parlor of horror   All things horror… and some sci fi  too…

I finally got around to watching this film which has been in my Netflix queue since I read the review on Written in Blood, 7 MONTHS AGO! I like a lot of the films and books that John, curator of Written in Blood, reviews and I’m glad Tyson set up this Blog-a-thon which gave me the perfect reason to watch Jug Face.

The Devil Inside (2012)

movie blogathon poster

What I have taken the most satisfaction and pride from with my ‘Recommended By‘ blogathon is the few people who have watched & reviewed movies they have seen me write about. I feel honoured even one person reads my site never-mind goes out of their way to watch something based on my recommendation. And that theme continues today as my good friend Al from A Mixed Bag endured a movie I despised…….can’t say I didn’t warn you Al!!

Film and Things which I’ve been following for a while reviewed 13 Sins back in March. Also, Cibarra, whom I co-wrote a few movie reviews with on my blog, was intrigued by 13 Sin’s premise and suggested we check it out.

Eden Lake (2008)

movie blogathon poster

Once again I find that I am the inspiration for a fellow blogger, as today we are joined by Todd from Cinema Monolith. He is here to share his thoughts on a film he saw me review a while ago, a little British thriller named Eden Lake. It’s always a pleasure to get Todd involved on my site, and I know the feelings are more than mutual as these are words he actually said about me on his site:

Thank you, Tyson, and thank you for taking time out of your busy day to visit my humble blog. Oh, and Tyson…thank you for making me a better writer, an even better human being, and an overall wonderful guy.

Sure, it may be in a sarctastic manner, but that’s not the point. Anyway, after reading his review please be sure to stop by his site and abuse him a little.

The Collection (2012)

Next up on my ‘Recommended By‘ blogathon is Anthony (or you probably better know him as atothewr) from A Zombie Movie For The Holidays. He was actually inspired (sort of) by my review of The Collection. Just as an aside….I actually like the movie much more now than I did when I reviewed it if anyone clicks the link to see my review. After the 3rd and 4th watch it really hit home in a more positive way. But this is Anthony’s time, so enough from me and here’s Anthony’s take on The Collection.

What I’ve Been Watching…..

did you miss me

Wow, 7 months have passed since I last posted here. As many of you will know, my beautiful daughter Ava was born on Halloween and I’ve had no time for anything really except marvelling and obsessing over her. Now she’s in a sleeping routine, she is letting me watch a few movies here and there. I worked so hard to start this blog and build up a community, and I feel very lucky to have done so. Whilst I hoped the blogging world would just stand still and mourn my absence, I am guessing it continued and thrived and I’m hopeful there is still some kind of audience I can tap into. But we shall see, so I’m here to test the waters and try to entice some people to keep checking this little place out. The caveat is that WordPress and the UK had some ISP issues, and whilst that appears to be fixed, I have lost all the sites and people I followed/was followed by, so please shout out below, drop a like or let me know if you’ve seen anything I’ve reviewed so I can find you and your site again!

My old style of reviewing will have to be revamped, and in a time-saving effort my posts will now be in a new format. I’ll be talking briefly about some movies I’ve seen and posting them all in one big post. A lot to read in one go I admit, but since I probably won’t be posting more than once a week, this way I’ll get more reviews out there, and then have more time to check out all your sites and get back in the game.

Thanks to everyone who emailed/tweeted/facebooked me whilst I was on hiatus, your messages and support was much appreciated. You know who you all are, and I’m hoping this time I’m back for good. Until baby #2. Anyway, enough rambling, and here are my thoughts on a few films I’ve seen in the past few months.
