  • Blood Creek

    Blood Creek 2009

    Watched 28 Jul, 2015

    Michael Fassbender plays an immortal Nazi who has the ability to create zombie horses in order to kill Henry Cavill (Superman).

    It's starts off ridiculous in a good way, taking itself entirely too seriously and delivering completely over the top gore and a laughable, nearly incomprehensible plot. Unfortunately, the novelty wears off after the second act and the rest is just a slog.

    I'm tempted to give this a higher score though, because, come on, zombie horses and Michael Fassbender as a slasher?

    The Gate 1987

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Jul, 2015

    A kid version of Stephen Dorff finds a geode (remember geodes?!) that, after cracking it open, releases demons onto his palatial suburban property. His way of destroying them? The words of a satanic heavy metal record played backwards.

    This movie couldn't be more '80s if it tried and I loved every minute.

    Also, what kind of father gives their kid that record??

    If your vagina is gushing blood and maggots, your eyes are bleeding, your fingernails are falling off, and your hair is coming out in clumps you'd probably go to the hospital right? Apparently not if you're a self-centered twenty-something. In that case, you go to work, then try to win…

    The Raid 2 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 21 Jan, 2014

    When Gareth Evans’ The Raid was first unleashed into the world in 2011, I stated that it was the best action film to be released in decades and one of the best ever made. Now, just two years later we have The Raid 2, a movie that had some seemingly insurmountable shoes to fill. Evans apparently knew he had to up the ante, because everything in this sequel is bigger and better. While the first entry was isolated and pure…
