  • Diana 2013

    Watched 11 Apr, 2014

    Naomi Watts will recover from this debacle but the most devastating and depressing thing about Diana is that this toxic piece of soap-opera was clumped together by the man who directed Downfall.

    Let that sink in for a minute. Even M. Night Shyamalan would turn his head away from this guy.

    4. George Clooney's leather nipples.
    5. Bat bombs. Bat…

    "It was always you, Helen. Come with me and be immortal."

    This classic frightened a generation of their own bathroom mirrors. Totally under-appreciated upon it's release, even to this day but Bernard Rose's contemporary horror based on the short story, The Forbidden, by Clive Barker is a minor masterpiece and features a menacing performance from Tony Todd.
