Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
96% Nina Forever (2016) Nina Forever is a confident, original debut that suggests Ben and Chris Blaine may have an interesting career ahead of them.‐ Electric Sheep

No Score Yet Penance (2014) In an era when a two-hour running time can seem increasingly indulgent, Kurosawa has created a five-hour film that doesn't drag for a second, maintaining its momentum throughout.‐ Electric Sheep

B No Score Yet Highlander: Search for Vengeance (2007) In terms of pure entertainment, it's a hell of a lot more satisfying than any of the other sequels.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium

B- 14% Black Christmas (2006) It might not break new ground, but within the confines of its genre, Black Christmas has more than enough gruesome, gory fun to satisfy.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium

B No Score Yet The pulsing soundtrack and eye-catching special effects are a long way from the subtle, metaphysical terrors of his later works, but it's still a superior horror film that deserves a wider audience.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium

B- No Score Yet The Guard from Underground (1992) Manages to evoke the same atmosphere of claustrophobic brutality as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), but only for brief periods.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium

D No Score Yet Entrails of a Beautiful Woman (Bijo no harawata) (1986) For better or for worse, Komizu has pushed the boundaries of bad taste even further.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium

D No Score Yet Even with the lack of originality, The Suicide Manual could have been an entertaining effort, were it not quite so dull and lifeless.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Feb 7, 2006
D No Score Yet Entrails of the Virgin (1986) Only likely to appeal to a very selective audience, thanks to the zero-budget production values and the graphic, over-the-top approach to both violence and sexuality.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jan 30, 2006
C- No Score Yet The Ring Virus (1999) Few fans will appreciate it as much as the Japanese or American versions, which are all of a consistently higher standard.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2006
B 38% Marebito (2005) Resembles a nightmare more than a horror film, with logic and resolution taking a back seat to atmosphere and imagination.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Dec 8, 2005
C No Score Yet Yogen (Premonition) (2004) Premonition isn't a bad film; it's just a very average one.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Aug 21, 2005
D 80% H (2002) Beyond the script difficulties, H is simply too derivative to be satisfying.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jul 30, 2005
B- No Score Yet Jiu ming (Koma) (2004) A decent psycho-thriller with plenty of style and a fistful of nice twists.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2005
B- No Score Yet Acacia (2003) Park is adept at cranking up the tension, imbuing seemingly pedestrian scenes of family life with a dark and sinister undercurrent.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2005
B No Score Yet Marronnier (2004) For the right viewer, Marronnier is a special find indeed: quirky, imaginative, and often funny.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2005
C No Score Yet Em Embalming (1999) It's certainly not the next hidden gem of the Japanese horror boom, and viewers expecting that are likely to come away frustrated.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted May 31, 2005
C- No Score Yet Infection (Kansen) (2004) After presenting us with a fairly strong beginning, Ochiai really doesn't have any idea how to end the film.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted May 19, 2005
C+ 20% The Nameless (Los sin nombre) (2005) Looking beyond the narrative flaws, The Nameless is clearly the work of a capable director. Balagueró and his cinematographer create a wonderfully grimy atmosphere.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Mar 28, 2005
C+ No Score Yet A.LI.CE (1999) Looks more like one of last year's PC games.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2005
C No Score Yet Alive (2004) The film isn't a total failure, but it's unlikely to find favor with the same people who fell in love with Versus.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2005
C+ No Score Yet Evil Dead Trap 2 (1991) By the time the credits roll the film has become tiresome and frustrating.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jan 14, 2005
B- 64% Ju-on: The Curse (Curse Grudge) (2000) There is nothing here to rival Ringu's nerve-shredding climax, but there are several moments that should have most horror fans grinning with ghoulish delight.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium

A 100% King Of The Ants (2003) Genuinely compelling.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2004
B+ No Score Yet Evil Dead Trap (1988) There's more to entertain and bemuse in the 90 minutes of Toshiharu Ikeda's cult masterpiece than there is in any number of post-Scream slasher flicks.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium

B- 30% Battle Royale II (2003) Does not match up to the quality of its predecessor. However, the first half is well-constructed and interesting, and should impress fans of the first movie.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2004
B+ 72% Das Experiment (The Experiment) (2001) Grim subject matter aside, The Experiment is a rewarding film.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Read More | Posted Feb 9, 2004
A+ 87% Battle Royale (2000) An exceptional film. It's exciting, intelligent, touching, and bleakly humorous.‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
