    Talk about disturbing. I'm slowly entering the fantastical world of canadian horror...whenever I watch a certified weird horror film, I look it up and it's from Canada (a.k.a. "Things").

    This is no tacky slasher, mind you, but it's also not pretentious psychoanalytical BS, it just is. It's smart enough to leave space for personal interpretation at the end. I'm always one to complain about the horror genre being a copy of a copy of a copy, but this...well, it's been 29 years since "Pin" came out, but it's worth checking out.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A devil-worshipping cousin of the Pink Panther and french bathhouses, that's what I got.

    Wow. I'm not that familiar with german cinema or Jörg Buttgereit, I have only watched his 3 most famous works (Nekromantik, Schramm and this one), and I say you can recognize his movies from afar. Everything, from the shooting style to the creative art direction - but especially that unsettling/eerie feeling you get while watching one of his films - are trademarks of this talented filmmaker.

    "The Death King" is easily my favorite Buttgereit film so far, it pretty much…

    Absolutely fascinated by this one. It's rare for me to watch the remake before the original, but this was the case here. I honestly don't know what would have been my reaction if I had previously watched the 1980 film first, but right now I can't stop thinking how this remake was awesome...and I'm one who's always whining about this endless wave of remaking old classics.

    Anyway, I'm sure Elijah Wood surprised everyone in his imppecable performance of a serial…
