  • Messiah of Evil

    Messiah of Evil 1973

    ★★★½ Rewatched

    The squares are out to eat the weirdos in this oddball Lovecraftian tale from the same folks who brought you the Howard the Duck movie. The residents of a small California town inexorably transform into a pack of ravenous ghouls while waiting for the return of a 'dark stranger' from the ocean. Mostly an atmospheric horror film in the vein of Carnival of Souls but two amazing murder set pieces - one in a supermarket and the other in a cinema - add a bit of exploitation flair. Highly recommended for fans of the weird.

    Edge of Tomorrow 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Mar, 2015

    I agree. That was a pretty great movie. Why didn't anyone go see it? As with any good Tom Cruise movie, it successfully made me forget that it was a Tom Cruise movie.

    The Boxer's Omen 1983

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Sep, 2014

    Raimi, Jodorowsky, and Lynch in the Shaw Brothers' blender with black magic and kung fu. Inexplicably weird, it must be seen to be believed. Simultaneously horrendous and amazing. It will definitely break your brain a little bit.

  • Cub

    Cub 2014

    ★★★ Watched 08 Sep, 2014

    This Belgian horror film sets up some good backwoods dread and even the possibility of a really interesting team-up when a group of cub scouts find themselves in danger while on a camping trip. Ultimately, however, there are just too many “wait, why the hell did that just happen?” moments. Another film with an oddly unsatisfying ending.
