The Eye Remake

Wow, a remake that tried! I thought this was a very good movie, not by remake standards but by general standards. I was hooked into Jessica Alba's surprisingly good performance and the scares worked for me.

7/10

Prom Night (2008)

Hmmmm, im not sure how i really feel about this. I mean it was bad but i dont think it was as bad as it was made out to be. The first half of the movie was actually pretty decent and the characters were quite likeable but it all went down the shitter during the last 30 minutes or so. I mean i know its a movie but let there be SOME realism here. The constant "ill be right back" or "oh i forgot something wait here" got old quickly. The acting was good and Lisa's chase scene was good also but thats it really.

5/10

The Orphanage - 8/10

Nowhere near as scary as a lot of reviews made out. But it still had a creepy, atmospheric del Toro feel to it, and the ending was great.

This movie tried nothing but my patience.

I watched Peter Weir's The Plumber last night, and while its not completely horror, it is still an incredibly weird, watchable suspense/black comedy.

Guyver: Dark Hero

I saw the 1st picture as a blasphemy of the original manga dating back many years before these 2 movies' turnup. And though Dark Hero improved a lot in couple of aspects, I didn't quite buy it being a die-hard fan of Yoshiki Takaya's hot manga. Sure more Zoanoids were thrown in there which was sweet, but that alone wouldn't deflect all the flaws. Mainly because they failed to strike the right tone of the book and made it into 2 cheesy B movies. In my mind a Guyver movie should've been a sci-fi blockbuster, a perfect blend of manga action and extreme violence, all done with top-ranking fx. I hope they are not planning on another sequel right now, maybe itís better to leave a little to the imagination 5/10.

Aliens: Director's Cut

Basically the film that rewrote the rules of sci-fi action and established a bar in pacing and violence that has rarely been topped, James Cameron's sequel to Ridley Scott's seminal classic is the rare example of the follow-up that actually manages to top the original all the way around. Sigourney Weaver returns as Ripley striking the perfect balance between being badass and feminine that many of today's female action heroines could take notes from. The fact that she got a Best Actress Oscar Nomination here is even more astonshing considering the circumstances. But in addition, Cameron surrounds her with the best ensemble the series has ever seen, and leagues ahead of the boring cardboard cutouts of the original, with tremendous character development and empathy for their fates: Michael Biehn's Hicks is a man of few words at first glance, but infinite coolness (gotta love the way he dozes off during the drop), and once he takes command the movie really goes on all cylinders; Reiser's Burke is a conniving slimeball obviously, but it's the human side of his character that makes him fascinating to watch (unlike Ian Holm's Ash in the original); Henriksen became a major player as Bishop, almost touching in the way he wishes to be accepted by the others; Paxton's legendary Hudson, the ultimate insecure macho male id, has the best lines and the funniest moments; Jenette Goldstein's Vazquez is both beautiful and deadly and the way she gives the battle everything she's got up until the end is a marvel to see; Carrie Henn's Newt manages to be endearing without being cloying or annoying, no mean feat for a child actress, and the rest of the lineup all do their jobs to a tee, right down to the guys with only one or two lines. What rocked people's worlds back when this came out in 86 and still does today, is the hectic, unremitting pace, especially after the first hour. The fact that the film is over 2 and a half hours and yet keeps you glued to the edge of your seat the whole time is something that very few movies since (save maybe Armageddon) have been able to achieve. In addition, the model miniature FX used at the time still hold up today, and why true craftsmanship like that has been eschewed in favor of modern day CGI is beyond me. In the end, one of the greatest movies of the 80s easily, and also one of the best in its genre ever...

10/10

Timber Falls

I was very surprised. I expected it to be poorly acted and poorly made judging from what i'd heard but i was satisfied with this. Very well acted which is one of the movies positives, the two leads are likeable enough to gain interest and sympathy. The villains are also great here with Beth Broderick being the stand oout villain. It was wierd seeing her like this after the years of watching her in Sabrina!

The gore was very good also. However there are some truly ridiculous moments and silly character moves. The ending is atrocious also but i think the movie has a lot more good parts than bad so it gets a thumbs up from me.

7/10

Videodrome

This was one weird movie. Overall, I really liked it because I miss those old movies that used make up and animatronics as its special effects not just CG as so many horror movies do now-a-days.

Really fun over the top horror movie. No CG at all and the kills were awesome and some of the best I've ever seen. Fun fun movie even thought there are some down times the over the top gore just keeps it going.

Alexandre Aja is the MAN! A movie that really delivers the "edge of your seat" feeling that most genre films lack these days.

The Strangers

Wow, i was quite blown away when this one ended.

Went to see it on opening day here in the U.K and it was a great experience. When one of the strangers first appear, i wont give anything away such as when it happens but the whole theater gasped. People were screaming and laughing after it, it was a odd mixture of fun and fear. There were some genuinley terrifying moments and i havent seen a movie of this intensity in a long time. A movie that doesnt rely on gore or a compelling storyline. This was simple, had likeable characters, great performances and great villains. Ive heard mixed things about the end but i did not see it coming and it was quite disturbing to watch. Highly reccomended.

9/10

So I picked up this 6 movie set and watched the first flick today.

The Blame

It was decent in a short-story kind of way. It didn't clear up all the plot points and the end was fairly sudden, but it was well performed and had that slow, creepy mood I've come to expect (and enjoy) from Spanish horror movies.

5/10 (5 is average on my scale, so it's neither bad nor good).

No English dubs for the first two movies, and going by the packaging I doubt there are any for the remaining 4.

The release is fairly bare bones, but I guess you can't expect more with the low price for 6 films.

The Last House on the Left

just watched it for the first time. The story was pretty good, liked the revenge at the end, thought the characters/actors were good, hated the cops though. I had no serious problem with the music, i was on the imdb page for it and there were a lot of complaints about the music.
Good but i think its a lil' overrated from what i was hearing about it anyway.

6 Films to Keep You Awake - Spectre

So this one was another slow, creepy style flick that focused more on suspense than LOUD NOISES scares (though there were a few of those as well) told between two time periods in the main character's life. I really enjoyed it, but it does depend a lot on the viewer's patience as it likes to tease you by leaving little cliffhangers every time it jumps between the time periods.

Overall, it's probably not a movie I'll re-watch, but it definitely held my attention for it's runtime.

7/10 (5 being average on my scale)

Forgot to post earlier in the month:

Dracula (Tod Browning, 1931)

7/10

Just watched:

Bram Stoker's Dracula (Francis Ford Coppola, 1992)



Woo hoo. A little too sensual, dark and twisted for my taste but I enjoyed it as it was better than I was expecting. The visuals were awesome, as was Gary Oldman (the reason I watched the film).

7/10

The Devils Rejects (Rob Zombie, 2005)



It was engaging n everything but there were alot of 'horror moments' (as in the stuff where you scream 'That would not happen!' at the TV) that were very annoying and offputting. Also, the references to other movies were a bit too obvious and frequent but still the ending was really effective and the acting was decent.

6/10
