    Drag Me to Hell (2009)


    [​IMG]

    Another revisit, and it didn't fare as well. Didn't help that my buddy's TV was set to a terribly distracting refresh rate, so everything looked sped up and cheesy. Sure, this is a funny, very Raimi horror film, but goddamn, the dialogue and setup (Stu, really? He's that shitty of a character? Pretty much everything at that bank is awful) are lazy. The scares and effects are fun but this never really clicked with me.

    I haven't updated since the 19th. I've still been watching stuff, but just couldn't keep up with posting, and unfortunately I can't remember everything I've watched between now and then.

    I tried. :(

    Although yesterday I watched the Full Moon DVD of Tourist Trap, along with two '90s VHS from Universal Home Video:

    I'm Dangerous Tonight (1990)

    Directed by Tobe Hooper and starring Madchen Amick and Dee Wallace as two women who find themselves doing disturbing things (including murder) whenever they put on a haunted red dress. R. Lee Ermey is the cop trying to solve the murders, while Anthony Perkins is the college professor who knows what's going on and is trying to track down the mysterious dress. Definitely not one of Hooper's better films, but those who aren't comparing it to TCM or Poltergeist might have a lot of trashy fun with it.


    [​IMG]

    The Companion (1994)

    Set in the "future" (2015), this one stars Kathryn Harrold as a romance writer getting out of a messy relationship (with a pre-Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston) who heads out to a remote cabin in the woods to get some writing done. She brings along a "companion", basically a robot butler, artificial intelligence (played by Bruce Greenwood) to help her out around the cabin. When she starts to develop an attraction to this robot, she configures his "sexuality" functions, turning him into her robot sex toy. But when her robot starts to develop an obsession with her, he begins killing anyone who gets in the way of their relationship. Worth mentioning, the cabin is the same one from Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter and Pumpkinhead.

    Masters of Horror S1: Incident on and Off a Mountain Road (2005) 6/10 **
    Fun episode featuring a woman that kicks ass, killer monster and a delightfully mad Angus Scrimm.



    [​IMG]

    Masters of Horror S1: Dance of the Dead (2005) 5/10 **
    A post-apocalyptic tale about dancing zombies that didn’t do much for me despite a fun Robert Englund and loads of titties. Not bad, just not my cup-o-tea.



    [​IMG]

    Masters of Horror S1: Pick Me Up (2006) 7/10 **
    A wise old trucker (Michael Moriarty) and young gentleman redneck (Warren Kole) square off as dueling roadside killers. Fairuza Balk plays a refreshingly smart final prey that both killers are chasing after. Wonderful cast and interesting from beginning to end.



    [​IMG]

    Masters of Horror S2: Right to Die (2007) 6/10 **
    A cool premise , well executed (other than one gaff) and some the most glorious breasts ever put on film. No surprise that Corbin Bernsen capably plays a sleazy lawyer. Season 2 DVDs are a noticeable step down in PQ from the Season 1 blu-rays.

    October 30th: Bloodsucking Freaks

    I was attracted to the seedy vibe of this one, and that's exactly what I enjoyed about it. The demeaning of women (or human beings in general) is in itself not enjoyable to me, but I wouldn't say that the misogynist content translates into a misogynist message. It's a dirty movie, but also a deeply satirical one, and Seamus O'Brien is one hell of an entertainer.

    Had the day off so I did a Marathon of compilation films. First up was Film Gore hosted by Elvira. Contains condensed versions of Blood Feast, Driller Killer, Drive-In Massacre, Snuff and a few more films. Elvira pops up from time to crack a few jokes. The film gets a bit long, but it's good if you want to have something on and not pay attention to it all the time.

    [​IMG]
    The next feature I watched Zombiethon is much the same. There's no Elvira, just a bunch of random women escaping some zombies and ending up in a movie theater. There's clips from Zombi, Zombie Lake, A Virgin Among the Living Dead and a few other films.

    [​IMG]
    Followed that up with Mad Ron's Prevues from Hell. It also features a bunch of zombies in a movie theater. But this time they're watching some really cool exploitation trailers.

    [​IMG]
    Finished the whole thing with a favorite from childhood Terror in the Aisles.

    I honestly don't get the appeal of no-budget, homemade stuff like this. The trailers can be amusing, but it seems like it would be excruciating to sit through a full feature.

    :lol: I know what you mean. I guess I built up a tolerance for these types of films from watching a lot of SOV movies back in the day and these no-budget films reminds me of them. I blind buy A LOT of these no-budget films and most of the time they're quite entertaining. Other times it's DEEP HURTING! I don't know, maybe I like the abuse :D.

    ^ Nice MST3K reference there!

    Final week of October:

    National Theatre Live: Frankenstein: Danny Boyle directs this stage adaptation of the classic tale, with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller switching the roles of the Doctor and the Creature in alternating performances. I saw Cumberbatch as Dr. Frankenstein, whom he plays with a cold, aloof intellect, which bodes well for his future as Marvel’s Dr. Strange. It takes a while to get going, but once it does, I enjoyed it. There is some unintentional humor in how Miller plays the intelligent Creature with the mannerisms of a retarded person, though.

    Rifftrax Live: Anaconda: The movie is enjoyable popcorn fare on its own, but there’s plenty for the RT crew to riff on. John Voight doesn’t just chew the scenery, he swallows it whole (see what I did there? Snake reference!). Preceded by another priceless short featuring the worst kiddie costume parade ever. Not my favorite RT live show (that would be Jack the Giant-Killer, followed by Godzilla 1998), but plenty of solid laughs.

    Saw 10th Anniversary: Like Halloween and The Blair Witch Project, this movie changed the face of horror cinema. It popularized torture porn, in which gruesome suffering, not merely death, is the ultimate fear. Its gritty, grimy look was also a trendsetter. While some of the stylistic touches are starting to look dated, the movie holds up, and when that music kicks in and the game is revealed, it gets me every time. I miss horror franchises like Saw and Paranormal Activity releasing yearly theatrical Halloween installments.

    [​IMG]

    That’s it for this year. Will finish up the rest of the Halloween series and box set soon. Signing off….

    Drácula [Spanish Version] (1931) **
    I enjoy the Bela Lugosi version but couldn’t get into Spanish Dracula. Carlos Villarías makes the goofiest faces and that kept me from being able to take the film seriously.

    Fright Night (1985) 4/10 **
    I assume this won’t be a popular opinion on this board, but I found FRIGHT NIGHT to be dull for the first hour and I didn’t care much for the cast either. It certainly picks up in the finale but not enough to redeem the rest.

    It sure is crazy how similar the RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD II and FRIGHT NIGHT posters look. I bet that caused some double takes on the VHS rental shelves back in the day.



    [​IMG]

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) 7/10 **
    Watched this with my 7 year-old son and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ve seen the remake a couple of times and I was surprised to find how much it followed the original. The finale in the remake is a bit stronger but overall I might like the original a bit better. Early on my son enjoyed trying to figure out why the people were acting different and then making guesses of who had been “snatched”. He’s a blast to watch movies with but he talks to damn much. One of traits I know I’ll miss when he grows up. The film looks nice on Amazon streaming in HD.

    We originally began the evening watching a VHS of Paul Naschy’s DEVIL’S POSSESSED. Within the first 10 minutes it was obvious that the VHS is heavily edited so we turned it off in hopes of someday finding an uncut copy. The edits are very sloppy and distracting. According to an Amazon review of the Sinister Cinema DVD, it is edited as well. Its safe to assume the copy on the PURE TORROR boxest is edited as well. Does anyone know where a quality copy of an un-edited version can be found?

    Kirstie Alley is perfect as a sleazy tabloid journalist and Brad Dourif is his usual creepy self but this episode is too predictable.

    The Hitchhiker: In the Name of Love (1987) 5/10 **
    With a story that revolves around a female assassin and another chance to watch the looney Susan Tyrell this October, IN THE NAME OF LOVE was guaranteed to please. It’s nothing special but definitely worth the time.

    The Hitchhiker: Homebodies (1987) 4/10 **
    The lead is a terrible actor. Episode didn’t do much for me.

    The Hitchhiker: Why Are You Here? (1987) 6/10 **
    Plenty of familiar faces and deliciously 80’s with a fun twist ending that I didn’t see coming. The found footage structure made it more interesting than it would have been otherwise.

    Oh, the only reason anyone watched The Hitchhiker was the guaranteed boob shot in every episode.

    The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror XXII
    Goosebumps: The Haunted Mask II
    Trick 'r Treat
    Halloween II (1981)

    I didn't start watching any horror stuff until around 6pm as I didn't want to do what I'd done in previous years and burn myself out watching too much in one day. Started off with The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror XXII (seen it a dozen times mind), not the worst Halloween special but it was one that continued the poor trend of spoofing movies that aren't horror.

    Then I watched Goosebumps: The Haunted Mask II, not seen this part for a lot of years but surpisingly (unlike the first part) it still holds up and I got those sane fun feeling I did from it when I watched in one Halloween many moons ago.

    Then me and my wife watched Trick 'r Treat, I introduced her to this film last year and she's been saying to me for weeks we have to watch it again this Halloween. I must say Ai'm glad we did watch it again, there might not be a film more perfect to watch on this day than this one. Seen it neany times and it gets better with each viewing.

    Finally after an hours break I sat and watched Halloween II (1981), again it's a film I've watched many many times but each time I watch it those same feelings rush back. This one is pretty much cemented as my second favourite in the Halloween series (right after the original of course) and plot holes, faults and all I'm gonna love this one forever.

    All in all I thoroughly enjoyed my Halloween night, didn't get many trick or treaters though but watched what I watched in the right mood is as good as it gets. Can't wait for next year!
