This last week I've seen a few... Here they are...

DEVIL IN THE FLESH 2:

I guess I'll count this as a horror all though it's more of a thriller... Anyway, I watched it three times, once Thursday night and twice Friday. I really enjoyed the first one with ROSE McGOWAN and I loved this one too. It was very predictable and a typical erotic thriller, but it was actually fun. I had a great time watching it and MAN is Jodi Lyn O'keefe HOT... This movie rocked... I plan on eventually buying it. Sure, some parts were kind of corney, but it was still A LOT of fun... I hope they make a DEVIL IN THE FLESH 3!!!

Grade: 9/10

WITCHCRAFT 11-SISTERS IN BLOOD :

I rented this with a friend of mine and we basically rented it to make fun of it and we knew it would be BAD but we didn't think it would be as BAD as it was... What a horrible movie. We did get some laughs though. The acting was the worst I have EVER seen and it's a wonder how this movie was EVER made...
It was fun making fun of the acting and it was funny how almost every scene had the characters having sex, they couldn't even act like they were having sex good... This movie doesn't really have a plot at all, SCARY MOVIE had more of a plot... It was pretty much just an excuse to get people naked. I figured that's what it would be but this was just "too bad" to be enjoyable... I can't believe I found this in the horror section, it should have been in the porno section... The so called effects were horrible, in fact there was one in particular that got me laughing quite a bit... I still can't believe how bad the acting was, I mean, these people make the people on Sesame Street look like they should be Oscar contenders... I wouldn't recommend this movie to someone who wanted a bad movie, it's just too bad. I don't even think I'd recommend this to my worst enemy, nobody deserves this kind of punishment. Don't even rent it if you're looking for something to turn you on, it's to bad to get you excited. Skip this movie at all costs, it's not worth wasting an hour and a half of your life for. I'd rather be doing nothing and bored out of my mind than see this again... Don't say I didn't warn you...

Grade: 0/10

The Stepfather:

There was nothing GREAT about this movie, but it wasn't that bad either... It kept me a little entertained for the most part... I'm sure most people have already seen it and if you haven't I don't know wether to recommend it to you or not... I'd definately recommend it over WITCHCRAFT 11...

Grade: 3.5/10

Slaughter High:

If you rent it with a group of people to make fun of, you might have a good time. If you rent it as a horror movie and expect to be scared, you'll be VERY disapointed... I watched it with some friends and it offered some pretty good laughs, we made fun of it the whole time... Man were the deaths ever horrible, they were so fake and corney, they were quite laughable... The best death was when the two people were having sex and they got electrocuted, it was pretty funny...

Grade:

As a movie to make fun of with a group of friends- 3.5/10

As a horror movie- 0/10

PUMPKINHEAD:

It was alright, I was actually sad when the cute little boy got killed. He kind of looked like the little kid from Jerry Maguire, but a little bigger... Anyway, after awhile my friends and I stopped paying attention. I know if I watched it by myself I probably would have liked it, but whenever I watch a movie with friends it's hard to enjoy it because you have to make fun of everything...
I didn't even know how it ended but one of my friends said it ended with *****SPOILERS, SPOILERS,SPOILERS,SPOILERS,SPOILERS,SPOILERS****** ****************************************
Lance Henricksons character shooting himself so Pumpkinhead would die... In a way I wouldn't mind checking it out again, I think I probably would have liked it watching it by myself but my grade will be based on when I watched it with my friends...

GRADE: 4/10

Well, that's all the horror movies I've seen in the past week, what has everyone else seen recently ???

I also watched the CROW 3: SALVATION with one of my friends but I had already seen it before... Anyway, it was a good movie and it came close to being as good as the first one...

GRADE: 9 or 9.5/10

RE-ANIMATOR
This was a fun movie. Nothing special about it, but it was defintely not bad. The acting was good, it was pretty sick, and it even had some funny parts. I enjoyed it.
7.5/10

I'm in the middle of watching Argento's SUSPIRIA, and after that I'll watch CANDYMAN. I'm planning on renting the first two TCM movies (I've already seen the first one, but I wanna see it again) as well as PROM NIGHT and something else they had at the video store...I don't remember what it was.

Just picked up a copy of "Dead Alive" on DVD on a friend's recommendation - looking forward to seeing it this weekend.

SUSPIRIA
This was an interesting movie. It did feel a bit dated, but the acting was superb, the suspense was very present throughout much of the movie, and the use of colors was brilliant. It was overall a great movie, but I just wish it could have been better quality picture and sound.
8/10

CANDYMAN
I loved this movie. Much better than most 90s horror movies. The Candyman is scarier than Jason or Pinhead will ever be. Virginia Madsen was great in the leading role, and the Candyman scared the shit out of me. I really felt for the characters in this movie.
9.5/10

Here's what I watched lately :

1.LONE WOLF : Amusing low-budget movie about an awful rock band and their friends encountering a werwolf. The actors, who are supposed to be teens looked like about 40 years of age and there was a lot of completely ridicolous gore. Still, I found it dumb, harmless fun.

2.MANHATTAN BABY : One of the worst Fulci movies I've seen. It concerns a man who walks in a pyramid and gets blinded ( don't ask me how, or why ). Then the action swifts over to Manhatten where almost nothing at all happens, but in the end, someone get's his eyes hacked by a bunch of birds. I was half asleep through most of the movie, so maybe I missed something, but overall a pretty boring, dull movie.

3.LEATHERFACE : TCW III. Half as bad as I expected. Per Random I ran about an uncut version ( pretty rare around here ) in a Video-Store that I've never encountered before. It wasn't really that bad, with a few cool scenes ( Leatherface on a learn-computer, hiliarious! ) but I liked part 2 and 1 better.

4.ARMY OF IMMORTALS: Completely awful finnish film about a bunch of zombies who go to town and dance in bars. As they don't return their family summons some zombie folks from wayback and they go to town too. Should have rented "Evil Dead" again.

I totally agree with Freddy about Candyman which was really impressive with the gothic music and the places were really scary.
Tony Todd is an outstanding actor and his character of Candyman is really believable.
This was maybe the most scary film I have ever seen in my whole life ( well I am 24 )

CANDYMAN is a modern-day classic. One of the best horror films of the 90's. Tony Todd as the title specter possesses more charisma than most horror movie villains combined!

I watched BLADE again recently, and I have to admit, for a recent horror film (most are derivative of "something else"), it packs a wallop! Perhaps THE BEST vampire movie ever! An excellent variation of the "vampire journey". Great FX! Wesley Snipes rules!

DAWN OF THE DEAD: Exciting, scary, gross, and at times funny. The mall was the perfect setting, and the acting was great. Loved the music as well. I definitely liked it waaaay more than Night Of The Living Dead. One of the best, if not the best, zombie movie I've seen.
9/10

ARMY OF DARKNESS: I liked some of it. I don't mind that Sam Raimi went completely away from horror and did a mostly comedy movie, but some of it was a little overboard...I LOVED Evil Dead 2, I thought it was the best of the series: a perfect blend of humor and horror. Army of Darkness was much more on the humor side. Some of it was laugh out loud funny ass shit, but I just wish there could have been more horror.
6.5/10

I thought BLADE was ok, but I'd have to say my favorite vampire movie of all time so far is THE LOST BOYS, I love that movie, and I haven't seen a better vampire movie yet, none have even come close... Maybe THE FORSAKEN will change that, I'm really excited for that movie, it's gonna be awesome... It might become my new favorite...

I watched Carl Dreyer's 1931 "Vampyr" again. For my money, that's got to be the best vampire flick ever made. Great atmosphere and some of the most original and unparallelled visuals I've ever seen. Not scary by today's standards, but stranger and more nightmarish than most horror movies dream of being. (10/10)

I also just saw Alex de la Igleia's "Day of the Beast." Not so much a horror movie as a very dark, morbid comedy about a Catholic priest who believes he's discovered the date that the antichrist will be born. To save the world be "becomes a sinner" and tries to sell his soul to the devil so that he may be present for the birth and destroy the child. This movie has so many twists and turns it totally kept me on my toes, and while it's more dark comedy than horror, like I said, there is an moment about midpoint that comes out of nowhere, and is one of the most unexpected and unnerving scenes in any movie I've seen. The dubbing is not bad, but you sometimes get the impression that it's missing some of the nuances of the dialogue. The acting makes up for that, and the story will drag you along, kicking and screaming. One of most original movies I've seen in awhile. (8.5/10)

ANTONIO is right.

WESLEY SNIPES RULES. BEST HOLLYWOOD ACTOR.

I saw THE NIGHT FLIER this last saturday night:

The movie was ok, but if I had to choose between thumbs up or thumbs down it would be thumbs down. It wasn't too bad for a straight to video horror movie, but it had no scares and barely any suspense and that's just not cool. I did like the ending though and the part with the dog on the roof was pretty neat. Anyway, for the most part the movie wasn't all that great and I was disappointed after hearing that it was good.

Grade: 5/10

By the way, I definately want to change my grade for THE CROW: SALVATION, I'll go with a 7/10 instead...

I bought halloween a few days ago, it was really good and scary, I watch it all the time now, it wasn't what I expected though, I'd give it a 9.5/10

I watched VALENTINE twice today. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It was very stylish and nice to look at. Plus it had a cool ending. I'm so sick of these movies where the killer goes on and on about why they killed everyone, it's gotten old really fast. And Valentine is pretty much the first out of the teen slasher flicks to actually not do that... I've got to give it credit for that...

Grade: B+
