The Last Exorcism
      The horror documentary--a brilliant bit of filmmaking if done right, a curious experiment if not.  Either way, the mocumentary filmmaker is ahead of game because idea …

Repo! The Genetic Opera
"It's almost Shakespearean," I said.   "Comedia de l'arte," Lady Dinwhistle replied.   "Grand guignol."   I was out of theatre references …

Batman: Under the Red Hood
   This is by far the most violent Batman cartoon I've seen and if it weren't for the lack of blood, this film could rank among the more violent movies I've watched in terms of body …

The Human Centipede (First Sequence)
I thought the trailer gave too much away.  It made me uncomfortable, though, and that was something.  A feeling I couldn't shake for a couple of days, some kind of unnaturalness--different from …

Smash Cut
I once asked a question of Lee Demarbre at a panel.  I don't remember the answer I got, but I do remember the panel members made a point of letting me ask my question.  Also, I wore pink. My …

A prequel to the EA video game Dead Space. Which I don't know anything about.      Alissa Vincent is the chief of security for the Ishimura, a spaceship tasked with recovering a very …

Das Experiment
Psychology.  It's what you take in undergrad when you don't know what to take.  And it's kind of interesting.  Especially the really weird stuff.  But you have to slog through Skinner …
reviewed Left in Darkness. March 24, 2010
Left in Darkness
I sat all the way through Left in Darkness, I felt I should probably review it.  But how?  What words to use?  The movie left me feeling kind of incomplete.  Not because it lacked …

Incident at Loch Ness
It would seem that I'm slowly working through a list of titles compiled over years of browsing the shelves at Rogers Video.  I came across this one quite some time ago but never got round to renting …
reviewed Creep. January 25, 2010
My friend and I came into contact with Creep while browsing the racks at the video store. The art looked cool, the copy read well, so we went for it. She only watched it that one time. I took it home …
reviewed The Butcher. January 22, 2010
Where to begin? The the man-rape, the bear trap, or the chainsaw?      I was curious about this movie, but kept putting off watching it. I felt I needed to be in just the right mood …
reviewed Hell House: The Book of Samiel. January 08, 2010
If you've ever taken a gander at the movies I've reviewed or listened to TheAvod, you'll know that I have a pretty high tolerance for crap. Ominous words to begin this review, but I want you to understand …
reviewed Black Jack: The Movie. January 08, 2010
Black Jack: The Movie
This is what happens when you've got a hankering for anime but a) can't bear to start in on a series, and b) are too much of a lookist snob to watch anything that predates 1988. You end up cuing up a …

Santa's Slay (2005)
My general dislike of Christmas extends, unsurprisingly, to Christmas movies. I do my best to stay the hell away from all holiday-themed comedies, though I have of course seen a few of the staples. I'm …

Perfect Blue
When I lived in Toronto, a friend and I would always go to this one comic book store for anime.  This place had a great anime section and the guys who ran the store would shut off whatever was playing …

Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon
I have complained at length, here and on TheAvod, about self-reflexive cinema. In the post-Scream era, a lot of people jumped on the postmodern bandwagon, but it seemed they forgot why that movie was …
reviewed Ink. November 30, 2009
Some time ago while reading some random movie sites, I heard mention of Ink. I was curious, but ultimately too lazy to really do anything about satisfying my curiosity. And then I got wind of Double Edge …
reviewed The Echo. November 17, 2009
The Echo
Recently I posted a rant about remakes of foreign horror movies. I complained they were unnecessary and, by definition, of low quality. Well, I might now have make room for a large serving of humble pie …

It Waits
I've done a lot of cross-country diving recently, and though I do love a good coastal route, nothing compares to the beauty, majesty, and isolation found on the mountain road. That might be why I can't …

reviewed iMurders. October 26, 2009
Though McLuhan's "global village" was a conceptual space in which the instantaneous transmission of information heightened people's awareness, the village was a place of disagreement and discontent. …

Trick 'r Treat
Sadly, this film got stuck in distribution hell as no one would pick it up for a theatrical release. Now, a year later and after having played very well at festivals, the film is out on DVD.   …

Movie poster
Directed by Freddy Kruger, 976-EVIL, mildly entertaining though it is, hinges on a profound misunderstanding of irony.      Spike, who may or may not have flunked out of school, and …
