I first saw this film when it premiered on TV 10-12 years ago and forgot the name. Years later I came across it again and finally got the DVD version. Based on the short story by horror writer Shirley Jackson (who also wrote "The Haunting Of Hill House"), "The Lottery" is the film adaption of a story that was controversial in the USA of 1948 when it was first published. It follows the tale of a man who returns to the village of his distant childhood to locate his mother's grave thus enabling him to scatter his father's ashes by her side. The villagers however are particularly unhelpful, at first claiming no knowledge of her, then giving conflicting accounts of how his mother died, until they become openly hostile towards him. There are two twists to the tale, one being the truth regarding his mother's death, followed by a more subtle and disturbing one right at the very end. Although a modern, well-produced little film, "The Lottery" has the feel of an earlier era of "The Wicker Man" or "Doomwatch" in its tale of a strange isolated community with a nasty secret to hide. With an almost perfect pace, good solid performances from the whole cast, and the eerie paradox of perfectly happy, yet strangely disturbing village life, this is one of my favourite films.

David K (us) wrote: A true capture of time, "Monterey Pop" helps define a time in history by simply recording. There is no story, there is no drama, there is just existing and being a part of it all. The camera work is absolutely superb. It truly embodies the performances and makes every single one engrossing. Even if the music doesn't make much sense acoustically, the visuals do and it instills that sense of wonder, peace, and love that was the Monterey Pop Festival. It's really a nice film to just relax to and to see some infamous rock n' roll performances. A great film.

Rekide M (br) wrote: Great dialogue, amazing battle scenes, and well-organzied extremely interesting plot with real world parallels. Even the original tv cast was able to elevate their acting skills to the big screen. The only weak spot was a villain who seemed very weak and bland.
Michael W (au) wrote: Solid follow-up brings the entire cast back from the original. Keeps the same tone with good action and humour but can't maintain the level of the first. Megan Ward a nice addition as Jack Deth's future wife. Full Moon certainly catered to its fanbase.
