Movie reviews

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 →

The Green Inferno – Antonio Climati (88 Films)

There’s nothing more confusing than taking a trip to the celluloid jungle; right let’s try to explain this. The Green Inferno has nothing to do with the more recent homage by Eli Roth (2013), in fact he nabbed the name… Continue Reading →

Cannibal Terror – Alain Deruelle (88 Films)

So who has sat through all of the 72 video nasties? If you have you certainly will have shuddered at the memory of a few shockers in more ways than one. For every Evil Dead there is a Night Of… Continue Reading →

Crucible Of The Vampire – Ian Ross McNamee (Screenbound) Review and Competition

Scroll down for competition. British horror films definitely need support and encouragement although sometimes it can be a difficult task. I am more of an age to appreciate the old guard such as Peter Walker and Norman J Warren and… Continue Reading →

Opera – Dario Argento (Cult Films)

As far as many are concerned Opera made in 1987 is the last film truly deserving of director Dario Argento’s auteur status. It also saw the end of the golden era for Italian genre cinema which was rapidly in decline… Continue Reading →

Long Weekend – Colin Eggleston (Second Sight)

I have been on a bit of a down under film kick of late after discovering wonderful Australian film Wake In Fright (Ted Kotchett 1971) recently. Where has this tale of hard drinking in an outback town been all my… Continue Reading →

Hagazussa – A Heathen’s Curse (Lukas Feigelfeld) + OST MMMD (Antifrost)

Hagazussa – A Heathens Curse is a new film by Austrian director Lukas Feigelfeld. It came to my attention somewhat randomly as the soundtrack by MMMD (Mohammad) was sent in for review. I had never heard of director or musicians… Continue Reading →

Assault – Sidney Hayers (Network)

This 1971 British movie had a variety of titles for different territories such as In The Devil’s Garden, Satan’s Playthings, The Creepers and Tower Of Terror. Some of them make little sense and dress things up as a supernatural horror… Continue Reading →

Death Line – Gary Sherman (Network Distributing)

Ah the good old London Underground, iconic though it is for us Londoners it’s a place we only venture if totally necessary. Overcrowded, subject to meltdowns, a place where manners go completely out the window and I could go on… Continue Reading →
