Dead Silence 2007.

After receiving a package with a ventriloquist doll and his wife's mysterious death, Jamie returns home to Raven's Fair to confront a curse on the families.

From Leigh Whannell and James Wan creators of Saw comes this little gem of a horror based on their own idea of a urban legend of Mary Shaw and her dolls that she had created in her image to find the perfect doll.

It does have its gore moments but not as bad or thrilling as the Saw movies with a twist of a ghost story with its atmospheric tone and creepy background score. Judih Roberts (Eraserhead) dons the creepy make-up as Mary the ventriloquist, Donnie Whalberg as the detective in charge. Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) as Jamie who wants the answers to the curse. This is one for the lights to be out and enjoyed.

Dracula (1979, John Badham)

Well, I had to, didn't I?
It's still a bit stiff tbh. Though the sets are lavish certainly. Is it Shoestring?
He's not that dynamic in his role. The one proper scare still works mind
Next!!!

Annabelle Comes Home

Beyond derision. Stoopid people do stupid things with dolls.



Performance

It having been a dogs age since (Channel 4 to be precise)
I perused this last. Chas needs to hide from his associates, overhearing of a place that his colleagues wouldn't know about, he enters a world of shifting identities .... Still a uniquely British film. Must rewatch soonest methinks

Leprechaun Returns
Critters Attack

Lumping these together as they are both very lumpy indeed. Yes, I still think that Krytes are cute , but a witless storyline demeans all of us. The little Oirish feller is quite violent tbh, but the female empowerment begins to grate. Humbug!

Nympha (2007)

The lovely Tiffany Shepis stars in this Italian piece of nunsploitation.

The story of a girl (Shepis) who joins the strict New Order convent in Italy is remarkable in it's unrelenting joylessness. Despite Tiff being au naturel for swathes of it's running time the scenes of lesbian love are somewhat diluted by the fact she undergoes sickening perversions in the name of God throughout the film.

So she has her ear drums perforated with a scalpel, followed by acid dripped into her eyes, her hands horrifically burned and her tongue cut out as well. Not all at once, throughout the film. Shepis is excellent and her portrayal of pain is harrowing and technically the film does well for a low budget production, however it's a joyless ninety minutes and it revels in it's ravishing grimness the likes i've not seen since Martyrs.

Looking back, I feel that watching these 2 and the Banana Splits thingy in the same week may have coloured my view somewhat. All 3 are violent enough etc. But this obsession with 'diversity' is quite insulting considering how Hypocritewood has represented some of them thar 'minorities' in the past. Plus the realisation that only Samuel Jackson is allowed to say the n word now (avoid also the excreta that is the new Shaft (watched at mates' behest)). Ahem. Rant over.

Extreme Prejudice (1987, Walter Hill)

About as macho as it gets tbh. Now that I can see it in a complete fashion that is. Old school in that even the Mehican he look white greeengo . Nolte walks like he has Gary Cooper in his arse. Ironside pouts far more than I remembered. Much hilarity.
I await not the all non binary musical version
Though with Hill, you never can tell ...

TEN SECONDS TO HELL (1959)

After World War II, a group of ex German soldiers are hired to be bomb disposal in Berlin. They pool half their pay and whoever survives after three months gets the share of the money. There is a particular rivalry between two of the group and a determination to be the last man alive and pocket all the money. Great suspense from Hammer Films.
