  • Proxy 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Aug, 2014 4

    Holy crap. This is one of the best films I've seen in a while, possibly because I had such low expectations.

    There are a crazy amount of twists and turns in this I wasn't expecting, and quite a few I saw coming and adored to watch them play out. I don't want to give too much away, but this is definitely a rollercoaster ride of a film.

  • The Den 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 16 Aug, 2014

    The creepy atmosphere of this film really got to me. There was a very voyeuristic feel and we're experiencing this the same way as the lead does in most scenes - through a screen. The modern twist on your typical psycho-slasher made it fresh.

    The Den is pretty dependent on jump scares which I view as negative, but there was still enough here to keep me interested. This is one of the best horror films I've seen this year.

  • 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 2017

    ★★★★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.
