Eight Legged Freak
01/09/2002. Our Mark discovers a film that goes for every pun and silly joke it can muster to fill in the spaces between those giant arachnid attacks. Pass the spider catcher, my dear.

El Laberinto del Fauno (Pan's Labyrinth) DVD
01/04/2007. region 2 DVD. Optimum Releasing OPTD0756. time: 120 minutes plus extras in Spanish with English subtitles. Price: £17.99 (UK). Director/writer: Guillermo Del Toro. stars: Ariadna Gil; Ivana Baq; Sergi Lopez; Maribel Verdu; Doug Jones and Alex Angulo.

01/12/2003. Frank discovers that Ferrell doesn’t disappoint when Jon Favreau helms a kooky comedy that proves an instant delight to moviegoers in the offbeat Christmas-themed flick Elf.

01/12/2003. pub: Momentum MP240V. Price: varies around £11.99. 102 minutes). Stars: Christian Bale and Taye Diggs.

Eternal (Mark's Take)
01/10/2005. The notorious Countess Erzsebet Bathory has returned and is repeating her crimes in modern day Montreal. Eternal is a sexy and stylish horror thriller from Canada that unfortunately seems to be re-treading all-too-familiar territory. It gets points for its lavish production design, but very little for originality or real horror.

Exorcist: The Beginning
01/10/2004. The scattershot incompleteness to Renny Harlin's ill-advised follow-up to William Friedkin's classic creep show is evident in the flimsy frightfulness of the overwrought and putrid prequel Exorcist: The Beginning. For those that had to endure inferior sequels to Friedkin's twisted and treasured pea soup-regurgitating nightmarish narrative (read: Exorcist: The Heretic), they may yearn more for this sluggish supernatural tale to end as opposed to embracing its so-called Beginning.

Extraterrestrial - Mark's take
01/07/2012. Extraterrestrial is an amiable romantic comedy with a science fiction premise. Nacho Vigalondo follows up his Timecrimes (Los Cronocrímenes) with a lighter touch, neither as taxing nor as rewarding as his previous film. Waking up with a hangover, Julián Villagrán as Julio realizes he does not know the woman he has been sleeping with. He also slept through the coming of a giant alien spaceship hovering over his city.
