Livid (2011)

Inside is probably my favourite horror movie from the past ten years or so which is why I’ve been eagerly anticipating watching Livid and hastily putting it off. Now this is a much different movie to Inside and I love … Continue reading

Phenomena (1985)

Every October I make an effort to tick off at least one new-to-me Dario Argento movie to celebrate Halloween and this year’s entry is Phenomena. Now, much like every other post-70s Argento movie it’s a severely mixed bag. No matter … Continue reading

Basket Case 3 (1992)

I can definitely appreciate Frank Henenlotter’s commitment to celebrating the freakazoids in life but neither of his Basket Case sequels manage to capture the beautiful simplicity of his original. That being said, I like that Henenlotter went in a completely … Continue reading

The Blood on Satan’s Claw (1971)

Similar to Witchfinder General in that the whole thing breezed over me and inspired the occasional “that’s cool” but ultimately left no real impact on me. Many of these 70s British horror flicks feel so dated and stale to me … Continue reading

Madman (1982)

I always remember seeing the Anchor Bay DVD cover of Madman when I was in my early teens and knew I’d have to watch it one day. This was back when I was on a strictly all-horror movie diet and … Continue reading

Frankenhooker (1990)

After watching (and loving) Frank Henenlotter’s Basket Case last year I knew I would get round to checking out more of his work eventually. Frankenhooker is very much in keeping with the spirit of that earlier film with it’s combination … Continue reading

The Curse of Downers Grove (2015)

The Curse of Downers Grove is a pretty dull and toothless teen horror flick that only caught my attention due to Bret Easton Ellis being on script duties. It has an intriguing set-up involving the titular curse that somehow gets … Continue reading

Cobain: Montage of Heck (2015)

Cobain: Montage of Heck works best as a visual representation of Kurt Cobain’s psyche and darkest, inner thoughts. Frequently accompanied by journal entries, sketches, poems, old family photos, spoken word extracts and intimate home movies the film has a lot … Continue reading

Angel-A (2005)

Had this on the old watchlist for a long time. Ten years to be specific! As a Besson fan I knew I had to get there eventually and here we are. Now, its not the greatest film ever made, nor … Continue reading

Margot at the Wedding (2008)

I’d never call myself a Noah Baumbach fan but his films always impress me. Margot at the Wedding seems to have faded into the shadows of Greenberg, Frances Ha and his other recent works but it’s easily one of his … Continue reading
