The Platform (2019) mini-review

Taut and claustrophobic. Does a great job on a limited budget. Netflix defaults to dubbed English version, but you can change it to Spanish with subtitles to get the original sound. I really enjoyed this on many levels. Pun intended. 8 Skelpometer lockdown points.

Parasite (2019) mini-review

Believe the hype. I haven’t seen the colour version, but the black and white is a masterpiece. Funny, shocking, beautiful and ugly.

10 Skelpometer points.

Brain Damage (1988) mini-review

Classic camp 80s schlock with a heavy-handed addiction parable. Some brilliant in-camera effects for the budget. If you like gory, over-the-top horror then this is for you. 8 S-points.

Pulse (2001) mini-review

I’m usually a big fan of J-Horror and techphobic dystopia , so this looked perfect for me. It was so disappointing – started creepy with a great premise, but got so messy and confused I got bored. Shame. A lowly 4 S-points.

Videoman (2018) mini-review

One for fans of weird 70s Italo horror and stark realist dramas. So perfect for me then! Loved it. Rated 8 on the Skelpometer. Might be a 9 after I think about it for a while.
