  • Joe Versus the Volcano 1990

    ★★ Watched 02 Sep, 2014

    What a piece of crap. There are moments of joy with Ossie Davis, and some nice overt corporate angst in the beginning, but this is largely as aimless and leaden as Joe's life. Sure glad so many people died so this loser could pull his head out of his ass!

  • Stage Fright 2014

    ★★½ Watched 01 Sep, 2014

    Objectively, this is pretty average and probably missable. But "musical slasher with a kabuki version of 'Phantom of the Opera'" is not something I'm prepared to be objective about.

  • 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.

  • Dead in Tombstone 2013

    ★★ Watched 10 Aug, 2014

    Sometimes you just want to see Danny Trejo murder Anthony Michael Hall.
