Re: All Nighter Reviews...?

I was also at the Cambridge event, and agree with the earlier comment : the venue was perfect for this kind of thing, and the staff showed a genuine interest in what turned out to be a bit of an under-supported event. I liked that the line-up was very diverse : there's nothing worse than ending up w...

Re: Tulpa

I don't know about anyone else but had I not already seen Tulpa, you would have just sold it to me on the promise of a heavily restrained woman being presented with recently severed genitals...is it too late to put that on the posters?

Re: Maniac

Relentlessly savage and superbly shot remake of a still fairly shocking 80's splatter epic. Absolutely loved the Goblin-esque retro score by Rob and if anyone knows of the existence of a soundtrack please note it here. Elijah Wood, an actor capable of seeming meek and inexplicably creepy at the same...

Re: Outpost: Black Sun

I liked the original OUTPOST a lot but this was very dull. TV movie like pacing and bland characters made it a real chore.

Re: Under The Bed

I thought this one was quite a likeable 80's style kid-versus-a-monster movie. Could have used a sense of humour and a lighter approach (as with THE GATE, etc.) but how nice to see a man-in-a-suit creature.

Re: Tulpa

It was overlong and weighed down by absurd dialogue turning it into a laugh riot in front of a crowd...but the same could be said for many very good gialli of the 70's. I thought TULPA was a stylish and fabulously brutal homage to the sub-genre : imperfect for sure but captured the look, violence, s...

Re: Paura 3D

I dont watch these movies for realistic depictions of overcoming pitchfork abuse, but Paura was admittedly slow-paced and the 3-D utterly pointless, as tends to be the case with, um, 3-D movies in general. Still, i liked the 80's Italian horror vibe : it felt like something Lamberto Bava might have ...

Re: Bad Behaviour

This thread makes depressing reading for all sorts of reasons. I missed out on the fest this year but cant say i would have got upset by a lightweight goody bag - i remember at a much earlier Frightfest being hugely grateful just for a solitary Switchblade Romance sticker and finding it funny that s...

A few genuinely unsettling recent "found footage" / faux-reality horrors : the queasy domestic-horror flick HOME MOVIE, which observes a middle class family collapse over the course of a year's worth of holidays and festivities ; LAKE MUNGO - a vastly underrated Australian found footage ghost story ...

Re: films we just saw

The Insiduous trailer might well have been the best thing about seeing Scream 4 this weekend...a horribly smug and dated sequel in which everything unfolds as you would expect with not a genuine surprise, shock or scare in sight. Enjoyed the multiple fake-out of the prologue though even this is the ...

Re: Appluading Death Scenes

I appreciate both sides of this argument, have to say that i found the roaring rampage of revenge in the awesome I Spit ... more conventionally cheer-worthy than the (admittedly excellent) retribution in the more sombre Bedeveilled, though i have no problem with the applause for either...the only th...

Re: films we just saw

Has definitely been the worst summer for blockbusters i can remember, i have no interest in watching sequels to already terrible movies (there hasnt been a funny Shrek movie since, erm, Shrek) and would rather cut off my own face than watch another tedious Twilight movie with shitty CG werewolves an...
