Like Yellow, Blue freely traverses the lines between fact(...)

I Drink Your Blood (1971)

I Know What You Did Last Summer (1998)

Aimed squarely at the teenage TV audience, this stalk-and-slash saga from director Jim Gillespie gives Scream (1996) writer Kevin Williamson the chance to revive his favourite psycho-killer clichés. Here, four high-school graduates (played by Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr) cover up a hit-and-run accident, only to have the dark(...)

I Love You, Alice B. Toklas! (1968)

I Married A Monster From Outer Space (1958)

A distraught Marge Farrell (Gloria Talbott) is growing increasingly alarmed over the changes in her new husband Bill (Tom Tryon), who's been acting strangely ever since their wedding night. And for good reason: Bill - and most of the other men in their small town - have been taken over by sinister aliens who have(...)

I Spit On Your Grave (1973)

This still-notorious film now seems tame in the gore and nudity departments, but its violence against women is still outrageous. A writer in a rural town is raped and beaten by a gang of men, and then one by one stalks and kills them. Shot in a blank, unemotional style which paradoxically makes it very intense.(...)

I’ve Gotta Horse (1966)

British rock and roller Billy Fury jeopardises the success of his summer show when he misses rehearsals in order to spend more time with his animals, particularly when his racehorse runs in the Derby. Fury deserved better than this dumb confection, which failed to do for him what similar threadbare flicks did for Cliff Richard.(...)

Ice Cold in Alex (1958)

One of the great British war films of the 1950s, J. Lee Thompson’s Ice Cold in Alex is a gripping thriller about an ambulance commander (John Mills) and his efforts to transport two nurses through treacherous, enemy-occupied North Africa during World War II – not realising there’s a German spy in his midst. Shot in(...)

Ice Station Zebra (1968)

John Sturges' masterclass in how to adapt mediocre material for the big screen takes Alistair MacLean's potboiler and produces a Cold War thriller that relies on claustrophobic tension. Rock Hudson, Ernest Borgnine and Lloyd Nolan give solid performances, but it's a fresh-off-The Prisoner Patrick McGoohan who steals the movie as wily intelligence agent David Jones. Commander(...)
