    Evilspeak is such a charmingly goofy movie.

    I missed out on that one but I did get to see The Day of the Beast. Man is that a crazy fun movie with some madcap funny moments.

    Masterpiece. But I tilt to weird experimental cinema.

    Rewatched The Wolf of Snow Hollow last night.

    Man, I really like this movie a lot. It may move up in my list of 2021 first time viewings.

    It's hilarious, gruesome, scary.

    Apparently Jim Cummings is a real "love him or hate him" type, but I think I love him. His alcoholic rants about his ex wife, his meltdowns when people mess up or ask stupid questions...it's damn funny.

    A fun take on the werewolf myth, too.

    10/10. One of the most gloriously wicked, out there, music video as film, experimental masterworks ever made.

    Been a very long time since I've seen it, but I do recall finding it enthrallingly strange. The sequel Tetsuo II: Body Hammer is also good. I recall liking the sequel a little bit more, even.

    I gotta see the sequels.

    Upon further thought, and at the risk of coming off as even more of a Horror grump than I already do, I've decided that, while still a pretty good movie on the whole, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre still would've been better if its second half consisted of something besides just watching a certain character being chased or tortured the whole time, because that just gets tiresome after a while, you know?

    Anyone else seen Terrifier?

    I have never found clowns scary, but Art the Clown is the closest I've come. Particularly the beginning, with his creepy staring and the gigantic black smiles.

    The movie is very ugly and dumb. Production values are super low, and obviously most of the budget went to the admittedly impressive practical gore effects. There's some seriously great work here in that regard.

    Nearly all character deaths are due to insane levels of stupidity. Art should have been bested / killed at least 5 times throughout.

    Also uncomfortably misogynistic. While he does awful things to both men and women, the women receive significantly more cruelty. Including one particularly awful Bone Tomahawk-esque scene.

    I like the movie for Art, the inspired gore effects (no CGI in sight), and the fact that it is a movie by Dread Central, which I think is pretty neat.

    I would say that only gore hounds and SERIOUS horror nerds need apply here.

    Yep I've seen it. First semi-decent horror movie I've seen in ages.

    I've seen it and didn't care for it for all the points you mentioned here. All the sexual mutilation he did on the female victims was really off-putting. Comparatively, the male victims were let off pretty easy. I remember the reveal at the end and just thought it would have worked so much better as a mid-movie twist, too. That way, they could have actually had people going full-measure on him when he was unconscious, instead of just running away like a bunch of fucking idiots.

    Well, after owning it unwatched for 10 years, I finally watch Thirst.

    And wow, was that disappointing.

    A few thoughts:

    Really enjoyed the characters. Particularly the two leads. Great work, rich arcs.

    Loved seeing a story of fairly traditional western vampirism take place in Asia. Was a fun juxtaposition of styles.

    The sex scenes were awful, cringe-inducing. INB4 "that's how they were supposed to make you feel!" Fine, but I still found them unpleasant and was only a second or two away from hitting FF in a couple of them.

    Most of the attempts at humor were big misses.

    Found it too vague as to why this all happened in the first place. Was there like, a known quantifiable chance that he could have become a vampire? Was that the real goal? I have no idea.

    Censor (2021) -- Nothing new or innovative about the story, however it is well told. Probably one of the stronger "person who deals with violent media goes mad," movies. Madness is always such a difficult thing to portray, but Censor does it well. I actually quite admire the way the movie wraps up. 7/10
