Horror with a moral, like 'Get Out' and the ilk, not slashers and zombie films etc.. Not the fun stuff, the stuff that makes you think... haha

The Evil Down The Street. 2019.

A family begin a new life by moving into a new house that isn't haunted but possessed by evil forces through a old Ouija Board.

Most indie movies can be great and have a long line of cult followers but I have done it again...found another cheap movie that turned out to be a waste of time. With the low budget they obviously tried going for a budget doppelganger of Elon Musk who has a hard time trying to act, then suggested we can get a woman who resembles Lin Shaye who was even worse. The back ground score does try to make it more tense but just seems to be the same note played that never leads to anywhere. This was meant to be inspired by true events, next indie movie that will be inspired by true events will be my production of sticking my Vype pen up my ass, i'm sure I will get more pleasure out of that than watching this film.

Valentine. A bunch of slappers start getting sliced up by an enraged former high school contemporary. This early 2000s slasher starts off okay, and has a reasonable cast, but just gets more and more mediocre as it goes on, and the characters are so deeply unlikeable that I was rooting for the rightly enraged killer.

Surprised that no one mentioned or reviewed Netflix TCM.

I thought it was rubbish, can’t for the life of me see how anyone can like the original TCM and this in the same breath is unbelievable, I honestly think it’s an insulting film to original TCM,
It's ok if the film is not meant to be taken seriously but they keep dumbing down-some films and some are so bad these days that ppl seem to accept any trash as decent, Cashing in on franchises isn’t getting better they’re getting worse if going to carry on a film at least have the decency to have some redeeming feature that the original had, and not just make a film for the pure hell of it, some films has nothing to say but it’s just there because it can be.
It lacked everything, interest, characters, tension, atmosphere, like a lot of films just cash-in, Fed up of these soulless sequels, prequels, reboots, remakes etc.
Not all are rubbish there is some decent ones but sadly imo this isn't one of them, the ending of the trailer with the kids taking pics was enough to put me off, if I wanted comedy horror then id have watched scream or something, but I thought I'd still give benefit of the doubt and give it a whirl, sadly I gave up about halfway.

The Inspector General. 1949.

Give Danny Kaye the limelight and he can do wonders, here he is cast as a leading actor and shows his acting abilities and singing, a corrupt town official mistakes Kaye as a investigator and ensues a fun time to prove himself that he is right. There are some funny gags, musical numbers and high jinx of laughter and of course Kaye able to conduct a orchestra in his own way.

Lady Terminator (1988, Jalil Jackson)

Indo exploiter. When an ancient curse comes to fruition, hold onto your hats!
A trio of cops are saddled with a deadly foe (on a night off and all ) and all bets are off. Some hilarity and familiarity here cough cough.
Lived up to it's reputation tbh.

Dangerous Seductress tonight!!!

CARNIVAL OF BLOOD – Sketchily assembled and pretty much ad-libbed in places, ‘Carnival of Blood’ treats us to the sweat and the grime of Coney Island, where sausage-fingered women bitch at hunchbacks and a mysterious killer is etc etc. Mumbled conversations and twilit wanderings aplenty, but then you have the sheer craziness of the killer’s purple tinted psycho-dramatic regression in the final reel, plus other oddities such as a teddy bear full of offal and just the whole creepy atmosphere of fairgrounds at the fag-end of hippy. Knackered old drive-in fodder delivers the flea-bitten goods… if you really want them…

PHOBE: THE XENOPHOBIC EXPERIMENTS – When all the other kids in the neighbourhood went off to Hollywood to make ‘Predator’, the one who stayed behind kept on running around their backyard with a camcorder and came up with this. A delight of cruddy late-nineties computer graphics and massively underwhelmed ‘performances’, P:TXE’s homegrown charms are painful and heart-warming at the same time, the true measure of cult goodness IMO.

THE HALFWAY HOUSE – Boasts the mild sleaze of a semi-WIP film, a papier mache Lovecraftian tentacle beast in the cellar, a small statuette of the Virgin Mary wielded in the manner of a dildo, and Mary Woronov as a dark priestess… how could it fail to be total classic? Slightly disappointingly it comes across as merely amiable trash, and Mary (both of them) is really the best thing about it, but enjoyable nonetheless and worth a look if you don’t have to resort to expensive imports.

DEAD HOUSE – I’ve overstepped my budget on this new flat I’m renting, hence less costly splashouts and more viewing of obscure drivel on Prime. Well, obviously there’s some total rubbish on there but the fun of it is in stumbling on a ‘find’, which brings me to ‘Dead House’. It’s a nasty, grimy Italian (/British?) horror flick which merges the grot of a brutal home invasion with pretty gory zombie action; the ludicrous monster they throw in is just the icing on the cake. It’s as silly and nonsensical as it sounds, but an underlying nastiness prevents it from being too much of a good laugh – which makes it more interesting in my eyes. Definitely worth a punt if you’re browsing Prime and happen to be in the mood for some grim zombie sleaze.

SHADOW IN THE CLOUD – Chloe Moretz hitches a ride aboard a WW2 fighter plane and finds that its crew of sexist yahoos is the least of her worries – yep, that’s a real-life gremlin perched on that there fuselage. ‘Shadow In The Cloud’ is a lot of fun, popcorn riddled with metaphors but more bothered about ridiculous plane-wing acrobatics; I actually wanted it to bring out more of the weird fairy-tale tone that occasionally surfaces, but it’s amusing and entertaining enough as it is.

THE CLOVEHITCH KILLER – Smalltown boy is worried that his pa might be the local serial killer – cue investigative fumblings and, stashed beneath the floorboards, boxes full of dadporn. ‘The Clovehitch Killer’ is measured and subdued in its approach, and what it does really well is capture the strange, still atmosphere of little suburbs full of neat lawns, bungalows and religion. It perhaps slips up a little when it veers away from claustrophobic atmospherics for the sake of some on-the nose dramatics; but I do recommend it, it’s compelling enough to work as a more serious, downbeat answer to “The Summer of 84”.
