Of course sometimes the categories are relative, so if you have your own noms, or just disagree with how I classify these battles, make sure to spit bullets below.
But most importantly, have a great trek into the new year. And as always, be safe if you can't be good!
I was going to go with the original HALLOWEEN, of course, for this match up, but the more I thought about it the more I realized that the Strode sibling relationship is much deeper and interesting in H2O than in either of the first two. It feels like both players have a full sense of what's at stake in H2O. And that makes for good times.
"Your mother sucks cocks in hell" spewing out of that innocent little face. Tragic and awesome all at the same time. At this point in the series we've thankfully never heard of Pazuzu, or any of the silly ponderings that Part II brought our way. It's just a little girl in a room possessed by the Devil, hoping a couple of priests can help her. And you know what? They do.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. PG-13 has been used in a reasonable way about three times in the history of Hollywood, and this monster mash is one of them. Pit a bunch of inexperienced kids against the entire Universal catalog, and you've got one nasty fight in the making. The best thing? Even though the kids act like kids, they do not act like idiots.
F*ck me! I got home from work the other night and my wife was watching GREMLINS on AMC. So that makes me feel old. But it also makes me realize that the kitchen scene in the flick is one of the best fun moments in horror history. And it all ends with the famous nuking of a G-man. If you don't love this part of the movie than you and me got nothing, and I mean nothing, to talk about.
Real life happenings aside, the image of those blonde tresses in front of a static-y TV remain some of the most powerful in genre history. And as the movie goes on, we'd certainly care about the fate of all the Freelings, but you have to admit that seeing little Carol Anne get kidnapped is a classic are you f*cking kidding me moment.
