  • The Descent 2005

    ★★★★ Todd Gaines Watched by Todd Gaines 19 Oct, 2014 37

    Neil Marshall's intoxicating claustrophobic horrific tale of a group of friends who pick the wrong caves to explore. White water fun. A wreck of a car wreck. Hospital scenes are usually sad. Girls enjoy beer too. Silly pajamas. Sarah's life is a "Hell on Earth" type of life with all the shit that happens to her at the beginning of the film. It's kinda ironic how her "own personal Hell" turns into so much more as the descent into the…

    “Anyone who spends a significant amount of time with me finds me disagreeable.”

    Gluttony

    He has taken on too much. Det. David Mills (Brad Pitt), deliberately uprooting his wife, Tracy (Gwyneth Paltrow), from upstate and dragging her to this lurid hellhole, all out of a naïve desire to save the world. So much ambition, he nearly chokes on it. So much chatter, he sucks all the air from the room.

    Det. William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) long ago…

  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 2012

    Todd Gaines Watched by Todd Gaines 18 Oct, 2014 23

    Honest Abe killing vamps with a big ole' axe. Whiplash. Awful teeth. Mommy dearest. George Washington smoked and grew strong ganja according to Dazed and Confused and chopped down a cherry tree. Abe Lincoln stalked and killed vamps. It all makes sense to me. Dead tits. Missing eyeball. I think the vamps are on steroids. Piss pot. Vampire sunscreen? Honest Abe wasn't born with a beard? Dominic Cooper plays a hilarious scene stealing bootleg Mr. Miyagi. Benjamin Walker the actor…

    “Every kid in Haddonfield thinks this place is haunted.” “They may be right.”

    I hate root beer floats. I know everyone else seems to delight in them as delicious sweet treat, but for me, even the smell of root beer is nauseating, like some ill conceived cleaning solution gone to seed. It is singularly gross.

    I also do not much like whiskey. I like plenty of other liquors—gin, tequila, vodka—and I know whiskey is a thing that…

    “What should we call this game?” “I don’t know.”

    As Tolstoy observed, each happy family is alike, while each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. Which is simply another way of saying that all families are different, since any group of people forcibly assembled is bound to be visited by some unhappiness. Power dynamics, personality conflict, even random chance bring with them discord and disharmony. How to weather the storm—that is the question.

    It’s a…

  • Edward Scissorhands 1990

    ★★★★ Naughty Watched by Naughty 21 Oct, 2014 9

    A modern day FRANKENSTEINish flick by Tim Burton featuring one of my favorite actors Johnny Depp! Normally I can't stomach romance films but when you season it with a smidgeon of goth here and a pinch of fantasy there and a dash of sci-fi horror there it's a lot easier to swallow!

    A real visual feast for the eyes! Breast milk for the melancholy!

  • Rosemary's Baby 1968

    ★★★★½ CinemaClown Watched by CinemaClown 20 Oct, 2014 19

    Roman Polanski's first American feature is a masterwork of outstanding direction, polished screenplay & stellar performances that may lean towards the supernatural in small doses but what truly makes it an enduring masterpiece of its genre is the seamless manner in which it employs the psychological elements of horror filmmaking into its premise by creating a chilling sense of dread, paranoia & suspense over the course of its runtime.

    Based on the novel of the same name, the story of Rosemary's Baby

  • Under the Skin 2013

    ★★★★ Travis Lytle Watched by Travis Lytle 16 Oct, 2014 7

    Somewhere between arty experiment, naturalistic travelogue, morass of allegories, and fetishistic genre bender sits Jonathan Glazer's "Under the Skin." Alternately mesmerizing and repellant, rewarding and dull, the film requires patience and open mind. As an experience, it may crash with a resounding thud or soar with scintillating qualities.

    As polarizing as it may be, Glazer's film is audacious piece of work. A methodical portrait of some otherworldy thing experiencing life and humanity in Scotland, the film is light on dialogue…

  • Birdman 2014

    Brilliant. Absolutely Fucking Brilliant.

    Gosh Dammit, Michael Keaton.

    The entire cast wow...

    THE CAMERAWORK, THE EFFING CAMERAWORK!!!

    This is just too great to put into words.

  • Misery 1990

    ★★★★★ Naughty Watched by Naughty 19 Oct, 2014 11

    Placing two phenomenal actors (Kathy Bates and James Caan) at the helm of this psychological thriller pretty much guarantee's the success of the film!

    I went in with high expectations and I was absolutely blown out of the water by their jaw dropping, earth shattering performances! Don't ya just love it when a film exceeds all of your expectations! This is has become my all time Favorite Stephen King film!

    Kathy Bates deserved her Oscar for her role as Annie…

  • Martyrs 2008

    ★★★★ CinemaClown Watched by CinemaClown 17 Oct, 2014 14

    There are movies that can be termed as violent, shocking, disturbing, appalling, unsettling, depressing or disgusting... but there is only one Martyrs. Proudly presented by the New French Extremity Movement, notable for films like High Tension, Inside & Irreversible, Martyrs sets an incredibly high bar for ensuing films of its genre and is arguably the most extreme & violent film ever made.

    Beginning with a prologue that shows a young girl named Lucy escaping after a horrifying experience of abduction & prolonged torture,…

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★★ Gustav Watched by Gustav 12 Oct, 2014 33

    Gone Girl is an exceedingly maniacal game of manipulation on two fronts: both wrapped within the chilling narrative as a dastardly puzzle revealing the fake personas and fantasies that people box themselves into, along with aesthetically, as director David Fincher is able to play his audience as evilly and playfully as anyone can. Fincher, and writer Gillian Flynn, peel back the layers of deception to unveil more deception, and at its heart, a challenging, mustered-shaded deconstruction of modern married life…

  • Only Lovers Left Alive 2013

    ★★★★★ Hollie Horror Watched by Hollie Horror 18 Oct, 2014 21

    The wealth of knowledge vampires must amass after thousands of years is fully realized in Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive. Even though most vampire films have explored the longevity of the immortal, we very rarely see them reminisce about Nikola Tesla, the Spanish inquisition or Charlie Feathers' music. They adapt, survive, evolve, dance, read, make music, and most importantly - they love.

    Adam is a wistful poet, secluded in his decrepit house in Detroit where he spends most of…

  • Jaws 1975

    ★★★★★ Travis Lytle Rewatched by Travis Lytle 21 Oct, 2014 13

    Classic, iconic, and ageless, "Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" is one of the greatest horror films or, rather, greatest films ever created. Though its praise may sound hyperbolic, the film is worthy of any and all of the acclaim heaped upon it. A combination of robust storytelling, richly visualized filmmaking, palpable tension, and luck, "Jaws" is more than a cinematic experience; it is a cinematic event.

    At its core, "Jaws" boasts a simple story: the island community of Amity falls under siege…

  • The Town that Dreaded Sundown 2014

    ★★★ Todd Gaines Watched by Todd Gaines 17 Oct, 2014 15

    The Phantom is back haunting the streets of Texarkana in this reboot of the 70's iconic slasher classic. Drive-in fun. Wooderson's nephew. Peeper creeper. The Phantom speaks, carries a gun, and that makes a creepy deadly combo. If you're wondering if this is a straight up remake, the answer is no. I must applaud director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon for the cleverness of how he incorporated the original into the reboot. I think fans of the original will get a big kick…

  • 28 Days Later... 2002

    ★★★½ CinemaClown Watched by CinemaClown 18 Oct, 2014 11

    Signifying the dawn of a new era of post-apocalyptic horror, Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later... is the biggest leap zombie horror has taken ever since George A. Romero established the sub-genre in 1968 with Night of the Living Dead. The film discards the now outdated concept of reanimated corpses & replaces it with a contemporary idea of a viral epidemic, thus changing the supernatural phenomenon into a psychological one.

    The movie opens with a prologue that teases with the origin of…

    Part Four of Rolling Fog, Creepy Passageways, Murderers Lurking In The Dark: My Own Halloween Challenge

    A delightful, demented, atmospheric, and wonderfully conceived cult classic; Trick 'r Treat is a yearly Halloween tradition with me, and every viewing brings new, rich and joyful surprises. And with the leaves rolling about, the wind picking up speed, and the cold winter chill making itself known; I figured it was time to sit back and enjoy one of my favorite horror films.
