Children are evil…or are they?!

Children are evil…or are they?!

I finally got round to watching Island Of The Damned (1976) last night. This is a film I know absolutely nothing about, but I guess I was intrigued by the prospect of a Spanish horror film made in the 70s. The film starts with an introduction devoted to various wars – WW2, the Indo-Pakistani Wars, … Continue reading

Shockwaves (1977)

Shockwaves (1977)

I’m a bit sad that Shockwavesisn’t more awesome. It’s the kind of film that would be fun to recommend in a “you have to see this underwater nazi zombie film!” kinda way. Seriuosly, underwater nazi zombies! How can that be bad? Well, it isn’t that bad, but it just isn’t that exciting either. Don’t get … Continue reading

The problem with lists

It’s an absolutely terrible film and I kind of enjoyed watching it, but I would never call it good in any way, shape or form. Let’s call it so bad that … Continue reading

Swamp Thing (1982)

Swamp Thing (1982)

“Everything’s a dream when you’re alone” That’s just one of many pseudo-philosphical one-liners you get treated to in Swamp Thing, Wes Craven’s attempt at adapting a DC Comic for the big screen. I know nothing about this comic, or comics in general, so I have no idea if it’s a successful/truthful adaptation – all I … Continue reading

Chopping Mall (1986)

Chopping Mall (1986)

How can you not love a film that contains lines like: “Let’s go send these fuckers a Rambo-gram” and “What’s that? Robot blood.” and “Computer, huh? Let’s go crash the fucker” and “I guess I’m not used to being chased around a mall in the middle of the night by killer robots” The movie…. Oh … Continue reading
