Movie reviews

Revenge – Coralie Fargeat (Second Sight)

Although a Belgian co-production, Revenge can easily be slotted in with the French new wave of extreme films that spiralled in blood and guts around the start of the new Millennium with the likes of Irreversible, Baise Moi, Haute Tension,… Continue Reading →

Come To Daddy – Ant Timpson (Signature Entertainment)

Although this is Ant Timpson’s directorial full-length feature, he is a name that should be familiar to genre fans due to production duties on films such as Turbo Kid, The ABC’s Of Death compendiums, Deathgasm and The Greasy Strangler among… Continue Reading →

Asylum – Roy Ward Baker (Second Sight)

As Robert Powell drives up to an imposing and austere Victorian looking building with Night On Bare Mountain booming on the soundtrack this one could well have been entitles Tales Of Mussorgsky and Madness. Of-course the American ‘House Of Crazies’… Continue Reading →

8 Days (Acorn Media International)

Bring me the apocalypse! Been saying that for a while now but any predictions keep on letting us down so it is a case of having to turn to fiction and film for an end of days fix. This is… Continue Reading →

The House That Dripped Blood – Peter Duffell (Second Sight)

Step inside, pull up a seat and have a drink, the hearth is lit and it’s nice and warm in here. I wouldn’t get too uncomfortable, after all this is from a more innocent time, one before the greu and… Continue Reading →

3 From Hell – Rob Zombie (Lionsgate)

Well the release of this is somewhat overshadowed by the passing of one of this trilogy of film’s most loveable stars Sid Haig. So much more than just a bad tempered, homicidal clown the veteran actor had appeared in nearly… Continue Reading →

Rabid – The Soska Sisters (101 Films)

Rabid – David Cronenberg (101 Films)

What a great time to be a film collector. Mind you if you are of a certain age it is remarkable to count up how many times you may have spent money on a film over the years. If you… Continue Reading →

Schramm – Jorg Buttgereit (Arrow)

It’s odd how things become more acceptable as time goes by, especially in the film world where perhaps what occurs in real life makes the censorship of art seem less necessary. Still who would have thought that Jorg Buttgereit’s quartet… Continue Reading →

Devil Hunter – Jess Franco (88 Films)

Welcome to the latest instalment of the so bad its good film appreciation society and we have a corker this time round in the form of Jess Franco’s 1980 video nasty Devil Hunter. This is one of the very quick… Continue Reading →

Lords Of Chaos – Jonas Åkerlund (Arrow Films)

It’s always interesting when a film is announced or still in pre-production and everyone is up in arms about it. I guess the most common time is when it is a remake and people who treasure the original hate the… Continue Reading →
