    I remember an Irish horror made in the last say 10 years about a couple driving around old country roads and they keep ending up at this odd characters house. It wasn't bad. Could have been set up north.

    That is going to really annoy me now...

    Has Widows' Peak had a mention yet? Mia Farrow, Adrian Dunbar, Natasha Richardson, Joan Plowright and Jim Broadbent starred. It was written by Hugh Leonard. I saw it in the cinema when it was released in the mid 90s but I can't remember the plot at all.

    I'm sure I saw it on the telly but likewise cant remember much only that it was set in the 20s or 30s.

    Mention of Mia Farrow has reminded me of Angela Mooney Dies Again. Havent seen full film but saw some clips on I think the Movie Show with Dave Fanning. Didnt make me keen to rush out and watch it.

    It was filmed in Inistioge; we used to go up there and watch. Summer of 1993.

    I just watched that and was just beyond cringe! Can't believe Don Wilson agreed to star in it.What was most cringy was the car chase and how the horses were just sitting in the stalls all saddled and bridled.

    Remember RTEs "Ireland On Film" season which they ran circa 98/99? A lot of the films mentioned were shown including I Went Down and a good few more obscure films like Alisa and Korea.

    I taped most of those. I also remember
    The Boy From Mercury
    Drinking Crude
    Joyriders

    They showed lots of shorts then too.

    "CONTRACTORS"


    Watched these two shorts today - can't remember how I came across them. I thought it might have been this thread but on checking it seems not.


    Described as a black comedy concept sequel short film for potential Irish TV series about two hit men for hire. A strange effort from the people that brought you "Thank you, come again" and it is difficult to tell whether it's supposed to a drama or a 'fly on the wall' documentary about life on de Nortside. Absolute tripe but at least they didn't take long to watch.

    I remember an independent film about New Age Travellers made in West Cork in 1995 called Changing Times. I knew someone in it so went to its (only) screening. Complete rubbish, the director had gotten a generous enough grant from the Arts Council and most of that must have gone on a scene where a caravan goes on fire.

    I remember that being shown on RTE.. One grim film particularly the ending.

    Just searched it on Wiki, jaysus

    One of my life highlights was making it to a summer solstice new age traveler rave in a bog in horse and jockey, it was unreal. A better movie than changing times I’d imagine

    Hardly forgotten. It's a classic western and better known as "Duck, you Sucker!". :D

    Rare trailers for both Reefer And The Model and Budawanney are included here from when RTE screened them over Christmas 1990.

    The Eliminator, very low budget but great fun. I saw it in the much missed Kino cinema in Cork. The only Irish based film I can think of with a Vietnam War flashback.

    Filmed in Ireland rather than an 'Irish' movie, Benedict Arnold: A Question of Honor, a period piece TV Movie 2003 set during the American War of Independence starring Kelsey Grammer and Aidan Quinn.

    I had no idea it was filmed in Ireland, but the numbers of Irish in the supporting cast should have been a giveaway e.g. John Kavanagh, Flora Montgomery.

    Don't get the Irish connection except that it's on the rubbish Irish Post website?

    As Luck Would Have It.

    Recent cheesy Hallmark romcom filmed in Waterford starring Allen Leech (Downton Abbey)

    "As Luck Would Have It" - never heard of it but it looks dreadful begorrah leprechaun style tourist board muck. Watched that IMDB trailer - that'll do. :D

    But sure once you’ve “finished”, and cleaned up, there’s not much else keeping your interest.
