I still remember it like it was yesterday. Me and my film school buddies were all in line at the Enzian Theater in Orlando Fla, to catch The Blairwitch Project!

My introduction to Takashi Miike’s film’s was the ultra-brutal horror film The Audition. I would later go on to enjoy other films of his like Ichi The Killer and 13 Assassins (classics btw).

Checkout this Kubrick-esque trailer for Under the Skin starring Scarlett Johansson

Alien visitation has seen many manifestations in Hollywood. I myself, am a huge fan of the 1984 film “The Brother From Another Planet” starring Joe Morton, but there’s been a slew of them in the last century.
