    Suspiria

    ★★★★½

    Suspiria continues to be a fever dream that I have yet to wake up from...

    The dazzling lighting, mesmerizing Goblin theme mixed with the euphoric aesthetic left me utterly entranced   4.5/5

  • Zombie Flesh Eaters

    Zombie Flesh Eaters

    ★★★★★

    Lucio Fulci’s tropical undead nightmare Zombie Flesh Eaters (Zombi 2) stands up tall next to the likes of Romero’s “of the Dead” films as being the absolute pinnacles of the genre.

    The calming sun-drenched Caribbean island aesthetic is perfectly contrasted by the phenomenally terrifying practical effects by Giannetto De Rossi. The vibrant colours of the island landscapes along with the tranquil blue ocean is juxtaposed against disgusting maggot riddled corpses coming to gouge your eyes out and tear your throat…

    Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    ★★★★★

    It isn’t very often that a movie sequel is able to live up to the original. So often sequels try to recapture the magic of a past film, just to fail miserably and make an embarrassment out of their respected franchises. (Surely this didn’t happen to The Terminator franchise right? -_- )

    So when a sequel comes along that not only lives up, but surpasses and improves upon a wildly successful film that was already beloved so greatly, it’s comes…

  • River's Edge

    River's Edge

    ★★★★

    In spite of being a vastly overlooked teen crime drama from the late 80’s, River’s Edge boasts a star studded cast that give extremely strong performances which results in some wonderfully rich characters that really amplify the strong narrative.

    I went in with relatively no expectations, knowing nothing more than the plot synopsis and that a youthful Keanu Reeves and Crispin Glover are featured as leads. 

    Post viewing I was absolutely blown away with what I’d just watched. To start…

  • Brawl in Cell Block 99

    Brawl in Cell Block 99

    ★★★★½

    S. Craig Zahler’s sophomore feature film Brawl in Cellblock 99 is a gritty and gruesome throwback to classic grindhouse cinema. 

    From the moment Vince Vaughn’s character Bradley obliterates his girlfriends car with his bare hands I was completely sold on his physical prowess. Bradley is a fucking monster, dispatching guards and inmates with hyper violent kills like that of a slasher villain in a horror movie. Arm snapping, head crushing, face smearing, it’s a smorgasbord of people getting decimated.

    Despite…

  • Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    ★★★★½

    Aguirre, the Wrath of God is an enthralling adventure that follows a group of Spaniards in 1560 as they tromp through the Amazon in search for the lost city of El Dorado.

    With a skeleton production crew of only 8 people, no stuntmen, and a minuscule budget of $340,000, it’s absolutely remarkable watching what Werner Herzog was able to create. The amount of sheer dedication it must’ve taken to complete this film is visible in every shot.

    There is a…
