horror movie review link of the day
And You Call Yourself A Scientist! is a unique movie review site. Its Australian proprietess is a scientists, and pays special attention to films' portrayal of science and her cinematic colleagues. She's reviewed an extensive library of horror films (even Friday the 13th Part 4, although she's careful to note that she didn't have to pay for that dubious privilege). Here's a quote from her current review of Bad Movie extraordinaire Exorcist II: The Heretic, which is also roundly skewered at Jabootu's Bad Movie Dimension:
In these days of unending re-makes and "re-imaginings"; of sequels and prequels and spin-offs; of absolutely relentless cinematic regurgitation, I would much rather watch an attempt to do something original than something I’ve seen a hundred times before under a hundred different names – even if, in the end, that attempt trips over its own aspirations and falls flat on its face in the mud – as is the case with The Heretic.
