Predestination – 2014 – Time travel gone confusing

I really like films that challenge my intellect. There are few times I’m confused by them even if the message isn’t clear. Often you can make philosophical och metaphorical conclusions and by such means “get” the movie. Particular hard to understand are time travel flicks. Especially if the time travel occurs back and forth where the characters meets themselves in the past. Or in the future for that matter. Predestination takes this one step further...

Riddle Room 0

Riddle Room – 2016 – A Puzzle Mystery

I was watching this movie – Riddle Room. I thought it was a very interesting title. It doesn’t say much about the contents of course. The main plot is this woman being held captive in a room. She is tormented by masked kidnappers. We know that there are clues inside the room on how to escape. We also know that there are Clues inside the room to whom the woman really is. She doesn’t know...

Alestorm – Curse of the Crystal Coconut – 2020

The last time I wrote about Alestorm I wasn’t too impressed. I thought that the concept of Pirate Metal was a little bit too forced and that it became more humorous than it needed to be. Still, I found it to have good melodies and also having quite a bot of hooks in the songs. With Curse of the Crystal Coconut, I would like to revise my opinion about the band. Not the album that...

Creepozoids – 1987 – The cheesiest flick out there?

If you think the artwork on the cover looks cheesy, think again! The film itself is far cheesier than the cover art give it credit for. But that’s the whole point of Creepozoids. You can just taste the title. So fantastic! and the monster are rubber fetishism extreme! I kind of love these premiss. Because if this was made to look good and the acting was Oscars material it wouldn’t be half as amazing. Then...

Witchtrap - 1989 - Finally on blu-ray

It was some months ago that Kevin Tenney himself revealed on Facebook that hit 1989 movie Witchtrap were to be released. As I remember it from my youth as one of the favorite occult movies it was like music to my ears. It turned out that it wasn’t just any release either. It was an upcoming bluray release that I didn’t want to miss. In fact I was ready to pay quite a lot for...

Kobra and the Lotus – Prevail I – 2017

I have heard Kobra and the Lotus before. As I recall it was a very present meeting with their previous album High Priestess. So when I saw another album was coming out I just had to check it out. It’s been a while so I don’t really have High Priestess in fresh memory but you shouldn’t compare anyway so it doesn’t matter. Sometimes I can’t help myself though and need to compare with everything. Prevail...

Grotesque - 1988 - low budget morality

I need to make a confession. I’m fascinated by Linda Blairs persona as an actress. Because, let’s be honest, she haven’t made a great performance since the Exorcist in 1973. But she has something that I can’t put my finger on. I enjoy the movies she’s been in. If they’re really low-budget so much the better. In Grotesque she doesn’t have a major part. It’s more like a supporting role or possibly a role just...

Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity – 1987

There’s nothing like a nice cheesy flick! And whoever says this isn’t cheesy is either a liar or a fool. From the very beginning of Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity this is a hilarious experience. From the very first spoken line you realize that these actresses weren’t chosen for their acting skills. On the contrary they have pretty nice bodies and there’s even scenes were they have to act topless. I think the challenge was...

Ghost Warrior 0

Ghost Warrior – 1984 – A frozen Samurai

I must admit that I never heard about this movie before. It was more or less a bonus when I ordered som other stuff. It seemed nice and I figured, what the heck?! So I got Ghost Warrior and started watching it. The beginning is set in feudal Japan and I was hoping for it to stay there. It didn’t though and I guess that’s the whole point of the movie. In a fight this...

Love it to death 0

Alice Cooper – Love it to Death – 1971

In 1971 Alice Cooper finally started to get close to the sound that would put them on the map of rock n roll forever. There is still a couple of song on Love it to Death that are kind of psychedelic but there’s fewer of them than ever before. It’s obvious that the involvement of Bob Ezrin as producer was a real vitamin injection for the band. For me, this is where the true saga...
