The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Yakuza Apocalypse (2015)



Starring: Yayan Ruhian
Director: Takashi Miike


Premise:
A young yakuza is turned into a vampire and accidentally starts a plague of vampires.

My Take:
Director Miike is at his full blown weird ass self in the mash of martial arts action, vampires, and even kaiju. It's over top and not always interesting but definitely unique.

Rating: In the middle

Watched: Amazon Prime

A Cold Nights Death (1973)



Starring: Robert Culp, Eli Wallach
Director: Jerrold Freedman


Premise:
Two scientists head to an Artic research base after there is no communication from the previous team. They find the scientists frozen and the lab apes nearly dead. They stay to continue the research and slowly find out something else may be occurring.

My Take:
A movie that relies heavily on the two actors. It's a pleasure to watch Culp and Wallach chew up each scene. Not bad for a 70s made for television movie.

Rating: In the middle

Bubba The Redneck Werewolf (2016)



Starring:Fred Lass, Malone Thomas, Mitch Hyman
Director: Brendan Jackson Rogers


Premise:
A redneck loser gets transformed into a werewolf after a deal with the devil.

My Take:
The movie is basically low budget, B movie fun. It wont be for everyone's taste but had enough stupidity and carnage to keep me engaged.

Rating: In the middle

Split (2016)



Starring: James McAvoy, Ann Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley, Haley Lu Richardson, Jessica Sula, Brad William Henke
Director: M. Knight Shyamalan


Premise:
Three girls are kidnapped by a man with multiple personalities. One of the personalities has an evil plan.

My Take:
McAvoy is phenomenal in this role of a character with so many distinct personalities. Toss in personal trauma the main character with her own damage and it absorbs the viewer in.

Rating: So Good


Watched: Netflix DVD

Lucha Underground, Season 1 (2015)



Starring: Matt Stryker, Vampiro, Dario Cueto, Konan, John Morrison, Karlee Perez, Brian Cage, Sexy Star, Pentagon Jr, Ivelisse Velez, Son of Havoc, Prince Puma, Mil Muertes, Alberto El Patron, Fenix, King Cuerno, Chavo Guerrero, Blue Demon Jr



Premise:
Warriors from across the world battle in the squared circle.

My Take:
Described as "grindhouse wrestling" the show incorporates a lot of mystical and supernatural elements into their characters and vignettes. It's quite different than the other wrestling shows out there as it focuses on long term stories and character development.

Rating: So Good

Watched: Netflix
