  • Deathgasm

    Deathgasm 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Aug, 2015

    FrightFest 2015

    Hugely enjoyable demons-take-over-small-New-Zealand-town-after being-summoned-through-the-power-of-heavy-metal film. Loads of great metal references, tonnes of gore, lots of fun.

    (In the cold light of day it's probably not a four star film but at a Saturday night FrightFest screening it sure as hell was.)

  • Shut In

    Shut In 2015

    ★★★ Watched 29 Aug, 2015

    FrightFest 2015

    Effective home invasion with a twist, although the third act is somewhat laboured and explained to within an inch of its life. Not bad though.

  • Bloodsport

    Bloodsport 1988

    ★★★★ Rewatched 27 Jan, 2012 4

    Depending on which of the two types of martial arts movie plot you prefer (fighting your way through a tournament to avenge the death/injury of your friend/relative or learning a new martial arts technique from an old master to avenge the death/injury of your friend/relative) then either this or Kickboxer is Van Damme's best film. Although he should have won two best actor Oscars for Double Impact, obviously.

  • Dawn of the Dead

    Dawn of the Dead 2004

    ★★★½ Watched 13 Apr, 2012

    I have a dog. He loves going for walks - it's his favourite thing to do. So if I ever find myself on a lovely country stroll without the dog, I feel guilt and shame. That guilt and shame is the same as I felt when I enjoyed the Dawn of the Dead remake. OH GOD I'M SORRY GEORGE.
