Monster Brawl

              Monster Brawl (2011), courtesy of Foresight Features & writer, director, editor, & producer Jesse T. Cook, is a mind numbing entry into the horror genre. And by mind numbing I don’t mean it blows you away, more like bores you to sleep. The premise for this flick, it’s not worthy of being called a film, is “what if” the WWE “wrestlers” were monsters.  Cook pits the Cyclops against Witch Bitch in a battle to the death, next up is Lady Vampire vs. The Mummy, followed by Swamp Gut vs. Werewolf, Frankenstein’s Monster vs. Zombie Man. All leading up to the final fight. Zzzzzzz……

              The actors playing the monsters are relative unknowns with this being their first and sometimes only feature. The cast is rounded out with Dave Foley, of The Kids in the Hall and Newsradio fame, doing fight commentary alongside Art Hindle, from 1974′s Black Christmas. They are joined by WWE manager Jimmy Hart as himself, obnoxious. Veteran actor, God of horror movies, and a man with the best voice since Vincent Price, Lance Henriksen, of too many friggin’ movies to list – he was Bishop from the Alien films – lends his voice (he was smart enough not to physically appear in this…) as God or narrator, it wasn’t clear but the credits say God.

              First up I must comment that while the digital effects were surprisingly good, the make-up effects could have been blended better so that they didn’t stand out as much. Most scenes appear if they were all shot separately of each other. Fight commentators don’t ever appear in the background during fights. Overall the movie reminds me of the boring crap they do about the fighters and their training before the fight is actually shown. The acting is decent, although Foley doesn’t seem that into it. Henriksen’s voice over comments throughout the fights just happen out of nowhere and while some sound reasonably placed others just sound odd and out of place.

              If you like cheesy wrestling, obnoxious Jimmy Hart and this silly premise, then by all means check the flick out. If you like your horror gory, bloody, scary, and good don’t waster your time.

The Human Centipede II

February 11, 2013 by  
Filed under Reviews

Inspired by the fictional Dr. Heiter, disturbed loner Martin dreams of creating a 12-person centipede and sets out to realize his sick fantasy.

Okay, I know in my review of the first Human Centipede movie that I would never watch that disturbing movie again. Well, I have not. This was part 2 and it was no less despicable than the first. Why on earth would I subject myself to a second dose of non-sensicle nasty?? I’ll say that I did it for the research for my blog. There could be no other valid reasoning.

In this twisted second helping, a warped fanatic of the movie “The Human Centipede” decides it would be in his best interest to re-create the movie. However, in stead of 3 people, he uses 12 (one being one of the actresses for the movie). In stead of him being a doctor performing the ‘surgeries’ in a sterile environment, he is a disgusting, dirty, slob of a man working in a parking garage who rents out a small warehouse to attache each person to one another.

This version is so so nasty it completely reproduces the ‘magic’ of the first film. Though it, much like the first movie, grossed me out completely, I have to admit that the film is a well made movie. It doesn’t come off as some poorly made, slapped together B rate horror with poor camera work and shitty acting. Will I ever watch this movie again? eh, just like I said in the first one….hell no. However, keep an eye out for my review of “The Human Centipede 3″ which is due out this year.

The Human Centipede

A mad scientist kidnaps and mutilates a trio of tourists in order to reassemble them into a new “pet”– a human centipede, created by stitching their mouths to each others’ rectums.

Whoa – This was one of the most, if not THE most disturbing movies that I’ve ever seen. I’ve seen many terror films in which people are tortured such as the “Hostel” movies and Wolf Creek but this movie, in my opinion has seriously crossed the line. It was grotesque. I mean, holy shit on a shingle….who comes up with this kind of thing. Let’s try to re-enact what the creator of this film thought the day he came up with this Gem…”I want to make a fun movie….I got it” “I’ll have someone kidnap 3 unsuspecting victims and sew 2 of there faces to the ASSs of the other 2″ “Oh Oh, even better, I’ll then force the first on the line to eat” …. well you can only imagine what comes next, huh? Only that of a warped mind in which I would never ever want to sit down to dinner with can think up this type of garbage, that’s for sure. Yikes, I’ll never sit through this one again. Ever.

The Haunting in Connecticut: Fact or Fiction?

February 4, 2013 by

As an Avid horror movie lover, I am even more intrigued with stories based on true events the most. The movie “The Haunting in Connecticut” is such a movie. The movie is about a family is forced to relocate to a new town and home for their son’s health. They begin experiencing supernatural behavior in their new home, which turns out to be a former mortuary.

My first thoughts of this movie being based on true events is “who in their right mind would move into a house that used to be a funeral home with the morgue as one of the bedrooms”? Well, after doing some research, I found that there actually was a family that moved into this house in Connecticut and that they said the events really did occur. Thy claimed to have been ‘haunted’ by evil spirits or demons or whatever you want to call them.

Below, I have posted photos of the actual house as well as the official movie trailer and a few interviews of the the paranormal investigator who looked into the claims and a few videos of Carmen Snedeker being interviewed. I also included the entire Sally Jessy show that the Snedekers appeared on in 1992.

Review the videos and decide for yourself if you belive the claims to be true or fabricated for the sake of fame and fortune.

Here is a short clip of the Paranormal investigator that looked into the validity of the case claimed by the Snedekers.

 Here is a short clip of the real Carmen Snedeker who is the Mother that reported the claims of haunting.

Here is the Sally Jesse show that the Snedekers appeared on in 1992 explaining in details what had occured and defending themselves from the naysayers.

Did this really happen? Were the Snedekers victims of a Ghostly assault?

YOU be the judge.
