  • The Final Girls

    The Final Girls 2015

    ★★★ Watched 11 Oct, 2015

    Fuck, the dialogue is so corny in this. I realize this is an 80's slasher spoof, but specifically the dialogue between the main character and her 'mother' was so unoriginal when they had some serious potential to go somewhere.

    Also I have a beef with the CGI (big surprise, right?). The immediate CGI in the opening looks TERRIBLE and later on when they're in the film, couldn't they / shouldn't they be using practical effects? Not only would it look…

  • The Borderlands

    The Borderlands 2013

    ★★★ Watched 07 Oct, 2015

    This had a pretty dull beginning, but picked up about an hour in. I was thoroughly creeped out toward the last twenty minutes, but I felt like there wasn't enough of a payoff, especially after hearing such rave reviews.

    The ending effects made my jaw drop, and that's a difficult feat when you watch as much horror as I do.

  • Deadgirl

    Deadgirl 2008

    ★★★★ Rewatched 24 Jul, 2012 6

    I've seen this film about four times, and according to most people, that's 3 1/2 times too many.

    I know why I really enjoy this film and why most others don't as well. The premise is original and the characters were great. Though Shiloh is not the best actor, Noah stole the show and plays an engaging anti-villan.

    I assume most of the audience can't get past that these guys are using a dangerous, insane naked chick for sex. BUT if you can stomach that, the way they display carnal urges is interesting, in my opinion.

    A nice, new rape-revenge movie of the new age.
