    I mean, seriously, WTF? Not only is this by far my new favourite Nicholas Cage film, but this goes above and beyond anything I've seen for some time.

    Through a clever use of colour and psychedelic themes, Mandy offers a 'trippy' take on your traditional revenge plot. Imagine Friday the 13th on acid. The killing…

    Hellraiser - 1987

    Hellraiser has a lot of tools in its arsenal that make it one of the darker horror films of the 80s, highlighting that one fear most of us have. The fear of the unknown.

    Its strongest asset is an engrossing storyline, which gets darker and more twisted with every minute that passes. The literal idea of hell 'coming to life' is indeed…
