Christmas: ruined.
Halloween improved though. Swings and roundabouts.

Re: Abortion short film

This year was my favourite of the shorts batches, and this film was certainly worth watching in that context. When we get immersed in all that genre horror, it's worth pausing and realising how shocking something real can be. And real emotions. Simon Rumley's film The Living and The Dead had a simil...

Re: Dead Sushi

Some excellent (although I expect embellished) subtitle translations.
Mostly very poor CGI though.

Re: Chained

Even poor old Jennifer Lynch was apologetic about the ending which really undermined the integrity and intelligence of all that had gone before. Hopefully the director's cut puts that right, but if it so obviously doesn't work why not fix it in the original cut?? I note that Jennifer Lynch would ha...

Re: American Mary

They obviously do those parties a lot, and he (mistakenly) thought she had turned to prostitution and at very least he knew she was desperate for money. Given the arrogance, I was prepared to believe he thought he would get away with it even if it got to court. I liked this film a lot. Sensitive dep...

Re: Chained

I also found the ending worked well. Almost perfect, in fact, as twists go. And as Chary says, it was in keeping with his m.o. to keep the boy, and also a subtle way of getting back at his brother. I do like Vincent D'Onofrio, and his portrayal of the troubled killer was as good as I'd expected, but...

What jonbly really wants to know is how this will play in Italy. For them, does he start off mad and get slowly driven sane?

Re: [REC]3 Genesis

Perhaps they should have called it "WEDDING FEAST" or "TIL DEATH US DO PART - THE MOVIE" or "HONEY, MY UNCLE'S A ZOMBIE!"

Re: Top 5 films

My favourites (and indeed one or two others) are represented in this mix I made.

Some songs are quite obvious, others more subtle.

Re: Big Love To Alan, Ian, Greg & Paul

Funnily enough one guy I was chatting to yesterday said that the 'Discovery' screen feels a lot more frightfesty these days, with the main screen seeming to having to show more bums on seats mainstream kind of films. I think next year I might investigate the discovery screen a lot more. I made a si...

Re: Berberian Sound Studio

My take was that he was a nice Home Counties boy gradually drawn into the corruption of horror films*, and driven mad. And when he started talking Italian, it was a tribute to the Banarama song about Robert De Niro. I kept accidentally calling it Berberian Sound Machine. *Not too many people like th...
