    House of 1000 Corpses

    ★★★★

    Fuck me this was a nice little surprise; Rob Zombie's directional efforts have somewhat of a bad rep but this was everything I could have hoped for. Brutally grotesque, explicitly exploitative and down right insane throughout. Highlights of the cast are Sid Haig & Bill Moseley, who's performance is just as unhinged as it was in TCSM2. There are definitely homages to Zombie's inspirations but he still manages to whip up a standout entry to the horror genre.

    What I went to watch in 2018 - Film #29

    A very fun watch despite being very very flawed. It feels like the studio had two scripts here (One fleshed out prequel and the other an unfinished draft of a sequel) neither get a chance to do anything of note and the constant back and forth really wears you down. Personally I think this should have just been a prequel as that was the most engaging part of the story…

    2018 Cult Movie Challenge - Week 29

    Yikes talk about trying to get across a ham-fisted message, this was bad. Like really bad. Aside from Cage I wanted this film to be the least bit entertaining but I'm almost certain I slipped into a fucking coma.

    2018 Cult Movie Challenge - Belated Week 26

    Still busy as all hell so just got around to watching this and holy hell what a work of art! It's erotic in its visuals, ingenious in its storytelling and the gore is just downright gnarly! James Woods is eerily good in this and the supporting cast all offer up their best. It is a bit whimsical in its execution but hot damn I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hooked.
