    The Night of the Hunter

    ★★★★★

    Very evocative, stylistically beautiful and an excellent movie in which Robert Mitchum plays the diabolic Harry Powell, which do it extremely well. Directed by Charles Laughton and the film was unfortunately many hits when it came out and contributed to Charles Laughton lost the courage to make more films. A great shame, because the film is an evocative masterpiece and needed to be seen by all.

    The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension

    Why is there a watermelon there?

    Holy moly what the hell was that I just watched? Completely insane far out of all the dimensions of the strangest - but most brilliant, entertaining and surprising thing I've seen for some time. A film that I never had read or heard of before, which should be absolutely impossible with the truckload of cast! I mean, just look at it.

    Really a bizarre film and story that's include Buckaroo Banzai (Peter Weller) as…

    ★★★

    Love it, nice throwback to Razorback but it's just a shame that even after lots of the cool practical effects, then they just take the easy option and using some unforgivable bad CGI effects.

  • Ghost Stories

    Ghost Stories

    ★★★★

    A small British horror anthology, with three different but very atmospheric, disturbing and intense stories that are well-timed. A bit of a puzzle game horror goodie with good performances and some nightmarish images and full of amazing cinematography. Definitely worth seeing.

    Darkman

    ★★★★★

    Film #6 of Hoop-tober 2018

    Sam Raimi wasn't lucky to obtain the rights for The Shadow, so he made Darkman instead with twisted super anti-hero Liam Neeson. And what a fine piece it is and looks super glorious on blu-ray from Scream Factory too. A revisit today makes Darkman obvious reasons very 90s, but Raimi's direction makes it timeless. Its blackly comic approach and it's wild, surreal images are unique and filled with gripping drama, action and strong characters.

    Halloween

    ★★★★

    Film #33 of Hoop-tober 2018

    Triick or treeat.. Ohh, what a treat!

    Simple yet brutal. David Gordon Green and Danny McBride’s take on Halloween was amazing, I loved it. This is just what this franchise needs. This one is one hell of a delivery and could be known as the sequel to truly pay homage to the classic. It brings you right back to what you loved about the original.

    The cinematography feels just as raw and truthful too, not…
