Escape Room 0

Escape Room – 2017 – Can you get away?

Escape Room look gruesome, doesn’t it? Well, that’s what I though anyway. You can also add the fact that it seems very interesing plot-wise. Think of it. You have som people in a game room where the objective is to esccape for a game. Suddenly it’s not a game anymore and the people in there are subjected to real terror when a killer is let in there with them. In my mind, I was thinking...

In Memoriam – Terry Jones – 1942-2020

Terry Jones has left us. I’m saddened but comedians are not allowed to let us mourn them. The show must go on and not even in death can the show not go on. Terry was, of course, part of the great gang of Monty Python but I would say he’s the one member that’s least recognizable as being a Monty Python. He was great in every skit and all that but he’s personality wasn’t that...

They Saved Hitlers Brain – 1968

They Saved Hitlers Brain has a special place in my mind. You see, when I was a youth one of my friends claimed to have seen this one and also argued that it was the worst film he’d ever seen. I, of course, hadn’t seen it at the time and had to trust his word for it. Not that I had problems doing that but back in those days it wasn’t as easy to track...

Stargate SG1

Now, this is an interesting post. I haven’t written anything in a while and now I find that WordPress is totally different. Updates are good perhaps but there’s something to be gained from recognizing yourself also. It’s the same thing with a series like Stargate SG1. You need to recognize yourself to be able to fully enjoy it. I guess that is true för most series though. There’s a problem with being too familiar though....

Dr Strange – 1978 – The lost TV-film

Ever since I was a kid I like magic tricks. Not that I necessarily believe in real magic but I like to be fooled by great illusionists. And I hate not being able to figure out the trick too. In the movie-realm magic exists of course. Real Magic. I have no problem with that what so ever. I enjoy it and I love fantasy movies with wizards and warlocks too. In Dr. Strange, we meet...

American Guinea Pig: Bouquet of Guts and Gore – 2014

Do you remember back in the day when Charlie Sheen reported one of the original Guinea Pig movies to the authorities, thinking it was a real snuff movie? If I’m not mistaken, that was the second of the Asian films – Flower of Flesh and Blood. Not the most realistic in the series in my opinion but certainly one of the bloodiest! When watching the first American Guinea Pig movie I can help but wonder...

Perfect – New Short by Jeremiah Kipp

Once again it’s time to write about a short film directed by Jeremiah Kipp. I don’t know how many I have written about by now but it’s been a few over the years. They all have in common that they are very good. They may not be Perfect (pardon the pun) but they all hold a very very high standard. Perfect is no exception to this rule. The acting is really good even it there...

Babylon 5 – The Gathering

When I first saw Babylon 5: The Gathering back in the day I had no thoughts of it being a pilot for a sci-fi series. It just didn’t occur to me. I guess most pilots for series are like movies though. They have a beginning and an end much like any other film. The Gathering contains some secrets though. So as a film, it doesn’t reveal enough of the truth needed to conclude it. As...

The Land That Time Forgot – 1975

Look at that poster! Isn’t it marvelous? You can see from a mile away what kind of flick The Land That Time Forgot is. You can see the adventures coming at you and you can see that it’ll take place on a mysterious island somewhere. In my world, movie poster art doesn’t get much better than this! But then there’s the movie of course. Does it keep the promises from the poster? Yes, I think...

Bird Box 0

Bird Box -2018 – Sandra Bullock

It’s no secret that I often enjoy older movies more than newer ones. I wouldn’t go so far as to consider it a rule but there’s often a lot more “body” to older flicks. Some of the more modern ones tend to tell a story for the sake of bringing along a lot of special effects. I’m not saying that this is the case here since Bird Box is quite short on such extravaganza. The story is...
