October 23rd:

33. Hellraiser II: Hellbound - 4 skinless musclesuit zombies
For me Hellraiser II and Hellraiser 4: Bloodline are the only ones you need to see to get the story. Hellraiser 2 does a nice brief recap of Helraiser but quickly dives deeper into Pinheads origins and the labyrinth of hell. Some creative set designs that I felt captured the idea well and while the film is aging somewhat poorly the concept and story is still really unparalleled. There has been nothing that expresses such dark imagination with such a unique concept. 4 skinless muslesuit zombies

If you have the time you should watch the first Hellraiser if nothing else it's really introduces you to Barker's world. Then watch two, Two is good on it's own but watched with one the experience is enhanced. 4 assorted centobites for the whole works.

The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue

First time watching, I surprised myself by not having found this earlier, and it's not a bad zombie movie. Old school (1974) Italian zombie film with British actors and with an actual story and reason why/how the zombies came to be zombies. 2.75/5.

42. The Conjuring. Drops the melonfarming mic, exhales a drag from a Kool, drops his head, and walks off stage. Not even a douche slow clap emerges. Barely the rustle of clothing among the audience is heard. FTV 5 Stars



This movie is:

A one turn kill.
Boom headshot.
Other movies radioing back to base for backup.
Mia Wallace saying "I said goddamn, goddamn."

Definitely a good one. Kind of like a giallo/zombie mashup.

I shouldn't be a hypocrite because I did a sound check yesterday to see how good the LFE is and it is definitely there! Right now I am trying to lasso my mom and wife to watching it saturday night. The weather is perfect now for these kinds of movies!

I bought V/H/S on DVD. It never seemed right playing that movie from a spinning disc. Now I'm going to get V/H/S2 streamed over the internet. That seems way more wrong. Maybe I'll dig out my VCR and plug the Roku into the line input and watch it that way.

Don't sweat it. Wife and kid went to sleep at 7:30 so I had a perfect block to turn off the lights and crank the sound a little. I'll let her watch it Friday night. She's gonna freak the hell out.

LOL. VIDEODROME.

29- Videodrome - 1983 FTV. Another one of those movies I have seen bits and pieces over the years but never really sat down for. Had no clue when it was made, so was funny trying to guess the year and then checking it after it was over. I was wrong.

I can see how this could have influenced later filmmakers in horror with its fixation on personal injury/torture and recording it on video or watching it via recording – almost like a found footage torture porn thing. Not a fan of found footage or extended torture when the victim is helpless. Wounds during conflict is fun, too much helpless torture is frustrating for me as a viewer and I just want to get to the payback. Anywho, could see some early influences here, and was funny to hear them talk about what format of tape they wanted. LOL. BETA FTW! Not. Was all VHS here. tongue.gif
FX and gore was pretty tame, and bad, and was the worst culprit that dated this movie.

This movie has-
A lot of James Woods
James Woods refusing S&M with Debra Harry
James Woods engaging in S&M with an old lady
James Woods engaging in S&M with his TV set
James Woods wearing different coats
James Woods having the iconic vagina in his belly

Yes. Not bad. Children being murdered or murdering others is always creepy.

Pretty sure I saw somewhere that you can actually buy it on VHS.....


Last night's flick.......

24. Halloween III (1982)- {1.75/5} AMC My initial impression when viewing the first half of the movie on the previous night, was that it was an extremely corny effort to incorporate “technology” into the horror genre while at the same time horribly watering down the Halloween franchise altogether. Although I still stand by those thoughts for the most part, I feel like this film was actually slightly entertaining when it was all said and done. Judged on its own merits without taking into consideration the fact that it has absolutely nothing to do with the first two Halloween offerings, it was an original idea that had a few noteworthy moments and a solid performance by Dan O’Herlihy as the evil mastermind behind all the mayhem. I also felt that it played out more like a sci-fi flick but I suppose there were enough “scares” and kills to qualify it as horror. In the end, this was still a very cheestastic movie but I have to admit that I ended up not hating it nearly as much as anticipated. The ending was actually pretty good despite the ridiculous setup to it.

Amazon has the second one on tape but it's bundled with the Blu-ray and DVD. V/H/S/2 [DVD+Blu-ray+VHS Tape]

I just got an e-mail from Netflix telling me they added a movie I might like, V/H/S 2. The e-mail came in while watching it.

Gotta get this chit off my phone and posted in internet land before I lose it.

The Devil Doll (1936)
Stingy Mr.Potter cross dressing and chewing the scenery for over an hour! Cool sfx for 1936. B-

Freaks
(1932)
No arms? No legs? No height? No problem. REVENGE! Always gooble gobbly good. A

The Body Shop aka Doctor Gore
(1973)
When hi tech medical procedures are performed using aluminum foil and duct tape you know it’s gonna be a treat. The crazy hunchback assistant (Zach Galifinakis?) stole the show. Fine 70’s women too. Good trash. B

Eden Lake
(2008)
FASSBENDER! This revenge tale runs into a few of those “what are the chances?” situations but the performances and direction made this very enjoyable. It also helped that I hate 99.8% of young teens. Glad I finally checked this out. B+

Hell of the Living Dead
(1980)
Basically just a ripoff of Fulci’s Zombi and Dawn of the Dead with bad dubbing and gibroni version of Fabio Frizzi’s fantastic score. It does have an eyeball gag at the end though (bonus point awarded). C

Prey
(2010)
So the French super cutie from The Artist is in this? Yay! Excitement ensues. She’s in it for maybe ten minutes. *sad trombone* Man vs. Nature vs. Man. These pigs are like great white sharks on land! Dafuq? Not bad, not great. C

That's an interesting three pack I will need to check out.

Look for Zach Galifinakis frontal nudity in the post credits video.

Man what a day. Had two firsts this month today. Boinked my first movie (since starting in 2008) thanks to Victor Salva. Put on Clownhouse for a FTV and had to turn it off after all the young boys in underwear and bare ass action. I still love Jeepers Creepers but that guy can go f&*k himself. Stopped that POS and put on The Last House on the Left (2009) for another FTV. Whoa! First "A" of the month. You guys were right. cool.gif

Where did you even get Clownhouse? Netflix doesn't carry it. It is so infamous for the director being found a pedo after the fact, I didn't think any distributor would touch that one.

My buddy picked up a bunch of stuff @ Monstermania and this was in the pile. I can step back and view it as art but this was a little too weird especially now after reading about the whole ordeal. It's amazing that the guy got work again.

24. The Shining (1980)
Isolated hotel caretaker loses his marbles while his psychic son dodges the ghosties. I saw this in a full-sized theater screen with a packed audience last night and it was an incredible experience. Not only one of my all-time favorite horror movies, but one of my favorite movies of all time, period, "The Shining" still carries a resonance that has kept people puzzling over and talking about this movie for over 30 years. There's the awesome and epic scale of the setting, never has isolation been so palpable through a movie screen. There's Kubrick's steadicam floating effortlessly down hallways and through the hedge maze. There's the amazing musical soundtrack, and live recorded sounds such as Danny's big wheel trike as it goes over rugs and hardwood floors. There's Jack Nicholson's incredibly over-the-top performance, skewering the facade of the wholesome family unit. And of course there's those creepy girls standing in the hotel hallways! 5 out of 5 stars.
