    ★★ Watched 04 Apr, 2014 1

    No wonder this one hasn't had an official dvd or bluray release. Definitely falling under the definition of a giallo, but nothing visually engaging about it to differentiate it from far superior films like Blood And Black Lace, etc. It feels like an episode of a police procedural show like CSI only with dollops of uninspiring nudity to keep male viewers from nodding off, and very little gore for it being a Italian movie from that era where every film…

  • ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2 2011

    ★★★★½ Watched 02 Apr, 2014

    Overall a MUCH improved film over the fist one, this is far less quirky and surreal and far more realistic and darkly serious. At first I was thrilled to see The Girl strip down for a shower scene until I realized they had recast Bobbi Sue Luther with a new girl.

    ★★★★ 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.

  • Christine 1983

    ★★★½ Rewatched 25 Apr, 2012

    Another great John Carpenter movie that failed in the box office when first released, and today is looked at with oohs and aahs. Maybe not to the extant of The Thing (I still can't believe that was a flop in theaters. It just doesn't seem possible). Amazing practical effects that today would all be done in CGI, a great soundtrack that even adds character to the main "monster", and as always great direction and score by Carpenter. Also, if you are a car enthusiast, plenty of cringeworthy moments of destruction of the 2 dozen Plymouth Fury's used in the production.
