    Backwoods 1987

    The last 1/3 of the film redeemed itself a little but my god these are some stupid characters. And I'm not talking about the demented hillbillies. Caught this obscurity on YouTube (I have never seen it in any video store I have ever been in) and I doubt this will ever get a disc release of any kind.

    ★★★★ Watched 09 Mar, 2016

    The last few minutes goes off the rails a little in tone and abruptly feels like a Tim Burton fantasy movie, but other than that, a very solid ghost movie with a strong character arc for the lead actress. Excellent ghost effects / design and sound use.

    ★★★★ 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.
