THE SIGNAL is a low-budget sci-fi 'zombie' anthology with some technical faults and it lacks the intelligence of Videodrome or the surrealist imagination of Kairo, but it's a vicious, gripping, psycho chiller and a must–see for any fans of those films.

I enjoyed The Signal, except for the middle section in which the film decided it no longer wanted to be serious and became a comedy... then it decided it was going to be a serious horror film again! Bah. Damn good indie horror fun though, despite the huge flaw.

I picked up The Mist and Bejamin Button yesterday.

Why did Fincher do Benjamin?! Why?!

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 15th February 2010 06:51 PM

Yeah,why?

One of those one's when it was being watched,I departed for upstairs for some good old violenza!:biggrin:

It was so droll!! It looked very nice indeed, but did he not bother reading the script? It's like Forest Gump 2!! Ha ha.

Ugh, hopefully he'll redeem himself with his next project... hopefully!

I had to re-watch Seven straight after to cool down!

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 15th February 2010 07:04 PM

If I wanted that much sugar,I'd drink a case of Coke .....

Yeah FIGHT CLUB or SEVEN could be the perfect antidote!

Seven ain't out on Blu yet is it?

And where's the bloody ALIEN series?:biggrin:

Will do.I'll be giving Tombs a spin later tonight.:thumb:

Stephen@Cult Labs 15th February 2010 07:17 PM

Wow,I thought Benjamin Button was a fantastic film.

The Alien films will be out later this year Reaps.Sigourney Weaver recorded some commentaries last year and apparently there's already been at least 1 copy of the blu-ray set pressed.Sigourney gave it to her daughter for christmas!

"Ride the High Country" - Peckinpah

"Jack Says"

"Jack Said"

"Porkys/Porkys' 2" - Upgrade from TV dupe.


"Werewolf of London" - Universal classic.

"Tony" - New Brit shocker about a serial killer.
No idea about it, but it looks good and UK horror cinema is on a fine roll at the moment.

"Grindhouse Trailer Classics 2"


DVD-R's of;


"I Start Counting" -
Amazingly obscure British sex killer on the loose thriller from 1969 starring an astonishingly young looking Jenny Agutter (just off "The Railway Children") Who even at 16/17 and playing a school girl was not afraid to strip down to her underwear.

Also stars Simon Ward ("Holocaust 2000"), Bryan Marshall ( "The Long Good Friday"), Lewis Fiander ("Could you Kill a Child"), Charles Lloyd Pack ("Frankenstein & the Monster from Hell").


"Corruption"/"Cash on Demand"


Two hard to find Peter Cushing movies ("Cash" is also a 'Hammer' film).
Sadly, despite the cover saying "Corruption" is uncut, it is in fact the slightly cut/less explicit British version of this unusually sleazy Cushing vehicle (under the "Corruption" title) not the stronger export version (actually known as "The Laser Killer") which is what I was hoping the print was taken from.
NUTS!

Oh well, not seen either of them, and "Corruption" should at least entertain even in this form.

I agree, saw this at cinema and loved it. If you didn't like the film then it still deserves merit for it's SFX. It's CGI raises the bar.

Looking forward to the Alien films on Blu-Ray definitely

It certainly does.While I was watching it,I thought that Brad's head (in old age makeup) had just been cgi'd onto the body of the actor playing the young Benjamin,which is amazing in itself but when I found out it was done using motion capture,I was in awe.
