Let the right one in
What?!? Another vampire movie?

An essay in androgeny. Funny how 12 year old boys and girls are nearly indistinguishable. The sexless tweens however did add to the atmosphere of this movie. A slow burn, the suspense of what is happening to Oskar mixed with what exactly is Eli? Vampire? Home schooled? Ghost? Love slave of a creepy old man? Pacing is everything in this movie. It slowly reveals the beauty that is “Let the Right One In”. Give the cinematographer credit for a hauntingly magnificent film. 10/10 despite being a vampire movie.

Nightmare City

What I’ve learned from watching this movie: 1. Italian zombies can fly/land planes, drive cars, and use guns, 2. Italian zombies are obsessed with tits and will do anything to bite them. With that said, it is apparent that Italian women did not wear bras in the ’70’s, regardless of occupation, thus making it easier for said zombies to bite their breasts. The gore in this film is rather tame by today’s standards, as the zombies preferred to sip blood than to devouring victims. Italian zombie movies hold a dear place in my heart. If you are a fan of the genre, this is worth a look. If you have not been introduced, then rent Fulci’s Zombi (a.k.a. Zombi 2). I give this 7/10.
