Actually, words like "bizarre" or "weird" do not even begin to describe this flick - it's ju... read more

Once upon a time, the gang from Scooby Doo met Mario Bava and Salvadore Dali in an old dark house somewhere in Japan...and they said, "Zoinks! Like, let's make a movie, man!" Then the Cheshire Cat strolled in, eyes flashing green, grinning from ear to ear, with a sack full of shrooms saying, "I'm the f**cker with the bag of trips that's gonna hold this absurd concoction together!". This movie is t... read more

Bizarre and beautifully kitsch Japanese horror where six teenage girls travel to a remote mansion to stay with the head of the group, Angel’s, long unseen aunt. Unbeknownst to them, the aunt has turned into some kind of life-sucking demon whose house kills unmarried girls so she can live.

While it would be easy to dismiss this film as 70s trash, it should be praised for its sheer ... read more

Description: Oshare is excited about spending summer vacation with her father, until she finds out that his beautiful, freakishly serene girlfriend Ryouko would be going as well. Oshare decides she will be going to her aunt's house in the country instead. She brings with her her friends from school - Fanta (who likes to take pictures, and daydreams a lot), KunFuu (who has very good reflexes), Gari/Prof (who is a major nerd), Sweet (who likes to clean), Mac (who eats a lot), and Melody (a musician). However, the girls are unaware that Oshare's aunt is actually dead and the house is actually haunted. When they arrive at the house, crazy events ... (more)

Movies I've Watched In 2016 (With Commentary!) (11 movies items)

"This movie is often pegged as indescribable, and while this may not be exactly true (although it is very close) it might work to the viewers benefit knowing as little as possible about the movie going into it... to get the full effect. This needs to be experienced to fully understand how crazy this film really is. It was a funny, psychedelic, disturbing, and ultimately massively creative art horror flick that definitely fits comfortably amongst my favorite horror movies. "
