For a while Versus was one of my all-time favorite films, but the recent wave of Japanese splatter films changed things a little.
The good stuff
LoveDeath brings a guaranteed 150 minutes of fun if you accept it for what it is. It's all fluff, all style, no substance and utterly weird, but that's what makes these films so much fun.
Downrange is a horror film that would've been more popular 10 years ago. Very simple setup, but quite brutal and in your face, something that's sadly gone out of fashion these past couple of years. Kitamura is a solid director, the ending is appropriate and it's a fun ride, but not all that special.
Nightmare Cinema serves a prime selection of horror directors, but none of them were able to deliver their best work. Still, there's enough variety to keep things interesting and there are no stinkers either. Like most anthologies, the sum is bigger than its parts and if you're a horror fan, this film should have enough to keep you entertained.
