  • X Cert The British Independent Horror Film 1971-83

    This is from Hemlock books.Written with tongue in cheek humour.I reckon that I saw many of the films on their cinema release

    Should the title of this post be “X Cert” rather than “X Cer2”?

        Why? What were you using when you mid-typed that?

          Perhaps he is missing a T or maybe not?

              One of the problems with Kindle is that the keyboard is too small and can be unresponsive

                Yes yes yes, this is all very interesting, but what's the book like? It's about 16 quid, so I don't want to just shell out on the off-chance it's good.
                Has anybody got it? Is it funny? Is it accurate?

                  I have it. It is written by John Hamilton, who I think was a member of the old forum. I got it when it first came out and unfortunately don't remember a lot about it, but I see I had written myself notes on a sheet of paper placed inside the book jotting down minor spelling and factual errors.

                  For Steve: Peeping Tom is included . . .

                      Included as a factual error?
                      I still don't think it's a horror film by any measure or definition of that very loose genre

                        To me a horror film is Zombie's, Man-eating monsters, Dracula, Frankenstein, etc;

                        I would say Peeping Tom is a 'psychological drama', about a deeply disturbed and traumatised young man, still living childhood experiences.

                          It's refreshing to agree with you for a change Mark.

                              I have the 1951-1970 book which I find very useful and well written with some good film posters and scenes etc.
