Despite being quite a classy Icelandic movie, if you've seen any Scandinavian detective series in recent years (The Killing etc.) then this is nothing new. Confusing in places and with spooky touches but sadly this treads a tired path already.
A very good low budget Australian horror movie that plays very successfully on our fear of the unknown. The acting misses a beat occasionally and sometimes it is so dark it is quite hard to see what's going on, but that just adds to the atmosphere. Recommended.
Influential B-movie notable for being Lon Chaney's last major horror film (where he has a substantive role). It's a madcap exploitation horror with dark comedy. Tobe Hooper must have been influenced by this and of course Texas Chainsaw Massacre followed. Another worthy note is an insane appearance by a young Sid Haig latterly of Rob Zombie's Devil's Rejects trilogy. It's worth one watch if you are a horror afficionado.
A contender for the most overrated horror movie of recent times. The first niggle is the 'social commentary'. It is so excruciatingly badly written, it is beyond cheese. Then we have the plot itself. It is weird and disturbing, but it isn't particularly scary. You aren't going to be fearful of going to bed at night. Again the cheesy element comes into play in the last third. It's all a bit ludicrous and not in a convincing way. Cabin In The Woods this isn't. Don't get me wrong, this is an entertaining film but don't fall for the hype or have too high an expectation.
A forgotten gem, The Bat Whispers is an innovative early talkie. With some breath taking camera work and a dazling script - this movie has scares, mystery, humour and adventure. Terrific stuff.
