The Horror Community recently lost a family member in the shape of George A Romero "The Godfather of Zombie Cinema". I was still in high school when I discovered George Romero's zombie films, there used to be a hardware store in the town where I live and at the main checkout area there was a bargin basket that sold horror movies on vhs, I purchased both Dawn of the Dead & Day of the Dead on VHS and those where the 1st movies that exposed me to George Romero, I also discovered other movies of his through reading both The Darkside Magazine and Fangoria.
Thank you George Romero for making such AWESOME movies, you will be sorely missed by all, you were & are a true pioneer and you have inspired and influenced MANY filmmakers ( both established and aspiring ones) myself included,
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, we love you and we will miss you ALWAYS! #RIPGeorgeRomero
Save us some brains!

Prevenge follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree. The child speaks to Ruth from the womb, coaching her to lure and ultimately kill her unsuspecting victims.
Struggling with her conscience, loneliness, and a strange strain of prepartum madness, Ruth must ultimately choose between redemption and destruction at the moment of motherhood.
Prevenge stars Alice Lowe (Sightseers, Locke,Hot Fuzz) who also wrote and directed the film all the while dealing with her own real-life pregnancy.
I really enjoyed watching Prevenge and I highly recommend it to everyone reading this review, it is available on DVD and Blu ray now.

Real-life Wisconsin killer Ed Gein inspired many distinguished films, including: Psycho,The Silence of the Lambs and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but none quite as disturbing as Deranged.
Rural eccentric Ezra Cobb, whose mother's death unhinges him to the point where he not only lovingly preserves her corpse in the living room but also goes out to find 'friends' to keep her company - not all of whom are dead when he finds them! Perversely, Ezra's more worried about what mother would say about his various activities than he is about the prospect of being found out. Indeed, like Gein, he's cheerfully open about his activities when visiting friends, but no-one believes him.
Deranged stars Roberts Blossom (Christine,Home Alone), Cosette Lee, Micki Moore,Robert Warner and Pat Orr.
Deranged was Produced by Tom Kart, Written & Co-Directed by Alan Ormsby & Jeff Gillen,Special effects by Tom Savini.
I Really like this movie and I recommend it to all.

Sexy worldly Mrs. Wardh (Played by Edwige Fenech) endures a stifling marriage in the hope of repressing her perverse past - a sadomasochistic relationship with the degenerate Jean ( played by Ivan Rassimov).
Disillusioned with her unloved existence, she embarks upon a torrid affair with suave playboy George (Played by George Hilton). But Happiness may prove short-lived: as Jean reappears, a brutal razor-slasher begins bloodily dispatching the nubile nymphets of Vienna
Fearing that she may next face the killers blade, tormented and deceived, she spirals into an uncontrollable emotional maelstrom where her deviant desires reawaken in a welter of sex, sadism and slaughter.
The Strange Vice of Mrs Wardh is a 1970's Italian Giallo directed by genre favourite Sergio Martino (Torso), enriched with Nora Orlando's soaring sounds.
I enjoyed the film very much and I highly recommend it to any Giallo fans who haven't seen it.
Special features Include:
All-new 20 min interview with Director Sergio Martino
Director Sergio Martino introduction
Shameless Fact Track by Justin Harries
