I love Arnie. Yes I said it, I do, I love him and I don’t care who knows it!
Gratuitous, pointless and actually quite boring Patricio Valladares Hidden in the Woods was one of the worst films of 2012’s FrightFest so it was with more than a little hesitation that I took my seat at FrightFest a few years back to see his latest offering entitled Downhill.
There is no doubting Dario Argento is a master of horror with classics like Suspiria, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage and Tenebre all hailed by film experts, filmmakers and fans alike as true genre masterpieces but what is it about his movies that really gets under our skin and stays there?
I had heard of the cult classic Japanese movie House in hushed tones and wicked whispers but nothing could prepare me for the sheer insanity of this horror comedy that is both hilarious and horrifying in equal measure.
