    It was originally, but I've slipped some new ones in since!

    They just popped into my daft big nut, when I thought about it, so I just typed them out

    The Omen and Papillon should've been in there, so now amended! Twelve Monkeys should've ticked the right boxes, but it was too complicated for me...

    Marco.
    Marco, I highly recommend 'Jacob's Ladder' (1990), a rather dark psychological horror starring Tim Robbins and Danny Aello. Pretty creepy and unnerving at times, and it's got some heart.

    Just talked myself into watching it again, it's been a few years
    Pining for the fjords? What kind of talk is that? And why did he fall flat on his back the minute I got him home?

    'Angel Heart' is very good - I quite agree .

    I also really liked 'Delicatessen' (as Marco has on his list) - 'City of Lost Children' is also good.

    'Dark City' is excellent.

    'Martyrs' is very good but also very disturbing (well known as such).

    One of my favourite films of all time is 'Brazil'.

    (If you like a bit of schlock horror - 'The Devil's rejects')

    Oooo, you could be in for a real treat then old bean. If you like dark and fucked up and enjoyed The Lobster, then YL films should be right in your ball park, he's a master of the fucked up and bizarre, in fact I think he deserves his very own genre. Dogtooth is way out there, but I love them all, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, now that's one really fucked up film. Apologies for using the f word a lot, but it's the only truly correct descriptive word to use. I just love his work.

    I'm going to give Doctor Sleep another go, as I won't have any expectations going in a second time and can watch it not thinking I'm going to get The Shining II. Being honest, I thought some of the cinematography was exceptional, those long distance overhead shots were superb and really set the mood, whilst giving a nod to similar shots in TS.

    A busy movie week for me it seems!

    Right, I've just cracked open a new bottle of Ardbeg Ten, so I'm going to watch
