The Team

Filmwerk launched on August 25th 2010 with coverage of FrightFest under the command of Steven Hurst, a professional editor with a hunger for film. Here at Filmwerk we have managed to assemble a diverse team of writers whose interests are quite varied. As a result we are able to bring you informed opinions on not just the mainstream cinema and disc releases but also a wide variety of global classics and genre specific releases.

The Rating System

Like many we have a 5 star system. But we also have writers who object to the star rating and don’t use them at all. So if you come across a review with no stars don’t assume it’s terrible, it has merely been rated in the words only.┬áBut those writers that do use the system use it as explained below. The 5 stars are awarded thusly:

5 Stars

Exceptional. Unmissable!


4 Stars

Very good and well above average. Highly Recommended!


3 Stars

Competent, but don’t expect miracles from it. We tend to frown upon 3 stars generally as it should have been better. So NOT a recommendation.


2 Stars

Poor effort. Only if you are truly desperate or a completest.


1 Star

Rubbish. Avoid at all costs.
