    I'll never forgive the Japanese!

    -Joseph Joestar

    I thought Gantz had prepared me. I thought Baki the Grappler had prepared me. I thought JoJo, including that alternate ending to Emergence involving Josuke, had prepared me. I thought that one time the Great Muta sprayed his signature green mist into the vagina of Yinling the Erotic Terrorist and then she hatched an egg with a 500-pound sumo wrestler in it had prepared me.

    Zombieland: Double Tap

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Yet another case of first watch whiplash, Re-Animator is fucking weird. It's really hard for me to call it a straight horror film, because really, it feels more like a drama that just so happens to have extreme horror elements. Herbert West and his injectable glow-in-the-dark Nickelodeon slime feels dropped into this school/family/medical drama where scenes of intense, soap-opera-like confrontations are juxtaposed against zombies, zombies, and more zombies. It's pretty weird but both parts are effective enough. Acting…
