    Zombie Flesh Eaters

    ★★★★★

    Fulci somehow pulled it off. The madman crafted a sequence that offers a pair of great boobs, nautical underwater adventure, a shark VS. zombie showdown, and a spacey Fabio Frizzi soundtrack. Clearly the peak of filmmaking as we know it.

    Days of Heaven

    ★★★★

    I enjoy this film quite a bit. There’s a meditative quality to it that makes it both relaxing and confrontational. It lacks the relentlessness of Badlands, but that’s not the focus of the film. The Ennio Morricone score is good but nowhere near his best. Days of Heaven also has some of the best cinematography you will ever see, and it will most likely never be replicated.

    Parasite is the perfect family film.

    Jeepers Creepers

    ★★★★

    Giving this film a high rating is in no way sympathizing with the director’s horribly troubled past. I despise Victor Salva, but Jeepers Creepers stands tall as the most inventive and unsettling monster film of the early ‘00s.
