    Hollywood’s hardest R, in terms of graphic violence, in a minute...maybe even ever...

    I was shook to find 70s/80s Italian horror level gore in this big budget contemporary exploitation flick. Seriously, this is some of the best and most gruesomely fun explicit violence I’ve seen in a long, long time. The prosthetics shine bright, bringing plenty of grade A body horror and genuinely creative mutation ideas. The only weak point in the effects department is ocassional CGI blood when characters…

    An identity crisis film that I believe both Lynch and Cronenberg would be proud of...this is basicallly the progressive version of both them.

    I am eternally grateful that David Gordon Green didn’t get to put his basic ass hands on this masterpiece...

    This is definitely one of the greatest remakes of all time, although, it is certainly an actual reimagining. It has next to nothing in common with the original besides character names and being about a coven of witches at a prestigious dance school. 

    Even beyond that though, while the original is the most beautiful looking horror movie, this becomes one of…
