I watched The Eyes of My Mother which is..well not sure "realistic" but certainly grim and weirdly matter of fact about it.

Cheers for the suggestions.

The trailer for Covenant is pretty disappointing for me, seems to be all the poorer bits from Prometheus condensed into a clip.

Baskin was very enjoyable, it reminded me of the Hellraiser movies. Some of the scenes were pretty over the top and it fell a bit short of being a great movie but, I'd def recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it.

Yeah it's good isn't it? I feel like it's a good start for the guy who directed it, Can Evernol, and he's working on a new film called "Housewife" which I'll be interested to see. I reckon he has at least one classic horror film in him further down the line.

Stumbled across his showreel on vimeo a while back too. Love his visuals. NSFW obviously

Definitely loads of promise shown, I'd be very interested to see anything new from him.

That showreel is pretty cool

'February' ,well worth a look, slow burning possession piece,grim and loaded with suspense/atmosphere/foreboding blah blah blah. All the better because Netflix rated it worthy of one star. Who reviews these things, Jason Statham fans?

February is really good. Osgood Perkins who made it has another one on Netflix I haven't seen yet called I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives In The House. Heavy on the atmosphere again allegedly. Which given his dad was in "Psycho" makes sense

Followed up on that last night, superb 'watch' , I say that because I spent most of it zoning in and out of it just listening to the narration. Anyone considering doing that would be best advised not to be holding a mug of tea in their lap though.

Also realised another pretty good show I watched recently on Netflix called Cold Comes The Night was written, though not directed, by Perkins according to Wikipedia.

Went to the premiere of "Nails" last night. Absolutely terrible film, seemed to be made up of ideas stolen from other better known films, and the acting from the Irish end of the cast (particularly Joe Wall) was fucking atrocious. Shauna McDonald and Ross Noble were fairly decent, but that was kind of the only redeeming thing. As a horror fan, it was so generic as to be downright insulting at points. Part of me wanted to walk out about half way through when at one point in the film the characters decided to instal cameras in the hospital where the story takes place, in a manner which suggests it was solely done so the producers could throw the "found footage" element into the kitchen sink too.

Watched 'Tusk' last night, enGROSSing stuff. Actually thought it the most disturbing thing I've seen since Human Centipede II in terms of how 'it' looked visually. Not one that will be forgotten easily.
