  • Stephen King's World of Horror

    Stephen King's World of Horror 1986

    ★★★ Rewatched 19 Jul, 2016

    I picked this VHS up out of a bin a K-Mart in the late 1980's and many of the clips on it were my first exposures to films I would later love. My first glimpse of films like SOCIETY, PHENOMENA, SUSPIRIA, RE-ANIMATOR, EVIL DEAD II, HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD, BAD TASTE all came from this series. The one thing I've never understood is that this has a release date of 1986 yet many of the films covered are from 1988-89.

  • The Kyoto Connection

    The Kyoto Connection 1973

    ★★★ Watched 14 Jul, 2016

    I watched this via a non-subtitled Swedish release DVD I picked up 7 years back but the story was pretty easy to follow; Christina arrives in Japan, is abducted by a dorky Japanese man at the airport and taken back to his place where she is raped, eventually Stockholm syndrome kicks in and she falls for said dorky guy. All this is presented with a unique comedic tone. Nicely shot film and Lindberg is still one of the most beautiful women to walk the earth.

  • Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday

    Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday 1993

    ★★ Rewatched 13 Aug, 2013 1

    Well today marks the 20th anniversary of Jason goes to Hell's theactrical opening so I decided to kick back and pretend I was back in that old 2 screen theater I first saw the film in 20 years ago. Easily the worst of the Friday films IMO. This film is bad in only that way that an early 90's horror sequel can be; Desperate, half baked ideas trying to inject something new into an old franchise by adding silly over…

  • Psycho

    Psycho 1998

    ★★ Watched 05 Mar, 2016

    Another film I haven't watched since it opened back in '98. Hasn't gotten any better with age. Vaughn is still poorly miscast as Norman Bates and the Nine Inch Nails style footage inserted during Arbogast's death scene is just awkward and out of place.
