    Alligator

    ★★★★

    Jaws is the obvious choice for July 4th, but I decided to go with this offshoot instead and actually had quite a blast with it! To call it a knock-off would be a tad unkind I think (although not totally inaccurate) as its got more to offer than a straight-up, cut-price reproduction. For starters, there's the main attraction - an animatronic alligator that puts modern CGI efforts to shame - and really looks the part of giant mutant reptile, grown…

    Four of the Apocalypse

    ★★★

    A strange western from Lucio Fulci, before the 80s splatter horrors he really became known for.

    The Sadness

    ★★★★½

    Bloody, brutal, tasteless... fucking loved it obviously. THAT's what I call a pandemic film. THAT'S the way you close out a festival. Shades of Cat III gnarliness in all the glorious practical effects, lunatic grins and dismembered body parts. For anyone who thought Busan was good but too sentimental, this is your jam. First time director Rob Jabbaz, you hit it out the park my man. A proper horror film for proper horror fans.
