    Murder Party 2007

    ★★★ Watched 27 Feb, 2016

    Another low budget horror, just hunted it down because it's directed by the same guy who did Blue Ruin/Green Room. For a first effort it's really pretty good, it basically is a pisstake of the arty farty culture. A collective of young artists tempt one random guy into a building with a fancy invitation, their aim is to propose the most artfully valid murder method in order to be awarded $100,000 in funding for their project - murder, death, drugs, comedy, mayhem ensues. Reminded me of Sam Raimi's early films and an easy recommendation to horror fans looking for something different.

  • Tangerine

    Tangerine 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 29 Feb, 2016

    A low-budget indie flick starring real transgender (ex)prostitutes, sort of like a life in the day as Sin Dee gets out of jail on Christmas eve, finds out her boyfriend/pimp has been cheating on her and then spends the rest of the day doing things that could easily get her sent back to jail.

    It's practically a historical document about gigantic idiots. These people have a stupid, paper-thin plot for a film & decide to put $17 million, their gone-askew hippy minds & utterly stoned bodies on the line to prove that man & beasts with giant fucking teeth can co-exist. Which they can't. As this film proves.

    Reading the trivia on IMDb is like visiting, the amount of people mauled & bitten on this film is frightening. The fact that the driving force behind it was…

    Jaws 1975

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 21 Feb, 2013

    I watched this ON A BOAT! The Tall Ship in Glasgow, to be precise. In the hull, where it was cold and damp & we had uncomfortable chairs, I was sat right at the front with a crick in my neck & the film jammed at "we're gonna need a bigger boat" - but I didn't care! Jaws is my favourite movie of all time, this was my favourite experience on a boat ever.
