5.0 out of 5 stars Island of Terror....Island of classic film making!, 23 July 2014
Now this is what you call proper film making and shows why the old classics are far better than what Hollywood make today and here's why.....Peter Cushing ( say no more! ), the ever dependable and dry-witted Ed Judd, an isolated island filmed during the winter months for that more sinister look, research into something that leads to creating a monster or many monsters in this case and the surprise ending....I tell you this film is BRILLIANT from start to finish and if you a lover of old films and have not come across this yet , go and buy it right now and I can tell you right now...you will enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully silly!, 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This film comes from a time when every studio or country wanted to jump onto the film-making band wagon and chuck out any film people might want to see and monster films were no exception and then came denmark who came up with this rather good idea of a film but let down by some fairly poor special effects and acting but to me the film remains enjoyable and even though you might laugh at the monster running amok in the streets of Denmark destroying some poor model buildings and spewing green puke over the people trying to looking scared the film remains entertaining ....it might not be the best of the cycle of monster films but it better then some of the monster films in recent years and one of the worst is Pacific Rim which is far worse than this film ...at least Reptilicus is entertaining Pacific rim is not...ENJOY!

5.0 out of 5 stars DOCTOR WHO AT IT'S BEST!, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To anyone who thinks Colin baker (doctor no.6 ) is one of the worst doctor's in the programmes history needs a swift kick up the backside as this story proves without a shadow of a doubt how wrong that comment may be as this story boosts a strong performance from all concerned and especially from Colin baker , Nicola Bryant , Martin Jarvis and the rest but mostly this story is about violence on TV and how we react to it and for the people on Varos this is the only form of enjoyment they have which is not too different from what we watch today and at the time was criticised for being too violent and the doctor being too violent...RUBBISH I say just enjoy it for the great storytelling , brilliant performances and the great production values....vengeance will be yours if you buy this great DOCTOR WHO STORY!

3.0 out of 5 stars A FLY FILM TOO FAR...?, 23 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to admit from the outside this film looks and sounds brilliant but everything is not what it seems as you start to watch what is clearly a film too far that is so far removed from the original 1958 film that after a time it becomes at best predictable and you start to look at your watch wondering when the film is going to finish and although the black and white look gives the film that spooky feel and a couple of excellent gory make-up moments lift the bar somewhat they really should of stopped after Return of the fly which is far better than this....for a classic film it's not bad but clearly this film is cursed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A BUZZING GOOD FILM..!, 13 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fly [DVD] (DVD)
On a comparison with the more gory 80's film with Jeff goldblum this is by far the much better version with the focus on character development and good old fashioned shock moments and not tons of gory shock tatics which made me feel sick and the one who comes off best is Al hedison (later David ) as the obsessed scientist trying to find a way of teleporting people but unkown to him a pesky fly decides to teleport with him..result..half-man half-fly and doesn't end too well for him and just you wait intill the end of the film with the cries of ( help me...help me!) this is brilliant vintage sci-fi...enjoy if you dare!

This is a prime classic mystrey film that needs to be wacthed by anyone who loves the old films of this era and although the title is misleading and it's not a werewolf film in the normal scheme of things ..the brilliant atmosphere and the fantastic acting make this in my view a masterpiece...watch it and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars How to make a classic film!, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How To Make A Monster [DVD] (DVD)
This was a delight from start to finish with it's errie music and great camera work and was suspenceful all the way through with the title a little bit misleading as they are not real monsters but rather not very happy acters going around in monster outfits to kill the studio boss's who want to close the studio responable for making monster movies in favour of musicals..sheer brilliance as this will appeal to anyone who loves classic movies!

4.0 out of 5 stars ...Brilliant classic!, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Spider [DVD] (DVD)
...As a fan of old classic films i was looking forward to this and it did not dissapoint..yes the acting is not great and the chracters are as believeable as the poor special effects but..but this film kept me entertained all the way to the end and if i'm honest i'd rather watch something like this than what hollywood make today..the sound and picture quality are not too bad but more or less what you would expect for this type of film.

3.0 out of 5 stars ..Poor follow up tp classic film., 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On a comprassion to the classic film of 1953 this is not what i remebered when i saw on tv in the early 90's ...yes it does contain some good storylines but it has a cheap feel to it , the acting is not bad and Jared martin comes off best but the rest of the cast seem to be auto-pilot but too often the aliens loose too easierly when they should win alot more..not bad but i would stick to the film and as for the dvds ..good picture quality but NO exras atall which for this series is just plain odd.
