    The Diabolical

    ★★½

    I won't go too much into the plot of this supernatural horror film other than saying it's about a mother and her two children who are so affected by ghostly activity they are unable to leave their home. Although there's a lot more to it than that.

    ★★★★

    It struck me towards the end of this master piece how visual effects legend Ray Harryhausen lulls you into proceedings. Beginning with the statuesque Talos, a slow moving almost lumbering giant cast out of bronze. Then we have a couple of Harpies, more complex in their movements especially when in flight.

    The Clashing Rocks are the calm before the storm so to speak because soon after the shit really does hit the stop motion fan with the multi headed snake…
