Rewind Review: 2011’s ‘Crawl’

1346353026Crawl_Still_3

Crawl is an ultra slow-burn Home Invasion Horror written and directed by Paul China and produced by his twin brother Benjamin.  The sibling relationship inspires a knee-jerk comparison to the Cohen Brothers, but the comparison goes way beyond the surface.  One of the first things I noticed about Crawl was it’s resemblance to Fargo and No Country for Old Men; then I come to discover that the China Brothers had cast members watch Blood Simple in preparation for filming.

Top 10 Cannibal Horror Movies (Part 1)

Watching We Are What We Are last night and blogging about it this morning got me thinking about the cannibalism sub-genre of Horror.  Time for another Top 10 list boys and girls!

But before I begin, I’d just like to take a moment to state the following:  FUCK CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST.  I refuse to say anything redeeming about this film from 1980 even though it is, perhaps, the most infamous cannibal-themed offering in existence.  I don’t mind using this platform, however, to talk about what a disgrace CH is and why it should never be watched by anyone.  I’m about as anti-censorship as one can be, but this film features real animals being brutally murdered in the name of “Entertainment”.   Don’t buy into the hype that CH is trailblazing and/or responsible for the “Found Footage” sub-genre of Horror.  In reality, it’s just a poorly made piece of shit and among the lowest forms of art.

Ok, I’m off the soapbox.  Check out my Top 10 Cannibal Horror Movies list after the jump.
