An underrated and sadly seldom seen movie from Hammer Studios. After the mother of a teenage girl dies in what is seen as a suicide at her home, Candy is determined to prove that the stepfather Decker killed her and thus begins a dangerous game of cat and mouse between the two.

From the opening scene of this fantastic movie, the viewer knows how the killer does his work...but then watches to see if his teenage stepdaughter can find out. Blaming someone for murder is one thing, but finding solid proof is something else entirely. The suspense is cranked up throughout the movie as we know Decker wants to kill Candy off but when will he get his chance to do the terrible deed. Peter Van Eck is truly excellent as the cold-blooded stepfather Decker with Mandy Miller also performing admirably as the likable, cute and effective Candy. The movie builds to an extremely tense scenario capped off by not one but two highly satisfying resolutions. This is a real treat for Hammer fans and another feather in their cap that they could do something different and well apart from just classic horror.

One of the early movies that Michael Winner directed and probably his best. A motley group of soldiers have their initiative tested in a scavenger hunt set by an army psychologist. They are instructed to obtain six symbols of the British way of life. The reward for the winner is to be fast-tracked for promotion and a ten-day, all-expenses-paid trip around the world for two.

This is a cracking comedy from start to finish with some brilliant scenes involving a huge cast of British favourites. Everyone performs well, and they look like they had a whale of a time making this movie. The script has some humorous dialog and some slapstick. Top of the bill is the wonderful Terry Thomas along with Lionel Jeffries as a kilted Scotsman who steals every scene he's in, Bernard Cribbins, Denholm Elliott and Wilfred Hyde-White. The funniest character for myself was Annabelle Nash played by Gabriella Licudi who helps an American soldier in his quest. Her driving skills are atrocious and it's a laugh seeing the chaos she creates whilst on the roads. To anyone who enjoys fun-filled, brisk British comedies, this is worth checking out.

A bitter airline pilot fakes his own death and gets his wife to collect the money. They escape to Malaga in Spain after committing a perfect crime. But, of course, there's always the dogged investigator to make things difficult.

A fair to middling thriller but one that really needed a Hitchcock or at least a director who knew how to mould the somewhat far-fetched material into something more plausible than this. The first 15 to 20 minutes seemed a good set-up for a premise that sounds exciting and suspenseful. Then suddenly Laurence Harvey is walking around with dyed blonde hair and a terrible Aussie accent and the film goes downhill from there before picking up again near the climax. The story tends to sag in the middle where nothing really happens. There should have been more suspense between the scheming couple and the insurance investigator. Laurence Harvey tends to overact here and Lee Remick is beautiful and does OK with the material. It's not a bad movie but it could've been better.

Spaceship (2016)
A girl fakes her own alien abduction and disappears, leaving her father to search for her in a strange teenage world of unicorns and black holes.

I'm not really sure what I watched here but it was absolutely awful. I'm taking it's meant to be an insight into the world of teen culture but I just found it a confusing mish-mash of psychedelic claptrap by the director. Maybe Alex Taylor wanted his audience to embrace the strange and weirdness that's taking place. That's all fine if it leads to something good for the viewer but it doesn't. There's certainly not much of a plot in the movie. The cast are forced to speak terrible dialogue. They're basically just talking gibberish half the time. Teenagers though might be able to empathise with the characters? So in the end, this is one of the worst movies I've ever had the misfortune to watch. A right abomination!

Double Bunk (1961)
Ian Carmichael and Janette Scott are newlyweds who fed up with the cost of rent, purchase a houseboat. The houseboat is the typical junk sold to gullible newlyweds and the pair immediately run afoul of the man with the biggest yacht. With the help of his pal Sid James, and without the consent of his wife, Carmichael repairs the boat's engine and along with Liz Frazer sets off for a honeymoon cruise on the river which goes wrong when they end up in France with no fuel for the trip back home.

This is a fun movie which gets better as it goes along. There is some slapstick and since Liz Frazer plays a stripper, a little titillation but not much. Sid James plays a character we've seen him play so many times, the wise cracking friend not always up to complete good. Ian Carmichael is his usual calamity self - the nice guy who ends up suffering when one accident after another befalls him, more often than not down to something that his character has done. This movie is basically one of those 60's comedies which is driven by the cast delivering the sort of characters and humour which they were known for. I enjoyed it and if you like this sort of comedy you'll be entertained too.

Nomads (1986)
A French anthropologist moves to Los Angeles and is followed by the evil spirits of an extinct tribe he once uncovered. Just before he dies in hospital, he transfers his memories to the mind of a female doctor and through her the viewer sees what happened to him.

This is an eerie as well as supernatural chiller about a society of malevolent ghosts set in Los Angeles and dealing with a mysterious anthropologist well performed by Pierce Brosnan (in his 1st leading movie role) and the woman doctor finely acted by Lesley-Anne Down. The movie packs gruesome images, grisly killings as well as providing plenty of suspense, continuous flashbacks and nightmares, chills and plot twists. Don't come into the movie expecting answers as to who these spiritual Nomads are as you won't get it here. It's up to your own interpretation as to what is going on. The final scene is quite surprising. All in all, this may not appeal to everybody but if you're after what some have called 'a thinking man's horror' you might take something out of it.

When a little girl is knocked down by a truck on the road, the race is on to find people that have the same rare blood type as her. The way you see the accident taking place the girl should have been killed instantly so it's quite surprising that she's still alive. Possible donors include a convicted criminal awaiting his execution, a footballer and a scientist on the run from the police. Only the scientist who is selling secrets storyline is vaguely interesting if I'm being honest. It's a fairly routine thriller in which some car chases are added to liven things up but in the end it's all fairly predictable. Glynn Houston does his best with the script as the detective charged with finding the 3 donors. In the end, the movie passes the time but it's not memorable or special.

Jazz Boat (1960)
Anthony Newley is Bert, a young electrician who gets mixed up with a gang of hoodlums who steal some jewellery from a shop. The mix of comedy, drama and music doesn't gel well together and whoever gave useless comedian Bernie Winters a role in this movie made a big mistake. His presence and tiring comedy routine gets irritating quite quickly. The second half of the movie is mostly a chase as Bert and his friend The Jinx are on the run from the hoodlums and along with a police inspector find themselves on the Jazz Boat. There are some musical numbers belted out from some unknown French crooner and Newley himself. The one highlight from this movie is the gorgeous Anne Aubrey who sizzles on screen. It's a fairly good timepiece of the era as 3 years later this whole jazz scene would be swept aside by the beat groups and a certain 4 piece band from Liverpool!

Smokescreen (1964)
A blazing car crashes over a cliff. No body is found. It belonged to a co-owner of a business. Both owners had recently taken out large insurance policies. The insurance company is naturally suspicious and send an agent to investigate.

This is a great little British thriller with a subtle comic flavour to allow it to stand out from the rest. Although it has the same low budget, ensemble cast feel as many other films from Butcher's Film Studios, it's the wry understated humour which centres around the central character's miserliness which makes it special. The storyline is rather familiar, but the Brighton locations and occasional shots of the wonderful Seven Sisters cliffs give it an edge. The dependable Peter Vaughan is excellent as the insurance agent who succeeds in solving the crime where the police have failed. Overall this movie is a well-made, well-written, well-acted low budget movie which deserves to be seen.

In a British school, the conservative and emotionless Latin teacher Andrew Crocker-Harris has a heart problem and is forced to retire. His unfaithful wife Millie is having a love affair with his colleague, the science teacher Frank Hunter, and he is hated and despised by the students, fellows and the direction of the school. His pupil Taplow is studying with him the tragic Greek poem The Agamemnon, expecting to be promoted at school. On his last days at school, Crocker-Harris is informed by the headmaster that the board refused to pay his pension plan for earlier retirement and he realises that he is a failure as a teacher and a man.

This is a brilliant movie based on a Terence Rattigan play. Michael Redgrave is simply superb as the downtrodden schoolmaster Crocker-Harris and the depth of his portrayal is astounding. His acting skills makes it easy to empathise with the character's status as a man beaten down so much by his failures in life that the only thing he has left is his academic brilliance and just maybe a sliver of self dignity that he's trying so hard to hang onto. I dare you not to cheer or shed a tear when he finally speaks at his final farewell speech to the students. The ending of this movie is all about acting. You don't have to yell and scream and show a lot of emotion to get a point across on film. You just have to do what this guy does....be humble...and honest. Absolutely incredible. It's worth watching this movie just for that speech alone. Highly recommended.

A fairly standard revenge actioner for Chuck Norris after his partner in the police force is murdered and he resigns in order to pursue the killers. The movie has plenty of action, tension, suspense and cheesy sub-plot to boot with wild stunts. You can guess straight away who the mole is in the police department that's supplying information to the big bad villain played by Christopher Lee. There's a couple of martial art fights as Norris cleans up the Chinese fighters by means of punches and kicks. It's violent, frenetic and hectic. I found it funny in the final fight between Norris and a big Chinese bloke that the sound effects for Han Solo's blaster is used when Norris connects with his 3 kicks!! Chuck Norris' acting skills here won't win any awards but he's not too bad. If you like your martial arts flicks and are not too worried about plot, then I would recommend this one to you. It may not be intellectually brilliant but it is kick ass entertaining!

Two escaped convicts hail down a motorist Jeff who willingly gives them a lift. Unbeknownst to them he knows who they are and has a proposition to make to them. In return for 1,000 pounds he wants them to kill his wife.

This is a gripping and brutal movie, especially in it's depiction of women. One example is the motorist's au-pair who is beaten and then murdered by one of the criminals. The movie largely takes place in the cramped confines of a country home. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the story is that the criminals themselves are far less deranged and dangerous than Jeff, who approaches his scheme with the cool, detached air of a psychopath. The best performance comes from Marc Lawrence who plays a sleazy, hardened convict who nevertheless reveals a streak of humanity. This little-known but effective British b-movie is worthy of being checked out.

A hard hitting, raw and honest look at how the British system is failing it's own people. Daniel Blake is a middle-aged carpenter who's taken a few recent knocks, one of which is suffering a heart-attack and deemed not able to return to work. It's a position no one would want to be in, forced to sacrifice your own health or lose everything you have worked so hard for.

The viewer gets to witness the hurdles that seem purposely put there to hinder payments. How are people such as Daniel Blake suppose to survive, or better still, have a good life they are suppose to be able to live. The movie gives an emotional look at the suffering and poor way of life some unfortunate people have to contend with in Great Britain. It's compelling, invoking and upsetting, showing the great lengths and risks people go through in order to maintain their self dignity. Well done to director Ken Loach for bringing something like this to our screen. Dave Johns is exceptional as Daniel Blake, emitting the boiling frustrations of the soul- destroying turn of events, right to the very end. Hayley Squires' Katie is short of brilliant too, displaying the tremendous pressure when faced with these kind of tribulations. The food bank scene with her is heartbreaking to watch. Overall, this movie is a powerful character piece that highlights the desperation of the good hearted, but poorer people in British society and how they are left as outcasts in society due to the state. Very highly recommended.

When a Mexican finds the Spear of Destiny amidst ruins, it sets off a chain of events that could lead to a Hell-fueled Armageddon on Earth. Enter John Constantine, freelance demon-hunter, and Los Angeles detective Angela Dodson, who are to play roles in the ongoing battle between heaven and hell.

This DC comic-book offering from Hollywood is this dark, depressing supernatural thriller which sees Keanu Reeves as a Neo-like hero, this time employed as an exorcist to prevent half-breed demons from entering our plane. The plotting and back story of the movie is impressive, with plenty of technobabble to delight the viewers, and the acting isn't half bad either. Reeves is very good as the laconic, chain-smoking star, giving a relaxed and mature performance. Rachel Weisz is also effective as the heroine, proving to be more than just a woman-in-peril, and her natural beauty shines through many of the odd sequences in which she partakes. The best thing by far in the movie are the special effects, especially those of the demons and the glimpses of Hell we get, which are simply fantastic. Very enjoyable.

Peter Sellers plays the corrupt head of a hospital that uses an array of schemes to bilk patients and insurance companies out of thousands of dollars. Rick Lenz plays a patient who becomes aware of the shenanigans going on and tries to bring Sellers and his staff down, but finds that they seem to have a trick up their proverbial sleeves at every turn.

Considered to be one of Sellers' worst movies, it isn't as bad as some say it is but is nowhere near some of his best work. The movie manages to have a few amusing moments, but comes off more like a gag reel than a story. The characters are exaggerated and unlikable. The viewer is supposed to side with Lenz and his predicament, but he so stupidly allows the doctors to take advantage of him at the beginning that it becomes hard to. The whole thing gets sillier by the second until by the end it’s completely inane. Apart from seeing Sellers do a reasonable American accent, the best out of the whole cast is Pat Morita who is genuinely amusing as a lab tech with an inferiority complex and at one point even speaks in a British accent. The awful and irritating country music soundtrack doesn't help things to be honest. For Sellers completists only.

An army barracks is taken over by a Hollywood production unit to film a sci-fi movie. The soldiers aren't complaining as there are plenty of pretty girls in revealing costumes for them to leer at and some of them even get a part in the movie. Everything seems to be going well until Divisional Commander turns up for one of his inspections.

This is a fairly unremarkable British movie but it does have the presence of 3 comedy greats together for the first and only time in Sid James, Tony Hancock and Peter Sellers. The trio try their best with a poor script but the movie doesn't have a lot of laughs in it. Director David Paltenghi seems to think that having chaotic scenes with people shouting at each other is supposed to be funny but it isn't. Those who look sharp enough may also catch a glimpse of Eric Sykes and Donald Pleasance in small cameo roles. All in all, you may want to catch this just to see Peter Sellers in one of his early roles but otherwise it's not really worth your time.

Christopher Lee is Count Regula who lives in a big castle and steals away young virgin girls. He tortures them & uses their blood for his "life elixir". His final victim manages to escape to inform the local authorities and he is executed for his crimes. He manages to come back from the dead 35 years later to exact his revenge on the descendants of his last victim and the judge/magistrate that sentenced him to death.

I don't know how I've managed to miss this movie over the years as it's a good one. Borrowing loosely from Poe's "The Pit and the Pendulum", director Reinl does a masterful job of pacing and fills the screen with surreal and spine tingling images. There is atmosphere a plenty throughout the movie and a sense of uneasiness. The set pieces and costumes are beautiful and are enhanced by the colour filming of the movie. Christopher Lee looks wonderfully terrible - a shambling, blueish corpse with a nail-hole scarred face, absolutely void of emotion as he plots his revenge. A fun and atmospheric horror movie that I really liked.

Once again it's another adaptation of the novel Jane Eyre written by Charlotte Bronte. This time Mia Wasikowska plays the main character, Jane Eyre, and Michael Fassbender plays her love interest, Edward Rochester. The big question, surrounding the movie, is, well, is this movie worth seeing since it has practically been done to death already. Overall, I would say yes.

For starters the movie's beautiful cinematography alone makes it worth seeing. In fact, that's the best thing it has to offer and that is no insult to the actors and actresses in the movie. There are plenty of beautiful shots showing the open countryside of England as Jane wanders around, trying to find her place. Even inside the mansions the cinematography is just breathtaking and it truly adds to the movie. The cinematography creates a unique atmosphere that at times makes it almost seem like a horror flick and it adds to the Gothic nature of the movie. Mai Wasikowska plays a strong Jane Eyre and is definitely worthy of playing the role. She holds her own against the likes of Judi Dench and other great actors. Michael Fassbender is also great in his role. Overall, if you're a fan of the novel you won't be disappointed. There is enough in the movie to keep the audience interested and that is what matters when all is said and done.

In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in 45 days or are transformed into beasts according to their choice and sent off into The Woods.

I've never heard of Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos before but if the rest of his movies are similar to this one, I'll be checking them out. I love these type of movies which come up with these unconventional stories. The Lobster is a strange movie and the people in this future are all apathetic and uncharismatic which makes the fact that they have to form couples even more ironic. They bond on basis of common character traits (such as a limp or short shortsightedness). The delicious offbeat humour and high-concept weirdness of The Lobster's first act don't conceal the movie's darker intentions. For such a low budget movie it has a tremendous cast in Colin Farrell, John C Reilly, Rachel Weisz and Léa Seydoux amongst others. The movie is slow paced but still hypnotising to look at, but I can imagine if these kind of movies are not your thing that you will find it quite boring. I found it an interesting movie as it has some very dry humour in it. Although I enjoyed it a lot, it doesn't mean that you will as it's a bit of an acquired taste. If you're up for it though, give it a whirl.

Martin Scorsese's "The Aviator" is a grand spectacle with a reverence for the nostalgic, set in simpler times. As a snapshot of Howard Hughes's life from 1927 to 1947, this movie is a portrait of a man of genius and unmatched innovation, and also a man debilitated by severe OCD and extreme depression. It has an amazing performance by Leonardo DiCaprio as Howard Hughes, and a mesmerising performance by Cate Blanchett, who seems to inhabit the role of Katherine Hepburn. DiCaprio truly captures Hughes's intensity, genius, and charm. His suffering also elicits great compassion. An unrecognisable Kate Beckinsale is also awesome as Ava Gardner. This movie is spectacular to view, and has a sense of history and tragedy. Definitely recommended to watch.

Gumshoe (1971)
Albert Finney is Eddie Ginley, a music-hall comedian/nightclub bingo caller who really wants to be fictional private detective Sam Spade. Ginley starts a new career and turns himself into a private eye with an advert in the newspaper, wearing a trench coat and talking in rapid-fire dialogue à la Humphrey Bogart. He takes on the job of investigating a dangerous case involving murder, weapons smuggling and drugs.

This movie pulls off that clever difficult trick of being gripping both as a spoof and as a thriller, thanks to the clever screenplay by Neville Smith and Stephen Frears’s taut direction. Albert Finney is really good as Ginley. The smart banter between Bogart and Lauren Bacall echoes in the breathless quips that Finney and Billie Whitelaw trade in some of the movie's best moments. Prepare to enjoy a pacey, brilliantly written plot which refreshingly expects the audience to have the knowledge and intelligence to keep up and be swept away. I was pleasantly surprised with this movie.

Unable to go home for the holidays, young girls Greta and Sumac are forced to remain at their boarding school with Rodney, the headmaster's son. They meet Meba, a baby flying saucer from Venus.

Mainly of interest as a precursor of E.T, which borrows at least three or four of its key ideas, this is actually a slightly below average entry in the children's features turned out by Mary Field's unit at Elstree for Rank's Children's Film Foundation even though the direction is occasionally inventive and it all comes to really fine climax. The problem at the heart of the matter is that the Venusian's doings are not only a bit on the dull side, but the technical trickery now seems very unsophisticated to an E.T trained audience. It might interest completists of CFF movie fans but otherwise don't really bother.

A group of people are invited to stay in a haunted house for 1 night. If they manage to survive the experience, they stand to win $10,000.

A moody, atmospheric and surprisingly comedic chiller, this horror classic is an old-movie lover's dream come true: terrific sets, great use of music, an intelligent and layered screenplay, a charismatic leading man in Vincent Price, and some intricate and downright unpredictable twists along the way. What begins as an effective but simple haunted-house yarn gradually develops into a nifty little thriller, filled with unsavoury and untrustworthy characters slowly unraveling a mystery while the threat of ghosts and ghouls haunts every scene. If you're a horror fan of all kinds, you should take a look at this cult classic.

A thoroughly entertaining (and true!) movie about a World War II German POW Franz von Werra, an ace Luftwaffe pilot shot down during an air battle over Britain in 1940. He not only escaped twice (but got recaptured) from 2 different camps on British soil but actually managed to totally escape for good when he was transported to a remote POW camp in Canada in January 1941 by train, cross the St Lawrence river into the US and find his way back to Germany via South America and Spain. The movie defies convention by actually allowing the bad guy to outfox the good guys. Even though you shouldn't, you actually grow to like this cocky and ingenious man because he absolutely refused to let his captivity stop him from thinking of creative plans to escape. German actor Hardy Kruger is brilliant as von Werra. The cinematography is also fantastic showing the bleak, cold and wet Autumn landscape of the Lake District. This is a very well made and enjoyable movie of one soldier's quest by any means necessary to find his way back home.

A British officer during the time of the Raj goes on a mission to find the truth behind the stories of people going missing all over the country. He discovers a cult devoted to Khali, the goddess of death and destruction who like to kill by strangulation. They pose a serious threat to the British.

Apparently based on a true story, this great Hammer production is low on horror but higher on adventure. The violence is implied rather than shown, but the movie doesn't shy away from the cult's grotesque acts. Eyes and tongues are removed, but most are garrotted with a ceremonial silk scarf. When the action is away from the cult, the story plays out more like a period detective thriller, as the British officer plunges himself deeper into this secret world while the Indian population denies the cult's very existence. Hammer stalwarts Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing are absent but Guy Rolfe proves to be a perfectly watchable leading man. This movie is one of Hammer's most interesting and thrilling production. Well worth a look.

Mihara Shoma, a first-year in high school, receives a message from his best friend Atsushi, who he hadn't heard from in ages to attend a festival in a small village high up in the mountains. Once he arrives there, his friend Atsushi isn't there. Instead, he meets a girl named Shiori, who has someone she wants to meet as well. Will Shoma be able to meet Atsushi once again?

This is a wonderful anime movie with a simple story which is easy to understand, without many twists in the plot about a place where a very special festival is celebrated - The Festival Of Reunion in which the dead can talk to the living for a short time. Both Shoma and Shiori have somebody they want to reunite with. Shoma has closed his memories to a traumatic incident that happened a couple of years previously. It's easy to identify with the lead characters and parts of the story will trigger some feelings of nostalgia, guilt and sadness — maybe some tears as well with some people. The animation showing the beautiful background sceneries of the Japanese countryside and mountain views is excellent. It's not exactly a memorable anime movie but it is worth watching if you have a spare hour or so.

A hospital doctor Mark Fenton who operated on a hit and run victim becomes ensnared with the double-dealing members of a crime ring after falling for a glamorous woman named Della Freeman. He is soon under suspicion for the murder of the hit and run person after Fenton discovers his body in a flat.

This is an interesting low budget British thriller about a hospital doctor who turns detective to find out who has tried to frame him for murder. Although it is a little bit too talky at times, I found that the plot moved at a fair pace and it got a bit exciting near the end when everything is explained to the viewer. The best person in the cast even though he has a small role is that of future Dr Who star Roger Delgado who plays a sinister foreigner. I enjoyed this movie with it's satisfying ending.

Marlo is a New York suburbanite who's about to give birth to her 3rd child. Her husband, Ron, is loving and works hard, but remains clueless about the demands that motherhood puts on his wife. When the baby is born, Marlo's wealthy brother hires a nighttime nanny named Tully to help his sister handle the workload.

If you can get by the nothingness that takes place for the first 95 percent of the movie, you eventually will get a surprise plot treat in the last 5 minutes. But that 5 minutes does not take away the pain of sitting through this boring hour and a half. It is a painfully dull movie. The acting especially by Charlize Theron is good but that's about it. I think parents of children will appreciate this movie more than anybody else perhaps?

A brilliant war movie set in Sudan during the late 19th century with the British Army retreating from the country by the forces of the Khalifa. Harry Faversham is an officer in the British Army but resigns when his regiment is called up to go with Kitchener's troops to retake Sudan. He is shunned by his friends for cowardice. After receiving some white feathers which is a sign of cowardice, Harry disguised as an mute Arab travels to Sudan to help his comrades in their battle against the Khalifa.

This is probably the best version of A.E.W Mason novel and contains a plethora of adventures, heroism and breathtaking battles. Wonderfully shot in glorious technicolor with breathtaking cinematography. It's similar to another classic desert movie - that of Lawrence of Arabia. Scenes of the running battles on horseback with the natives are very well choreographed. I really liked the story of honour, courage and loyalty. There's some excellent acting by John Clements as Harry Faversham. This movie has an abundance of action, intrigue, and suspense. You won't regret seeing it.
