Every body has a secret

Advantages: Good, creepy horror movie
Disadvantages: Weak ending, poor CGI

...This Blu-ray is £12 on amazon and HMV at the moment. So this was a surprise. The director of Trollhunter, a Norwegian knockabout found-footage horror film about guys hunting trolls, has now made a really creepy little movie about morticians in Virginia. ...

The naked and the dead

Advantages: Good music, decent picture quality

Doing God's work

Advantages: A great transfer of a great film
Disadvantages: The commentary is oddly pointless

This Odeon Blu-Ray costs £15 at the moment. It will doubtless come down in price. Michael Reeves was the doomed wonder kid of 60s British horror. He only made three films, but his reputation is unshakeable. It largely rests on this film, released in th ...
