    the eyeball scene has haunted me for years. one of the few horror scenes that i still have a difficult time with. 

    it’s been a long time since i revisited this one. i’m obviously a fan of more extreme horror but sometimes it’s hard for me to get over some of the blatant misogyny (even though it’s a common theme in horror especially around this time). that being said the second part is so intense, insane and disturbing that i forget all of the things i don’t like about it. eli roth has been and always will be one twisted guy.

    the two leads are wonderful in this, certainly my favourite ryan gosling performance. it’s actually quite a beautiful film in a soul crushing type of way. guess that’s my thing.
