Tonight’s movie.

The Burbs.

Joe Dante’s take on the suburban neighborhood is one of the best comedy/horror type movies of the eighties.

At it’s heart The Burbs is a satire of small town suburban paranoia and the dangers of the nosey neighbor, but has enough great comedy and horror homages to make any fan of eighties comedy horror happy.

Getting released around the world with a slick new transfer this is yet another addition to your Halloween to do list.

I love this street.

Tonight’s movie.

The Town that dreaded sundown.

This is the tale of a town that is really two towns Texarkana, and the legacy of violence left in the wake of the original movie version of The Town that dreaded sundown which has become a morbidly celebrated icon, in this story, that movie is real, making this a kind of meta textual sequel.

The stand out for me is the amazing Mario Bava inspired colors captured by the cinematography in the movie and the strong slasher villain.

This is one to add to the Halloween watch list.

Just beware of trombones.

Tonight’s movie.

The Boxtrolls

The craft of stop frame animation is almost as old as movies themselves and yet just like black and white photography, it is still as fascinating and beautiful to look at as it ever was.

The Boxtrolls is a hand crafted and 3d printed work of fantastic animation telling the story of pacifistic little trolls who find themselves at odds with a cheese loving upper class and a wannabe social climber desperate for a piece of the big cheese.

Funny endearing and fascinating to look at.

Tonight’s movie.

Rocky 4.

The Rocky series ventures into almost comic book fantasy territory with this installment which features an intercontinental rivalry between the USA and Russia, a robot, the death of a friend and lots of eighties power rock.

From the opening image of two boxing gloves colliding in an explosion, the movie gets bigger and bigger into boxing fantasy action.

Eighties excess summed up in film form.

Tonight’s movie.


Starring William Katt’s sweaters.

House is a great comedy horror movie in which William Katt must do battle with his own haunted memories inside the old family home of his youth.

The doors are doors to parallel dimensions, the mirrors lead to abyss like shadow realms, the neighbours are of the nosey snoopy kind and the visions are very real.

Great creature effects work, some stunt choreography by the mighty Kane Hodder, a script with the mark of Fred Dekker and very well directed by Steve Miner.

One of the coolest skeletal villains shows up at the end like a living Iron Maiden album cover.

Buzz off from He Man even makes an appearance.

HOUSE, is up there with the best of fun eighties comedy horror.
