    Johnny English Strikes Again

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    “Did you make a call quite close to the submarine, sir?”

    Johnny English Strikes Again is a 2018 action spy comedy film directed by David Kerr which follows the titular MI7 agent who is called into action, when all undercover operatives are exposed in a cyber attack.

    The third entry in the Johnny English franchise is unfortunately rather forgettable in comparison to its excellent predecessor, due to a lacklustre plot and humour that barely lands.

    It’s great seeing Bond girl Olga Kurylenko and the soundtrack and VR scene is great but overall this was very forgettable.

    The Lair of the White Worm

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    “I’ve seen you before, Eve. Many centuries ago, in the time of my lover, the great Emperor Carausius.“

    The Lair of the White Worm is a 1988 British horror film directed by Ken Russell which follows an archaeologist who when he uncovers a strange skull in a foreign land, the residents of a nearby town begin to disappear, leading to further inexplicable occurrences.

    A horny, surreal and bizarre little film, The Lair of the White Worm is a loose adaptation…

  • Sound of Violence

    Sound of Violence

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    “What is wrong with you?"

    Sound of Violence is a 2021 Finnish-American slasher film written and directed by Alex Noyer which stars Jasmin Savoy Brown as a formerly deaf girl who goes on a killing spree after witnessing the murder of her family. 

    A movie that crosses Sound of Metal with Saw, Sound of Violence is a film that, despite having a decent cast and some great moments (especially the ending), just isn’t able to live up to its potential.

    It’s very draggy in areas and the plot isn’t always engaging due to this so overall, this was a bit disappointing.

    “It's him all right. Only Lionheart would have the temerity to rewrite Shakespeare!”

    Theatre of Blood is a 1973 British horror comedy film directed by Douglas Hickox which follows a Shakespearean actor who takes poetic revenge on the critics who denied him recognition.

    A bloody and darkly hilarious affair, Theatre of Blood is yet another excellent Vincent Price outing only this time he’s joined by my all time favourite Bond girl, Diana Rigg who is his dutiful daughter who helps…

    “Don't fuck with the Chuck.”

    Child's Play 3 is a 1991 American slasher film directed by Jack Bender which follows Chucky as he returns for revenge against Andy, the young boy who defeated him, and now a teenager living in a military academy.

    The third Child’s Play movie is a really strange case for me — as a child, I really loved it but after not seeing it in years I had practically convinced myself I was going to loathe…

    “Langley was a cakewalk compared to this."

    Mission: Impossible III is a 2006 American action spy film co-written and directed by J. J. Abrams and follows Ethan Hunt, who has retired from field work for the Impossible Missions Force (IMF) and trains new recruits. However, he is sent back into action to track down the elusive arms dealer Owen Davian who looks for 'Rabbit's foot'.

    The third entry in the Mission: Impossible franchise has always been my favourite out of…

    “I just said I wouldn't lay a hand on you. I never said I wasn't going to kill you.”

    Leprechaun Returns is a 2018 American comedy horror film made as a direct sequel to Leprechaun from 1993. Directed by Astron-6's Steven Kostanski, the film stars Taylor Spreitler as the daughter of Jennifer Aniston's character from the original film, who encounters the titular creature 25 years after her mother trapped it in a well.

    “Hey, she's dead? Hey, what the hell are you doing, you didn't say anything about a dead body, we were supposed to save her life!”

    Deadly Friend is a 1986 American science fiction horror film directed by Wes Craven which follows a teenage computer prodigy who implants a robot's hardrive into the brain of his teenage neighbor after she is pronounced brain dead; the experiment proves successful, but she swiftly begins a killing spree in their neighborhood.

    "What do you do if you see something?"

    Hunter Hunter is a 2020 Canadian-American horror thriller film written and directed by Shawn Linden which follows Joseph and his family who live in the remote wilderness as fur trappers, but their tranquility is threatened when they think they are being hunted by the return of a rogue wolf, and Joseph leaves them behind to track it.

    A quietly unnerving film that builds slowly until an intense final act, Hunter Hunter is…

    Leprechaun: Origins

    ½

    “Did he just call me a Nancy boy?”

    Leprechaun: Origins is a 2014 American horror film directed by Zach Lipovsky which follows two backpacking couples in Ireland who come across a town with a deadly secret.

    This reboot of the Leprechaun franchise by WWE Studios is about as bad as one could expect when you take such a franchise and remove the iconic villain.

    This Leprechaun is nothing like Warwick Davis’ — Dylan Postl portrays a boring, snarling and animalistic version…

    The Pit and the Pendulum

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    “I swear by all the saints I'm not a witch.”

    The Pit and the Pendulum is a 1991 American horror film directed by Stuart Gordon which follows the cruel deeds of a monk named Torquemada, Grand Inquisitor of the Spanish Inquisition.

    The second adaptation of the Edgar Allen Poe story is a surprisingly dark tale from Stuart Gordon, with the amount of nudity and violence one comes to expect from him.

    Lance Henriksen is fantastically campy as the villainous Torquemada…

    “Nazis. I hate these guys.”

    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is a 1989 American action-adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg which follows Indiana as he searches for his father, a Holy Grail scholar, who has been captured by Nazis while on a journey to find the Holy Grail.

    The third entry in the Indiana Jones franchise might just be my favourite — sure, I may have biases due to being a Bond fan, but the film’s emotive storytelling and…
