69% Savage Weekend (1979) - Nov 12, 2018
"Gotta love classic slasher flicks - in fact this one is so classic that it predates the 80s slasher boom! Every female character gets naked over and over and over again, which is terrific. To quote TV Guide’s review: "A truly reprehensible exploitation film... Ultra-low-budget and shot on grainy color stock, the film is borderline pornography, and the gore effects are extremely gruesome." Yessss"
82% Hoosiers (1986) - Nov 08, 2018
"It’s the damndest thing - I’m not interested in sports, I don’t like playing sports, I don’t like watching sports on TV, I don’t really like attending sporting events... yet I really like underdog sports movies. What’s that all about?"
42% I Kill Giants (2017) - Nov 07, 2018
"It's a pretty well-made and well-acted dramatic tale about a troubled child going crazy to escape her depressing life, but I admit that I kind of clicked play on this when I saw it on Hulu hoping for, like, an actual fantasy movie and not some kind of Where the Wild Things Are-esque metaphor thing, so that left me a bit nonplussed."
69% Big (1988) - Nov 06, 2018
"Just rewatched for the first time in at least ten, maybe fifteen years. It’s only intermittently truly funny and has all kinds of weird implications (like the hero making Elizabeth Perkins into an unwitting statutory rapist?!!) - but it’s also undeniably cute and charming and whimsical and kind of quietly iconic in a lighthearted 80s way. For some reason the first bit with the computer game with the ice wizard is one of the most amusing bits to me. But the piano scene is more famous."
69% Night of the Demons (1988) - Nov 04, 2018
"Impressively nutso 80s haunted house/zombie/demon possession flick with plenty of cheese and gore and nudity to go around. Also, the black guy lives to the end!"
27% He Knows You're Alone (1980) - Nov 04, 2018
"A cheapo Halloween knockoff shot in two weeks and probably most noted these days for Tom Hanks’ screen debut in a very small role in a couple scenes. Perhaps slightly differentiated from other Halloween knockoffs in that the characters are actually all in their twenties instead of being teens and its delightfully cheesy-ass electronic keyboard soundtrack. Ultimately it is still full of seemingly suicidal characters making stunningly dumb decisions though."
13% Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (1992) - Oct 27, 2018
"I am just not that into this series, although the club massacre scene was amusing."
4% Psycho (1998) - Oct 26, 2018
"Have you ever been watching Hitchcock’s Psycho and said to yourself “I like this movie but I just wish that this was in artless color, Norman Bates was really miscast and jacked off, there were weird nonsensical cutaways of nature during the murders and they showed more of the car dragging at the end”? then boy oh boy have i got some good news for u"
69% Psycho IV: The Beginning (1990) - Oct 23, 2018
"Anthony Perkins and Olivia Hussey both do a great job, and Henry Thomas And CCH Pounder are pretty good too. Overall I thought this was an interesting and reasonably convincing imagining of Norman’s pre-Psycho 1 days. While the original is obviously the best by some distance I’ve enjoyed my journey through the Psycho sequels and think that it deserves to be thought of as a horror “franchise” just as Halloween, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, etc. "
27% Prom Night (1980) - Oct 20, 2018
"Pretty generic 80s teen slasher - extra point for the ludicrous, overlong and hilarious disco dance sequence in the middle of the movie."
