  • The House on Sorority Row

    The House on Sorority Row 1983

    ★★★ Rewatched 25 Jun, 2016

    This movie has all the promise of a Friday The 13th, but in reality it's kind of middle tier, slightly above average for it's time. It's got all the tropes of an early 80's Slasher but in my opinion just falls short of a classic. I do think, the last 20 minutes is as good as anything that was being done at the time. The score is excellent and coupled with a great cast and some interesting kills it could…

    Happy Birthday to Me 1981

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 15 Jun, 2016

    This film was pretty much a staple of my childhood, remember renting the VHS and never being disappointed. Glad i gave this another look, the black glove killer is very much in the giallo vein. It's as close to an american giallo you will get. Really slickly made it's a notch above most of the slasher films of the time. Some of the best death scenes to grace such a movie. There's a double twist ending, really in the scooby doo variety which you will either love or hate, i happened to love it!

    The House by the Cemetery 1981

    A very strong entry in Lucio Fulci's zombie Quartet, It plays out almost as a slasher,and indeed add the haunted house subgenre into that as well. Overall Atmosphere was fantastic, coupled with quite abit of gore, This is not as action packed as say, The Beyond and City Of The Living Dead. A great slow burner, highely recomended!

    Inferno 1980

    ★★★★ Rewatched 17 Feb, 2012 12

    This is one of Argento's most underated films, It has everything, Great visuals,suspence,thrilling climax the lot! Second part of the excellent Three Mothers Trilogy. The only failing in the movie is that,well you can't top Suspira really can you? Couple it with one of his best non GOBLIN Soundtracks and you have a mini-masterpeice!
