B&W Dreams

One of my colleagues asked me yesterday about my favourite black & white movies – and it got me to thinking about how many vintage movies I truly love and admire. I struggled a bit with picking an all-time fave but of course it’s King Kong, the first movie I remember making me cry. It is wholly responsible for my adult obsession with giant … Read More B&W Dreams

Peelers

I sort of panic chose this movie because I’m disgustingly disorganised and I thought: strippers fighting tooth and nail against the infected? What’s not to love? Well… I should also DISCLAIMER this and say I got distracted a couple of times so this review might not be fully accurate. A small town strip club owner must defend her bar, her strippers and her life … Read More Peelers

The Perfection

Ummmmmmmmmm. I have A LOT of thoughts about this movie, though it will be really hard to explain it – because it is one of the weirdest rides I’ve ever been on. I think maybe going into the movie with no idea what you’re in for would be the best way to enjoy it – so maybe hold off this review until you’ve seen … Read More The Perfection

Cujo

I’ve spend most of this week feeling slightly bummed out and I swear to god it’s Stephen King’s fault. I know I’m way behind on Cujo’s story but I did not expect to end in such a devastating way – I guess that’s why it’s so effective. While you’ve got your eye firmly planted on Cujo, you don’t think about anything else. Most readers … Read More Cujo

Haunting on Fraternity Row – I Watch Them So You Don’t Have To

Welcome to the second post in my I Watch Them So You Don’t Have To series (see #1 here). I thought it might be fun to share some of the lesser recognised horror ‘gems’ I stumble across, just because. I’m quite sure nobody else really cares but I do. I love the idea of people getting the films they want to make made, usually … Read More Haunting on Fraternity Row – I Watch Them So You Don’t Have To

I Don’t Think You’re Ready For This Giallo

Last Thurday my fellow horror fiend Matt hosted Dario Night at his place. This consisted of a lot of snack food and a double bill of Dario Argento movies. Now this was an educational date, as my experience of the godfather of Italian Horror is shaky at best and consists of just three of his films – Phenomena, Two Evil Eyes (segment “The Black … Read More I Don’t Think You’re Ready For This Giallo

Easter Horror Movies – I Watch Them So You Don’t Have To

To celebrate Jesus’ resurrection, I thought I would do something extra special on the blog. So, while you’ve been munching chocolate for breakfast, I have been exploring a small selection of crappy Easter horror movies (and munching chocolate for breakfast). Apparently the Easter horror sub-genre is really a thing and while it was hard to get hold of a lot of them, I did … Read More Easter Horror Movies – I Watch Them So You Don’t Have To
