Reliving the joys of an 80s TV Christmas

Jenny Morrill Dec 20, 2016

Russ Abbot, Bullseye, Noel Edmonds and a film we all watched in the same room. Christmas TV was more exciting in the 80s...

Cast your mind back to when Christmas Day wasn't about Doctor Who followed by sticking something on Netflix until it was time to go watch the annual fist fight outside the pub.

In the 80s, Christmas was about seeing which fantastic fare the TV had decided to bless us with. Of course, the more prepared among us knew this well in advance, having eagerly pored over the Radio Times/TV Times to check that Jimmy Cricket's Family Laugh 'n' Waz would be shown. There it was – right after Reflections On The Eucharist With The Reverend Paul Leyland. »

Frightfest 2016: ‘Night Of Something Strange’ review

26 August 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Night Of Something Strange review: Disgusting, grotesque, and offensive… Night of Something Strange review

It’s all very well a film being disgusting, grotesque, and offensive (especially in the horror genre), but to be those things it also needs to have a point. Whether that be to create uneasy laughter, explore fear, or make one confront nausea inducing situations in a safe environment. Then you get films like Night of Something Strange, a repulsive excuse of a movie. It’s the difference between the offensive humour of Ricky Gervais and the offensive humour of Jim Davidson, one understands how shock and taboo can be funny, the other is just a racist. Night of Something Strange is trying to be edgy, dark, satirical, and confrontational, but is more like a child that has found a few horror clips on Youtube, been turned on by the violence, and thinks it knows what it’s doing. »
