Over the past couple of nights I've seen:
Crocodile (Tobe Hooper)
Return to Horror High
Children of the Corn (BD)
Night of the Living Dead (the colour version -- it's rubbish like that)
The Lady Eve
No Way Out
Beau Gest
Burial Ground: Nights of Terror

There's nothing wrong with a bit of variety, is there!?

With excellent camera work in the capital, this film is certainly not the norm when it comes to genre film making. It features Jaime Murray (Hustle, Dexter) in a large supporting role.
Great film. This was one of the ones I picked up in Home Bargains for 99p mainly due to it featuring Jaime Murray and really enjoyed it. A definite 'keeper'.

Just watched Terror Train yesterday and thought it was great. I'm surprised it is not better know outside of genre fandom. It was a shame they didn't use the Groucho Marx mask throughout the film as it was supremely creepy. This may sound a bit odd, but I thought that it actually had more of a Giallo feel to it, rather than your typical US teen slasher fest.

Watched The Rocky Horror Picture Show last night with a mate at the Tyneside Cinema. The film was great, the crowd less so - lot's of pissed up students, including one young lass who threw up next to us. I'll be going back next month for the new print of Apocalypse Now!

I think I'll watch either New York Ripper or Bay Of Blood tonight as I've just received the AWE releases in the post this week.

I picked up Crocodile in a killer creatures 10 disc cheap set a few years ago. I had no idea Hooper directed it, i really enjoyed it, as i did with the rest of the set - Croc 2, Shark Attack 1, 2,3, Spiders, Octopus 1,2 etc .All the films are good quality.

All good fun, Octopus 2 has a pretty high budget - the creature attacks an American city, forget which one.

What is The Lady Eve btw?

watched True Grit (2011) last night and thoroughly enjoyed it, Jeff Bridges is brilliant as Rooster Cogburn and it has some of the most beautiful cinematography i have ever seen.

I was at Battle Royale at that point but a mate was at Rocky Horror and said it was great with people singing and dancing. We had a similar audience problem with Peeping Tom last night with some jackass sneeringly laughing at what seemed to be just the fact that it was an old film with old fashioned dialogue.

Rocky Horror was sold out but was it full? Battle Royale was sold out but loads of people didn't turn up and so there were loads of empty seats, preventing other people from getting in.

Oh yeah, it was a great laugh, but a small minority near us did get a bit carried away and just seemed to be generally taking the piss out of the film and just being a bit obnoxious.

RHPS was about 75% full despite being sold out; it's a bit annoying to know that people were buying tickets for the others and not turning up, or we could have got to see The Shining or BR.

My copy of Crocodile came in the B-Movie Collection box set along with the colourised Night of the Living Dead, Return of the Killer Tomatoes, Rats and other such oddities.

The Lady Eve is a 1941 romantic comedy with Henry Fonda and Barbara Stanwyck, written and directed by Preston Sturges, the man who made the brilliant Sullivan's Travels.

The Lady Eve sounds good, just ordered it, 3.99, you can't really go wrong. I love comedies from the thirties/forties. The Thin Man box set is one of my best dvds full stop. I wouldn't swap it for the entire Arrow/Shameless back catalogue.

Not seen too much of Stanwyck, just Forty Guns and Double Indemnity spring to mind from my collection.

Watched Moon, which I thought was pretty good and The Sword and the Sorcerer which I haven't seen since I was a kid and is still a fun watch.
