I guess I go against the grain when I say that I prefer to like most of the characters in a slasher flick. I’ve never been of the mind that you should root for the killer (the kills can still be fun/surprising without watching a collection of degenerates), and I’ll be curious to see how the recently announced Comedown goes about itself. After all, a story about a psychopath targeting trespassers could certainly go either way...
One film causing one hell of a stir on the festival circuit is a bizarre little experience known as >The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (review here). Why, you ask? Shit, man, isn't the title alone enough to get you wondering? You still need more?!? Well then! How about a clip? The Human Centipede (First Sequence) Synopsis:
I can't help but get the feeling Uwe Boll needs a hug. He seems very angry and lately has been making movies that reflect that anger, that utter contempt for society, that deep down urge to destroy everyone and everything. He uncorked his rage in a serious manner with Seed and then comically so with Postal.

It's been a while since we've experienced some good old fashioned fatal attraction (my one night fling with Jaspar the Wonder Donkey and its trainer down in Mexico doesn't count), and Sony Pictures is ready to unleash its new thriller Obsessed to fill that void.

The folks we have taking care of our kids have played a bit of a dual role in our favorite horror flicks. Some are born to be stalked, and others? Well, others do the stalking.
Do you remember a little film from 1949 called Obsession that was rife with murder, lust, and mayhem? No? I didn't think so. Still, that's not stopping Hollywood from remaking it!
