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...

Anatomy – 2000 – Creepy German Flick

As I’m a Swede I’m used to reading subtitles. I have always done that as long as I can remember. In fact, that’s the way I learned English in the first place; watching those late night flick on the TV. It definitely helped me to learn how to read in the first place. Nowadays I don’t need any translation help when watching English spoken movies but it the sub title is there I can’t help...

Crossbones -2005 – A Pirate Slasher

If you’re like me and have several thousands of DVDs in your collection, you’re always happy to find something that you never heard of that might fit your preferences. In this case I found a pirate movie and thought I would add a nice adventure film to my collection. Crossbones isn’t that though. It may be disguised as one but it’s really not. Crossbones begins with a narrator telling us the backstory of this pirate...

Carrie – 1976 – Spehen King Adaption

You can laugh at me all you want but the fact is that I never saw this classic until now. I can argue that there are so many movies and so little time but it wouldn’t be entirely true. The fact is that I feel that most Stephen King adaptions fail on one or more levels. Why should Carrie be any different? And even if I hadn’t seen it, I knew what it was about and...

7eventy 5ive – 2007 – Rutger Hauer

The semester is over on the university and a time of constant party and sex is coming up. The coolest gang of them all – The Crew, gets invited to a gigantic party at a rich classmate’s parents’ mansion. There will be all of the above, sex, alcohol and party 24/7. At least that’s what they think. An innocent game soon gets out of control. The point is to call a random number and fool...

7 Days – 2010

Dr. Bruno Hamel and his wife see their 8-year old daughter walking off on her own. That’s the last they see of her, at least while she’s still alive. She’s found a couple of days later raped and murdered! Her parents lose themselves with grief and start to blame each other for the terrible crime. They should have looked after her and they should have done this or that. A few days go by and...

666: Demon Child – 2004

Cover art can be very misleading from time to time and here is a fine example of that! If you look at the DVD cover you might not get an idea of a multilevel working picture but not of a total disaster either I think. It’s a turkey using the bad sense of the word and there’s not much to make up for it either. What happens (and it’s not much) is that a mystical...
