Bored of the flies

Advantages: Film looks good, decent Blu-ray package
Disadvantages: Film is overlong and messy

This Blu-ray boxset from Arrow is currently £45 on amazon – it might have gone out of print. Dario Argento is revered among certain horror fans, many of whom believe he represents the genre’s artistic high watermark. I understand why people feel th ...

Pray you're not invited!

Advantages: Fun film, good Blu-ray
Disadvantages: The ending is very silly

Time For Another Scary Movie

Advantages: Another good spoof
Disadvantages: If you didn't like the first one than you'll more than likely hate the second

Once again, Keenen Ivory Wayans is back as Director and we prepare ourselves for another 'Scary Movie'. Released one year after the first film, we find in real time that our characters are now at college having progressed from High School and are now en ...
