Death on the Nile (2004)

Despite this feature length episode co-starring Emily Blunt, Daisy Donovan and Zoe Telford, the only person in it who i've had sat on my knee is Steve Pemberton, i'm sorry to say.

Far better than the 1978 movie version.

SUPERMAN THE MOVIE (1978) (3 hour cut)

Another of my all time greats. The movie is pure comic book and acurate to the way the comic books looked in the 1970's. Lois Lane's penthouse apartment for one thing.
The movie is now available in three different versions. The Special Edition holds the middle ground. The 3 hour cut for me is just awesome but I can see why some may think that it drags the film out.
When the film came out, pictures were printed in mags and collectores books and I remember thinking "That was not in the film". Well, there here in the 3 hour cut. John Williams on hand again to supply another superb score.
Whatever version you choose. For me, this is still the greatest superhero movie ever!!

Amok Train (1989, Jeff Kwitny)

AKA Beyond the Door III

When some American students agree to a field trip in darkest Serbia, you know that it's not going to turn out well tbh. the moral being, careful what you wish for it seems! Bloody bonkers tis (and a tad dull ...) but the gore makes up for it, wooh female parent etc.

The Body Beneath (1970, Andy Milligan)

Another suburban gothic carry on.
Relatives, they can be a nuisance sometimes, especially the bloody immortal ones
So when Susan meets a religious type who claims shared heritage, a world of swirling zooms and tropes opens up to her. Somewhat more spritely paced than Blood tbh, and all the better for it. One of three he made in England.
Somewhat more conventional and linear but still AM AF

The Meg. I enjoyed this giant killer shark movie at the cinema, but found it a bit meh on second viewing. Can't see it becoming a favourite, to be honest.

The New York Ripper (1982)

Possibly Lucio Fulci's most controversial and sadistic film, this New York set giallo thriller features some of the most notorious sequences of violence towards women in the whole genre with one or two sequences bordering on pornographic.

The film itself is fairly cliched and not particularly involving and the duck voiced killer is simply silly but there are some good 42nd Street locations and the aforementioned murders stick in the memory whether you like it or not. Although the question remains what was English actor and star of the classic BBC series Colditz, Jack Hedley, doing headlining something like this?

Killers In The Castle Of Blood (1970, JL Merino)

Some Spanish gothic this time.
Sadly hilariously dubbed, so it takes the sting out of some scenes. A new job? Forging a path in new territory? How modern some of it seems. A chemist joins a secretive Baron to aid his experiments. The print yet again diminished some of the impact. A bit torrid and possibly trimmed in places, this was an oddity, and following a Milligan flick this is high praise
Hmmm.
