    Cult Movie Challenge Week 3: Anime Week

    I remember trying to watch this movie about 2-3 times in the past, and I always hit a wall. Most if not every time, it was when I felt like the sex scenes were getting repetitive. Now I can say that the sex scenes are definitely repetitive.

    Cult Movie Challenge Week 21: Hong Kong Horror Week

    It's a pretty basic plot for a movie: news reporter following a story about a pale and unusual guy hit by a car at night, and it leads to…
