Ley Lines (1999) shows Miike's versatility even more.

How did I never see Guzoo: The Thing Forsaken By God - Part 1 (1986)?
I did some digging and the internet informed me V Zone Video was behind this production. Part 2 was canceled since they went out of business. V Zone was a popular Japanese horror magazine in the 80s but its final issue was in 1987. Such a shame.

Torso (1973) is giallo at its finest.

Tomie: Unlimited (2011) is an improvement.

Tomie (1998) sadly disappoints.

It! The Terror from Beyond Space (1958) is great to watch.
toy of this monster. One thing is certain: if you want a great monster movie, you need a ruthless unstoppable monster. Alien, Terminator, Jaws all have this in common. The harder it is to kill the beast, the more suspenseful your film will be. Same thing goes for how lethal the creature is. Monster movies really have clear stakes, which I think makes them very effective. Rarely are they boring, and I just love monsters.

Godzilla vs. Kong (2021) is perfect fun.
Of course, nothing tops the original Godzilla but for a versus film especially this one, it's really the best we could have hoped for. Godzilla vs. Kong shouldn't be dour and serious. It should be fun and focus on the titular monsters, which this film does really well. I'm sorry but I'm not a huge fan of the old King Kong vs. Godzilla although I need to see the original Japanese version to understand how Ishiro Honda was trying to make a parody and sendup of Japanese TV culture at the time (something lost in the more serious US edit). I'm just so happy we finally got the matchup these two legendary monsters deserve.

Ghoulies II (1987) is much better than the first.

Inseminoid (1981) is a sleazy hilarious Alien ripoff.
here, you can watch it for free on Tubi right now (in the US at least). I really love the posters for it below.

The Blood of Wolves (2018) makes for an excellent crime film with a fantastic lead.
