Repulsion (1965)

I’d heard of Repulsion before, but never had the chance to see it. Good thing I keep relatively close eye on the TCM schedule. Repulsion is the story of Carol, a young woman who works at a salon and lives with her older sister. Carol comes across as quiet and shy. We also learn, very […]

Dead of Night (1945)

Let’s Scare Jessica to Death (1971)

Let’s Scare Jessica to Death is a low budget horror movie that keeps you guessing. It’s in the same vein of movies like The Haunting or even Jacob’s Ladder, in that you’re never quite sure what’s going on. With the main characters sanity thrown into question early on you feel much like Jessica, not knowing whether or not the events really happened or if it’s all just a product of her head.

Kolobos (1999)

Kyra and four new acquaintances answer an ad in the newspaper looking for potential participants (“freeloaders”) in some sort of documentary style experiment that will film all of their interactions while living together. So, it’s basically The Real World before all that crap got popular. What Kyra’s fellow lodgers don’t know is that she has some documented mental issues that she’s been working through and even has even been taking some medications for them. But whatever specter she may have hovering over her mental state seems rather mute when the posh residence they’re staying at goes into lock-down mode, trapping them inside with a bunch of laser tripped booby traps and a dark, faceless figure that seems intent on killing them one by one.

The Foreigner (1978)

TCM has baffled me a bit with this one. I’m not really sure what to think of The Foreigner. Is it a drama? Is it suspense? Is it a modern conspiracy noir? Can it even be considered a damned film at all? I’m still trying to figure that out myself. The plot for The Foreigner […]
