The Human Centipede 2 is Not For Your Viewing Pleasure

You’ve been warned. Tom Six, the genius behind The Human Centipede concept is back with a sequel, which reveals a different kind of horror from its predecessor. The Human Centipede 2 is rather vile, hard to stomach and not for your viewing pleasure.

Paranormal Activity 3: Same Winning Formula

I was hesitant about watching Paranormal Activity 3 because the last installment I watched had caused me sleepless nights. It’s almost impossible to top that movie.

Remakes are hard to do. Story focus, character alignment and even special effects have to be thought out extra carefully. It’s impossible to avoid comparisons and the hordes of die-hard original fans that come with them. Thankfully, there isn’t much to complain about Craig Gillespie’s take on Tom Holland’s 1985 vamp flick cum cult classic  Fright…
