ABOUT


My name is James, and this is my site.

Essentially, I am a fan of all genres of cinema, save for romance, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the horror genre.

There are many different ways my love of not only the horror genre, but low-budget filmmaking in general got started. As a child, I was terrified of a demonic ginger named Chucky, and the "hot tub" scene in Halloween II

However, Sam Raimi's Evil Dead was the real game-changer. I saw that at a young age, and loved it. I had never seen that sort of raw, low-budget filmmaking before, and it was incredible. 

My favorite sub-genre of horror? Easily the slasher, as you'll soon find out. I love all slashers, from the generally well-known (Black Christmas), to the ones few have ever heard of (Rocktober Blood).

How do I rate films for my reviews? Purely on the entertainment value. Admit it; at the end of the day, the quality of a film doesn't matter, but how much fun you had while watching it means everything. Sure, the quality may affect your enjoyment, but I think you get my point.

What are my favorite movies of all time? Why, I have a list of my twenty favorites just for that:

 

1. Army of Darkness (1992)

2. Big Trouble in Little China (1986)

3. Phantom of the Paradise (1974)

4. Miami Connection (1987)

That should give you an idea on what this site (and myself) is all about. Sniffing out the most obscure treasures out there and judging whether or not I have wasted a good portion of my time or if I have discovered a lost classic. And with standards as low as mine, what could go wrong?
