    The Severed Arm

    ★★★½

    It’s a goddamn shame that Thomas S. Alderman didn’t direct any more movies after The Severed Arm because this is really good stuff with a great story and a terrific electronic score. The atmosphere is dark and threatening throughout and the term proto slasher is often used when the movie is written about and yeah, I agree with that even though it’s more than ”just” a slasher.

    Eden Lake

    ★★★★½

    My wife has two all-time favorite movies. One of them is Gone with the Wind, the other one is Eden Lake. Today we revisited it on blu-ray for the first time. It's a punch in the face, a harsh and violent nightmare and one of the most effective thrillers of recent years! British-white-trash-surburban-forest-survival-horror at it's finest! Truly disturbing.

    I never thought about it before but Eden Lake is almost The Last House on the Left in reverse.
