The Bay (2012) – Mini Review

A gruesome tale of ecological horror that follows unfolding events in a seaside Maryland town as a deadly menace infests the bay and turns residents into hosts for mutant parasites.

I’m trying something new here. Quite often I don’t have much to say about a movie, so I end up not bothering to write a review, and then a couple weeks later I regret it. So, from now on I will do “Mini Reviews” where I just write an overall paragraph or two about what I thought.

The Bay is a movie about a parasite in fish that somehow has found its way into humans. Now, I’ve watched a few parasite movies in my life, and I don’t remember actually seeing nasty bugs, so I wasn’t even thinking about that when I started watching this one... Continue reading

Dark House (2009)

Trying to exorcise her worst memories, Claire returns to the foster home where she witnessed a terrible massacre years ago. But she and her friends soon find they've been locked inside with an evil spirit who wants to perpetrate another mass murder.

Had this one in my Netflix Queue for awhile before I finally watched it last night. I expected crap from this flick but instead got a mixed bag. While the acting and production values were pretty decent, other then a few CGI scenes I didn’t care for, the overall plot was interesting... Continue reading

Daybreakers (2009)

Earth's population is up against a vicious plague that's transforming everyone into vampires and draining the world of an increasingly precious resource: blood. Edward Dalton (Ethan Hawke) and "Elvis" Cormac (Willem Dafoe) must decide what happens next. As the human race count nears zero, will vampires feast on the few men and women who remain, or could science hold the key to a less destructive solution?

I went into this movie not knowing what to expect at all. All I knew was that it was about vampires, and Ethan Hawke was in it. So I was kinda surprised that it was so futuristic and that Ethan Hawke played a vampire. I had stayed away from all information on this movie, so I just had no clue what I was getting into. When it arrived today from Netflix and I read the description I figured I was in for a crappy movie but it ended up being pretty entertaining... Continue reading

Stephen King’s The Stand (1994)

When a lethal virus developed in a government lab accidentally filters into the general population, a devastating plague ravages the globe, leaving few survivors. Those who remain are compelled to follow one of two mysterious figures, leading to an immense winner-take-all battle between good and evil. Adapted from Stephen King's novel.

I saw this for the first time YEARS ago, probably back when I was 15ish, so sometime in 1997, and I recall LOVING it. I even tried to read the book once, and that’s like 1000 pages or close to it. I got halfway through the book and lost it. Found it a year or so later with the bookmark still in it, but I couldn't pick it back up from there. So I gave up... 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

Carriers (2009)

Four young people are traveling in search of a place to ride out the virus that has taken over the world. They have three rules they live by; 1. Avoid the infected at all costs. Their breath is highly contagious. 2. Disinfect anything they've touched in the last 24 hours. 3. The sick are already dead. They can't be saved. You break the rules, you die. You follow them, you live.

It sounded like a decent movie to me. I heard it compared to Stephen King's The Stand in one Netflix review, and I LOVED The Stand. I might have gotten myself a little hyped up and expected too much. While this movie wasn't bad, it didn't have a whole hell of a lot going for it either... Continue reading
