If you are open to the found footage sub-genre or you just want to watch something completely creepy and off the wall, Be My Cat can't be recommended enoughRead More
Its obvious now that looking back at Biller's career, it was only natural things played out the way they did; with The Love Witch effortlessly marrying the two elements that signify Anna Biller's distinctly unique brand of modern film-making.Read More
Ultimately this was a boring film; one that not even beautifully naked, blood-covered vampire women could save.Read More
In 60 seconds, I experienced most of the emotions I would have experienced by the end of most other films. Excitement, arousal, disgust, and intrigue. 60 seconds.Read More
No one is safe either; women, children, dweebs all suffer equally at the wrath of the dark lord, and the audience is left with their senses just as violently assaulted, ultimately leaving them blood-thirsty for more!Read More
Entering in on the back of gleeful anticipation, expecting a good time with a film built on toilet humor and gag jokes, they had no idea the kind of transformative, introspectively deep experience it would turn out to be.Read More
Political satire, bits of nationalism, insane amounts of executive detail, and finally that goofy looking, horrifyingly powerful, radioactive lizard we all love. This was a near-perfect marriage between the spirit of the older films and the flash of modern effects-driven cinema, with its only blemishes coming by way of questionable casting and some goofy monster animation.
Oh, and speaking of goofy.
I'm a HUGE fan of the initially derpy first form. Great intro to the big G, and fantastic reboot of the franchise; Toho and crew nailed it.
Toho reclaims the Godzilla universe by putting out one of the strongest reboots of a franchise I have ever seen. They manage to retell a origin story we all know far too well without alienating or boring the viewer. It feels like you are watching what would happen if Godzilla erupted from the waters and began to reign terror on Japan in 2016. Characters you care about, quirky humor, and great special effects are just a few things Shin has going for it. The on screen presence and look of Godzilla is probably my favorite incarnation I have seen thus far.
This is just the beginning. Hopefully Toho Continues to bring more entries to coincide with the recent American reboots and we can just binge on two drastically different cinematic universes and soak up all of the big lizard we can.
This film is a must watch for true Zilla aficionados. GO SEE IT!
The all consuming, suffocating darkness that was ever present nearly the entire run of the film, elevated each moment of brutality and poignancy to an effective level it otherwise wouldn't have reachedRead More
This same level of polish extends to the performances as well, with Sam Jaeger delivering a sardonic overly enthusiastic douche-y performance - reminiscent of Bruce Campbell's Ash in the Evil Dead series - as the impostor holy man, Father LanceRead More
So imagine my surprise when the film threw me a curve ball, and added a legitimately thought-provoking story through a compelling narrative, on top of what was already expectedRead More
Kevin Kopacka weaves here a thought-provoking visually hypnotic tale that's as much a horror film about the sinful nature of mankind as it is an introspective abstract painting come to life, begging to be torn apart and analyzedRead More
...one part Night of the Living Dead, two parts Ghostbusters, with shades of Clerks, wrapped in a heavily post-processed neon visual style that strikes me as cross between Argento's Suspiria, and Refn's Neon DemonRead More
This left me then, with the million dollar question; did it live up to the (mostly self-made) hype? Was it worthy of the lofty, prestigious label, "spiritual successor to Scanners" bestowed upon it by the horror community?Read More
It's a 23 minute crescendo into a finale that's guaranteed to leave quite the impression...Read More
Everytime someone asks me, what movie has disturbed you the most? I always answer, "Christmas Cruelty", (editor's note: what "O'Hellige Jul" translates to) because it is one fucked up movie, in a good way.
Christmas Cruelty: We follow a serial killer and his victims as they all prepare for Christmas in their own ways. This year it doesn’t matter if you have been naughty or nice, Santa is coming to town no matter what, and he knows where you live.
There is something raw and authentic about the cinematography in this film that it just disturbs me in a really good way. It is a brutal, very mean movie, from start to finish. "Christmas Cruelty" has one of the most disturbing opening sequences that I have ever seen and after that I never really felt safe or like I could relax for a bit, because I felt that soon something even more brutal and disturbing would come, and it did.
These are the kind of my movies that really tickle my horror itch in the best possible kind of way. The actors are really good, especially the psychotic santa. Everything works so well in this movie, the cinematography, the SFX, the dialogue and the script. I would love to be able to work with the people who did this movie one day. Norway has produced another excellent horror film and if you love brutal and nasty movies, this one is for you!
Sure it was campy, but mostly just awful, so when I found Camp Blood 4 I knew I had to watch this.Read More

There's a fine line between a bad movie, and a so-bad-its-good movie, and boy oh boy, does this one straddle that line. Hard.Read More
