    Ring 0: Birthday 2000

    ★★★ Watched 25 Sep, 2016

    Yes, I know Paramount delayed the planned Halloween release of RINGS to next February. I don't care - I'm still continuing with MY watch of the entire RING and JU-ON franchises, because unlike Paramount, I'm not a quitter. Besides, I still have SADAKO VS KAYAKO to look forward to sometime this year, and that's really what this is all about, anyway.

    So...

    It Follows 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 03 Apr, 2015 2

    It's always tempting to look for the flaws in a movie with this much hype and positive buzz...but sometimes the movie is just really that good, folks. What is most impressive about It Follows is not just the incredible sense of tension it manages to build with such a simple (but creative) premise, but rather how modern and fresh it manages to feel even while indulging in the kind of "throw back" stylings that are really popular in the genre…
