A Quiet Place (2018) Review

a-quiet-place-poster (1)

So now the World Cup has ended in heartbreak it’s time to focus back on the horror movies. It’s been a while since my last review mainly because it’s so incredibly time consuming watching three and a half football matches a day. Now however I’m back and after managing to catch a showing of A Quiet Place at the cinema in it’s dying weeks, I thought it’s a good place to start to get back into the swing of things!

Chopping Mall (1986) Review (Also Known as Killbots)

58fc129f5b5c4_276887b

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?

Nails (2017) Review

I’m a big fan of Ross Noble’s free wheeling, for those unaware it’s a show on UK channel Dave where stand up comedian Ross Noble follows orders off Twitter. He basically riding around the UK meeting up with people who ask him to do stuff on his Twitter account, it’s amazing fun! I was gutted when I found out there wouldn’t be any more for the foreseeable future. I noticed that Ross Noble had said he was working on acting in another horror movie having already appeared in the darkly funny killer clown film Stitches. So when I saw this on Netflix I had to give it a watch.

Mom & Dad (2017) Review

Years and years ago, probably longer than I care to admit Saturday night would have been filled with alcoholic fun. Now however it’s more likely to see me and Mrs AcidBurnsHorrorShow searching Netflix and other online streaming services for something to kick back and watch. After looking through we settled on Mom & Dad, I mean it’s got Nicolas Cage in and lets face it that means it’s either going to be awesome or horrific. The premise of parents going mental and wanting to kill their kids for no apparent reason seemed like a good enough line to hook me in.

The Ritual(2017) Review

the-ritual-2017

I saw the trailer for The Ritual last year and I’ve wanted to watch it ever since. I tried to go to the cinema but it had awkward times like 10pm on a week day, that might not sound too bad but when I have to get up at 5am for work the following day it was never going to happen. This film arrived on Netflix last Friday but just like the UK fuck it’s own football fans by banning 3 o’clock kick offs being shown on TV, Netflix released this on every Netflix apart from the UK, typical. Still I managed to get a copy and sat down one night to see if it lived up to the high praise it’s been getting.

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.

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.

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.
