THANK YOU FOR CRUISING BY
This website is a labor of love, and more labor is put into it than one might think, while the payoff isn't that great and there's often lazy bouts where watching movies is far easier than reviewing them, but Cult Film Freaks Dot Com will always move onward, unlike many other blogs, and won't ever go away...
