Wicked tidings of misery and abomination, gruesomes and ghouls… TwittaFlicks here, with our 2009 list of severed finger-size reviews of some Samhain favorites to darken your All Hallow’s festivities… Feverish dreams and Happy Hellowe’en, my fiends!

TwittaFlicks #229 – Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004)

  TwittaFlicks 229 – Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004) – Samurai-inspired revenge epic gets spaghetti-flavored and David Carradine owns the screen RIP

TwittaFlicks #280 – Memento (2000)

    TwittaFlicks 280 – Memento (2000) – C. Nolan’s twisty mindf*** tale of a man with no memory. Modern Noir at it’s best.

TwittaFlicks #424 – La Strada (1954)

  TwittaFlicks 424 – La Strada (1954) – Fellini’s tale of wasted love and madness is highlighted by Giulietta Masina’s touching performance

TwittaFlicks – #132 Double Indemnity (1944)

TwittaFlicks 132 – Double Indemnity (1944) – The definition of “Film Noir”. Never has a badder, sexier dame worked a more niave dupe.

TwittaFlicks #160 – Fitzcarraldo (1982)

TwittaFlicks #160 – Fitzcarraldo (1982) – Herzog and Kinski return to the Peruvian jungle for a tale of pure madness. And both men fit the bill.

TwittaFlicks #210 – In Bruges (2008)

Twittaflicks #210 – In Bruges (2008) – Martin McDonagh’s lovely little fookin’ picture of two hitmen on a ‘holiday’ of inconvenience is magic.

TwittaFlicks #499 – Yojimbo (1961)

    TwittaFlicks #499 – Yojimbo (1961) – Hammet-inspired Samurai epic, partially responsible for ‘spaghetti western’. Mifune is badass in spades.

TwittaFlicks #90 – Chimes At Midnight (1967)

    TwittaFlicks #90 – Chimes at Midnight (1965) – Welles uses Shakespeare’s Henry IV to inspire an artful take on perennial bit player Falstaff

TwittaFlicks #84 – Caddyshack (1980)

    TwittaFlicks #84 – Caddyshack (1980) – The best of the madcap 80’s comedies. The only good varmint poontang is dead varmint poontang, I think.
