Wow, I was seriously not expecting the original silent film to be the darkest and strangest of them all but this takes the cake. Exceptional visuals and one particular, fucked up, editing sequence. Hyde is at his best here, really impressive.

This was fucking awesome.

This is an excellent documentary that really attempts to explain Hitchcock’s shower scene from every possible perspective; dissecting details and offering context from various sources. I really dug the commentary from all of those involved.

Kathryn Bigelow is such a versatile director. It’s hard to believe this is the same woman who directed The Hurt Locker but then again, she doesn’t shy from explosions.

Near Dark is just awesome. These vampires are the outlaws of the 80’s. It initially has a very similar vibe to The Lost Boys but adds a ton more grit. The effects are all incredible and really just continue to amplify all the way until the finale.

It’s a great vampire film.

This film is close to perfection and instead of regurgitating everything that so many have talked about before, I just want to talk about one scene. I’m going to attempt not to spoil anything.

There’s a scene where Norman Bates first shows real nervousness. The actor playing him, Anthony Perkins, puts on probably the most believable performance here that I’ve ever seen. It really gave me chills.

If you haven’t seen this before, it just might be the first and greatest execution of a theatrical misdirection. I think if Hitchcock could hear horror fans complaining about marketing misdirections such as with It Comes at Night, he’d be rolling in his grave.

Matthew McConaughey really shows his stripes in this early role and it’s kind of a prime example of why the romantic comedy rout was never really for him.

Frailty summons all the potential plot lines of a crime-thriller but instead, delivers what horror fans crave. It’s an excellent film.

Outstanding performances from both mothers and really just an excellent film all around. It’s probably the earliest film to tackle childhood evil in a realistic sense, without all the usual campiness.

It has a really satisfying ending as well. Rhoda is such a little shit.

This is really just such a classic monster movie and one that definitely seems to take inspiration from earlier predecessors like King Kong. It of course has the advantage of a few decades on that film but a lot of the same style of effects/miniature sets are used and in general, somehow seems to lack any of the goofy shots that these films usually contain.

It’s a really crisp and concise story and yeah, essential monster movie man. Godzilla rocks, go watch it.

As my girlfriend pointed out, the most hilarious thing about this movie is the fact that it’s a sequel to a decade old, already shitty film that no one asked for.

This movie definitely dips its toes in the so-bad-it’s-good territory but only if you’re half paying attention.

It’s pretty awful.

You really get the all encompassed theater experienced Schumacher’s film. It’s very pretty, has lovely singing and little if fuck-all to do with horror.

I might be gay now.

Well that’s certainly a mouthful of a title. You know what the most genius thing Sergio Martino ever did for horror was? He figured how to inject smut into almost all of his films but does it in an artistic way that seems to enhance everything.

Speaking of smut, I never get tired of talking about how excellent Edwige Fenech is. Not only is she gorgeous but she can carry a gaillo film along with the best of them.

All the ranting aside, it’s an excellent Martino film.
