I Kick Ass For The Lord!

You know that incredible tagline: Some things won't stay down... Even after they die. Boy are they right! As my 100th review, I thought no other movie would qualify that was epic enough that at the same time had no one who had reviewed it. Sometimes i would even like to get hit on the head so the part in my mind which knows a great deal of the movie becomes forgotten; and i can experience it for t... read more

Se você gosta de ver barriga explodindo, tripas voando, visceras com vontade própria, zumbis alucinados, cabeças rastejantes, pessoas comendo sua própria orelha junto com creme de leite, bebês zumbis que rasgam o rosto de mulheres indefesas e tudo o que há do bom e do melhor do cinema trash, Fome Animal foi feito prá você. Nossa doce história começa quando uma velhinha tem o braço MASTI... read more

Be forewarned, this is grade-B all the way, so if you are a no-fun fuddy-duddy like my mom or need an Oscar pedigree for every film, you watch, you will probably find this equal parts tedious and repellent. However, for those with a subversive wit and tolerance for bad taste and a ridiculous amount of blood and gore, look no further. This is your movie.

100 favorite horror films (100 movies items)

""I kick ass for the lord" Peter Jackson's Braindead, AKA Dead-Alive, is one of the goriest and most over the top films ever made. The second half of the movie plays like a continuous geyser, with the screen being mostly red. However, the gory offerings are played almost like a gruesome take on the old WB Loony tunes and Merry Melodies gags and are completely hilarious. Underneath the gore is a set of compelling and fun characters, particularly Timothy Balme as the lead, Lionel, who is always l"

Movies I Saw For the First Time in 2013 (135 movies items)

"(DVD - Netflix) Peter Jackson's "Dead Alive" is as splattery as splatter films get. It's a live action cartoon drenched in gallons and gallons of blood. It's hits insanity so early on, that it can only hold onto its momentum for so long. After a while, despite the fact that it is funny and is inventive, I became desensitized to it all. It became a little one-note after awhile. Yes, you're dismembering bodies in every way possible, but is that it? It's tone is in the vain of films like the Evil"

"Now why the fuck have I put on watching this film so long... I should've taken the hint when I watched Bad Taste and loved it. But nope, I did not. But I'm glad I finally checked this film out, and it was the kind of epic stuff I was kinda expecting. Peter Jackson is definitely some sort of a mad genius, and especially when he didn't have the money for all the fancy LOTR special effects. Dead Alive was just a beautiful mess of horror and comedy and to be honest, this kind of humor is my kind of "
