31 Days of Streaming Halloween – Day 6 – Waxwork (1988)

We distinctly remember the video cover of Waxwork from the 80s - it absolutely terrified us as children with lots of weird, distorted - well, waxy - faces peering out of a door. The film is an odd one; it's still really unsettling but it's not that scary. There's a mix of things running through … Continue reading 31 Days of Streaming Halloween – Day 6 – Waxwork (1988)

31 Days of Streaming Halloween – Day 5 – Night of the Demons (1988)

Night of the Demons is a terrible film, let's face it. The acting is turkey, the plot is dire and there's some real moral compass issues watching it 30 years on.

31 scary movie moments – 13) The opening of Maniac (2012)

Franck Khalfoun's remake of the infamous 80s slasher is brutal from the very start, even before we've had the main film title. Elijah Wood's serial killer Frank Zito stalks a woman, and then murders and scalps her. It's all set to a haunting 80s synth score by Rob, leading into a really difficult and uncomfortable … Continue reading 31 scary movie moments – 13) The opening of Maniac (2012)
