The Strangers (2008)

I've been meaning to review this one ever since I saw it in theaters. Well, for the sake of not having one of the TWILIGHT the first blog you see when you come to my blog, I felt the need to review this.

This film was probably one of the most tense movies I've seen in a long time. I got a little freaked out by it and I have to say that I thought it was honestly one of the best horror-esque movies I've seen in years. I got sick of the same stuff every time I would watch a horror film, but this movie made me remember why I loved them so much. And it was perfect. I honestly thought this movie did everything right, for once because you never see that anymore.

It really worked on the basic fear that any human being has. Being a lone in the house, and things going bump in the night. Being mentally fucked with beyond belief, with no rhyme or reason. Emotions run high, chills up and down your spine, you're helpless, as the fear takes over. This film is dangerous and scary. I can't imagine why a horror fan wouldn't dig this one.

Bryan Bertino both wrote and directed this flick, and he did an amazing job at that. He is great with his framing, shots, as well as overall pacing when it comes to setting up a scare, as well as the execution of it. The relationship between Kristen and James (Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman) was great. Their on screen chemistry worked very well.

A planned sequel is in the works. I was originally a little hesitant about it once I read about it, but as I looked more into it, I say 'bring it on,' because I cannot wait to see what the 'Strangers' have in store for us next time.

More Sparkly Shit: New Moon (2009)

Well, I brought this upon myself. I decided to grin and bear the consequences I bestowed upon watching TWILIGHT yesterday, and NEW MOON today. And boy, was it quite the experience. And I don't mean that positively in any way. If you read my TWILIGHT review, you'll know exactly what I am talking about.

Now, my review for NEW MOON is a bit different than how I previously reviewed TWILIGHT. This is going to be in bulletin form, because as I watched it, I wrote down any and all thoughts that were popping into my head during that time. Now, don't cancel out the amount of anger I bestowed upon the first installment, as that was still readily in full force while watching this installment as well.

- Dating a 109 year old man. Yes, it is gross. Sagtastic balls, all wrinkly. Less sparkles!

- Jacob is "filling out?" Yep, butt injections and terrible hair. I'm sure he'd get along great with soap dropping baseball players.

- Edwards choice of romantic words are terrible. He's still an asshole, coated over by goofy smiles and constipated expressions.

- All of the actors seem like they're really tired, or don't want to be there. As if they're simply there for the check. The only actor that I feel as if really cares about ANY of this is by Billy Burke (playing Bella's dad.)

-Paper cut scene: HILARIOUS.

- Oh no, are they breaking up? Good. Maybe she'll get some fucking brains in her skull. Oh wait, this is TWILIGHT...she's dumb as shit.

-"I'm Coming." "Bella, I don't want you to come." *snicker, giggle, teehee.*

- After Edward left her in the woods, I really wanted the tree's to go all EVIL DEAD and rape the shit out of her. And for a little extra enjoyment...kill her.

- All werewolves must be half-naked Indians. It's a rule. A rule of life. How could I have forgotten this? Stupid.

- Bella must smell like total ass after sitting there for 3 months straight, over something so fucking stupid. Dumb bitch.

- Edward Ghost-Apparition? Time to bust out the Proton Packs, bitches! *Sings Ghostbusters theme.*

- So, she's a reckless little twit, now? Okay...sure. An "Adrenaline Junkie?" Save yourself some time...kill yourself.

- "Face Punch" for a movie title? Really. Must star Nicolas Cage.

- The CGI wolves in this movie look TERRIBLE.

- When the hell could werewolves hear each others thoughts? And what kind of muffins are they eating? They better be chocolate chip.

- Bella really seems to have a thing for controlling, maniacal, self absorbed little shits. What's next? A mongoloid brought back from the dead via a mad scientist?

- Dakota Fanning. Yep. That's all I have to say about that.

- The only positives of the past two films have been the character of Alice (played by Ashley Greene). So perky, cute, yet darkly mysterious. Everything else = shit.

March 27, 2010, I mean TWILIGHT. (2008)

Well, after all of the harsh comments I have thrown around in my time towards all that is TWILIGHT, I finally decided to swallow my pride give the first film of the TWILIGHT series a viewing. And here we go... *Warning: Curse words throughout, and this movie enrages me to no end.*

This film, and all it apparently stands for, or at least what it tries to give to its audience, is nothing but two hours of pure nonsensical BULL SHIT. This is not the Vampires I know and love, for Stephanie Meyer has taken perhaps the biggest diarrhea of a shit known to man by having her "novels" adapted to the screen, penned by Melissa Rosenberg and directed by Catherine Hardwicke. This film, beginning to end, can go right ahead and suck my asshole.

I'm not going to go into specifics of the story, as I'm sure it's all been beaten over your head so many times by now, that you probably don't even have to see the movie to know anything about it. Edward Cullen is a creepy as fuck, maniacal, controlling little prick back of a fucktard...and Bella Swan is so fucking thickheaded and oblivious to the world around her that I just wanted this bitch to die. The acting in this film was atrocious, story...well, I could write my own novel on how this story is fucking terrible beyond belief. And what the hell was up with Jackson Rathbone's acting in this flick? He was GREAT in 'Clive Barkers: DREAD.' In this? I think he was told to just stand there with his eyes all bugged open and act confused:

The chemistry between the two characters of Edward and Bella seriously reminded me 100% of the relationship between the real life couple of Rod Ferrell and Heather Wendorf. What I mean is this: Heather was completely under Rod's spell, a different form of Love, if you will. He was always controlling, no matter how terrible of a person he may be. But that didn't matter at all to her, she loved him. So, she tells him that her parents are abusing her...and to make a long story short, he along with his "Vampire Clan", decide to go ahead and kill her parents. I really do not feel like getting into a lot of it, but if you want to read more on his crazy ass, click here. I was merely stating how that's what I was thinking of when I saw the interaction between Edward and Bella.

Now, I haven't read any of the Twilight books, and I am only basing my opinions simply off of the films...but I'm entitled to that. I can share my opinions on something no matter how derogatory my words may be, because I'm very open minded. And when something, to me, sucks SO much, I can say whatever the hell I damn well please about it.

I'm sure 22 year-old actor Robert Pattinson's not a bad person in real life, but that doesn't keep me from wanting him to experience trauma simply for looking like he does in this completely overused photograph. I think his look sums up why I hate vampires 88% of the time ALL OF THE TIME. With each new Vampire tale to come along, in film form, they seem to break down the essence and folklore of what made the Vampire noir so interesting and mysterious...and Twilight successfully takes the biggest, juiciest, Shit on all of that.

Vampires have become VERY dumb. Twilight is dumb (I've read zero pages and it's probably good but I'll never know because I don't want to be wrong when it comes to horrible vampire bullshit). That this will be a phenomenon is dumb. You pay to see this? You're dumb. For christ sakes, the new wave of Vampires is sickening. True Blood had a lot of hype behind it, but ended up becoming a steaming pile of cow dung, and I don't understand why anyone can see some form of entertainment from that show...though, I guess it must be all the HBO Sex scenes and things of the sort. But I have to hand it to the fan base of Twilight, because they take the cake. They are the most rabid and quick to fight of any out there. Which is pretty incredible considering how lame and easy their beloved property is.

is by most accounts teen gothic literature for those unwilling to hunt out the decent stuff out there.

Leprechaun (1993)

Leprechaun is a fantastic B-Movie. It's all there: Bad acting, ridiculous plot, Jennifer Aniston. Anyway, I like how they incorporated all of the Leprechaun lore from being a shoe fanatic, to their being gold at the end of a rainbow. Any "knowledge" you have of Leprechauns will either be expanded upon in this film, or have it beat over your head via all kinds of silliness.

I like how the Leprechaun's behavior is based simply on manners. It's not nice to steal his gold, or make fun of the guy...regardless, he's going to kill you anyway, even death by Pogo stick. There is a lot of little stuff to take in and look out for when watching this flick. "3 guys that paint" is the name of the Painting company...nice. As well as the Leprechaun's interactions with a knock off box of Lucky Charms, ending with him spitting the cereal out in disgust.

There is so much B-Movie criteria that fits into this film, there is almost too much to list.

None of the Leprechaun films are what I would consider good films. They are all popcorn fun little movies. The films are those kind of films that one would consider to be "so bad that they are good films." Then again, movies like Ghoulies, Troll, and Critters make the Leprechaun films look like 5 star academy award winners. They are far from good, they are mainly horror films that make you laugh and entertain you. It's hard not to laugh at shit in the first Leprechaun like the tricycle ride, the fact that they were throwing shoes at the Laprechaun to shine to pre-occupy him so they could get away. And even was it 2 or 3 where the guy was turning into a Leprechaun and he then had a craving for potatoes, assuming Irish people eat a lot of potatoes?

I'm a sucker for the Leprechaun, Ghoulies, mostly anything Full Moon, and stuff like that. Sometimes I just need a break from the real world of paying bills to just let my mind relax in a fantasy world as corny as that sounds.

Shutter Island (2010)

Saw this last night, and I absolutely loved it. Yes, there is some talk about the ending already swirling around the wild world of the internet, inevitably spoiling it for those who either haven't read the book nor seen the film yet. But, even if it was spoiled for you, there is so much more to it than what some people may/may not be don't let there stupid attempts at ruining a movie for you get you down, or give up hope on the film.

It's a deep movie. It's not just about the "what," it's also about the "why."

Most people that watch it can probably figure some things out. The story takes a few turns that throw you off track. And that's where the movie definitely plays with your head. But even if you know what is happening, figuring out why it is happening is just as important and is not easily apparent. The characters were great. The story was great. The visuals and atmosphere were awesome. I like how the ending was almost ambiguous. You can interpret it either way.

It was great to see a film finally get all of those psychological and psychiatrical things right, too.

The whole thing is about layers, which is what Film Noirs do. They have a lot of "little" stories that layer on top of each other. They are often subtle that way everything else takes center stage, which is the beauty of it. If the story is the weak part, then overall, the movie succeeded, because that is the intention.

There are so many layers on top of layers, if you focus on the emotional part of the story, you will get shortchanged. As far as film noir goes, the layers thing isn't just exclusive to it, but it is one of the main traits. It is supposed to be dark, mysterious, subtle, with a lot of conspiracy talk. The Dream sequences in the film were superb, as they came across as almost otherworldly, and Scorsese was able to get these images and feelings across superbly. Simply because the way they were shot, as well as the sounds, they felt as if they could be dreams/nightmares that anyone could have, or has had. Those scenes were some of the best I've seen in a big commercial movie in years.

Leonardo DiCaprio gave a VERY passionate and convincing performance. Post Titanic, He's become one of my favorite actors, and man, some of his scenes in this movie were gut-wrenching.

Is there a shorter word for "amazing film that had me interested every second which had great actors, great story, and shocking plot twists"? Oh yeah - Shutter Island.

Jason X (2001)

After the release of the 9th Friday the 13th film (now being produced under New Line Cinema), seven years would pass without a new Jason film while "Freddy Vs. Jason" lingered in limbo. One thing led to another and eventually Jason X was born.

According to original Friday the 13th director Sean Cunningham, the project was green lit to keep Jason fresh in the minds of the movie-going audience until Freddy Vs. Jason hit screens. So in other words, Jason X was merely a marketing tool, nothing more. This move made it clear to many fans that he was not concerned with sustaining a loyalty with the fan base. This becomes quite obvious after seeing the film.

Now, the flaws with this film are quite obvious. Ever since The Final Friday (part 4), it seemed as if Cunningham and those he hired were intentionally insulting the fans in an attempt to destroy and kill off the good name of Friday the 13th. At least The Final Friday was set at Jason's original hunting grounds, but now space? Not only should they have learned for a second time that doing something different with this series doesn't work, but they also didn't take into consideration that throwing an iconic character into space doesn't work either.

We've seen the unpleasant results of placing the Leprechaun and Pinhead into space, but now Jason? James Isaac, director of Jason X, claims to have wanted to do something so different with the Jason legacy, but when we take a general look at the horror genre, the space theme is not that uncommon.

In regards to when the film would take place, setting the film in the future was clever, in that it gave much leeway for changes to occur to the character. In this respect, setting the film in the future acted as a kind of loophole for many problems, such as the new mask and flesh. It also set the film outside the continuous timeframe of the pervious films. This eliminates the same struggle fans had with The Final Friday. With The Final Friday, where we knew it was set in the same time frame due to the minimal change in technology, setting, etc.
But with Jason X, we know its outside the time frame because it tells us so and we can see it for ourselves from the environment, therefore, we don't struggle with the question of where it belongs in the series. In Jason X, although the Paramount spirit of Jason had been resurrected to hack up teens in good eighties fashion, the feel and setting of the film distracted fans from the long-gone Jason mentality that returned to the series.

Jason had a new look, new arsenal, new turf, and new century. It was fast paced, flashy, and hardly aggressive, unlike the original films without all the mystical aspects to bog down the pace as with the previous film. Although the film did work logically to some extent, the fans didn't want it. I didn't want it. But I saw it in theaters opening weekend anyway...when I should have seen Spiderman.

To most fans, a futuristic Jason in space is like having anchovies on your ice cream. Could you have ice cream with anchovies? Of course you could, but would you want it? Probably not. Anchovies don't belong on ice cream and Jason didn't belong in space. Placing him in space would soon make Jason X the major embarrassment of the series.

Stephen King's: Silver Bullet (1985)

Due to the recent passing of Corey Haim, I popped this bad boy in today shortly after news had broke out. Now, I had not seen this movie in quite some time (probably as far back as a teenager), but I had many fond memories of the film, so I knew I was still going to enjoy it.

And you know what? I definitely did. At it's core, it still has a great story, cast, setting, characters, etc. Corey Haim plays the innocent type very well in this flick, and I think the whole aspect to the character of 'I'm telling the truth!' is something that a lot of us can resonate with at some point in our lives. Gary Busey, is...well...80's Gary Busey, but nicer of course, seeing as he is after all playing Uncle Red (an alcoholic trying to overcome that side of himself due to a recent divorce.) Everett McGill plays Reverend Lowe fairly well. Granted, we don't know too much about him (other than one fucked up dream he has, which still freaks me out to this day.) His confrontation with Marty (Haim) at the abandoned bridge is a great scene, too.

I know An American Werewolf in London and The Howling usually get all the praise, but for my money, THIS is the best Werewolf movie of the 80's. Hands down. I think based partially on the fact that I watched this film MANY times as a kid, that it inevitably stuck with me, based largely on Corey Haim, being a Werewolf movie.

I think the film works well as a coming of age story with all the Horror elements thrown in for good measure. The Horror elements aren't too far fetched, given what we're dealing with. A Decapitated head here, slashed face there, beatings with Baseball Bat (via Werewolf, of course), but not the amount of 'too much' to go off into a different direction than what it was aiming for. It definitely plays on suspense.

Feel like reliving an old classic, or honoring Corey Haim in the Horror Universe (besides The Lost Boys?) Then pick this bad boy up.

R.I.P Corey Haim


As some of you may already know, Corey Haim has passed away at the age of 38 to an accidental overdose. While this news is sad in it's own right, I feel the need to explain myself as to why his death is pretty near and dear to me.

I am a child of the 80's and 90's film era. Granted, yes, I was born in 86, but the way I was raised, I was opened up to practically the entire decade of the 80's of which film had to offer. And apart from all the Horror that sticks out, I distinctly remember Corey Haim, particularly "The Lost Boys." I grew up on that. Same goes for "Lucas" and "Stephen Kings: Silver Bullet." His death just feels like a low blow to my childhood.

I mean, sure, there will always be people who say "Why do you care, it's not like you knew him." (I heard that when Heath Ledger passed) But, Celebrity deaths that get me all worked up are close to me because I either grew up on watching them, or I really admired what they did in the world of film. And, I am a huge Pop Culture of the 80's and 90's geek, so it's going to get to me, regardless if I knew them personally or not. It's the same case if someone pretty young cried over the passing of John Ritter, or maybe even their favorite musician. The person was able to make some sort of connection in your life and you make some sort of bond with them. It only makes sense to be a little crushed when news of their passing comes out. I mean, just look at how many lives Michael Jackson touched, and see the outpouring of grief and hurt when he passed away.

I distinctly remember being really young and hearing about John Candy passing away. That recked me. Same goes for Chris Farley. I was a young shy fat kid, so in a way I looked up to Farley, and I used my weight as a source for humor, so when Farley passed I was totally distraught.

I remember on the one year anniversary of Heath Ledgers passing, we watched a good handful of his Movies. From 10 Things I hate about you, A Knight's Tale, Lords of Dogtown, Candy, etc. It's because we all admired him as an actor, the craft he brought to acting, and who he was.

So, to be blunt, do NOT give me shit when it comes to a Celebrity passing that you just may not "understand" why I feel the way I do. You may not get it, but I sure do.

My Thoughts on the Oscar's Horror Tribute

Something that was the talk of a lot of people in the Horror Community was Sunday Nights Oscars. Not just for the slew of awards that The Hurt Locker got (which is definitley deserved, as it's a great film), or the fact that Sandra Bullock walked away with Best Actress...but the Horror Tribute which was presented to us.

First off, why did we have Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart present this tribute? Now, I don't know anything about these people, other than the fact that they star in some pretty shitty films, but what makes them have the qualifications to present a tribute video to a genre that has been so overlooked by the Academy for decades. If anything, we should have gotten an actor who got their start in Horror, and became something after the fact in the world of Hollywood. Hell, I may not have the greatest opinion on Johnny Depp, but I think it would have been perfect had he presented. Maybe even Kevin Bacon, for that matter. It didn't make matters any better either when there was a split second clip from New Moon thrown in there.

I guess in a way this video was presented during the awards ceremony as a way for the Academy to say that, "Yes. We get it. You people don't shut up about it, we disregard the genre for a reason, blah blah blah, will this video make you feel better?" And, in a way, the tribute did. As a life long Horror fan I was giddy with excitement for the fact that a genre I hold near and dear to my heart was being given some sort of Acknowledgement by a group that has always been known to shun such films. To me, as a Horror fan, it was great to see it get some recognition. And hell, I was blown away by the footage they used, since I didn't think they would show most of the characters that they did. Jason, Freddy, Leatherface, Chucky, Leprechaun, Ash, etc. It was great.

In hindsight, this could also sadly be looked at as a ploy to try and attract a younger audience to the Awards. Granted, I don't really understand that mentality either, seeing as I guarantee you that most of the people of the TWILIGHT crowd probably have no fucking clue about most of the movies shown in the tribute.

So, I guess I can say I was really satisfied with it. Could have done without New Moon and Beetlejuice being thrown in there, but it definitely did it's job: Make this Horror fan happy and proud to love the genre for all these years.

Sidenote: The tribute I embedded above starts at about 1:12, but the video starts off with Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin's Paranormal Activity spoof. And don't you fret, whoever uploaded this to YouTube was smart and edited out those crazy Twilight kids' introduction.

Whatever happened to...

Whatever happened to the days when Horror films used to scare us? The days when a story could garner such a response from the viewer that would make their palms sweaty, heart beat just a little faster, shoulders hunched, knowing full well that something is about to happen. It's all psychological. To be able to move someone with such a feeling of horror, dread, fear...takes tremendous talent in both writing, and directing.

I'll tell you what happened. Companies started to care less and less about what the product had to give, and only focused all of it's attention on the look, style, and whatever they could to make it look nice. They threw proper characterization out the window, and decided to go with the 'perfect' looking group of people. The type of people who you know don't really exist in today's world. The type of people who you can't identify with, nor give a shit if they were whacked off at any given point in the movie. They're practically making you root for the bad guy, and all of the glorious splendor of gore, tits and ass that comes along with it.

Money also became a big issue. No more were companies looking for a product that they believed in 100% because they knew they had something special, to push the very boundaries of film making just so someone could get their shot at presented a unique story. Dollar signs are all that matter now. Box office is all that matters now. Not the story, the product, the writing, etc. If they feel that this isn't going to make their companies wallets fatter or bank accounts sky rocket, then it doesn't matter, and will just become trash bin clutter.

Give me someone to look forward to. Give me something, that by hearing murmurings on the internet, watching trailers or clips, that will allow the film to stand out in a way to say "This is what you've been waiting for." A film that undoubtedly takes everything I have ever wanted out of a scare, and packs it into an hour and a half (or longer.) Take me on a thrill ride. And once that ride is over...I'll never forget it.

Think back, to the very first time you ever saw a Horror film. The first time it scared you. All those mixed emotions you were feeling. In a way, it was such a rush of adrenaline, while scaring you, it also excited you. Now, being 23 years old, and with my vast experience of being raised off of Horror films, I have yet to experience those feelings from a film for quite some time (since I was 6, to be exact).

That's all I'm asking. Scare me.

The Representation of Horror.

Movies like Pumpkinhead 2, Leprechaun 1 and 2, Ghoulies II, Army of Darkness and so on were movies on the shelf at the video stores in the early to mid 90's.

I know everyone has their own decade or period that is special to them in Horror, and this time is definitely the time for me. My older brother and I would check out the shelves in the Horror aisle for what seemed like hours, trying to decide which movie we would inevitably see that night or weekend. I know for the longest time that there were several VHS box arts that had a lasted impression on me for years to come, and I still remember them to this day. The mystery contained on the cover of these plastic cases was enough sometimes. But, even when we did watch one, there was still some mystery behind it. Something I appreciate to this day.

I look at each of these movies as an event to a place you know you cannot travel to. It's like the movie is letting you be a part of something you would have missed otherwise...and it's presented just for you. Though you can say that for any movie, these movies carry the heaviest of this load because they've become cult classics. I dare you to walk up to anyone on the street and ask them if they've seen Dr. Giggles, I guarantee you there response will be "What the fuck is that?" But, with that response, you know it's something special.

There are a lot of stipulations for a movie to fit into this category of Horror. First off, it needs to take place in a small town, or some place secluded. And in this location we'll need an old fable or an antagonist from the past that happens to be making itself known again. Then, you'll need a group of kids that are from out of town, or a group of kids who live in town that happen to have some sort of connection to the antagonist, or perhaps a parent/relative that does. The ending also has to have a feeling of resolution so that there is no possible way a sequel can be made...even if these movies do have sequels.

The film quality needs to look as if it's from the past, and if it's on VHS...even better! But, it can definitely NOT be High Definition, that'll spoil it all. The movie has to be fun in some way, as well as low budget... but not too low budget, as the love for the product needs to come across on screen. It also cannot be overly sexual, gorey, or violent because it makes the movie jump into another genre. A little sex here, a little blood there, but no intestines on the floor or full frontal, that's too much.

The thing that is reappearing needs to be something totally unbelievable or over the top ridiculous. Amazing music is also a key factor which makes any film a 90's cult classic. Don't think of music in the sense of 'Saved by the Bell' either, because that would totally tarnish what the hell I am getting at. Obviously, a lot of movie that fit into all of this criteria come off as average B-Movies, but when you take into account my memories of this era, I'm a little biased. I happen to like these kinds of films a lot more than I'm sure a lot of other people would.

If you have some sort of a kinship to the early to mid 90's scene of Horror, then I know you'll definitely appreciate what I am trying to say. They give off a certain aura that movies today definitely do not give me at all.

A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

A Nightmare on Elm Street is amazing. It has the ability to make you jump, squirm, and not want to fall asleep for a while. The idea that someone can die, or be killed in a nightmare is frightening enough. The whole idea of "when do dreams and reality mold together?" But, add Freddy Krueger to the mix, and you've got yourself one hell of a scary movie.

Wes Craven made a film with a perfect mix of gore and psychological horror which inevitably will have you covering your eyes, but also peaking out to see what will happen next. I can't even begin to imagine the amount of kids who saw this movie, or even the trailer for that matter, and wouldn't go to sleep. As far back as I can recall, this film did extend my "Go to bed!" time to a few hours, because I definitely did not want to fall asleep after seeing this film at a tender age.

The character of Freddy, given the back story we're given, is one nasty fellow. A filthy child murderer who is let go because of a technicality, with some hints of potential molestation to boot, the parents took the law into their own hands and torched him for getting away with such heinous crimes. So, of course, he comes back, haunting the children of said parents who torched his Striped Sweater wearing ass, with revenge in his heart, and a kick ass glove to dish it all out with.

Robert Englund played the role perfectly. He had a certain swagger to him, almost to the point of showcases that Freddy did indeed take some sort of pleasure in killing the children of Elm Street.

So many memorable scenes: Tina being dragged up the walls and ceiling, being killed by an unseen Freddy, Glen being sucked into his bed by Freddy resulting in a huge geyser of blood shooting out. Great stuff.

This is actually Johnny Depps first film, and if you're reading my blog, you probably very well knew that already.

As far as Nightmares are concerned, this is a film that every Horror fan deserves to have in their library, and I guarantee that this is one movie you won't fall asleep during.
