Cool Hand of Hell

Wednesday again and another Horror Movie Night! BK's pick for this evening was Ate de Jong's Highway to Hell (1991)! If you're not familiar with this little early 90s gem, you don't know what you're missing! Man, what a fun ride, pun intended. Not only does this star Chad Lowe and Kristy Swanson, Ben & Jerry Stiller along with Lita Ford in supporting roles! To top that off it also has the most awesome VW Beetle chase ever committed to celluloid. Fun! 6.8/10

Closed my night with blindspot / list of shame film in Cool Hand Luke (1967). Another film I've only seen in bits & pieces but never in its entirety. Holy damn this is a fantastic movie. I hate myself for not watching this sooner. And here it's not just Newman that's great but the entire cast. Too many excellent character actors to count. Some uncredited like Joe Don Baker! Can see owning the Blu-ray someday. Lots to revisit. 8.5/10
