  • Episode 50 2011

    ★★½ Watched 14 Apr, 2014

    Mediocre ripoff movie blending Ghost Hunters and the Paranormal Activity franchise. Would have been better if it had stayed away from the more blatant effects, as the smaller stuff was actually effective.

  • Crossworlds 1997

    ★★½ Watched 14 Apr, 2014

    A neat idea that the budget couldn't fulfill.

  • Solomon Kane 2009

    ★★★ Watched 13 Apr, 2014

    A passable but mediocre effort, hampered by utterly predictable plot twists and a lack of anything interesting between fight scenes. The final monster was neat, although barely even a momentary distraction.

  • Rabid Dogs 1974

    ★★★½ Watched 06 May, 2012 2

    Not a great Bava film, but a good one. While sometimes crossing from dangerous into ludicrous, the film maintains tension and a sense of peril throughout. A few scenes create the cringing sympathy of later films like "Last House on the Left". I haven't seen the English language cut, but the Italian is impressive for its ability to make you believe that you've witnessed offscreen horrors.

    Not a perfect movie, but one that feels important in founding the survival genre of horror.
