"Did someone here write about The Hounds of Love? I noticed Arrow released it on bd/dvd. Is it worth checking out?"

yeah, a new arrow release, not seen any reviews but cover mentions it as true crime in same sentence as 'snowtown', a hard act to follow.
still, sounded interesting enough to consider.

Just watched and,possibly due to mindset,was not impressed and stopted an hour or so in.
Certainly nowhere near snow town as great Austin crime film.

agreed. of all the great posters Jay Shaw has done in the past 5-10 years, his poster for Dead & Buried is probably my favorite. which is why it's framed in my apartment.

That D&B poster is great!

Last night I watched Symptoms & The Dorm that Dripped Blood while it was raining.

This afternoon, while waiting for an electrician to repair some things, but who never showed up, I decided to watch The Wicker Man again.
I don't think the movie needs more comments or any introduction, but bonus The Wicker Man Enigma documentary on one of the discs was really interesting, for example that the original cut and some raw footage of the film couldn't be found and are supposed to be buried under the M4 motorway...

Last night was Cathy's Curse. It's a terrible French-Canadian supernatural, cheap-as-hell mess. The Severin  Blu release has a director's cut & U.S. theatrical versions. I watched the shorter U.S. film. It's kinda slow-going but there is enough lunacy to keep the film entertaining. I'm not too sure how quickly I'll get around to the longer dir's version. Recommended if you find it cheap.

I have a super cheap copy of Green Room in transit. Less than $5 shipped, sealed Blu-ray. I had forgotten about this film until seeing the trailer at the beginning of The VVitch. May ave to pick up Blue Ruin & give it another chance. I didn't care for it much the one & only time I've seen it but I can't remember why.

Night Warning aka Butcher Baker Nightmare Maker- take a shot every time the word "fag" is used, see if you're still conscious by the end of the film

Getting a super cheap bd of The Green Room. $4.99 shipped! Blood Feast showed up a couple days ago & looks really good.

Been awaiting the reissue of Der Todesking. Glad to see it finally out. Will def be my next film purchase. Good news on The Green Room. Dirt cheap w shipping. Maybe the director's best to date? Have been much rejoicing here w my annual samurai flick bonanza. Saw again Sword of the beast, Kill! and Hidden fortress some days ago. Next up is psychopath sword-buckler The sword of doom anno 1966. Looking forward to that. Other than that I've been checking out UK series Taboo on recommendation from Nil By Mouth. Far better than any of its trailers were able to portray. Can highly recommend the series to peeps here.  

- Oh yea, ace Dead & Buried poster!

The Sword of Doom is an all-time favorite of mine despite its flaws. I watched The Sword of the Beast a few years ago and really enjoyed that one too. Haven't seen Kill! but I can highly recommend Three Outlaw Samurai from 1964

Taboo, the series starring Tom Hardy? I watched but I'll be damned if I know what it's about. Good violence, lots of mumbling, & the first US series that used the dreaded F-word a lot.

Green Room was last night & it was merely okay. Worth the dirt-cheap price & it'll probably get another viewing at some point. Good violence, awful characters. I hated the face painting. Small detail but it was so unnecessary. Cool dog roaming around in the end.

If I recall correctly The Sword of the Beast, Kill! and Three Outlaw Samurai were done by the same director? Uncertain re Kill! TOS being his debut film. Quite good that one as well. I have it on my re-watch list as well. Forgot to mention the excellent Samurai Spy. That's a knocker. So is the aforementioned director's Goyokin. This time a full color operation, were as the previous being in sombre black and white. I especially have a hang up on the light gradations in Sword of the beast. Dense mid-tones and shadows. Love that.  

Taboo - Yea, that's the one B.W. Visually a proper en-devour I'd say. Articulated cinematography. The dog in The green room is thumbs up. I enjoyed the tension it managed to convey. Didn't tick in on the face painting, to be honest at the moment I cannot even remember it. It is not a perfect film, but that's a scarce find anyways. All in all, I'd recommend it.

Good news by the way.... Third Window Films have managed to find a new distributor for it's catalogue after the previous closed shop. Lot's of goodies coming throughout the winter and spring. Looking forward to Sion Sono's Antiporno, Love and other cults and forthcoming SABU film DANGAN RUNNER! Any fans of his flick MONDAY here?

Antiporno

This was great.


Finished the Waco series last night. It's good. Might revisit Waco: The Rules of Engagement documentary tonight.

Finished Gomorrah Season 3 a few days ago. Took me a few days to recover afterwards! Along with Twin Peaks: The Return, a total high-water mark for TV.
