Last weekend was Hardcore and the Japanese film, Cure, which has some gruesome murders & a fairly weird plot.

Last night was The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Google it if you're unfamiliar as it's a pretty obscure American horror film.

BTW, if you attend any of the big horror conventions, be on the lookout for a bootleg LP of TCM. It has a silk-screened sleeve & features all of the music from the movie. Here's a photo of the LP cover:

Taeter City. Yet to see a Necrostorm feature that I feel is worth the praise it gets. No exception here either. Gore is plentiful and some is quite good but can never be taken too seriously when the blood looks like cranberry juice. Some really irritating moments too, all the computer generated graphics/cartoons annoyed me.

Cardboard Gangsters. Caught this on Netflix and it delivered for the most part. Actors were all convincing and it succeeded in painting a pretty bleak image of some of Dublin's rougher areas. There is some clumsiness and in pacing of the film and it ends pretty much just as it really gets going. I think it could've made a better mini-series than a 90min film. Worth a look if thuggish gangster movies is your thing.

Tuesday night was Ben Wheatley's Kill List, which I've seen 6 or 7 times now. Really love that one, only gets better with re-watching. brutal violence, unexplained developments, great music. I have no complaint to level at it. Reminds me that I need to sit down and watch A Field In England.

Last night was Wes Craven's The Hills Have Eyes. my first time watching it, I was a little surprised by how much of a trashy exploitation vibe it had. sure Last House is exploitative but in a more domestic way, but compared to this it feels almost button down. still enjoyable as hell and it was great to see a German Shepard fuck some people up.

have a feeling that I'll be digging into that cult film bitewerks mentioned, I think it's called the Texas Chainsaw Disaster or something. never heard of it but there's some guy who named latex face I heard is supposed to be spooky.

Thanks for the heads up - this looks like a good watch.

Con-Air is one of my guilty pleasures :D

Ilsa: She-Wolf of the S.S.- I'm guessing no label has tackled this film is due to rights issues, sky-high money demands or lack of suitable materials to scan. Money is the best guess. Thankfully, the Anchor Bay dvd set looks good. This film always surprises me with how violent & bloody it is. I think of it as just a sex film & always forget about all of the graphic torture. The bloody, burned, cut-up woman stalking tied-up Ilsa in the climax is a site to behold. Sure would like to see it in full HD one of these days!

Because I got them on one DVD for $4.99

Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday and Jason X

The Final Friday - forgot just how terrible the movie and plot are. some decent kills but the fact that they are from random characters who just have Jason's spirit just make them more or less meh. would have been better

X - just a stupid fun movie to watch with some okay kills. the best scene is when Jason is beating the campers with each other

Satan's Slaves -  Indonesian horror film -prequel to a film with the same name from 1980. interesting plot and a few jump scenes - couple gore parts but nothing over the top.

Finally watched this one for the first time last year and I was disappointed, partially due to misaligned expectations. will have to re-watch. Prince of Darkness is fucking great though! Some terrible acting and silly parts but the idea and general execution is pretty great.

Last night was my first viewing of Sleepaway Camp (1983) and I really enjoyed. I went to summer camp as a kid a lot of it rang true. kids are the fucking worst. and the acting from a the kids was generally pretty damn good. I guessed the ending pretty early on, but the execution was wayyy better than i could have imagined. the last 20 minutes or so really ramp up. I'll have to check out the terrible looking sequels soon.

Agreed on both counts! I felt The Fog to be pretty empty.

No, no, no. The Fog is a classic. Just ask Goatlord!

Watched mainstream films the last few late nights: The Last Boy Scout, Natural Born Killers, The Grifters.

I found good deals on a couple of releases from Unearthed Films: Atroz and The Song of Solomon. I'll probably check them out Halloween night.
