    Fear in the Dark

    ★★½

    This very basic horror documentary, narrated by Christopher Lee, is saved by the quality of the participants: John Carpenter, Dario Argento, Wes Craven, William Friedkin, Clive Barker, Robert Bloch, Kim Newman, James Herbert, and Barbara Steele, among others. But if you’re a seasoned horror fan, it’s nothing you haven’t heard before.

    ★★★★

    Razorback is so much better than I remembered it being. It’s not just “Jaws in the Outback”, there’s so much more going on in this movie.

    ★★★★★

    Man, oh, man! Just when I'm beginning to think I've seen every horror movie worth watching, an obscure gem like this one here sneaks up on me and blows me right the fuck away. 'La Residencia' is an unjustly overlooked masterpiece. It's a bit leisurely-paced, but the characters and mood and atmosphere – not to mention the lush, melodic score by Waldo de los Ríos – are all strong enough to hold interest. By the end, I was spellbound. See it!
