    They'll Love Me When I'm Dead

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I spent about 80 minutes thinking this film was pretty average and an annoying attempt at doing an F For Fake but with his film ‘The Other Side of the Wind’ as the subject. Right at the end they justify this and I’d love to watch this again. Not perfect but very interesting.

    ★★★

    Action packed short film that aims squarely for entertainment and big laughs. Almost instantly forgettable but fun whilst it lasts.

    Still feels fresh almost 20 years after its release. I watched it when it was originally released on VHS and it stuck with me ever since. Just brilliant.

    ★★★★½

    Friday 13th means horror film viewing! This is genuinely a brilliant film. It walks close to the line of being a horror-by-numbers sort of film, but manages to feel fresh regardless. The delivery of three separate short stories harks back to the classic portmanteau horror films. All four key central actors are spot on. I can’t say why I like it so much without ruining it. I definitely recommend this one.
