It wasn't as bad as people said it was, IMO, but it's not good either. It's pretty meh, and it feels more like an awkward comedy, than a horror film.

Defendor (2010)
A much more touching and powerful take on vigilantism, than movies like Kick-Ass.

It's a drama/comedy with some really powerful performances.

I loved it, and I highly recommend it!

Sucker Punch (2011)
The visuals are fantastic and really imaginative, but it's not so strong story-wise.

I really enjoyed it, though.

Orlok's rating:
One of the best & most interesting horror documentaries out there.

Platinum Dunes' only decent movie.

It isn't in the same league as the original, which is one of my favorites. The acting was decent, but R Lee Eremy was great in it, and completely stole the show.



PS: Jessica Biel is incredibly hot :P

Tremors (1990)
One of the funniest horror-comedies I've seen.

It mixes the horror & comedy perfect.

Hilarious characters with good chemistry, and great acting!

The monster effects are great!

Watched for the first time ever!

I loved it! the suspense was great, the characters were likable & funny, and the score is really good.

A classic.


Orlok's rating:
One of the grimmest, bleakest & most sadistic movies I've ever seen, and I thought it was great!

A true horror film, with a bone-chilling ending.

Orlok's rating:
I really liked it, for some reason. It 's really different from most of the other Halloween films, but I liked the mystic approach.

Far from one of the best Halloween films, but enjoyable.

An uninspiring waste of time.

It's not horrible, but it's nothing new or interesting at all.

It's just... meh...

Re-watch.

I would go as far as calling it a modern day horror classic. It mixes horror & dark comedy perfectly, and reminds me of Goosebumps for grown-ups. The horror is intense & the humor is twisted, and the atmosphere is perfect for Halloween.

I love it!

A good, but lacking, animated horror movie for adults.

The stories range from good to decent, but all of them have unresolved endings.

Recommended for people that's into strange movies with weird art styles and such.

One of my favorite sequels, to one of my favorite movies!

Orlok's rating:
An interesting take on the Japanese urban legend known as the Slit-Mouthed Woman.

I really liked it, but some parts were a little bit confusing.

Extremely creepy & well-told Japanese Horror film.

HIGHLY recommended.

The Grudge (2004)
Decent remake, but it felt to polished & hollywood-ish. Also, the scares weren't as good in it.

Just watch the Japanese ones. They're far superior.

The Ring (2002)
Re-watch.
I never understand the love that this film get. It's just decent IMO.

The story is not that good, but I like the "cursed video tape"- urban legend. Some of the visuals are really good, and the acting is pretty damn good. Still, I don't find it that scary at all, and I like slow-burn horror films & ghost films.

A brutal & gory slasher from the late great Mario Bava.

The cinematography is beautiful, and the score is fitting. The acting isn't the best, but you really don't watch movies like this for the acting.

The kills are really gruesome, and it shows where the Friday the 13th films got their inspiration from.

It's got some mysticism as well, which just adds to the unique story.

I highly recommend it for old school horror fans.

Session 9 (2001)
Re-watch.

Incredibly scary low-budget & slow-burn horror film. It doesn't use any cheap jump-scares or clichรฉs, and the plot is deep.

Orlok's rating:
A sick & perverted movie about making movies, porn & snuff. The characters are great, and darkly funny at times. The violence & gore is really realistic, and not as over-the-top as "A Serbian Film".

Still, I prefer "A Serbian Film".

I recommend it for hardcore viewers only.

Awesome film! Great story, interesting characters, and some really great high-pressure blood spurts.
The music is excellent, and the visuals match perfectly.

Recommended!

An Awesome & รผber-violent Samurai-flick!

It got it's flaws, and the dub is pretty corny, but it's incredibly entertaining.

This is Rob Zombie's best film in my opinion, and I liked House of 1000 corpses & the Haunted World of El Superbeasto. I also didn't think that the Halloween remake was bad.

I was surprised how good this film was.
The premise is a mix between ghost hunters & paranormal activity, yet I found this film to do a better job than both of the previous mentioned.

It starts off as a parody of "real" ghost tv-shows, and turns into a really scary & gruesome horror film.

It has it's flaws, but it's still a very solid horror flick, and it actually made me yell out loud at one part.

A good remake, but I prefer the original.

The only thing the remake improved was the death scenes. They felt much more satisfying as revenge, and they were incredibly gruesome.

The Woman (2011)
Possibly one of the best horror films this year.

It's original, violent & really disturbing.

I really, really hated the father & the son, whom are the true monsters.

Orlok's rating:
A really funny flick with an impressive cast of comedians.

Super (2011)
Re-watch.

I liked it a lot more this time, since I found it much more deeper & dramatic than first time I saw it. It's still hilarious at times, but it's incredibly depressing too.

If you want a really black comedy, I recommend it.

Update:
Watched it again for the third time, and I still think it's fantastic.

One of my favorite movies made in 2011!

I really liked the Grindhouse & Troma feel it had, and it had a silly, yet serious plot. The acting was extremely good, especially from Rutger Hauer.

The gore effects were great.

I highly recommend this one to fans of troma/grindhouse/exploitation.

Update:

Re-watched it. Still really awesome.
