    Hayao Miyazaki. What a fucking legend! 

    I remember watching this in my Highschool Japanese class over 10 years ago and I had forgotten just how much I loved it. This film was my introduction to the master Miyazaki and although it’s not technically a Ghibli film, it was the beginning of my obsession with the studio. This was the first time I had revisited Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind in years. I suppose I gravitated towards some of…

    When Sam slapped her step mom right back I was sold! 

    I’m not sure if it’s the 80s kick I’ve been on lately or this pair of Cali sisters but I had no business enjoying this as much as I did! The look of this horror comedy is awesome, I love the neon and and all the low budget sets. The plot is completely insane but I think that’s part of this films charm, I liked that it took some…

    There will be blood.. and LOTS of severed body parts

    This series had been on my watchlist for a while now and during my latest anime streak I finally ticked this one off. I had heard a lot about this influential gore anime and, although I found it slightly problematic at times, there was plenty here that kept me intrigued.

    The opening credits of any anime series are usually a good indicator of what’s to come and Elfen Lied’s artsy…

    Despite my better judgment and a shit load of negative reviews, after watching the new The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, I just couldn’t help but go back and form an opinion of this prequel for myself. Jump scares left and right contributed to the majority of the “horror” and honestly very few were actually earned. In reality it’s my soft spot for Taissa Farmiga that prompted me to give this film an extra star, she was a…

    Freddy falls in love with the word bitch in this one and never looks back 

    Although I didn’t find it quite as scary, I love this film just as much as the first in the franchise, it’s definitely my favorite of the sequels. Freddys one liners are a bit cheesy but remain pretty iconic. I love the imaginative plot, the visuals and set pieces are brilliant. One of my earliest memories of a horror film is the strange snake creature…

    Damn, James really loves his creepy fucking dolls. 

    A pretty solid early effort from James Wan. Sure it has its faults, the acting isn’t great, the plot is a bit clunky, and it over uses its jump scares, but I think there’s enough here to justify a recommendation for someone seeking decent ghost story. The effects and cinematography aren’t half bad. Some of the set pieces are quite suspenseful and while not all of the jump scares feel totally earned,…
