    Club Dread

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    A very entertaining slasher parody (or is it a tribute?) from the Broken Lizard collective. What was perhaps most surprising to me was that the movie actually works quite well as a slasher. Sure, it's a comedy first and foremost, but I quickly became invested in finding out the killer's identity/motive. So while the humour is silly (it always is), you just got to give these guys credit for creating a satisfying mystery.

    I had a blast watching this Michelle.…

    A high quality Vincent Price AIP proto slasher. The Abominable Dr. Phibes shares similarities with Theatre of Blood, but this is the superior movie in my opinion. I loved the (British) cheekiness, the extremely creative kills (death by locust, death by brass unicorn πŸ¦„), the elaborate sets, and of course Price and his theatrical antics. This was obviously highly influential on a lot of horror movies in the coming decades.

    I had a blast watching this with Michelle.

    Beast Cops might just be the ultimate Hong Kong hang out movie. It has such a laid back vibe, that is, until that explosive, bloodshed finale.

    Too bad that they didn't make any sequels to this, because I want at least two more movies where Anthony Wong and Michael Wong chill with a myriad of pimps, prostitutes, thugs and mob bosses.

  • The Chinese Feast

    The Chinese Feast

    Feel-good food porn directed by Tsui Hark, The Chinese Feast solidifies for me that the man really is one of the most versatile directors coming out of Hong Kong. The movie celebrates Chinese cuisine in all its wonderful and bizarre glory, and while it might get a bit too silly at times, it also is extremely sweet. Leslie Cheung and Anita Yuen are beyond charming.

    A horror-actioner with such an awesome premise. There isn't much going on plot-wise, but Scarecrows is atmospheric, has great mask work (so creepy) and has pretty brutal gore to boot.

    Great times watching this underrated slasher with Michelle.

    Don't Go in the Woods pales in comparison to Bryan's what-the-fuck trashterpiece, Lady Street Fighter, but it delivers more than enough slasher thrills to keep you entertained.

    This is a good (bad) movie to tear down with friends, maybe while enjoying a couple of drinks. Michelle and I were both sober and we still had an excellent time watching it.
