    The Lords of Salem

    ★★★

    A "horror film" in it's most literal sense, Rob Zombies retelling of Rosemarys Baby and Poltergeist all rolled up into one is basically a hellish sensory experience and not much else.

    Now, Mr and Ms Zombie HAVE been known to create completely vile and despicable characters in the past. Characters who basically became their own sideshows inside the larger sideshow being presented.

    Jeepers Creepers 3

    ★★

    This is exactly the kind of crap schlock third sequel I could imagine myself liking a lot back in the day.

    A lot has changed since then, though. Nobody really cares about this series anymore, the director is a sex predator and I've basically lost all my innocence.

    It's got some genuinely fun, creepy moments but it's mostly just dumb outdated crap that probably shouldn't have been made at all. The Creeper is as good* as ever.

    *good meaning stupid. Really really stupid.

    Compulsive trash humper and arthouse demigod Harmony Korine has somehow created one of the most visually and viscerally intense films of this generation. Uh huh. The film about Disney…

    Pacific Rim

    ★★★★

    We're canceling the apocalypse!

    Damn. DAMN

    Its official. Guillermo Del Toro has briefly restored my faith in the blockbuster.

    Bold claim? Well, you will just have to see the film for yourself. I'll have to admit that when the trailers landed for Pacific Rim I was one of the guys who let out a little chuckle and rolled my eyes. But after reading some info, watching some interviews with Guillermo Del Toro, I feel like I had this breakthrough. An…
