The Toll (2020)
Just watched this on Shudder, the trailer makes it look more tense that what it should be, Blair witch meets Wrong Turn meets Route 666. It was entertaining with one or two blink and miss moments. The background story unfolds half a hour into the film then becomes more cat and mouse psychological game.
East Is East (1999)
I'm your father, you are my son...
Traditional take on the lives of a pure Pakistan father in Britain trying to keep up the traditions of his family, having a business, wife and arranging marriages for his children.
It does have a serious note at the start with a arranged marriage that the groom runs away from and the father ostracising the son, and keeping the traditions of balance by having his sons get the circumcision and arranging two more sons to get married who end up being rebellious. Om Puri plays great as George Khan keeping the family traditions for his English wife and children. As it is a drama this does have a lot of comedy and side splitting laughter
The Spiritualist (2018)
We Brits do it again
I came across this film on Youtube and seemed to have a decent story to it, after twenty minutes I kept saying it will get better...it never did. It seems to pick up and then go downhill a lot, the acting is not the greatest, some bits go slow and others parts go on too long, the twist at the end was not well executed properly, Having Julie Wallace and Ian Reddington star in it that caught my attention, there acting talents are wasted in this.
I Drink Your Blood (1970)
Not Great Not Terrible
No one will get a Oscar or even a Razzie award for their acting in this as it one of those movies that's so bad it's good, Satanic Hippies arrive in a town, victimise a few people and a pre-teen gets upset and seeks revenge with a corpse of a rabid dog, what can go wrong? As daft as this movie sound it is entertaining just don'e expect it to be a big budget movie.
Plane Dead (2007)
Decent Zombie flick
I came across this did for a £1.00 at the old woolworths store, full uncut version.
I thought it be another low budget attempt at a zombie film...i was wrong.
Eric Avari (The Mummy) plays somewhat of a mad scientist transferring a dead female colleague in a chriogenic freezer with a armed guard on a 747 plane from Los Angeles to Paris, after a bit of turbulence the freezer breaks down and she is awake and turns into a zombie and starts to infect all on board.
This film does have its small comedy bits but its a 100 per cent gore fest for those who enjoys a good Zombie movie.
Dead Ringers (1988)
a masterpiece from Cronenberg
Based on the book "Twins" by Bari Wood and Jack Geasland, Jeremy Irons plays twins Gynecologists Elliot and Beverly Mantle, the film starts of with the Mantle twins in their youth, Then college/university graduating, then having their own clinic Mantle Inc, Elliot is more charismatic, suave and confident, Beverly is more shy and quiet. one day movie actress Claire Niveau (Genevieve Bujold) turns up at their clinic for treatment, Elliot seduces Claire then tells Beverly he should try her as they both are Identical. Beverly falls for her then develops a drug habit which could ruin everything they have worked for.
This movie is more Drama than David Cronenberg's earlier movies in the horror genre, the film does start of slow but once you settle into it, its very much enjoyable, Jeremy Irons is amazing in this film under the guidance of a brilliant director.
A Return to Salem's Lot (1987)
cashing in on a name
Michael Moriarty stars as a man returning to Jerusalem,s (Salem's) lot with his son after inheriting a house from his aunt with the intentions of rekindling their father/son relationship, but its not long before they realise something is not right. I saw this and the original 1979 on VHS 20 years ago, this film had me in stitches with the bad acting and what looked like bad tomato sauce fake blood, did the film makers decided to make a vampire movie and cash in on a sequel to Salem's Lot and ruin it.
if you want a movie to watch if you are bored try this, you might just end up falling asleep to it.
