Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
8/10 No Score Yet Flesh and Blood: The Hammer Heritage of Horror (1994) Whether you know the Hammer story inside and out or not, this is a wonderfully entertaining run through the ups and downs of one of the UK's biggest film exports.‐ Starburst

8/10 82% Mayhem (2017) It's a hell of a ride that gives us a deeply satirical look at office politics and provides a massive amount of wish fulfilment.‐ Starburst

6/10 39% Mary Shelley (2018) Perhaps the approach taken by the forgotten Lewis Carrol biopic Dreamchild (1985) would have better served the subject as the author clearly saw herself as the creature of her creation: lonely, outcast, and neglected.‐ Starburst

9/10 No Score Yet Simon Marsden: A Life in Pictures (2018) As visually striking as Marsden's work itself, this a documentary that not only educates on the subject but is also entertaining and fascinating.‐ Starburst

8/10 47% How to Talk to Girls at Parties (2018) [It] is very rewarding for those in the right frame of mind and is destined to be a cult classic of the future. Just like the director's other work.‐ Starburst

4/10 No Score Yet Fairy Tales (1979) Watching forty years on, the result is quite painful. None of the musical numbers neither work or nor are memorable -- not even the one sung by Motown queen Martha Reeves (yes, of the Vandellas fame!). ‐ Starburst

8/10 78% Alice, Sweet Alice (Communion) (1976) Well regarded among horror fans, Alice Sweet Alice has aged surprisingly well and stands up to repeated viewings like many of the best films of the seventies, particularly with its look and style. ‐ Starburst

8/10 82% Ghost Stories (2018) The three stories are all brilliantly relayed in an almost effortless way, and there's an undercurrent of social commentary throughout. ‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet A Cat in the Brain (Un gatto nel cervello) (Nightmare Concert) (1990) It has got enough going for it to merit interest, and shouldn't be overlooked if you have a penchant for ocular trauma.‐ Starburst

8/10 No Score Yet Crucible of the Vampire (2017) As it is, it's a fine stab at bringing back a style of movie that is sorely missed by many.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Bigfoot Country (2017) It's certainly worth your time if you have a penchant for crypto movies and undemanding thrills.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Fair Game (1986) Beautifully shot and making the most of the Outback location, had it not had the occasional scene that takes place in the town, it could easily be mistaken for post-apocalyptic in scope.‐ Starburst

7/10 70% X: Night of Vengeance (2011) A stylish but totally realistic view of the subject. ‐ Starburst

9/10 94% Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation! (2008) This is a documentary worth checking out. If you're remotely interested in exploitation movies, or indeed, world cinema itself, it's invaluable and thoroughly entertaining.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Bag Boy Lover Boy (2014) It's certainly not for everyone, but there will definitely be an audience for this oddity.‐ Starburst

9/10 No Score Yet Cremator (Spalovac Mrtvol) (1969) Not only is it an immensely entertaining movie, it's a work of art that should be on the list of anyone looking to understand filmmaking and cinematography. ‐ Starburst

6/10 No Score Yet Suffer Little Children (1984) It's certainly not essential, but as an example of what you can do with a bit of ingenuity, it's worth checking out.‐ Starburst

9/10 95% House of Wax (1953) The film's place in cinema history is already secured as it's genuinely one of the best of the fifties horror thrillers from Warner Bros, with Price at his best - being both sympathetic and sinister. ‐ Starburst

5/10 71% The Ritual (2017) It's just a shame the same old Blair Witch and cabin in the woods ideas are rehashed, as the central premise of guilt, grief, and the handling of trauma in a group of friends is interesting - particularly the very 'laddish' ensemble we're presented with.‐ Starburst

8/10 No Score Yet #FromJennifer (2017) Taking a timely swipe at the Internet-fame hungry crowd we're faced with on a daily basis (and that make us dread using YouTube these days), #FromJennifer is a brilliantly entertaining - and shocking - tale.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Granny Of The Dead (2017) You might be amused and lured by the quirky title, but Granny of the Dead has much more going for it. It might not reach the lofty commercial heights of Edgar Wright's classic, but neither does it simply ape or riff on it.‐ Starburst

8/10 90% Hounds of Love (2017) It's undeniably uncomfortable viewing in places, but there are few thrillers that pack as much of a punch or are as relentlessly traumatic as Hounds of Love.‐ Starburst

6/10 30% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) While the flashy visuals, fast cutting and idiosyncratic lads banter will appeal to some, the result is less impressive.‐ Starburst

8/10 No Score Yet 2 Jennifer (2016) Ultimately, it's a more enjoyable ride than the first, with a payoff that packs quite a wallop.‐ Starburst

9/10 100% Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy (2010) For a four-hour film, it sure does fly by, and you certainly won't be snoozing during it.‐ Starburst

8/10 100% Everlasting (2016) Everlasting is a remarkable film that's perhaps a little too understated and low budget to be on the mainstream's radar, but for those able to check it out will be greatly rewarded.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet Wolf Mother (2016) Wolf Mother is a slickly-made, powerful film about regret, secrets, and redemption. ‐ Starburst

9/10 100% This Giant Paper-Mache Boulder Is Actually Really Heavy (2018) There are so many fantastic moments it's hard to single some out.‐ Starburst

8/10 No Score Yet Preternatural (2015) What could have been too clever for its own good becomes a totally unpretentious and wild ride.‐ Starburst

6/10 61% Legend (2015) All in all, it's not quite a misfire, but could have been so much more. Hardy, however, will come out of it higher than ever as he cements himself as a true acting powerhouse.‐ Starburst

9/10 60% Suburban Gothic (2015) It won't be to everyone's taste, but for those who like it offbeat, it's well worth a look.‐ Starburst

9/10 85% Santa Sangre (1989) While it's not especially easy viewing, and unquestionably not for all tastes, Santa Sangre is exhilarating, challenging, enigmatic and distressing, but entirely rewarding and entertaining.‐ Starburst
