Entering the world of roller derby we meet our heroine Cherry Skye (Amber Sajben) the star player of the local league. After winning the derby/match she is celebrating with her team and new love interest Brad (Jake Brown) while the team they beat happens to have the ex-girlfriend of Brad, Hell Grazer (Rachael Blackwood) who is also you classic bully figure. I hear people saying this just sounds like a chick-flick with an unusual sport, well we will get to the horror now.
After a couple get killed by a mysterious skater our heroine gets a visit from the also mysterious Janitor (Max Marchione) who shows her an even on the derby track which included the murder and vanishing of four skaters. Twenty years later the skater in questions Momma Stake (Be-On The-Rocks) has come back to continue a murderous rampage she went on. The victims this time are the skaters on both teams and along with her weapon of choice she leaves plenty of bodies behind her. Cherry must figure out a way to stop her before she takes her soul.
This was made on a budget of 6000 Australian Dollars (which is just over $5000 American) it has an interesting story that a lot of big budget film can’t seem to get right with all their remakes/reboots or sequels. This is fun, a little bit mad but most of all original, this is so important for a low budget horror film.
We do have a lot of cheesy lines that come off really well, loads of blood splatter and some great kills. All this shows you don’t need big budget to make good quality horror, with good kills, solid effects. This is an enjoyable horror.
My Rating 7.5/10
Plot : Setrakian leads Eph, Fet and Nora in the hunt for the Master’s lair; Zack risks his safety.
Review : This episode was absolutely amazing. The group finally meets the master and we find out that Kelly will be used in trying to kill our beloved vampire hunters. This episode will definitely keep you entertained.
The story line was great in this episode. The group goes into the subway tunnels trying to find the master so they can end this epidemic, that’s basically the whole story for this episode. Don’t get me wrong it was enough of a story too keep the viewer entertained and shows that Eph may be the weak link of this group. The other part of the story focuses on Zach, the group left him alone with Nora’s mom and told him to keep an eye on her.That’s the part that got me a little angry, why would they leave a child alone with a woman that needs extra care because of the mental state she’s in. This leads to Zach risking his own life just to get the lady a box of cigarettes, but he stumbles upon Gus. Finally, Gus arrives home and sees that his family are now vampires, he kills his brother and runs out. This is when he bumps into Zach, hopefully he joins our vampire hunting crew.
The episode delivered when it came to the scares, but yet again it always does. This show is just completely creepy and offers us great kills and so much blood and gore. I absolutely guarantee you that this episode will scare you. I loved seeing the hive of the vampires, it was completely awesome. The thrills are always high and it made this episode a great one. The master is seriously bad ass, he needs to be in the show more. Overall this was a great episode and thought it was highly entertaining. The story was great, we see more of Gus, Zach, and the vampires. The show always delivers when it comes to the scares and this episode was just really creepy. I don’t know what it was that made it so creepy, but it was. This episode will make you not want to turn away from the television. If you haven’t seen this episode yet I highly recommend you watch it! Can’t wait for the episode later today!

Plot : Thomas is deposited in a community of boys after his memory is erased, soon learning they’re all trapped in a maze that will require him to join forces with fellow “runners” for a shot at escape.
Review : I know that this movie isn’t necessarily a horror film, but I saw it today and just had to review it. This movie was absolutely amazing, like seriously everything about this film was perfect. It was highly enjoyable and will absolutely keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time.
The story was great, basically a group of kids must fight their way through a maze in order to get out alive. Only problem is there’s some big creatures they must face and some trust issues they must overcome, but the main problem is they don’t have any memory of their pasts. It was interesting too see Thomas having dreams of his past and finding clues which eventually makes him remember who he was. The mystery and thrills in this story were incredible. How was the acting? The acting performance was absolutely amazing, I will tell you this, the movie was filled with a group of highly talented young actors and they all had amazing performances. Dylan O’Brien is so talented, I can’t even describe too you how great of an actor he is. I’m a big Teen Wolf fan and he just completely dominated this role and was a fantastic lead, he has a bright future ahead of him. The supporting cast of Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Will Poulter, and others also did great.
The movie wasn’t completely terrifying because it wasn’t necessarily a horror film. Although, the movie can make you jump, there are a few scenes that can make you jump and have you creeped out. There were a few kills in the film and some intense kill scenes. Since the movie wasn’t horror it mainly thrived from the thrills and mystery that was involved in the movie and they both helped the film be a great success. Run Dylan!Overall I absolutely loved this movie and thought it was highly enjoyable. The story was great, kind of felt like I was watching The Hunger Games, it had that type of vibe to it. A group of kids that are stranded and forced to fight there way out, except in this movie the humans try to stick together. The acting was fantastic, Dylan O’Brien absolutely owned this role and did a great job as the lead.The movie wasn’t completely terrifying because it wasn’t necessarily a horror film, but it can still scare you. The kills were insane and I loved the thriller/mystery vibe of this film, it was amazing. If you haven’t seen this movie yet I highly recommend you go watch it. You won’t regret it, this film is a must watch!
When a couple of campers’ trip gets interrupted by a meteorite strike, they go to investigate. Inside the meteorite has an alien creature inside that makes the campers its first meal on Earth. With the creatures moving into a small local town they take up a home in a basement. The creatures continue to spread through the local area and interrupt a coffee day which is actually very funny.
In the basement the creatures make a meal out of a couple while the rest of the family believe they have gone out early. While the family happens have one young horror fan who enjoys nothing more than to dress up and scare the shit out of the family. Add in four teenagers who find a dead creature and want to know more about it by dissecting it. The teenagers find out the house is starting to get over run by the creatures and have to fight to survive while the young boy Chris figures out a way to control them. How many will survive the horror?
Reaction: with a budget of $25,000 this really was a good example of how you can make a horror film with little to no money unlike certain horrors we have now. The story isn’t difficult to follow think ‘Slither’ with a much smaller budget and you know what you are going to get here.
We do get some interesting creature designs and some very well made special effects for the production costs. We do have very shocking death scenes including someone having their head bitten off. We have the pre-teen who is similar to Corey Feldman’s roles in Friday the 13th Part 3 and Gremlins as someone who actually does have an idea what is going on and makes things happen.
In the end this is very trashy film that could easily be enjoyed by many different horror fans, it has dated but works well to fit into the style it creates. It won’t come up on anyone favourite list but once you have seen it you may bring it up in a conversation when you see other films which use similar ideas.
My Rating 6/10
Plot : Eph learns that Kelly is missing and starts to investigate her disappearance; Dutch reveals her role in Palmer’s plan and she tries to come up with a solution to retaliate against him.
Review : I know I’m extremely late on The Strain reviews, I’ve just been a little busy with school and when I was able to blog , I wanted to review films. Both of these episodes were great and start to show us something that might affect the future of this show and it was really interesting too see.The story for both of these episodes were great and they are kind of both really similar to one another, which will make it easier to combine both of these reviews. A lot of stuff went down in this episode, for starters let’s get to Kelly. Eph starts to look for her and Zach eventually finds her cellphone by tracking and Eph goes to check it out, but all he finds is a phone. The homeless person shows him where she found it and then the story goes to a flashback of Kelly to show us what happened to her and well, she’s a vampire.. sigh. The master decides to meet with her right away, so we can already suspect that Kelly will be used in some way to bring our vampire hunters to an end. Meanwhile Dutch reveals to Setrakian that she was involved in bringing the internet down and comes up with a plan to retaliate against Palmer, by going into his building for WiFi and trying to get the connection back. Their plan fails, but surprisingly Palmer’s most trusted servant denies his orders to kill these people and lets them go, hoping that they will somehow be able to stop this madness. You’re the MVP Mr. Fitzwilliams!
The episode delivered when it came to the scares, but yet again it always does. This show is just completely creepy and offers us great kills and so much blood and gore. I absolutely guarantee you that this episode will scare you. I loved seeing a little more of the vampires and since Kelly is one we got to see the master call her to meet, it was interesting. We also see how they see other vampires and how they see humans, it was great. Overall I loved both of these episodes and thought that they were both entertaining. The story was great and can keep you highly entertained. Eph spends most of his time in these episode looking for Kelly, poor Nora, they just had a magical night and the next day Eph is running around like a madman looking for his ex, but we can understand why Eph is doing this, common people that’s the mother of his child. Kelly winds up turning into a vampire and meets with the master, it will be interesting to see how she is used in the future. Dutch also leaves the group because everyone besides Fet and Setrakian are being completely rude to her, hopefully she remains fine. The episode delivered when it came to the scares, but yet again it always does.The kills were crazy, and it was interesting to learn more about the vampires and how they see us compared to others of their kind. If you haven’t seen this episode I highly recommend you go watch it. You wont regret it! Also next weeks episode looks fantastic, I can’t wait!
Rate: Ep.9 – 8.5/10
Ep. 10 – 9/10
Plot : Several people start receiving voice-mails from their future selves – messages which include the date, time, and some of the details of their deaths.
Review : This movie actually wasn’t that bad, I was actually into it and was eager to see how it would end. The film got a 3.9 on IMDb and everyone that reviewed it basically trashed the film, which I think is ridiculous because the movie wasn’t that bad. The story did a good job with combining suspense and horror.
The story was pretty good, not great, but it was enough to keep you from being bored. I thought that it was unique and well crafted. This was a different type or story then the other supernatural horror films we see, which can probably be why some people didn’t like it. Personally, I thought it was entertaining.How was the acting? It was decent at best, Shannyn Sossamon and Edward Burns were likable, but their performances weren’t great. The rest of the cast were decent as well, nothing special about the acting in this film.
I remember watching this movie when I was younger for the first time and being absolutely terrified. Like I was literally jumping every 5 seconds. Surprisingly when I just re-watched this film today to give a good review, I was still jumping, except this time I didn’t jump as often. My point is that the film provides scares and can creep you out, maybe not as much when you’re older, but I’m sure you will still jump here and there. The kill scenes were creative and intense, kind of felt like I was in a Final Destination movie. Look at this creepy scene: Overall I enjoyed this movie, wasn’t crazy over it, but it was a decent film. The story was pretty good, it was unique and well crafted. The acting was decent at best, there weren’t and performances that stood out. The film does provide scares and can creep you out. There were a few kills, each kill had a creepy kill scene. The movie will make you jump and does a great job with combining suspense and horror, to keep the viewer entertained in the film.
