March 2017 News

 

Holy cow I can’t believe it’s the end of the month and I’ve not posted a news article yet! GOOO ME.

A big month for the Irish, and I shall be attempting something a little special for St Patrick’s day, rather than another alternative Valentine’s day list. ← yeah this didn’t happen so it’s on the back burner but it will come, just be patient my lovelies Continue reading March 2017 News

January 2017 News – Here we go again…

chaser-title

 

So what to expect for this year.. I really can’t answer that right now, but hopefully plenty more bizarre posts and tragic reviews, thanks to everyone who held out this year gone, I tried to keep the blog fresh with new posts but I got sick around October and I’ve been in and out of hospital since then. In fact I’m going back in at the end of this week but I have queued a few things. More updates will be on the way, I hope they are positive, in the meantime I have a question..

 What do you think of when someone  mentions “British Cinema”? Which era and films come to mind first? Which actors and directors step out?

 

 

Another epic anime transformed into real people for the big screen, do these ever work? I really enjoyed parts of Attack on Titan (2015) but it got a bit preachy…

Eli Roth is directing Bruce  Willis in a new Death Wish remake… WTF?? More details here http://ihorror.com/eli-roth-directing-bruce-willis-death-wish-remake/

The Shape of Water is going to be get a movie remake, directed by Del Toro, probably the best director for a project like this but dude, where’s Pinocchio. The original author Andrew camilleri, penned the novel La Forma Dell’acqua that finally say daylight in 1994, and eventually got translated into English by 2002, and is the first novel of the Inspector Montalbano series. Del Toro has a habit of starting a series and not finishing it off *cough* Hell Boy *cough* Pacific Rim, so if this series is to be completed I’d imagine he won’t be making them all, but the book plays out like a sort of Dan Brown’s novel but less Illuminati and more social/political

Ridley Scott making shit up as he goes along??  Short answer, probably! I think prometheus was supposed to be the missing link but it raised more questions than it answered soooooo sequels and more cash who would avoid that?!

More details on the Bye Bye man, get up to date on the story behind the film from the author of the original book at the Paranormal Podcast. It’s another story I feel will be dumbed down by hollywood’s fascination to regurgitate the same schit in the films.. got my fingers crossed that this had a unique look and feel. Doug Jones can be a creepy fucker though but considering this should be played by an albino.. it would be nice to have a real albino play this role.. gerrr I think I will try and get hold of this bookie to get real thrills and chills.

Investigation 13 @i13_Movie a group of college science students look into a deadly urban legend.

The Bye Bye Man – an upcoming american supernatural horror film directed by Stacy Title and written by Jonathan Penner, based on a short story called The Bridge to Body Island by Robert Damon Schneck and will star Doug Jones. Three college students move into an old off campus house, where they find themselves hunted by a supernatural entity called The Bye Bye Man (Jones) who may be responsible for possessing various people and causing them to commit killing sprees throughout recent history..
A bit Creepypastaish but might just work.

LA WEEKEND… 2013 JUNE-02

It was supposed to be a quiet weekend with a bit of movie catching up. Instead I just watched a lot of Tales of the Unexpected.. (yes I know.. again.. Season 5 and 6 are all done and now onto Season 7 only two more to go).

In the meantime I did force in a few more movies. These included…

  • VHS2
  • AXE GIANT
  • PREY ALONE
  • TORTURED
  • EXORCIST THE BEGINNING
  • HUMMINGBIRD

VHS2 – I really enjoyed this sequel I didn’t think it was better than the first movie but it was really good. Full review on this coming up soon. Basically it’s another dose of short “real life” found footage bizarre horror.

vhs2

AXE GIANT – Oh man I didn’t see the subtitle on this it’s connected with Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue OX! I was expecting Norse Gods!! DAMMIT. Instead it’s a bunch of lame first time offenders and a lame Capt. Hartman impersonator.

PREY ALONE – This is an amazing 15 minute movie! All CGI, tough, gritty, a good plot and action we need more movies like this.

TORTURED – Dammit I gone done it again I wanted THE TORTURED! But I brought the wrong one.. Never mind!!!! I still enjoyed the film, it’s not the most thrilling but I loved watching Cole Hauser get a rectal search.. yes I’m a sick puppy!

EXORCIST THE BEGINNING –  The original prequel to the Exorcist and later remade as Dominion because this was apparently so rubbish.. and as ever I prefer this version. Dominion was cool because you got to commune with the devil but I really liked the message in this film.

HUMMINGBIRD – A big disappointment, I think someone was trying to prove that Jason can act and be a good guy etc, it has failed every times he’s ever tried.One good dream sequence scene and Jason gets to f*ck a nun.. not a pretty hammer horror busty nun either.. what’s going on man?

Hummingbird

And the rest of the weekend was 25 min short horror, thriller, mysteries.. oh they are sooooo good!
