    I've always had a...complex and unstable relationship with (the original) "Halloween 2". Depending on my mood, I will view the movie as a solid slasher and a worthy followup to "Halloween"- a classic within the genre. But the cynic in me will also notice that "Halloween 2" foreshadows a problem that would ultimately ruin the franchise (for me).

    "Halloween: Resurrection" would be an acceptable slasher if it wasn't called 'Halloween', but it is...So it's not acceptable. The movie ends after the first 15 minutes and the remaining hour is just filler. Of all the entries within this 'flawed' franchise, I wish this one didn't exist the most. It's not the worst, but it pretty much killed the franchise.
  3. “The Lords of Salem (2012)” movie review.

    "The Lords of Salem" is either an incomprehensible- but aesthetically attractive- mess which drowns under its own madness, or it's a haunting masterpiece- albeit a flawed one- which manages to drown its audience under its own madness...but in a good way? The arthouse touches, creative scare tactics, spooky sound design and surreal imagery all worked in unison to give me chills. But it is very strange and it has the tendency to be just as alienating as it is mesmerizing.
