4/5 77% We Are the Flesh (Tenemos la carne) (2017) The exploitation of reproductive organs, the violent intensity behind every act, and the pure caliber of immoral yet delicious climaxes combine with mesmerising dream sequences soaked with visceral colours to prove that even extreme cinema... - Zobo With A Shotgun EDIT

5/5 57% The House That Jack Built (2018) The House That Jack Built is not the blood-dripped, ultra-violent, traumatising spectacle that I expected from Von Trier, but it is a sophisticated slice of serial killer satisfaction. - Zobo With A Shotgun EDIT

5/5 47% A Serbian Film (2011) A Serbian Film still rips apart our morals, and deepthroats us with them until we vomit our own regrets. For me it still holds the title as most nasty, disturbing, controversial and fucked-up horror movie to ever exist. - Zobo With A Shotgun EDIT

2/5 64% Child's Play (2019) Child's Play isn't going to win any Oscars, but it's a film that you're going to have a lot of fun with. There are laugh-out-loud moments, completely idiotic sections, plenty of creepiness and of course, our beloved Chucky. - Zobo With A Shotgun EDIT

2.5/5 No Score Yet Cat Sick Blues (2015) It seems there was a lot that could have been done with Cat Sick Blues, and it could have gained a more notorious name for itself if it either took out all the misplaced comedy or went full force with slapstick scenes. - Zobo With A Shotgun EDIT

1.5/5 93% Girl on the Third Floor (2019) Girl On The Third Floor begins its renovations with some grand ideas, but once the wallpaper is peeled back, becomes a film that is just meaningless body fluids, misogyny and an identity crisis. - JumpCut Online EDIT

4/5 81% Oldboy (2005) Oldboy is so much more than an action film; it takes the viewer on a journey through a life destroyed, rebuilt and abolished once more. It teaches us lessons about consequences from our actions, the need to get revenge and find truth... - JumpCut Online EDIT
