Most thrillers tend to follow a fairly rigorous formula. More often than not, it’s a murder or crime that triggers the thrills. Perhaps a web of conspiracy that goes all the way to the top. 349 more words


Slaughter High (1986) | Cheap thrills abound in the British-made stalk-and-slash horror

When it comes to nerds getting their revenge on their classmates, my favourite is 1974’s Horror High (aka Twisted Brain). In that film, geeky student Vernon Potts (Pat Cardi) turns himself into a rampaging monster to pick off his tormentors one by one. 355 more words

Review - Welcome To The Punch. The Strong arm of the law...

Mark Strong has made quite the career out of playing nasty, villainous hard-man types, almost becoming like a Gary Oldman of the 2000′s. The Guard, Green Lantern (I swore I’d never speak of this film again but for some reason it keeps coming back to haunt my memories) and Kick-Ass to name but a few where Strong shows off his nastier side. 436 more words

NAKED is unique amongst the films I have or will be picking for this list, in that I once spent an evening with its director, Mike Leigh. 1,059 more words
