    Dreams in the Witch House

    ★★½

    Sometimes I feel like a fraud when it comes to Stuart Gordon. I really like him but I don't love him - I even go so far that I prefer Brian Yuzna who took over the Re-Animator franchise. Gordon got so many cool ideas, I love his love for HP Lovecraft and how he tweaks them...

    ...but no matter how bizarre the ideas are I can't help like feeling like I am watching a play instead of a movie when…

  • Jenifer

    Jenifer

    It is really a weird watch. The story got a lot of potential but Argento do something here that I am not sure he can handle... He rely on acting. Most of the scenes are staged for the actors but without a director being able to judge their performance and seemingly just checks if they hit their marks it never really pays off.

    There is a little of the old visual Argento here, it just comes off as a cheap…

  • Friday the 13th Part III

    Friday the 13th Part III

    ★★

    That it starts off by homaging The Last House on the Left without having a clue what that movie was about is just one of many tone deaf things here. Then it actually takes us there and make Jason a rapist. It serves no purpose and goes against everything Jason stands for and it is impressive that the writer managed to do that considering how Jason doesn't stand for much.

    This is the movie in the franchise that might be…

  • The Demons

    The Demons

    Well, The Devils it's not.

    I am so jealous of all the Franco-files out there. I just don't get it. I instantly get bored by everything in his films and I wish I had a Franco-file next to me, guiding me through this as if they were commenting on some ball kicking sport event.

    Everything Franco does I have seen others do better. It's all too random but there are other filmmakers who have done random better too. Watching a…

  • Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    Why can't HBO Max buy Sony's Spider-Man Universe and cancel it as a tax write off, just erase it from history? Or the other way around. Is both possible?

    I just hope they paid Michelle Williams enough money to bring back the dead.

  • The Boston Strangler

    The Boston Strangler

    ★★★★½

    I am probably misremembering this, but I like to think of this as my first favorite movie for adults. As a kid I watched a lot of movies for kids, of course, but I also had a sleep disorder so my parents early gave up on things like "bedtime" or what I watched on TV. So I watched a lot of movies broadcast on Swedish Television in the early 80's. Horror movies, thrillers, whatever. I watched anything. Back then you…

  • Madman

    Madman

    ★★★½

    I don't really have much to say about this. If you love any Friday the 13th-movie odds are that you will love this too. It is absolutely one of the best rip-off I've seen! It got that mood that only an early 80's slasher can have, the fun kills, that cozy feeling of staying up at night and watching something you shouldn't be watching with your hand deep in a bowl of popcorn. The only thing I don't really loved was the Madman himself. He feels like a "1st idea" that they settled with too early.

  • Bullet Train

    Bullet Train

    ★★★

    Fun, dumb, full of... dumb.

    It's basically Smoking Aces on a train and Smoking Aces can be a fun ride if you are in the mood. Brad Pitt is so good here, he really is a master at playing dumbasses. I keep thinking of some of the choices he make here and giggle to myself.



    Missed opportunity: I recognized the voice of the woman Brad Pitt is talking to through the movie but couldn't place it and started to hope that it would turn out to be Julia Roberts and that this is an unofficial sequel to The Mexican.

  • Prey

    Prey

    ★★★½

    There are some really great and suspenseful scenes and I really do like the plot so almost by default it is the second best Predator-movie. I especially liked how it take the piss out of the original by letting the captured woman be the badass this time. It didn't quite win me over though.

    The music is good but there is absolutely too much of it. Constant music kills the tension for me, if there is constant tension music it…

  • Hospital Massacre

    Hospital Massacre

    ★★★★

    Well, this certainly was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting a cheap hospital-slasher ripoff of Halloween II or even Visiting Hours - AND IT IS! - but it came out the same year as "H2 not O" and a year before Visiting Hours. It somehow manages to be the perfect "Best Of" slashers of the era but at the same time manage to crank it up as well.

    And I will definitely include it in my perfectly and not at…

  • Old

    Old

    "YOU ARE ALWAYS THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE, IT MAKES ME FEEL NOT SEEN!" is a subtle piece of dialogue in this. All the Oscar nominated actors in the world could save this.

    I want to remake it and name it Dumb. It got nothing to do with aging, it's just a bunch of idiots becoming dumber during 24 hours on a beach where they all just die from stupidity. But there is a M. Night Shyamalan-TWIST: It's all a setup done by fucking idiots!

    Nice cinematography though.

  • Don't Breathe 2

    Don't Breathe 2

    ★★

    I absolutely LOVE the first Don't Breathe, I gave it 5 full stars back when it came. It just nailed my favorite kind of horror with a simple rule to build tension off of and sticking to it. You make a sound = you dead. (Yeah, I liked A Quiet Place too, how did you know?!)

    Fede Álvarez direction was on point and didn't miss a beat, it just 100% worked for me. It was also fun because it turned…
