    For a long time, I thought there was no way I could possibly write about my favorite film of all time because I felt like there was nothing I could say that would do it justice. Then I realized, you know, that it doesn’t really matter what I say about it because this film speaks for itself. It is a perfect movie in every way and everything about it is well, perfect. The direction, the camerawork, the score, the lighting,…

    I finally got a chance to watch this and it is a beautifully glorious sleaze trashterpiece. Cannon, J. Lee Thompson and Charles Bronson is a great combination, but this might be the greatest of them all. 

    Part police procedural and part slasher, I really couldn’t ask for anything more...but wait, there is! There’s plenty of blood flying and the killer strips nude before he does his thing which means Gene Davis runs around with his dick swinging so often that…

    ★★★★½

    This is (yet another) one of those movies that I just can’t believe doesn’t have a higher rating. It hits all the right notes for me: a folksy horror vibe, a nondescript European setting (even though it was filmed in Canada it works!), a supernatural story with plenty of gore, what’s not to love??

    The story is interesting and that may be because I’m a sucker for those Hostel-esque setups where a group of Americans find themselves ass deep in a…

    ★★

    Oh how I wanted this to be better! And it’s not even that it’s bad, it’s just that it’s so painstakingly average that it ends up being disappointing. I mean, you would think a sequel that literally nobody asked for or expected would have something really impressive up its sleeve but nope it’s just vanilla and white bread all the way.

    A supernatural twist is added into this sequel and it’s actually a pretty good idea, but it’s all handled as…

    ★★★★★

    Absolutely the best miniseries I have ever seen. Possibly the best miniseries ever made and yes I am absolutely serious.

    Everything in this was the best choice. The whole thing continuously impressed me, but that ending to episode 5 slapped my ass right across the room. Across the goddamn room. The entirety of episode 6 should and will be examined in film schools from here on. Episode 10 gave me so many intense feelings including some that I usually don’t…

    I went to see a movie in the theater y’all! That’s all thanks to Parker Brennon for getting me to be social and I hope it’s the first of many movie dates! And I loved this! I dunno, maybe I just lack the analytical movie critiquing skills to give an appropriate review, but from a purely entertainment standpoint I really really enjoyed it! 

    I don’t even get all the negativity and I’m not sure if it’s because other people are too harsh…
