Theatre Review

The Statement (2003)

A Nazi war criminal is hunted by a pair of investigators seeking justice for the crimes he committed both during World War 2 and since. 144 more words


Lifeforce (1985)

Lifeforce, director Tobe Hooper’s foray into space based terror, is very much a product of its time. The Sci-fi / horror starring Steve Railsback, Peter Firth, Mathilda May and Frank Finlay (as well as a brief surprise appearance by Patrick Stewart), is one of those films with an unmistakable 1980’s air which stands up surprisingly well after nearly thirty years – well almost. 361 more words


Murder By Decree (1978)

Only a cynic would claim that a film which had disappeared from view for so many years, got an airing on DVD due to the Academy Award recognition in recent years of its main star Christopher Plummer, or the resurgence in popularity of its central character Sherlock Holmes thanks to the films of ex Mr Madonna, Guy Ritchie.  585 more words
