Nutbag – 2000 – Nick Palumbo’s first feature

When I first saw Nick Palumbo’s Murder-Set-Pieces a few years ago I noticed that this was referenced. I knew that it was an earlier film by the director but not much more. There was probably a period when I searched for it without finding it. I can’t really remember. However, the other day I stumbled over it more or less for free. I paid a few cents for it but that was more symbolic than...

Y&T – Facemelter – 2010

Y & T has one of those kick ass cool logos! They have also a kick ass cool cover on their album. And Facemelter is a kick ass cool title too! I can’t remember when I last listened to them but since I got the pleasure to listen to this, it was too long! Y & T, Which stands for Yesterday and Today, is one of those classic bands. Those bands that has been around...

Worry Dolls – 2016 – Worry to Death

I got this more or less based on the cover art. It looked appealing in some way. I was also recommended it from the site where I bought it. Based on what I purchased before of course. I don’t know what I expected from it really. Of course my hopes where high som something really gruesome since it has 18-year-old recommendation on it. unfortunately is was more of a thriller than a horror fick. I...

Jigsaw – 2017 – Final(?) episod of the serial killer saga?

What is this? The seventh or eighth installment of this franchise? Never mind that, there’s no shame in a load of sequels and it certainly doesn’t mean that there’s a difference quality-wise. Sure, most of the time a film series loses quality the larger the number of sequels gets. This might even be true for the Saw franchise. I really can’t remember any of the previous parts in general. I remember the overall concept but...

Grave Digger – Healed my Metal – 2017

Back in the old days. The days when there was still a heavy metal radio show in Sweden. I remember that Grave Digger was played on that show. Yes, since Sweden is a very small country there was only on such radio show. Once a week they played metal at a great broadcasting time. I used to tape them just to expand my library of metal music. Those days are gone now of course. These...

The Three Worlds of Gulliver – 1960

If my memory serves me, Gulliver visited seven places during his four voyages. In Jonathan Swift’s original novel that is. with that said I must admit I was rather confused by the title – The Three Worlds of Gulliver. Which  of these travels would be included? Well, as the cover tells us, the first voyage, that to the land of Lilliput. Where very small people reside is included. This is the most famous story of course so it...

Grimm - 2011-2017 - All good things must end

It has been a pleasure watching this series from start to finish over the last couple of years. With that said I must admit that I wasn’t too impressed at the beginning. I seldom am. TV-series are not generally my thing. But since Grimm showcase occult themes and monsters I was lured into it. The basis of the series is that this cop – Nick Burkhardt, is approached by his aunt. She tells him that...

The Sandman – 2017 – Not just in you dreams

I really like Tobin Bell. He has a way of acting that seems totally distanced from what he’s doing. He seems so uninteresting in what he’s doing that he creates an aura of interest for his character. Sounds strange right? Well, I really like him. In The Sandman, he has a really small part though. I get the feeling that the only reason he’s in this is that he has a high celebrity status than the rest of...

Dean Brody – Beautiful Freakshow – 2016

Even if I sound like a total metal-head from time to time I’m really not. I seek great music in every genre and country is great relaxing music in my mind. How I find these artists beats me since I don’t have any knowledge of the county scene at all. Of course, once I found something I can google and read up about the artist and record. Dean Brody and Beautiful Freakshow isn’t an exception...

Jack the Giant Slayer - 2013 - Nicely made

I’ve lost count of how many adaptions I’ve seen of this classic tale. There is Jack the Giant Slayer, Jack and the Beanstalk and Jack the Giant Killer to name a few. I’m sure there are loads of other as well. Common for them all is that there’s a land above the cloud where giants (and other creatures) live. To get there you must climb a giant beanstalk. To get the beanstalk you need to...
