Edgar Allen Slow

Advantages: The third story is great
Disadvantages: The first two stories are less good

This Arrow Blu-ray is a mere £9 on amazon at the moment. There was a boom in gothic horror movies in the late 50s and early 60s. One of the main strands of this boom was Roger Cormanís series of Edgar Allen Poe movies, most starring Vincent Price. While ...

Slithering slimy slaughter

Advantages: It's funny, if you like that kind of thing
Disadvantages: It isn't meant to be funny

This Arrow Video Blu-ray is currently about £13 on amazon and the same in HMV. Revenge of nature films, in which animals rise up and punish man for his scientific hubris, were pretty big business at one point. Iím surprised we arenít seeing another spate ...

Fish tales

Advantages: The third film is kind of fun, good picture quality on 2 and 4

"Did ye make some unholy bond with that goat?"

Advantages: Good film, brilliantly acted, looks amazing
Disadvantages: No extras at all

...This blu-ray is only £10 in HMV and on amazon. This is a fairly new horror film in which a Puritan family in New England in (I guess) the 17th century is troubled by possible witchery. It fits in with the recently trendy idea of Ďfolk horrorí, and althou ...
