- NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS – missed the end L
- THE DEVILS ADVOCATE

NO ONE LIVES – I had no idea about this film it just kinda cropped up. It does have a cool, slightly alternative story, it was just executed poorly, it kinda plays like the early part of Devil’s Rejects in reverse with a few Saw traps.
KYNODONTAS/DOGTOOTH – This movie instantly gets a 10/10 from me. It’s films like that I live for! Strange situations, obscure dialogue, totally unique and a fresh breath of cinema air.
THE BOUNTY – I’m trying to work out a “five best moments” post for my main cinema man Sir Anthony Hopkins! So I’m catching up on a few films I missed along the way. For a remake this was pretty good.
PUMPING IRON – I don’t know if anyone is aware on here but I started weight lifting as part of my “new me” programme about 5 weeks ago, my new weights were ordered while watching this! Although I have to admit that I wasn’t quite expecting so much cumming lol
PUMPING IRON II – luckily there is a lady version too! I was a bit upset with the god girl, how sad can one person be but I was routing for the Auzzie lass to be honest, she’s the only one who looked like she had any balls to become anything new…
RETURN OF SABATA – I’ve watched this so many times but always miss bits I will rewatch again and pay more attention but not as good as Sabata..
HOWLING 2 – YOUR SISTER IS A WEREWOLF – WTF is this all about! I loved howling and have been watching all the sequels (in no order, just as I find them) and despite the Christopher Lee scenes it’s pretty pants, lots of snarling and hair though.. pretty 80’s.
THE CREEPING FLESH – Old school favourite movie!!! I adored this as a kid, despite the monster freaking me out A LOT! But it still is amazing to watch Cushing and Lee had such a rapport.
WORLD WAR Z – I gave in to see how they butchered the book and it looks like it’s going to be World War Z part 2.. it’s an ok movie, a little far fetched but hey it’s sci fi.. I don’t think it’s going to down in cinema history for anything spectacular.
HATCHET II – talking about Part 2.. I’m catching up with the Hatchet Triligoy, I really loved the first movie, it was great seeing a kid from the 80’s keeping the old horror movie themes alive and creating such a great new horror character to love. Now this movie is pretty much a rehash of the first movie with some of the original cast, it’s kinda in the similar vein as how Evil Dead 2 was kinda a reinvention of Evil Dead.
THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY – A bit of black and white with my Sunday roast! Amusing real life story of a German POW who had many great escape attempts.
NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS – missed the end L The DVD I got just stopped playing part way though I’m gonna give it another go but I am so frekked peeved that this isn’t playing!!! It had all the classic styles and themes that a good retro Italian horror needs!! GRRR
THE DEVILS ADVOCATE – I avoided this movie for so long, Keanu has never interested me as an actor and Pacino is a bit samey all the time. It was an okay movie but a bit let down for us occultist.. but… saying that it was like listeing.. to Entombed – Morning Star Album – http://lyrics.rockmagic.net/lyrics/entombed/morning_star_2002.html#s09
THE DEVILS DOUBLE – only watched half – This was starting to look promising when I dropped off… I shall continue it another day.
