Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)

The third film in Spielberg's Indiana Jones series has Indy assisting his eccentric father (Sean Connery) in nothing less than a search for the Holy Grail (albeit several hundred years after Monty Python's knights went looking for it!). In a prologue set in the 1910's, teen Indiana Jones (played by River Phoenix) discovers a group of no-good(...)

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)

This blockbuster sequel to the mega-successful Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) was so gory and surprisingly violent, it led to the creation of the MPAA's PG-13 rating. And if you don't think that was enough to send every red-blooded kid in America racing to the cinema to buy a ticket, you've obviously never been a kid. Indiana(...)

Inferno (1980)

American student Mark Elliot (Leigh McCloskey) receives a letter from his sister Rose (Irene Miracle), who thinks her New York apartment has links to an ancient coven and has some malevolent occupants in the form of the "Three Mothers". When Mark arrives in the Big Apple from Rome (following the untimely demise of his girlfriend),(...)

Innerspace (1987)

Comedy about hotshot airforce pilot Tuck Pendelton (Dennis Quaid) who is miniaturised and mistakenly injected into the body of hapless hypochondriac supermarket clerk Jack Putter (Martin Short). This attempt to update Fantastic Voyage (1966) doesn't measure up to director Joe Dante's best work, but it's still a notch above the usual Hollywood fodder. The effects are(...)

Innocent Bystanders (1972)

Featuring Stanely Baker’s last big-screen role, Innocent Bystanders looks and feels like a hard-boiled low-rent James Bond. Proof that Baker could still do tough guys well, his character John Craig is a traumatised spy long past his peak, who is assigned one last job by his reptilian boss, Loomis (Donald Pleasence), to find a Soviet scientist wanted(...)

Insatiable (1980)

Bored of her pampered lifestyle, an heiress and model accepts a movie role that allows her to indulge in her wildest sexual fantasies. Sandra Chase Marilyn Chambers Ultimate Fantasy Lover John Holmes Flo Jesie St. James Renee Reynolds Serena Roger Adams John Leslie Charles Robert Pennard Steve Mike Ranger Nick David Morris Artie Goldberg Richard(...)

Inseminoid (1981)

Unfairly dismissed on its release as a low-budget imitation of Alien (1979), Norman J. Warren's Inseminoid follows an archaeological team as they occupy a research facility on a remote, inhospitable planet. Whilst investigating unexplored catacombs, Sandy (Judy Geeson) is attacked and inseminated by an alien. When she is brought back to base, she is two months pregnant. Growing heavier(...)

Inside Daisy Clover (1965)

Daisy Clover is a 15-year-old who dreams of Hollywood musical stardom. She gets her wish, but discovers the price of fame, as her personal life begins to fall apart. Gavin Lambert's novel about the turbulent career of a precocious Hollywood musical star of the 1930s had the potential to be a lot of fun, with(...)

Insignificance (1985)

Four unnamed people who look and sound a lot like Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Joe DiMaggio and Joseph McCarthy converge in one New York City hotel room in this compelling, visually inventive adaptation of Terry Johnson’s play, from director Nicolas Roeg. With a combination of whimsy and dread, Roeg creates a fun-house-mirror image of 1950s America(...)

Intelligence Men, The (1965)

In their big-screen debut, British comedy duo Morecambe and Wise are special agents in this espionage spoof. The two were never really able to translate their television brilliance to the big screen, and the surprisingly confusing plot fails to unite their few recognised skits. Ernie, a clerical employee at MI5, meets Spanish café owner Eric.(...)

Interview With The Vampire (1994)

After countless attempts to make a film of Anne Rice's Interview With The Vampire, Hollywood succeeded with Irish director Neil Jordan at the helm. The success of the film was in no small part due to the starry casting of Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt as - respectively - the aristocratic and immortal vampire Lestat, and(...)

Into The Night (1985)

Ed Okin's life is out of control. He can't sleep, his wife betrays him and his job is dull. One night he starts to drive through Los Angeles and ends up in the parking garage of LA Airport. Moments later a mysterious but beautiful young blonde named Diana jumps onto his bonnet and he finds(...)

Invasion of The Body Snatchers (1956)

Fuelled by paranoia and dripping with low-key terror, Invasion of the Body Snatchers put the fear of pod into audiences across the world. Based on Jack Finney's novel The Body Snatchers (serialised in Collier's magazine in 1954), the movie was filmed on a B-movie budget, but the results were strictly A-grade. A prologue sets the tone as seemingly mad(...)

Invasion of The Body Snatchers (1978)

An excellent remake of the 1956 classic, updated and relocated to 1970s' San Francisco. Public health inspector Matthew Bennell (Donald Sutherland) becomes aware of a strange epidemic sweeping San Francisco which sees people all over the city convinced that identical alien creatures are replacing the population. Lots of chills, Mr Spock and the original movie's Kevin(...)

Invasion USA (1985)

A load of Cuban (?) terrorists land on a Florida beach at night, board a fleet of trucks and head for various key cities around America where they blow up buildings and kill innocent people. Who the terrorists actually are, who they are working for, or why they are doing all this is never explained(...)
