    Evil Dead II

    ★★★★★

    I've loved this for as long as I can remember. It's one of my top 4 favorite horror films of all time, the ranking of which really depends on my mood. I used to be one of those people who would frequently skip the first entry, preferring to think of this as the true entry point into the franchise. I actually came at these backwards, seeing Army of Darkness first, when it was released on VHS, and subsequently discovering the…

  • Dracula

    Dracula

    ★★★★★

    If you've been following my Dracula marathon, you probably already know that my favorite aesthetic, when it comes to all things Dracula related, can be found in Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust. If we're talking live-action, however, it's somewhere between Taste the Blood of Dracula and the 1992 Coppola adaptation, but probably leaning more heavily towards the former. There's just something about the Hammer style that really speaks to me. But, what happens when Universal does a big Hollywood production with…

    Evil Dead Trap

    ★★★★★

    Wow! I was absolutely floored by this. I mean, I love Japan and everything, but I had no idea they put out the best slasher film ever, hands down, all the way back in the 80s. It has the brutality of something from the 2000s, with elaborate death traps that predate Saw by well over a decade. And, like, I expect Japanese stuff to be gory and mean-spirited, but I didn't expect it to be wrapped in a style that…

    Thou Shalt Not Kill... Except

    ★★★½

    This is another weird film to classify, genre-wise. It's not really a horror film. It's a goofball action film that has Sam Raimi playing a deranged cult leader. And Bruce Campbell has a story credit and makes a brief, uncredited appearance. And it's directed by Josh Becker, who did some lighting and effects work on Evil Dead and then later went on to work on Hercules and Xena. So, this is basically a low-budget action film made by a bunch…

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    ★★★★★

    So, I'm not entirely surprised that this is getting mixed reviews. I think it's something that afflicts the Godzilla franchise as a whole, rather than just this latest film. In my opinion, there are two main reasons why people dislike certain Godzilla films.

    First, we must consider the fact that Godzilla is just not for everyone. It's a very niche franchise that began as a series of sci-fi B-movies, featuring actors in rubber monster suits wrestling amongst, or demolishing, miniature…

  • Suicide Club

    Suicide Club

    ★★★★

    In 1990, Sion Sono traveled to the US to study at UC Berkeley. He claims to have spent the entire time he was there (around 15 months) watching B-movies and porno films, at a rate of about 5 films a day. He decided, during this period, that he would return to Japan and make the kinds of films that Japan would hate. And so he did. From what I've heard, most Japanese people hate Suicide Club. Well, that's their loss…
