I’ve had Zero time to watch any new movies lately. A sick kid with coughing and not one but 2 eye infections….A crazy-ass dog and nasty cough myself that’s helping the kid keep me up at night. It’s been an actual horror show in my own household!

I plan on getting back on the horse tonight… so help me. I’m running back to back chainsaw movies. The 2003 version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre followed up by The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. Believe it or not, even though the Chainsaw Massacre franchise with the exception of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation is at the tippy top of my favorites list, I have only seen the 2003 version once and never saw ‘The Beginning’ at all. I can’t wait to run these back to back (God Willing). I’m as giddy as a school girl on her first date with the bad boy she meets around the corner so her parents don’t pull lock down on her!!

The Fourth Kind

98 min  -  Mystery | Sci-Fi | Thriller  -   6 November 2009 (USA)

This is about an ongoing unsolved mystery in Alaska, where a town has seen an extraordinary number of unexplained disappearances over the past 40 years and there are accusations of a federal cover up.

This movie had mixed reviews. Frankly, this movie scared the crap out of me and I’m not sure why. I suppose the occasional blood curdling screams or the spine chilling moments of bodily contortions. The movie is portrayed as based on true events supported with ‘Actual video and sound footage’. However, you do the google research and draw your own conclusion if any of it actually happened or if it was some clever ploy to sell tickets.

I loved the movie. Will I watch it again? Heck no. I really did scare me. I don’t know anyone that was as freaked out by this one as much as me. The movie was believable to me. I found it, for the most part very plausible regardless of the fact that I don’t believe in Aliens or that we’re being visited by UFOs or any of that non-sense.  I recommend checking this movie out.

Cabin in the Woods (2011)

January 25, 2013 by  
Filed under Reviews

Directed by Drew Goddard

Five friends take off for a get-away to a remote cabin in the woods, only to find that they are not going to have the fun get-away as they expected. Together, they must discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods.

Not know anything about this movie before watching it, I expected nothing more than the typical slasher flick about some kids going into the woods to smoke pot, drink, have sex and get butchered up one by one leaving a girl running and screening through woods for her life.

I couldn’t have been more wrong. I loved this movie. Yes, it did have a small group of kids that go into the woods to smoke week and drink. Yes it did have kids trying to do the naked worm dance. But this movie actually had, dare I say it, a reason! This was no movie about kids getting hammered by booze and then hammered by a lunatic. You find out right from the beginning of the movie that there was a reason for these particular kids to go to the cabin. I’m not going to say more about that. The movie was original and had a great story that wasn’t wasted on a crappy screenplay and shitty acting. Huge kudos goes to the makers of this film. Straight off from the beginning of the movie right to the fantastic ending I glued to the screen loving every minute of it. This is a good movie that is quick paced and felt like it went quickly and it was really fun to watch. I loved the end complexly.

Kill Katie Malone (2010)

January 25, 2013 by  
Filed under Articles

Directed by Carlos Ramos Jr

A few College students & best friends Ginger Matheson, Jim Duncan, and Kyle “Dixie” Canning, pitch in to buy a “ghost in a box” in an online auction. And as you’d expect in any B rate horror movie, nothing good comes of it.

This was mediocre at best. I was obvious and sometimes boring. Gee wiz, let’s buy a ghost in a box in which grants wishes. Haven’t these people seen the movie “The Gate” back in the 80’s whereas some dorky kid trying to look like a rocker and his goofy friends open a gate to the underworld and when they wished for stuff. Then got it but it all turned to CRAP!?

Okay, so, nothing turns to Crap. However, my mood did when I found myself watching this movie. There is nothing new original about this one. It’s a just another Ghost revenge story in which the Ghost seeks revenge on unrelated to the people that wronged her, Lame. At best, this would be a so-so made for TV movie that doesn’t even need to be edited. It’s quite possible that it actually was made for TV and I just missed the memo. I just didn’t think that it made any sense. I will say this, the acting and direction of the movie was fine. I couldn’t even tell they were acting (Tongue is now pressing against my cheek).

Let Me In (2010)

January 20, 2013 by  
Filed under Reviews

A young boy who’s being bullied at school becomes friends with his female neighbor in the apartment next door.  As it turns out, the girl is a vampire.

This is a remake of the Norway movie “Let the right one in” which was release 2 years earlier. The movies are quite similar up to about the half way point. But “Let the right one in” then becomes a bit darker than “Let me in”. If you don’t mind reading movies, I suggest watching the original. It was better than the remake as is the usually the case.

Exactly who categorized this movie?? Seriously, aren’t horror movies supposed to somewhat scary or even the slightest bit creepy?  Note to self, next time I see a movie in categorized as Horror, Drama AND Mystery be prepared for anything but to be creeped out. Don’t get me wrong, I actually did like the movie. I like dramas. It’s just that going into a movie that it billed as Horror and the trailer looks like it’s a spooky movie, I want to be spooked. There were some scenes that were a bit violent, which you’d expect from a vampire movie. But, personally, I didn’t find this any more of a horror movie than the Twilight movies.

The vampire, Abby, is played by Chloe Grace Moretz who was great in the movie. She also played Mindy in the movie “Kick-Ass” and will be starring as Carrie in the anticipated remake of “Carrie”. The boy next door, Owen, is played by Lodi Smit-McPhee who played opposite Viggo Motensen in the movie “The Road”. He will also be playing Bevolio in the next “Romeo and Juliet” set to release year.

The movie is good and I do recommend seeing it. I liked it. Just don’t expect to be scared. It’s not a very scary movie at all.

V/H/S (2012)

January 17, 2013 by  
Filed under Reviews

A group hoodlum friends is hired to burglarize a house and obtain a specific VHS tape. However, as they start viewing some of the tapes, the find out that there is more found footage than they bargained for.

The movie is a compilation of multiple stories. Typically, I don’t go for the multiple different stories in one movie (Creep show as the example). However, it worked in this movie since the crooks were there to steal a particular tape and decided to review some of the tapes that were already either in the player or near it.

The Good about this movie was that it gave some creepy moments. The gory parts were ridiculous (in a good way). Without giving to much away…think intestines…Also, The acting was good. In this case, I actually didn’t mind the different stories in a single movie. it made sense. There were a few moments in this one that gave the the ‘holy shit’ reaction. Typically, I’ve seen it all in horrors so that is a huge plus.

The Bad about this movie. It’s just shy of 2 hours. 10 minutes could have easily been trimmed from 2 of the ‘video footage’ stories shaving off 20 minutes. It would have made the movie flow better and keep the momentum. I would have enjoyed this much more if it was a little shorter.

Overall, I did like the movie. You have to no mind ‘handy-cam’, ‘shaky-cam’ or whatever you want to call it because that was the entire film. If you don’t like that movie style, don’t waste your time on this one.

The Devil’s Rain (1975)

January 17, 2013 by  
Filed under Reviews

The movie is about a Satanic cult in middle American that have the awesome ability giving them the power to melt their victims. The fun comes in when one of the children of an earlier victim is out to destroy them and their cult.

The Devil’s Rain came out in 1975 starring Ernest Borgnine, William Shatner, John Travolta & Tom Skerritt. I saw this movie years later, sometime in the early 80′s when I was a kid. This movie scared the crap out of me and I loved every minute of it.

It’s the first movie that I can recall the melting of someone’s face. Of course that vision was immortalized in the ending scene of Raiders of the lost ark. Though I haven’t seen it for quite some time, I cannot wait to see it again. Though I’m sure it cannot stand up to the scare and creeps that we get from today’s horror moves but I’m certain, especially for an old horror movie, that it will make me think twice about befriending strangers in a small town on a road trip.

The special affects in this one are actually quite good for being a 1975 movie with the limited technical computer generated techniques that are used today. As for the acting, well, just look at who the starring cast is and it speaks for itself.

I definitely suggest giving this one a try, I’m sure that it’s available for streaming on Amazon. It’s not available for streaming on NetFlix but they may have it on DVD.

The Evil Dead (1981)

January 15, 2013 by  
Filed under Reviews

The premise is simple… Five friends take a trip to a cabin in the woods (big shock  there) where they unknowingly release flesh-possessing demons.

With a remake of the movie The Evil Dead on the horizon. I couldn’t help but to revisit the original. This campy & obvious low budget banger is one of my favorite old horror movies. If you haven’t seen this one yet, I strongly suggest it, especially if you plan on seeing the remake. Yes, it’s a low budget film… yes, it’s campy, yes it has strange dark humor and finally, yes it has a bazar tree-vine sex scene, but still … this is a must see for any horror movie person. It’s not a very scary movie but it has its moments. I’m not a huge fan of low budget movies, simply for the fact that the acting is usually extremely bad (which makes me see why actors like Leonardo DiCaprio & Colin Farrell get paid so much). But there’s something about this one that makes me a lover. Maybe it has some nostalgia attached to it having me recall watching it with friends cracking up and having a good time in the 80s. I was probably high at the time.

This was Sam Raimi’s first full length movie. As sound effects, he used high-tech techniques such as breaking celery stalks in half to simulate the breaking of bones. With that kind of ingenuity back in the 80’s, how can you Not be a fan. I am curious how the remake on this is going to be. If they make it too scary and not campy with dark humor, then boooo. Those are part of the reasons the original is loved by many. To me, it’s one of the best horrors of the 80’s, not that the 80’s produced the best horrors of all times.

Incidious

This movie is basically about a family that flees the home that they are living in because it’s haunted. However, after having not even unpacked their things in their new home, the haunting continues.  They learn that it’s not the house that’s haunted but their eldest son.

This was a good movie, directed by James Wan, starring Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne. I wouldn’t say that it’s a very scary movie but it’s definitely creep. This did remind me of some old horror movies. Parts in particular were almost a modern day take on the movie Poltergeist. Typically, ghost movies scare the crap out of me. This didn’t really leave me checking my closet before bed and I sit through it without looking over my shoulder every 5 minutes. But I dug it. I thought it was fun.  I was not disappointed by this one.

Anytime there is a Kid in a horror movie about spirits or demons or anything paranormal, I typically go in assuming that it’s going to be a good creeper. Though, this movie had a couple kids in it and one of them was the main focus per-say, there were not a lot of creepy kid moments like the kid standing over the parents bed with a knife or singing/humming bazaar oddities. Or my personal favorite, the redrum business that the kid gave his mom in The Shinning. This flick was missing that aspect and it would have been nice to get creeped out by I didn’t really notice it absence as I was watching the DVD.

Whoa… Now this looks like a very scary movie indeed. This is about 2 girls left to fend for themselves, living in what appears to be a house abandoned for years. They are taken in by their uncle and that is when the real fun begins. It seems that they really weren’t alone after all. It doesn’t seem to be like one of the old horror movies from the 80′s or 90′s. This has a new, original feel to it. The movie looks creepy as hell and I cannot wait to see this one.

Carrie (2013)

January 4, 2013 by  
Filed under News

This proves to be an interesting remake I’m looking forward to seeing. Chloe Grace Moretz plays Carrie. She was great in the movie “Let Me In” and kick ass in the movie “Kick Ass”. I’m interested to her in this role. Her mother is played by Julianne Moore who even though is an amazing actress, I personally cannot see her being the wicked, bible-thumping bitch that she needs to be to pull this role off.

Hopefully, this will be reminiscent of the old horror movies from back in the day.

Lets add it up: They made “The Rage: Carrie 2″ in 1999 and it flopped. They did a made for TV movie “Carrie” in 2002 and I thought that it sucked. With Chloe Grace Moretz & Julianne Moore playing the main characters, I have a good feeling about this one. I hope I’m right. 

However, my true and overall thought on this is…. Awesome, another remake of a great classic. I guess that there are no more interesting movie scripts piling up on producer desks in Hollywood these days.

Evil Dead – remake to be released 2013

January 3, 2013 by  
Filed under News

Mia, a young woman struggling with sobriety, heads to a remote cabin with her brother and a group of friends, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads to danger and horror.

I love the original Evil Dead. Sam Raimi, in my opinion, knocked it out of the part. Only to be matched by Evil Dead 2. I cannot wait for this one! I just hope that it stays true to the form of the first one. I needs to be quirky, creepy & funny or I’ll be disappointed. or will I??

I hope that the powers that are involved with this remake don’t screw it up like we see with too many other remakes of great films. “A Nightmare on Elm St.” is a perfect example of a great, eerie, spooky and over kick-ass horror flick that was turned into a slow moving, boring non-creepy drama.

Madison County

The Story

A group of college kids travel to a small, mountain town called Madison County to interview the author of a tell-all book on the accounts of several grisly murders that happened there. But when the kids get to Madison County, the author is no where to be found and the towns people act like they haven’t seen him in years. They also say that the killer never existed and the murders never happened. However, when the kids start digging around to get their own answers, they find out that the stories may be more real than the townspeople are letting on!

My Thought ( SPOILER ALERT )

Written and Directed by Eric England, this movie falls short. I found it to be a little creepy but it didn’t go past that. The one kind of cool aspect of this movie is that there are no night scenes whatsoever. I thought that the killers mask was pretty eerie being a sewed on pigs head. There were too many loop holes in this movie to make it work for me. *Here Comes a Spoiler* … The entire small town was aware of this killer and basically supported and delivered his victims. Unless the reasoning for that was prominently displayed in this movie, it could never work. So not only do we find absolutely no background, rhyme or why the killer is hacking up these poor victims but to give no explanation as to why the town assists is nonsensical. The kill scenes weren’t even that great. As one who enjoys a good splatter kill scene, this movie definitely failed to deliver. I was hoping that Hopefully, this would be reminiscent of the old horror movies from back in the day but it kinda fell short.

This is just another “a bunch of kids going into the woods to be killed off” movie.    Blaa
