A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master - You shouldn't have buried me, I'm not dead

A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master is the first indication that the franchise has less of a future than a marriage between Ted Bundy and a snuff fetishist. From the lame 80s opening music performed by Patricia Arquette's Kristen replacement (Tuesday Knight), the fact that they had to replace Kristen with another actress in the first plac...

A NIghtmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child - Now Freddy's A Daddy, He's Killing For Two.

I'm not even going to try and bullshit you: I love everything Freddy. EVERYTHING. Perhaps it's because he encompasses everything I am - evil & sadistic with a dark sense of humor. Or maybe it's because I like my villains with personality. I also grew up (I use that term loosely) on the Nightmare on Elm Street Series and I hold them close to my hear...

A Nightmare on Elm Street 6: Freddy's Dead - The Final Nightmare

The metamorphosis of Freddy Krueger from nightmarishly intimidating boogeyman to ridiculous pussified cartoon character reaches its climax of juvenile and uninspiring humour with the sixth Elm Street; Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare. The character of Freddy is already dead by this instalment in the franchise, they should have given up with him w... Click to read more "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare"

Samurai Princess (Samurai purinsesu: Gedô-hime) - A New Samuirai is Born

Sticking with what seems to be this month's theme of excessively gory Asian horror movies; the biscuit is awarded to and allowed to be taken away by Samurai Princess (Samurai purinsesu: Gedô-hime). Possibly the goriest Japanese cyberpunk splatterfest to grace my DVD player with more severed body parts than Jeffery Dahmer's dinner parties and more v...

Lady Vengeance - Lee Geum-Ja, have mercy on us...

Chan-wook Park's third and final (obviously) part of the Vengeance Trilogy is Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (Chinjeolhan geumjassi), sometimes known as just Lady Vengeance and always known as Chinjeolhan geumjassi. Once again we are presented with a cold, calculated and complex revenge scheme intricately planned over a length of time that would make ...

Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance - Revenge was never this sweet.

Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (Boksuneun naui geot) is the first instalment of Chan-wook Park's Vengeance Trilogy (followed by Oldboy and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance). It is a complex tale of various intertwined vengeful exploits and the strongest yet perhaps the least accessible of the trilogy. The audience isn't spoonfed the plot and it is likely to...

Teenage Hooker Became a Killing Machine - Rebuilt Robotically for Revenge

From the extended two sets of opening credits at the beginning of Teenage Hooker Became a Killing Machine (also known as Teenage Hooker Became a Killing Machine in Daehakroh or more commonly known as Daehakno-yeseo maechoon-hadaka tomaksalhae danghan yeogosaeng ajik Daehakno-ye Issda) it is apparent that this is not going to be a run of the mill So...
