HALLOWEEN IS HERE!: BLOOD PUNCH [2014]

Directed by Madellaine Paxson Written by Eddie Guzelian Starring: Milo Cawthorne, Olivia Tennet, Ari Boyland Blood Punch is a nice blend of horror and dark comedy… and romance, as the story revolves around a dangerous love-triangle. The plot seems simple enough, but this film…

BLACK SEA [2014]

Directed by Kevin Macdonald, Written by Dennis Kelly Starring: Jude Law, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, Grigoriy Dobrygin Jude Law’s Scottish character in this submarine flick has to be seen to be believed. In the opening scene I did not recognise him at all, not…

NIGHTCRAWLER [2014]
