  • Mutant Girls Squad 2010

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Apr, 2014

    First off, I knew I would like this instantly. As soon as I saw Nishimura and Iguchi were directors, I was sold. I tend to like Nishimura's work more than Iguchi, but if you blend them together, it's gory, comedic gold.

    This is very similar to other works of theirs where comedy prevails over everything. The humor is very childlike, but the incredible gore effects really steps it up for me. They blend CGI and practical effects in this film…

  • The Last Days on Mars 2013

    ★★½ Watched 16 Apr, 2014

    The Last Days on Mars has some natural suspense à la Alien, Event Horizon and any other horror film that takes place with astronauts in space. I couldn't find anything new happening in this film, but it's a rather refined take on the same story.

  • Deadgirl 2008

    ★★★★ Rewatched 24 Jul, 2012 4

    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.

  • The Sentinel 1977

    ★★★★½ Watched 21 Jul, 2012 6

    A great little gem of a film. I hadn't heard of it before until it was recommended to me. I am not a fan of 70's horror/gore due to terrible effects and acting, but this really worked! The gore was frightening and the characters were engaging. I really enjoyed this flick.
