A look at the movies that will survive all of us, the true classics!

Stuff I liked while checking for Ratmen of Rodencia …

How can this classic still be lost?


(By the way, did I dream it or did a now lost Fantomas vs Batman Turkish movie exist? I need to double-check that … How is it fair that the horrible filipino batxploitation movies are still here and we lost this one?)

Drugs make you a hippie, kids!!!

the inner curse

Wishmaster is a dick (III)

The next step for the Wishmaster is getting a new face, so he goes to the morgue and while he is stealing the face from a fresh corpse, we witness this scene that makes it clear that we are going to be looking at for the next hour (and the other 3 sequels) … the classic “be careful what you wish for” scenario! As we will see later, though, this type of scenes can go from funny to stupid, but I will let you be the judge …

Good movies you might not have watched: Noroi (2005)

Noroi - The Curse
Little late to the party with this one, but I think a shout-out is well justified, as it is not one of the best known j-horror movies. If I had known this movie had been done by the same director as Ju-rei (a poor man’s Ju-on), I am not sure I would have given it a chance, but I am glad I did.

Even though it uses a tired format (fake documentary), the way it is all set up (a programa about a paranormal investigator’s last investigation) allows the viewer to complete the puzzle in a non-linear way. The first few scenes don’t come naturally together until the final act of the film, but to its advantage, I found the different pieces of the puzzle in the form of video sources (other TV programs, 70s film, …) to be really entertaining and well done, too, they didn’t feel fake at all.

And then there’s the creepy factor … It is in the details. As I was watching the movie, what convinced me I would enjoy it more than most movies was a bit of hair in water, of all things. From there, the evil keeps growing until the very end, and then then end after that first end, too.

This is not much of a review, but if you like horror films, you might want to give this one a chance, because there are not that many that are this good …
