WASDuk Review: Houses That October Built 2

There is always going to be a mix of good and bad things that arise from the independent cinema. Yes, there will be more jobs for actors and directors and they’ll all try to cash in on insta-video or streaming services. In contrast, you’ll also get niche films with no real use or with any…

We Happy Few Preview: Don’t Worry, Be Happy

From the trailer showing off the intro to We Happy Few during Microsoft’s press conference at E3 this year, you would think that the alt history survival game from Compulsion Games looked a lot like an anglicised version of BioShock. A bizarre and unnerving survival horror, with influences ranging from Huxley to Orwell, to classic…

Worms: W.M.D Preview – Arm in Arm Again

I’ve been a lifelong fan of Worms. One of my fondest childhood memories was playing the original waaay back on the Amiga, then my teenage years spending long summers nuking my friends and dropping concrete donkeys on them in Worms 2 and Armageddon, which for many, myself included, is seen as the pinnacle of the…

Crest PC Preview: Solid concept does not a good game make

Crest from Indie developers Eat Create Sleep is a God game like no other. God games usually cast you as “God” simply because you’re the player directing the lives of the people in game; you have omniscience because you can see everything and your characters act exactly the way you tell them to, allowing you…

Life is Strange Preview: Dawson’s Leap

A few months ago, the kind folks over at Square Enix recognised that us poor game journos needed a break from the neon nightmare that EGX became after a few hours, so invited us round the corner to a quaint old pub for a quick pint and a look at Dontnod’s (the blokes that made…

WASDuk Review: Jessabelle

Film: Jessabelle Grade: F- Director Kevin Greutert (Saw 3D, Saw VI) knows exactly what he’s doing with this latest ghost-girl-with-long-black-hair Ringu alum. And that’s the main problem. The minor problem is that horror films have always clung to the tag-line that they are based on true events. Lately though, a large line of terrible films…

WASDuk Review: V/H/S 3: Viral

Film: V/H/S 3: Viral Grade: C One thing the V/H/S franchise has done better than its fellow brethren of hand-held horror is to not be embarrassed by its terrible special effects. Whereas the recent stylistics of As Above, So Below and Houses that October Built decided to shake their cameras until the baddies were unrecognizable, spurning critics and fans…

WASDuk Review: Babadook

Movie: The Babadook Grade: A+ Writer-director Jennifer Kent has Amelia (Essie Davis) arrive for her parent-teacher conference in her nurse uniform, and she’s a teetering wreck. It’s nearly her son Samuel’s (an other-worldly Noah Wiseman) birthday, but that may be just a ticking bomb since his aunt has already explained why her daughter doesn’t want…

WASDuk Review: Edge of Tomorrow

Movie: Edge of Tomorrow Grade: C Doug Liman, who is best known for his crafty work on the original Bourne trilogy starring Matt Damon, doesn’t stray far from familiar territory for his latest flick Edge of Tomorrow. Viewers can even play a nice little find and replace game between Bourne and Tomorrow, where Moby’s Extreme Ways morphs into John Newman’s Love Me Again and…

WASDuk Review: Kill Your Darlings

Word on the set was that first time director John Krokidas was screaming at Daniel Radcliffe to kiss Dane DeHaan as though they were having crazy fucking monkey sex. And its this type of shit-slinging vivacity that makes Kill Your Darlings one of the best films of 2013 that nobody watched. Radcliffe sheds his wizard’s skin to…
