Screen Churn

Cronenberg's 2nd feature, Rabid, is a bit of a mess. Motorbike crash outside experimental hospital leads to some freaky parasite/pitprick foamy zombie nonsense in Canadia. It's badly acted and meanders about for ages as Chambers drains blood via her oxter cock. Wouldn't bother unless there's nowt else on.

Bill Hicks - Relentless - can't remember if I've seen this before but there wasn't much I hadn't heard before, that didn't stop it being a very entertaining 70mins and a benchmark in standup. Astute as always Hicks was excellent at parsing the bullshit from dogshit and he's probably laughing his tits off at us all right now.

The Quatermass Xperiment, urgh, Q played by an American with a thick accent in the manner of a NYPD cop ?! I guess they were right in casting the barking yank as it was moderately successful over the pond. It's a familiar tale of crashed Space Mission has a nastiness ridden survivor, it's very stilted almost documentary like, reeks of the 50's and the Yank-Q is a crap but it musters something up out of the ether and for vintage scifi it'll keep you entertained. And seems you can watch it for free on Veoh
