    Nightbeast

    ★★★

    I’m a schlock kinda’ person, but I’d been sitting on this crummy Nightbeast dvd for years. Luckilly Mandy finally convinced me to break the seal and watch it. It’s goofy fun but slows way the fuck down after the first act. I like that we get no exposition on the alien menace at all. It just kills people cause it can.

My favorite movie and soundtrack of 2018 to be sure (Halloween don’t fail me now!) and I’m looking forward to seeing it again, and again.

    Lady Terminator

    ★★★½

    Yes, it rips off Terminator every chance it gets. It's also full of mystical, weird and wonderful things. Plus, and that's the real kicker, the action stuff is superior and way more brutal than the majority of similar schlock from around that time. Nobody is save, people get shot up in all kinds of glorious ways. Lovers of blood squibs take note, Lady Terminator's got you covered. There's a shootout in a police station which rivals even Maniac Cop II.…
