Re: Top 5

Have to say the top 5 is a hard one this year but here goes: 1. Tucker and Dale Vs Evil 2. Kill List 3. The Innkeepers 4. A Lonley Place To Die 5. Final Destination 5 Amazing this year, I think on the whole the films were constistantly good with only a few notable exceptions. The worst 3 (can't thin...

A Horrible Way To Die

It started off really good waned in the middle a bit but then came good at the end. It just drove me mad with all the close up photography! What gives when directors do that as you can't tell what the hell is going on and becomes quite irritating. WIDE & MID SHOTS ARE ALLOWED YOU KNOW. Maybe if ther...

Re: The Glass Man

I take your point Jonbly but I liked it all the same. Not a typical Frightfest flick but when you have a job that gives you a wage to afford a charmed life...it is very scary when it is taken away from you and could send someone mental. Great performances all round and especially from Andy Nyman. Li...

Re: Midnight Son

Interesting little ultra low budget kind of vampire flick. The picture isn't great as is a bit blocky and "digitised" and was possibly being blown up larger than it is designed to and the sound seemed off to the left a bit, but an admirable attempt to do something different with the genre. Good perf...

Re: Rogue River

Eased us into the day with a pair of nutters who were trying to copycat The Loved Ones in their own strange way, and not as successfully. I thought pouring boiling water down your neck would have hurt more than that, and left a scalding wound. Aparently not. 6/10 :?

Re: The Theatre Bizarre

A complete waste of time (and sleep). Lazy, unfocused, overlong, sub standard tosh. Absolute Bobbins, pull your socks up lads.

Re: Final Destination 5 - 3D

Great crowd pleasing frightfest film. Imensly entertaining and fun to watch. Haven't seen parts 3&4 and I guess I don't need to now. 9/10.

Re: Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark

Thought this one was a tad too "fairy Tale" for my liking. I wanted to really like it but couldn't get past the silliness of it all. It looked great and the creatures were scary enough, at first, but then then they just became repetative with all their scouls at camera. Guy Pierce was also in the du...

Re: what dvds are we buying?

Last Sunday I picked up Re-Animator SE for 50p at a car boot sale! I had to act like I didn't care so she wouldn't see in my face that I really really wanted it.

Re: FRIGHTFEST 2010 LINEUP!!!

Watched Amer at Glasgow in Feb and it didn't float my boat but definately did others. If you like your Giallo's then it is great as is a good example of what the "style" of one is. My only problem with it was exactly that, it was only style and no real story to follow. If it had a good comprehensibl...

Re: FIGHT FEST

I also went to see The Crazies at the 1.10pm show on Friday. I didn't have anything to complain about but the story about the I-Pod...WHAT A KNOB HEAD!!!! I work in cinema and I go all the time and it astounds me how rude people are nowadays when watching films at the cinema. Everytime I go I see mo...

Re: AMER

On the long drive home I was thinking a lot about AMER and was trying to break it down as I was concerned why a lot seemed to like/love it bar me. As I was watching I did notice that the style was pretty much spot on Giallo as I am aware of the style in those films due to my recent reading up on Arg...
