Oh I luv The Sleepaway Camp films! All of them are great fun! The twist at the end of the first one is one of the best in any slasher film IMO. Sounds like a great sunday Ken!


Ah, what did you make of Fight For Your Life, Truck? Been meaning to see that.


I watched a classic Universal horror film earlier tonight; Creature From The Black Lagoon - a great film this - very much in the same vein as Universal's other classic horror films; a sympathetic monster in luv with the lead female. Those underwater scenes and the Creature's costume are still phonomenal even today, over 50 years olf!

I bought the R1 Sleepaway Camp boxed set from Anchor Bay, some years ago.
Waste of money as they were crap!

Movie Marathon yesterday;

ARMY OF CRIME-Well enough made film,but was rather slow at times.

DEAD MANS SHOES-BLU RAY-Tremendous film,Meadow's best IMO which looks even better in Hi-Def.Considine's performance never loses owt with each subsequent viewing.
Bummer is,Optimum done away with the extras that were on the DVD,bar the commentary....

THE FRENCH CONNECTION-BLU RAY-Still classic,although I see what other people mean with Fiedkin tampering with it-just need to get the right picture setting.

ZOMBI-(ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS) Blue Underground version-Best I've seen this classic look and sound.

House Of Whipcord - Early seventies British exploitation. Tame in many ways but quite enjoyable. Some of the acting is hysterical.

Rogue - This is a lot less gory than I was expecting but it does have a nice level of tension that it plays out quite well.

Indeed it is. And Sheila Keith is amazing!


"Grindhouse Trailer Classics 2" -

Damn fine set of exploitation trailers and a nice little bit by Stephen Thrower. Could have been longer (not quite 2 hours), but all these things could.
Some grimy, cheesy, nasty, campy, trashy gems on here from a time much missed.

Vigilante: Bill Lustig's film starring Robert Forster and Fred Williamson. Okay, not really horror, but I enjoyed the hell out of it.

The Last Horror Film: Being a big fan of Maniac I've always wanted to see this. Big let down unfortunately. Total mess of a film. I'm not sorry I bought it though. There are some decent extras on the disk that I'll look forward to watching, including the promo footage for Maniac 2: Mr Robbie. Watched it last night. Nothing amazing, but from a completeists point of view I quite like owning it in its entirety.

Fight For Your Life in my opinion should be released in this country. After viewing the film, i feel the reputation let the film down. It has a notorious background being banned etc, but really this is just a little movie which is more like a stage play than a grindhouse flick. It has grindhouse elements, but too me i was not shocked by the violence, there is nothing groundbreaking in the gore. However the acting is top-notch. Both the criminals and the black family are well cast. It's a shame that the ending builds up to a scent of extreme emotions that you want the film to deliver the goods in violent vengeance, but sadly this is not forseen and is abandoned with a cliche ending. Even though the final gunshot is pretty nice.

It's an alright watch but i wouldnt go crazy about it
