10/04/15 Dead Rising: Watchtower (2015)

I once played one of the games this film's based on. Really enjoyed the first half, then it suddenly became really boring.

The makers of this film matched the formula exactly!


07/04/15 Echoes (2014)

Woman sees things, goes and stays in a fancy house, things turn murdery and there's a ghost.


07/04/15 Frenzy (1972)

Pretty sure it's illegal to say anything negative about any Hitchcock films. Admittedly, I haven't seen many, pretty much just this and Psycho. Psycho was excellent, this was fuckin' bumwash. Shut up.

London. Before it became the arsehole's themepark it is today.

"What's that word, Miriam?"

1970's man, modelling the standard combination of shirt, tie, brown things and alcoholism.

"Must you watch me eat, Barnsworth?"
"Yes. Late at night, I also watch you sleep. Sometimes I stroke your hair."


Did all British men look like this in the '70s, or was this guy in every film made back then?


06/04/15 The Lazarus Effect (2015)

Dogshit cover version of Flatliners, which itself was a bit bollocks.

The bunch of actor/models pretending to be brainy science children was almost as hard to believe as the completely wank plot.


06/04/15 The Cottage (2008)

Part crime film, part horror. Also comedy as well and whatnot.


04/04/15 The Mist (2007)

Essentially a film about the weather taking a turn for the worse. Starring Cloverfield and the Cloverlings.
10/10 ('Cos I said so!)


04/04/15 From The Dark (2014)

Some Irish fella, who appears to be farming mud, accidentally digs up a mud-vampire (prob called Peat... Oh stop it!).
The mudpire attacks him a bit so he runs back to his house and falls asleep.
Whilst this is going on, there's also a young couple driving around locally, their car gets stuck, in more mud, then wander over to the farmer's house where they have to do battle with the now converted farmer and the source of the problem, Count Mudula.

Although I thought the sense of threat was a little absent, this is otherwise a solid little film and well worth a peek.
