    Zombeavers 2014

    ★★★ Watched 11 Dec, 2014

    I loved this for the practical effects used for the Beavers, the nudity and the gore, but this lost an entire star for the most gratuitous killing of a dog I have seen in years, and another entire star for the biggest douchebag guys I have seen in years. Seriously, I would have liked the movie more if it had just been the 3 female leads for the entire film.

    Stitches 2012

    ★★★ Watched 26 Sep, 2014

    Didn't know until it started that this was an Irish production. So a fair bit of warning, the accents are a little thick making some of the dialogue slightly difficult to understand, and also a little of the humor doesn't come across effectively, but man I enjoyed this. Some inspired kills, with some great practical effects. Stitches himself is pretty hilarious as well.

    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.

    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.
