The Inheritors (1983)



To watch the English language trailer from America, you'd be forgiven in thinking that this is an action exploitation movie about neo-nazis. What you get in fact is an Alan Clarke-esque drama about a young boy with a disfunctional family life who is drawn into the camaraderie and fellowship offered by the youth group off-shoot of a local up and coming right wing nationalist party looking to get elected into parliament. He gets the family and friends he can't get at home or school and being young and impressionable (i guess) he gets sucked right in. I don't entirely blame him, his mum is a tyrant and clearly doesn't like him, and none of his school peers have any time for him, even before he was on TV telling everyone he believes that Austria should be rid of all foreign influence.

Overall it's very well made film and generally well acted, until it comes to the fight scenes which are a little bit pantomine and lack any feeling of danger or even violence!

I was looking up the lead actor after I watched the film and I was very saddened to find out he died at age 24 in the Yugoslav war (1991) from a missile strike!

The Bye Bye Man
A group of students get a house, they find a creepy thing and then have a seance, afterwards creepy stuff happens.
Meh, quite bland horror not one I'm gonna watch again. The tagine is apt.
Don't say it, don't think it.

Anyone with a Netflix subscription and that likes films like John Wick and the sequel should definitely check out Polar starring Magnus Magnusson of Mastermind fame
Great comic book adaptation with plenty of OTT violence, brilliant film!

Also, watched the Death Wish remake last night (also on Netflix), a lot better than I expected and a film that IMO doesnít deserve all the hate just because it was directed by Eli Roth and is a remake of the Bronson film, I enjoyed it and will most likely pick it up cheap at some point

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Robert Downey Jnr is a petty thief who somehow lands a high profile acting audition in Hollywood, only to find Hollywood way more dangerous and twisted than good honest thieving. Val Kilmer and a very hot Michelle Monaghan co-star in this wickedly funny mid-2000s comedy thriller that is an absolute hoot from start to finish. Great fun.

One Cut of the Dead (2017)

There is a LOT of hype surrounding this Japanese zombie movie, so much so that I almost went into it expecting the worst like every other time a film is Ďthe best movie since...í and doesnít really deliver.

One Cut starts with a virtuoso one camera, one take 37 minute scene which is the mini story of a film director making a zombie film in an abandoned industrial setting. However, the location he chose has an urban legend which the director uses to his advantage and unleashes the real zombies for some added realism!

After the scene ends we flash back a month into the rehearsals and production of the scene we just saw and Iíll do you all an injustice if I go into further detail so I wonít.

One of the funniest things Iíve seen in a long time, definitely check it out, I loved it!!

Warlock Moon (1973)

It's five minutes from the end when something actually happens in Warlock Moon. A film supposedly about the Occult, the supernatural and cannibalism.

A story about a college girl who meets a reporter and they end up at a run down health spa. For the next seventy minutes nothing happens bar some wandering around the spa and sitting round a table with an old woman a couple of times.

Although quite atmospheric at times, especially the eerie exploration of the old spa hotel, my interest waned quite quickly due to the film being so uneventful.

Warlock Moon is a film that makes (hint, hint) Ti West's The House of the Devil (2009) seem like an OTT action, horror extravaganza. If you like very talky films by all means give it a go but if you are hoping for down and dirty seventies exploitation and scuzziness prepare for disappointment.

I wouldn't worry, you gave it three stars on Letterboxd so you must have seen something in it.

As I mentioned in my reply to BAKA the other day, I can't recall much about it since my initial watch. Hopefully I don't regret it too much!
