Good but i found that Matt Reeves didn't meditate too much to realize this movie because he copies very much (actions, decorations, lyrics...) on the movie "Let the right one in" by Tomas Alfredson. Although, there is only two years between this movie and the new version ! I know "Let me in" is a simple remake but the oldest version was ditributed there is only 2 years ago !!
The movie cost $175 milions (it's more expansive than the first film) and the shooting lasted only one month in Los Alamos in New Mexico. The scenario was largely made : they copy on the swedish version.
It misses originality... it is just a copy ! Thomas TRIBUTSCH -- http://totodunet.chez.com/

this film was made back-to-back with "the plague of the zombies" with most of the same sets and some of the same cast. "the reptile" is the inferior of the two, with not much action and a drawn out plot. the title character is hardly seen which is also a letdown. there are one or two performances, especially from michael ripper as he has much more screen time in this production. the direction is pretty good as well.

this war film is not as effective as hammer's production of "blood on camp island." the main problem with "yesterday's enemy" is that it is simply too grim a film to find enjoyable. the acting, the script and direction are all fine, with stanley baker, guy rolfe, leo mckern and philip ahn standing out in particular. the plot is rather sketchy and therefore, difficult to follow at times.

quite an effective swashbuckler from hammer, "the devil ship pirates" has a fair measure of action, it's reasonably well-paced and of course you get a few familar faces amongst the cast: christopher lee, michael ripper, andrew keir etc etc. i like the climax, it is well staged and exciting.

a rather confusing and non-productive film, i still find things to like about "fear in the night." i like the low key approach with only four actors who play the main characters. there are moments of interest but the ending is disappointing and rather silly.

this really is scrapping the bottom of the barrel: no wonder christopher lee was fed up with doing these dracula films, his character was always being written into the plot as an afterthought rather than the plot revolving around him. "scars of dracula" is no exception as this is the worst hammer dracula film by far. there's no interest shown the in script, plot or acting at all. this flopped quite badly in america which is hardly a surprise.

i was quite curious about this swashbuckling piece from hammer but i didn't find that much to enjoy. the plot is rather tediously explained which i daresay is partly due to the cuts that the BBFC demanded before releasing this film. the action scenes are o.k but nothing special.

contrary to what some people may think, "captain clegg" isn't a horror film from hammer, it is more of a period thriller. peter cushing takes centre stage once again as a smuggler who is masquarading as the local vicar so that his smuggling gang can carry out their illegal activities. unlike his characterization of baron frankenstein, peter cushing's character in "captain clegg" has one or two redeeming features and is not quite so evil. hammer regulars include oliver reed and michael ripper(always great to see him on screen) and a host of other british familar faces.
i like this film for its acting, pace, story and atmosphere. the only ingredient that seems to be lacking, is that there isn't a great deal of action. an enjoyable film nevertheless.

this is rather tame, routine stuff, not to mention a bit perverted at times. pual massie is miscast, he just doesn't show the passionate or tragic elements that help make up the dr. jekyll character. as mr. hyde, he is marginally better but no more than that. christopher lee semms rather out of his depth in this one. he is too stiff and rather too serious to make his performance convincing. oliver reed has a brief role as a gentleman about town and i doubt paul massie would have bested reed quite so easily in real life as in this film.
the ending is so contrived, i was pleading with the film to hurry up and bloody well end!
