Wes Craven’s New Nightmare (1994) – A ’31 Films Of Halloween’ Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Wes Craven’s New Nightmare is to Scream what Halloween is to the Elm Street movies.  Without the former, the later just wouldn’t have existed.  It’s a film that’s far ahead of its time, stepping back years of ‘lesser’ sequels to reboot and close off the Elm Street series in a way that would change horror forever.   It also holds up really well, considering the film is now 25 years old and horror has gone full circle once again.  Okay so some of the later FX look a bit ropey and I’m not a huge fan of the Freddy make up on display here but these are very small quibbles. This remains as important to the horror genre as Halloween before it.

Best Bit: The fact it’s still really bloody good.

Eat Locals – A Quick Capsule Review

Eat Locals – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Eat Locals is a witty, fun British Vampire comedy that suffers a little bit by it’s lack of budget but manages to squeeze in just enough to be an enable, if forgettable romp.  Directed by Lock Stock’s Jason Flemyng and starring a host of familiar British actors, it’s a quick romp that never hangs about to let you get bored.  Sure it breaks zero new ground BUT that’s not always a massive issue if what you have is fun, as it is here.  Not for everyone but those fans of Horror comedies will get enough out of it…

Best Bit: Dexter Fletcher is hysterical
