    Good show!


    Triangle: mind bending time travel thriller - very well crafted.

    Afflicted: low budget found footage horror, but way better than most.

    I never see it mentioned and didn't even know about it when it originally came out. It was a recommendation on a YouTube movie show that I watched so I gave it a go and really love it. If you liked Drive it's definitely one for you.

    State of Grace (1990). Amazing cast. Great story. And arguably one of Gary Oldman's finest performances. And that's saying something!

    Not sure if it went under the radar but a recent one not many have seen is Prisoners.

    The Wanderers. A 1979 movie about teenage gangs in the Bronx during the 60's. Directed by the same man who wrote Indiana Jones.

    Unthinkable with Samual Jackson and Michael Sheen was quite good.

    As was the life of david gale...

    Two movies I wasnt looking forward to watching but immensely enjoyed them

    Mean Creek. Would be a desert island DVD!

    Prayers for Bobby is a made for TV movie that went straight to DVD. Great film. (True story)

    Sigourney Weaver plays the lead but in never got much attention outside the gay community.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Triangle. Moon with Sam Rockwell is one that nobody seems to have seen if brought up.

    Moon is a great film. Humming the theme now!

    dark city, low budget but imaginative scifi that was blown away by the matrix at the time

    dead mans shoes and the red riding trilogy dont get much love but are maybe cult faves

    kill list the same.

    nb apart from dark city, these are all....disturbing at times.

    True romance, also with a Gary Oldman, plays a character called drexel, great scene with Dennis hopper in the trailer

    Ah True Romance hardly went under the radar. It’s got one of the best cast lists you’re ever likely to see.

    Brilliant film!
    Paddy Considine is amazing.

    Tyrannosaur very good too. But disturbing.

    Split Second. Low budget UK action horror scifi with Rutger Hauer.

    Miracle Mile - Very atmospheric movie. The soundtrack is fantastic.

    Bad Moon - Underrated and relatively unknown werewolf movie.

    Near Dark - Relatively unknown Vampire movie, Paxton, Hendriksen, Vasquez from Aliens.

    Near Dark is a good one and sound track fits it well.

    Dudes another oldie but good one with Jon Cryer, Daniel Robuck and Flea
