“It ate him… bit off his head… like a gingerbread man!” – Revisiting From Beyond (1986)

(Warning! there will be spoilers) So it’s the New Year finally and I thought it was high time I cracked on with my first piece of writing for 2014. As you can tell from the title I’ve decided to do a new Revisiting piece, mainly as I enjoy writing them so much.  Now get yourself … Continue reading

The Bed-Sitting Room (1969)

This piece was originally written as part of a ‘forgotten films’ column for another website. It was never published, so I’ve reformatted it for this blog and added a little bit of additional content.

Carry On Campaigning….For Classic Horror!!

She’s enthusiastically written a great piece about the classically camp, Blood For Dracula (a personal favorite of mine). Keep your eyes peeled for her piece … Continue reading

Cranking the Filmbar up to 70!

On what should have been a sunny and hot day in the beginning of June (it was in fact a day filled with torrential rain) I found myself heading towards the London based Roxy Bar and Screen. I was braving hell and high water to begin my interview with the lovely gents who form Filmbar70. … Continue reading

New Year, Old Films

After what feels like an age since the last blog post (seems to be well over a month as I look back) I have finally found my typing fingers again, after a rocky start to the New Year. But enough of that, this blog is about films (least it was last time I logged on … Continue reading
