I had such a good time visiting! Red Rock West, with its spin on a Blood Simple plot, unravels itself wonderfully. Bouncing to and fro the town limits with genuine suspense. A lovely score - fit to be an instrumental in some Chris Isaak album lost in time - with classic country tunes playing on the radio (even Dwight Yoakam shows up in a fun little cameo), all drenched in beautiful reds and blues (shame Reshovsky…
Nothing's fully thought out, and it has that first draft stank. Sarah Wayne Callies and Nic Cage deliver, but their commitment seems out of place in this bargain bin La Llorona flick.

As the locomotive plot nicely chugged along, though, it did eventually win me over. As far as action-horror goes, I'd wager it's about as enjoyable as Rec 2, maybe even more.…
Listen here, Sad Saps!
If you haven't seen Demons, and you're sittin' home alone wallowing in your misery like me, (virtually) grab some friends, or relatives, neighbours, even random strangers on the interwebs, and put this movie on!
I guarantee it positively will be a blast.
That's what I should've done... Learn from my mistakes!
Lamberto Bava's Demons is a party movie if I've ever seen one. Once it gets going, as the blood begins to flow, the fun comes…
