  • Grey Gardens

    Grey Gardens 1975

    ★★★½ Watched 30 Jan, 2016

    Rating: 72/100
    Verdict: Good

    Grey Gardens takes the viewer on an uncomfortable but fascinating experience through the isolated lives of two impoverished women, living in a house mostly reclaimed by nature, in the 70s. The strangest thing about this film is that despite the strange environment these women live in, their mother-daughter relationship is - for the most part - understandable and sympathetic.

    For the most part.

    It's a strange, unorthodox ride, but it's highly captivating.

This movie is a glorious combination of everything that there is to be loved about horror movies, and even more. It is an exceptional film, and the best horror movie I've ever seen.

    Halloween 1978

    ★★★★★ Watched 31 Oct, 2015

    Rating: 100/100
    Verdict: Masterful

    From the opening tracking sequence, Halloween birthed the modern slasher film. Aped by countless others but never fully matched in quality, impact and tension, it's one of the greatest slasher films of all time, if not THE greatest. Whereas other iconic slasher films feature a sense of fun and camp, such as the Friday the 13th sex-crazed lovably idiotic teenagers, and the Nightmare on Elm Street Freddy Kreuger one-liners, Halloween is almost completely devoid of this,…
