Posted on Sunday 3rd May 2020
Revenge Second Sight Films Certificate 18 Over the years there have been many "revenge" themed movies, a lot of which used uncomfortable and challenging set-ups to grasp their audiences.

The Beyond Shameless Certificate 18 There are some movies that horror fans have multiple copies of, for me it's The Evil Dead, Halloween and Zombie Flesh Eaters.
