Went out to see Dogman last night. Same director as Gomorra, same vibe also. My favorite movie I saw in the past year. Also watched Journeyman (great acting) and The Guilty (Danish movie filmed in just 2 rooms; claustrophobic atmosphere and some nice plot developments).

Wanted to go see this one, but didn't make it to the cinema before it wasn't screened anymore. Is it as grim as one can expect from the trailer or press-pictures ?

FUNNY GAMES just started. My 2nd viewing; I hate the use of grindcore in the soundtrack at the beginning. I can't remember if it's used more throughout the film. I certainly hope not.

Last weekend it rained a lot so what I remember I watched was: Fulci's DON'T TORTURE A DUCKLING; HELL OR HIGH WATER; THE FINAL TERROR; and 68 KILL.

Ordered Hereditary on Video On Demand but the fucker will not play. Just a black screen with glitchy audio. Hoping it'll straighten the hell up later tonight.

Yeah, H.O.H.W. may have been a decent crime film without the heavy-handiness.

68 Kill was generally dumb. A couple of decent killings. I hate the cartoonish, over-the-top characters.

Saturday night:

Zombi Holocaust and Lizard in a Woman's Skin

Sunday morning:

Hereditary ; I watched it twice as the VOD glitched up a little so wanted to get my $5.99 out of it & make sure I didn't miss anything. I have no strong opinion on the film. I neither liked it a lot nor disliked it a lot.

Last night was Cronenberg's The Fly from 1986 with Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. Haven't watched this since I was kid but it made an impression on me then. Even better than I remembered. Can't imagine anyone better than Goldblum to play the part and goddamn was Geena Davis hot back then. Sfx on point, some really good dialogue especially in the 2nd half. Feel like I'm gonna be sampling this one at some point. I would watch it again today.

later this week i'm gonna have to peak at The Fly II which looks terrible. Or maybe I'll finally watch Hellraiser 6.

Last night was the incredibly shitty but somehow still enjoyable Hellraiser: Hellseeker. Somehow they got Ashley Laurence to reprise her character Kirsty for this 6th installment of the Hellraiser series. it's pretty similar to Hellraiser: Inferno which came right before so idkwtf. again its all "what's a dream, what's a nightmare and what's real" bullshit. but i always kinda like that bullshit. the twist is dumb, the acting is terrible and the dialogue is painful. but the women are attractive-ish and there's occasional titty and gore. and i appreciate it's mid '00s attempt at edgy. maybe i'm just a glutton for punishment but i can't wait to watch the next two: Hellraiser: Deader (!!!!!!) and Hellraiser: Hellworld, which look so fucking awful.

Last night was Romero's Diary of the Dead.

Last weekend was Night of the Living Dead 50th anniversary screening. Took a second to get used to 4:3 aspect ratio in a theatre setting.

Last night was William Friedkin's SORCERER- definitely my fave film by W.F. & possibly the greatest road movie ever made. The only thing that would make this film better is if you got the shits & lots of mosquito bites while watching.

HARDCORE starring George C. Scott is out for delivery today so I'll probably watch it tonight. I haven't seen it in a really long time.

The Nitzsche soundtrack on Hardcore is excellent!

Yeah, the guitar wailing & electronic sounds in Hardcore are pretty awesome as is G.C.Scott rampaging through a sex dungeon. I do wish the ending had been a little darker.

The Untold Story. This has been on my shelf for years and only watched it for the first time last night. Eccentric mix of typical Hong Kong black humor and some fairly mean spirited kills. Thoroughly enjoyable.

American Guinea Pig : Bouquet Of Guts And Gore. Contrived, shock value nonsense. This has already been done with films like Niku Daruma. Comparing it Flower Of Flesh And Blood is something I'll refuse to do, as that film is great in my opinion. Didn't like much about this at all and was bored through most of it.

because my friend and I hate ourselves we watched Halloween: H20 last night. one of the most unrelentingly boring and pointless films I've seen in a long time. and I've been watching all of the Hellraiser series! The guy who played Michael Myers looks like a 12 year old who showed up in costume on set and they just said "fuck it" and used him. he's fucking tiny and about as imposing as a kitten. the deaths are weak, the gore is weak, there are no tits, and absolutely no atmosphere. not a single point of redemption. this wasn't even fun to riff over. avoid at all costs.

Mandy - insane fucking movie and probably one of the best performances from Nic Cage
