A cursed cinema spreads its evil through an audience that includes a lot of pretty italian girls, a pimp and a blind man (only in Italian horror would a blind man be in a cinema) turning half of them into ravenous, slime spewing monsters and the other half into squealing victims.

The message behind this one was "Revenge will make you become the monster". That, or "I think I may be getting bored of South Korean revenge thrillers". Or it could equally be "Doesn't graphic head trauma get a bit samey after a while?".

A bunch of soldiers crash land onto an island inhabited by mostly naked women who pass their time washing each other, wrestling and lounging in hot tubs full of special water that keeps them young forever. The soldiers must then fight badly blue-screened, rubber, hand puppet dinosaurs.
Brilliant comedy dramatisation of the hysteria that surrounded Python's Life Of Brian, viewed through a kaleidoscope of pitch perfect Python homage. Superb script, superbly acted and all rounded off with some overt commentary on modern comedy and free speech.

The Amicus box set ends on a high with another Bloch penned portmanteau.
Highlights would be a lady trying to remove a severed arm from her face by repeatedly chopping at it with an axe (an ill thought out move) and a man transfering his conciousness into a tiny robot just by concentrating on it really fucking hard.
I was quietly contemplating whether this was the worst film I'd ever seen when suddenly there was a chase sequence through a rave. "Hang on a moment", I thought, "This is based on a book by Dr Seuss. Why the hell is there a chase sequence THROUGH A FUCKING RAVE?"
I hastened to a conclusion, worst film I've ever seen.
First line of the movie: "Dreams are like stars. You can't touch them, but if you follow them, they will lead you to your destiny." spoken by a russian 'dogmonaut'.
My first thought of the movie: "Fuck off."
It kind of went downhill from there for me, whereas Charlotte positively revelled in having wedges of her intelligence shorn off with every passing minute.
