    Blood of the Virgins 1974

    ★★ Watched 10 Feb, 2016

    For a better film of it's type, please seek out any of Paul Naschy's werewolf films. For a much better and more entertaining film by the same filmmaker, seek out The Curious Dr. Humpp. Did they seriously think that red tinted stock footage of seagulls was going to fool audiences into thinking they were seeing bats?

    We Are Still Here 2015

    ★★★ Watched 10 Feb, 2016

    I want to like this more than I did. The selling points are the original ideas (which tend to not be explained well enough by the end), the nicely done practical gore and designs for the ghosts. The acting however was just off enough to grate on my nerves a bit at times. EXCEPT for Monte Markham who is stellar every second he is talking. I wanted this to be the next House Of The Devil, but I think Ti West is better at the slow burn than this filmmaker.

    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.

    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.
