The Belko Experiment – 2016 – Would you survive?

The Belko Experiment begins pretty awkwardly. The employees are all searched when going into the office building. We as the audience knows that something violent is going to happen so for us it might not be strange. But if you look at it from the eyes of the personnel you might see it in a different light. Wouldn’t you be surprised if you suddenly were frisked before entering your office building, after being employed a...

Blair Witch – 2016 – An effective sequel

Do you remember when The Blair Witch Project came out? I think it was back in 1999 or something. It was really hyped and I think that almost everyone who saw it did that because of the hype. It had a very effective promotion to support it. In fact, I think that was the main thing about its success. What they did was to create a mythology and post is as real on different platforms....

Drive-In Massacre – 1976 – Surprisingly Good!

I really commend 88 Films for bringing these cult slashers to the public. It’s also obvious that the genre existed before John Carpenter made it famous in 1978 with his masterpiece Halloween. In this case, there might not be a masked killer and this is not a ‘boogeyman’ flick. I think those case later with franchises like Friday the 13th and Halloween. It is about an unknown killer though and no one is safe. Drive-In Massacre...

Scalps – 1983 – a desert slasher

The fun thing about slasher collections is that there’s always one or two that isn’t really up to par with the best of the genre. Scalps is such a movie. I don’t really understand what they thought about which conceiving this. It’s a movie that goes all over the place, it contains all of the necessary elements for a slasher but it never delivers the goods properly. It’s bloody, there is a campfire and ghost...

The Class 0

The Class – 2007 – a really disturbing movie!

Just looking at the cover art of this Estonian film give me chills. I was over-interpreting it of course. Look at the SS in the title words – The Class. Aren’t those very similar to the lightning bolts used but the SS during the second world war? That was what I thought, and I have a special interest in movies that revolves around Nazi themes. I’m not sure why but I think it’s about that dark...

Love Object 0

Love Object – 2003 – a sex doll lovestroy

Kenneth works as a copywriter of sorts. Well, forget that, not of sorts, he’s a copywriter specialized in instruction books. He’s very good at his job and finished long before the deadline every time. You could say that he has a pretty boring life and lives solely for his profession. Maybe that is why he’s so efficient and fast when it comes to creating instruction manuscripts. For this new assignment, he gets a new assistant but it’s obvious...

The Last Days 0

The Last Days – 2013 – modern post apocalypse

As always when a movie gets multiple releases the cover differs a bit from release to release. Some might look very interesting just by looking at the cover and some others wouldn’t make your head turn. In the case of The Last Days, I really like the Njutafilms release. It gives me a sense of hopelessness and I think that’s  an important quality of post-apocalyptic films. Of course, there’s a need for hope as well...

Seventh Son 0

Seventh Son – 2014 – Dungeons and Dragons

I don’t know where the belief that the seventh son of the seventh son should have magical powers. One thing is for sure though. It’s nothing that was invented solely for this movie. I think it’s ancient folklore actually. But does it really matter? It’s true in the mythology universe regardless of where the idea was spawn from. When I bought this at a flea market I had no idea what it was. I could see that it...

Attack on Titan Part 2 – 2015 – The story continues

When I saw the first movie Attack on Titan I wasn’t too impressed. But since I already had both of the movies I thought it would be a shame to not watch the sequel as well. I’m not sure Attack on Titan Part 2 is a traditional sequel though. It might just be a continues story. There are however some resumé at the beginning. In my case, I didn’t need it. I didn’t wait for...

The Moment after 2 0

The Moment After 2 – 2006 – Confusing sequel

The Moment After was a movie about people disappearing. The Moment After 2 is a movie about something completely different. Well, not completely different of course as it is a prolonging of the concept started in the first movie. There’s absolutely no record of people disappearing though. It is like that part of the story never happened. Or maybe we were given enough explanation in the first one? The Moment After 2 is more about the conflicts between the government forces...
