My name is Bruce (2007).Bruce Campbell stars and directs this movie, playing an over exaggerated version of himself who is kidnapped to fight an ancient evil!! Laughs, scares and rolling heads aplenty, and lots of cameos from people who were in the Evil dead movies. The theme song is catchy as hell too!
Satans little helper (2004).A sometimes hilarious throwback to the slasher films of yore (that's the late 70's/early 80's for all of you who don't know) this movie features some great kills, a great villain and the ending is beyond creepy!! One for a Saturday night in with a lot of alcohol!
Home sick (2007).Made with a very small budget, although you certainly wouldn't know from the acting and FX, a man turns up to a party carrying a suitcase, and asks each of the party goers to name someone they hate, before he kills each one of those people named. Buckets of blood, and the ever Awesome Bill Mosely make this one to watch again and again.
Feast (2005).I know this movie is hated by a lot of people, but I thought it was a good old monster movie with lashings of gore, a high body count and it had the energy of something made back in the 70's. A bar is attacked by monsters. That's pretty much the plot in a nutshell. It really has everything you want from a movie. Beautiful women, monsters, gore, a cameo by Jason Mewes, and buckets of maggot ridden vomit!!!
Colin (2008).Shot on a budget of £35.00, Colin tells the story of Colin (who didn't see that coming) who is attacked and bitten by a zombie. We follow him as he slowly turns into one of the undead. Incredibly emotional and powerful, the whole movie rises above its tiny budget and creates a new kind of Zombie movie. This movie shows how far you can go with imagination, talent and will and very little money!
Let the right one in (2008).Ignore the polished turd that was 2010's remake, the original is much more character driven, emotional and just about better in every way! A young loner meets up with a strange young girl, and as their friendship blossoms, he learns something that will change his life forever. Creepy in every sense of the word, but beautifully shot. One of the greatest vampire movies in existence.
The house of the Devil (2009).Ti West's third feature cements his slow build technique he continued with The innkeepers. The movie comes across as though it was made in the 80's. It is incredibly suspenseful, and the ending has to be seen to be believed. Gritty, brutal and beautiful, all at the same time. If you have yet to check this out, what are you waiting for?
Until next time...
