  • The Mutilator

    The Mutilator

    ★★★★★

    A personal favorite.

    Every time I've rewatched this, I've bumped the rating slightly and I think it's time for the full 5 stars.

    The Mutilator is a movie I liked a lot on VHS. When the DVD was impossible to find, I picked up a disc with a VHS rip at a convention. Then, when it came out in a cleaned up unrated version courtesy of Arrow Video, I fell even more in love with it.

    It's the slasher film…

  • The Monster Squad

    The Monster Squad

    ★★★★★

    The Monster Squad is the epitome of cinematic comfort food for me. The kind of movie that you never tire of watching. One you can throw on when you’re not feeling well or can’t decide on something else to watch or just need something familiar. Watching it feels like spending time with an old friend you haven’t seen in a while. I first saw Monster Squad in the late 80s when I was 6 or 7 and I would credit it with fueling my interest in horror and leading me to seek out scarier, bloodier movies as I got older.

    QT8: The First Eight

    ★★½

    Surface level, talking head doc featuring people involved in various Tarantino films discussing him and his first 8 films chronologically. Fine for what it is but it feels like a glorified DVD special feature. The nonstop clips and praise for the films made me wonder why I wasn't just rewatching a Tarantino movie instead.

  • Foxy Brown

    Foxy Brown

    ★★★

    If you watch one Pam Grier/Jack Hill movie where Grier poses as a prostitute to get revenge against the pushers and pimps, watch Coffy. If you're still in the mood for more after that, then Foxy Brown is pretty good too.

    I didn't watch Coffy that long ago so it's hard not to compare them. They're so similar that Foxy Brown really just feels like a Coffy sequel. Which is fine by me, I could watch Pam Grier taking people out while calling them 'motherfucker' all day.

    Guinness World Record holder for most uses of the word "virgin" per minute in a family movie.

  • Formula for a Murder

    Formula for a Murder

    ★★★★

    One of the strangest get rich quick schemes I've ever seen, the title formula for murder (and money) is to kill a rich crippled woman by fucking her to death. Loaded with dreams and hallucinations, twists and doubles crosses, a creepy doll and psycho priests, Formula for a Murder may be somewhat silly but it's definitely never boring.
