    “You clowns are on dope!”

    I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard at a movie. Bobcat Goldthwait has a pretty unique career as a director, and this is his first and weirdest. It might not be as dark a comedy as World’s Greatest Dad, but this is pretty dark stuff and is bound to turn off many viewers. To begin, you’ve gotta be able to handle Bobcat and his irritating voice. Unlike his other films, he’s the…

    ★★★★★

    This movie is all over the place and I love it! I’d go as far as to say this is one of the most original werewolf movies ever made. The werewolves themselves are handled completely differently than in any other film of this type. These are not monsters who kill for pleasure or even food, and they are not cursed humans, they are depicted as a misunderstood separate species who resort to violence only when they have to as a…

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Spanish time travel thriller that gleefully  goes overboard on twists but is very well made. I liked it more this time than I did the first time I watched it, so I feel a repeat viewing might be needed to fully appreciate it. It’s a very intense and mind exploding film. Makes you try to make sense of the loop logic, whether there's a beginning to the loop (was there an initial other "rapist" at the start that Hector #1 saw,…

    ★★½

    A lot of wasted potential here in a dark comedy that doesn’t have the balls to actually be a dark comedy about murder in a redneck town. Phoenix is good, but he was better in To Die For from three years earlier (a much smarter dark comedy). Vince Vaughn is unbearable here, which is maybe the point but I hope I never have to hear that man laugh again. Jeneane Garofolo does her thing and reminds me why I’ve always been…

    Great gothic horror, wonderful viewing for the spooky season. Barbara Steele is mesmerizing in this movie. Literally a perfect movie to watch for Halloween.

  • The Cannibal Man

    The Cannibal Man

    ★★★½

    Maybe the weirdest cannibal movie I’ve seen. But this isn’t anything similar to the Italian cannibal movies of the late 70s and 80s, it’s more of a psychological thriller akin to Polanski’s Repulsion (which was released four years earlier). All of the horror elements derive from the title character dealing with the world around him combined with his desire to eat human flesh. The film has some effective violence, but is for the most part suggestive. For example, a room…
