    Suitable Flesh

    ★★★

    A love letter to both Stuart Gordon and H.P. Lovecraft, a fun and gory neo-exploitation work reminiscent of good old video nasties, psychological horror and demonic possessions. Heather Graham (Twin Peaks, Scream 2 et al.) and scream queen Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, From Beyond, Castle Freak) are fantastic in this, the practical splatter FX are great and the mystical atmosphere is accompanied with cheesy sex scenes: Weird and a bit silly at times, but overall very enjoyable.

    In the evening he's heading to the next bar nearby, where he keeps on drinking and where he's trading some insults with barkeep Eddy (played by Sly's younger…

    Bliss

    ★★★½

    Finally got myself vaccinated. It got me a fever for two nights. All by myself, bored, the artist in me wanting to create, but beeing too exhausted, my body wanting to sleep, but couldn't --- so I rolled myself a spliff and fired up this stroboscopic mofo of a f*cking hell ride:

    "Bliss" is a psychedelic, drug induced, bloody gore trip into madness, with colorful, flashing arthouse imagery somewhere between Gaspar Noé, young Abel Ferarra and classy Dario Argento, screaming…
