LET ME IN (write your review): “Ultimately, if the Swedish version is near perfection, Matt Reeves’s version achieves complete supremacy. Masterpiece is an overused word, but it’s hard to think of another so powerful. Let Me In is the new standard for vampire movies.”
HATCHET II (write your review): “While the death scenes are great, if nothing new, and the two laughs in the film are especially gut-busting (one on the racist side, and the other just bizarrely strange), Hatchet II carries few of the first film’s charms.”
CASE 39 (write your review): “Alvart clearly favours scares over tension and loads the film with the former while completely ignoring the latter. There are countless jumps to be had, but most are delivered through actions inconsequential to the story (an alarm clock charms unexpectedly, a loud knock at the door) with little suspense generated even as Lillith becomes ever more unpredictable and threatening.”
CHAIN LETTER (write your review): When high school senior Jessie Campbell (Nikki Taylor) and her tight-knit group of friends begin to receive a series of foreboding email chain letters, they have no idea the terror that awaits them. With a warning that if they break the chain, they will lose a life, the seemingly harmless email turns deadly when one-by-one the friends that do not forward the chain letter are hunted down and gruesomely killed by horror’s newest villain, the Chain Man.
SCAR 3D (write your review): “SCAR is a thriller/drama mixed with a torture film – when the torture sequences hit the big screen, you’re going to be in for a great time. Some of the sh-t shown was disgusting and brutal… like a girl getting her tongue cut out and thrown on the floor! I found myself cringing on numerous occasions…” (thoughts from 2007!)
