    ★★★★

    “Holy hymens, Batman! They’re killing virgins!”

    Ok, Cherry Falls is a severely underrated post Scream slasher film that turns the horror genre on its head when a killers M.O is to kill virgins,  rather than the usual ... 

    Randy: “there are certain rules one must abide by in order to successfully survive a horror movie... for instance 1. you can never have sex...” 

    I had a lot of fun with this one and it’s always good seeing the adorable Brittany…

  • Edge of the Axe

    Edge of the Axe

    ★★★★½

    “I’m telling you, this place stinks of death.”

    Finally, Edge of the Axe gets a bluray release and it’s never looked so good! Thank you Arrow Video for recognizing this fairly underrated hidden gem of 80s slasher goodness.
    For me, there’s nothing better than getting the news that a film you’ve been wanting to get a bluray release, does get the treatment and the final result is outstanding.
    I’m happy as fuck. 

    Edge of the Axe isn’t the perfect slasher…

    Criterion challenge 2021 part 2: Akira Kurosawa 

    “A scene that looks like a painting doesn't make a painting. If you take the time to look closely, all of nature has its own beauty.” 

    I’m on my third Akira Kurosawa film of the day, that’s right, my day consisted of literally watching and fully indulging in on all this brilliance, I couldn’t be happier. 

    There are eight shorts in this beautiful arthouse of an anthology, each are tiny, colorful, sensory-packed and atmospheric…

  • See No Evil

    See No Evil

    ★★★★½

    No one talks about this movie and that’s a damn shame! 
    Second time watching and it still managed to get under my skin and Mia Farrow is an absolute gem, but that goes without saying of course.

    A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

    ★★★★

    I watched the trailer to this about a year ago and my initial reaction was, "I might pass, looks kind of slow and boring, not my cup'a tea." I really had NO interest in watching this but of course, here I am finished watching and rating it 4 stars.

    A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is about a young vampire girl, who wanders the streets of Bad City becoming peoples shadows as they walk through the lonely streets at…
