P. Turton "iannisx"
 
Martin [DVD] [1978]
Martin [DVD] [1978]
"Romero classic, combining gritty downbeat 70's realism with lush b and w fantasy (or are they?) sequences. Director's most emotional, bleak film."
Uzumaki [DVD]
Uzumaki [DVD]
"Japanese oddity."
Affliction [DVD]
Affliction [DVD]
"Excellent, bleak Schrader. His best film, I think."
Affliction [DVD]
Affliction [DVD]
"Which version shall I get?"
Intimacy [DVD] [2001]
Intimacy [DVD] [2001]
"Still not seen this one."
The Last Of England [DVD]
The Last Of England [DVD]
"Jarman always at his best with stream-of-consciousness flow of images rather than dealing with actors/dialogue. See also 'The Garden'."
Werckmeister Harmonies/Damnation [DVD] [2001]
Werckmeister Harmonies/Damnation [DVD] [2001]
"Hungarian arthouse bleakness. Only seen 'Damnation' so far - so grim, it makes Tarkovsky's 'Stalker' look like 'Little Women'."
The House By The Cemetery [DVD]
The House By The Cemetery [DVD]
"Fulci gruesomeness, featuring the fantastically named Dr. Freudstein. Like a pop-art collage of scenes from other horror movies - as with Argento, totally non-linear/anti-narrative."
Nightmare In A Damaged Brain (DVD)
Nightmare In A Damaged Brain (DVD)
"Old school nasty, with that unmistakably grotty 70's grindhouse ambience that films like 'Se7en' ironically tried to replicate using a massive budget."
The Living Dead At Manchester Morgue [DVD]
The Living Dead At Manchester Morgue [DVD]
"Atmospheric mid-70's Spanish/British zombie flick - visceral (literally) FX anticipate Dawn/Day of Dead."
The Adjuster [1991] [DVD]
The Adjuster [1991] [DVD]
"Atom Egoyan's best."
Magnolia - Single Disc Set (1999) [DVD]
Magnolia - Single Disc Set (1999) [DVD]
"Bit mainstream - what a sellout I am. Awful music, but often impressive, even though I hated the director's previous effort."
Dead Creatures [DVD]
Dead Creatures [DVD]
"Sounds interesting (like a 'serious' version of 'Shaun of the Dead', i.e. combining kitchen sink realism and horror) - but way too expensive. Who's going to take a chance at that price?"
Shock Waves [DVD] [1976] [US Import] [NTSC]
Shock Waves [DVD] [1976] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Creates the kind of unique atmosphere only low budget cinema can achieve."
The American Film Theatre Collection: The Homecoming [1973] [DVD]
The American Film Theatre Collection: The Homecoming [1973] [DVD]
"Very menacing and absorbing Pinter. Beckett with balls."
The Birthday Party [1968] [DVD]
The Birthday Party [1968] [DVD]
"Well worth seeing this 60's Friedkin version. Scene where Goldberg's head starts spinning round clearly looks forward to 'The Exorcist'."
The Machinist [DVD] [2004]
The Machinist [DVD] [2004]
"Looking forward to this one coming out on DVD. For fans of Lynch and Polanski. See Brad Anderson's previous 'Session 9' - superbly understated horror. Working on remake of Romero's 'The Crazies' next."
Pitfall - Masters of Cinema series [DVD]
Pitfall - Masters of Cinema series [DVD]
"Teshigahara/Abe/Takemitsu gem. 'Woman of the Dunes' still best of quartet, I think."
God Told Me To [DVD]
God Told Me To [DVD]
"Larry Cohen's highly inventive mid-70's micro-budgeter."
Carnival Of Souls [1962] [DVD]
Carnival Of Souls [1962] [DVD]
"No collection complete without this. Totally blown away when saw it in the cinema. Keep coming back to 'atmospheric' cliche, but no other way to describe it........"
The Servant [DVD] [1963]
The Servant [DVD] [1963]
"Losey/Pinter classic. Slightly let down by overblown finale (OTT camera angles and sub-Fellini orgies) - understated first half way more menacing."
House Of Sand And Fog [DVD] [2004]
House Of Sand And Fog [DVD] [2004]
"OK, there's something a bit MOR, even soap-ish about this downbeat melodrama, but I found it pretty absorbing."
Dolores Claiborne [DVD] [1995]
Dolores Claiborne [DVD] [1995]
"Ditto. Far bleaker than the more feelgood Stephen King adaptations 'Shawshank Redemption' and 'Green Mile'."
The Door in the Floor [DVD]
The Door in the Floor [DVD]
"Again, another impressive mainstream offering."
The Stepfather/Glengarry Glen Ross/The Last Seduction [DVD] [1992]
The Stepfather/Glengarry Glen Ross/The Last Seduction [DVD] [1992]
"Haven't seen 'The Stepfather' in ages - but the Mamet film as psychologically brutal as any recent Neil LaBute offering."
