    The Invisible Man

    ★★★★★

    The Invisible Man: Perhaps my favorite of all the Universal Monster movies. Where the policemen are dimwits and the innkeeper’s wife hysterically shrieks at anything out of her control. Where emotions take over and murder becomes humorous yet still terrifying. Where Claude Raines isn’t just the raging mad invisible man...but the man, giving an out-of-body performance like no other.  

    Obviously groundbreaking as a 1933 film, I’m still blown away at the effects & dialogue every time I watch The Invisible Man. I love it more with each viewing.

  • The Fly II

    The Fly II

    ★★★

    First off, why the hell are Martin’s caretakers such assholes? Papa Bartok really put together a staff of complete dicks in that facility.

    Right away, the music in The Fly II was very familiar. Then it hit me...Hellraiser! When I read the score was handled by the same composer, I gave myself an approving nod for recognizing Christopher Young’s work. Well done, Lance. Well done.

    Disjointed & poorly edited but still The Fly II feels a bit like a long Tales…

    The Fly

    ★★★★

    The pacing in this movie is lightning-fast. Like a fly dodging your swat. No one in their right mind would dislike Jeff Goldblum and this is the movie that made me fall in love with him (and Geena Davis) when I was young. His mental and physical transformation in this film is absolutely mind-blowing. Truly captivating. The effects in The Fly used to haunt me as a kid and I find myself wanting to revisit them as an adult.

    Not my favorite Cronenberg...but The Fly was my first Cronenberg and will always hold a special place in my vomiting heart.

  • Damien: Omen II

    Damien: Omen II

    ★★★

    Starts off very Indiana Jones and the Omen Part Two. Ends with quite the twist. For a second there, I thought Aunt Marion was the Antichrist. 

    And as always, Lance Henriksen is a badass.
