2007 directed by Dom Rotheroe



Nice little independent British horror/thriller..

A seemingly normal family collapse under financial pressure..
Another of the "found footage" genre, but very well done, tightly scripted and very well acted..

Good effort 4/5

Strangler of the Swamp
1946




Atmospheric poverty row chiller from PRC studio stariing Charles Middleton who I remember as Ming the Merciless from the Flash Gordon serials..
No, I'm not that old..but they were re shown on tv in the mid 70's.

I've always wanted to see this and watched it last night for free on you tube.
Although obviously made on a budget of 4 dollars, its very atmospheric and quite well done.. I reckon most of the budget went on the fog machine..

Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool



Romantic drama based on the memoir by Peter Taylor telling the story of aging film star Gloria Grahame, diagnosed with cancer and her romance with a young British actor.. Mainly set set in Liverpool in the late 70's..

I'm quite a fan of Ms Grahame's (IN A Lonely Place) and thought Annette Bening, who I'm also a fan of.. was excellent in this, as was the whole cast..

Added to that I thought they got the period detail just right and I really liked the way they effortlessly moved back and forward in time, not something thats often acomplished so well..

Very good .

^ Agreed. That cutting around in time could have been very confusing, but wasn't (thanks partly, if I recall right) by the use of intertitles giving the date and place.

I'd almost like to see it a second time, though, to more clearly understand what was going on in some of the early flashbacks.

I liked the way characters walked through doors and appeared the other side in a diff time and place.. It just seemed to flow and work well. I'd def watch it again at some point.
I also enjoyed the performances and dynamics of the family in Liverpool dealing with having a Hollywood star living with them. Lots of humour and pathos... Some really good performances..

A Dark Song
2016 Written and Directed by Liam Gavin



Wow !!!

An Irish independant horror film starring Steve Oram and Catherine Walker

Basically a two hander..
A woman who's son has been murderd turns to an occultist who promises her that by following certain rituals she will be able to comunicte with her son and get vengance on those responsible for his murder..

but at a cost..

I found this a very powerful film indeed, dealing with issues such as love, loss and faith.. It went places I really wasn't expecting and I don't want to spoil it for anyone by saying any more. Both performances were superb.. I'm certainly no expert on the occult ( tho I remember reading about Aleister Crowley a little at college) but this film definitely opens up all kinds of questions..

Recommended..

I watched this on a rainy sunday afternoon I had no idea what was about but couldn't stop watching until the end. I don't know why so many bad reviews. You need to be on the mood to watch it, the atmosphere is a little depressing.

Hello

Remembering George A. Romero

"Day of the Dead"


For me one of the best horror films ever made and one of the biggest disappointments in the history of film, because he could not film his original screenplay.

And the performance by Lori Cardille is my favourite performance by an actress (along Jessica Walter in "Play Misty for Me").

I saw Lucy on a plane and remember enjoying it, tho I may have been suffering from that thing when flying  (forgotten the name)
Where your senses and emotions are heightened and films can affect you more..

Day of the Dead is great also...

Yes... and the last. 

I swear Robert Wise had Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" in mind when making "Star Trek: The Motion Picture."  There are many similar, long, drawn out boring-ass dull sequences.  The only thing I can appreciate is the link to The King Of Rock & Roll with the film’s iconic orchestral theme.

Cash On Demand 1961



A rather obscure Hammer film starring the always excellent Peter Cushing as a bank manager up against a bank robber who's holding Cushings family to ransom..

I thought this was really very good and very tense... adapted from a play..

I enjoy 2001, 2010, and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. It's been a long time since I've seen them, but I think they're all pretty different movies actually. There's been discussion on the board before about 2001, some like it, some don't. It's all good. I've watched it a few times.

I like the Psycho sequels too, though III might be my least favorite out of them. They're definitely movies I can watch from time to time. It always surprises me just how much I like Psycho II. Might be one of my favorite sequels of all time.
