Carrying on with our Trick or Treat specials this Halloween season, we review a zombie film with a difference. Elijah Wood and Rainn Wilson star in Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion's Cooties, where cafeteria food infects pre-pubesant kids, and they take over the school as the undead. But how successful can a zombie film be when the goriest part is when they show you how chicken nuggets are made? Listen to our review to find out more.

Guillermo del Toro is back, just in time Halloween, with his gothic romance Crimson Peak. Starring Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain, we have a luxurious production design, that references everything from 1961's The Innocents, 1945's The Picture of Dorian Gray, as well as Bram Stoker's Dracula, but with all the love and care gone into the sets, how much is left for the plot? Listen to our review to find out.

Is Troll 2 really the Best Worst Movie ever? Maybe so. We take a look at this cult classic from 1990, directed by Claudio Fragasso, and look at what makes this film so bad, and yet so good, as well as the John Carl Buechler 1986 horror-fantasy Troll, which Troll 2 piggy backed on the back of.

Denis Villeneuve's Sicario follows idealistic FBI agent Kate, played by Emily Blunt, whose investigation into the head of a Mexican drug cartel leads her to violent and often illegal practices as she joins forces with a government official (Josh Brolin) and the mysterious Alejandro (Benicio del Toro) to track the leaders of the cartel down. With excellent cinematography and a tense soundtrack, how does the rest of this crime thriller fair?

First you had George A. Romero's 1968 cult classic, then you had Tom Savini's 1990 remake, and now we've got Jeff Broadstreet's 2006 3D version of Night of the Living Dead. Awesome, right? Unfortunately you'd be sadly mistaken, as this re-telling has none of the wit, imagination and social conscious of the previous two version. We dissect this hot mess and wonder if this film could be one of the most insulting we've ever reviewed.

Ridley Scott takes us back into space with an adaptation of Andy Weir's The Martian. Matt Damon gets lost yet again, but this time he is left for dead on Mars after a large sandstorm. He has to use wit and ingenuity to survive, even if that does mean using his own feces to grow potatoes. An awesome premise for a survival film, but just how well is it told? And whats with all the name titles? Also staring Michael Pena, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels and Donald Glover, listen to our review to find out more.

For Halloween this year, we are trick or treating you with podcasts and posts up on the blog all to do with horror. We are starting off with what would be many kids first forays into horror themes, and that is Barry Sonnenfeld's The Addams Family. With an excellent cast and jokes that still hold up today, we revisit this 1991 classic and discuss its influence. Cara mia!

It's Richee's turn for Virgin Viewings this week, and we watch probably one of the most iconic films in cinema history, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Praised for it's stunning visuals, majestic music and open interpretations, this film is equally vilified for it's lack of dialogue and refusal to explain anything. One of Layla's personal favourites, how will Richee fair to this Marmite film?

Richee is treated to his Virgin Viewings of Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin. Adapted from Michel Faber's novel, we see Scarlett Johansson star as an alien taking the form of an attractive human female, who main objective is to seduce and harvet the men of Scotland. At once obtuse and relateable, we discuss the story and Johansson's alien, as well as the experience of whatching the film itself.

May 1996 saw the worst loss of life for a single day on the world's highest mountain, Everest, up until that point in time. Everest recounts the build up to that unfortuante event, and questions the motives of the people who decided to climb it. Directed by Baltasar Kormákur, Everest contains stunning sound and visuals and a host of actors, including Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke, Jake Gyllenhaal, Keira Knightly and John Hawkes.

The infamous London gangsters Ronnie and Reggie Kray have been brought to the big screen, this time played by acting chameleon Tom Hardy. Brian Helgeland's film is at once funny, glamorous and dark, and reminds us that fame and the criminal lifestyle are not a good mix. Also starring Emily Browning and Christopher Eccleston, we look at the myth of these infamous gangsters in Legend.

You'll believe a man can, um, lie on a mat? For our Virgin Viewings this week, Richee and Layla are treated to Superman 4, the notoriously worst of the Superman films, by blog contributor L.J. Spence. We talk bad special effects, questionable physics, and just how a film like this was made in the first place, plus maybe the only good thing to come out of this Cannon Films production. Listen to our podcast review, and let us know what you thought of Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.

A sequel/reboot/remake of National Lapoon's Vacation, Ed Helms heads this family outing along with Christina Applegate and the sparring children, played by Skyler Gisondo and Steele Stebbins. Inspired by his childhood trip to Wally World, the now adult Rusty embarks on a cross-county trip with the aim to bring his family closer together. But how well do they cope when they come up against raw sewage, stalking truckers and Chris Hemsworth's massive, er, member? And how does it compare to the original film, and contemporary comedy for that matter? Listen to our podcast review of John Francis Daley's and Jonathan M. Goldstein's Vacation, also starring Charlie Day, Chevy Chase, Nick Kroll and His and Hers favourite Michael Peña.

Love him or loath him, Adam Sandler knows how to put himself centre of attention. This film see's him team up with director Chris Columbus, and see's the world get attacked by aliens in the guise of iconic 80's arcade games. Based on the short film by Patrick Jean, Pixels also stars Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, Kevin James and Michelle Monaghan. In our podcast review, we question whether we are experiencing peak Sandler, and what is so wrong with modern games anyway?

Critically panned, Fox's latest version of Marvel's Fantastic Four has been taking a beating on all fronts, but is it really that bad? With Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell starring as the titular superheroes, will Josh Trank's foray into comic books mark the demise of comic book movies? Maybe not, but listen to review for a non-hysterical take on this film (with mild spoilers), plus in this episode we have help from The Sports Show host Ross Bell.

Tom Cruise's insurance must of been through the roof in this Christopher McQuarrie directed sequel - we see Cruise's Ethan Hunt cling onto the side of a fusilage, race through the streets of Casablanca and go speeding *sans helmet* on an over powered motorbike. Great stunts, but what about the story? Richee and Layla give their harsh but fair review of the latest Mission: Impossible, which also stars Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Ferguson and Ving Rhames.

The latest from Pixar brings us inside the head of 11 year old Riley, who is moved cross country away from her friends, and her personified emotions, Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust and Anger, have a hard time trying to keep her happy. With more than the average amount of intelligence for a kids film, Inside Out delves us into the realms of psychology and philosophy, whole still giving us childlike silliness. Smart, funny and bittersweet, we have to wonder though if Pixar are resting on their laurels. Listen on to find out.

The Marvel cinematic universe gives us a new hero to root for in the diminutive but powerful Ant-Man. With Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, our titular hero. Also starring Michael Pena, Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll, Ant-Man is heavy on the comedy, mainly due to it being originally developed by Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish. But how does Peyton Reed's finished film measure out? And how much of Wright's original is left in? Listen to our review to find out, and look out for the spoilers after the music.

Seth MacFarlane brings back the bad mouthing teddy bear in Ted 2, along with Mark Wahlberg and Amanda Seyfried. This venture see's Ted battling for his human rights as he is ruled by the government to be just "property". Also staring Jessica Barth, Morgan Freeman and Liam Neeson, we discuss the jokes, the opening credit sequence and whether a cinema full of dope-fiends watching a musical would be a good idea.

The lovable Dispicable Me sidekicks are back in their own feature length spin-off. Minions see's Kevin, Stewart and Bob trek the globe to find a new villain to follow, and they find one in Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock). But is she too evil for them, or are they too stupid for her? With Pierre Coffin voicing the minions, the film sure is fun, but does it make any sense? Once again, we take a kids film way too seriously as we look into Illumination Entertainments Minions.

With HBO producing a remake TV show, due to be released sometime before the end of the year, Richee thought it was about time that Layla had her virgin viewing of Michael Chricton's sci-fi masterpiece Westworld. This 1973 classic seems to predict contemporary fears of technology, and produced an excellent performance from Yul Brenner as the proto-Terminater Gunslinger, hell bent on killing anyone who gives off a heat signal. A favourite of Richee's youth, but does it still hold up today? Listen to on to find out.

Twenty-two years after Steven Spielberg's instant classic Jurassic Park was released, we get Colin Trevorrow's long awaited sequel (well, third sequel) Jurassic World. With Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard as our protagonists, they are quite overshadowed by the formidible dinosaurs that we all came to see, including a massive mosasaurus, the genetically engineered Indominous Rex, and the crowd favourite raptors. Listen to our review to find out more.
