I just love horror….don’t you?
I had to take a break from studying and finally got around to watching Motel Hell/Deranged. I love 80s cheese. You can’t miss Ms. Balbricker’s (Porky’s) performance in Motel Hell, played by Nancy Parsons herself. Deranged was just frickin’ cool. Roberts Blossom plays the Ed Gein-type character, and boy does he do a good job. Creepy old man goodness.
I can’t say the same about Jigoku. My gosh, it was a snoozefest. I don’t read up on movies before I watch them, so I had an open mind. I did like the FX, especially for a movie that was made in 1960. It was really ahead of its time, artistically speaking.
I’m not really good at writing film reviews because I always feel like they come out like book reports. I’m the type of person that says, “Hey. This movie’s cool, so go watch it.” Yeah. No imagination there. Anyhoo….
I’m glad to announce, however, that this week I will be premiering my own domain. My blog will officially be violetvandoren.com! I’m so glad to see where this year is already taking me. Lots of stuff happening. It’s slow going but it’s going, and that’s all that matters.
