Film Review by FilmFellaHenry – 2/10

Cashing in on the current zombie fad comes Warm Bodies, a supposed horror comedy adapted from Isaac Marion’s same titled novel. The setup is a standard zombie holocaust, humans walling themselves up in a city district, while the rest of America shambles about on the prowl for fresh brains.

Film Review by FilmFellaHenry – 7/10

As with many great directors, Alfred Hitchcock was a rather odd man.

Doomsday Book (2012) – Review

Film Review by FilmFellaHenry – 7/10

A comical and unique look at mankind’s fall from evolutionary superiority, Doomsday Book takes the form of a 3 story anthology, helmed by Korean directors Yim Pil-Sung and Kim Jee-woon. With a content that features zombie outbreaks, the apocalypse via internet shopping and a robot who thinks it’s Buddha, Doomsday Book is certainly an interesting, if imperfect watch.
