The Strangers - 8/10

Creepy. More of an "old school" suspense thriller. It wasn't perfect by any means, but I really enjoyed it. Plus it kept popping into my head while I was trying to go to sleep, so it got to me.

Sleepaway Camp - 5/10

Everything about this movie is wrong. The acting is terrible, the writing is atrocious, the kills and special effects are bland, the suspense is absolutely nil, and there are so many laughable, completely nonsensical character moves that I lost count halfway in. But somehow it's enjoyable (like watching a car wreck) and wow, what an ending.

Stephen Kings Sleepwalkers 5/10. Had its moments.

The Signal 4/10. Just didn't do anything for me.

Hostel 2

very impressive.Less gore oriented than the first but has more emotions and more brain than the first.

I am hugely impressed with the scene in which the torture candidates enter the factory in slow motion under a Schindler List-esque music and the doors of the chambers finaly close.Awesome job.

I am no admirer of torture movies(I had mentioned in my another thread ) but this film is very strong except maybe the final.

regards,

Timur

I really like this movie alot. Seeing it again on PPV you could see more of the action, the "sea sickness" wasn't there, BUT it is hard to really see the monster so that's why it gets an 8.

But overall, this is a really fun flick!
the wonderful reply of americans to the 'Host' in an american way.

Sorry but, while I don't particularly like either of the films, I think that the first one has much more brain. I mean, everything seemed to try and be forced and just seem smart in the second. The first had an interesting subtlety with the way of the factory. But in the second it's got this crazy design just to "outdo" the original. Thought it was just an attempt to add something that was completely unnecessary. Completely my opinion though.

Cheap and shitty.

Otis - 9/10
From the director of Sublime (I knew the style looked familiar) and just as good, the acting's pretty damn good overall, wacky characters and very funny.

Excellent observation, Timur. I give an 8/10 as well.

I also prefer Hostel 2 over the first one. (Nor am I partial to torture horror.) The first one took itself seriously, but the second one seemed to revel in the absurd premise of the Hostel movies. That made it much more ejoyable for me.

I survived "Manos" Hands of Fate again last night, but only because it was the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version.
The movie: 0.5/10
The MST3K episode: 8/10

Cloverfield- 10/10 Blasted my expectations to shreds.

But could you really consider that a horror film? The monster and the scares were more of a backdrop to what was going on with the characters themselves...or is that what makes it such a good horror film? I'm confused.

Planet Terror- 10/10 Fucking Schock heaven.

That all depends upon what category you put "Monster" movies. Some Monster movies. I personally would put them under the horror category. Although Kaiju fans would probably argue with me on that.

Faust: Love of the Damned, The Dentist and The Dentist 2. So I saw the trailers for these on the Return of the Living Dead 3 DVD, and I'm on a practical effects/rubber monster kick so HAD to get Faust and I've enjoyed Brian Yuzna's bad movie cheese in the past (huge fan of Beyond Re-Animator) so I figured I'd check out the Dentist movies too since they looked fun in the trailers. Anyway...



The Dentist

Not bad. Corbin Bernsen does great with what he has, but it could have used some more one-liners and could have been a little more tense considering the material. Overall, pretty fun though.



The Dentist 2

Not quite as good as the original, but it still had some funny moments and Corbin Bernsen was again really entertaining. It's worth checking out if you enjoyed the first one.



Faust: Love of the Damned

Ugh. I thought this looked hilarious(ly bad) in the trailer and hoped it would repeat the magic insanity of Beyond Re-Animator, but man... what a waste of Jeffrey Combs and foam latex. It's pretty much a rehash of The Crow. Or Spawn. Or The Crow meets Spawn... I can't decide. Thank God it had a lot of female nudity to keep me watching, but I really didn't need to see Combs' naked, mud-covered ass.

I watched Strange Circus a couple of days ago. I knew it was by the same directors Suicide Club, so I had a pretty good idea of what I was getting into. While Suicide Club revealed it's genius in the second half, I agree that Strange Circus got too convoluted for its own good in its second half. It's a hard movie to watch, at least for me, and definitely not for everyone. 7/10

Otis 9/10

Thanks to Cronos, I checked this one out and it's a terrific satire, very funny. I'd forgotten he had mentioned the guys from Sublime made this one until I saw the cameo glimpse of Mandingo! I wonder if he's going to be a kind of trade-mark for these guys in future films.

Cool, glad I could help

The Convent - 8/10
Low budget with uneven acting and a repetitive soundtrack but it's short, gory and a lot of fun. Demonic glow in the dark nuns rock!

A Brush With Dead - 2/10
Cheap badly made garbage.

Cherry Falls

Oh....dear god what did i just watch. What a fucking stupid movie. I know its meant to be tounge and cheek and a black comedy but this is so poorly made and filmed which had a lot to do with cuts obviously. Even without the cuts id be suprised if it improved the quality. Bad acting, ABYSMAL killer and an all round messy and choppy attempt at a horror movie.

The one thing i never got was the music in some sequences, they sounded like a low budget action movie. Another thing i dont get is that i was oddly entertained by this and i almost liked the first half of the movie but even i couldnt turn off my brain and enjoy this one. Although it gets points for an original synopsis with virgins being killed, too bad the movie sucked.

4/10

Its free on Fearnet.

Its not bad in a midgrade horror/comedy way. Kind of like Return of the Living Dead 2 or Night of the Creeps if you would take out the coolness of Tom Atkins.

Dark Floors - 8/10
I'm going to leave it with an 8 but I'm kinda inclined to go for a 7, aside from being able to use their name to sell it I don't see the point of having the Lordi group being the monsters, seemed kinda dumb. But it's nicely filmed, the acting isn't that bad and it's an easy watch.

Demonoid: Messenger Of Death - 5/10
Demonic dismembered killer hand film. Some surprisingly good effects, the bad acting drags it down though which is a shame.

Dawn of the Dead 2004

9/10 One of best remakes around. Enough differences to be it's own while paying a great tribute to the original...and it's freakin' scary! Someone borrowed our DVD and we forgot who, so I bought a new one. Also love the extras..especially Andy's last days.




C.H.U.D.

8/10 Why so high you may ask? Because it's one of my 80's cheese guilty pleasures. I really enjoy this flick and finally swiched over to DVD.

Otis (2008) - 6.5/10 - Dug the concept (a parody of torture porn), but the execution was a bit off. Still, it's one of those movies that you have to see at least once.

The Strangers (2008) - 9/10 - Best horror movie I've seen all year. No question.

Re watches of:

Freddy vs Jason

I actually dont like the first half of the movie, it just seemed really bland but the last 45 minutes or so are great. The last battle is one of the greatest battles in movie history in my opinion. Its so brutal. I LOVED the Kelly Rowland scene near the end where she pokes fun at Freddy, that scene ended well for all of us though

7/10

These dont count but hey lol:

Jumper 6/10, quite poor.
Enchanted 7.5/10

The Burning - 6/10

Very fun cheesefest. Ive been waiting to see this one for almost 5 years now, and I wasnt disappointed; totally thought I would be. Killer wasnt very neat though, but the movie was so fun and quite thick on the blood that I didnt even care.

THEM - 7/10

Slow build, in my opinion very overhyped. It was none-the-less a very well made creep-out movie. It was very subtle and that made it even eerier. I didnt really see that ending coming either, which I probably should have. I loved the look of the flick too, first thing I noticed and a good chunk of the reason why I liked it so much.

The Hitcher (1986)
Watched this a few days ago. Definitely enjoyed it thanks to Rutger Hauer's excellent performance. It managed to take a simple idea and keep it fresh and interesting for the runtime. Good stuff.



The Hitcher (2007)
Well, since I enjoyed the original, I figured I'd watch the remake too... bad idea. Now, I'm not one of those people that instantly hate remakes (I'm actually quite fond of a few, including Platinum Dunes' Texas Chainsaw movies), but I HATED this one. Sure, most of the iconic scenes were there, but they were so rushed over there wasn't any time to build tension and suspense, not to mention the only scares came from cheap "LOAD NOISES!" style jumps.

I do try to judge remakes on their own, but I can't help comparing Rutger Hauer's and Sean Bean's performances, since John Ryder is what makes The Hitcher. Bean's version is lacking all the complexity that Hauer had, and his John Ryder comes off as more of a guy that's just a general dickhead, and not someone completely insane like he should be.

And my god, who chose the licensed music for this disaster? The movie switched into pop music video gear way too frequently and none of the music fit at all. As much as I like NIN, having Closer in there during the car shootout was just an awful, awful idea.

Well, at least Sophia Bush is easy on the eyes.

Nezulla the Rat Monster

Not a big fan of Japanese monster movies, I do know what it takes to make a good one. And this movie is definitely not good - the story comes out to be a complete bore and there is nothing special about the monster except it doesn't own the size of those you've seen in Ultramen. 4/10.
