    The Old Dark House

    I was sitting around reading Bram Stoker's Dracula, and I got the urge to watch a classic horror movie. Lo and behold I got on Shudder and found this was the only 1930s horror movie available to stream, so I figured why not. Well, I couldn't have been more pleased with my choice because I loved it. Exceptional performances all around; specifically Charles Laughton, Lilian Bond, and Eva Moore. James Whale carries over his expressionist style from Frankenstein into this dark tale of a dysfunctional family that harbour morbid secrets. There is also some superb stunt choreography and plenty of laughs to boot.

    Night Tide

    Thanks to a restoration led by Nicolas Winding Refn this film is now available to watch with a stunning transfer. It reminded me both of the films produced Val Lewton in the 40s and of Stanley Kubrick's Killer's Kiss (1955). Like Irena from Cat People (1942), Mora lives in fear of who or rather what she really believes she is. Complicating matters she falls in love with Johnny (Dennis Hopper) who despite all warnings about her, ignores his better judgement…

    A very welcome addition to the laptop web cam horror genre. I actually felt scared at moments during this!

    Charles Scorsese: It wasn't that your father didn't know how to make wine. It was something with the grape. It was kind of wet.

    Catherine Scorsese: That's different. But don't insinuate.

    Charles Scorsese: Marty, what did you do with your tooth? You broke it?

    Martin Scorsese: What tooth? This?

    Catherine Scorsese: [gasps] You're not supposed to talk!

    I’m glad Spielberg stayed away from directing pure comedies after this one.

    This film was a delightful surprise! Also, I'm impressed that they shot this digitally considering how it looked like a 35 blowup of super 16. Riley Stearns is definitely a writer-director I will be looking out for.

    Now how are you gonna replace Dennis Quaid as Michael Brody with an actor that doesn’t look remotely like him? Unless this is one of those sequels that erases the events of the previous installment.

  • The North Star

    The North Star

    A pro-Soviet Union picture made by Hollywood, The North Star begins with an idyllic portrait of life on a collective farm in Ukraine (complete with song and dance) and morphs into a film that paints the horrors of war. German soldiers manage to take the farm and gorilla soldiers plot to get it back. By adding an intriguing subplot between two German surgeons and a Russian doctor, director Lewis Milestone delivers the message that those who claim to be morally…
