Movie Reviews

Cthulhu is a movie that I have been hoping to see for a long time. I’ve been a huge fan of HP Lovecraft for a few years now, and seeing the “Cthulhu Mythos”, as it is called, on screen is just plain sweet. It’s done in a way that both stays true to its original […]

Have you ever: Come out of a movie and had absolutely no idea what happened? I thought I had. It took me about four tries with Eraserhead before I figured out enough of it to talk to people about it. I had to watch a couple experimental films when I was at university that left […]

I’ve always wanted to do this. Ever since my first watching of Evil Dead 2 as a boy I’ve hardly gone a single day without remembering something from the series, and so I feel strongly compelled to write about how much I love this movie, which I have seen in excess of a hundred times […]

David Cronenberg is too badass. I’ve seen a pretty good number of his movies… “The Fly,” “The Brood,” “Naked Lunch,” “Dead Ringers”… The first two have since become two of my favourite movies ever, and “Naked Lunch” is really the only way that the book could have possibly been adapted into a feature film. But […]

There’s nothing like creepy kids wreaking havoc upon their parents during the Christmas season to really invoke some holiday spirit. The Children is—without a doubt—one of the most downright disturbing and effective films brought to us by the newly primmed and polished version of Ghost House Pictures, Ghost House Underground. One of the first to […]

What can one say about Ronny Carlsson’s new film Récompence? What can one say about a film with no dialog? And indeed, what can one say about the man behind the film? As it turns out there is a lot to say about Récompence. For one thing it’s hard to find any constructive criticism. Ronny […]

Alright, laugh if you will… But I’m going to do it. I’m going to justify Plan 9 as a good movie. It’s been called “The Worst Film Ever Made” by an unimaginable number of critics… And those who disagree point to Ed Wood’s other film Glen or Glenda as the real place-holder. But I firmly […]

Jacob’s Ladder is a supremely cool mind-fuck of a movie. It’s the kind of film where you’re never sure if any of the explanations you’re given are legitimate, whether or not what you’re seeing real, and, in the end, whether or not you’re actually real yourself. Badassery as its finest. It’s based on a short […]

Deadgirl is an unconventional cumming of age tale which paints a grotesquely surreal portrait of the events that unfold upon two bored teenaged delinquents, upon having their hay-day turned hormonally horrific by the discovery of a dead-sexy girl chained up and sealed in plastic in the basement of an abandoned asylum. They both embark on […]

Shakespeare should have made this instead. Romeo and Juliet is a classic melodrama. Sure, there’s some exciting sequences involving sword fights and supposed deaths… Sure it has the most depressing (and incredible) ending ever. But it doesn’t have bondage, drugs, or a guy trying to fit part of his brain back into his head that […]
