Mutilated Prey's 2013 List
Dale and Tucker vs. Evil - Hmmm, mildly entertaining horror spoof. I was expecting a little more like a Shaun of the Dead quality, but this doesn't come close.
DeathShip - Not only does this finally get a real release, but on Blu taboot! Looks great and the movie itself has a slight erie/creepy feel. Nothing crazy though.
Wrong Turn 3 - A little bit of a dip with this sequel. The movie itself isn't all that bad, but not my favorite story. The CGI on some kills is absolutely terrible.
Wrong Turn 4 - MUCH better than Part 3, some of the decision making still drove me nuts. Love the snowy/GhostKeeper atmosphere! The ending cracked me up.
The Grey - Good flick regarding men trying to survive not only the elements of the cold post plane crash, but some wolves that don't approve of their presence.
11-11-11 - Not as bad as all the terrible reviews I read. Some definite creepy images and relies a lot of jump scares. Still somewhat confused on the ending.
Looper - Seemed to have some "loop" holes, but overall pretty entertaining. I just didn't really understand why the Loopers needed to be killed 30 years later.
Chronicle - Another just alright movie that was a little over-hyped during it's initial advertising debut. Third person shot which was annoying at times, but OK.
Mother's Day - Better than the original? Let's not get carried away, but this is the type of remake I like for the most part - almost like a sequel/prequel of sorts.
The Tunnel - A pretty cool first person shot Blair Witch of sorts in Aussie land that takes place in abandoned World War II tunnels. Some creepy good stuff.
Screwballs - Took me a long time to finally watch this 80's sex teen comedy Blu. I think this may be the first of it's kind. It was good, but also annoying at times.
The Fields - Not what I was expecting, more of a drama with a weird unexplainable story. I think perhaps they tried to create a post Charles Manson flick?
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - The American adaptation of the Swedish masterpiece and not a bad job at all. Some scenes may have been slightly harsher.
Deranged - Revisited this for the first time since my original viewing. Kinda like a watered down Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but can definitely hold it's own.
Day of the Animals - Slightly after school special-ish, but still pretty entertaining. Some annoying characters, but the 70's campyness will keep you going.
Seven Psychopaths - Not bad with some great acting, intriguing story and decent gore believe it or not. A small homage to the Phantom Killer too is cool!
I Saw the Devil - Good movie, but way too long. Something like 2 1/2 hours? Not necessary at all. I like the story though, good guy screwing with the bad guy.
The Thing (remake) - It's actually a prequel that follows the same basic formula of the original. However, the CGI is slightly too much unfortunately. Not bad.
The Raven - A kinda cool adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe's poems that lead to grisly murders and a mysterious whodunnit. Not a bad ride, better than expected.
Don't Let Him In - Somewhat weak British horror, but the gore is pretty decent. The characters and dialog are very annoying and bad unfortunately. Too bad.
Saw V - Pretty good for the 5th installment of this franchise. I'm surprised I don't like them more as I always seem to enjoy them once they're viewed.
Death Dream - Second viewing and I really dug it. What a great flick, needs a Blu release. Very creepy, and leaves you guessing "why?" Oddball good ending.
The Pit - That's some good early 80's campy horror fun. So silly, yet very entertaining. Too bad the DVD is OOP, I should keep an eye out for sure. Good stuff.
Curb You Enthusiasm Season 8 - Watched the entire series over the weekend. Funny. Looking forward to Season 9, but I don't have HBO, gotta wait fror DVD.
The Island - Took me a long time to watch this movie, and I was lucky enough to get the Blu view! Better than I thought, but it has a little pirate cheese.
Bitter Feast - Oddball rental here that was somewhat entertaining. Josh from Blair Witch stars as a food critic that pisses off the wrong chef and gets tortured.
Black Death - Not bad for a medieval times flick. It panned out in an unsuspecting way which was good, and also I really liked the fact it wasn't too long.
Rabies - I tried to watch this movie twice and kept passing out. It's apparently the first Israeli horror film and was all subtitled which didn't help. Hard to follow.
Saw VI - Here we go again. Another sequel to a seemingly never ending franchise. Very entertaining, same story different victims and demises.
Saw The Final Chapter - Is it really over? I guess so? A pretty good ending to the franchise if so. I like how they tied many aspects of the series back together.
ATM - This was just OK for me. No background story at all here as far as I could tell. Just some whacko that likes to spec out ATM's and mess with whomever.
Man on a Ledge - Better than I was anticipating, but still not all that great. Had a decent little story and strategy to it that keeps you intrigued, but falls short.
Lighthouse - Was very happy to get my hands on this OOP flick. Has some great kills and eerie moments. However, I'm not sure exactly what the premise was.
Beneath the Darkness - Not sure how Dennis Quaid found himself in this movie, but it wasn't all that great. Kinda like a Scooby Doo mystery with meddling kids.
Tourist Trap - Great little creepy lost gem from the 80's. My second viewing. Not sure how this fell into Full Moon's hands and I think it is above their standards.
Footloose - I don't know how it happened but the wife and I saw this start, made fun of it for 5 minutes and got sucked into the rest of the movie. Cheesy 80's!
Walking Dead Season 2 - Rewatched over the course of a week. Good replay value as it was nice to pick up on a few things I missed like The Hat being bad luck!
Terror in the Swamp - How's this for Southern Fried Cinema? While there are many flaws the Southern twang alone is worth the price of admission. Crazy Sally!
American Reunion - Chapter 4 with no one missing other than Jim's mom (they killed her off). Some of the usual laughs, nothing groundbreaking, but still funny.
New Year's Eve - Wow, what a piece of crap. So many great names in this flick that essentially was made for teenagers I'd say and promote Times Square on NYE.
Red Riding Hood - It was kinda like watching an artsy Disney-fied werewolf movie. Some cool landscapes and shots, but overall not something I would watch again.
The Ward - Not as good as I was hoping. There's a decent twist which was kinda easy to figure out and been done before. Some slightly creepy moments too.
Doomwatch - Interesting little known flick about the effects of hormone dumping into the water by a little shore town. Kinda slow and the ending is unexpected.
Hands of Blood - Not great flow or action here. Just a somewhat crummy early 70's movie trying to jump on the slasher bandwagon, but has it's intriguing moments.
Savages - How a movie could start out so great, slide downwards terribly and have a ridiculous ending is beyond me. Directed by Oliver Stone too! Weak.
Killer's Delight - Another 70's sleazy slasher of sorts. It's got some good entertainment value, but I've seen better. The killer has some fun issues to witness.
Death Shock - Terrible, it's not a horror movie at all. It's amateur porn, slightly more than soft. It's peppered with a devil worship story, but it's mainly bad smut.
Ghost of the Needle - Not bad for a super low budget flick, but it was just way too long for the storyline. Got a little slow and repetitive is certain spots.
Deadly Daphne's Revenge! - This movie started out promising with some fun characters and some rape, but after that NOTHING happens till the end. Who's Daphne?
Taken 2 - This sequel was just OK, I admit I was expecting more after such a great original. The story kinda far-fetched and annoying at times, but at least short.
