    The Devil's Rejects

    ★★★½

    Happy Halloween everyone! Last night/this morning I sat down and watched The Devil's Rejects, the 2005 sequel to House of 1,000 Corpses (2003). With House, I thought it had it moments and a lot of cool elements, but overall was just a huge mess of a movie, feeling more like an hour and 1/2 music video than a horror film. With this one, director/writer Rob Zombie toned it back quite a bit, ditching the odd zooms and random abstract color…

    House of 1000 Corpses

    ★★½

    I... I really don't know what to say about this one. The production values are high here, it has a lot of funny moments, and the acting is all pretty good here, especially from Sid Haig as the wild Captain Spaulding.

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★½

While it is WAY too early to throw around "greatest sci-fi film" or "better than the original," I think it is safe to say this: Blade Runner 2049 is the best movie of the year so far. Also, once I've seen it a few more times and have had time to really let it marinate, this film almost certainly will deserve the "m" word: masterpiece. I can't remember the last time a movie got me thinking so much after I had seen it.

  • The Brides of Dracula

    The Brides of Dracula

    ★★★

    This one is pretty decent, but is DEFINITELY a letdown following Horror of Dracula. Christopher Lee isn't here, but David Peel does do a pretty good job as the main vampire Baron Meinster. Still, while Peel is good, Baron Meinster is forgettable and can't hold a candle to Lee's Dracula. It definitely brings the film down some (especially for a film with Dracula in the title).The major problem with the movie is that even with its short run time, it…
