Piranha 3DD (2012)

There's blood in the water when a hungry pack of piranhas set their sights on scoring tasty morsels from a bustling water park. The all-star cast of potential victims includes David Hasselhoff, Christopher Lloyd, Gary Busey and Ving Rhames.

After viewing this last night, quite frankly I don’t have much to say about this movie other then I didn‘t like it. So I’ll keep this rather short... Continue reading

Island by Richard Laymon (Book Review)

[rating:3.5/5] When Rupert set out on a cruise with seven other people, he planned to swim a little, get some sun and relax. He certainly didn't plan to get shipwrecked. But after the yacht blew up, that's what happened -- he and his shipmates were stranded on a deserted island. Luckily for them, the island has plenty of fresh water and enough food to last until they get rescued. And luckily for Rupert, most of his fellow castaways are attractive women. But that's where his luck ran out -- because the castaways aren't alone on the island. In the dense jungle beyond the beach there's a maniac on the loose, a killer with a murderous heart, a clever mind and a taste for blood. 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

Hellraiser (1987)

Having lost his earthly body to three demons, the man's been brought back to life by a drop of blood on the floor. Soon, he's forcing his former mistress to bring him human sacrifices to complete his body.

I know I’ve seen this movie before but I didn’t really remember it except for a funky looking dude in an attic. I saw it many many years ago as a teenager and I just didn’t get the fascination with it. Recently the movie channels have been playing the first three so I decided to DVR them and attempt to get into them again… Continue reading

Now, the teens must claw their way out of the woods without springing one of the brothers' ingeniously lethal snares.

You must know that this movie isn’t what I would call good. The plot isn’t very good, but its not horrible. Its one of those movies where the backstory can be told in one small paragraph but that’s okay, you don’t really need more. Its nothing special, but come on, most horror movies aren’t. It also doesn’t take itself completely serious... Continue reading
