Cult's top Movie Picks of 2015
In all honesty I didn't find the chance to watch that many movies this year, unless you count a plethora of Hallmark Channel Xmas movies that my ladyfriend tied me down, Clockwork Orange style, to endure. There are many films I still wish to view that if time permitted may well have made it into this list, alas the ticking hands of Father time had dicked me again (ouch!). Who knows the site may well see my views on them still (Ahem! Bone Tomahawk). However, this year was a momentous one marking the site's first outing to the theatre (as a small 'Scribbler Collective'), an occurrence that happened twice in fact. Luckily enough on both occasions we witnessed films of a noteworthy nature. More on this though later. In regards to my own viewing habits, before one asks, I have yet to see Star Wars ‘15 (whatever this episode's moniker happens to be) although I am witness to its tyrannical grasp upon the unwashed masses, who isn't, everywhere I happen to look it's (smiling) Stormtrooper this, Chewbacca that. Not since the last The Hunger Games installment have I wished to be struck down only to be woken up with both my eyes removed. Whoops! There I am waffling on again, let's get back to the subject matter shall we?

"If it bleeds it leads..."
Director: Kiah Roache-Turner
Director: Jason Lei Howden
Leading off by introducing a teen caught in an awkward predicament surrounded by jock douchebags in school and a family that doesn't appreciate him in the slightest the movie then proceeds to add metal, demons, humor and gore. Then more gore and then more gore still including more grisly splattery bits than is ever likely to appear in your run-of-the-mill-vomit-inducing-this-should-be-banned-Christian groups-up-in-arms splatterfest. (takes a breath!) Honestly I won't ruin it, suffice it to say that if you like (fast, evil, demonic) metal, humor of the decidedly gallows variety and horror with chainsaws and grisly chunks you'll abso-fucking-lutely devour Deathgasm! You can thank us later for this film freakin' rocks.
Raising a glass* Here's to the future!
