  • Toad Road 2013

    ★★½ Watched 06 Sep, 2014

    James and his friends spend their days looking for any possible means of intoxication in ever more inventive locations. Mushrooms are dropped in a cave system, beers are shotgunned on a roof, Vicks is blown into eyeballs in a seedy bedroom, and then once everyone is suitably wasted, James will start pulling their pants down and lighting their pubic hair on fire.

  • Screamtime 1983

    This film is atrocious, and my ranking represents a clear-eyed, objective view of this film's merits. My personal, subjective rating would be around a 4.
