    I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House

    ★★

    Oz Perkins ist zweifellos ein talentierter Regisseur: Seine verschlierten Zeitlupenaufnahmen der Geister sind albtraumhaft und beunruhigend. Leider verlieren sich die tiefen Schatten dieses modernen Gothic Horror in einer wenig aufregenden Geschichte und werden zusätzlich durch die flächige und scharfkantige HD-Optik abgeschliffen. Schade.

    Pete Walkers Frightmare ist nach wie vor potenter Psychoterror-Stoff mit einer groß aufspielenden Sheila Keith. Empfehlung!

    Alipato: The Very Brief Life of an Ember

    ★★★½

    Khavn's trademark style of mixing pulp with avant-garde is put to good use. Narration is all over the place, but the sheer inventiveness of it all, including an animation sequence, is spell-binding. A decent slice of cult cinema.

    Without Warning

    ★★★

    Odd mixture between old-fashioned alien invasion-flick and teen horror-tropes, this film features extraordinary (and truly crazed) performances by Jack Palance and Martin Landau. I also loved the Flying Saucer-like parasites used by the alien bounty hunter to catch his human prey, but the poor pacing and uninteresting teen characters taking up too much screen-time hinder this from becoming a cult classic. Still worth checking out.
