Crimson Peak [FILM REVIEW]

Crimson Peak, the latest movie from Mexican director Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim), is keeping audiences restless with anticipation because though it’s yet to debut in theaters, the buzz so far is quite positive. Advertised as a horror movie, Crimson Peak will be competing with the more youth-focused Goosebumps when it debuts in theaters later this month. (Interestingly, there aren’t many horror films this October. With Eli Roth’s long delayed “torture-porn” film, The Green Inferno, dropping in September, the only other theatrical release horror film before…

Eraserhead [VINTAGE FILM REVIEW]

Eraserhead is probably David Lynch’s most famous film, and gives you a good idea of what his signature (Lynchian) style is like. It’s oneiric, dark, and properly surreal. (Surreal is a description that tends to be a little bit over-used, but it can definitely be applied to almost anything done by Lynch.)

The Hunger [FILM REVIEW]

If you haven’t guessed already, this is one of the essential Goth films. It’s ridiculously chic, it has vampires in it, and it’s arty; not to mention the fact that none other than Bauhaus appears at the very start of the film, performing the quintessential Goth song “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”. That is pretty much as Goth as it gets.
