The Loved Ones 8/18/15
Also, considering there are only two people threatening Brent, it feels a little bit underwhelming (don't get me wrong, it creates some magnificently wicked scenes, like the drill and kettle one) but they didn't feel so threatening, and I think it may have worked better if Brent had even more people...
It literally changes into an entirely different film, with the first half being a home invasion/psychological horror whilst the second is torture porn (but not as gratuitous as pretty much every other torture porn film) and it leaves the film feeling a little disconnected, that affects the fluidity ...
The Thing 8/12/15
However, this film isn't a spectacular display of acting, but very few horror films are.
The Last House on the Left 8/11/15
The sub-plot involving the police officers wasnt necessary really, it tried to include some comic relief into the film, but it was just a bit silly, and it was one of the many many examples of humour simply not working within a horror film.
Beyond the Valley of the Dolls 8/10/15
But with a so-so cast and very few redeeming features, this film is pretty awful, and I don't really understand how it managed to garner a cult following, perhaps I'm not picking up on something though, I feel that way anyway, because I can't identify any messages the film is trying to make, yet due...

However, this film just uses tropes that have already been implemented into other films, for example, the helicopter scene had already been done in a Romero film.
28 Days Later... 8/08/15
Another probable temptation that the film avoided was its avoidance of becoming an overly patriotic, propaganda, look-how-great (no pun intended)-Britain-is kind of film, which films like 2012 took the fatal mistake of choosing (except in that case, its pro-America, in literally every aspect) and it...
You're Next 8/07/15
It always manages to enhance the effects Wingard attempts to create within several key moments layered throughout the film, and the looking for the magic song was a peculiar juxtaposition to the bleak nature of the film.
Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! 8/06/15
In particular, the dialogue is astounding, and it has to be the most quotable film I have ever seen, and I was laughing on a very frequent basis, but thats probably because I enjoy sexual innuendoes and double entendres, and this film is full of them, as is any Russ Meyer film.
Deep Red 8/05/15
His moving camera angles are also a nice touch, for viewing a film through a static camera is something that any movie-goer has become de-sensitised to, so featuring a moving camera in the more slow scenes makes for a nice change, that also allows the viewer to search for anything that may link to t...
