Watched "Nocturnal Animals" last night, I liked it. Not horror, but dark noir with a few heady Lynchian moments.

Director Jonathan Demme has died at age 73 of esophageal cancer. While much of the credit the success of "The Silence of the Lambs" goes to Anthony Hopkins, he's only on screen for 16 minutes. ...

I remember the first time I saw Demons, I thought it was just too insane, I was just not in the mood for how ridiculous it got. Now I see it in a different light, and while I won't call it a...

I watched The Eyes of My Mother last night. Great looking in black and white, haunting movie, a bit slowly paced, but disturbing in all the right ways. A nice debut by a new director.

I wouldn't call it mediocre, I thought it was well done, but it's hard to say it was an "enjoyable" film, you know? I mean, I love the David Lynch movie "Eraserhead" but it's not the kind of movie...

Blind buy of a used Blu Ray...I can see why someone would have sold their copy, especially if they thought they were getting a "normal" horror movie!

Yeah, it is one of the most exploited crimes of the 20th century, so I guess that's nothing new. Maybe it's the way it's being marketed as a horror movie that makes it seem distasteful to me. Who...

Too close to the real thing...I'd rather they did a straight up docu-drama, this really just seems to exist to exploit the Manson murders.

VUDU. I already have a VUDU account but this was the first time I did a paid rental. Usually I just enter my BD code numbers there and don't watch them.
