10.00pm Jack Frost »
Shelter is a very disappointing supernatural horror film that promised a lot from its opening 20 minutes with a creepy performance from Jonathon Rhys Meyers and an interesting take on schizophrenia but it all ended up as a ridiculous mess that was nowhere as clever as it thinks it is.
The story comes from the pen of Michael Cooney who also wrote the very enjoyable John Cusack/Ray Liotta vehicle “Identity” and it’s a very similar in dealing with multiple personalities and murder but unlike Identity the pay off is not as satisfying or easy to accept which is a huge shame. Cooney is also the writer director of the hilarious cult horror movie Jack Frost (The horror one, not the vomit inducing family one) and although it’s classed as a “Horror” film I’m not sure it can be tagged as one which is similar to what this movie is being portrayed as. »

It’s that time of year again, kids. Dread Central’s 2010 Horror at the Oscars coverage. Horror was indeed present this year and in black-tie. While Roger Corman and Lauren Bacall were honored a few months back at the Governor’s Award Ceremony, it was an unexpected delight to see Corman, recipient of the lifetime achievement Oscar, enjoy a standing ovation on national television.
I was, however, very disappointed that neither of them were allowed to speak. Roger Corman’s contributions to modern cinema are too vast for him to just stand up and wave. James Cameron was one of many Corman acolytes present, and his nomination speaks to Corman’s tremendous legacy. On the Terminator DVD Cameron mentions, "I trained at the Roger Corman Film School.” Jonathan Demme, Martin Scorsese, and Francis Ford Coppola, among many others, were also former students.
The terror continued with a spoof of Paranormal Activity »
