  • The Void

    The Void 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Sep, 2016

    My midnight movie on Day 1 at Fantastic Fest. Helluva goopy, gory horror thriller that is akin to putting THE THING in a hospital in the town from DEVIL'S RAIN. Love the creature design and practical FX. PRINCE OF DARKNESS also in its DNA. Enjoyed it.

  • Boyka: Undisputed IV

    Boyka: Undisputed IV 2017

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Sep, 2016

    Movie 2 on Day 1 at Fantastic Fest. Wow. Wow wow wow wow. Scott Adkins all day every day. Love when a movie is self aware and delivers precisely on its premise. Its as though 100 fighting movies were reference to make the ultimate fighting movie.

    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.
