  • Black Sunday

    Black Sunday 1960

    ★★★½ Rewatched 13 Aug, 2015

    I remember seeing some of this when I was a kid and it scared the hell out of me. It still holds up as a really good atmospheric gothic horror. Barbara Steele is amazing in the dual role and for its time, it is pretty gruesome. A must see for all horror fans.

    See, original films can still be made. Not only that, the is truly frightening. If you love horror or even if you just love good quality film making, watch this. It will stick with you for a very long time.

    The Devil's Rock 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 16 May, 2012

    Being a kiwi, I love to see our industry doing well and I really enjoyed this. Its a good story, well acted and directed (good job Paul).
    It is very atmospheric with a great location and looks great. The effects are good, considering the budget and its great to see the use of physical over digital.

    So, overall, a good old fashioned horror film with some really nice touches and some fun references to other films and literature.

  • Black Dynamite

    Black Dynamite 2009

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Dec, 2014

    This is probably the best parody film I've seen since the original "Hotshots!". It is the perfect parody of the Grindhouse Blackspotation films of the early 1970's, it looks and feels exactly like one of those films.
    This is a must see if you love comedy and grindhouse films, you will laugh out loud.
