The-Doctor-and-the-Devils-1985-movie-Freddie-Francis-(4)

SYNOPSIS: Grave robbers supply a doctor with bodies to test on. REVIEW: Considering that it was directed by Freddie Francis, certainly one of the greatest minds of my lifetime, I can’t believe I’ve missed this movie until now! Whenever you hate (or love) a film, writing a review for it is always easy. You can blather on incessantly about how great (or awful) it is and all the many reasons why. Interestingly, this film really isn’t … Continue reading

REVIEW: Coming off the highly successful debut X-men release (I actually paid to see it in the theatres 3X), arrives this worthy and rather visually exiting follow up X2.

Film Review: Lifeforce (1985)

Lifeforce-1985-movie-2

SYNOPSIS: A race of space vampires arrive in London and infect the populous. REVIEW: Director – Tobe Hooper Starring – Steve Railsback, Mathilda May, Peter Firth If you’ve never seen this movie it’s the one with the nude space vampires.

Seems weird in a movie review that in the first paragraph … Continue reading
