A film fan of most genres, particularly horror and westerns.
Glad to be getting back out to the cinema again.
Watched as part of a Universal Horror movies quest but it's really a historical drama, with Boris's executioner and Rathbone's Dicky 3 trying to pull it into Grand Guignol territory. The drinking scene between 'ol Basil and a young Vincent Price is a particular treat.
Does end rather abrubtly though. It almost feels like they got bored of making it, so just wrapped it up!
Cronenberg's most commercial film is surprisingly one of his most gross - in a good way of course. There are some keys scenes in this movie, which live with you for years and will have turned as many on to the rest of his work as they turned off. For me the vomit drop destroying Flesh and the maggot baby are those key scenes that I still find a little hard to watch!
Golblum is twitchy and odd. Perfect casting.…
A couple are haunted by the reappearance of his dead girlfriend every time they have sex. A brilliant concept, marvellously realised in this bloody, icky, pervy little Brit Flick, which I loved.
My only concern was that it kept appearing to end, and then went on a bit more. However, on reflection, I think it needed that extra breathing space, in order to deliver the full force of the ending.
One of my favourites of Frightfest 2015.
