Film Review No.351: Nightbreed – The Director’s Cut

Nightbreed-1

Little over a week ago I wrote a Weekend Dump post about 5 films I felt need a UK home media release. One of those films was Clive Barker’s Nightbreed. A few days later I’m looking over the US Netflix, which is so much better than the UK one, and lo and behold the director’s cut of Nightbreed had been added to their service. That’s pretty damn cool. I’ve not seen the film since I was a little lad and here’s a nice, new, extended and re-cut version for my eyeballs to enjoy. And now here’s my review for you guys to enjoy. Maybe. If that’s what happens when people read reviews. Click the link below.

Film Review No.350: Kung Fu Cannibals (AKA: Raw Force)

Kung-Fu-Cannibals-1

Whenever I hit a milestone review, as in every 50 or on The Film Dump’s birthday, I like to review a special film. More often than not special actually means “special”. Like that bus that drove you to school. Kung Fu Cannibals, known as Raw Force in some parts of the world, is that bus. This wasn’t the film I had planned originally, but Matt over as Cinemageddon kinda forced me to watch it because he’s a dick like that. He insisted it was better than Miami Connection. This was despite me insisting that no film is better than Miami Connection. Anyway, follow the link for the review.

HORROR WEEK 2014: Film Review No.345: Halloween IV: The Return of Michael Myers

Halloween-4-3

And so we draw to the end of Horror Week 2014, and what a ghoulish/weird time it was. But, alas, all things must end. There is only one correct way to end a horror week and that is with a film with the word Halloween in title. I’ve already reviewed 3 of these films, one every Halloween… and so… it has come to pass… tonight, we look at Halloween IV: The Return of Michael Myers. Oooooo…

Because money talks and the Silver Shamrock sucked.


HORROR WEEK 2014: Film Review No.344: A Bay of Blood

Bay-of-blood-2

AKA Twitch of the Death Nerve. AKA Bloodbath. AKA The film that kinda started it all. Well, if by “all” you mean “slasher movies”, which is a statement I kinda disagree with a little. Kinda. Don’t lynch me! I don’t debate that Bay of Blood laid the template many slasher films, especially Friday The 13th, would follow. But I’d argue that the concept of a slasher movie had existed for decade in Psycho, Peeping Tom and even Kind Hearts and Coronets. The idea of a serial killer taking out many, many, people wasn’t new. But Bay of Blood did, certainly, add a whole lot of gore and established a bunch of new tropes. Click the link below for me saying what I think of the film itself.

A twitch of the mouse click nerve.


HORROR WEEK 2014: Film Review No.343: Slugs – The Movie

Slugs-3

Well, I guess reviewing Slugs was pretty much inevitable for this here film blogzone thing. I do like to occasionally dip my toe into the world of low budget so-bad-they’re-good movies. Boy did I get one here. Recommended to me by a Twitter follower known as Once_Tricky, so I have him to blame for this, Slugs is a film about a town under siege by toxic, flesh eating slugs. I’m pretty sure The Goodies did a sketch like this. So, what is Slugs actually like… Click the link and I’ll try my best to explain.

Slugs are easily the worst threat mankind could ever face.


HORROR WEEK 2014: Film Review No.342: Society

Society-1

Oh Brian Yuzna, you are a special kind of director. Possibly, I’d say, the closest thing horror has had to an Argento or a Fulci in the last couple of decades. Argento certainly isn’t Argento anymore. What Yuzna likes to do, when not writing Honey I Shrunk The Kids films, is take a story of something potentially dark, show you that darkness and then crank that darkness to 11 via a short segway into absolute balls out weirdness. One film that does this with quite some ballsy amount of style is his 1989 film Society. Click the link below for my review where I’ll try as hard as possible to not spoil how weird this film gets.

Not wincest at all.


Film Review No.339: Dead Heat

Dead-Heat-3

Gawd I’m way behind on getting this review done. The last week has been quite busy for me. I recorded about 3 hours of gaming fun for my mellow gaming Youtube channel, followed that up with an 85 minute podcast called Critapocalypse and have spent the last 4 days editing these things. Now, is finally the time for me to get back to reviewing them film things I review. Ladies and gets, here is Dead Heat.

After you click this of course.
