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!
Review: Alien is a horror movie, that is a part of one of the most well known franchises based on the alien creature. I actually have never seen the whole movie, but since I picked up the Alien Anthology box set I just had to give it a watch. Alien was a great movie and I did enjoy the film, but unfortunately the movie really didn’t live up to the hype for me. Don’t get me wrong though like I said Alien is a fantastic movie, but everyone was making it seem like it was so much better than it actually was.
The story for Alien was very well planned out and truly delivered. This movie focuses on a space crew that is traveling back to earth but encounters problems along the way. After searching an unexplored planet a creature manages to board the ship and starts to cause havoc for the crew. Alien provides us with good plot twists and some nice thrills. How was the acting? The acting in Alien was off the charts. Sigourney Weaver and Tom Skerritt both had excellent performances. The supporting cast all did great with their roles as well, this was just an all around great acting performance from the Alien cast.
Alien provides the viewer with some good scares and great kills. Now the movie wasn’t that terrifying there were a few good scare scenes, but nothing crazy. Most of the time I was just sitting there waiting for something to happen, I just wish that this movie could have given us some more frightening scenes. Although, the movie really did deliver when it came to the kill scenes, they gave the viewer a shot at gore and some good thrills. Sure, there could have been more blood, but what they gave us was fine. Check this crazy scene out. Overall I loved the movie Alien and thought that it was a entertaining movie. The story was entertaining and did do a good job with keeping me into the movie. The acting was very well done, Sigourney Weaver and Tom Skerritt were both enjoyable to watch. The only thing I can really say about the movie is that I wish it had more scare scenes and gore. The kills were great, but the alien didn’t really look all that scary compared to the AVP alien. You can kind of say the CGI helped make that alien scarier, but I can honestly say this movie was great. I do prefer the movie Predator though, nothing tops that! If you haven’t seen Alien yet, I absolutely recommend you watch it!
Plot – This film starts off with the good guy doll company remodeling the burnt good guy doll, which if you remember from the end of the first film is Chucky. Chucky then tracks Andy down to a home where he is living with his foster family. While in the house Chucky switches place with another good guy doll that was in the house and continues to try to possess his body. The rest of the film just mainly consists of Andy trying to convince his foster family that Chucky is trying to kill him. Will the notorious serial killer finally get what he wants?
Review – Child’s Play 2 was actually a very solid sequel and I actually think it was better then the first film. I really don’t know for sure what makes this film better then the first Child’s Play, there is just somethings about this movie that I just really enjoyed. One thing I enjoyed about this film was seeing the relationships of Andy and his new foster family develop, especially the relationship he starts to grow with his new foster sister. I liked how in the movie we have the two kids who’ve had tough lives join together to fight against the evil Chucky. I also loved that they put more dark comedy in this film. Whenever Chucky was getting ready for a kill he always said some funny line that just made the scene way more amusing then it probably would’ve been. It was really funny to see how much Chucky was trying to get Andy in trouble with everyone and it was even better because he did it with some dark humor. The story line and acting in this movie was great, I really enjoyed every second of this film. Andy was a little bit older in this film and you can tell that he really improved his acting, he did a great job with his role in the film and the supporting cast was great as well. There were plenty of great kills and kill scenes in this film. In this film we see more of Chucky, which leads to a more entertaining film. Overall this film is absolutely worth watching it brings us a more entertaining Chucky with a great story line that is very enjoyable. The dark humor like I said before did great things for this movie. If you haven’t seen this movie yet I absolutely recommend that you go watch it. You wont regret it!
I give this movie a 9.5/10
Jaws – This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. The film takes place on the 4th of July and has a giant shark that ruins everyone’s fun.I love this film and will absolutely be watching it this weekend, hopefully all of you do to. You will love the movie!
I Know What You Did Last Summer – This was a solid slasher film. I really enjoyed watching it and I think this is a great movie to watch during the 4th of July weekend. This film I believe also takes place around July 4th, even if it doesn’t the film still has its patriotic moments. Hope all of you get to watch these great films! I know I will!
This film starts off with Sally Hardesty and her paraplegic brother Franklin travel with their three friends to visit their grandfathers grave because their have been reports of grave robbing in the area. After they leave the grave they decide to go look at the old Hardesty home. While they are driving they pick up a hitchhiker who talks with Franklin about the slaughter house that the guy worked at.To amuse himself,the guy takes Franklin’s knife and cuts himself for fun. The guy then proceeds to take a picture of Franklin and demands that Franklin must pay for the picture, Franklin refuses so the guy cuts him with a razor. The group then throws him out of the van and continues on their way to the house. Once they get to the Hardesty house the group look around and then Franklin tells Kirk that their is a swimming hole around here, so Kirk goes to look for it. After Kirk and his girlfriend find the swimming hole they find a house. Since their car is low on gas Kirk goes inside the unlocked house to ask for gas, where Leatherface comes out and kills him. Pam then enters the house to look for Kirk but Leatherface grabs her and impales her on a hook, he then cuts up Kirk with his chainsaw. Jerry goes out to look for the couple in the nearby house and finds Pam alive but before he is able to help her Leatherface kills him. Wondering where their friends are Sally and Franklin go to look for them and Leatherface runs out of the house and kills Franklin with a chainsaw. Sally begins to run away and is chased by Leatherface (who is running at her with a huge chainsaw). These events lead up too a really great ending that you need to see if you haven’t watched the movie already. Overall I really loved this film and thought it really defined the horror genre. This movie had me scared and creeped out the whole time. Not only is Leatherface scary in general but they have him pop out at random moments and scare the shit out of you, especially when he is running with the chainsaw because that is probably the scariest part in the movie. There weren’t a lot of kills in this movie but the kill scenes were really good and were extremely gruesome. The story line worked really well in this movie and the actors all did a decent job with their roles.I have no complaints about this amazing classic which kind of started the slasher genre. It is a really violent film that is worthy of watching. This film was highly enjoyable and if you haven’t seen it yet I would absolutely recommend that you go watch it. You won’t regret it!
I give this movie a 9.5/10
This movie doesn’t look to be that bad. I absolutely think that it looks better than the first film. The original Purge film didn’t really live up to the expectations I had for it so I am not getting to excited for this one, although it does look like it will be a highly enjoyable film. This movie looks like it combines horror with some intense looking action scenes. That being said I don’t think that this movie will be that scary but it does look violent and we may get lucky and see some scary scenes as well. Am I going to be seeing this film? The answer is yes, after watching the trailer it makes this movie look like it will be a good one. Lets hope that I am right when I say it doesn’t look that bad and hopefully when I go to watch it I actually enjoy it unlike the first one.
After watching this trailer I think that this will be a solid movie in the Leprechaun franchise. The trailer really doesn’t give that much away except that a group of friends go to Ireland and arrive at a cabin which is where they see the leprechaun. I like that the trailer didn’t give us any spoilers at all, it kind of makes you want to see the movie even more to find out what happens. This movie does look really different from the previous Leprechaun films, the other movies in this franchise were horror/comedy but after watching this trailer you can tell that they tried to make this movie a straight horror film. This might not necessarily be a bad thing. I was a bit skeptical when I saw the trailer for Curse of Chucky because I saw that they were trying to make it all about horror with absolutely no comedy in it but after I watched it I thought it was such a great film. Who knows how good this movie can be? We might see a whole different leprechaun in this movie which can make this upcoming film really entertaining. I’ve always liked the Leprechaun films and I will be seeing this one when it comes out.
