    Hooptober 5.0 - 2018 - Film #8

    This movie is like a rag tag mish mash of The Island of Dr. Moreu, White Zombie, and The Creature from the Black Lagoon. It also recalls elements of the bizarre but true story that occurred on the island of Floreana in the Galapagos archipelago between the world wars.

    Once upon a time the island was populated by a couple of Nietzsche obsessed, German colonists with home made steel teeth who ran around…

    Wow! Its like this movie trepans into a man's skull, extracts a core of his mid-life crisis and replaces it with acid trip from hell.

    Arthur Hamilton was a middle-aged man. He was on track to be the executive of his bank branch. He was married. In turn, his grown up daughter has married, to a doctor no less, and she has moved out west.

    Everything was fine. Everything was going splendid. That…

    Back when J-horror was all the rage after the turn of the millenium, I watched the flagship films such as Ringu and Ju-on and enjoyed them quite a bit. However, Pulse eluded me at the time. So, catching up with it now has been a pleasant surprise. It is definitely a worthy entry into the cannon of the sub-genre.

    Similar to Ringu in its use of technology as a transmission mechanism for horrors…

    Hooptober 5.0 - 2018 - Film #5

    Any movie with a narrator that makes an announcement at the opening of the film that the climax is so shocking that the producer has offered to pay for the burial of anyone who drops dead from fright gets some points for being brazen. But does that guarantee happen to extend to paying for the burial of those that die of boredom? Because it was a little touch and go there for a…

    Film School Drop Outs Challenge 2017 Week 1 - Auteurs - Pioneers of Film - Lumiere Brothers , George Melies or Alice Guy-Blache

    Everything I love about cinema started right there in the 1890s. The Lumière Brothers started a long tradition of realism, capturing life on camera and providing a snapshot of different times, people and places. In extension of this, Alice Guy-Blache utilised this new mass media to reach out and engage broad audiences in social commentary and make…

    Johnny 5 is alive. And he got himself a security guard job at the local shopping mall.

    The mall owners activate three brand spanking new sentinel robots for the purposes of security after closing time. Just so happens that on this night of all nights, four teenage couples decide to throw themselves a little party in a furniture store (Horny teenagers + display beds, I will leave it with you to do the…
