It's still a decent watch, i always enjoy Castellari films, it's just that there aren't enough scenes with Testi and Hemmings to build up any chemistry or mismatched buddy movie feel to it.

Surprised at how much I enjoyed THOSE WHO WOULD WISH ME DEAD.

Nice to see an action movie with some originality.

Thoughts folks?

Also watched a GRINDHOUSE RELEASING DOUBLE BILL the other night.

PIECES and I DRINK YOUR BLOOD/

Both outrageous.
Both classics.

It's one i have penciled in to watch over the festive period as i think there may be a dearth of movies like this which i usually really enjoy.

Deadtime Stories. 1986

A young boy being baby sat by his uncle who tells him twisted fairy tales Of
Peter and the witches, Little Red Runninghood, Goldi Lox and the three bears.

I watched this last year March/April time and really wasn't thrilled but never hurts to re-watch it, the stories are daft but do give a macabre twist to the stories, even though the acting is mediocre, no one will get a award for their acting, it was entertaining with some good make up effects done in the first segment.

I always liked this as Freaky fairytales on VHS, sure it aint no masterpiece but it's a good hour and an half of goofy nonsense with a few decent effects thrown in.
For the time as a straight to video kerfuffle i think it was above average at least.
