Paranormal 2

Alice Cooper – Paranormal – 2017

Is the king of shock rock’s new album Paranormal what we’ve been waiting for? Well, I don’t know. It’s a good album for sure if you’re an Alice Cooper fan. But on the other hand, as a fan you might recognize quite a lot of the material even if you never heard it before. It’s new song but they’re familiar in some way. Not all of them of course but enough to almost create a...

Feed the Light – 2014 – Lokalvårdaren

If you have high hopes when it comes to a movie, or something else for that matter. You usually end up disappointed. Or even very disappointed. In this case the reality is quite the opposite. I thought Feed the Light would be a good film and when I saw I realized that is was more than that. This is not a good film; this is a great film. I would even consider it a masterpiece....

Mr Holmes 0

Mr Holmes – 2015 – Ian McKellen as Sherlock Holmes

Mr Holmes completely slipped by me. I had not a clue about the film when I saw it used at some second had shop. Of course I realized that this was a fairly new film. The quality of the cover and the condition told me that right away. And there are not many me called Mr Homes either so I figured that the main character would be Mr Sherlock Homes from Baker Street. Then I...

Demons & Wizards 0

Demons and Wizards – Touched by the Crimson King – 2005

I have listened enough to this album now. With that I mean that I have had in in my earphones etc. for quite some time by now. Not that I’m tired of it yet, I’m not! It’s a great and interesting album. But I feel I should move on and explore something else for a while. But that’s how it is sometimes. You get stock with some music and you can’t really lay it down....

120 days of sodom 0

Marquis de Sade – The 120 Days of Sodom

Apparently, the infamous Marquis wrote this story in 37 days while being imprisoned in the Bastille 1785. Furthermore, the 120 Days of Sodom was written on a 12-meter-long roll of paper smuggled into the prison. You can say what you want about its content and about the Marquis himself. You may call him a lunatic and dismiss his work as perverted nonsense but you cannot say that anyone reads this book without emotion. 15-20 pages...

Martin Landau passed away

My first Encounter with Martin Landau was probably the Sci-Fi show Space: 1999. Here in Sweden the show was aired as “Månbas Alpha” which translated means “Moon Base Alpha”. I don’t know which is the better title for the show but it really doesn’t matter. When the show was released in Sweden a few years ago I had very vague memories of it. I got the series though and I started to remember fragments of...

George A. Romero 0

George A. Romero died

Why is it that George A. Romero never was considered to be one of the great directors of our time? Sure, among fans of horror he was considered a God but I don’t think that general movie goers knew anything about him. Yet he almost single-handed created a whole sub-genre! The Zombie films wouldn’t have been what they are if it weren’t for his vision. What George A. Romero did was to take a creature...

The Corrupt Half 0

The Corrupt Half – 2016 – Horror flick

The Corrupt Half was sent to me for review. I really like when that happens. Not because I get a shitload of great movies in my inbox but because it’s usually stuff that I never heard about before. There’s not much that gives me such satisfaction than seeing something I never heard about and have no idea what is. So I watched the trailer first and decided I wanted to see the complete movie. Said...

Enter the Ninja 0

Enter the Ninja – 1981 – Franco Nero is badass!

I was still in my youth when I first saw this film. I thought it was horrible! I really liked one ninja flick and that was Ninja III: The Domination. The need to compare all other ninja flicks to that one was imminent. It wasn’t until later that I understood that not all ninja flicks deal with supernatural powers. In fact, very few of them does. Enter the Ninja is really one of those movies that...

Death Race 2050 0

Death Race 2050 – 2017 – Cult Classic Remake

There are remakes and there are remakes. Some of them tell the story in a slightly different way and som of the copy the original frame by frame. Death Race 2050 falls under the first category but a little bit under the second one too. It’s a very entertaining movie that follows the main story of the original – Death Race 2000. Of course the original had both Sylvester Stallone and David Carradine in the...
