Horror with balls

Advantages: The first film is a classic
Disadvantages: The other four films are most emphatically not classic

...This limited edition boxset from Arrow films is £70 on amazon at time of writing. Phantasm is a venerable horror franchise that never quite made it to the kind of public recognition of Halloween or Nightmare on Elm Street, but which has a fairly passion ...

The Tall Man is coming!

Advantages: It comes in a cool "phantasm sphere", which contains four good films - and a bonus disc!
Disadvantages: This series may not be for your run-of-the-mill horror fan - it's a cult type of series!

...Baldwin plays a kid who suspects something is up at the local cemetary - he goes to investigate and finds all kinds of weird things going on in the mortuary at the hands of the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm). As the series goes on he grows up and t ...

Hail to the King, baby!

Advantages: Quirky concept, a stand-out performance from Campbell, cracking and entertaining dialogue.
