Are you brave enough to read about these vengeful female ghosts?

Dec 6th, 2018 GV Exclusive, Horror Marcus Goh 11 min read

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and that applies especially so when we’re talking about female ghosts. We’ve written about why child ghosts are so terrifying, but female ghosts are equally terrifying in their own right. Especially if they happen to be the mother of the aforementioned child ghost, like the mother-son duo of Toshio and Kayako in the Ju-On series. Regardless, we…

6 unexpected genre mash-ups like ‘Rampant’ that were surprisingly successful

Nov 3rd, 2018 Action, Drama, Horror Marcus Goh 8 min read

Most filmmakers take a straightforward approach to films – take a story and pick the appropriate genre so that you know what the writing, shooting and editing style should be. But single genres aren’t enough for Korean filmmakers anymore. Now they’re making genre mash-up movies, like the upcoming zombie period drama Rampant, which also stars heartthrob Hyun Bin and silver fox Jang Dong-gun. Those Koreans are just…

5 slasher films that’ll have you screaming this Halloween

Oct 26th, 2018 Action, Horror, Thriller Marcus Goh 7 min read

Horror movies about ghosts and zombies may be terrifying, but deep down, we know that such supernatural creatures don’t exist. As terrifying as demonic nuns and pale white child ghosts may be, they’re not part of the real world (or so we hope). So we don’t have to worry about them hunting us down as we sleep. But slasher films like Halloween are a different…

SAF has capability to fend off zombie apocalypse, say ‘Zombiepura’ director and cast

Oct 26th, 2018 Action, Comedy, Horror, Singapore Film Marcus Goh 10 min read

Zombies and national service in sunny Singapura? If we can have pontianak, zombies sound about right. Zombiepura is the culmination of seven years of blood, sweat, and tears (and we daresay some tasty human brains as well), a zombie film where the undead rise up in an army camp because of a mysterious virus. Personally, we wonder what the Medical Officers (MOs) were doing when that…

Did you know that the Predator shares Optimus Prime’s voice? And other geek facts

Sep 22nd, 2018 Action, Adult Themes, Adventure, Horror, Science Fiction, Thriller Marcus Goh 8 min read

The last person you’d expect to star in a Predator film is Jacob Tremblay (yes, that little boy in Room, Shut In, and Wonder), but he’s in the latest instalment in the series – The Predator! He plays language savant Rory McKenna, who is instrumental in defeating the Predators thanks to that ability. It’s strange though, since you’d expect someone with more… physical abilities to…

Movies at the cinema in September 2018

September looks to be a great month to spend some time at the cinema, with sequels, spin-offs movies and action-thrillers to keep you on the edge of your seat! There’s also a very special, very furry R-rated comedy and a couple of chick flicks worth checking out. Another reason to go to the cinema in September: Golden Village Movie Club’s 11th birthday falls on this…

Can you make it through this list of the most “horrific” things in NS?

Aug 9th, 2018 Horror Marcus Goh 9 min read

If you’ve served your time during National Service (NS), you’ll have heard more ghost stories than in the True Singapore Ghost Stories series. The thing is – ghosts aren’t real (looks over shoulder just to check). Some of the horrific things you’ll see in NS could match the tales of 2359: The Haunting Hour. It would shake the even the steeliest soldier around. Take a look at…
