3/10 … I’m a sucker for movies dealing with the occult and Satanism, if it’s done in a good way and the screenwriter has knowledge of the topic. But when it’s made by someone who just has a fleeting interest in the topic and get all the important details wrong, it shows and it’s unbearable …
I have no idea why Netflix makes it so hard to browse the different genres on their site. I started to look into it when it wanted to find movies from smaller countries in South America or the Middle-East but couldn’t in any easy way. Netflix will only recommend specific movies and genres if you’ve […]
Deep red was a classic horror magazine and Chas Baluns (1948–2009), baby. An icon in horror journalism. He wrote for both Fangoria and Gorezone before he released his own magazine, or fanzine might be the correct way to describe the first issues. Balun started to write during the horror movie heydays in the early 1980’s digging deep […]
7/10 … This is probably the biggest horror movie podcast out there, with a lot of guests appearing on the show. Every show usually starts with each hosts going through what they have seen lately, and then goes to a guest. I find it most interesting when the hosts discuss movies on their own, but of course some guests are very interesting. Sometimes they go through a top 5 or 10 list of their favourites within a topic and that’s almost always awesome.
10/10 … Amazing documentary about life in New York 1977. This is my #1 place I would go to if I knew how to time travel. I have always loved decadence, it gives me for some reason the feeling of being alive. Here we get to take a trip through the evolution of Hip Hop, with among others KRS-One and Afrika Bambaataa, through porn star Annie Sprinkle and the XXX live shows on 42nd street. The disco scene, the gay scene, the grafitti movement, the serial killer Son of …..
8/10 … It all starts with an opening scene with tribal people sacrificing a young western girl, when the military come to her aid (too late). It’s apparent that they were not shot at the same time. The tribal part where it’s night time and when the soldiers sneak around the jungle it’s daytime. This is followed by …
6/10 … I asked on a movie forum if anyone had some recomendation about movies with weirdos living inside the walls in other peoples houses or similar. I got recommended this one. Don’t know how I missed this one , it has my favourite creepy guy Klaus Kinski in the lead. And sure he is creepy here, proberly the creepiest I have ever seen him, just wonderful! It has a made-for-TV feeling, and I can’t find any information if it was ever released on the big screen. Although there are real bonkers stuff in thi….

If I could time travel, sleaze New York 1970-1984 is definitely on my top 10 list. There’s something about that decadence that fits me perfectly. William Lustig lived and worked through it all so this interview on episode 50 of Killer POV (Now Shock Waves) down below is simply amazing. …
6/10 … I have to admit, movies before the death of the hippies (pre-1968) is usually not for me. I have a hard time getting sucked into them since the acting is usually very theatrical with big gestures and an unnatural way to speak. The faces are usually light up so it looks like they have been close to a nuclear plant accident for a week. People playing drunk act like if I told a 5 year old to act like he was drunk, so again ”overacting”. Music who writes me on the noose telling me what emotions to feel is not my cup of tea either…
So on this page I collect Movies/TV Shows I didn’t finish … because you know, life’s too short! I have so many movies and TV shows I want to see so I don’t have time looking through an entire movie that starts out bad.
5/10 … I’m a sucker for when animals attack horror, but this one didn’t really hit the right spots.
I have always wondered if the people making these movies are trying to make them scary … and fail or if they just want to make something campy. I mean here we even have a score that sound like it’s been taken from “Jaws”.
The storyline about an evil company dumping toxic wayste takes up a little bit too much of the screen time. It’s not why we came to watch the movie. We came for the crocodile, and the crocodile itself looks pretty good, but they should have shown it for shorter periods since it’s side movements isn’t the best. Also the eyes is a hard fail.
8/10 … “Lo squartatore di New York” or better known as ”New York Ripper” was one out of 3 horror movies that was the first ones that I ever saw. We sneaked home, to a friend’s house during lunch break in school and his big sister had these. The other ones were Friday the 13th Part III, and one more that I’m still looking for. I can only remember one scene in it where a man pushed down someones head into the car engine or fan belt (and no it’s not ”Madman”)
I just love the mean spirit of this one, raw and brutal kills and with sleazy New York 42nd street/TimeSquare as it’s backdrop. The only things that prevent me from giving this a full score is the killers f**kin duck voice and that I think the ”horny woman” has a little bit too much focus on her and lengthy scenes, although refreshing to see a female going after her sexual urges and fantasies. I also just love the Detective Williams character, he’s smoking in the autopsy room and is having a relationship with a prostitute. Don’t think that would get by with todays correctness.
As some of you know, Lucio Fulci is my absolute favourite director, and New York Ripper I would put on 3rd place among his movies, only topped by his ”The Beyond” and 1979’s ”Zombie”.
Here I collect every short review I have made on Horror movies. To see another genre look at the index page.
I’m the type of persons who hates spoilers, I more or less never watch trailers and don’t want to know anything about the movie more than the basic plot. So in that vein is also my reviews. They are more of short things that maybe can wake someones interest and make them discover the movie for themselves.
10/10 … You could put this movie in the Sci-Fi, Comedy, Coming-of-Age or the Horror category, but to me this is just a perfect movie and I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s fun, it has some scares, it’s fast paced and even do the kids that the movie is about, are obnoxious little shits, you get to like them. A really original script and it seems strange to me that it took the director, Joe Cornish 8 years before he made another movie. The lovely Jodie Whittaker (as Sam) is just amazing and the always funny Nick Frost kills it.
