King Diamond – The Graveyard – 1996

My relationship with King Diamond is kinda ambivalent. I most often like the ideas behind the albums and I like the background music. I often have a problem with the vocals though, which is more or less the calling card of King Diamond. He has a gimmick of using falsetto, the Graveyard album is not an exception. Well, if you have a problem with that singing technique you have… well… a problem. King Diamong doesn’t...

Dragonforce – Reaching into Infinity – 2017

If you ever heard Dragonforce preform, you know that the tempo is way up there. It’s so fast sometimes that you are totally astonished. And it’s not just pedal notes as can be heard in som fast Thrash Metal. There are indeed scales and patterns played absolutely furiously. Reaching into Infinity was a real treat in that sense. No holds barred, very high tempo. For Power Metal it’s not necessary, but it’s very appropriate with this...

My Little Eye – 2002 – Big Brother sees you!

I remember when My Little Eye first came out. It was pretty hated by horror film fans out there. I, for one, actually liked it. A few weeks ago I decided to re-watch it to see if I was “wrong” back then or if I actually still liked it. To be honest, My Little Eye is a somewhat “dumb” film. The acting isn’t much to brag about and there aren’t enough brutality in it. I...

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...

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...
