3.0 out of 5 stars Well performed., 1 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This movie by Marian Dora comes with a reputation. It is the true story of a couple of men meeting on the internet. One wants to eat another person and one wants to be devoured. From the opening credits the viewer can tell it’s well filmed on a moderate budget and the props used in the credits are successful in leaving an unnerving feel. The film feels right for an extreme horror – grim tone and totally devoid of any humour.
The intimate scenes between the two men show a tender side to the two personalities that feel very real and the lack of dialogue really works throughout the film due to the good use of sound. The film has gore and sexual scenes but at nearly an hour and a half some of the scenes appear over-long or unnecessary. A good, if not very entertaining film that deserves a watch for extreme horror fans but most would decide not to revisit it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Brave but unexceptional film about Unit 731., 4 Dec. 2014
When I heard about this notorious film reflecting on the famous Japanese Unit 731 experiments in the 1940s it sounded interesting: interviews, a narrative and lots of gory reconstructions of the many atrocities that happened there. However despite the premise been a good one it does not work that effectively. It is not historically accurate so can’t be of benefit to those that see it as an educational film.
To start with the minus points most of the scenes of torture and death look really fake. This would be ok in itself but most of these scenes go on twice as long as they should with arty effects and weird images edited in for no reason with dodgy sound. It just tries too hard to be an art film and unsuccessfully tries to distance itself from the exploitation genre. This in turn makes none of the scenes disturbing which given the subject matter they should be. Instead a scene starts well, the tooth pulling scene for example but quickly turns boring as it becomes over long and repetitive. However as the film progresses many of the scenes are shorter and work more effective.
It is as expected, a film serious in tone but has a dark comic moment when a prisoner’s skin is carved off their face and replaced with that of another prisoner. Every time the guard tries to take a photograph the prisoner bows their head and the skin falls off. It is much needed relief in a film that is best watched in two to four sittings. At over four hours long and with a clear break in the middle it feels like a double album that’s ok, some decent moments on each side but would have made an excellent film if it was trimmed to less than two hours by shortening scenes and getting rid of the uninteresting rubbish.
It is not all bad though. It is a brave subject matter to cover and although it is not executed at all well the general premise is a good one. Some of the scenes are more realistic: tongue slicing, sawing frozen people in half, peeling skin of a prisoner’s back are some of the memorable ones. It’s not disturbing or historically accurate but it is a film that you will not forget watching.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light heated nice way to pass an hour and a half, 3 Dec. 2014
Very average non-relevant sequel to an original fun and light hearted film. Four young adults go on a stag do on an island which is an infected science lab with a few survivors. The characters are quite fun, stupid but not too annoying. The script is the usual nonsense you get from this type of film; when in the middle of escaping from the infected, a couple have an argument about who slept with whose girlfriend. There is lots of blood puking and if you’re into bloody infected women fighting each other on the beech this may be your type of film but most will find very typical of most mainstream 21st Century horror.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, 28 Oct. 2014
With a good budget, stage set and above average actors for a sexploitation film including the return of Dyanne Thorne as Ilsa the sequel to She Wolf of the SS is an impressive film. This is not a violent soft porn flick as many think but rather a campy 70s romp with lots of nudity but little sexual activity.
From the very beginning it is easy to see why the films have a cult status and are so highly regarded. Lots of ham acting and cheesy dialogue, assistants called Satin and Velvet, sadistic torture devices, women who explode during sex and the usual spy’s , laboratory’s and craziness.
The pacing is fast with lots of comic moments throughout and includes the usual action scenes at the end. Not as perverse or sadistic as its predecessor but a whole lot of fun.

This is a really nice film. Not scary in any way but more like a family friendly fantasy horror. Produced by Del Toro, you can clearly see his influence. It has really great Tooth Fairies, good set pieces and is very stylish. The acting is top class too. Fun.

The basic storyline of this film is typical of Hong Kong cat III and b-movie films in the extreme horror genre. The film starts with a wife cheating on her husband with someone called Kai, the husband comes home and Kai kills the husband and wife (cuts out her tongue). Ten years in the future Kai has a job working in a restaurant (popular set for cat III films). He hasn’t changed and is still perving over women and masturbating into the meat. He goes to see an African tribe to buy some pigs and ends up raping a native who has the Ebola Virus. For the purpose of film fantasy Kai is immune to the virus but can spread it to everyone else by spitting and raping, two things he likes to do. He kills his new boss and wife (sexual assaults her then sucks out her eyeball) and makes burgers out of them. Everyone who eats the burgers dies, he checks into a hotel room, sleeps with hookers who also die, you get the picture. The rest of the film continues at the same pace with the police on his tail.
So you think this would be a disturbing or shocking film, it isn’t! But it’s a lot of fun. The gore is mainly comical; it’s not as violent as it sounds as it’s done in that common cat III style. The whole film is a bit slapstick, the rape scenes and violence are done in a bright and breezy light hearted way. This is not a masterpiece like The Untold Story and it’s not deeply disturbing like Red To Kill but it is a fun piece of light entertainment. Extreme horror fans should maybe look elsewhere but fans of cheese and schlock will find some entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining., 13 May 2014
This review is from: Playback [DVD] (DVD)
This is a better than expected American high school tale about a teen with no morals been possessed by the devil from watching the playback of a video from a past murder. He then possesses fellow teens via video and can then control them. It’s a good solid fun horror; there are no twists or questions to be asked, a real no brainer kind of film. Despite the story line it feels far more like a 90’s post Scream slasher and less like a J-horror. The cast are superb including Christian Slater as a sleazy pervy cop.

3.0 out of 5 stars Middle of the road simple light weight horror for fans of mainstream cinema, 22 April 2014
This review is from: Dead Silence [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
I best say before this review that I have never been a big fan of films involving Dolls or Dummies, Puppet Master Etc as I have never found them creepy or scary so the horror never works on me. I always think the stories work well as part of an anthology in a quick 20 – 30 minute bite, but films like this always run out of steam for me.
This tells the old tale of a woman wrongly murdered in a time of old, and the current members of their bloodline now cursed by Mary Shaw wanting her revenge. There are too many plot holes, no explanation of why things are happening at a particular time, lots of killings have happen in the past but yet the police have never seen anything like it before and involves one of the most unrealistic police men I've seen played seriously. Not a lot of thought appears to have gone into the plot or dialogue and it includes the usual silly twist at the end that you get with these types of movies.
On the plus side I enjoyed it a lot more then Saw or Insidious, two films from the same team. It's not that it is a bad film it just is not a great one. It's the kind of middle of the road film that appeals to the mainstream majority of film goers that like their big Cineplex’s as opposed to their small independent art-house. It's acted and directed in a pleasant and unchallenging way and is a nice film to watch when you don't want to think or concentrate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice gore but very childish, 20 April 2014
This review is from: V/h/s 2 [DVD] (DVD)
The first segment involves a man who has had an eye transplant and can now see dead people. The acting is awful, the script is awful – it aims for boo scares but fails due to the awful makeup of the supposed dead and introduces a woman just so she can get topless. Not the best start to an anthology.
The second segment is a cheap low budget first person view zombie moment, the sort of short film that you always seem to get at horror festivals, unoriginal and boring. Hard to believe it was the same director as The Blair Witch Project and Lovely Molly.
The third short about a cult has some very good gore moments and will please all the low budget gore fans out there but it all feels very immature and is far too silly to be entertaining.
Hard to believe it could get any worse but the next segment is about a bunch of kids playing tricks on each other when they are suddenly invaded by The Creature from the Black Lagoon, or aliens or whatever they are. Utter rubbish.
All wrapped up in some messed up story about a private detective and his partner who start to watch V/H/S tapes. The whole thing looks like it's aimed at school children but it has an eighteen certificate due to the impressive low budget gore of the third segment. Serious horror fans should stay clear.
