My review of Storm Warning from 5 years ago on this thread...just another viewpoint!

20. Storm Warning (first-time viewing) - Great stuff! This is really three movies rolled into one: it starts out as a creepy atmospheric (and beautifully shot) thriller, then morphs into a more standard "weird family in the sticks" movie (with a bit of torture thrown in), then it really goes for the jugular in the third act, becoming an action-gore-horror finale (think of a female MacGyver with violent vengeful intentions!) The character of Poppy is one of the best (and by that I mean worst) bad guys to hit the screen in years.

Yes, the can was wonderful, but otherwise, for my taste, nothing really happened in this movie. I am not into suspense with nothing happening. Just my taste.

Bob, i just didnt see the gore you did i guess. I am a gore hound, and what was in this movie was greatly lacking, again for my personal taste.

A Blu-ray is needed by the way, hopefully we'll get something at some point. Jennifer Connelly takes control of the bugs, a very cool soundtrack featuring Iron Maiden and Motorhead among others. Believe me I truly hate insects but this is still one of Argento's best imo smile.gif I first saw it ages ago and it was very nice to revisit it.



My oct. 2013 horror list:
1. The Lords Of Salem
2. I Spit On Your Grave (2010)
3. The Others
4. I Saw The Devil
5. Plague Town
6. Phenomena

I just recently saw this movie too, but the Creepers version which is slightly longer than the Phenomena cut. +1 on needing a HD transfer of some sort.


That Frankensteins Army set with the toys is awesome!

Do you like ridiculous, over the top gore and blood? Check out Tokyo Gore Police, it is from Japan and pretty crazy too!

As the days go by, the members of the crew start to become affected by unseen forces that reside within the asylum and it eventually turns into unfortunate circumstances for all involved. Overall, I really liked this movie. It was definitely done with the intent of making you think to try to make sense of all that is happening. I’ll admit to having to rewind on a few occasions to make sure that I understood what exactly had occurred. The chemistry between the characters was very good and the acting, in general was right on the money. I loved the pacing and the subtle little hints and secrets that are revealed as you go. If you like psychological horror, you definitely have to give this one a go.

Glad you liked this one. Gotta love these little nuggets.

Re: Storm Warning - I think I liked that one but can''t remember anything other than what's being talked about.

Apparently Creepers was "slightly" shorter than the original cut... wink.gif
Quote:
For its U.S. release, Phenomena was retitled as Creepers by New Line Cinema and heavily edited to remove nearly thirty minutes of footage and went to U.S. theaters and drive-ins in August of 1985. The murder sequences were shortened by several seconds to remove gore, a sequence where the second victim is spotted and chased by the killer was removed, and two lengthy scenes (which make up the bulk of the missing footage) involving Jennifer Connelly's character telling her roommate the story about how her mother abandoned the family on Christmas Day (as Argento's own mother had done) and her character receiving a brain scan after the second murder were removed for the purposes of speeding up the flow of the film. The film was a box office hit in Italy gaining 515,034 admissions, and grossed €203,657 in Spain.[citation needed]
Anchor Bay released the film to DVD in 1999, restoring the film's proper title and all missing scenes from the original US release. The original cut (or Integral cut) of the film is available in Europe, on Region 2 DVD. The Integral cut (or Integral Hard, as it is known in Japan) never existed in English, but only in the dubbed Italian version, and adds only a few seconds of cut footage to some scenes, mostly of B-roll material.[2]
On March 7, 2011, Phenomena was released on Blu-ray in the UK, by film company Arrow. There are many special features on the disc, such as "The Making of Phenomena" and interviews with the director and cast, excluding Jennifer Connelly.

This movie definitely has that, but it is really over the top! It is worth a viewing and the main girl character was the same actress in Audition.

15. Toddlers and Tiaras. Guys I'm scared. Terrified even. My body aches from the hour I spent in the fetal position. I understand "sweating bullets." I've wept for our future. 5 stars.

Demonic? I thought that was the video game in Grandma's Boy? smile.gif

15. Phantasm 2. They up the action component in this continuation of their quest to defeat The Tall Man. Exotic weaponry highlights this. Unfortunately they increased his budget and the surreal elements are toned down here. It's still a great sequel. 3 stars



This movie has:

Quad barreled 12 gauge shotguns.
Hemicuda.
Shared dreams.
Broody post apocalyptic dead middle America.



16. Brain Damage. What a weird wonderful hour and a half this is. It explores addiction in an interesting way and I suppose it is a product of its time with JUST SAY NO and all that. There are some extremely weird kills in this off kilter story about a young man who is befriended by an alien worm that injects drugs into your brain as long as you keep him fed. I really enjoyed the effects as they were well done and interesting and should be a big draw for fans. Worth a look if you like weird and funny. FTV 3.5 stars

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01 Sized3000

This movie has:
Talking brain eating dildo aliens.
Withdrawal puke.
Inventive weird gore.
Mushroom style trips, not that I know anything about that.
Crazy spaghetti.
Alien pornographic finishing move like in Mortal Kombat.

Did not get a horror movie in last night becuase we were invited to an advance screening of Captain Phillips staring Tom Hanks. Based on the true events that transpired when a shipping vessel was attacked by pirates a few years ago and the captain taken hostage. Even knowing how the movie was going to end, the film was very intense and I would say this is the best role Tom Hanks has had since Castaway or Saving Private Ryan. Awesome movie and some very horrific moments even if it isn't a true horror genre film. Reality always is the most frightening anyway. Back to October horrorfest tonight. smile.gif

12, DeepStar Six, 1989, Sean S Cunningham IFCHD, My creature feature last night was this late 80's ocean monster flick. I haven't seen this movie probably since the 90's and I was happy that IFC shown it in it's OAR. IIRC during this time there were a lot of ocean type movies releasing like this, Leviathan, The Abyss etc. It was pretty cool to go back in time and see pre CG effects with models and stop motion photography. This movie takes place in the deep ocean floor and a group of Navy contractors are setting up a nuclear missile 'sled' at the bottom of the ocean. Well things go awry when they use explosives to bury a cave below, thus letting out the prehistoric creature. This movie does take a while to get to the blood/gore, but it is worth it including an explosive decompression set piece.

Sorry, forgot to include that bit:

There's been a project listed on Wan's IMDb page for a while now that bears the title (or lack thereof) "Untitled James Wan Thriller," aka House of Horror, and the website Desde Hollywood broke the news today that the movie has finally been given a proper name. Currently in post-production, the film will be called Demonic, and you can expect to find the words "James Wan Presents" attached to that title.


and for oink and yankee:

9. Frankenstein's Army (first-time viewing)
Delightful entry into the increasingly popular Nazi-sploitation horror genre. "Frankenstein's Army" pits a ragtag group of WW2 Russian soldiers in soon-to-be occupied Germany, only to find that the Nazis have enlisted a descendant of Victor Frankenstein to create an army of soldiers by retrofitting the bodies of the dead. Sure, this sounds a little like "Universal Soldier", but the resultant army is much more visually inventive and fun. The creations are something of a combination of steampunk-cyborg meets Hellraiser Cenobite, and the fun is in seeing all the different variations of monster that have been made, each equipped with unique built-in mechanizations to inflict bodily mayhem. The creatures (and an excellently unhinged portrayal of Dr. Frankenstein) are the main reason to watch this movie. The movie is weakened by being shot as a "found footage" movie, which is mostly just a dizzying distraction aside from a few effective scenes where it lends a certain "first person haunted house walkthrough" feel. Even with its flaws, you have to admit it's refreshingly gutsy to make a "man in a monster suit" movie in this day and age of CGI and prosthetic makeup effects, and not only does Frankenstein's Army have one man in a monster suit, it has a whole army of them! 3 out of 5 stars.
