THE ORPHAN KILLER (2011). Matt Farnsworth. USA. 84 min

Every century and Millennium has its own serial killer. The 19th century had Jack the Ripper. The 20th century had a handful but we'll stick with Freddy, Jason and Michael. The list for the 21st century and Third Millennium kicks off with Marcus, a tall strong slaughterman, who looks good, wears a tie and rolls his shirt sleeves up and who is really angry with life, nuns, priests and everyone else because firstly they killed his parents, then they adopted his sister Audrey but they put a mask on him so that other people did not come near him and thirdly because he says so, because if not, there would be no film and it turns out that Matt Farnsworth not only directs it but he also wrote it and takes care of the photography and the sound whilst his wife is the scream queen (with gills) of the story and also produces it. The assassin orphan has come to stay with us for a while. A long while. Long enough to please (with an axe, pick or whatever comes to hand) his 90,000 followers on Facebook.

THE DEVIL'S ROCK (2010). Paul Campion. New Zealand. 86 min

The All Blacks had just beaten Argentina in the quarter finals of the Rugby World Cup when this film, by their compatriot Paul Campion, was selected for the Horror Festival. Paul is a special effects man whose first work (on a short film) as director was merely given the trifling title of Night of the Hell Hamsters. For this feature length work he decided to rely on the Nazis (where would Horror in the 3rd Millennium be without them?) and mix them in with a pair of risky Kiwi commandos who have to parachute into a bunker on one of the Channel Islands to distract the Jerry's whilst D-Day was getting underway. What the New Zealanders don't know is that Adolf's soldiers have been playing with black magic and dark forces on the occupied island... Filmed on a very tight budget, featuring a handful of eviscerated German baddies and a topless demon, Paul sets up a cracking film.
