• Ramekin

    Ramekin

    ★★½

    I can’t say I love this, but I can’t say I hate it either. While it could have been better as a short film, it somehow works at full length. The audio is off, the acting is a little weak. But unlike the film Rubber (about a homicidal tire), Ramekin is more believable to me. AND I DON’T KNOW WHY! Quirky weird strange little film.

  • Shrew's Nest

    Shrew's Nest

    ★★★½

    A titch predictable but still a lot of crazy entertainment. Just enough blood/gore to be uncomfortable. I should have seen the twist ending coming but it still gave me a bit of a shock, as did the final scene.

  • The Beast of the Yellow Night

    The Beast of the Yellow Night

    ★★½

    I liked it better than I thought I would. I cared about Julia and Langdon. But the rest of it was pretty ridiculous, in both good and bad ways.

  • Dracula vs. Frankenstein

    Dracula vs. Frankenstein

    Disjointed, made no sense really. Poorly executed and acted. I feel bad that this was Chaney’s and Naish’s last film.

  • Late Phases

    Late Phases

    ★★★★

    This was surprisingly well done. Some good humor, some of the trope characters were annoying but I get it. The wolf special effects were pretty good, especially since they were all practical, not cgi, and I appreciate that a lot. Loved the Ambrose character. While his son was a bit wish washy, the ending was perfect.

  • The Oily Maniac

    The Oily Maniac

    ★★★

    I...uh....I have to say this is one of the most hilariously terrible films I’ve ever seen. In addition to the traditional, what has become stereotypical chop-socky elements of Asian action cinema, this has the cheesy costume/rubber suit element of Asian horror and sci-fi monster movies. Think Matango meets Jackie Chan. Fun watch.

  • The Rats Are Coming! The Werewolves Are Here!
  • Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

    Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

    ★★★★

    Very well done. Not over complicating plot or backstory, awkward and uncomfortable enough to impact but not turn away. The ending was absolute PERFECTION.

  • Singularity

    Singularity

    Jesus take the wheel - this was terrible. Disappointing, as I think John Cusak is a wonderful actor. But the material...it was like I,Robot and The Terminator had a sweaty one night stand and 9 months later this debacle popped out.

  • Zombie Flesh Eaters

    Zombie Flesh Eaters

    ★★★

    Much more interesting than Tenebre. Better kills, interesting story. Acting isn’t superb but its decent. Enjoyable. The scene in the conquistador cemetery (rather out of place exposition thrown in for foreshadowing...) was genuinely creepy.

  • Tenebre

    Tenebre

    Boring. Not sure why this is considered a classic. Story, characters were not interesting, slow pace. Not an artsy film but has artsy qualities which are OBVIOUS and unnecessary.

  • Late Night Trains

    Late Night Trains

    ★★

    While it has some of the brutality of Last House on the Left, it’s not as well done. Yes, the knife rape scene is extremely difficult to watch but the rest of it felt much weaker than Craven’s original. No real need to watch this if you’ve seen LHOTL.
