    Night Life

    ★★★

    Scott Grimes (who it seems was far more prolific than I had previously realised during the eighties) stars as an aspiring mortuary assistant in this uneven but enjoyable horror/comedy/zombie hybrid which also features John Astin as his grumpy mortician uncle.
    The plot tends to lack focus and far too much time is spent laying the foundations for the events that eventually ensue during the last half hour, but there are some laughs, a few genuinely creepy moments and some very effective practical gore effects that elevate Night Life above similar fare of the era.
    Well worth a watch!

    Watch out for the poor horse being hit on the head by a motorcycle wheel during a chase scene among the dunes - I physically winced !!

    Death Race 2000

    ★★★½

    Is that a grenade?
    A hand grenade.

    (I laughed!)

    I saw Death Race 2000 many, many moons ago when I was a kid... I thought the cars were SOOOO COOOOL and I remember being shocked by the blood. However, I think I probably saw a heavily censored version because I certainly don't recall the rampant nudity and head crushing!!
    This is reality TV 70's style... the commentary by the TV reporter is amusingly cringe-worthy, the fashion is larey and while…
