How’s it going everyone! Haven’t been on here in a while, but I’m glad to announce that I will be returning and posting more often this summer as I will be on break from school. In addition to me returning, I’m looking to see if any of you fellow bloggers would be interested in being co-authors for the site. You’d be able to post in any category of the site or if you have a new idea for the site, feel free to discuss it with me. Thanks again and I’ll see you all soon.
Today is an extremely sad day. We all found out that the great horror icon himself (Wes Craven) has passed at the age of 76. The man created some of the best horror movies to date, along with 2 highly successful horror franchises that will continue to live on and show his legacy. Not only did Wes Craven help define the horror genre, but he also helped revive it when many horror movies were terrible in the late 90’s (Exception of Scream). Since you’re all following me, I’m pretty sure you’re all aware that Scream is my all time favorite horror movie franchise ever and hearing this news is terrible, but all that’s left to be said is thank you for the scares and for the memories. You will forever be the greatest horror director and will truly be missed!! Time for a marathon!
Plot: After a video of Audrey and Rachel kissing goes viral, high school student Nina and her boyfriend Tyler are brutally murdered which soon rattles Lakewood to a murderer who struck 20 years ago.
Review: It’s been a while since I’ve been on here, but most of you guys know the Scream series just started. All of you must’ve known I would have to come back to review this, I mean how couldn’t I , Scream is my all time favorite horror franchise after all. Let’s get more in depth with this review.
The story is mediocre at best, actually maybe a little better than that. Before I get into what I liked about Scream, there were a few things that I necessarily didn’t quite understand. For starters, the opening scene was kind of confusing and the way that the director had put those things together made it seem like that is the reason for these killings. I’m pretty sure we will get a better understanding of all that in the future, but they could’ve went deeper on that. The one thing I really like about the Scream story is how we’re learning everyones back story including the moms. That alone made me think about who the killer can be the whole episode and I’m glad I got that feel, because it felt like a Scream movie. Still don’t know how I feel about the mask, know they were looking for an original look, but it looks like shit compared to the original. How was the acting, you may ask? Well, it was absolute shit. I can’t even lie to you and say it was decent or one person shined. Like no, lol, they were all terrible. Honestly, don’t get your hopes up, because the acting will make you want to vomit. They were trying to be funny, but said some corny jokes that just made you dislike some of the characters even more. Only bright spot was Bella Thorne and we all know how that went. Although, this might have been good for her, look at where Scream has led Barrymore. Coincidence? I think not!
Did the Scream succeed as a horror show? In this area of Scream I believe the director absolutely delivered. I can’t lie the show did bring the terror, it kept my heart racing the whole time. Scream had a great kill scene, good blood, good build up(especially in the throwback scene), and did a good job in general with keeping the viewer on the edge. Just wish there can be more kills, but that’s not going to happen in Scream the show. This one was awesome though. Final Verdict: Scream had a decent pilot that I do feel is worth a watch. It will be interesting to see how this show progresses. It was nice seeing the character connection to Randy. The show also provided great scares and kills. Although, when it comes down to it, Scream lacked a strong story and had some terrible actors. The show kind of felt like three different things in one. That being Scream mixed with I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Pretty Little Liars. Would’ve been nice if they made it just feel like Scream, but I know it’s hard, which is why I’m giving them the benefit of the doubt. Like Noah said.. “You can’t turn a slasher movie into a TV show.” I agree, but I wish this show the best.
This is just a little unboxing video that I did for the Friday the 13th complete collection box set. Friday the 13th is probably one of the best horror franchises to ever be created and I can watch all the films over and over again. Extremely excited to have this beautiful box set to add to my collection.
Plot: Jigsaw locks a few unlucky people in a booby trapped shelter and they must find a way out before they inhale too much of a lethal nerve gas and die. But they must watch out, for the traps Jigsaw has set in the shelter lead to death also.
Review: Well, since I’m currently up to Saw 6 and have been watching this franchise non stop lately, all of you guys can look forward to a marathon of Saw reviews. Honestly, I feel like Saw 2 might have been a better movie overall than the original. If you guys have been following my page you probably all know I’m not a big fan of slow build ups, but surprisingly it worked for Saw and I really enjoyed it but the second film just delivers in every way and comes out strong right from the beginning. Saw 2 is an excellent horror/thriller that absolutely keeps the viewers on the edge of their seats.
The story for Saw 2 was intriguing. It mainly focuses on a group of people who are trapped inside this booby trapped house and must find their way out before they inhale to much of the poisonous glass. They must play the game by the rules and somehow have something in common with one another, that they must figure out in order to win the game. Saw 2 provides us with some excellent twists that honestly left me speechless. I really couldn’t believe how good they were. All I can tell you guys that haven’t seen this movie is expect the unexpected because these twists will come back and punch you in the face. How was the acting? The acting in Saw 2 was actually highly enjoyable. The best part about the Saw franchise is that most of the cast is not well known, or even known for that matter, but still deliver excellent performances. Tobin Bell, Shawnee Smith, and Donnie Wahlberg are all excellent in the film and really get the viewers engaged with the film. The supporting cast in Saw 2 also did a great job with their roles and gave us great performances. It was a great performance overall from the cast.
Saw 2 had plenty of great scenes when it came to horror/thrills. There may not be too many scenes that make you jump, but the film can still creep you out in other ways. Saw 2 was filled with gory scenes, each containing a great amount of blood. Some of the scenes were honestly a little nasty, but who doesn’t love that. There was also more kills in this movie, which were mostly pretty insane. Saw 2 just had so much gore that can really keep the viewer on the edge of their seats the whole time. Overall I loved the movie Saw 2 and thought it was highly entertaining. The story was intriguing and can really draw the viewers in. The twists in this movie were fantastic, so make sure you pay attention. The acting was great, Tobin Bell, Shawnee Smith, and Donnie Wahlberg are all excellent in the film. Saw 2 did have excellent gore scenes, filled with lots of blood and great kills. If you are squeamish, please stay away from this movie. If not, I absolutely recommend you watch Saw 2. You won’t regret it!
