Apparently this is something doing the rounds at the moment. Lady P asked me to have a go & I thought it only right to lower the tone, so here it is if anyone's interested. I hope it stirs fond memories of Guy N Smith's KILLER CRABS and other pulp favourites:
Ha! Eat Them Alive strikes again! Must admit, you have performed a magnificent PR job on The Black Spider - really must try land a copy. Had no idea you were such a Michael Moorcock fan - Franklin will be all over you.
From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty.
Moorcock, Wagner, Donaldson, Smith and Blackburn? Wow. Sounds like my bookshelf I only have more different editions of Howard then of Moorcock or Lovecraft. Which I have too many of.
Respect, Lord P. I should listen more to you. I bought The Sleeping Room even after your rather critical review. Usually I like movies which are a mess, but this was a boring mess too. Absolute waste of time.
