But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Review: About Time

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Monster movies are awesome. David Carradine movies are awesome. But a monster movie starring David Carradine? That's off the awesomeness chart. And, to make matters more awesome, it's made by Larry Cohen. And features Richard Roundtree.

I am talking, of course, about Q: The Winged Serpent, a 1982 B-Movie that I had never even heard of until a few weeks ago. Last night, I saw the trailer. And it was responsible for nothing less than the greatest 152 seconds of my life. Ever.

Don't believe me? Here are four actual lines of actual dialogue from the film:

All that from the guy who wrote Phone Booth? No wonder I'm so excited by the Larry Cohen double-bill that's taking place TONIGHT at London's Roxy Bar and Screen as part of the Scala Beyond film festival.


How much does it cost to gaze in wonder at both Q: The Winged Serpent and Cohen's 1976 God Told Me To? £4. That's it. Four measly little pounds.

I would offer tickets to this out as a competition, but let's face it: that price is basically free already. Now read on to see the Q: The Winged Serpent trailer in its full glory - and then go book your tickets for the ultimate trash-fest in the history of cinema's rubbish bin.
