Poster for Mandy

Mandy

10

A truly singular cinematic experience which is better described than dissected. It’s trippy, colourful, disturbing, gory, referential and hilarious… but also weirdly poignant and transcendent.

Night of the Demon

Despite its slightly silly-looking demon, Night of the Demon is an effective and highly entertaining old-fashioned bone-chiller.

A solidly respectable one with several outstanding moments of pure cinema.

Poster for A Star Is Born

A Star Is Born

9

Although slightly overlong, it’s a film whose emotional imprint will stay with you for a long time after the end credits have rolled.

There’s plenty of enjoyment to be gleaned from this zippy, unpretentious 1980s horror-comedy.

Could have been great had the filmmakers and studio not fumbled the ball on a few occasions.

A fine, intelligent chiller which provides a strong case for George Romero being remembered for more than just shuffling, intestine-munching corpses.

Revenge

An absolute must for those who think they can stomach it.

Poster for Best Worst Movie

Best Worst Movie

7

All in all, it’s a satisfying real-life tale on how a bad movie cloud can, in time, generate its own silver lining.

Poster for Troll 2

Troll 2

While it’s far worse than the original Troll, it’s immeasurably more enjoyable and certainly moves along at a lively pace.

A pretty bad movie. It’s not so-bad-it’s-good either; it’s just kind of meh bad, albeit just about tolerable to sit through thanks to its game cast.

A lively enough piece of delirious Italian nastiness.

Poster for City Hunter

City Hunter

7

This is a decent enough presentation of what is arguably Jackie Chan’s strangest film.

Poster for Salvador

Salvador

8

While it occasionally rambles, Salvador is a truly harrowing and all-too-realistic depiction of war with a side order of moral redemption.

The Predator

Quite frankly, the most disappointing film which I’ve seen so far this year.

Poster for The Producers

The Producers

Even the otherwise grating Franz Liebkind character has his moment in the spotlight. It’s a pity that getting to this part of the film is a bit of a slog.

While Stanton’s the star here, the supporting cast also contribute their share of memorable moments to the film.

Poster for The Girl in the Yellow Pajamas

The Girl in the Yellow Pajamas

This Italian genre oddity won’t appeal to everyone. However, it’s undeniable that we get yet another superb-looking print from Arrow...

Heathers

A stone cold 1980s classic.

Poster for The Odessa File

The Odessa File

On the sluggish side but still worth seeing mainly for the story, Voight’s performance and some tense moments of action.

Poster for Cold War

Cold War

10

It’s a truly emotive and passionate work - not in the sense of being manipulative but in the sense of a pure poetry and artistry which has gone into every single moment of screen time.

Poster for Death Line

Death Line

7

May not be a perfect horror film but it is certainly a cut above average. It’s gruesome, atmospheric and intelligent all at once.

Solidly recommended to both Fritz Lang and film noir fans.

BlacKkKlansman

It tells a truly eye-opening and socially important tale in a manner which entertains and disturbs in equal measure.
