Ferdy's Fox's World of Horror #1

Ferdy Fox World of Horror

Hello Chaps

Ferdy Fox here, connoisseur of the frighteningly fantastic and the morbidly macabre.  Welcome to my World of Horror where I review the latest UK DVD and Video-On-Demand releases.

Every month the British public face an unrelenting deluge of new films from a variety of different viewing orifices. Included are hundreds of Horror and Fantastic Films – and to watch them all would be akin to masturbating on amphetamines - time-consuming, repetitive and likely to give you eye strain!

Django Unchained

Django Unchained 1

© Words William Goodchild

Just when I was tiring of Tarantino he puts a bullet through my heart, a hammer through my skull, and then blows me away with dynamite for good measure. Django Unchained is a film we’ve never seen the likes of before. It has everything: thrills, spills, highs, lows, horror, romance, spectacle, melodrama, and tenderness. (And of course - this being Tarantino - plenty of outrageous violence.) It also provides some big (unexpected) belly laughs I’d not experienced in the director’s ouevre since Marvin got his head blown off in the car.

Repulsion – A Classic Film

As the haunting drums start to beat and the camera zooms away  from the beautiful eyes of Catherine Deneuve, the start of Repulsion is; sinister exquisiteness.

Made in 1965, filmed in West London and shot in black and white, by a then relatively unknown young film director Roman Polanski, this being his second feature and first English speaking film.

Lost Boys - 21 Years On

lost boys the tribe zani 5.

To help mark the 21st anniversary of a horror classic, Lost Boys: The Tribe is a chance to revisit the feelings and emotions the original Lost Boys gave back in 1987. It's strange to write a review of a movie sequel that a large percentage of those reading this will either have not seen or not heard of The Lost Boys. For those who do remember the movie, you rather like me are probably a little bit surprised that it has taken 21 years for a follow on movie to appear.
