Carved: The Slit-mouthed Woman Review

Carved: The Slit-mouthed Woman poster

Months ago, I watched a film that, after only one viewing, blew me away. I had no previous experience with the director, at least none that I could recall at the time, so I immediately did a bit of research to not only learn of his filmography, but to also find copies of any of his previous films that I could get my hands on. As is normal in most people’s lives, time flew by quickly and while I had [...]

Everyone is Someone Else’s Lunatic

Horsehead Review

The biggest problem, if you can even call it that, for a movie collector is the fact that they can have a film on their shelf for years, never having seen it once. I personally buy way more movies than I could possibly have time to watch, so this isn’t unheard for me. I buy a movie, it gets placed somewhere, never to be handled again. One film that, after years, I’ve finally watched is Romain Basset’s Horsehead.

It’s Not Past For Me!

A Record of Sweet Murder Review

A Record of Sweet Murder movie review

It seems pretty rare, but once in a while, a movie comes along that you fall in love with immediately. It may be the acting or the special effects, or it may be something much different entirely. Perhaps it’s something you can’t even put your finger on. The latest film to give me this warm and fuzzy feeling is Koji Shiraishi’s A Record of Sweet Murder.

The Plot

Journalist, Soyeon, is contacted by a childhood friend after his escape [...]

This Reminds Me of Something

Red Room 2 Review

Red Room 2 movie review

With so many movies to watch and so little free time, it is very difficult to plan out a viewing schedule and actually stick to it. I am pulled in many directions, between watching movies for pleasure and watching those that I’ve been sent for the sole purpose of sharing my thoughts on, here on the site. Still, I was lucky enough, this time around, to actually stick to a plan; I was able to watch a sequel to a [...]

The King’s Order Must be Followed

Red Room Review

Red Room movie review

A little while back I had mentioned that I was on an Asian horror kick. Sadly, it didn’t last too long, as I was thrust into watching and reviewing more random horror flicks. I never quite got out of the phase, however. Luckily, today offered me some more free time to finally get back into some of the films I had acquired. Today’s viewing pleasure belonged to Daisuke Yamanouchi’s Red Room.

The Plot

Four contestants enter a card game [...]
