"Don't skimp on the meat"

Advantages: Impressive blu-ray set
Disadvantages: Largely unimpressive film

...A review of Arrow’s limited edition blu-ray set, which is about £25 on amazon at the moment (but will presumably increase in price when the print run sells out.) Texas Chainsaw Massacre is up there with the very best horror films ever made. There really ...

You Check In Alive... But Check Out Dead!

Advantages: Kind of entertaining, good sound
Disadvantages: Overblown and camp

A review of the Video International DVD, about £6 on amazon. This should not under any circumstances be confused with the unpleasant cannibal film of the same name directed by Umberto Lenzi. This is a horror film from 1977, director Tobe Hooper’s next ...

I'm Sure I've Seen That Before!

DIY Death

Advantages: Nasty and genuinely frightening
Disadvantages: Only good within its class - unfulfilling storyline

Bit by bit by bit he carved a nightmare!

Advantages: Some good OTT acting from the killer
Disadvantages: Dull, bad story, unimpressive acting

A review of just the film. Vipco released a heavily cut version of the film, but it’s now out of print. An uncut region 1 can be bought through amazon for about £7. This is a scummy video nasty from 1978. It’s one of the few that goes some way towards ...
