    1945

    Ever seen a Hungarian western?

    1945 isn't *really* a western but I was quite encouraged to find, reading around some bits and pieces about this film having just watched it, that a couple of other writers had commented on its similarity to the genre. It means I'm not quite as insane as I thought I was.

    The similarities are fairly numerous though. A small town is thrown into chaos with the arrival of a couple of strangers, with the requisite…

    The Plague of the Zombies

    In the Month of Madness - The Others

    Amazing to think that Night of the Living Dead was released just two years after this rather more traditional take on the zombie flick, courtesy of Hammer.

    This one ventures down the old-fashioned voodoo track, with the zombies in question moving even more slowly than in George Romero's classic. That said, it's still an enjoyable old thing, as Hammer films tend to be. Rarely anything amazing but rarely a letdown either, perfect…
