Boys & Ghouls Come Out To Play... WHO CAN KILL A CHILD? Reviewed

DVD. R1.  Dark Sky / MPI. Unrated

Who Could Kill A Child? That’s the provocative question posed in the title of Narcisco Ibanez Serrador’s fabled 1976 Euroshocker… actually, that’s just one of the many  titles which has been attached to Serrador’s picture, and probably the most appropriate given that it’s a straight translation of the original Spanish title ¿Quién Puede Matar a un Niño?… others have included Would You Kill a Child?, Death is Child’s Play, Lucifer’s Curse, The Killer’s Playground, Trapped, Island Of The Damned and that old standby, Island Of Death …a rose by any other name would smell as sweet and Serrador mounts this hybrid of Hitchcock’s The Birds (1963) and Wolf Rilla’s Village Of The Damned (1960)  in impressive style, so very impressive that it would come to exert an obvious influence over such subsequent fare as Fritz Kiersch’s Children Of The Corn (1984). 1,183 more words

Por el Amor de Horror (For the Love of Horror)

My love affair with Spanish cinema began when I first saw Un Chien Andalou (1929) as a wide-eyed undergrad in my first Film History class.  I watched, awe-struck, as a razor sliced open a woman’s eye (or did it?) and my cinematic horizons were infinitely and irreversibly expanded.   726 more words

Stormy nights bring madness in Mexico ‘The Similars’ - movie review

The former champion San Francisco Giants Brian Wilson said it best, “let’s get weird”. From the moment the noir looking feature from Isaac Ezban gets started that may be the thoughts in your head. 380 more words

Brain Drain On The Train... HORROR EXPRESS Reviewed

BD / DVD Combi. Regions A/1. Severin. Unrated.

If you’ll indulge me in a spot of nostalgia (and just try stopping me!), Eugenio Martin’s Horror Express (Pánico En El Transiberiano, 1972) was – along with the likes of Witchfinder General, Tales From The Crypt, et al – a regular fixture on the Friday late night horror slot with which Granada TV used to enliven my humdrum adolescence. 1,592 more words
