  • Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed

    Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed 1969

    ★★★ Watched 01 Apr, 2016

    Almost perfect for a hammer except for that out of nowhere rape scene that is never brought up after the fact.

  • Strangers on a Train

    Strangers on a Train 1951

    ★★★½ Watched 11 Dec, 2015

    Apparently I watched the British cut of the flick, still great but I don't have any frame of reference for what the difference is.

  • The Devil's Rock

    The Devil's Rock 2011

    ★★★ Watched 07 Sep, 2015

    Any movie that unifies Indiana Jones, Hellboy, and maybe Constantine is alright in my book.

  • Scream

    Scream 1996

    ★★★½ Added

    Scream is basically the Watchmen of horror movies.

    Its incredibly well made and it has lots of interesting things to say about its genre but it kind of ruined everything for a good ten years.

  • The Collection

    The Collection 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 16 Aug, 2013

    I have to assume the conventions of the action movie and the horror flick have been combined before but I cant remember ever watching one that used the tropes as effectively as The Collection did. This isn't to say that it didn't have its share of problems but the idea of a team of mercenaries raiding the secret lair of a slasher like Leather face or Michael Myers to hopefully save his latest victim is a good one.

    A thief…
