    Color Out of Space

    ★★★★

    Full disclosure... Director Richard Stanley has been a friend of mine for many years, but if a movie was bad from someone I knew, I'm not gonna lie about it. COLOR OUT OF SPACE was a hell of a lot of fun. It does take about 40% of the movie's running time to kick into crazy but, when it does, it gets really crazy... like Alien-Thing-Alpaca-Nicholas Cage-Nutso crazy.

    ★★★½

    Entertaining, funny, horrific and engaging black comedy involving a cast of three. A group of friends head out on a yacht, only to soon find themselves stranded in the middle of the ocean.

In another universe, I imagine this film as something John Hughes would've made, if he decided to tackle a horror movie.

An almost perfectly filmed "giallo", OPERA is considered by many to be the "bridge" of Argento's career... the point in which his films have distinctly "gone down hill" and his career hasn't quite recovered. I admit to liking almost everything he has filmed, really, including THE STENDHAL SYNDROME which came after this, but OPERA is a masterwork.

    The haunting camera movements, cinematography, extreme flashes of gore and…
