REVIEW:

Director: William Asher
Starring: Jimmy McNichol, Susan Tyrell, Julia Duffy and Bo Svenson

‘Psycho for Laymen’.

This is probably the best way to sum up Night Warning, although it isn’t necessarily as bad as it sounds.
It examines a perverse relationship between mother and son, oozing slowly into the very uncomfortable … Continue reading

Film Review: Soft for Digging (2011)

Soft-for-Digging-2001-movie-1

SYNOPSIS:

A man wanders into the woods in search of his cat and witnesses a murder

REVIEW:

Soft For Digging is an example of an extremely good idea that proves to be difficult to end satisfactorily. The premise is basic but effective, the simplicity is to be admired, but unfortunately J.T. Petty who wrote, edited, produced and directed the piece didn’t quite come up with a final act that matched everything that had … Continue reading

Mysterious-Skin-2004-Movie-5

SYNOPSIS:

The-Worlds-End-2013-Movie-Imagebanner

SYNOPSIS:

Five friends who reunite in an attempt to top their epic pub crawl from 20 years earlier unwittingly become humankind’s only hope for survival.
