Saturday night was Southern Comfort (Walter Hill) & Macon County Line. SC is a classic & MCL is interesting as it starts out lighthearted then ends rather grim. Based on a true story that never happened.

I received the new blu of Basket Case, which, is suppose to look great as it's a 4k scan-restoration job by the Museum of Modern Art!

Mr. Vampire (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089371)

Saw this at a film festival earlier this week. Martial arts horror comedy from 1985, made in Hong Kong. Pretty much nonstop weirdness, action and awesomeness. At time the retarded childish Asian humor was a bit too much for me but the rest was pure gold. Did you know vampires cannot see you if you hold your breath?

Last night was The Beast Within from 1981. Pretty damn good. Ignore Scream Factory's silly 'Teen Wolf'-style artwork. You can flip the cover over with the orig. poster art. This film as some early, wild transformation special efx & a plot unlike anything else from that time period.

The Beast Within. This one is news to me. Haven't heard of it and after checking the trailer online I am lusting to check it out. Seems like a peach. Thanx for the share.

Charley Varrick- cool crime film directed by Don Siegel right after Dirty Harry. It stars the actor whom played the killer in D.H. along with Walter Matthau & Joe Don Baker (Walking Tall) as a self-righteous mafia henchman who 'does not knowingly sleep with whores'.

re-watched Takashi Miike's "Audition" last night. Been a long time and I think it still holds up quite well. The image quality on my copy isn't the greatest but it actually added a lot to the atmosphere. hoping to watch Miike's "Gozu" soon which has been recommended to me many times but I've never actually seen.

Yeah, Audition definitely holds up. I wouldn't mind picking up the Arrow UK blu as it's suppose to the best release of the film; the US blu is reportedly awful looking.

I've seen Gozu. I had a dvd-r of it. I watched it once & that was it. I don't remember liking it or really anything about it.

I've got Walking Tall on right now...

picked up a copy of "Tetsuo: The Bullet Man" by Shinya Tsukamato. I've seen the first two Tetsuo films and worship both, but this one has always made me a little nervous. but it was cheap and will probably be worth the $10 I spent so what the hell. The only other Tsukamato film I've seen outside of the Tetsuo series is "Vital" which is fucking great, but I need to check out his other work. Anyone have any recommendations?

I'm not sure I've seen the third Tetsuo film. Until looking it up, I was thinking there were only two. The second, I know I've seen, but I don't remember shit about it. Titles of his other films are all familiar but I'm not sure what I have seen.

Last weekend was free Showtime so I saw The Girl on the Train (useless melodrama); Contracted (lesbian body horror); and Maniac (the remake which is okay. The heel severing is the best scene. This is kind of like a remake by someone more inspired by Argento than sleazy slashers). I have The Autopsy of Jane Doe waiting on the dv-r. Seems like it received positive comments so I'm expecting it to suck.

Watch for Night of the Living Dead on Turner Classic Movies. They recently ran the new restoration by the Museum of Modern Art & it looks great! I was going to buy the new Criterion release but watching it on TCM will work just fine.

I quite liked Haze, a claustrophobic short film (49 min). Even if I am not claustrophobic this made me feel uneasy. Even if you don't like it it's less than 1 hour of your time!
