    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.

  • La dolce vita 1960

    ★★★★ Rewatched 22 Oct, 2014

    Just as I thought, upon another viewing La Dolce Vita shows me things I didn't quite see at first glance and that with patience, comes reward. I'm looking forward to subsequent viewings to gain more fulfilment from Fellini's much talked about masterpiece.

    ***Original Review***

    Fellini's films have always divided my opinions, no two are the same. I have a lot of adoration for Amarcord, 8 1/2 and La Strada but there's always the films in between that I struggle with,…

  • The Innocents 1961

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Oct, 2014

    Film 22 of #31DaysofHorror

    a suspenseful film that only gives away small amounts of scares and keeping the big one for the films finale. Deborah Kerr is not only beautiful in front of the camera, she's also emphatically engaged in her role as Governess. The stark black and white cinematography adds another sinister feel to the film, with shadows lurking in every scene, The Innocents manages to be sophisticated in its horror. A rare gem from a by gone era.

  • The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari 1920

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Oct, 2014

    Film 21 of #31DaysofHorror

    Robert Weine has created a intricate and visionary piece of cinema that is not only frightening, but beautiful. With ingenious set designs and make up alike, Das Cabinet des Dr Caligari is every bit as enjoyable as I have read/heard about.

  • Tucker and Dale vs Evil 2010

    ★★★★ Rewatched 20 Oct, 2014

    Film 20 of #31DaysofHorror

    The film that taught us the true meaning of 'Never judge a book by its cover' is so dumb, and so much fun, I even watch it at Christmas. A great paring of Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk carry the film for its brief runtime, giving the audience plenty of laughs (and a few scares) along the way. Plenty of the clichéness that usually bogs down horror films but here, director Eli Craig uses them to satirical good use. A funny, un-apologetic horror/comedy that will have you laughing and cringing in equal measure.

    Now, where's the sequel dammit?

  • The Texas Chain Saw Massacre 1974

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 20 Oct, 2014

    Film 19 of #31DaysofHorror

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is the real deal. It is still as pant-shitingly terrifying today as the day I first shit myself watching it. The tone, the mood and the soul-scratching score is beyond question, sublime.

    Film 14 of #31DaysofHorror

    An anti-climatic experience that drags the viewer through a series of petty bickering with the colleagues of an asbestos removal firm working in an abandoned sanitarium before it decides to find a second gear in the finale act. By then, I was begging for a lobotomy to forget the past hour that I have had to endure. The only effective feature of the film was the minimal, restive score, which gives a certain aura of the impending doom.
