"House By the Park" -- Whoa. This is one tough piece to watch. Starring that guy who was the main baddy in Last House on the Left, this is essentially a revisiting of the theme. A group of swingin' disco cats pick him and his "slow" friend up for a party. He proceeds to beat the @!#$ out of everybody and rape the women. Stupid twist ending, but extremely funny slow-mo shot of his facial expressions when he's shot in the crotch. This is slightly more mean-spirited than "I Spit on Your Grave" if that tells you anything. 2 slimes because of the funny death and disco dancing.
"Mutant" -- Wings Hauser is the man, but not really in this one. I thought it was pretty boring, with a few decent moments. Given my background as a purebred Appalachian, I get irritated by "Hillbilly" stereotypes. But what do you expect from a bunch of stupid yankees? (Get it? I get irritated by a stereotype and then throw out another one? Oh gosh, I'm so clever....) 1 and a half slimes.
"The Company of Wolves" -- I'd been meaning to see this forever, and it had gotten built up to the point where I was somewhat disappointed. It was interesting to see Neil Jordan's early work with atmosphere, but the pacing was a little slow for me. 2 slimes.
"Masters of the Universe" -- "YOU CANNOT DEFEAT ME!!.....I AM....SKELETOR!!" Do I even need to say a word? I rented this so I could bootleg myself a copy. 5 slimes. Beautiful.
"Generation aX" and "Crinoline Head" -- Two schlocky shot-on-dv self-aware slashers that actually pre-date "Scream" by a year. No-budget (not even any effects) and too few laughs (particularly in "Crinoline Head") prevent these from being sooper dooper, but "Generation aX" had some killer post-valley girl-speak. "Like, Boo and stuff." The dialogue is the highpoint of both. I recommend for end-of-the-night nodding off. 3 slimes and 2 slimes, respectively.
