  • Cry Wilderness 1987

    ★★★ Watched 13 Oct, 2014

    Aw Bigfoot, you're just misunderstood. Seriously, this movie. Earns an extra star for being so damn nutty. A tiger?! Fine. Love that Bigfoot is just creeping on everyone in total stalker mode. Given the time period I was waiting for the Six Million Dollar Man to come running out for a little mano a mano Sasquatch style.

  • The Roommate 2008

    ★★½ Watched 07 Oct, 2014

    12th movie in my 31 in 31 horror challenge. Another micro-budget DTV affair from Hisaaki Nagaoka who provides a bit of domestic supernatural thrills between two young women living together. Things get nutty when demonic possession enters their lives with murderous and cannibalistic intentions. Since the women have become smitten with each other how long will they cover up the killing? Takes a while to warm up but ends on a gruesomely nice note.

  • 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 1974

    ★★★ Watched 03 Jun, 2013 2

    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.
