Climax

5/10 - arthouse nonsense. I didn't care who lived or died... and it's just as well because I couldn't tell who did - indeed, the arty upside down final shot didn't even tell me who the villain was. Maybe a script and some actors would have helped... but I'm pretty sure this plot was doomed to failur...

One Cut of the Dead

9/10 - horror themed comedy. The second act is slow, but it's there to set up the hilarious third act, so stick with it.

The Dark

7/10 - some interesting ideas here, but it didn't go in the direction I'd have preferred and too much was left unexplained (for a change). In particular... why was Josef going to Devil's Den in the first place?

Re: BRING BACK THE Q & As

From the Newsletter : We have decided that having a flood of people walking out in front of the visiting guests when they are being interviewed due to other films starting or limited scheduled breaks is really not a good look. This is understandable... but another thing causing that flood is that t...

The Field Guide to Evil

1/10 - Melonheads raised a chuckle, but everything else here was turgid and awful. If, in future years, you are offered a free DVD of this, slap your 'benefactor' soundly and cry, "Be off with you, charlatan!"

Open 24 Hours

5/10 - I might have liked this more if half the film wasn't just a delusion. Shrooms again.

Tigers Are Not Afraid

8/10 - liked it, but didn't love it... I didn't really connect with the characters. Pretty sure I'll be in the minority with this one, though - the room seemed smitten.

Re: He's Out There

Can anyone point me in the direction of whatever the two people who were up the front, before the film began - with the prosthetic Paul head and dog head - they were talking about something on kickstarter and something something. Anyone have any links for info?? https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...

Terrified

9/10 - Argentinian take on The Grudge. Hopefully any sequels will avoid the same trap, though... and hopefully we will see a continuation (and expansion / exploration of this mythos). Subs could use some polishing.

He's Out There

7/10 - OK house invasion movie, let down by a particularly useless kid and crippling injuries that are just shrugged off... not to mention a storybook that didn't go anywhere. The string thing and tea party were nice, though.

The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot

?/10 - I don't know what to do with this. I don't know what's in the box, either... though a pistol would seem the obvious bet.

Hell Is Where The Home Is

7/10 - Too slow in the early stages, but at least it's setting up a more complicated situation for later. The script then doesn't make the best use of that, alas. Definitely enjoyable at times, though.

2/10 - Drab. Or at least, the first hour was... at which point I decided that sleep was the better option.

Upgrade

9/10 - Action scifi with a horror edge. Mainstream enough (and good enough) to do quite well if it gets the right release. Some interesting shots in the fight scenes - though it felt like a bit of slowmo might have helped.
