  • Marebito

    Marebito

    ★★★★★

    Takashi Shimizu’s Marebito is one of the most deeply unsettling and terrorizing horror films I’ve ever had the pleasure of viewing. This is a greater achievement than Shimizu’s Ju-On series in my opinion, as much a fan of that series as I am. This is a Lovecraftian nightmare with an unyielding sense of dread throughout. The 2003 Japanese film Pulse is forever the most terrifying film I’ve ever seen, and this is the first thing to come close to that…

    ★★★★★

    This is no joke the best thing I’ve ever seen. I saw this when I was 12 or 13, and I was repulsed and bored. 
    But now, as an adult, this is the most twisted and dark comedic film I’ve ever seen. The gore is fantastic, the torture scenes are absolutely cringe inducing but also manage to be funny. I was a bit ashamed at how funny I found some parts of this movie, in a way that made me…

    Has a movie ever been this trashy, but lovingly crafted, thought out, and downright badass? Probably not.

    ★★★½

    If you’ve ever wanted to see Emily Browning in thigh high socks sword fighting with giant samurai while Bjork’s Army of Me plays, I can’t imagine you’d hate this movie.

    I sure didn’t. It plays out like a 100 minute music video with a serviceable story to connect it all. Although a lot of the stylized visuals make little to no sense, who cares? it’s quite entertaining.

    I never want to see this again.

    It’s perfect.

    But I never want to see it again. 

    That scene is one of, if not the absolute most horrific thing I’ve ever witnessed in cinema. 

    100/100

    I hate you.

  • The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    ★★★★★

    The cinematic equivalent of a slaughterhouse. 
    A viscious assault on the senses. 


    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is the epitome of horror. Gritty, brutal, and expertly crafted. The world of this film feels like a fever dream, smoldering and dry, with flies buzzing around its many decomposing animal carcasses. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre shows no sign of aging, it’s more visceral and intense than nearly any other to come before or after. It’s been said to death, but the lack of…
