Since you have been kind enough to read this page I guess I should tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Tyson Carter and I’m from the United Kingdom. The reason I started this blog is likely to be the same reason why most people start a blog – to share an opinion. I have been obsessed and fascinated by films ever since as a young boy I walked in on this exact movie scene playing on our TV:
I’m sure I had sat through a whole host of kids films prior to this moment, but as soon as I saw Casino I felt different, almost as if my little mind started to realize that there was this new world of films out there that wasn’t aimed at children, and I began my quest to see as many of them as I could. Some of my favourite films of all time would be The Godfather, Goodfellas, Raging Bull, The Shining, The Deer Hunter, Casino, Pulp Fiction, I Saw The Devil, Drive……..the list goes on, but the underlying theme would be the more adult/violent orientated style of film and the majority would star my favourite actor of all time Robert De Niro. I have even set myself a quest on this site to try and see every one of his films. (Project: De Niro).
Many years later I decided to try and share my feelings and thoughts on the films I had seen in an effort to vent my opinion and hopefully meet some like-minded people along the way. I set up my own site ‘Head in a Vice’ in June 2012, and I try to offer reviews on some of the more obscure horror and violent films in the attempt of unearthing some hidden gems for people. I also run a few projects to try and give my site a community style vibe, including my attempt to offer a review for all the IMDB’s Top 250 Films with the help of some awesome Guest Contributors, and my Desert Island Films project where people tell me the films they would take if they were going to be marooned on a desert island.
I deliberated over my blog name for ages trying to think of something cool, catchy and different and in the end decided I may as well go for the one thing that started my love affair for films, and that’s how ‘Head In A Vice‘ was born. Please give me feedback in the comments sections if you agree or disagree with my reviews, I will reply to every comment and I would love to hear other people’s opinions and get some good conversations going. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy my blog.
