Life is too short to be stingy with star ratings! I love all kinds of movies, but horror will always and forever be my first love.

    Very challenging but rewarding (for the right viewer) material. Low budget but high ambition sci-fi, the entire film is set in a grimy S&M hotel at an unspecified time in the future, revolving around three broken and desperate characters whose lives tragically intersect.

    Like Scooter McCrae’s previous film Shatter Dead, it’s got tons of individual style and chutzpah that overcomes most limits of its budget and SOV grunginess. It does a very good job of creating a singular and convincing…

    I had some big problems with True Detective: Night Country, but they were all writing and story related. I certainly had no problems with the excellent acting and cinematography.

    It's been a Cronenberg family kind of day, what can I say?

    How can a movie simultaneously be one of the most viscerally disturbing monster movies ever AND one of the most heartbreaking, tragic love stories of the 1980s? It's a rarity to find a movie that hits so squarely on all intended marks (scares, suspense, gross-out moments, special effects, emotional intensity...), but David Cronenberg's still-stunning remake of THE FLY (oh yeah, it's also one of the greatest remakes of…
