It Was All About Pleasure

We Review

We poster

I used to think of myself as a pretty cultured fan of film. I would watch foreign flicks from time to time and, at one point, thought I had a finger on the pulse of what was going on outside of the States. It wasn’t until I started Repulsive Reviews, however, that I really became aware of how many great films were really truly out there, waiting to be discovered. The latest to cross my path is Rene Eller’s We [...]

First Love Review

First Love

There are some filmmakers who have been around forever and only seem to have a handful of features under their belt. On the other hand, there are some who release features back to back, in rapid succession. Then, in a league of his own, there is Takashi Miike.

Looking for a way to get wealthy themselves, Ki-taek and his family weasel their way into the lives [...]

Everyone is Someone Else’s Lunatic

Horsehead Review

Horsehead poster

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.

As I try to get my schedule back on track since returning from my family vacation, I decided to give a different type of film my attention. A break from my normal horror fare, this week I will discuss Xing Fei’s Mojin: The Worm Valley.

The Plot

In hopes of lifting a centuries old curse, a group of friends must embark on a treacherous journey to find the tomb of Emperor Xian. In their path stands a myriad of [...]
