neon Demon this week at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre Cinema. I went into the film with mixed expectations but was incredibly impressed. It’s such a stunning, messed up film and even though the pacing is rather slow in places I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen and needed to know what was going to happen.

Ghostface Girls are back! Following our trip to Horror Con UK back in July, Caitlyn and I have recorded and uploaded another podcast where we discuss Horror on TV. With the new season of American Horror Story coming out soon and Stranger Things currently being one of the most popular genre shows on Netflix and in general we had a lot to talk about. Accompanying the podcast we interviewed author and interviewer Tony Earnshaw on his book Fantastique which has incorporated interviews from the world’s most iconic filmmakers from Horror, Sci-Fi and Fantasy:

Our latest interview was published this week where we spoke to Russell Hillman of Freaktown Comics on his Kickstarer project and graphic novel, Slashermania. His campaign ends on September 13th so if you’d like to show some support click the link below:

In other Ghostface Girls news, we will be heading to Celluloid Screams from the 21st-23rd October then Wales Comic Con on the 5th and 6th November. As always you will find us at the Abertoir Horror Festival from the 15th-20th November. There’s a lot of exciting things coming up.

Love Horror: Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014) Review.

Posted in Love Horror with tags , , , , , , on May 13, 2014 by Hayley's Horror Reviews

My latest contribution to LoveHorror.co.uk is a review of the latest DVD/Blu-Ray release of ‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones’ (2014). The Marked Ones is the fifth installment in the popular found footage franchise however my review is not very favorable as I decipher how the series has become incredibly tedious even though this entry stepped away from the characters and settings seen in the previous films. Click Here to check out my thoughts.

I have an exciting announcement to make. I was recently offered the opportunity to become a contributing writer over on http://www.lovehorror.co.uk following recognition for my continuous work on here. I am incredibly grateful for the chance to expand my work to other sites and would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported me over these passed three years from when I started reviewing. I’ll be combining my work over on lovehorror.co.uk with mine and Caitlyn’s joint project Ghostface Girls on moviepilot.com. I will still continue to post links to all my future work via here so you can keep updated with any articles written by me.

Check out my Love Horror debut, my take on the social networking meets zombie apocalypse: Antisocial (2013).
