Super Shorty Reviews

In lieu of full-length reviews, here are a few mini-reviews for some of the films I’ve recently seen.

The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014) – Original concept, highly recommended
The Sacrament (2013) – Unnecessary, not recommended
Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead (2014) – Silly and irreverent, recommended
Snowpiercer (2013) – Okay, I could take or leave it
The Quiet Ones (2014) – I don’t get the hate, I enjoyed it
As Above, So Below (2014) – Okay, I enjoyed it

While unintentional, most of the recent movies I’ve seen have been first person/found footage. Some people aren’t fans of this style but I don’t mind these types of films (as long as the camera work sin’t too shaky). Longer reviews to come (sooner than later, I hope!)…

February 2015: To-Be Watched

So I’m embarrassed to admit that the reason I haven’t been watching or reviewing much lately is because for Christmas, I received a Playstation 4. Despite the endless hours I’ve logged, I still haven’t come close to beating Grand Theft Auto V. I’m slightly sick of GTAV and since my work is starting to calm down a bit, I’m looking forward to enjoying some horror. This weekend I crossed a few movies off my list and realized how much I’d missed the joy of watching horror movies. Here’s my February lineup.

Movies To-Be Watched:

World War Z: Unrated Version (2013)
Haunt (2013)
The Babadook (2014)*
The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014)
The Sacrament (2013)
Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut (1990)
The Last House on the Left (1972)
The Last House on the Left (2009)
As Above, So Below (2014)
Stonehearst Asylum (2014)

Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead (2014)
Tusk (2014)
Jessabelle (2014)

*A note on The Babadook: I’ve pre-ordered a DVD copy of this since I just couldn’t bring myself to pay $6.99 for a streaming rental. So I’ll have to wait until April 14th to enjoy The Babdook (but when I do, I’ll own it outright!).

TV To-Be Watched:

Sleepy Hollow: Season 1 (2013)
Fargo: Season 1 (2014)
Hannibal: Season 1 (2013)
Salem: Season 1 (2014)
