Arrow Season 5 Episode 17 – “Kapiushon” Review
Arrow manages to continue their recent form in a flashback heavy episode. The second half of Season 5 of Arrow has shifted into a very dark and heavy centric-theme exploring the motivations and histories of the characters. Kapiushon manages to tackle the largest motive for Oliver’s lust to kill, albeit he has not been on any killing sprees as of late. An exploration of Oliver’s excruciating journey as he transforms himself into what... Read more
Marvel’s Iron Fist: Season One Review
Netflix and Marvel introduce us to Danny Rand aka Iron Fist, the final Defender ahead of the team-up series later this year. With its casting backlash and some misguided quotes on the press tour, Iron Fist faced an uphill battle to win some people over. Judging by the initial reviews of the first six episodes, it certainly hadn’t done this. Putting casting and other external issues aside, is it as bad as everyone says? Following in the footsteps...

Haunting New Poster For Alien: Covenant Emerges
In somewhat of an homage to H.R Giger, the original designer on the sci-fi classic, Alien. This brand new poster for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, looks both incredibly frightening and also gorgeous to behold. Heavily featured of course are the Xenomorphs themselves, twistedly and violently overpowering what appear to be Engineers (that’s the Space Jockey race for the Prometheus-uninitiated), whilst flanked by Facehuggers. At the top... Read more
Life (2017) Review
The famous film proverb reads “In space, no-one can hear you scream”. Well, the one that’s been famous since 1977. Since then many have tried and failed to replicate the claustrophobic terrors of Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi masterpiece and now 40 years later, it’s the turn of Life to step up to the plate and try its luck. But where others have floundered, Daniel Espinosa’s alien-loose-in-space tale does very admirably... Read more

March’s TV Pick Of The Month: 13 Reasons Why
Over the last few years, on-demand streaming services have been shaping the way we consume our entertainment. Catching-up on an episode we missed on air developed into binge-watching entire back catalogues of forgotten works, all neatly stored away in the digital archives of our browsers. The master system of them all however – Netflix – was at the forefront of the latest way to witness: Original Programming. Whether an entire season is... Read more
The Eyes Of My Mother: Exclusive Interview With Writer-Director Nicolas Pesce
At a mere 27 years of age, debutant writer-director Nicolas Pesce has crafted a simply unforgettable exercise in fear with The Eyes of My Mother. We loved the film, naming it an “immaculately horrifying vision” in our official review, and praising Pesce’s richly cinematic approach to shot composition, characterisation, and genre. To celebrate the UK release of this monochrome nightmare, Filmoria Sub-Editor Chris Haydon caught up with... Read more
The Eyes Of My Mother (2017) Review
Debutant writer-director Nicolas Pesce has crafted an immaculately horrifying vision with The Eyes of My Mother; a bloodcurdling monochrome nightmare, which drip-feeds dread with malicious precision. In an era defined by lazy, recycled scare tactics, this briskly-paced, cinematically-rich examination of fear burrows deep into the darkest recesses of the psyche, and refuses to budge long after the curtain call. This artful, yet unashamedly depraved,... Read more

Get Out (2017) Review
It’s late at night and a guy wanders through a pleasant suburb, checking his phone. Then he realises he’s being followed by a car. It’s playing Flanagan and Allen’s “Run, Rabbit, Run”. Never has that trite little song seemed so sinister, or so strangely funny, and yet it rather sets the tone for Jordan Peele’s debut as a director, Get Out. Not that he’s a complete newbie to movies, with acting and voiceover credits to his name,... Read more
Elle (2017) Review
Paul Verhoeven’s Elle – his first theatrical release in over a decade – shows that even after a prolonged absence, the Dutch provocateur hasn’t lost even an ounce of his bite. This distinctly unsettling glance into forbidden fantasy provides a glorious exploration of our psyche’s darkest recesses, exceptionally carried by Isabelle Huppert; unquestionably the finest screen actress at work today. As you’ve likely... Read more
