About

Damn Dirty Apes is made up of a group of three northerners who love all things film. Or at least, all things that aren’t big brainless blockbusters, stoner comedies and terrible romances.

We like good writing, smooth cinematography and great acting. Thanks to our passion for quality flicks, we’ve decided to claw our way out of the jungle and start up this site. You’ll find reviews that don’t spoil the film, features that dig a little deeper into why films are so magical and an assortment of other content.

If you’re the kind of person who wants to watch the latest Michael Bay boom-fest on repeat, get your stinking paws off us and head on elsewhere. This is a place for true film fans…

Name: Richard

Bio: Fresh faced and keen to drink in all flavours of film, Richard’s interest in cinema stems from a deep love of sci-fi, his nostalgia for new Hollywood, the cheap foreign films shelf and an unnatural sleep cycle.
