Alien Amenábar

Don Dohler's The Alien Factor (1978) is so bad I have nearly no recollection of it. I just know that this is the first appearance of our favorite sheriff from Nightbeast, Sheriff Cinder (same aliens too which I first saw on the cover of Famous Monsters magazine! Now I know what the hell that was.). May have to revisit. 5.5/10

Tesis (1996) is the early film written and directed by Alejandro Amenábar and it's worth all the praise it receives. Really dig the snuff film storyline and the horror movie slant. This is the film that 8mm wanted to be. Just watch it. You can see all the early signs of greatness. Now he needs to make another film! 8/10
