The Evil Dead
The Evil Dead (1981)

Just re-watched this one recently and I'm very impressed with how well it holds up, especially since I tend to remember more detail about the sequels than this first installment. I would also venture to guess that this is a blasphemous statement, but I honestly think I like the first film better than the second, as it feels more like a 'straight' horror film, eschewing the excess of the sequels for the most part, aside from some stop motion towards the final reel.

Still, a great series of films, and iconic within the genre.

Recommended.

Dorm of the Dead

Okay, so sometimes you find a certain actress cute and you go digging for her early films, and it backfires on you in a major way...

The always lovely Tiffany Shepis was the draw for me here, and I'll be damned if she isn't one of the first people to die in the terribly shot and acted low budget crapfest, so I ended up with a major bit of buyer's remorse here.

Pass. It's rather dreadful.

Ju-on: The Grudge

This was a film that I hadn't returned to since I originally picked it up as a blind-buy on DVD, and I have to say, it's still a solid ghost story, filled with a few great jumpscares and some eerie visuals.

Giving this one another day in court made me want to revisit Takashi Shimizu's other films in the same series, as they're all roughly the same yet slightly varied. It reminds me of listening to different people tell the same urban legend in some respects.

The set-up is pretty great, with a grouchy young woman put on house arrest in her mother's home, where mom is convinced there's a spirit lurking about. The lead is naturally a non-believer, until things start to get a bit too real and she's forced to start investigating, even employing an amateur ghost hunter to help out.

This one was pretty decent, paying off a lot of good word of mouth I'd heard about it over the past few years.

Night of the Lepus

This was a film I've always heard of and not in a good light, but when I ran across it on cable I figured I had to give it a spin. 'Giant mutated rabbits rampage through the Southwest', to para-phrase the IMDB and that's kinda it, save for how silly it looks to film actual bunnies and try to make them look scary.

Pass, unless you're into the 'so bad it's good' kinda movie night.
