    The Terminator

    ★★★★★

    It's insane how for nearly every minute of The Terminator, I was kept stimulated, wide-eyed, and triggered in all the best possible ways a film lover could be. I smiled—a lot (the concluding fiery reveal). Sometimes even shook my head in disbelief (the shootout at the police station). Cameron's seminal classic really has everything I could want from a genre hybrid of this type, and more:

The whole thing is rocking with unbalance, simultaneously being scattered, head-scratching shit one way, and overachieving brilliance in another, making for a completely unpredictable, undeniably memorable, cinematic gothic-horror experience.

    Terrifier

    ★★★½

    Terrifier left me shook.

    Maybe I'm getting soft as I grow older, but there were countless moments it seemed, where I had to fight every impulse to avert my eyes from the carnage happening on screen. Human-wish-bone-inspired violence (think somewhere along the lines of that scene in Bone Tomahawk), multiple scenes involving execution style gun fire - usually to the face, decapitations, bludgeoning, extended length mutilation, stabbings (again, to the face), cannibalism, car violence, self inflicted violence, and everything in-between.…
