Miss Violence – 2013 – Slowly the truth reveils itself…

“On her eleventh birthday Angeliki jumps from the balcony and falls to her death with a smile on her face.” That was about all the info I needed before I knew I had to get this movie. These days I’m more interested of strong and repulsive flicks than those that are obvious and gory. Not that gory flicks are all that bad either but I like to think and not get all the info served...

Star Wars VIII – 2017 – The Last Jedi

I’m kinda impressed by anyone that attempts to write and direct a sequel to such a well-known saga as Star Wars. Everyone kinda knows the story already and chances are big that you write something that die-hard Star Wars fans consider contradictive against the franchise canon. I, myself, don’t consider myself to be a die-hard fan though. I think there’s way too much information to keep track of anyway. And besides, what can you do about it?...

Please, Daddy, No – 2006 – Sadistic Perversion

I found Please Daddy No in a second-hand bookstore a few weeks ago. Actually, I had seen it there many times before I bought it. I usually but a lot of books without ever starting to read them. It’s the same with movies and music, I buy stuff but never find the time to enjoy many of my findings. Recently I’ve started to read again though. I might not be a fast reader, and I...

Worm – 2009 – Richard Powell is GOD

Geoffrey Oswald Dodd is a plain teacher and lives an ordinary life with content. He happily teaches his students and to grade their papers and there’s nothing special going on at all. At least that’s the outer image that people see, in reality the truth is somewhat different. He’s plagued with dark thought about (in his mind) the retarded students in the class and wants, beyond anything else, to bang the only bright thing in...

John Wick – 2014 – Keanu Reeves and Michael Nyqvist

I have a mixed impression of Keanu Reeves acting skills. I don’t know why since most of the film I’ve seen with him have been quite enjoyable. Most of all Matrix I think. That ought to be the one single film that Keanu Reeves is most known for. Since this isn’t a review of that movie I will keep it brief but I keep insisting what that movie’s quality really are. It’s remembered for stunning...

A Child Called It – 1995 – A True story

I think it’s some kind of safety mechanism in the human nature that starts to doubt the authenticity of a story like A Child called it. It’s too gruesome, too horrible so it cannot be true. It’s easy to think that way. Are there really people in this world that can be this sadistic to a child? Well, since it’s claimed to be a true story, apparently so. For some reason, I feel that stories like...

Sargad 0

Sargad – 2017 – A swedish revenge slasher

The first thing that got me interested in Sargad was the poster artwork. There’s something special about a woman standing in her underwear, with blood running down her legs and with a hedge cutter in her hand. It’s the kind of artwork that is pure genius really! Sargad obviously didn’t have much of a budget. It shows from time to time. There are problems with quality in some scenes and not in other so there’s not...
