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 – Stephen 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...

Last Trip – 2018

I got this film – Last Trip – sent to me for review. It’s the greatest thing when this happens since I can get to see something I wouldn’t watch otherwise. It can be almost anything, I really don’t care. I’ve gotten everything from extreme horror flicks to comedies over the years. I like alternate movies just like I’m fond of every other genre. Often I think it’s more interesting with the independent films. They don’t have...

Incident in a Ghostland – 2018 – This one messes with you!

Incident in a Ghostland messes with you! I thought I had this flick figured out multiple times during my session with it. Each time, up until the very end, I was wrong though. I had to think over and accept the fact that I’m not as smart as I thought I was. First off, I thought this would be a film about ghosts in a conventional sense. It isn’t! I don’t think that is a...

The Corrupt Half 0

The Corrupt Half – 2016 – Horror flick

The Corrupt Half was sent to me for review. I really like when that happens. Not because I get a shitload of great movies in my inbox but because it’s usually stuff that I never heard about before. There’s not much that gives me such satisfaction than seeing something I never heard about and have no idea what is. So I watched the trailer first and decided I wanted to see the complete movie. Said...

Gaslight 0

Gaslight – 1944 – Ingrid Bergman and Insanity

Gaslight is one of the very few movies I once was recommended to see by my mother. This was back in the eighties I guess and I utterly enjoyed it. Now, many years later I finally got hold of it on DVD. Not that I’ve searched for it very hard, but I have felt the urge to revisit it from time to time. Now I got hold of an Italian edition of it, apparently with another version...
