In order to save my sanity (lest it break from too many awful adaptations) I had to take a break from my Stephen King project this weekend to review a couple of horror films by Dario Argento instead.

Cabin in the Woods !!! !! !!! ! ! Go see it. Now. THAT IS ALL.
Man oh man. I finally caught Splinter the other day due to my friend Carl’s recommendation and HOLYCRAP WAS IT AWESOME. It’s about a couple who gets kidnapped by an ex-con – only to end up trapped inside a gas station by the craziest parasite ever put on film. I mean, this thing is BRUTAL.

The Right One?? Thanks to this month’s DVD releases, I finally got a chance to see Let the Right One In (Lat den ratte komma in) – a movie that every one of my filmgeek friends has been talking about since FOREVER. All I heard was “it’s fantastic” and “it’s amazing” and “it’s one of
Although it’s my least favorite of the 3, Scream 2 has a GREAT opening death scene. Ignoring the kind of lame “knife through the stall” death of Omar Epps – let’s skip ahead to Jada Pinkett’s spectacuarly scary stabbing in the theater. Why so scary? Because *I* believe this could actually happen. You’ve got a
I couldn’t find a photo of the actual moment of splatter, where the queen Alien shoves her gigantic spiked tail through Bishop – but here’s a shot of Lance Henricksen (well, half of him anyway) with Ripley and Newt in the aftermath…which is still pretty splatter-rific. I wonder what the hell that is anyway –
