    The Taking of Deborah Logan 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 28 Apr, 2015

    While a couple spots suffer from the typical tropes of found footage / documentary style films, It is very easy to dismiss them in this fresh, enthralling movie. The final 10 minutes of the movie have truly nightmarish imagery that I won't ruin here, but it literally had my mouth open in astonishment. It's currently on Netflix. Give it a try!

    If the terrorist action taken against the studio had never happened, this movie would have been the biggest bomb of the year.

    ★★★★ 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.

    ★★★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.
