Fall. 2022.

Two friends who are experienced climbers decide to climb a 2000 foot tall radio tower, when the ladder collapses they try everything to stay alive and find out how to get help.

A few years back there was a trend on YouTube people scaling buildings, walking on the edge of a roof or a thin pole, either they were total daredevils and idiots or just want more hits for their videos, this is a bit like that but also getting your groove back into something you enjoy. This can be quite tense and yeah I was on the edge of my seat, the acting between the two main stars is good and if heights isn't your thing then best avoid this film.

I Bought a Vampire Motorcycle (1990)

How the hell have i not seen this before?

Neil Morrissey buys a motorbike which appears to have a life of it's own, especially at night where it goes out on bloody killing sprees.

A film with pretty much everything. It's like a crazed biker's version of The Evil Dead in tone. Pretty much everything is thrown at the screen as the bike decapitates folk, drains their blood using pipes and grows it's own horns and axle blades in true chariot racing style. We also get C3PO actor Anthony Daniels as an exorcism performing biker priest, a garlic chewing Michael Elphick not to mention western style bar room brawls and casual sexism galore. All that's missing really is a Motorhead soundtrack.

The effects are cheap and cheerful and the riderless bike on the attack is a pretty bizarre thing to take in. I'm sure the film makers must have seen 1973's Psychomania and thought to themselves "How can we make this really f*cking crazy?"

Watch with your sense of humour levels set to eleven and it's a great splatter comedy.

All that and i forgot to mention Burt Kwouk as Chinese takeaway owner Fu King and Morrisey's discussion with a talking turd in a pub toilet.

Watched via the extras laden Screenbound Blu-ray which looks great even though it's 1080I:50

Virtuosity

Russell Crowe is a Virtual Reality Killer who is made up with the personalities of several Serial Killers who ends up getting put into a body and goes on a rampage. Denzel Washington is a former Policeman, who murdered one of Crowe's personalities is released from Prison to stop him. William Forsyth, William Ficthner, Kelly Lynch and a 9 year old Kaley Cuoco Co-Star.

I remember picking this up in a January Sales from HMV in 97, for 7.99 on VHS (Bargin back then) it's not the greatest Film but it's definitely watchable.

Cannibal Holocaust

This is the 88 Film's Blu-Ray release and considering I've seen the Film multiple times, I was interested in the Audio Commentary from Barry Forshaw and Kim Newman.

They basically gave an overview of the Film, it's many controversies and the Cannibal Genre along with notes about the Cast and Crew. I was hoping that they would have gone into greater detail into the Film's major talking points but do bring up some great points as well.

They did go over the Animal stuff (Had to look away during but could hear the sound from the Film) and I'm glad they mentioned and called out that The Long Road To Hell scene could have been faked. It's something that got lost in the shuffle amongst it's many other talking points.

The picture looked in pristine condition and looked amazing, not gone through the other features other than watching The Trailers but it does look like 88 Films have hit another one out of the park.

That's some double bill n. Kudos!!


Smile (2022, Parker Finn)

The first thing I thought was "she was in Neighbours".
I digress.
The Hilary Swank you get off Wish. Best set up / pay off that I've seen in a good while. Great end title song. More showy than It Follows I felt.
Hmmmm.
