  • Halloween 1978

    ★★★★★ Watched 31 Oct, 2014

    Film 31 of #31DaysofHorror

    After 31 days and 31 films I have reached the pinnacle of my horror movie accession, John Carpenter's Halloween is that reward to myself for watching shit horror films earlier on in the month.

    With another October 31st upon us I always have great pleasure in visiting Hadonfield, seeing how a young Michael Myers is doing. Is he going to be nice to his topless sister? Or is he going to take the path to which…

  • The Thing 1982

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 30 Oct, 2014

    Film 30 of #31DaysofHorror

    My review will never be as good as yours. I am not sure I can convey like you can how great the film is and how much I love it, but please know that I wanted to write something exciting for you all to read. I wanted to relay how awesome and scary The Thing is, and how well it stands up today, 32-years later. Unfortunately all that came out was what you're reading.

    Great film, bad review.

  • Nosferatu 1922

    ★★★★ Rewatched 29 Oct, 2014

    Film 29 of #31DaysofHorror

    Nosferatu certainly isn't as terrifying today as it was back in 1922 yet it has lost none of its aura and poetic imagery. Murnau's most famous film is a rare gem of the silent cinema era horror.

  • The Shining 1980

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 29 Oct, 2014

    Film 28 of #31DaysofHorror

    Possibly my favourite horror film even if it is indecipherable and ambiguous, and at times, frustrating. The Shining is a majestic piece of cinema chocked-full of great scenes. Jack Nicholson goes above and beyond in his emphatic portrayal as struggling writer Jack Torrance, with a fetish for waiting to bash his wife Wendy's brains in as he battles with his inner demons.

    Kubrick is, was, and always will be the master. His legacy of work continues to reveal new things each time we watch them.

  • Planes, Trains and Automobiles 1987

    ★★★★★ Watched 28 Oct, 2014 2

    Wow, I didn't expect that! A film full of laughs, anecdotes and wonderful chemistry brought about by its two stars. Candy and Martin have warmed the cockles of my heart tonight.

  • Psycho 1960

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 27 Oct, 2014

    Film 27 of #31DaysofHorror

    Hitchcock's legendary film is quite simply his best in my eyes. Each and every frame is packed full of cinematic goodness giving such a pleasurable experience each time I watch it. With a stellar cast performing under the Bernhard Herman's memorable score, Psycho is the film that inspired a thousand others. Sublime cinema from the master of suspense.

  • The Lego Movie 2014

    ★★★½ Rewatched 26 Oct, 2014

    Everything was awesome, but on re-watch, it's clearly not.

  • Nightcrawler 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Oct, 2014

    Jake Gyllenhaal plays lone coyote Louis Bloom. An astutely aware of the world sociopath who roams the dark and neon-drenched streets of L.A during the twilight hours in search of the next tragedy in which he can capture on film. This skeletor-like figure preys on the police scanner, waiting for that important moment when he can swoop in, camera in hand, to report the goings on of the ill-fated denizens to the local news channels, ready for broadcast just as…

  • Fury 2014

    ★★★ Watched 23 Oct, 2014 2

    David Ayer's World War II tank drama follows a bunch of misfits lead by Brad Pitt's Wardaddy during Hitler's rule in Germany in 1945, who are the go-to team when it comes to blowing shit up.
    The film is engaging and often, edge of your seat tension led, with the battle of these huge tanks relentlessly kicking each other's arse's up on screen. Fury does suffer pacing issues throughout and the characters seem to take a back seat to the…

  • [REC] 2007

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Oct, 2014

    Film 24 of #31daysofhorror

    So much screaming that there was more blood coming from my ears than from the infected victims in this film. Still, the tenseness of it all helped with my constipation.
