Film Four showing the entire Omen trilogy!!!!!

Listing classic horror films on television is not something I want to make a habit of, but the fact that this ties in to my upcoming review of Damien: Omen 2 is too good to miss. If your a regular viewer of Film Four then you must have noticed the fantastic trailer advertising the original Omen trilogy.

The chaos begins next friday (the 1st of october) at 11pm with the original classic starring Gregory Peck, Lee Remick and of course Harvey stephens. It continues the next day when at the same time they show my personal favourite, Damien: Omen 2. In this Damien (Jonathan Scott-Taylor) is now twelve and has been adopted by William Holden and Lee Grant. It concludes  that sunday with The Final Conflict starring Sam neil as Damien, please note however that this is listed simply as The Final Conflict and not Omen III The Final Conflict.

This then leads neatly into my review of Omen 2 on the 4th and then just so the fun doesn't stop I'l upload another omen related article. Have devilishly good time!

BEST HOMEMADE HORROR IN AGES!; return of the blood sucking nazi zombies

Just when you never thought it could happen it did. A movie based on Jess Franco’s Oasis of the Zombies has been made on you tube, and what a film! It’s a three part serial that so far has managed to pack in Nazi robots, Dr Orloff, Howard Vernon and a girl in a bikini. I’m a big fan of homemade horror movies and think it especially wonderful when people show their appreciation for a film in this manner. For those whose movies have to be perfect in acting, effects, costume and all that stuff, this one tops them all, in those fields. If this bloke keeps it up I think he’ll be giving Don Glut a run for his money.

Night of the Bloody Apes Review (1972)

Everybody with any amount of knowledge of cult films has heard of the infamous video nasty’s list and perhaps even of some of the atrocities on there. Well today folks I’m viewing one but before I do something needs to be made perfectly clear... I’m against the use of gratuitous violence in the horror genre; plenty of movies have sacred people witless without it (just look at The Haunting from 1963, supposed to be one of the scariest movies ever made). Gore doesn’t scare, gore repulses and shockingly (in modern movies as opposed to classic horror) can be used instead of a plot. Yes it’s good to have a bit of blood in a horror movie and a large amount of the greats do, but as soon as you go over the top and sacrifice the films story for a gory gimmicks then despite what you say it is not a horror movie. It’s an exploitation flick (and a rather extreme one compared to some classics).
