New York Ripper (1982)

New York Ripper - New York City: It's a nice place to visit, but you wouldn't want to die there!

Ah, Lucio Fulci. He stopped making sex comedies just in time for his now-legendary forays into horror to get him banned in the UK. Mr. Fulci has the dubious honour of three of his films - The Beyond, The House by the Cemetery and Zombie - appearing on the infamous video nasties list of '84, a list dominated, incidentally, by his countrymen.

Night Train Murders (AKA Don't Ride on Late Night Trains or L'ultimo treno della notte)

I have to say that about halfway through this film I was ready dismiss it as rather longwinded and aimless: not only does Night Train Murders (aka Don't Ride on Late Night Trains or L'ultimo treno della notte) manage to claw its way back, but I ended up being rather impressed by this low-key example of exploitation fare which plays its cards very c...

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge - Someone is coming back to Elm Street!

Faced with having to express an opinion on the whole Elm Street franchise, the most daunting one to rein judgment upon has to be the second installment, Freddy's Revenge. The main reason for this is due to the two very different scenarios in which this movie has seduced my retina and caressed my occipital lobes.Scenario one is as a horror newbie wh...

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors - If you think you'll get out alive, You must be dreaming.

Despite being one of the better sequels in the Elm Street franchise, A Nightmare on Elms Street 3: Dream Warriors is definitely the turning point where Freddy starts to show off to his audience and begins the descending spiral towards the cartoon character he is destined to become. For the most part, director Chuck Russell manages to recapture the ... Click to read more "A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors"

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master - You shouldn't have buried me, I'm not dead

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master is the first indication that the franchise has less of a future than a marriage between Ted Bundy and a snuff fetishist. From the lame 80s opening music performed by Patricia Arquette's Kristen replacement (Tuesday Knight), the fact that they had to replace Kristen with another actress in the first plac...

A NIghtmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child - Now Freddy's A Daddy, He's Killing For Two.

I'm not even going to try and bullshit you: I love everything Freddy. EVERYTHING. Perhaps it's because he encompasses everything I am - evil & sadistic with a dark sense of humor. Or maybe it's because I like my villains with personality. I also grew up (I use that term loosely) on the Nightmare on Elm Street Series and I hold them close to my hear...

A Nightmare on Elm Street 6: Freddy's Dead - The Final Nightmare

The metamorphosis of Freddy Krueger from nightmarishly intimidating boogeyman to ridiculous pussified cartoon character reaches its climax of juvenile and uninspiring humour with the sixth Elm Street; Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare. The character of Freddy is already dead by this instalment in the franchise, they should have given up with him w... Click to read more "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare"

Nightmares in a Damaged Brain - The Dream You Can't Escape ALIVE!

Compared to a number of non-shocking movies on the video nasty list Nightmares in a Damaged Brain (also known as just Nightmare and also known as Blood Splash and Schizo) is well deserved of it's designation of nasty. Not only is the movie superbly gory, sleazy and violent it is put together in a way that really messes with the hub of the nervous s... Click to read more "Nightmares in a Damaged Brain"

Second in Park Chan-wook's Vengeance Trilogy is the intense and emotional excursion through the imprisonment of Oh Dae-su (Min-sik Choi) in Oldboy. The movie depicts an intricately complex vengeance plot that carefully reveals it's intricacies as the movie progresses, circumspectly explaining the reasons for Oh Dae-su's seemingly harsh treatment at...
