    600th Review

    I love werewolf movies. It’s what got me into horror at such a young age with some of the goosebumps books. So you know I had to watch a werewolf movie for review 600. The Howling was the perfect choice.

    I loved everything about the film. How everything is explained and the events that lead Dee Wallace to this colony of werewolves. That was one of the main things that…

    2,000: After Life

    I had to watch a Kore-eda movie for my 2,000th as he influenced me a lot as a writer. This was the perfect choice as this movie brought Kore-eda International recognition. Before I continue my review I just want to say I’m very grateful for Letterboxd. This has slowly turned into a thought diary as I go through my own life and making connections with different films and people. It’s been very therapeutic for me as I…

    What a stacked fucking cast for a B movie. Yes this can happen at times, but let’s take a look here shall we. 
    William Shatner
    Ernest Borgnine
    Ida Lupino
    John Travolta 
    Tom Skerrit 
    And the founder the church of Satan Anton Szandor LaVey.
    How the fuck did this happen? wow
    The movie is pretty great too. I just really couldn’t get over this cast.

    Day 16: Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan(1989)

    My whole life I wondered how Jason gets to Manhattan? What business could Jason have in New York? I finally got my answer. 

    Jason Takes Manhattan was just ok for me. I didn’t hate it by any means. I laughed at a couple parts and how Jason actually gets to Manhattan. After watching Jason Lives and New Blood I definitely knew where the series would go from here. Although I was entertained here I left wanting more. It’s fun, but I wish we saw Jason in Manhattan more.

    What a treat. Jason is so great here. He’s gets some brutal kills here. The tree one really stuck with me. Could this be my favorite Jason from the entire franchise? I guess I gotta watch the rest of them and find out. 

    Jason Lives is a very enjoyable film. This is when Friday the 13th starts going toward the more comedic and goofy route of horror.…

    Audition: The Sober watch 

    The first time I watched Audition I was stoned out of my mind. I was so focused in on it that I didn’t look away at all. Watching it sober was a trip. 

    In my second watch my skin still crawled even knowing what was going to happen. It’s crazy to me that this is one of his more less violent film, but when the violence does happen it just hits you and the sounds you…
