    Movie #6 of The 2018 Cult Movie Challenge.
    Week 6: Video Nasties Week
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I really liked the first hour of the film, but then it took a turn. Even though the last hour had some good and memorable scenes it felt it didn't go anywhere.
    It never really spoke that much to me and I wasn't really invested in the characters.

    ★★★★★

    This is one of my all-time favorite movies.
    Everything just works: the acting, the chemistry, the settings, the intensity, the romance, the emotions.

    Perfect!

    Can't wait to watch "Before Midnight".

    ★★★½

    Movie #31 of Hoop-tober.

    So much fun!
    Alien slugs, an alcoholic bitter policeman, a nerd who has a crush on the popular girl, a flamethrower and zombies.

    I was entertained. A pleasant last entry for hoop-tober.
