    Roar

    ★★½

    I'd heard about this one before - its legend is writ large in the annals of exploitation cinema - but thanks to Amy and Lowe's recent podcast (go check it out, if you haven't already!), I felt compelled to give it a spin. Everything they say in the podcast is true: as a film, it's a shoddy affair (with the sole exception of Jan de Bon's cinematography), a foolish endeavour, and as Amy noted, the Herzog vibes are strong -…

Shades of Cat III gnarliness in all the glorious practical effects, lunatic grins and dismembered body parts. For anyone who thought Busan was good but too sentimental, this is your jam. First time director Rob Jabbaz, you hit it out the park my man. A proper horror film for proper horror fans.
