About Bat 7933 Articles
I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love 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. Currently playing: Always Sometimes Monsters and The Witcher


  1. I like him as Spense in Resident Evil, you know there is something dodgy about his character and then at the end, it’s like…. nooo and then…. he dies !

  2. He played Kantos Kan in John Carter – a small, fun role in a film that was not as bad as people made out, in my opinion.

  3. My favourite James Purefoy role is professor-turned-serial-killer Joe Carroll in the series The Following – character came across as intelligent, intense and very creepy!

  4. I think he was absolutely fantastic in Solomon Kane because it he was dark and moody. This is my all time fave film.

  5. I love James Purefoy, from Vanity Fair all the way to my absolute fave in The Following – he was the reason I watched it!!

  6. John Carter because is one of the biggest films i have have seen him in where he helps the main character rescue the girl.great acting and has some funny lines in it.

  7. Joe Carroll, psychotic Brit to the max! The Following was about as moody and scary as I have ever seen from any made for TV show – I haven’t, as yet, seen any American Horror Story though. Although I will say to anyone that has yet to see The Following (series 1) then find your way to do so or forever miss out on a real televisual treat.

  8. I liked him in Solomon Kane. I know this film was not received well by a lot of critics but I liked it and especially Purefoy’s character. Shame it didn’t go on to be a trilogy as was originally planned.

  9. I use to watch Boon in the 90’s and remember him being in that, cannot remember the character’s name, but well acted along with Michael Elphick.

  10. Hmm tough one, I love him as Joe Caroll in the following but I also love him in Rome. I think over all my favourite is him in the first series of the following.

  11. It has to be Joe Carroll in the Following. His character in that was absolutely unique. He was sinister and scary whilst also being intelligent and manipulative. I think this is one of my favourite characters in TV or film ever.

  12. I loved him as Colville in A Knight’s Tale which is one of my favourite films and you got the sense in the film that his character would rather have just been one of the lads with Heath Ledger’s band of friends

  13. My favourite role he’s played is Spense from Resident Evil, I’ve loved the whole series of films to date and think Milla Jovovich is incredible in them!

  14. Joe Carroll in The Following, great series with Kevin Bacon, a few As if moments, bit like the 24 series but plenty of believable twists to keep you hooked 🙂

  15. Joe Carroll such an awesome actor huge fan of the Following so annoyed when they decided to pull the plug on it they could have gone the way of using him like Hannibal Lecter.

  16. My favourite has to be Marc Antony in Rome. I loved the mini-series, it was really edge of your seat stuff and I thought he played the general Marc Antony brilliantly

  17. Joe Carroll in the following because he really played his part brilliantly. So manipulative and creepy. Brilliant xx
