Exact same thing, yep, made me scared when young..... 'Junior' ....from A single digit, man that freaked me out !Not sure what made me decide to stream Carry On Screaming last night - good for a Carry-on, but not exactly a classic piece of cinema per se. It was the first thing I can recall seeing as a kid that scared me though.
Oh I remember this movie, yes and it was SOME Journey for the lad, Amazing !Lion on blu ray - Dev Patel as the adult version of an Indian child who gets irretrievably lost as a five year-old, and is eventually adopted by a Tasmanian couple. The story then covers his search for his real family, and pretty closely follows the true story upon which it is based. Great performances from Patel, and from Nicole Kidman as his adoptive mother.
One of the best horror that year. And it included a Boards Of Canada trackSinister on blu ray - the story of a failing true crime writer who moves into the house of the victims of the murder he intends to write about. Bad things happen. Not that original, but works pretty well, I think.
I can’t ever watch that without thinking that V is played by Rowan Atkinson as Blackadder II.V for Vendetta on 4k - strays a long way from Alan Moore's source, and some of Natalie Portman's English accent falls pretty flat, but a great story - and the pivotal scenes stand close comparison with the source.
I picked it up last year on Bluray as I couldn’t find it on any of the 5 streaming platforms I subscribe to - I never seem to be able to find any film I suddenly want to watch on streaming. Not particularly convenient…Dirty Rotten Scoundrels on blu ray. Not exactly the deepest, but thoroughly enjoyable in an old-fashioned way. A strong and in parts surprisingly nuanced performance from Michael Caine.
Watched Suspiria in 4K (UHD disc) the other night - not my favourite Dario Argento film, but damn it looks absolutely gorgeous. As does Mario Bava’s Blood & Black Lace.Alien on 4k - one of the few nailed-on top ten films on my list, and a great advert for the format, especially for HDR.
