    Cemetery Man

    ★★★★

    Hooptober 8.0. Film #23 At a certain point in life, you realize you know more dead people than living

    A unique blend of over-the-top zombie horror, pitch black comedy, meaning of life philosophy and dreamy arthouse aesthetic. At turns violent, hilarious, sexy, surreal and surprisingly meditative. It really shouldn’t work but Soavi somehow manages to blend all these disparate elements into a semi-coherent and beautiful looking experience.

    Rupert Everett makes for a fantastic lead as world weary cemetery caretaker Francesco…

    Hooptober 8.0. Film #22 Pretty Vacant

This is the best new Muppets vehicle since Muppets Most Wanted.

    The mansion itself looks fantastic, gonzo taking the lead is never a bad thing,…

    Halloweentown II: Kalabar's Revenge

    ★★½

    If it wasn’t for the talk of the internet and a few mod cons you’d never guess this wasn’t made in the 1980s.

    And that’s definitely a good thing.

    Much better than I remembered. Then again any film is improved by listening to my daughter laughing her head off throughout.

    Nobody ranks Bond better for Bond-a-thon

    Quick question first... Is "You swim like a man" the worlds worst attempt at a pick up line?

    Right, I thought it would be fitting to review this one underwater... So scuba diving gear on... here we go
