Asylum double bill

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

It wouldn’t be a look at straight to video trash without a look at two films from the new masters of the genre – The Asylum.

The Haunting of Winchester House (2009) is marketed as a scary modern horror, but it is actually a very mild and old fashioned ghost story that manages to build some good atmosphere despite being filmed in the vintage red/green 3D format.

100 Million BC (2008) is a rather less forgiveable attempt to make an elaborate thriller with no budget, but most of the flaws come from lazy script writing.
