  • Insidious: Chapter 2 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 26 Aug, 2014

    Losing a bit of steam by not being as earth shatteringly unique as I thought the first one was, this entry also failed to give me night terrors for a week. Having said that, this was still a fun ride, it just came across a little bit of more of the same

  • The Laughing Dead 1989

    ★★ Watched 16 Aug, 2014

    Outrageously bad acting mixed with about a dozen or so truly annoying characters makes for an absolutely unendurable first hour. Once the supernatural hokum starts up it's barely saved by some decent kills, and gore effects.

  • 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.
