Bad Pennies – A Book Review

BADP

I don’t get the chance to review many books, I get offered quite a few but with me already having several+ books on my current to read list it’s hard to make time. It may sound old fashioned in some ways but I’m also not keen on reading a novel on an iPad or Kindle, I like to have a real physical copy to read. I was quite pleased when John F Leonard messaged me and asked if I’d like a signed copy of his book to read. I was just finishing my current read so thought why not……….

Leatherface (2017) Review

leatherfaceposter

Leatherface and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre rightfully take their place among the slasher movies that started the genre. These films are also probably right up there with the most famous horror films of all time. The last film before this one was pretty damn good, so I had no hesitation in watching this one as well. Obviously by the name you can guess it tells the origin story of Leatherface, how did he become the beast that we all love chainsawing people in the face.

47 Meters Down (2017) Review

47-meters-down-new-international-poster

A while ago I reviewed The Shallows (to read my review click HERE) it really makes you think about the massive lack of Shark films outside of the usual SyFy rubbish we get. The Shallows was a really good film for me, tense and well acted with a massive shark. So now we see another bikini clad woman or in this case women trapped somewhere by sharks, question is can it match The Shallows?

IT (2017) Review

I was worried recently that I’d miss this film at the cinema due to a knee operation but luckily I was able to stumble my way into the cinema and get it watched. You can read my review of the original by clicking HERE! Remakes and reboots are usually disliked by horror fans mainly because they’re miles below the original or they’re a pointless Hollywood remake of an Asian horror because people are too lazy to read subtitles.

My Life In Horror 1988 – Beetlejuice

jojj_beetlejuice_movie_poster

Once again the good people of Twitter voted to pick the films from 1988 that I should watch and review. The winners were Beetlejuice and Pumpkinhead both pretty different but both reasonably good if I remember rightly about Pumpkinhead anyway. I’ll try not to be bias when doing this review/look back but I should inform you that I am wearing a Beetlejuice t-shirt as I write this up.

The Legend of Zelda(NES)

I’ve been playing this game for a while now and I thought why not start dropping the odd retro game review onto the blog. I recently bought a retro console off Facebook it’s loaded with 1000’s of games as in around 55,000 spanning over all sorts of consoles. This is a cheaper and easier way to play these old games as recently the market for retro games and consoles has soared higher and higher. So here are my thoughts on Legend of Zelda.

My Life in Horror 1987 – Hellraiser

hellraiser

I’m back! It’s been a while since I posted a review but I won’t bore you with the details of why. After a vote on Twitter some time ago Hellraiser was picked as one of the films for me to review from 1987, I was so glad this won as it’s one of my personal favourites of any genre. I’ll keep the run down brief as I’m sure virtually all of you have seen this one………

My Life in Horror 1987 – Near Dark

neardark_quad-1

After The Fly and Little Shop of Horrors won the 1986 vote on Twitter I once again took to the polls to find two films from 1987 to watch and review. This is possibly my favourite year so far with Hellraiser winning and also Near Dark. Now Near Dark I had never seen before, I’m not sure why it was just a film that passed me by. After the death of Bill Paxton I was reminded of this film and all I knew was it was a vampire movie and he was very good in it. So when this came out as a winner I was very happy to get it watched.
