    Anatomy of a Love Seen

    I've no idea why I put this on my watchlist and I really wish I hadn't.

    Shocker

    ★★★

    Film #14 of Hooptober 2017

    Wes Craven takes us on a crazy ride with serial killer Pinker. Film is too long and plot doesn't stand up to much scrutiny, but it is a hell of a fun journey

    Film #13 of Hooptober 2017

    Solid thriller from Raimi with a nod to the supernatural.

    Vincent Price at his crazy best in this gorgeous Gothic Horror.

    ★★

    Film #11 of Hooptober 2017

    What a disappointment, I watched this on the same day as [REC]² and was hoping for more of the tense claustrophobic horror of the first two films and this couldn't have been more different.

    Gone was the handheld, gone was the dark, gone was the tension, gone was the story. What we had instead was a bog standard zombie film that should have been titled Zombie Wedding Party. The gore was good and it was…

    [REC]²

    ★★★½

    Film #10 of Hooptober 2017

    Excellent continuation of the first REC, putting the handheld format to effective use, capturing the panic and fear in the building.

    ★★½

    Film #9 of Hooptober 2017

    Fun, but instantly forgettable slice of Stephen King. Horrible people having horrible things happen to them. What's not to like?

  • Prince of Darkness

    Prince of Darkness

    ★★★½

    Film #8 of Hooptober 2017

    The bugs and particularly the cockroaches in this classic Carpenter are going to give me nightmares for days.

  • Day of the Dead

    Day of the Dead

    ★★★½

    Film #7 of Hooptober 2017

    Dawn of the Dead will always be my favorite of the trilogy, but this comes a close second as the kill effects for a 1985 film are just amazing. And to top it off, the incarcerated zombie Bub is an absolute treat and deserves a series of films of his own.

  • Wolf Creek 2

    Wolf Creek 2

    ★★★

    Film #6 of Hooptober 2017

    A great quality slice of torture porn with some excellent gore and effects. Jarratt is so convincing as the crazed killer at the heart of the film and is a joy to watch.
