    The Green Inferno 2013

    ★★ Watched 17 Aug, 2016

    Serious most of the time but completely out of nowhere "humor" and a slow start made me roll my eyes frequently.
    *edit* no I feel guilty and now lowering my star count. Fuck this movie. I feel so letdown. Don't even want to waste time saying why. Just....ugghhh

  • The Final Girls

    The Final Girls 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Aug, 2016

    Not sure if I agree with the PG-13 rating on this. I can understand that bringing it to that level of safeness insured that it found the audience that it was trying to appeal to with it's story, and that the story didn't get shoved aside and ignored amidst the tits and gore that should have been more prevalent in the type of movie they were in, but it would have been fun to have a few more extreme elements…

    It Follows 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Sep, 2015

    A great original, modern horror movie that manages to nail metaphor and emotional social commentary while not being too intellectual. While taking place in modern day, the INCREDIBLE synth score and the suburban teenager plot made it feel like a lost Carpenter or Craven film from the '80's. Best blind purchase I have made in a long time.

    Maskerade 2010

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Apr, 2012 2

    What I assumed was going to be a dime a dozen by the numbers slasher flick ended up being quite a surprise. Very competently shot, with likeable characters, great gore, and very very lovely ladies that don't mind getting naked in order to fulfill all the things a slasher flick needs. also near the ends a couple nice homages to Friday The 13th films. Felt like I was watching an 80's era flick, which is exactly what this sub-genre should feel like. It's currently on Netflix streaming in glorious HD in case you don't feel like picking up the bluray.
