  • Rosemary's Baby 2014

    ★★★ Watched 12 Oct, 2014

    This is just an updated retelling of the 1968 film. No huge changes. We spend a little more time with Rosemary's husband, so we get a better idea of how he's handling the whole selling-his-wife-out thing.

    Because I already know the story, it's difficult for me to judge the suspense of this remake, but I don't think they do a great job with it, and it's difficult to justify the three-hour running time.

    I think the Paris setting works nicely…

  • Cabin Fever 2002

    ★★½ Watched 10 Oct, 2014

    Cabin Fever is okay but not great. It has some funny moments and some good body horror, but the pacing seems off. Considering how often the characters come across other people, I didn't get the necessary feeling of isolation, either. I think this could've been great with a little tooling, but as is the idea is better than the execution.

    The Listerine scene really had me laughing.

  • The Thing 1982

    ★★★★★ Added

    This is one of my favorite films ever. It is the perfect blend of sci-fi and horror. The special effects are so well done; modern movies should watch The Thing and weep in shame.

    The characters, the paranoia, the sense of claustrophobic doom, it's all brilliantly done.

    I watched this movie when I was decently young, so it holds a special place in my heart as being one of the few films that ever managed to scare me.

  • Army of Darkness 1992

    ★★★★ Rewatched 20 Aug, 2013 4

    Just found my MGM Region 3 Director's Cut buried in a pile of DVDs. Groovy.

    The movie is 93 minutes long with some alternate takes and the original ending. It's awesome, though I do miss "Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun."

    Army of Darkness is a ridiculous, campy, over-the-top slapstick comedy in which the goofy Ash manages to make life a lot more difficult for everyone he meets. There really is nothing like a Bruce Campbell one-liner.
