    The Meg

    ★½

    I went into this expecting something very dumb and fun. It is about 30 minutes too long and nothing cool happens, at all.

  • The Carpenter

    The Carpenter

    ★★★½

    Not really what I was expecting at all and I mean that in a good way!

  • Bell from Hell

    Bell from Hell

    ★★★½

    I've wanted to see this for years. Beautifully shot and stunning cinematography and wonderful shooting locations, bringing Jean Rollin to mind at times. An unsettling film with some slaughter house footage which is difficult to watch.

  • Night of Fear

    Night of Fear

    ★★★

    Surprisingly effective and decent little film. It was only near the end that I realised there is no dialogue in this film and also I spent most of the run time thinking how obviously influential Texas Chainsaw Massacre is/was before realising this was made a while before hand. Currently on Amazon Prime and well worth checking out.

    One of my top 5 favourite Dr Who stories. Amazing!

  • Once Upon a Time in the West

    Once Upon a Time in the West

    ★★★★★

    One of my all time favourites of any genre, it has been many years since I last watched so it was very good to revisit again. About as stylish as a Western can be!

  • Dead & Buried

    Dead & Buried

    ★★★★

    Whilst watching this earlier I had forgotten it is the same director as Death Line which is funny because there is a real similarity in vibe between the two films and as far as I am concerned that is a very good thing. Nice and creepy and unsettling little film this!

  • The Devil's Rain

    The Devil's Rain

    ★★★½

    Crikey that as certainly better than I was expecting! Although a bit messy thematically it all pays off in the end with a wonderfully bleak ending. Definitely one to rewatch in future!

  • Messiah of Evil

    Messiah of Evil

    ★★★★★

    An unsung classic and one of the very best horror films of any era. A real slow burn of a film but drenched in unsettling dream like atmosphere.

  • Don't Go in the Woods

    Don't Go in the Woods

    ★★★½

    This film is a lot of fun and I feel many are too hard on it. Yes there is some ineptitude at times (some of the dubbing and reactions of characters not to mention some of the low brow attempts at humour) but there is also a lot going for it. Gloriously violent throughout even if it is quite crudely done and tonally almost disorienting at times bouncing around between silliness and sombre themes. I also like the mad synth…

  • Baba Yaga

    Baba Yaga

    ★★★½

    10 plus years ago here in the UK DVDs started to appear in high street shops (HMV etc) in garish yellow plastic cases, exploitation films which previously weren't available here. Baba Yaga was one of the earliest Shameless Films releases and it always intrigued me but I never got around to buying or seeing it. This morning I noticed it available on Amazon Prime so gave it a go.
    Very Italian and very early 70s so of course I loved it and wish I saw it sooner!
