Not anytime soon Viral Thailand’s Viral is a concerted effort by director Manussanan Pongsuwan to create a piece highlighting the mobile-obsessed generation, and merging it with an actual haunting that happened in one of her earlier films. What we get instead, is a hackneyed plot, burdened by unnecessary plot tropes and a limp script. The […]Read More

A valiant tribute buried by a distracting decision SUZZANNA: BERNAPAS DALAM KUBUR For something called Buried Alive, the focus is really not about that. Instead, the film is both a tribute and remake of Indonesian horror classic Sundel Bolong (1981), and features many nods to the original. The spirit in question is usually a prostitute […]Read More

This wicked version of our teenage witch has enough to cast a spell. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Sabrina Spellman was a teenage witch from the good ‘ol Archie Comics that gave the cartoons some extra bite and imagination.

A family is terrorised by a house, but haunted by their grief. The Haunting of Hill House Let’s get it out of the way. The hype for this film lies not in any revolutionary scares or monsters, but a gripping, masterful storytelling that brings forth the worst kind of haunting – that from within oneself. […]Read More
A showdown that loses impact when it got distracted from its cause. Halloween 10 films later, what do we have for the seasonal franchise? There’s nostalgia from the casting of former actors, and there’s also a certain sense of refresh with a younger cast introduction. But the final film sits uncomfortably on the fence as […]Read More
This is not a tribute, but a lazy slasher with no real ambition. HELLFEST I never thought I would say this, but boy, do we need Michael Myers right now. Hell Fest primes itself up with a slasher in a haunted theme park premise, that promises some good fun scares and screams, but flatlines the […]Read More
In a unique performance that brings two genres at the extreme ends of a spectrum together, Rudra ascends the stage with three critically acclaimed classical musicians, Aditi Gopinathan (vocals), Raghavendran
In a unique performance that brings two genres at the extreme ends of a spectrum together, Rudra ascends the stage with three critically acclaimed classical musicians, Aditi Gopinathan (vocals), Raghavendran Rajasekaran (flute) and Viknash Balakirshnan (mridangam). The band will play a repertoire of songs from eight albums spanning 29 years, showcasing Vedic philosophy through the depiction of a man’s journey from birth to enlightenment. A meeting of heavy metal, Indian classical music and ancient Indian philosophy, this performance is arguably the first of its kind and promises to be an epic and enriching experience like no other.
“One of extreme metal’s most unique proposition… Singapore’s Rudra.” – Terrorizer (UK)
“Blessed with flawless production and enough brains to raise dismal metalhead IQ levels, Rudra marks the violent evolution of music’s most uncompromising genre.” – Fury Rocks (The Netherlands)
“Though the use of Eastern melody and instrumentation isn’t a completely alien concept in metal, the manner in which Rudra bring the two worlds together truly is unique.” – No Clean Singing (USA)
Rudra, by now a legendary band in the global metal scene, was established in 1992. It is world-renowned for playing a uniquely composed avant-garde blend of styles, especially for combining extreme metal with interpolations and extended passages of traditional Indian classical music. The band’s lyrical content is derived from Sanskrit Vedic literature and philosophy with ancient mantras and shlokas incorporated into the song structures. Thus, they created a brand-new subgenre of their own: Vedic metal.
To date, the band has released 10 albums and has fans across the globe. The phenomenal artistic achievement of the band has attracted even musicologists. Several research papers have been published about Rudra and Vedic metal, making them a band for both metalheads and academics alike.Buy Tickets

Like his debut masterwork Saw, there is more shock in how the mystery unfolds, than fear conjured by cleverly constructed jump scares. The good kind of shock, that is. Not forgetting tons of fun for old-school horror fans. https://t.co/2Ws1PSIBjO
