Movie/TV Reviews

Here you have an overview of everything TV/movie related that I have reviewed. Movies, TV shows, books about film, film podcasts and so on.

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.

I have also made some short reviews on the awesome movie community, Letterboxd. Click the logo here to take a look at them if you’re interested

Movies & TV Shows I Didn’t Finish … Because Life’s Just Too Short!!!


Dead Kids [aka Strange Behaviour] (1981)

6/10

A scientist is experimenting with teenagers and turning them into murderers. This could have been a creepy obscurity from New Zealand, but there’s too much goofy shit going on. Like, the movie opens up with a 20 year old guy, home alone. The lights go out and he’s starting to make shadow figures on the wall!?!? 😂 … he shouldn’t have done that, the killer is introduced. The party scene, I guess there’s some dancing going on or whatever the hell they’re doing? 😂 … and so on, so kind of a missed oportunity.


Dead Zone (1983)

6/10

Johnny Smith wakes from a coma due to a car accident, only to find he has lost five years of his life, and yet gained psychic powers. Foreseeing the future appears to be a ‘gift’ at first, but ends up causing problems …

David Cronenberg is one of my favourite directors, Christopher Walken one of my favourite actors, so this should be a receipe for success. I like the concept, but for some reason I’m never thrilled or close to be scared. All in all, it’s slightly above average.


Demons (1985)

8/10

Several people are invited to join the opening of a new movie theatre. As the horror film shown to the guests gets more and more violent, the people start to transform one by one into bloodthirsty demons. The remaining guests begin the desperate battle for their lives.

I really do love this Italian gorefest. Alot of special effects and violence, the only thing that prevents me from giving this 10/10 is the turquoise thing the demons drool and the wonky acting from several in the casts.


Girl on the Third Floor (2019) 

5/10

Don Koch tries to renovate a rundown mansion with a sordid history for his growing family, only to learn that the house has other plans.

I have a big love for indie horror, usually when there is just 2-3 actors in a smaller location. This one for several reasons I didn’t really enjoy. It’s hard to pull of being the only one on the screen and unfortunatly I don’t think C.M. Punk in the lead really does that. But he is good when interacting with others. The setup with a creepy house is the usual trop, but at no time it gets scary at all.

Graduation Day (1981)

6/10

A masked killer begins murdering students on the school track team after a track runner dies upon completion of a 30 second 200-meter race. Pretty standard slasher,but for some reason I like it but it has no effects to talk about or nudity.

Howling, The (1981)

9/10

After a bizarre and near deadly encounter with a serial killer, a television newswoman is sent to a remote mountain resort whose residents may not be what they seem.

Proberly my favourite werewolf movie ever. Love the atmosphere and the effects are amazing for being 1981. A must watch!

Incubus, The  (1981)

7/10

A small town’s doctor takes matters into his own hands after a series of gruesome and bizarre rape crimes perplex the clueless authorities.

The first 15 minutes I don’t know what the hell is going on, is it a slasher? Then some occult ritual comes in, a father looking at his daughter in the shower (WTF!), Friday the 13th rip-off soundtrack … then things start to make a bit more sense. But just a bit. Read full review here!

In Fabric (2019)

7/10

In Fabric is a haunting ghost story set against the backdrop of a busy winter sales period in a department store and follows the life of a cursed dress as it passes from person to person, with devastating consequences..

I liked this art-house horror/thriller. Unique concept about a ”possessed” dress. Usually movies in the art-house category is a one time watch for me, a proberly this want be a buy.


Insidious (2010)

4/10

A family looks to prevent evil spirits from trapping their comatose child in a realm called The Further.

Another one of these “highly celebrated” horror movies of the 2010 decade that I don’t get. I don’t like to call movies shit, but this one is sure overrated. It starts out great, but just becomes a clear Poltergeist rip-off, with the mediums coming in to help, the other side … or here called “the further”. I mean even the demon looks like a joke … like some kind of Halloween costume for kids. I also started to watch Indsidious 2, but stopped about 30 minutes in. No, thanks!

In The Tall Grass (2019)

7/10

After hearing a young boy’s cry for help, a sister and brother venture into a vast field of tall grass in Kansas but soon discover there may be no way out…and that something evil lurks within.

As stated several times before, I love original plots. And this one definitely has that. It’s mesmerizing and mysterious. Patrick Wilson is great in his role and also the little boy Will Buie Jr. I hope we see more of him in the future. The director Vincenzo Natali has 29 credits, but I have only seen his 1997 classic Cube but now I got to look into his back catalogue.

It, Chapter One (2017)

9/10

In the summer of 1989, a group of bullied kids band together to destroy a shape-shifting monster, which disguises itself as a clown and preys on the children of Derry, their small Maine town.

I don’t even remember the 1990 version, not more than that I was disappointed when I watched it the first time. But this one is really good and Bill Skarsgård is awesome as the clown.

It, Chapter Two (2019)

7/10

Twenty-seven years after their first encounter with the terrifying Pennywise, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back.

So chapter two, this one was kind of boring, maybe not boring but they could have made it about 1 hour shorter. I really enjoy movies with a long playing time, but this felt very drawn out. Bill Skarsgård as the clown and Bill Hader as Richie is the best parts.

John Adams (2008) [Drama/Mini-Series]

9/10

The life of one of the USA’s Founding Fathers, its second President, and his role in the nation’s first 50 years.

Fantastic mini-series about early America and its road to becoming an independent (from U.K) country and we get to follow the facinating life of John Adams, played by the awesome Paul Giamatti. As his wife Abigail we see one of my favourite actress, Laura Linney.

Ma (2019)

7/10

A lonely woman befriends a group of teenagers and decides to let them party at her house. Just when the kids think their luck couldn’t get any better, things start happening that make them question the intention of their host.

As soon as a script feels different than 99% of all horror that comes out, I’m all in. An older woman, played by the lovely Octavia Spencer invites school kids to party in her basement, and things starts to happen. She’s just amazing in her role.

Mausoleum (1983)

6/10

Traumatized by her mother’s death, young Susan is becoming possessed by the same demon that possessed her mother before she died.

Angry girl running away in rage … jogging!?! Then the wierdness starts, she gets green eyes, a guys head explodes. comedy movie music. Demonic possessed girl becomes a nymphomaniac and so on and so on. This falls into the category bat-shit-crazy movies.


Monkey Shines (1988)

7/10

A quadriplegic man has a trained monkey help him with his paralysis, until the little monkey begins to develop feelings, and rage, against its new master.

So, I’m a sucker for ”Monkey Horror”. George A. Romeros classic is right there in my top 5. Made right after my favourite Romero movie ”Day of the Dead”, I remember that I was kind of disappointed upon it’s release. But with time it have grown on me.

Nightbreed (Director’s Cut) (1990)

6/10

A troubled young man is drawn to a mythical place called Midian where a variety of friendly monsters are hiding from humanity. Meanwhile, a sadistic serial killer is looking for a patsy.

This is too much of fantasy horror for my taste. I mean most horror movies contain elements of fantasy, but when it’s too much in focus like it is here then I get bored. The ”nightbreeds” get to much on-screen time and loses all aspects of being scary. I have no interest whatsoever hearing them arguee amongst themselves about followung their laws and so on. To ”lord of the ringish” for me. Although some effects are really great, but then there are some wonky stop-motion parts that takes you right out.


Night of the Lepus (1972) [Horror/When Animals Attack]

5/10

Giant mutant rabbits terrorize the south-west.

This could have been so good! Giant killer rabbits … what’s not to like, but unfortunatly it’s not as good as I had hoped! Read full review here!

Nun, The (2018) [Horror]

4/10

Jeez, talk about pointless. All you get is non-stop action with scary nuns, jump scares and no depths whatsoever to the story! Avoid!


Offerings (1989) [Horror]

4/10

Ten years after he was pushed down a well, a young man kills off the neighborhood bullies who tormented him and leaves their body parts as presents for the one girl who was kind to him.

Generic 1980’s slasher with more or less no effects or any own ideas. It borrows wildly from other slashers. 88 films blu-ray is great, with audio commentaries by the Hysteria Continues guys.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)

8/10

A faded television actor and his stunt double strive to achieve fame and success in the film industry during the final years of Hollywood’s Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles.

I really like Tarantino and enjoy all his movies, although Pulp Fiction is still my favourite. Leonardo DiCaprio is a solid actor but he have never really been a selling point for me. Brad Pitt on the other hand is always great. Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate is fantastic. Tarantinos movies are always dialogue heavy and so is this case. Sometimes I lose interest in his movies nowdays if the dialogue are too long since they’re not Pulp Fiction quality anymore. I was about to give this a 7/10 rating, but since I loved the ending it goes up to a 8/10.


One Cut of the Dead (2017)

4/10

This one was talked about everywhere during 2019, and I don’t get it at all. But I gotta confess, I don’t like japanese cinema or culture (at the least the parts I know about!). I don’t get their humor, it all seems like ”slip-on-banana-peel” humor, and that’s supposed to be funny? I also hate how all girls in these movies act so subservient to men. Like they have to say their sorry for speaking without the men asking them to. Also the constant bowing is another subserviant behaviour that doesn’t work for me at all. I was one of the few who didn’t cream my pants when all those, Ringu, Grudge, Dark Waters, One Missed Call and so on came out in early 2000’s. With that said, your thought is proberly now: ”what a racist guy, he proberly say this about all Asian films. Then my reply is ”fuck you, fuck you very much”, I’m deeply anti-racist and would never say anyone is more or less worth than anyone else. But ofcourse cultures varies around the world, and I don’t like japanese culture, but with that said it’s not like “my culture” is better, it’s just different and we all like/prefer different things. I love movies from especially South Korea and Hong Kong, but also Thailand, Indonesia, India and would love to see even more but it’s hard to find english friendly versions.

Perfection, The (2018)

7/10

When troubled musical prodigy Charlotte seeks out Elizabeth, the new star pupil of her former school, the encounter sends both musicians down a sinister path with shocking consequences.

Looooved the first part when they are in China. I think it’s really effective and have you been backpacking in Asia you know what I’m talking about. The second part was kind of disappointing, but okay. The twist where really good in my opinion.

Ready or Not (2019)

6/10

A bride’s wedding night takes a sinister turn when her eccentric new in-laws force her to take part in a terrifying game.

One of this year’s biggest hype. A woman has to play a game of life and death on her wedding night. Okey movie with a little bit to much comedy elements for my taste, Even though I don’t look at trailers you can calculate about 3 minutes in on what’s supposed to happen. I added an extra rating point for some excessive violence in the revenge scenes.

Reform School Girls (1986)

7/10

Here we have a real exploitation movie under the subgenre Women in Prison. Jenny is sent to a women’s reform school. It is run by evil warden and her henchwoman. Nudity and plot holes bigger than Mount Everest. For example, when they get into jail they get strip searched and are not allowed to have any personal belongings, cut to inside one of the dorms and here everyone have their own lingerie and high boots 😂. Sybil Danning and Wendy o Williams are the most noteable faces.


Revenge (2017)

6/10

Never take your mistress on an annual guys’ getaway, especially one devoted to hunting – a violent lesson for three wealthy married men.

Another celebrated revenge movie I had high hopes for, and don’t get me wrong, it’s okay but not even close to other revenge movies, and nothing original.

Ringu [aka Ring] (1998)

6/10

A reporter and her ex-husband investigate a cursed video tape that is rumored to kill the viewer seven days after watching it.

As I said before I’m not the biggest fan of japanese horror, but this one is okey even though I think it’s more of a thriller tham horror. It was a huge success and soon after an american remake was made.

Secta Siniestra (1982)

7/10

A young woman pregnant with the Anti-Christ is terrorized by a cult of satanists.

A first time watch for me, and I fell in love immediately. This is exactly what I love, a director who tries to make a serious horror movie and fails miserably 🙂 … Read full review here!

Sorrority House Massacre (1986)

3/10

College student Beth and her sorority sisters are stalked by an escaped psychopathic killer who shares a strange telepathic link with her.

So this was a piece of shit! Hey, this slasher movie thing seems to be popular, lets make one! If it wasn’t for a couple of topless scenes I would rate it even lower.

Squirm (1976) [Horror/When Animals Attack]

6/10

A storm causes some power lines to break and touch the ground, drawing millions of man-eating worms out of the earth, and into town where they quickly start munching on the locals.

Killer worms feasts on the locals in this charming lowbudget 70’s movie.

Sweet Sugar (1972) [Exploitation/Women in Prison]

5/10

As always, Vinegar Syndrome have made an excellent job with the transfer of this one. But the movie in itself is boring as s**t. If you are making an exploitation movie you got to at least have a few outrageous plot twist and some nudity. Why otherwise bother.


Stuff, The (1985) [Horror]

6/10

A delicious, mysterious goo that oozes from the earth is marketed as the newest dessert sensation, but the tasty treat rots more than teeth when zombie-like snackers who only want to consume more of the strange substance at any cost begin infesting the world.

A blend of horror/sci-fi/comedy. Entertaining with a really unique story about a “poisonous” dessert!?! Here in Sweden it was called “Killer Dessert”.

Visitor (1982)

9/10

The soul of a young girl with telekinetic powers becomes the prize in a fight between forces of God and the Devil.

Batshit crazy sci-fi/horror … A must! Read full review here!

Witch, The [aka The VVitch: A New-England Folktale] (2015) [Horror]

9/10

A family in 1630s New England is torn apart by the forces of witchcraft, black magic, and possession.

I just love this movie, but you have to be up for a slow burn. It has great atmosphere and a creepy feeling hanging over it the whole time. There’s also something about movies that’s supposed to be taking place in the olden days that makes religious themes feel more authentic. I will definetly follow what director Robert Eggers do in the future.

Witchboard (1986)

8/10

When his girlfriend becomes dangerously obsessed with a ghost she contacted using an ouija board, Jim reluctantly joins forces with her ex – his own estranged childhood best friend – to identify and exorcise the evil spirit.

Love this ouija board horror movie! Read full review here!

DOCUMENTARY:

Weiner (2016)

9/10


DRAMA:

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri 

10/10

Coming soon

Donnie Darko (2001)

10/10

This one was made almost 20 years ago, and it’s still amazing. You understand why a young Jack Gyllenhaal and his sister Maggie became superstars. An obvious 10 out of 10.

Fish Tank (2009)

8/10

Michael Fassbender makes an excellent performance, but even better does the excellent Katie Jarvis as the main character, then only 18 years old as the daughter who have to raise herself.

Gangs of New York (2002)

7/10

Directed by Martin Scorsese it should be an automatic 9-10/10 in my book, but for some reason I loose a little interest about half way through, altough when we get closer to the ending, my interest is back up. It’s great so see New York around 1850s, but I think I miss more depth in the story.

Les Premiers Les Derniers (2016)

7/10

French slowburn … but it’s really good! Read full review here!

United States of Leland (2003)

9/10

A young Ryan Gossling, Kevin Spacey … do I really need to say more? Read full review here!

Okay crime/drama surrounding a jazz club in Athens, Greece.


GIALLO:

Fifth Chord, The [aka Giornata Nera Per L’Ariete (1971)

6/10

Frank Nero plays an alcoholic journalist attempting to solve a series of odd murders in which he himself is a suspect. Pretty good giallo, and Arrow Videos blu-ray is gorgeous.


THRILLER:

Donnie Darko (2001)
