    ★★★★★

    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,…

    10 to Midnight

    ★★★★★

    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…

    ★★★★

    Based on what I had heard, I was expecting this cat and mouse thriller to be something along the lines of Mute Witness and it does have that vibe in some ways, but it’s also been forever since I’ve seen that so I can’t say exactly to what extent. I can definitely say that this has a much more kickass heroine and I could watch Violetta Schurawlow beat the ever loving crap out of awful men all day. I’m pretty…

    Sleep No More

    ★★½

    The setup for this is beyond ridiculous: a scientist and a group of grad students set out to test a theory that after 200 hours of sleeplessness, you no longer need sleep at all. Like, we’re actually supposed to believe a legitimate scientist came up with this idea?

    In spite of that, this had potential with the whole “somnivore” idea, but it never quite gets to anything past ok. It all comes off a bit underdone and all the potential…

    The Haunting of Hill House

    ★★★★★

    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…

    THIS. This was just not not not at all what I was expecting when I saw “directed by Fred Olen Ray” in the synopsis! I was expecting something super goofy and fun like Evil Toons, but this was like...unexpectedly traditionally good? Like, the atmosphere was amazing and maybe it’s just the super grainy VHS rip that I watched, but it was genuinely creepy at times? I’m using these question marks because I’m honestly still having a hard time believing that…
