Fantastic beasts and where to find them.
A Harry Potter spin off prequel.
I had to go to this movie, because the 'flatmate' is a fan of the original books and movies.
If you like the Potter series of movies this is for you.
Personally i don't like any of the books or the movies, even the one iv seen and this was no different.
I fucken hated it.
Loads of CGI, not a huge amount of plot and a complete waste of a sunday night.
Unrateable pile of shit.
Fuck you J.K. Rowling!!!

Siege of the dead. (Rammbock) Germany. 2010. 8/10
A zombie movie where the zombies are left alive, so to speak. It's plot is more a drama with some comedic and survival elements.
Set in an apartment block. Only 1 hour long.

Suspiria. Italy 1977. Dario Argento. 6/10
This film is always featured on horror best of lists. The film uses ALOT of red lighting including the walls of the dance academy.
Not for everyone. There a remake with Tilda Swanson set for release this year.

The Handmaiden. 9/10
2016 South Korean erotic psychological thriller film directed by Park Chan-wook. (Oldboy.)
Really nicely filmed with a great script and lezbo scenes.

The Wailing. South Korea, 2016. 7/10
A 2.5 hour ghost story. Great movie but very layered with lots of twists.
Ridley Scott is looking at a possible remake, it won't come close to the original.

Sadako vs. Kayako 7/10 Japan.
Had some nice scares just like the original Grudge and Ring, kinda funny with an interesting storyline.

Train to Busan. 2016 (Korean) 9/10
A zombie outback on a train. Sounds simple but the elements of the plot and twists were really great!!!.
A U.S. remake next year. Given how the Oldboy version turned out and that had Sam Jackson & Josh Brolin in it, directed by Spike Lee and was laughable garbage. It's best to see the originals of both.

ALIEN 8/10
Still a great movie even 28 years on.

Dr Strange. 3/10
More CGI than plot.

Dunkirk. 7/10
 Good, but not great. The different time lines, didn't see or understand it.
 It set a nice level of tension and didn't show gore.

Post by: Jon Evil on July 28, 2017, 12:43:54 PM
Aguirre, the Wrath of God. 1972, director Werner Herzog. 8/10
 Minimalist story and dialogue about a group of Spanish soldiers in search of the mythical city of gold El Dorado.
Strange and errie, considered a classic film. Not for everyone.

All the presidents men.  1976.  7/10
 A political thriller based on 'Watergate.' No subsplots, just the two reporters, the newspaper and the people they are trying to get information from.

2LDK.  Japan 2003. 8/10
 From Wikipedia. Two ambitious actresses, who share an apartment, learn they have been short-listed for the same part and that they have to wait for one more night to see who wins the part. As they bicker throughout the night, their competitiveness and hidden grudges turn their apartment into a battlefield.
 Japanese real estate acronym for an 2-bedroom apartment with a Living-room, Dining-room, and Kitchen.
 I'd never heard of it and untill hearing about it on a horror podcast. Couldn't get a copy off torrent so i ripped a version of you tube.
 Running time of just over 60 mins.
A slow relentless build up. Classic cinema.
 
 Eat local.
 Low budget Brit vampire comedy. 5/10.
 It was funny although i found myself looking at the clock, the story revolves around a group of vampires hold up with a human in a farmhouse while some tactical army blokes are outside trying to kill them all. No real backstory as to why but ignore that and enjoy the ride.
 
 The girl with all the gifts. 8/10
 A slightly different take on the zombie genre, kinda funny and tense with some stupid moments, but worth a look. Saw a review saying it was better than Train to Busan. No. It isn't that good, just a close second.

RAW   9/10
 French-Belgian film written and directed by Julia Ducournau.
 A young lady goes to uni to become a vet and also a cannibal.
 Excellent movie, didn't think much of the trailer but there has been some hype in the mainstream,  it reminded me of the Inside, Frontiers wave of French horror a few years ago.
ALIEN covenant.
7/10
The fifth alien movie, lots of things happening, very heavy on the idea of who created who. Wouldn't watch it again.

CHiPS. 4/10. Entertaining and completly forgettable, i'm surprised i made it all was thru and i wasn't smoking weed or drinking.

A Serbian Film. 2010.
 A well-crafted film thats subject matter obliterated any praise that could be applied to it. If controversy is what a horror film aims to create as part of the marketing plan, this one had it in not spades, but truckloads.
 There is a doco planned and possibly a directors cut. Article here. (http://www.blumhouse.com/2017/06/21/documentary-on-a-serbian-film-in-the-works-and-possibly-an-extended-cut/)
 Iv watched it twice and still find a good movie, that would put me squarely in the minority, shit happens.
 10/10

The hitmans bodyguard. 2017
 Predictable but funny, action-comedy Netfix 'original'.
 With a two hour running time it dragged like a slow shit after the first hour. It really could have done with 30 mins trimmed out of it. Near the end i found myself fast-forwarding thur any talking.
 The stunts were pretty good and the action, although brainless, was entertaining. Salma Hayek was completely wasted in it and to a degree Gary Oldman.
 I got a torrent copy that was leaked.
 Glad to have not paid for it.
 4/10
Title: Re: The Last Movie You Watched

The Bride. 2017.
 A Russian ghost story.
 Lionsgate have got the remake rights. Bloody Disgusting (http://bloody-disgusting.com/movie/3463132/lionsgate-remaking-bride-conjuring-writers/) (includes trailer)
 Pretty good overall, 8/10. When i saw it was being remade i made a point to watch the original, its 95mins, but the blokes associated those fucking 'conjuring' movies will grind it out to at least two hours and it will lose alot in translation.
 Got a copy off Pirate bay and subtites elsewhere.

A dark song.  8/10
 A 2016 Irish independent horror film about a woman who hires an occultist to get vengeance for her dead son.
They are locked in a house together and do a series of rituals. It slowly builds the tension thru a lack of action.
 Trailer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvQ2ClKbRcU)

3 billboards...
Interesting but too somber and depressing to make what ever humor in it effective. About 3/4 thru i hit the fastforward button. 6/10.

The shape of water.
I wanted to see this but when my flatmate insisted we go to the cinema saturday night on the back of a very lack of sleep friday, i was soo tired and angry i couldn't stay awake. This badly tainted my opinion of it and i no desire to ever see it again. Seemed interesting the bits i saw.

Mother.
Really no idea about this, the characters are GOD, Adam, Eve, Mother nature and humanity.
Strange. 7/10

The Death of Stalin.
If you have seen VEEP and the other political series and movie this bloke has done, it's worth the watch.
I really enjoyed it. Heavy on the dialouge and the politics but highly entertaining.
10 out fucking 10.

I, Tonya.

Tried to watch it but gave up, a pathetic doco-drama based on a eye rolling incident. Margo Robbie swears.
2/10
Title: Re: The Last Movie You Watched
Post by: Jon Evil on April 13, 2018, 01:01:06 PM
Thirst. 2009
Park Chan Wook (director of Oldboy.)
Interesting take on vampires, typical of Park, kinda slow but interesting, i only got an hour thru it before i started to nod off, but i will go back to see how it finished.
Basic plot, a respected priest, volunteers for an experimental procedure that may lead to a cure for a deadly virus. He gets infected and dies, but a blood transfusion of unknown origin brings him back to life as a vampire
6/10

You were never really here.

Directed by Lynn Ramsey, stars Joaquin Phoenix.
Strange, quiet and brooding. A movie that doesn't have gimmicks, CGI or a obvious plot. At the end of this movie i was confused but satisfied that i'd watched a film that was not straight forward but was filmed in a very artisic way.
8/10

Title: Re: The Last Movie You Watched
Post by: Jon Evil on April 14, 2018, 01:57:28 PM
Flukt. (Escape) 2012. Norway.
 Simple plot of young lady kidnapped by robbers, escapes. Chase on foot begins.
 The bloke who directed did Tomb Raider, i can see why they imported him to make that movie.
 This one has no CGI and keep me interested.
 8/10

Rigor Mortis 2013
 A Hong Kong produced horror film, has all the standard 'aisan horror' fare you would expect but without any real creepy scares.
 It not straight forward like a westie horror and although there is alot of CGI, it helps the story evolves in conjunction with the different characters.
 9/10
Title: Re: The Last Movie You Watched
Post by: Jon Evil on April 29, 2018, 02:11:38 PM
El Infierno. (Hell) 2010
A Mexican film about the drug trade and the layers of corruption and wars the rival cartels have.
Two and half hours long, but for the complexities to be actually played it, worth it. Starts off kinda funny with lighter moments but the violence pops up more and more.
9/10.

Epitaph 2007.
 South Korea.
 A ghost story set in a hospital. Told via flashback with flashbacks inside that. It's an intense watch simply because you have to really pay attention to what is going on. It doesn't have jump scares or much gore, just alot of things that appear to be not related, that relate to each other and eventually come together. But you have to pay attention.
 7/10

Free Fire. 7/10

 Would i watch it again, probably not, but it is good for a first watch.

Angst. Austria. 1983. 8/10
 Read about this on Bloody Disgusting (http://bloody-disgusting.com/editorials/3503348/butcher-block-brutal-psycho-killer-home-invasion-angst-extreme/), they pick an extreme horror each week for a section called 'Butchers block'.
 The film was based on bloke called Werner Kniesek, i read a bit about him after i'd watched the film, on the whole, pretty acurate.
 A bloke is released from prison, does a home invasion that day and gets caught. The film has a monologue going over the whole thing with some quite long and interesting camera angles. It was banned at the time and never really got any traction after that.
 By todays horror the violence is meek, but paired up with the monologue, it's intense.
 Got a copy off torrent.

Incident in ghostland. 2018. 4.5/10
 When i read that Pascal Laugier (Martyrs) had made this film i was pretty excited, i watched the trailer, expectations were dulled a bit, read a couple of reviews, one praised it up the other trashed it.
 I was impressed with the story, it had the twists i would expect from a movie written by him, but...i just couldn't really like it. It was bleak and twisted, (awesome) but it just seemed, unlike his debut, the violence strayed into the terrority that is more in keeping with most American films. Torture. Nothing wrong with that, but it doesn't make the film worthy of a second watch.
 The film is a French/Canadian production.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66JuZ1cb03E

Don't breath. 2016. 6/10 Three burglers break into a blind mans house.
 Spoiler alert.
 When i read the reviews of this movie and saw the trailer, one thing was mentioned, 'there's a twist.' Instantly i thought, the blind guy will have a woman hostage. Sure enough. I was right. 45 mins in, and i reached for the remote. The tension was great at the start, the errie silence was awesome. But there seemed to be a whole bunch of things that were 'highlighted'. The dog while the were looking at the house, cue the dog at the end. The hammer when they first entered, the young guy and the hammer at the end. The gun under the bed, cue getting the gun when he runs out of bullets in the burglers one. Ugh-FUCK!!
 It was a good movie, but it just ran out steam. I was going to watch A quiet place, but im already of the opinion that it borrows alot from this film.
 
 Kinda shit having to read subtitles in order to watch, what i believe, is a decent film, but corprate studios seem to be getting more overseas filmakers to try and dress up the garbage there serving to the masses to get there money.
 Fede Alvarez. Evil dead. Uruguay.
 Roar Uthaug. Tomb raider. Norway

The Vengeance Trilogy. Dir. Park Chan Wook. South Korea.
 Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (2002) 6/10
 Oldboy (2003) 10/10
 Lady Vengeance (2005) 8/10
 The first was a little slow for the first half then the story started to fall into place and the 'revenge' aspect kicked in split equally between two of the characters.
 
 Oldboy iv seen twice already, it didn't really need much thought, you follow the main bloke while he figures out why he was imprisoned.
 Absolute garbage remake. 0 out of fucken 10 for that one.
 
The third one had alot of flashbacks at the start and kinda slowed down near the end. But was similar to the first in that you really had to watch what was presented.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6D0cjs2NW9whttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PArwr-HiU_Yhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzXbV9a5GA4

Mourning grave. South Korea. 9/10
 A young bloke whose sees ghosts has to confront a grudge.
 It has a really good and effective drama plot with elements of horror. The 'ghosts' are what you expect in a asian horror and there was a scene that reminded me The Wailing, another S.K. stunner. Everything came together nicely at the end. Can't fault it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTGfsOIhMbo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTGfsOIhMbo)
Villmark 2. (Wilderness 2) 2015. Norway. 7.5
 Five contract workers take on a job of tracking hazardous waste in an old sanatorium before demolishing.
 I haven't watched the first one which a group of people go to remote cabin. This time is a clean up crew in a abandonded hospital.
 The plot was...just really not there, but, ironicly, it established a creepy atmosphere early on and just slowly cranked it up. It used cameras set up to detect motion and noises/sounds repeatedly to create a real sense of dread.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeooSEbDB5I (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeooSEbDB5I)

 Wer. 2013 3/10
 A huge bloke is charged with murder.
 Interesting plot that failed get going, similar final act to the Nicholson, Spader film Wolf (1994). Hit the fast-forward button at the 37min mark and didn't stop till the end.
 The film can mostly be seen in the trailer, in fact, after just watching it again, this is a classic example of a 'preview' showing the whole fim.
 (Spoiler) Bloke shaving his head has final fight with werewolf, is bloke with glasses on, gets bit at start.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YC1DQsaKdgw
Ready player one. 2018. Garbage.
 Virtual reality with a load 'green screen'.
 The 'flatmate' decided we needed to "watch a movie together." I'd downloaded this for someone else. I lasted 40 mins and got bored, by 55 i was real angry about wasting my time, so i left the room. I flicked to Kubrick tribute on my laptop, lasted 2 seconds, couldn't be bothered. She came to see if i wanted to watch The Shinning part. She got a flat no.

Wristcutters. A love story. 2006. 8/10

 A black romantic comedy about suicide. Nice story with some funny moments, everything you'd expect in a rom-com.
 Probably wouldn't watch it again, but for a change of pace it was worth it.

Ŕ l'intérieur (Inside) [/b]2007. 10/10
 French home invasion.
 Watched this a few years ago and it was always in the back of my mind to see it again.
 It didn't disappoint, at all. A simple film, but loaded with suspense and violence.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEJVXgktgks
The Church. 1989. Italy. 7/10
 Co produced/written by Dario Argento. Directed by a long time assistant of Argento.
 It as a 'B-grade' feel about it, but a solid story. The effects are well done, and the film in general looks like a decent amount of thought have been put in to how scenes are actually filmed.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ts0zmKCiVvY
I saw the devil. 9/10 South Korea.
 Cat and mouse with humans.
 I'v seen two of the directors previous films, The good, the bad, the weird. A tale of two sisters. The second is better but this was alot simpler plot wise and alot more brutal.
 Having seen a few of these 'revenge' movies now, it's interesting how little they tread on each other.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwWgp1bqVwE

We are what we are. (Somos lo que hay) 2010. Mexico. 7/10
 A family of cannibals slowly go mad.
 The film is only 80 mins long and depicts a poor family sliding down at a slow pace due the loss of the father at the start. It is bleak and depressing to a degree, but each of the four main characters it set up differently. I saw it some years ago and enjoyed it, and i would rate it the same again.
 There was a american remake, i took a look at that trailer.
 Compared to the original.
 Garbage.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFO_qYqvnZo
The doll master. South Korea. 2004.
 6.5/10
 A group of people are invited to a house and killed one by one.
 The storyline is easy to follow with a drama/horror mix that does get more layered. The 'twists/reveals' are mainly in the second half but tie together nicely, probably not worth a 2nd watch.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Lr1W77xhH0
The Flu. 2013. South Korea. Didn't finish it.
 Infection rips thru a city, no zombies.
 It had the makings of a intense drama/disaster but after the first hour, and with a full second hour to go, it slowed right down and a heavy bureaucrat feel took over. I flicked thru some of the rest but it was dragging too much for me care. Long scenes of politicians and soliders arguing.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BvKZMg2LjU

De Palma. 2015 8/10
A doco with the director Brain De Palma talking by himself about the his career in film.
The film is basicly a conversation with De Palma intercut with the films he has made as he talks about them.
Interesting that he doesn't fit in with the 'Hollywood mold' even thou he is, as he says early on, the same era as Spielberg, Coppola, Scorsese and Lucas. De Palma is lighthearted and explains his the way his movies are filmed and what happened as a result.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97XoMjwoZ5w
Bedevilled. 2010. South Korea. 9/10
 A slow burn film, that falls into the 'revenge' genre they do incredibly well.
 It all tied together, and the 2nd half was nice and bloody.
 An intense watch that left me happy and sad.

Euthanizer (Armomurhaaja). 2017 Finland. 7/10
 A strange black comedy/drama about mercy killing, an old bloke does pet killing along side vehicle repairs, the film evolves from there, the characters all have a shade of death about them, so any moments of humour are fleeting. It's basic in some of it's plot but ties up well at the end.
 Uncomfortably satisfying some it up for me.
 I got a copy off torrent, but it had french subs hardcoded, i still watched it with english over them and enjoyed it.

 Nekromatik. Germany. 1987. 7/10
A film with a interesting soundtrack, not a lot of dialouge, bad acting, and a notorious reputation.
People read about it, probably think one thing and then it's completly flipped if they watch it.
It has alot of dream scenes and whole parts where its just quiet or piano. I like the surreal factor of it and not having watched it for a few years i think its a solid film that makes think about what the hell is being presented.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6bJwvD2qrQ

Deadpool 2. 2/10
Rubbish.
Downloaded for a collegue at work, flicked thru the 2 hour run time is 30 mins and didn't think i really missed anything.
Some of the parts i watched were funny, but im glad i didn't sit down to try and suffer thru it.

Nekromantik 2 Germany. 1991. 6/10
 Having read reviews of this a few years ago, i knew that it didn't have quite the 'impact' of the first one. It picks up where it left off, and has alot of similar traits as the first. Not much dialouge, interesting soundtrack, and a notorious reputation. Better acting.
 Just over 111 minutes compared to 75 for the first one. I got kinda bored by the 70min mark and flicked thru a couple of the longer scenes.
 Overall, it didn't fuck around at the start but soon slowed down, the ending was pretty unique but really a film that works if you have seen the first one and actually liked it like i did.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOPslvrzfvs

Audition. Japan. 1999.
10/10
A superb drama/thriller about a man who does a fake audition for a movie and falls for a mystery woman.The last 30mins are when the horror kicks in, but it is restrained and respectful of the overall tone of the film. Well worth the reputation as a Asian classic.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhsrsWcEspc (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhsrsWcEspc)

The Outlaws. 2017. South Korea. 6/10
A 'based on...' crime bust in 2004. Complicated but a good crime drama, stars the 'dad-to-be' actor from Train to Busan as a tough cop.
After i'd lost track of some plot threads, I was still entertained by the two main characters to continue.
The fight scenes were well done.

Eraserhead. 1977.
 8/10
 David Lynch is a director whose T.V./films iv largely ignored. Eraserhead iv watched twice now, fine piece of 'endurance' cinema. To try and think about the 'plot' of the movie is to remember what largely went over my head and served only to confuse me, i recognise elements of plot, but are just enjoying the ride with a strong coffee to stay awake.

Caligula. 1979
 4/10
 Saw this years ago and thought it was alright. Then i read about this short doco, Mission Caligula. I heard lengthy interviews with the two main people, Alex and Kelly about the whole mess that was post production. I tried to rewatch it the other night and after 90 min was largely bored. It would be interesting to see a true cut of the film.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLX9JOXdaaM&t=29s

 Dario Argento film. One of The Three Mothers trilogy. The 1st was Suspiria, i watched that last year and felt it didn't really live up to the hype.

Goodnight mommy. Austria. 20148/10
A creepy psychological thriller with a small cast and limited sets.Pegged for a remake, good luck with that. The film is quiet and subtle, there are clues dropped in through out but you would really have to pay attention to see it and pick what happens. Reminded me alot of A tale of two sisters. Similar idea but pegged back.I watched an 'ending explained' video that was helpful.Overall, pretty good film.

The nun. France, 1966.6/10
Not the pile of shit people to stupid to read reviews of are watching now.
A young woman is sent to a convent against her will.Based a novel by Denis Diderot, died 1768. It's 2.5 hours long and is gives a not to flattering view of religious life.
It wasn't boring but the plot was fairly oppressive, social standing and class are explained at the start so you are aware as the viewer that if Suzanne (the nun) gets out there'll be no 'happy ending' for her. And there isn't.It goes thru a series of events involving a lawyer, a court hearing, three different mother superiors and a priest that helps her near the end. But there is still a sense of forboding doom about the whole thing.A interesting film that hammers home certain points about life in general.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kD5Au1sJmjc&t=5s

Black '47. Ireland. 2018.8.5/10Set in the spud famine of 1847, a Irish solider comes back from fighting for the British in Afghanistan.It's a 'revenge' film set in a real historical time. Because of the use of one-shot-muskets there is a distinct lack of 'bullets flying'.The film is quiet and simple, but builds to a quiet but brutal ending.

Hotel Artemis. 2018
2/10
By the look of the trailer i 'thought' it might be low budget action with a decent cast, the idea seems to be taken straight from the John Wick films. A safe house hotel where crims can go.
The J.W. films were diet-light on plot but at least they entertained with alot of action.
Not this. It's really just a drama, and not a very convincing one. Again got to the 45 min mark and hit the FF button.

Don't worry, he won't get far on foot. 2018 Dir. Gus Van Sant
4/10
Bio-pic of a paralyzed cartoonist John Callahan’s autobiography. Joaquin Phoenix as John, with Jonah Hill.
Hill is good as the softly spoken AA sponsor and Phoenix as the wheelchair bound cartoonist. I was bored by the 45 min mark and started hitting off the FF button, the bulk of the story was 'John' becoming a cartoonist and his therapy sessions in AA that became a drawn out process.
Last years You Were Never Really Here also produced by Amazon was a much better.

Heavy trip. Finland. 2018.10 outta fucking 10!!!The ultimate metal comedy.The plot is simple and kinda predictable, but the humour is really fucken solid which makes the film. I found myself laughing out loud most of the way thru it. If your not a metal fan some of the references will be lost and the music is pure death metal. But the film has enough in it that anyone could be entertained.It was fun to see the T-shirts, the band references, the George 'corpsegrinder' Fisher head-banging style.This is a movie i will re-watch again, and will enjoy.

The night eats the world. France.3/10A single actor zombie movie. No subtitles.The tension is there is for the first 20+ mins then it becomes a 'how to manage alone' film. By the magical 40 min mark i had the remote in my hand was content to F.F. to the end. The marjority of the film is focused on just the one bloke in a building, but he doesn't make any attempt to go anywhere. Reminded me a 2010 german zombie film, Rammbock. Shorter in length with more characters and also set in a building. The plot was alot better.

A vampire drama.The first time i tried to watch i fell asleep at the one hour mark, run time is 2hrs, since then iv watched a few other South Korean/asian films.It's a slow burn with the main focus a priest turned vampire. Not a alot of gore or violence, a bunch of people do die, but not overly gruesome. The film has a few layers to it that slowly come to the surface. Not for everyone, but iv seen 7 of his movies now and i would rate them all pretty highly.

The blacksmith and the devil.  2018.
8/10
Based a fable and made into a decent movie.
The version i got was off Netflix so even thou the trailer has subtitles the netflix one doesn't, it's overdubbed with using american actors.
Kinda draft, but it does mean you can focus a bit more on the great scenery. Most of it seemed to be actual sets, except for a few scenes near the end, but that was understandable.
The plot was complex enough to be interesting, not confusing.
Basicly, a blacksmith sells his soul and hold the demon hostage. From there its layers up but kept me interested but not bored.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JL_cvyZjlc4

Carved. The slit mouthed woman. Japan  2007.
6.5/10
A 'evil sprit' story.
Kinda low budget, with a basicly scary woman. The main theme of the film is domestic physical child abuse. The story is well written and explains it self. There aren't any really good scares like some jap horror, but it does have some 'uncomfortable' moments.
Worth a look if you are a fan of asian horror and don't mind subtitles.

Les Demons. 1973. France.
6/10
Nuns are tortured in a dungeon of horrors after being possessed by demons.
After giving up on a film called The Dark within 10 mins, i started to watch this old french film.
Some of the scenes, which can be seen in the trailer, look like there straight out of a porn shoot. There were a range of these films being made at the time, Justine, based on the De Sade novel made in 1969, that was over the top in its abuse, but not as brutal as Salo made in 1975. So i knew what i was in for.
Overall, entertaining but not really rewatchable.

The trailer has been dubbed into german.

The tag along. 2015. Taiwan.6/10.Based on a urban legend that is referenced in the film, but only briefly.Not quite the 'standard' asian horror that recycled dead women with long black hair, this has a little girl in a red dress.Creepy at the start with sounds and movements but after a while it's not too surprising. Near the end there is a significant pile up of CGI that works OK. The story is layered and keep me interested. There is a sequel. Not interested.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMiX8FDLdoU

The Meg. 2018.
 Unrateable pile of shit.
 I had a few things i wanted to sort out and instead of trying to watch a decent movie, i put this on in the background.
 Wow. What a load of CGI garbage. Im glad i downloaded it for someone else as it was never on my list of films to watch.
 Statham plays a 'typical' hero type, but comes across as SOOO fucken cheesy it's strange, he sticks out prouder than a honeymooners dick compared to the rest of the cast. It was laughable when at times when it was supposed to be serious, if that was possible, i rolled ny eyes so many times i thought i was going to get a headache.
 
 Let the right one in. 2008. Sweden
 7/10
 A drama about a vampire and a little boy.
 Slow and steady but really engaging. Even thou it has elements of horror, the storys focus is the vampire and the boy. A nice film that doesn't have loads of edited shots. There was the inevitable 'remake' because people are to lazy to read. I took a look at the final scene.
 Compared to the original it was word for word, but rammed a lot more tension in. Won't be watching that.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICp4g9p_rgo

Where the buffalo roam. 1980.

Bill Murray does Hunter S. Thomson.
The first film biography of Hunter S Thomson portrayed by Bill Murray, with his lawyer by Peter Boyle. I couldn't really watch it with thinking of Fear and Loathing by Terry Gilliam. It was funny in parts but didn't fully embrace the madness and actually show Hunter trashed on drugs. The film jumped ahead a few years but overall was faithfull to the man.
Fear & L. is much better film simply because of the excess and it stuck to the book.

Struggling writer, old hitman.
A funny movie about a young bloke who signs his own death warrent because he has failed to kill himself. Kinda predictable, but amusing with some LOL moments. A solid black comedy about life and death. Not really a film i'd watch again. But i found myself laughing alot.

A horny priest and a bunch of fucked up nuns.
Oliver Reed and Vannesa Redgrave do some solid acting in the film by Ken Russell. A piece at the start says its based on true events and figures. A full on drama with lots of politics and religion wound in together. The sets, costumes and screenplay are pretty good and although its now over 40 years old, it's a good reminder of how things were.

Liverleaf. Japan 2018
Bullying=sadistic revenge.
7.5
A film that was strong on a school bullying/revenge theme. The acting was a little subpar but quite believable enough. The gore effects were mostly practical and pretty good. The CGI that was in the film, was mostly falling snow, fire, and some blood. All nicely done, which validates my criticism of CGI bullshit blockbusters that rely on effects over plot.
The story itself unwinds as it goes, it seems simple at the start, girl is picked on, gets revenge one person at a time. But as it continues it becomes more multi layered.
Fans of asian cinema or just subtitled movies should give it a watch, i went in without watching the trailer and was thankful for it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxHcU-vz1to

Lizzie. 2018.
6/10
Iv never read a full case study of the Borden murders, but iv seen the crime scene photos, read summarys and watched The Lizzie Borden Chronicles starring Christina Ricci. Entertaining, but entirely fictional.
This film goes over the 6 months before the murders. It presents an account of what probably happened.
It builds slowly, skips the murders, but revisits them in flashback. The ending has a series of short written statements that detail where everyone ended up. It's not a 'exciting' movie, but would fall solidly as a drama, with aspects of a thriller during the murders.

Drawing up a little sketch i put D.B.H. on for something to listen to and sorta watch. I finished what i wanted at the end of the film and even thou i haven't seen it since i first watched it in a cinema, it still was amusing.
One thing that was noticable was the limited use of effects.
In the early '90s 'green screen' could only be applied to little parts, so it was more of a novelty that added to the film instead of making up whole scenes. The film as a whole is simple but funny with alot of practical effects and sets. If it hadn't been made back then, there is no way it would be considered today.

The house that Jack built. 2018. Dir. Lars von Trier.
8/10.
New age American Psycho.
Iv never seen a Lars von Trier film so this was new for me. Well, what an experience that was. 2 and half hours of following 'Jack' as he goes thru five 'incidents'. Throughout the entire movie there is a dialouge between Jack and 'Verge' over the top.
The reviews i read of it were kinda mixed, and one said, "This is a pure Lars movie." Yeah, it definitely looked like one mans vision.
There was alot of images of paintings and WW2 death camp footage in it along with just crazy dialouge that was hard to keep up with at times.
The 'controversy' about the duckling scene and the woman and kids being hunted seemed overblown when seen in the context of the actual film. He's a fucken serial killer. The film was disturbing, and i applaud it for that. At times i felt creeped out. Not scared like watching a good horror, just 'uughh!!' at some of the things that happened. (When he shoots a woman in the back to finish her off).
Overall the film keep me interested and engaged, i did look at the running time at one point and groaned to myself that i still had a hour to go. But i wasn't bored and even found myself laughing at a few points.
The house that Jack does build, is a fucking masterpiece.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYF2tfdD1fA&t=17s

A solid ghost film from Argentina that deals with an investigation of a paranormal event.
Within the first 10 mins i was hooked and the movie delivered. The 'ghost hunters' weren't scaredy types and they were in three seperate locations with added a really good tension. The film has a flashback at the start to show what happened to one of the neighbours but it wasn't confusing.

Slow burn drama that builds till the last 15-20 minutes of the film. There are no 'explosions' of violence, but it does have a 'horror' ending of sorts. The main plot is a failing relationship with outside affairs on both sides. There is some scenes of bumping uglies, and it tended to more of a realistic nature than the garbage dished up in mainstream film.

The film kept my interest simply because of the way the scenes were filmed. It makes you think about what is being presented, but the message was blunt.

From the director of The Host. A mother investigates a murder that her son has been connected to.
A crime drama that really twists and turns, a stunning thriller that is unpredictable and left me wondering why the fuck do i watch these South Korean movies.
Because they are actually REALLY GOOD. The plot couldn't be predicated. The 'mother' in the film runs a small herb shop and cares for her slightly stupid son. Not big on action, just layers of story. There were lots of 'clues' through out the film, but it only came together right at the end.

RAW meets Carrie.
A very sterile physco-drama about a young lady, going off to Uni and then finding out that she has some sort of supernatural power.
She has seizures which cause her surroundings to react. It's a nearly two hour movie that in the first half is her realizing she's a leso, and the second half dealing with the power she has. It was a slow film, right from the start, that was engaging but testing as there was really no action or anything. The film remained steady. Reminded me of Let the right one in even thou that was Swedish it had a similar quietness about it.
There is going to be a remake.

This was uploaded to Amazon streaming, much the film makers disgust. It was taken down, but the torrents have got it.
The first 30 mins is a non-stop-one-take. Impressive given how much they mover around and the effects that are done.
From there is jumps back a month to 'explain' how the whole idea is born. The final result was really funny and well thought out.

This film is based on a true story about a reporter who got a taxi driver to him to the heart of the civil uprising in southern South Korea.
It starts kinda funny but soon loses that when they realize people are being beaten and shot. Standard drama plot points are checked off and although it is more heavy handed in some parts it felt more like a western style drama film.
Entertaining, but nothing really special.

The satanic rites of Dracula. 1973

Even thou it's a "Hammer" produced film, it still has an impressive seriousness about it. Peter Cushing could really sell the part.
The story itself was kinda lame but the scenes and settings carried it through as a 90 min budget horror.

Tetsuo. The Iron Man.

5/10
A cult classic of a bloke who slowly turns into a thing of iron. Strange plot, but the effects were pretty good. Near the end there was alot of stop motion which blended in really well.
The director edited it himself, and it shows, fast paced while alot of strange edits.

A slow physco/drama about a poor farming kid.
The film really only focuses on three people. Others pop in and out but the focus remains the trio. It's simple enough, but by the end it was interesting to notice that it made me wonder who was real or not.

Climax. 2018.
Director Gaspar Noe
4/10Fame directed by the Marquis de Sade with a steadicam.
The 2002 film Irreversible is the only other movie iv seen by Gasper, and this is kinda on similar ground. Long steady cam shots, brightly lit hallways, the camera swinging around and following one person then another. The scenes themselves are well done, from the 5 min opening dance number to the way the steady cam shots when everyone is tripping.
But that wore thin after a while and the 'music' although it was background never seemed to stop.
Some brutal moments, but they were far and few.
Overall it bombards the viewer with light, sound, movement and really no plot.

Force Maeure/Turist. 2014
9/10
A drama/comedy, thou there wasn't really much of the later, about a couple and there two children who witness an avalanche while in having lunch in a ski resort, he runs off with out them. The rest of the film goes into the breakdown of there relationship. as the husband struggles to accept that he couldn't 'protect' his family.
It's a good example of a 'What would you do?' situation. The film itself had little to no soundtrack and long scenes of dialouge,  the scenes were long and not edited every three seconds.
Sadly, there is a remake in the works.
Fucken hell.

I downloaded this for a workmate, based on a young adult novel.
Pete Jackson and fellow writers did the script. I was drawing up a transfer for a print so i was only kinda paying attention to it. The story moved rather quickly and just seemed to power on regardless. The whole thing seemed very lightweight and coming from a Y.A. novel it really showed. I stopped it after an hour, flicked to end and didn't care.

Crazy old Vincent.
A 'bio pic' about Vincent Van Gogh starring William Dafoe. The camera is hand-held and very shaky but it works in with the performance of Dafoe. He is much older than Van Gogh but really does a good job presenting the artist as a driven, somes manic painter.
The colours of the film itself reflect his paintings and although it only captures the end of his life, it presents it a heartfelt way.

Siamese twins horror.
Like most asian films, it slowly layered up as the story went along. The 'jump scares' were set up with the rising volume of music which didn't help much. I was reaching for the remote by the one hour mark but I'm glad i didn't FF thru to the end because there was pretty good twist. South Korea still reigns supreme, Japan then Thailand.

We are the flesh. Mexico.
10/10
Having just watched the film, i can say i really have know idea what the fuck was going on, but i was totally taken in by it.
There are just three central characters, for the most part. A brother, sister, 'homeless' bloke.
I would have to watch/read an analysis to have any idea about what was actually going on it was that weird. But it took several taboo subjects, broke then up and force-fed them to the audience. It was more 'arthouse' film than a regular by the numbers and that in the end really made the film.
It fits in with the films from Mexico like Here comes the devil and We are what we are.
This one was more edgy it in a good fucked up way.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otYBglOyHtw

A slow burn crime drama involving a cop who was involved in a sting years earlier.
Nicole Kidman is good in the role as a gritty burned out cop. The first hour is slow and i began to wonder, but when the 2nd hour kicked in so did the movie. It wasn't high action but the plot started to make alot of sense. The film jumps back and forth in time but it makes sense.
A review i read compared to it The French Connection and a comment on a podcast said it was like a South Korean film. Both of which i would agree with.

Clergy. 2018. Poland.
6/10
The film follows three priests and certain circumstances that they find themselves in. The trailer gives it a comedy kind of feel but that is only at the start when the are drinking. After that they don't interact with other. It has three different levels to it, each dealing which a different priest, one is doing alright, one has a pregnant mistress and the last is accused of child abuse. The tone of the movie depicts the church as very much looking after it self at the expense of the parish. It was just over two hours and maybe could have been cut a bit.
Overall it's good film, but pretty scathing of the church in general and the ways it manipulates the people, business and media.

A 76min black and white horror about a woman and her desire not to be alone.
Some of the best horrors are debut films, this is another example. Spoken in portuguese and english its a simple film with a limited cast that tells the story of a young girl/woman.
The composition of the scenes was thought out as to be disturbing without being stupidly gorey, the plot with the central character was sad but chilling. The B/W was a great touch as most of it was set at night.

Didn't happen. I got an hour in to it and turn it off, flicked thru it on my laptop the next day and was glad that i did stop it.
It was co-written, directed by Peter Farrelly who directed Kingpin in '96 which is it good film, then a list of, really just braindead comedies.
Look them up.
It still had that element of stupidness to it, just in a mature form. The story was nice but really fucken simple.

Anime isn't something iv watched alot of, but this didn't have any fantastical creatures in it. The film is a psychological horror that does get fairly complicated in the last 30 mins. But it does it with a clear purpose. Strange film, but very engaging and not a simplistic pile of shit.

Welcome to the sticks. 2008. France.
7/10
A lighthearted comedy about a post office manager who wants a transfer south but gets sent north instead. The plot is funny and for the most part revolves around the different way they 'northerners' talk. Being it's subtitled it was hard to read at first, the jokes really do rely on understanding french. As the film progressed it became less about the speech and more the situation with his wife back down south.
Enjoyable and interesting.

A 'prequel' to Train to Busan, but animated.
There is quite a story in this film and it doesn't take long to get used to the animation. As with all South Korean films it really well written and delivers a gut punch of a movie.
If you'v seen Train... this is worth the time to seek out. the horror and 'gore' factor of the zombies are dialed back a bit but it delivered for a me, a tense, exciting drama, funny in small parts but yet another example of why S.K. make the best horror.

Dans ma peau. (In my skin) France. 2004.
10/10
The film follows a woman who works in a high level corprate postion that, basicly, becomes a self harmer.
She feels no pain and through out the film cut and mutilates herself in more extreme ways. It had an arty kinda look and tone to it which appealed to me, some of the later scenes were nice and tense but didn't show much of the cutting, that was seen in the start and middle.
RAW, another french film relased in 2016 seems to have borrowed elements from this film. But in that was a 'coming of age' film.

7/10
This was the third time i put this film on and i finally got thru it.
It's been put the the 'French extreme' group of films, i can kinda see why, but the storyline is vauge and distant.
The violence is mainly linked in with sex and revolves around cannibalism, it's artfully done but does convey an intense vibe.
Other than that it is really hard to understand what the fuck is going on.
The stand out actress is Beatrice Dalle. She says next to nothing, but is the female cannibal who has to be locked up.
Inside, another film she's in where she was the villian was amazing. Really worth it!!!!.
This one, not so much.

Us.4/10.Interesting, but mostly boring. The film had the main horror set pieces you would expect to find in most 'hollywood' films.Story wise, it had a interesting twist, but that was literally in the last few minutes and it never explained how or why the red suited people existed. If it did on some 'deeper' level, i missed it and don't care. My brother and i saw it in a theater, when i asked him what he would rate it out of ten, 5.5-6 was his answer. He doesn't watch as many movies as i do and certainly not ones with subtitles.Which is what ill be sticking in the future.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tzFRIQfwXg

Cinderella. 2006. South Korea.
6/10
More drama than horror, but some creepy parts.
The story evolves slowly but centers around a female plastic surgeon. She does procedures on her daughters friends and a 'evil spirit' is killing or just menacing them. The flashback half way thru provides the info as to why and then the film moves more into the drama.
Complicated but interesting.

I listened to a few short spoiler podcasts about Us today, it kinda filled in the blanks after i tuned out of the film. Thinking about it now it doesn't entirely change my opinion of the film, but when it gets explained who the reds are was right at the end.
Jorden Peel did do a good job on the film, but he is writing the remake of Candyman, it'll be a shame if he laces it with humour.

An outstanding phone call thriller.
A cop who has a courtcase with him as the defendant the next day is on emergency call duty. He gets a call from a woman who says she has been kidnapped.
The film deals mainly with him, the other officers in the area only have very limited dialouge. The film is just under 90 mins, and it's perfect. The main story unfolds thru a series of phone calls and how 'Asger', the cop, makes decisions about what to say and who to call.
The trailer doesn't quite do the film justice.

A really funny black comedy about a family that buys a lodge at the foot of a mountain and has to deal with people dying.
It was directed by Kim Jee-Woon who went on to direct A tale of two sisters and I saw the devil. Both good movies, 'I saw' being a stunner. The story starts with the first guy killing himself and them getting rid of the body. From there they keep piling up. But it's not a case of them covering up. There was a couple of loose ends but it really didnt matter, it was the way things evolved that kept me laughing.

A series of three different stories, no connection.
The first is a woman tricked into becoming a whore. 2nd is a guy who loves a woman who gets aroused by disfigured men. 3rd is a Lord who is a sadist and has a version of payback at the end.
Each one seemed to get a bit more 'intense', the effects were good, given that it was filmed in 1969. But the stories themselves were well written they had twists that couldn't be predicted and weren't over the top.
Not something i'd probably watch again, but enjoyable.

I am a hero. 2016. Japan.
8/10
This zombie comedy starts quietly and within the first 30 mins it cranks up the humour and gore. The effects have to be mentioned.
They are fucken great throughout.
With a 2 hour run time, it's a bit of a stretch. It slows when they meet fellow 'survivors' and the dynamics of the group are limited to just a few people. But it does a good job of making the characters believeable. The laughs were a bit more spaced out but the film as a whole was still interesting. The effects were stand out.

Creepy. 2016. Japan.

I was looking at the movie 'Pulse' from 2001 (the original, not the remake.) and saw the director had done this film only a few years ago.
The run time is just over two hours, and i was very happy with what i got. The first hour slowly sets up the case and the main players. Hints are dropped and its in the second hour that things get 'creepy' really fucken creepy.
It doesn't wind up to a fast pace like a 'western' style crime thriller would but stays with a slow dread, that just increases.
Fans of asian horror/thriller shouldn't pass this up.
