Win THE WAVE on Blu-Ray In Our Competition!


To celebrate the release of the thunderous nerve-wracker disaster movie THE WAVE – on DVD & Blu-ray 15th August – we have teamed up with StudioCanal UK to giveaway a copy on Blu-ray!

From director Roar Uthaug (currently helming the new Tomb Raider reboot starring Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander!), The Wave pulls no punches as it destroys a picturesque Norwegian town with a 300 foot tsunami.

In the vein of classic disaster movies, The Wave pits an ordinary man against the fury of nature as he tries to save and reunite his family, resulting in frame after frame of edge-of-your-seat action.

“One of the best disaster movies in years” GamesRadar+

“Puts Hollywood disaster movies to shame.” Perri Nemiroff, Collider

About Bat 7048 Articles
I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Kingdom Come: Deliverance


  1. Jaws is the film that terrified me as a kid & although it doesn’t have the same effect when I watch it now, if I feel startled in the sea I can still hear that music. How many film scores can have that effect on people ????

  2. Jaws, although I live in a cold climate only sharks are baskings, still don’t fancy swinning anywhere near a potentially great white location.

  3. Open Water – Simply shot based on a true life mistake. The gradual terrifying circling of the sharks and the slow death of the two swimmers still makes me think twice before diving in tropical waters.

  4. I think the effect that Jaws had upon me when I saw it as a new release was enough for me to nominate it as the scariest Water-Themed film of all time. A combination of music, sound effects, superb acting but most of all fantastic filmography (getting the animatronic “Bruce” to actually feel terrifying was incredible). Even today, Jaws will scare the bejabers out of newcomers to its delights.

  5. i’m going to cheat and say the dr who episode the waters of mars. it is nearly impossible to be scared by “monster movies” which rules out most water based horrors.

    dark water comes close, but that dr who episode was stunningly effective in making water itself a genuine threat and properly terrifying.

  6. Jaws, I saw it when it was realised and I was only a child. Had nightmares about it for years. People tell me to rematch it now and that I will find it funny but I just can’t do it.

  7. The Fog … although not all set at sea it still holds up as one of Carpenter’s best works, really atmospheric and absolutely terrifying!

  8. Deep Blue Sea. The thought of sharks being super intelligent and able to hunt and eat you that way frightens the life out of me.

  9. Sharknado – the thought of giant sharks coming out of the sky has to put the bejesus up everyone. Although Finding Nemo comes close as I thought that Nemo would never get home.

  10. Ghostboat starring david jason, how it suddenly emerged decades later to claim the one person (david jason) who escaped when it originally sank/went missing

  11. Jaws – which will teach me for sneakingly watching it through the banister as a child when my parents thought I was asleep!

  12. I have a morbid fear of the sea anyway, but the original JAWS just blew me away when I saw it at the cinema. I still watch the DVD occasionally and it still raises goosebumps. Fantastic film.

  13. The Abyss is by far the worst for me with them being that deep under the water and the moving water looking at them.

  14. Jaws is the ultimate, water, scary movie – who hasn’t been swimming in the sea, when the film (uninvited and unwelcome) pops into your head to ruin your water time??

  15. For me its The Cave. I’m claustrophobic, so even the thought of spelunking in underwater caverns chills me to the core. Let alone being chased by nasties down there 🙂

  16. Open Water, simply because it’s so plausible and could happen to nearly anyone. That it’s based on real events is truly scary.

  17. ADRIFT ~ how do you get back on that boat?!
    Brilliant movie, so scary how one person’s stupid mistake could be fatal for the whole group and how many dangers you face when adrift in the open ocean.
    I flip out if seaweed touches my foot 😛

  18. It all comes down to thinking fast,can’t wait to see, has to be lot better than jaws or the Poseidon
    Looking after your family always comes first

  19. Original Jaws as was just a kid when I saw it and the effects were just brilliant for that time, plus the music core is sublime!
