I quite liked this one, although some of the action scenes were too fast / indistinct, while the villains' credibility suffered from their daft grunting noises and lack of characterisation. Some of the action scenes were better handled though and there were a few memorable death scenes! Sad to see o...

Only slightly better than the now notorious Zombie Women Of Satan . A few laughs, a couple of decent deaths scenes, but all too often the humour fell flat, while the film also suffered from some poor acting. Some of the political / social commentary added a little more depth, but ultimately this was...
Really enjoyed this, although slightly slow in places. I thouht the story was reasonably plausible, with believable performances. Overall good with some memorable scenes. Sadly no Adam there though! 9/10

I'm surprised no-one has yet mentioned the legendary Spanish classic from 1973, A Bell From Hell. Not really a giallo, but likely to appeal to those of us who like giallo movies, as well as though who like mystery / revenge thrillers from the seventies.
I noticed that according to Amazon the running time for the UK DVD of Trick 'r Treat is 79 minutes, 82m for the US version (as expected as American DVDs are always 4% longer anyway), yet the version we saw at Frightfest was 95m, according to the festival programme. Does anyone know why there is such...
*** Possible spoilers *** Very good follow-up to a classic, although some of the new characters were a bit weak and I don't think there were as many memorable set-pieces as the first either. Perhaps the gore levels were lower this time around too, although the overly fast action sequences perhaps me...
*** Possible spoilers *** Not sure about this movie. I probably need to see this again and I may appreciate it more on second viewing. The big build-up at the start meant I started analysing the film too much instead of sitting back and enjoying it for what it was, plus a couple of things irked me e...
Really loved this one, with the suspense built up expertly in this 1980s set occult shocker reminiscent of the '70s classics. Someone else obviously liked it as they proclaimed Ti West to be the new Polanski! 9.5 / 10
*** Possible spoilers *** Dark and grim - so it went down well with me. However, if the director thought the "villain" had redeeming features that enabled the audience to empathise with him, then I didn't notice them. I would have tried to kill him long before the nominal hero attempted to, but mayb...
