I Know How Many Runs You Scored Last Summer

Looked cheap, which is always a put off. But it turned out to be OK.

So much better than the trailer led jonbly to believe... that trailer was awful.

Eden Lake

jonbly liked this one. The first beach scene was nicely awkward, and the lead youth (in fact, the whole gang) was very well played. The ending was nicely set up, too.

just watched phantasm 4, finished off the box set and felt a bit unsatisfied. I thought the ending was too open to finish of a series of 4 movies. The script for "Phantasm 1999" was big and apocalyptic and violent... and no-one would stump up the money to make it. So Phantasm IV happened instead......

Caught Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation before Crimbo. It's so bad, it's... well, still bad. The best thing that can be said about it is that Renee Zellwegger's involvement creates some good material for an alternate ending to Bridget Jones's Diary...

That reminds jonbly of Miller's Crossing (a film about hats) and Wyatt Earp (a film about moustaches).

EXTE was quite a good laugh... though the LFF crowd sat there in stony silence whilst jonbly rocked in lonely silent giggles; mainly at the deeply loopy performance of Ren Osugi. It also manages to be a decent J-horror, too.

It's probably a Marmite film though.

man bites dog the violence itself is shocking and in the early 90s must really have kicked up a fuss. Maybe if more than five people had ever seen it, there would have been... but it never reached the mainstream. The point of the film is to show the documentary crew becoming active participants in ...

There were a couple of things about this one that bug jonbly. Six months later? The mind boggles. By day two you'd be ripping that house and outbuilding apart... The husband... your wife is showing definite signs of going crazy, and you let her spend two days alone in a house she believes is haunted...

Oops, nearly forgot to rant - this movie was shown in the wrong aspect ratio, and that always really annoys jonbly. Yes, the projectionists at Frightfest have to cope with a mad plethora of formats over the weekend... but it's frustrating to have to watch a whole movie like that.

Very much a straight sequel. Whatever you thought of Night Watch, you'll probably think of this one.

Interesting way to finish the second film in a trilogy! It didn't make much sense that the other Others remembered everything, though...

8/10
