A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night


movie scene

Sometimes a film comes along and becomes nearly universally acclaimed. Sometimes the film earned it and sometimes it’s all just hype (and in some cases it’s a bit of both). Now when a film like that comes along, if it deals in or near genres that I love the most […]

Christine


movie scene

Today on the menu we have Christine, an adaptation of a Stephen King book about a killer car that isn’t Maximum Overdrive. This one was directed by John Carpenter (which is usually a good thing) but it definitely never enters my list of best Carpenter films. However, there is enough […]

Crimson Peak


cover image

Crimson Peak is a beautifully realized film; everything from the Hammer/giallo inspired lighting and sets to the costumes is beautifully realized. However, and I really hate to say this….Crimson Peak is not a very good film. I urge fans of horror films in general to basically throw money at this […]

Dead Alive


movie scene

Back before he was some sort of corporate whipping boy on the company payroll who was hired to make generic blockbuster films Peter Jackson actually used to make decently crafted independent films that ranged from bad to good to decent (I’ll leave it up to you to decide which ones […]

Lady in the Car with Glasses and a Gun, the


movie scene

The Lady in the Car with Glasses and a Gun is a throwback to retro European thrillers and is molded very much after the Italian Giallo. With that in mind, your amount of enjoyment to be had from this film is going to be basically proportional to the amount of […]

Love Witch, the


movie scene

The Love Witch is a film I’ve been waiting to see for quite some time now. While it wasn’t as slavishly of an homage as I was expecting, The Love Witch is a rather unique film in this day and age and is definitely a sight to behold. Written and […]

Malabimba: The Malicious Whore


movie scene

Who doesn’t love a good old fashioned malicious whore? I know I do. Malabimba is one hell of a malicious whore and the film bearing her name is one hell of a slutty malicious movie. Andrea Bianchi directed this fine piece of euro sleaze and that isn’t surprising as most […]

Nekromantik


movie scene

Nekromantik will only appeal to a small group of viewers that aren’t easily offended or grossed out; but for those willing to give it a look, they’ll find one of the most beautiful and lovingly made films about sex after death that has ever been created. For those who don’t […]

Nekromantik 2


movie scene

Nekromantik 2 is a well done, finely crafted film in its own right. However, coming fairly hot off the heels of Nekromantik 1, the film is a slightly different yet pale shadow of its older brother. Much of Nekromantik 2 feels like a slightly lesser film that still deals with […]

Odd Thomas


movie scene

Facebook friend Josh Cano told me to watch this one and I liked it a lot more than Stitches so at least it has that going for it. I might be in the minority here (not really sure because I slept on this film for a while) but Odd Thomas […]
