  • Dear White People 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 28 Oct, 2014

    The script is so strong that the race elements to the film are so complex and easy to be the first things talked about but there are stronger characters and development that make this a film about young people just as much as a film about race.

  • Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare 1991

    ★★★½ Watched 27 Oct, 2014

    There is a lot more Freddy and dreams in this film always having a dream like environment where reality is questionable. It lets Freddy be a comedic character with slightly more depth than just uttering the words "you bitch" which "Dream Child" used in a way that seemed like they were an adolescent trying out the word.

    Talalay has a vision and appreciation for the series allowing the film to come to a temporary close that doesn't feel like a studio gimmick but also feels like a film in itself focused on slightly more than killing kids.

  • Haunted-ween 1991

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Oct, 2014

    It could just be taking advantage of my love for Carpenter's "Halloween" with the same plot setup and score but the film has a real atmosphere to it with fun one note characters who are all led to "The Kill Room" which is a surprisingly perfect scene.

  • Seeding of a Ghost 1983

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Oct, 2014

    Perhaps the most feminist of rape revenge films. Most get off on the idea of women dropping their guard to become primal in their revenge. In "Seeding of a Ghost" it seems like not even magic can control the female protagonist as it uses demon children from the womb to destroy every male that took part in the rape and murder.
