This Just In!: Annabelle Sucks

Yes, I watched it. But I don’t want to write a review for diluted PG-13 Horror garbage. I don’t mind the rating(Edit: Turns out, it’s rated R. I really don’t know why though. I actually lost a bet to a friend that it was PG-13). I don’t mind Horror. I love Horror! In film of, course.

But when it’s diluted, well then that says it all doesn’t it?

It gets boring coming up with different ways to indirectly insult the movie a lot of people put time and effort into and it’s too easy. I’m faceless and behind a computer, pointing a digital finger at a bunch of people who may have just had this thing tossed in their lap. Continue reading

Movie Review: Devil’s Due

Stars: Allison Miller, Zach Gilford, Sam Anderson, Roger Payano

Rated R for language and some bloody images, Running time 89 minutes, Horror/Suspense

Compare to: Rosemary’s Baby (1968), The Last Exorcism (2010)

As good as I believe many “found footage” films can be, there’s always been the potential to use this gimmick, more or less, as making a cheap film still be on a similar playing field as the big budget boys.

And while the plot is strikingly similar to Rosemary’s Baby, I don’t believe this film was destined to be a waste of everyone’s time as something like The Last Exorcism 2 was, Devil’s Due unfortunately falls in the same realm as another “Ooh does that get you? No? But the camera shook and that scream was really loud!”

Sigh… Continue reading

Since it’s October, I thought I’d update my list of MBTI typings of Horror villains, since I just recently updated Batman as well. Several characters that are pretty well known and liked came to mind but you really just can’t type forces of nature, or demons depending on the nature of the story. Pumpkinhead, Pazuzu, and Samara for instance, are more things than personalities; like a hurricane or a rabid dog or something.

Check out these other pages while you’re at it. From most recent to oldest. I spent time on these, people and it’s embarrassing that Miley Cyrus post got as man views as it did, damn the curiosity!

I love October. It starts getting cold, things start dying, and Halloween comes in right at the end to top everything off. It’s also the one time of the year I’m tempted to sit in front of my TV for hours because certain channels show a hundred Horror movies I might otherwise not get the chance to see.

I’ve done the article typing a few of film’s favorite madmen, but how are types specifically represented in Horror? Some usually have a bigger role than others but everybody’s got their place. And everybody dies at some point. In real life of course, but definitely in the movies. And definitely real life too. Continue reading

Movie Review: The Collection

Posted in Reviews! with tags , , , , , on 11/29/2012 by McCutcheon

Stars: Josh Stewart, Chris McDonald, Emma Fitzpatrick, Randall Archer

Rated R for strong bloody violence, grisly images, language and brief nudity, Running time 82 minutes, Horror/Thriller

Compare to: Cube (1997), Saw II (2005)

I’ve got to be honest, I’ve been waiting on this one for a while. It’s not that the predecessor to this film, The Collector (2009) is a must-see film before you die, I just liked it for what it was anyway: bloody horror, with an antagonist to the villain, something we rarely get in horror movies. Usually, the most we can hope for is a woman running away in her underwear that actually survives, but that’s about it. Her jock boyfriend isn’t as likable as he’s meant to be either. But those are other Horror films.

So an antagonist to the villain would make him a protagonist correct? Again, usually this is true but here, that basic plot lines are abandoned since this is Horror and it’s all about the villain anyway, right? Continue reading

The Malevolent Deceased

Posted in Whatever with tags , , , , on 10/25/2012 by McCutcheon

Last week, we were talking about the real, physical killers in Killers You Can Touch. Their oh so menacing ways of getting you in  a corner with their revved up chainsaw or their sharpened knife, and then then making you pay for all those years of child abuse that they suffered or when they had their toys taken away, what have you.

But now onto what actually has the possibility of freaking me out. That would be the supernatural side of Horror. There’s a lot of crap out there for sure, but the stuff that affects you can really get to you. Continue reading
