Dogs

88 Films

Certificate 15

The 1970s saw a rise in the "nature runs amok" genre of cinema. Thanks to movies such as Frogs and Night of the Lepus (both released in 1972) and obviously Jaws in 1975 the idea of animals turning against us was a nice idea though some movies had more impact than others.

Tokyo Ghoul - Live action movie review
Posted in Reviews, Saturday 10th February 2018

Tokyo Ghoul

Anime Ltd

Certificate 15

Although I'm not the biggest expert on Asian cinema, I'm even less of an expert when it comes to Anime. I do know what I like, though and Tokyo Ghoul is a damn fine piece of cinema.

When a nightmarish encounter leaves him a human-ghoul hybrid however, Ken finds himself taken under the wing of those he once considered monsters and fighting to protect them from a vengeful hunger that will leave him asking what it truly means to be inhuman.

OK, I am not going to...
