Bml93's Film Experiences for 2017: Last Half (57 movies items)

" Been wanting to see this film for a long time and it did finally get a Blu-ray release in Norway. It was, for the most part, an enjoyable watch. There are some really great kills in the film, helped by some brilliant gore effects. This is a film that gets the slasher elements of the genre right. I do however think that the film goes on too long between each murder. There are several fake scares and scenes of nothing important happening. The film does some character building here and then, but "

" LAST WATCHED: 3/2/2017           COMMENTS: It's hard to believe that the comedian we all know and love in Jason Alexander got his start in The Burning. In fact, Holly Hunter's first silver screen role was also in The Burning. This was definitely not the best slasher flick out there, which is weird because it came out towards the beginning of the slasher craze, so it had potential to become a classic. I suppose its a cult classic now. It seems like the killer just ran around f"
