A US expat nightclub owner has his neutrality threatened in wartime Morocco when confronted by his ex-lover. Splendid wartime romance/film noir/political allegory balancing cynicism, comedy and menace in equal measure. Loads of fun.
An alcoholic LA detective with a reputation for violence comes under scrutiny from internal affairs. Generally solid double-cross-tastic bad cop-worse cop rough-and tumble that teeters on the brink of melodrama, but just about holds it together.
A kill-happy cop returns from the dead to get revenge on the NYPD. Patchy late entry in the slasher cycle, this has some of the quirkiness of writer/producer Larry Cohen’s best work, but is let down in places by flat performances and unimaginative direction.
A family discover a mysterious burial ground with hidden powers of reanimation. A well adapted movie which ably captures the horrific nastiness from the novel and plays nothing for laughs. Grim enough for a classic ‘bleak-end’ and worth your time!
A programmer ends up trapped inside an arcade game world. Visually impressive, with some pioneering CGI, the film struggles everywhere else with a limp story and a script written in techno babble.
Painfully slow and contrived thriller about a family surviving an alien invasion. The precious few effective scenes are overwhelmed by a plot and script riddled with holes and some awful acting.
A clever late 70s psychological thriller about a man convinced he can cause deaths and disasters.
A clever late 70s psychological thriller about a man convinced he can cause deaths and disasters. With a chilling central performance from Richard Burton that adds real weight to the film, this remains a great film with some startling visual effects for the time.
