A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

A re-imagining of the 1984 slasher classic about Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who crosses the boundary between dreams and the waking world to gut his victims with his razor-sharp blade-fingered glove. As Nancy and her friends fight for their lives, they also uncover clues to a shocking secret from their past.

First off, let me say, I’m not a huge fan of the original Nightmare on Elm Street series. Yes, I grew up in the 80s with Freddy, Jason and Michael. But for some reason I just never liked the ANOES series very much... Continue reading

Day of the Dead (2008)

The town of Leadville, Colorado is plagued by a mysterious flu. Soon the towns people are turning into ultra fast flesh eating zombies. The military has been called in to quarantine the entire town, nobody in or out. Soon even they can’t help the situation as they are eaten by the hordes of zombies. Corporal Sarah Bowman, and a small group of people attempt to survive and head out of town. This is a remake of George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead.

I have NOT seen the original film, and at this point in time I don’t plan to. I’m a fan of the original Night of the Living Dead, and I enjoyed the remake a lot. I saw the original Dawn of the Dead years ago and thought it was horrible. I truly believe its one of those movies a lot of people like because everyone else does... Continue reading

Fright Night (2011)

Charley is a high school senior who’s on top of the world—he’s running with the popular crowd and dating Amy, the most coveted girl in school. But trouble arrives when Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. He seems like a nice guy––at first. But there’s something not quite right, and no one else, including Charley’s mom seems to notice. After his classmates start to mysteriously disappear without a trace, Charlie discovers that there is more to his new neighbor than meets the eye. Now he must do all he can to protect his mom and girlfriend Amy.

When I heard they were remaking this movie I got pissed. I loved the original film. Grew up with it. I even “sorta” enjoyed Fright Night Part 2. I had no idea what to expect out of a remake for this... Continue reading

Fright Night 2: New Blood (2013)

Studying abroad in Romania, high schoolers Charley and Ed must stop a sexy vampire's chilling plan to bathe in the blood of a "new moon virgin" -- who happens to be Charley's ex-girlfriend. The guys enlist the help of a vampire-hunting TV show host.

After the disaster of Fright Night the remake, I didn’t think this sequel to the remake could be much better. And other then some obvious flukes, it was actually the better of the two. That’s saying a lot since it was filled with a bunch of nobodies, and it was obviously NOT a sequel. No way it could have been. Continue reading

I Spit on Your Grave (2010)

[rating:4/5] In this horror remake, young writer Jennifer finds life at her rented retreat perfect for working on her first novel. But her enthusiasm is shattered by her vicious rape. Now, the local thugs responsible will face an excruciating fate, as she brutally kills each and every one of them.. Continue reading

Night of the Demons (2009)

[rating:3/5] When she set out to throw the ultimate Halloween party, Angela (Shannon Elizabeth) picked the spookiest site she could find: the rumored-to-be-cursed Broussard Mansion. But by "ultimate," she didn't mean for it to be her last. Still, thanks to gates that have inexplicably locked, Angela and her friends (Edward Furlong, Monica Keena, Bobbi Sue Luther, John F. Beach, Michael Copon and Diora Baird) are now trapped inside with no way out. Continue reading

Piranha (2010)

[rating:3/5] Alexandre Aja's remake of Joe Dante's campy 1978 horror film, is itself a satire of Steven Spielberg's Jaws. When an earthquake tears open the bottom of Lake Havasu, schools of carnivorous piranhas are released from their underwater lair, and the lake turns into a bloody, frenzied death trap for unwitting water-goers during spring break. Continue reading

Prom Night (2008)

Donna and her friends head off to senior prom, but what Donna doesn’t know is that a killer who stalked her years ago has followed her to the hotel where Prom is taking place. One by one her friends are killed off as he tries to get her alone. Will Donna be able to escape? This is loosely remade from the 1980 film of the same title starring Jamie Lee Curtis.

Other then this taking part at a prom, and the title, there is nothing in it like the original film (from what I remember). It wasn't that bad of a movie, if say you are a 12-13yr old who has never seen a horror movie... Continue reading

The Amityville Horror (2005)

[rating:3.5/5] Hapless home buyers George and Kathy Lutz discover their dream home is possessed by evil spirits in this terrifying remake of the 1979 horror classic, based on Jay Anson's popular book -- and a reportedly real-life haunting. As it turns out, the Lutzes home has a bloody history - a former occupant killed his entire family there - so it doesn't take long for terror to come knocking. Continue reading
