A few nice pickups in the post today! I haven't seen "Ilsa She Wolf of the Ss" or "Django" but love "Dolls" and "Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama". Anyone like these movies? I'm especially curious about the first two...
I remember when The Ring got its main stream success somewhere around the turn of the century. Me and others began to open our eyes for the asian horror scene. There are so many good eastern horror movies that you could get lost for days trying to catch up with all the releases. Tonight i plan to watch an asian double feature horror anthology called Three Extremes 1 & 2. Six horror segments by six different directors. (South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong and Thailand). This i will be my first time seeing these films. What is your favorite asian horror film?
@shoutfactory getting in the Irish zombie movie The Cured loved this movie highly and recommend to anyone who hasn’t seen, its starring Tom Vaughan-Lawlor who is probably best known for his roll as Nidge in RTÉ’s Love/Hate
Friday the 13th part 5- A new beginning.
The reason this film stands out from the rest of the franchise is because Jason Voorhees is not the killer. As a teenager I hated this movie and thought it was a waste because Jason was not the killer. As I've gotten older my opinion has changed and these days I very much do enjoy the movie and think it's a worthy edition to the franchise. Slasher's aren't known for their story telling but this movie in a small way does demonstrate storytelling ability by showing us Tommy's trauma and ongoing battle with his mind due to a previous encounter with Jason Voorhees. This movie was also interesting because it wasn't quite clear cut as to who the killer was, for a while it was a toss up between dead serial killer Jason Voorhees or the mentally unstable Tommy Jarvis. This flick did lose some steam when the lame Roy burns was revealed to be the killer. This dad bodied dude demonstrated strength he has no earthly business in having. No movie is perfect, and slashers are far from perfect but I feel this movie has caught a bad wrap, if this movie stayed exactly the same but Jason was the killer I think this movie would be praised as one of the better sequels, But since Roy was the killer it's one of the lower ranked. I don't think this movie should be considered amongst the greatest Friday films but it is far from being the worst.
