Creepshow 2 (1987)

In an homage to the works of EC Comics the rotting but amiable Creep introduces this anthology of three gruesome tales written by the master of horror, Stephen King. In the first story, a wooden statue of a Native American comes to life...to exact vengeance on the murderer of his elderly owners. In the second, four teens are stranded on a raft on a lake with a blob that is hungry. And in the third, a hit and run woman is terrorized by the hitchhiker she accidentally killed...

I rented this movie a LOT as a teenager, I loved it. For some reason I didn’t see the first one until I was in my mid to late 20’s, and I wasn’t a huge fan of it... Continue reading

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 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

So this time around the daughter from the first movie is locked up in a loony bin because of what happened to her in the first film. She has a couple funny lines, especially “you have got to destroy that mattress!!” just the way it was delivered cracked me up. Anyhow we get a little recap of the end of the first movie right in the beginning... Continue reading

Hellraiser 3: Hell on Earth (1992)

Playboy club owner J.P. buys a mysterious looking puzzle box and mistakes it for a work of art, he has no idea that Pinhead - "the Black Pope of Hell," is trapped inside and playing tricks on his mind. Pinhead tries his best to manipulate J.P. into breaking him out of his prison -- that is, until an astute journalist begins to suspect something.

One thing that really annoys me about movies like this, is that nobody seems surprised that there are demons. Or that in the case of this movie there is a talking guy in a statue with pins sticking out of his head, or that he’s sucking them inside the stone. If that was me I wouldn’t be acting like it was an every day event! Continue reading
