1:20 pm - Occupational Hazard
Trisk has a new episode of The Blood Stream up, and this week, it's a short episode where I spend 20 minutes getting increasingly frustrated at nothing happening in the movie Occupied.

Give it a listen!

10:54 pm - Grinn and Bearr It
Trisk and the Blood Stream has updated, with a brand new episode of the podcast, and this week I checked out The Grinn.

It's an odd duck of a movie, with a mystery to it and a lot of talk about abortion and verbal abuse, so be warned.

2:24 am - Blood and Cookies
Trisk is back for a Merry Triskmas, with a look at the 1970s flick, Silent Night Blood Night.

It's a convoluted mess that has a good idea, but the storytelling structure of the times just didn't quite work for what they wanted to do.

11:26 pm - I'm Dreaming of a Red Christmas
Trisk and the Blood Stream is updated with my latest episode, where I talk about Red Christmas.

It's a fun little first person/found footage movie about Tara, a serial killer, as she documents her process and holiday kill for posterity.

That's actually a really fun idea, with a lot of fun along the way, but a lot of squriming too.

Gimmie a listen!

1:26 am - Shock Theatre
Trisk has the latest big review up, with a classic Faustian tale of a young man selling his soul for rock and roll, in Shock 'Em Dead.

It's a fun bit of camp.  Nothing special, but entertaining.

11:51 pm - Rise Up
It's been a LONG time since I *wrote* a quick, normal review, in my What I'm Watching section at Trisk, and I watched a movie that blew me away SO much, it was absolutely something I had to talk about; Better Watch Out.

It's a Christmas home invasion movie, to start with, and it goes in so many strange and different directions from there.  The less you know, the better.  Just take my word for it and go watch it.

I freakin' love this movie.

1:11 am - Slithering Around
Trisk has the new review posted, and it's Slithis.

It's a bit of a simple monster movie, with far too much wandering around and padding.  The ideas are better than the execution, but it's not entirely terrible.

So check it out!

1:13 pm - Truth is Stranger Than Friction
Trisk has a new in depth look up, a little later than usual, but posted at 1300 hours, so it's all good.

Swing on by and read my thoughts on Karl Urban's 2000 demon movie, The Truth About Demons!

1:13 am - Blood Feast
Trisk has a new review all up and ready for your consumption!  So check out this week's review, Blood Diner.

It's billed as comedy, but it's not really *funny*, and way more strange and surreal.

Still, it's fun and gorey and horrifiic, enjoy!

3:11 am - Death is a Highway

I'm cold and hungry, so I'm just gonna leave it at that.

2:17 pm - The Horror, the Halloween Horror
Trisk has posted the new episode of my podcast, where I yell at Halloween Horror at Midnight.

I somehow found a movie that is nothing more than a barely countable anthology made up of edited bits of porn movies, in which they edited out all the porn.

1:27 am - I'm Invisible!!
Trisk has a new full review up, and I stick with Full Moon for two reviews in a row.  This time, it's far from an adaptation of a Poe classic, and is instead an all new superhero, borrowing upon existing tropes of the Invisible Man.

This is Invisible: The Chronicles of Benjamin Knight!

This movie follows on the story from my review from last October 26th, Mandroid.  And you would think it would pick up on the threads of the title character, Benjamin Knight, last seen not being seen, as he was fading away into invisibility.

BUT NOPE!  Instead Ben spends most of the movie in bed, while MANDROID saves the day.

But enough yelling here, I have a whole page devoted to me yelling at this movie, so go check it out.

1:21 am - This Movie is the Pits
Trisk celebrates its eighth anniversary by taking a look at The Pit and the Pendulum!

This was my first Full Moon movie, my first Lance Henriksen movie, and my first Jeffrey Combs movie.  And I found it was surprisingly deep about corruption and religion and hypoicrisy.

12:52 am - Creepy Crawlspace
Oof, finally remembered I had to get the next Blood Stream done, and finally got my look at The Crawlspace posted.

Enjoy!

(Note to self, talk about the streaming bad movie marathon I'm doing tomorrow.)

1:27 am - The Return of Mike Meyers...Donkey!
Trisk kicks off October with the usual return to the Halloween franchise, with #4, The Return of Michael Meyers.

This was surprisingly good, and I'm sure better movies lie ahead!

1:17 am - What a Creep!

This was something I had never seen before, and it was GREAT.

1:48 am - The #Horror, The #Horror...
Blood Stream's new episode is up, and I suffered my way through the socially conscious #Horror.

This movie had potential, I love it when horror movies deal with social commentary and have something to say, but listen at my growing frustration as it drops the ball it had every chance to make a touch down with, and fumble it all up and down the field.

...I think that metaphor works, I don't know the sportsball.

1:09 am - Don't Panic!
No, Trisk is not reviewing the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but an Italian/Spanish coproduction zombie movie wanna be knock off called Panic.

Or, Bakterion.

Or Zombie 3.

It has a lot of names.

Heck, Zombie 3 has a lot of movies...
