As soon as I saw the name and year of this film I had to watch it, it’s taken me a while to get round to watching it. I was browsing through Amazon Prime which I had to sign up to so I could watch the Final Destination films, when I saw this. I’d heard good things in the past and how could something with topless 80’s women and killer robots not be great fun?

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

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.

My Life In Horror 1986 – The Fly

Along with Little Shop of Horror (read review by clicking HERE!) The Fly was voted with it as the second film from 1986 that I should watch and review. I’ve always loved The Fly movie, I’ve watched it loads of times from when I was a kid wanting to see all the gore to closer to the present day where I saw it as more than just a film with some gory scenes. I guess the question as with all movies from the 80’s is, do they stand the test of time?

My Life in Horror 1984 – Firestarter

firestarter

My quest continues to watch two horror films from every year I’ve been on the planet, the first winner of a Twitter poll was A Nightmare on Elm Street. The second winner I was surprised to see was Stephen King’s Firestarter turned into a film. I’d hadn’t really heard much of this and wasn’t expecting too much when I watched it, did it exceed my expectations? Continue reading to find out!

The Blob (1988) Review

the-blob-movie-poster

When deciding what to watch one night I had this film in my head, I had watched it as a kid and as such couldn’t remember any of it at all other than it’s got a big blob in it. I had a quick look on IMDB and saw that it starred Kevin Dillon who I like from Entourage and Shawnee Smith who’s done a few things that I’ve enjoyed. So it was a good chance to see them at the start of their career.

“This film is worth watching obviously it’s not as scary as I remember it being when I was in my early teens but I guess that’s to be expected!”
