Cool, this is in my queue now. Ray Wise is usually pretty good in this stuff.

I did Excision over the weekend. I am not sure if it was really good or a real waste of time?

I didn't care for Excision much. The trailer really built it up to be something more of a bloodbath and while it was still plenty disturbing a climactic dream sequence to cap off the teasers we'd already had would have been most welcomed.

We all must be needing a horror fix because last night I fired up Return of the Living Dead for some 80's zombie awesomeness. The Shining was on IFC night before that and I fell asleep on the sofa watching it. As Hannibal said in Red Dragon "it's like slipping in to a warm bath" tongue.gif

Excision was similar in feel to Ginger Snaps with the awkward teen girl stuff. As a guy that always feels so alien and yet captivates me. Teeth would be another example. Hemlock Grove as well.

Love GS and the awkward teen stuff. I can't miss Excision this year.

Was there one before the 1985 release? Sorry but there are so many damn z movies with the same or similar names I can't keep up.

That's funny. When I was watching this I was thinking an Excision/Teeth double feature for the ultimate turn off movies. eek.gifsmile.gif

Go region free my friend, it's the only way to fly. The you can order Inbred, Suspiria, Attack of the Werewolves, The Silent House (La Casa Muda), and Let The Right One In (with the correct subs.) tongue.gif

I have the BD of the original "The Crazies" by Romero in 1973. It came out on BD by Blue Underground right before the remake hit theaters. It has a great interview/commentary by Romero and the guy who owns Blue Underground. I thought I was going to order it online but I found it at Rasputin's for a good price (which is a rarity there for something new). It was Romero's first union shoot.

Good movie and Rasputin's is a place I haven't heard of in years! I lived near one when I lived in Campbell and loved that place.smile.gif

Oooooh, that Return of the Living Dead steel book looks sweet!

The PS3 is region free, right?

The Drive-In near me (45~ minutes) is showing Psycho and Texas Chainsaw on June 11th. My day off is approved and I can't wait to experience both of those flicks in that atmosphere. A bucket list item fo' sho. Hopefully I'm not too scared to drive home afterwards. eek.gif

A few movie reviews:

The Hole



A nothing fancy little flick by Joe Dante.

Ol' Bruce Dern shows up in a cameo and is excellent.
The girl playing our heroine, and who looks like the off-spring of Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Biel, gives a fine performance.

My only really complaint is the kid playing the hero is not a very good actor...must be a producer's teen son.
However, the movie works and is worth a rental.



House of Bones



.
This is a TV movie I found on DVD and is surprisingly good.

Although Charisma Carpenter (from Buffy/Angel) has the star billing, it's really an ensemble piece.

The story is about the proverbial Haunted House.
Good acting, with a fair amount of gore and scares.
Worthy of a rental.


FWIW, I tried The Citadel.....boring, skip it..

In Concord, Rasputin's moved from a smaller store off of Sun Valley Mall to the old Tower Records. They had a canvas Rasputin's sign over the Tower Records and it seems to have fallen down but of course no one there has put it back up again. They have a lot of $3 DVDs but they are never in any order so you have to spend a lot of time looking though them just on the chance you might find something good. They've got a more expanded used BD section though. Usually their "new" products were MSRP priced so Fry's down the road usually had a better price. Not so with "The Crazies."
