Mike’s Review: The Last Exorcism (2010)
★★★out of ★★★★★
When a coach, teacher, parent, or peer says “…hey there, that was a really competent job.” Competent? Yeah. Competent. A really condescending term that points to the ultimate in back-handed compliments. It’s not bad, per se, but it ain’t great either. Enter The Last Exorcism. A really competent piece of filmmaking.
Eric’s Review: The Hallow (2015)

Mike’s Review: Dr. Butcher, M.D./Zombie Holocaust/Island of the Last Zombies/Zombi 3/Queen of the Cannibals (1982)
★★ out of ★★★★★
Ok, I gotta get something off my chest. I saw the trailer for this beauty back in 1985 and was so horrified by its content I could have sworn that I’d seen the whole film — front to back. This was some seriously dense scar tissue built up over the years. But alas, I’d never seen this flic. That was, until a couple weeks ago.
