    A haiku review:

    Boy, they got shafted
    Some miner difficulties
    Life ore death struggles

    Can confirm that I am indeed a dad, so I am licensed to make puns like that. Regarding this film, I had low expectations since the only way i had ever heard of it was on a Trailer Trauma compilation a couple years ago. Never pinged my radar…

    The Podcast Macabre 2021 Horror Challenge (Film 49 of 52)
    #21 - From Edgar Wright’s 100 Favorite Horror Films of All Time list. 

    Second viewing of this, and it holds up just as strong. I can’t top my first review and the fact that Edgar Wright asked me how I liked it after mentioning on Twitter I had watched it because of his list. (You can find my original review here.)

    “Death is just a disease.”
    This is easily in my top five horror films of this year. Well crafted, solid performances, and just a few winks to the classic story of Frankenstein.

    “WHAT?!? That B movie bullshit?!?” - Billy Boss

    Ok. I can now say I’ve seen them all. Can I say it was time well spent? No. Definitely not the last 100 minutes of this endeavor. Granted, my brain is now casting a film with Dieter Laser and Klaus Kinski trying to out-method and/or out-crazy the other. Think of how much the production would save on craft services because they would be chewing up sooooo much scenery!

    - A Boy And His Dog . . . And The Devil
    - Not All Dogs Go To Heaven
    - Hansel & Gretel Go Grindhouse
    - The Blair Ditch Project

    I've got a strong feeling this is a late contender to be in my top ten horror films of 2019. Highly recommended!

    The Woman in Black


    This is a great lesson in atmospheric horror. Nice, slow building tension with mysterious happenings. Frequent moments of "did you just see that thing move?" and "Behind you, Harry Potter!!" spookiness. I jumped a few times and had goosebumps at least once. I know it was based on a stage play per other people's posts, and I'd love to see it. All in all, an excellent return of Hammer Studios.
