Alright boys and girls, I fucking love found footage movies. It’s not a guilty pleasure or something silly like that, it’s a true passion. I seriously dig this genre, and I love how it makes old worn-out stories work again, just because it’s shot from someone's point of view. The... Continue reading

Shame on you all. Not me included. So shame on you for not realizing the genius of Neil Marshall’s Matryoshka doll of surprises; Doomsday! Okay, sure. I admit I wasn’t THE ultimate fan when it came or the first time I revisited it, but I thought it was a great,... Continue reading

This is always very difficult, I mean come on! How the hell can anyone choose one great movie over another? For me it’s basically impossible and as usual I will share with you my favorites - without any specific order. That’s more fair. It’s interesting how almost every year people... Continue reading

Woah! An Italian horror movie I haven’t seen! Well, that was my first thought, but my pal Jocke reminded me that we actually saw it during one of our so-called “geekends” a few years back. Maybe not the best sign that I had no memories whatsoever of Alessandro Capone’s Witch... Continue reading

Once upon a time danish Martin Schmidt seemed to be the future for scandinavian horror with interesting slashers like Sidste Time (1995), Mørkeleg (1996) and Bag det stille ydre (2005). But he’s mostly been active in television and family movies, except for one more title: 2001’s Kat. I remember when... Continue reading

This is mainly for the Swedish readers, because it's not in English :) Now you can order 13 Svarta Sagor, a new collection of short horror stories from every major bookshop in Sweden and of course through webstores like Adlibris, CDON, Bokus etc. My part of this is a story... Continue reading

WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS WAY TOO MANY CAT PUNS! “This film is based on catual events”. That opening statement kinda sets the tone for Zombie Cats from Mars, a micro budget horror-drama-scifi-comedy-spoof-comingofage-weirdo adventure from director Montetré and writer Ryan Cloutier. As you can understand I couldn’t stop myself the first... Continue reading

I don’t wanna toot my own horn here, but the thing I like about me is my open mind about gener movies outside the ordinary. I mean, around me - not counting you my friends of course - people seems to think that they’re fans of cult cinema only because... Continue reading

I had the pleasure of watching Romain Basset’s truly unique euro horror film Horsehead some months ago and since then I’ve been waiting for it to be released on some kind of home video media. Finally our friends at Last Exit Entertainment have released it and it’s available to buy... Continue reading

I’ve said it many times, if it wasn’t for Jackie Chan I’m sure many people out there never would have discovered Hong Kong (and in general, asian) cinema. The insanity going on in those movies was an eye-opener for me, even if they’re super-mega mainstream and quite silly. But boy,... Continue reading

If I was born in the United States, maybe in the 50’s or 60’s, I can bet I would turn out to be one of those conspiracy theorists, earning big money on writing books and doing lecture tours all over the world. But sadly enough I’m Swedish and therefore blessed... Continue reading

The only good thing from a certain horrible relationship I once had, many years ago, was that it introduced me to the works of Panna Rittikrai. We traveled to Thailand together and there saw something with Rittikrai and fell in love directly! I quickly tried to get all the movies... Continue reading

The older I get the less I wanna see dark, cynical, brutal, sadistic movies. I have nothing against them, absolutely not - but I've seen everything by now and I know all too well how to kill a human, or scare the shit out of someone, at least in the... Continue reading

I think the last time I for real celebrated my birthday was when I went from 29 to 30, and my mom gathered some family, friends and other weirdos for a nice dinner. Hey, even my dad was there and he told me this story! To be honest, I've always... Continue reading

It might be wrong, but I think my first Sonny Chiba experience was when watching Toho’s 1979 classic G.I. Samurai, aka Sengoku jieitai aka Timeslip aka Day of the Apocalypse (the last one was the “Swedish” title) and I fell in love instantly. Oh, not that I find him attractive... Continue reading
