  • 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…

  • The Hooked Generation

    The Hooked Generation

    ★½

    Not something I would have gone out of my way to watch, but it's part of the Arrow Video William Grefe boxset so I figured I would check it out. This time the story is about some drug runners who take their drugs, murder, kidnap and more. This is another case of diminishing returns from Grefe. While he continued to mix it up with different genres, what worked for The Sting of Death was the unique elements like the giant…

  • Foreign Intrigue

    Foreign Intrigue

    ★★★

    Press agent Robert Mitchum arrives just in time to see his employer die moments later. When asked about his employers last moments everybody seems to wonder if he said anything before he died, and Mitchum becomes interested in learning about the very secretive life of his former employer which takes him to Europe as he seeks answers. Foreign Intrigue lives up to its name early on as Mitchum is continually on the move uncovering clue after clue, but once he…

  • 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…
