Essentially 'Heartless' was Faust with hoodies and strangely it evoked the spirit of Clive Barker for me much better than 'Dread' did. I enjoyed it enormously however as it progressed the generic nature of the story got more & more difficult to ignore. As with Melissa George in 'Triangle', Peter Mar...

I don't know about kd lang . . . I spent the whole movie thinking 'Holy Shit, Edward Furlong has turned into Peter Lorre'. Every time he appeared from behind a door with his beer gut & his bugged out eyes to whine about how he still couldn't find his way out of the damned house I laughed so hard tha...

It's not often that one finds themselves meeting a personal hero, someone whose work you have admired for many years, & better yet have the opportunity to speak to them, no matter how briefly.

Eden Lake made me feel really uneasy and a bit sick. Especially the super-nasty ending which essentially subverted the climax of Last House On The Left. Best movie on Thursday by a mile for me. I'd like to see the yob with the knob from Eden Lake & the meat humping dad from Mum & Dad go head to head...
