The Hateful Eight – 2016 – Tarantinos eighth film

I will still claim that Quentin Tarantino isn’t a great filmmaker. Many of his films are entertaining to be sure but he’s not a great filmmaker. He is a great imitator of what other already have done before him. And he’s very good with dialog of course. He could write a whole film with just dialog and it would probably be spellbinding. That’s a good quality of course. It doesn’t hurt to select great actors...

Orca - 1977 - Creature Feature

If you want to find a serious film about animals attacking humans you need to go back in time. Most of those made today is really silly and ridiculous. That doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing of course. But movies that wink at themself and uses every cliché in the book are seldom frightening. For that you’ll have to go back to when these films were made to scare us and not to...

Behind Convent Walls – 1978 – Walerian Borowczyk

I’ve seen a few movie by Walerian Borowczyk before. I think they’re all more or less kind of difficult to watch. Not because of the adult themes often included in them but for the slow-paced process of the plot. Behind Convent Walls isn’t an exception from that rule. There’s actually not much going on. It’s more like a snapshot of what goes on behind the closed-door of the convent. And let me tell you, there...

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night – 2014

The cover of this bluray is filled with superlatives. I think the quote’s are a bit exaggerated but it’s basically the truth. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a gorgeously shot and visually stunning film. It is strange and special but it might not be the best vampire movie ever made. Not that I can pinpoint that to any one vampire film right now. There are a few beautiful vampire movies out there. I don’t...

Raw – 2016 – Vegan goes cannibal

I actually never heard about this before when I ordered it a few days ago. I saw it on some list where extreme movies were listed and felt like I needed it. It was fairly cheap as it’s not a general Hollywood kind of movie. Not that it matters where it’s made but I’ve found that movies outside Hollywood and especially from Europe often are superior. AS I said, I didn’t know much about Raw but since...

Miss Violence – 2013 – Slowly the truth reveils itself…

“On her eleventh birthday Angeliki jumps from the balcony and falls to her death with a smile on her face.” That was about all the info I needed before I knew I had to get this movie. These days I’m more interested of strong and repulsive flicks than those that are obvious and gory. Not that gory flicks are all that bad either but I like to think and not get all the info served...

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...

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...

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...
