    Glad to have finally had a chance to see this. Really well made and paced with a few great jump scares and creepy moments. Unfortunately otherwise it’s all stuff I’ve seen before; that seems to be the main issue with exorcism/possession films,  there’s only so many times I can be scared by someone screaming, spewing and biting people whilst flying around the room.

    So a good first film in this universe, no classic and I doubt I’ll rewatch but enough to make me want to go on with the others.

    Richard Stanley makes a long overdue return to horror with this dementedly brilliant old skool Lovecraft tale. Adapted in a similar way to Stuart Gordon’s takes on the author, this goes all out on gooey, largely practical effect driven craziness with game performances from the whole cast.

    Cage  is perfectly cast in this, a normal guy who just straight up loses his shit when he and his family become poisoned/possessed/influenced/controlled by a bright pink alien parasite that crash lands in…

    Superb voodoo zombie film. Pullman is great as the scientist who will not quit, with fantastic supporting work from Zakes Mokae as the bad guy Dargent and Brent Jennings as Louis Mozart, the maker of the zombie powder. Some very creepy nightmare sequences, plenty of bits to make your skin crawl and one bit to make any bloke cross his legs made this a thoroughly enjoyable watch from start to finish. Ending goes a bit Nightmare on Elm Street in a cheesy 80s way but whats not to love about that. Highly recommended for any horror fan and especially zombie fans.

    Still pretty much the greatest action film ever made. To see it on an Imax screen just made it even better and when the worst thing I can say is some of the matte work from 30 years ago looked a teeny bit ropey on a 25m screen, it shows how well this film has aged. Just an absolute masterpiece. The best action, the greatest creature design, no CGI, the most quotable, epic characters (Vasquez and Hudson we salute you), I don't think this film will ever be bettered in terms of hardcore violent sci-fi action. My no.2 favourite film of all time.
