    Asylum 2013

    Hold up. Maybe I spoke too soon. *This* might be the worst AfterDark movie I've seen. Such a frustrating movie. It’s like a real movie with another movie layered on MST3K-style for who in the fuck knows why. Initially thought I was watching the director’s commentary then realized “no, that’s the intent of the movie” and yet there seems to be a real movie that was filmed they are commenting on. Confusing as this sounds it’s a very stupid way to present this in what looks like a halfway decent B-movie.

  • The Sorcerers

    The Sorcerers 1967

    ★★★ Watched 27 Oct, 2016

    One of Boris Karloff’s final films in which he and his wife control the mind of a younger man and lead him on a path of killing. Really dig this premise but it could stand a refresh.

    Jodorowsky's Dune 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 21 Sep, 2013

    My new favorite film of Fantastic Fest. Essential viewing not just for Jodo fans but anyone who loves art, music and/or film. If you create, you must see this this.

  • The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires

    The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires 1974

    ★★★ Watched 03 Jun, 2013 4

    I get the charm and novelty of this Hammer/Shaw mash-up but I wouldn’t classify this as a better representation from either studio. However, together they’ve found a unique balance. In essence 1+1=3 in this case. The fighting scenes aren’t great and the Hammer elements only serve to drive the plot. Neither executed very well but combined it becomes an entertaining watch. Fun to see Peter Cushing so active in fighting the vampires. Plenty of replay value.
