Twenty three so far! What’s funny is that this is pretty much my normal pace.
Killer Mermaid (aka Nymph) (2014)
You can always spot the girl from the USA, she’s the one with the american flag on her ass. An abandoned submarine base, AND an abandoned Nazi prison island in sight of one another? The europeans have all the good stuff. Of course, there has to be the “you’re doomed! you’re all doomed!” guy. Nobody ever listens to that guy. This movie was better than I expected. Mermaids make a good creature, and there’s a weird female power thing going on, since the siren song mind control only works on men. Worth watching.
So the story is about medical students dissecting a questionable corpse. I don’t know why, but this process seems to take days and days. There is some extremely questionable epistemology going on in this film.. Ok. This movie was totally stupid, but it was a lot of fun to watch.
Chemical Peel (2014)
Brand new on VOD Oct. 14th. An obnoxious bridezilla and her insipid friends get caught in the woods amid a toxic aerosol chemical spill. Hilarity ensues. There are a few really compelling scenes in this film, but it is hobbled by unconvincing performances and some questionable scripting. I thought it was going to punk out on me at the end, but the final scene redeemed it. Enjoyable.
Manic pixie dream girl Elfie Hopkins and Harry Potter discover their new neighbors are cannibals, ala Fright Night. Takes a little while to get going, but the last act is fun. Pretty British.
One Missed Call (2003)
The Takashi Miike original in Japanese with English subs. Quite good J-horror that echoes themes pioneered by Ringu and Ju-On. A good introduction to j-horror from the 90s-00s,for those who may not be so familiar. Takashi Miike rarely disappoints. Also, I downloaded the creepy music box ringtone for my phone, which is nice.
