An undoubted pop culture classic, Hawk the Slayer (PG) continues to amaze viewers with its fearless combination of swords and sorcery, prophecies, revenge and brotherly violence – all topped off with a disco-style soundtrack!

When his father is mortally wounded at the hands of his brother – the evil wizard Voltan – Hawk is bequeathed a magical sword which responds to his thoughts.

BatWhilst I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, nothing can beat a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. I don't do 3D movies so put the red and green spex away!
