Stranger in Our House
5 years ago via Flixster

SUMMER OF FEAR (1978) aka :Stranger In Our House. Directed by Wes CravenAaah....this brings back memories!A fun, predictable, 'made-for-television' style film (above-average for TV, below-average for cinema).Linda saves the day when her recently-orphaned cousin(actually, a witchy imposter) comes to live with her family in rural smalltown, USA.Everyone falls in love with the beautiful creature who has seen so much tragedy in her short life. Everyone, that is, except Linda,who feels that there is something ?not quite right? about her cousin.Nobody else seems to recognise her'subtle' sinister aura & it is not long before witchy, evil things start to happen. I particularly enjoyed the bewitchment of Linda that caused her to break out in a pustular facial rash & miss her school prom!! Of course, cousin-dear then took her place as Linda's beau's date.Horror?.......Yes, but so engagingly innocent!!!Linda Blair is SO young .... there is a certain tragic pathos one feels when looking at her bright, button eyes shining with youthful optimism. She still believes that great things are in store for her after her trailblazing debut in The Exorcist.Alas, the soul-destroying days of Chained Heat were only 5 years away. 3 & a half out of 5 stars.

Carry on Doctor

All of the Carry On films get 4 or 5 stars from me.
They have been a much-loved part of my life ever since I can remember.

The Jungle Book

A timeless classic.
I still adore this film & often find myself singing lines from "The Bare Necessities" at the top of my lungs whenever I am in a particularly good mood!
The characters, storyline, animation & the pure joie de vivre that this film exudes put it in a class above most other animated fare.
*****5 out of 5 stars*****

Killer Klowns from Outer Space
6 years ago via Flixster

Directed by Stephen Chiodo.

A whimsical tribute to those B-grade creature features of the 1950s.
Despite the potential here for something truly dreadful, this is actually a rather amusing & surprisingly well-executed production. OK..so it is low-budget, tacky & more than a little on the kitsch side, but it sustains itself well, knows when 'enough is enough' & leaves the viewer still chuckling without once having had to glance at the clock.
***3 & a half out of 5 stars***
