Summers Scars is a taut thriller about a bunch of kids being held hostage in the backwoods by a disheveled drifter. The little ones act so well that we deeply care about their safety in the film. Every time, the drifter inches closer to them, we recoil in terror. Every time, he makes a sudden move at them, we squirm in our seats. Especially, Amy Harvey and Ryan Conway are really good. We should consider starting an online petition for them to be legally declared as adults so that they can vote. The world, not just cinema, needs more children like these two.

It is adorable how mediocre-budget horror films sometimes make us curl into a foetal position; more so that there are people out there scraping together money and questionable talent to scare and disgust the daylights out of us. Unfortunately a lot of them are far more malevolent in spirit than in execution.

Pig Hunt is definitely about a pig and it’s about people too. Also, mutilated emus, machete-wielding psychos and nymphomaniac pot cultivators but yes, stuff does revolve around a scary pig and some frightened people. There is a bald muscular chap but he gets killed before he has a chance to annoy us. There’s also a dog called Wolfgang but he dies quickly too.
