  • Let the Right One In

    Let the Right One In

    ★★★★★

    Based on the novel of the same name, Let the Right One In is a coming of age story about a bullied 12 year old boy who befriends his new neighbour, a 12 year old girl, or at least she appears to be. As their friendship grows, so do his issues with the bullies and he may have to do something about it before they go too far.

    From start to finish everything about this film is fantastic: the performances…

  • Mutant Hunt

    Mutant Hunt

    ★★★

    When the evil chairman of the Inteltrax Corporation turns the company's cyborgs against humanity and holds their inventor captive it's up to the inventor's sister and her enlisted help to save the day. Mutant Hunt is one of those cheap movies that tried to cash in on the success of the original Terminator film and it's a pretty fun time. We've got mutated sunglasses wearing cyborgs with Dhalsim-like stretching arms, laser guns, really bad "futuristic" uniforms, a hairy chested guy…

  • Don't Answer the Phone!

    Don't Answer the Phone!

    ★★½

    A disturbed photographer is strangling women while calling into a radio show to taunt the host and detectives a step behind him. Maybe it's because I watched them so close together, but Don't Answer the Phone! felt like it had many similarities to Double Exposure, but was a bit less fun. Whether you think his performance is well acted or not Nicholas Worth is the highlight of the film and he's believable as such a sick individual so it's a…

    TC 2000

    ★★½

    When Billy Blanks and Jalal Merhi first collaborated in Talons of the Eagle it was a predictable but fun film, so when they worked together again there was hope they could do the same, but unfortunately TC 2000 fails to do that. There is a much more ambitious sci-fi story this time involving the poor living on the dangerous surface of Earth while the rich live underground, but it's sloppily thrown together and not overly interesting. It should be noted…

  • The Thing

    The Thing

    ★★★★★

    The two headed corpse. The dog's transformation. The crew's first victim's screeching. The stomach ache. The blood test. So many iconic images and moments make this John Carpenter masterpiece the classic that it is. The jump scare with the blood is amazing. It's crazy that the score isn't by Carpenter since it sounds so much like something he would compose. My favourite scene is easily the blood test. The practical effects are phenomenal and mostly hold up today. Dean Cundey…

  • Crawl

    Crawl

    ★★★★½

    Crawl is one of those rare opportunities where we get a creature feature with a big enough budget to give us something that doesn't look cheap and can actually be convincing and director Alexandre Aja does not disappoint. The special effects for both the hurricane and alligators look fantastic as two likeable characters played by Kaya Scodelario and Barry Pepper are trapped in the crawlspace under their house as not only the gators close in, but also the floods begin…
