Hypnotoad

10&11/100

10. Survive Style 5+ (2004) "A man continually trying and failing to get his wife to stay dead; a self-absorbed ad agency creative director who comes up with one unworkably inane idea after another; a Brittish hitman who only wants to know everyone's function in life; and an unfortunate office worker and father whose brain is left scrambled after a stage hypnotist is murdered in mid-performance."  When I first started this movie I wasn't sure I would like it.  Everything was bizarre and felt unrelated.  But give this movie time and you will LOVE IT!  It was hard to find but worth the search. 8/10

11. Evil Dead II (1987) "The lone survivor of an onslaught of flesh-possessing spirits holds up in a cabin with a group of strangers while the demons continue their attack."  When I originally saw this film in 1987 I HATED IT!  I kept seeing it pop up on IMDB's top horror films, so I gave it a second try.  20 years later, I really enjoyed this film.  I think I saw it for the campy romp it was intended to be.  If you like horror, especially laughable horror, then rent this one! 6/10
