Drag Me To Hell (2009)

Director Sam Raimi returns to horror, the genre that gave birth to his career after completing the low-budget classic The Evil Dead in 1983. Raimi’s films have, for the most part, incorporated dark themes (I just won’t mention the atrocious For Love Of The Game – oh no, too late!), and horror is a genre that fits the director like a glove…

Slap Shot (1977)

The Charlestown Chiefs are a two-bit minor league hockey team on the verge of collapse.

However, the increasing infamy is no guarantee of the teams’ salvation, and is less than admired by their star player…

The Grifters (1990)

And indeed, the vision of an obscenity-screaming preteen indecently applying a crucifix to herself still remains one of the most unforgettable in cinema history, even by today’s “torture porn” horror film standards. But The Exorcist is more than just a piece of celluloid designed to shock…
