Bio: I'm going to fudge my rankings and uprank movies that are my actual favorites. My favorite movies are rarely the best in craft. And while one of my favorites may be the expertly crafted The Godfather, I'm not going to be using this unique opportunity to recommend you something you already know you should see. If you were waiting for me personally to convince you to watch Seven Samurai, you have put too much pressure on a guy that likes Michael Dudikoff films. I had previously given Ravenous an 86 when in reality it's a 75 tops. Now it's a 100. Welcome to my recommendations.

|60 T4||House at the End of the Street (2012) - 05 Dec 2023
"The hidden room in the basement of the house at the end of the street on the edge of the county line but in a different county's voting district because of gerrymandering."
|49 T2||The Last House on Dead End Street (1977) - 05 Dec 2023
"There was danger in 70's filmmaking that has never been able to be replicated and this is a prime example where you almost want to do research after watching it to make sure nobody was actually harmed. Like Eaten Alive there's a snuff mist over everything. Forget doesthedogdie dot com and try dotheactorsdie dot com. Taking everything just said into account, I think I still recommend this to those that haven't already figured out it's not for them."
|54 T3||Wrong Turn 2: Dead End (2007) - 04 Dec 2023
"A movie like this doesn't have a high bar so you take what you get and this didn't mangle anything up other than meat grinder kills but that's an appropriate mangling."
|65 T5||Dead End (2003) - 04 Dec 2023
"The real dead end is trying to take a path towards hating Ray Wise. This is pretty much just him in a car dealing with family and creep store supernatural entities and that's exactly how I'd sell it and why I'd recommend it."
|80 T9||The Handmaiden (2016) - 01 Dec 2023
"A Tale of Two Scissors"
|61 T4||Tales of Halloween (2015) - 01 Dec 2023
"Watched it with a fresh set of eyes (as in not my own) and it delivered enough vicariously to warrant a middling review as you've found yourself tricked into reading now."
|73 T8||The Lodger (1944) - 30 Nov 2023
"Very impressed with this both visually and with the performances. There is a creep factor to Laird Cregar that almost penetrates you through the screen. You can cut the tension in the air anytime he's confronted with the actress niece and I found myself mesmerized by it. As the capper of a Lodger fourfer this was my favorite of the bunch by a long shot."
|59 T4||The Lodger (1927) - 30 Nov 2023
"After another lady vanishes in a frenzy, a mysterious stranger takes board at a house, but is he the notorious psycho or the wrong man? As he looks out from behind a torn curtain through the rear window, downstairs they're spellbound with suspicion, but hesitant to dial m for murder until there isn't a shadow of a doubt. And then, wouldn't you know it, he, uh, he has to walk somewhere and the direction of that somewhere is north by northwest. Yeah, that didn't go on too long."
|50 T3||The Lodger (2009) - 29 Nov 2023
"This is fine but could barely even lodge itself into my memory."
|52 T3||The Lodgers (2017) - 29 Nov 2023
"Great atmosphere unless like every living creature you need more than atmosphere when being told a story. The story itself is weird and confusing with a set of Gremlins rules in place that makes it uncomfortably obvious the writers are teasing incestuous undertones. It lends itself to pretty good imagery towards the end and ... well, atmosphere. You're gonna want to be in the mood for atmosphere."
