– 2 Pages

The Hitcher - Underrated! – 2 Pages
“Why hasn’t anyone made a sequel to the 1986 film The Hitcher?  A gesture of genuine admiration for the taut modern horror – not degrading it with a second-rate follow-up?  Probably not, argues Roger Kean, who thinks the film starring C. Thomas Howell and Rutger Hauer has been unjustifiably ignored despite all its merits.”

Cannibal Films – Eaten Alive! – 6 Pages
“Are cannibal films simply a cynical excuse for gross displays of sex and gore, or does the fact that they flout every taboo give these works a radical edge?  Julian Petley continues his voyage into the Mondo Cannibale with a look at more recent films dealing with this most disturbing of themes.
