21 of cinema’s worst elevators

Kirsten Howard Mar 31, 2017

From The Shining to I Origins, these are just some of the worst offenders when it comes to moving between floors...

This article contains spoilers for just about every film on its list.

I don’t know when it started exactly.

When I was very young, it was fine. I maybe even enjoyed getting on an elevator and being whisked off, but somewhere in the timeline of my life, something changed. I began to dread stepping onto one. My heart would pound, a cold sweat would creep down my neck and my breath would quicken.

“What’s wrong?” a bemused acquaintance would ask as we were about to embark.

“Oh! Nothing, really,” I’d respond as casually as I could for someone suddenly about to lose control of their bowels. “I just thought I might take the stairs. Bit of exercise, you know.”

“But it…it’s 18 flights,

Let’s be honest, horror movies never get old!

Serial killers, ghosts, monsters, and zombies, we just can’t get enough. (Is that bad to admit?) Nonetheless, horror movies give a thrill like no other and they have introduced us to some of those most iconic and unforgettable characters in the history of film! As weird as it sounds, we just can’t get sick of the horror these films bring us, and that’s why sequels are the best.

Whether we want to know more of a backstory, or we simply want to see more characters endure absolute horror, sequels to horror films give us just that.

There’s a reason horror movies have so many sequels, it’s because they always deliver! Check out our favourite horror movie sequels below.

10 Movie Sequels That Are Borderline Remakes

  • Cinelinx
Over the years, sequels have gotten a bad rap for representing lack of originality in film making. These are some examples of such films that didn't exactly exude creativity.

Coming up with ideas for movies is hard. Coming up with ideas for sequels can be even more challenging. That's why so many of them rely on what has been done before. As an example of this phenomenon, here are ten films that are boarderline remakes:

The Gimmick Films: There are many movies out there that relied on a gimmick in order to fill theater seats. For some of those films, the gimmick worked so well that the film was a hit. What does Hollywood do with its hits? Make sequels of course! And what does Hollywood do with sequels for a gimmick film? Use the same gimmick again (with just a few minor changes)! Why mess with success….right?

Drive-In Dust Offs: Night Warning (1982)

  • DailyDead
Crazy has always tapped a main vein in horror films; if it didn’t we would be stuck watching films of people being pranked or wronged, who laugh it off and become dentists instead (with all due respect to Corbin Bernsen). Now, of particular interest to me is when the sins of the flesh meet that fracture of the mind; where the lascivious and the lurid tangle in sweaty, blood stained sheets. And 1982 coughed up a doozy (in character and content) with Night Warning, a tale of a very protective aunt who doesn’t want to see her nephew leave the nest.

Also known as Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker (a cool title, but neither relate to the story at all), Night Warning was distributed by Comworld Pictures in early ’82 (but didn’t go wide until early ’83) and garnered some good reviews while passing by audiences. Why? Because it was just

Sky1 announces an Indiana Jones-style adventure series

Sky1 is diving into a world of adventure with a new Indiana Jones-style drama series.

Michael Landes and Ophelia Lovibond will play the title roles in Hooten & The Lady - an international caper from writer Tony Jordan.

Lovibond is Lady Alexandra Lindo-Parker of the British Museum, who teams with adventurer Hooten - played by Landes.

Together, the pair track down fabled treasures from the past, including the lost Amazonian golden city of Z, the Buddha's missing scroll and the lost tomb of Alexander the Great.

"Humour, action, adventure and Tony Jordan - where do I sign up?" said Landes. The star of Final Destination 2 - and the original Jimmy Olsen on Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman - described the project as "an opportunity of a lifetime".

W1A actress Lovibond added: "I've never played a full-on action role like The Lady before, so I'm really looking forward

Jovy Skol’s Ten Best Opening Kills In Horror

Alfred Hitchcock shocked audiences in 1960 with his black and white classic Psycho when he decided to kill of leading lady Janet Leigh in the first 45 minutes. Her death scene was considered brutal and almost pornographic in the standards of that day, but Hitchcock didn’t care. He wanted to scare and take you by surprise. Since then, many films have successfully utilized this technique of opening their films with murder and here some that had me hooked.

Halloween

Definitely one of the most famous scenes in horror story, the original 1978 classic opens with a Pov scene of a mysterious voyeur. We watch through his eyes as two teenagers make out while he grabs a huge knife and mask, waits for the boyfriend to leave and makes his way upstairs. He finds the girl in just her underwear, combing her hair unaware that she’s about to be stabbed to death.

Contest: Win a WolfCop Prize Pack, Including a Blu-ray Copy, Flask, Signed Poster, Comic Book & More

  • DailyDead
Imagine if high school student Scott Howard from Teen Wolf grew up, traded his letter jacket for a police uniform, and became a barely functioning alcoholic. Sound interesting? Then you'll likely dig Lowell Dean’s WolfCop, a creature feature with a wicked sense of humor that's packed with blood-soaked practical effects. Today, Image Entertainment unleashed WolfCop on Blu-ray and DVD, and to celebrate the release, they've provided us with two prize packs to give away to a couple of lucky Daily Dead readers. The grand prize contains a Blu-ray copy of the film, a flask (to go with the bottoms up spirit of Lou Garou), a signed poster featuring WolfCop sprawled out on his own human skin, and more.

"Officer Lou Garou isn’t the best cop in small-town Woodhaven – in fact, he’s probably the worst. He mostly just looks to avoid anything that could possibly interfere with his goal of getting wasted.

'WolfCop' Movie Review

  • MoreHorror
Reviewed by Robert J. Thompson II

MoreHorror.com

WolfCop (2014)

Written and directed by Lowell Dean (13 Eerie) and starring Leo Fafard (Corner Gas: The Movie), Amy Matysio (Lawrence & Holloman), Jonathan Cherry (Final Destination 2), Aidan Devine (Outlander) and Sarah Lind (Severed).

This weekend has been dubbed “Werewolf Weekend”, as I have not one, but two movies to review, that just both happen to be werewolves. I wasn't sure what to expect, when I was asked if I wanted to review WolfCop. Any werewolf movie immediately has my attention, but this just had 'cheesy schlock film' written all over it. It just raised a whole lot of questions in my mind, and I wasn't certain I'd be able to give it a good review, let alone finish the thing.

However, WolfCop is a perfect example of why you shouldn't judge too harshly, before giving something a chance. Was it cheesy? Absolutely. Was it schlocky?

See Rita Ora (And Her Crazy Wig) in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'
Rita Ora looks like a different person with a bob.

Look no further than the newest Fifty Shades of Grey movie posters to see her in a black, short wig.

Post by Fifty Shades of Grey.

In contrast to the wig, her most recent blonde 'do is long enough to hold together in a bun as seen at the 2014 American Music Awards.

Ora, 24, is playing the role of Christian Grey's littler sister, Mia Grey. Her part gave the "Black Widow" singer a chance to transition beyond her career in music.

Ora recently told UK's Capital FM, "This was such a great cameo to be involved in, and even though it's only in for a little bit, it's opened a door to a lot of movie things that I haven't actually announced yet."

The highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey comes out in Feb. 2015 and is based on the best-selling erotic novel by E.L. James. The story is

Watch The Explosive Theatrical Trailer For Indonesian Actioner Guardian

There's a whole lot of banging and crashing (and punching and stabbing and exploding) in the theatrical trailer for Helfi Kardit's upcoming Indonesian action film Guardian. Boasting an international cast that includes Final Destination 2's Sarah Carter alongside local stars including Tio Pakusadewo - about to be familiar to action fans around the world thanks to his bad guy part in Gareth Huw Evans' The Raid 2 - Guardian stands as yet another example of the Indonesian industry continuing to step up their game in the action arena. No, the CGI is not all up to Hollywood standard, but the production values are very strong and the scope and ambition is undeniable. Keep an eye on Kardit and his Skylar Pictures ... I expect this...

Review: 'The Raid 2' delivers visceral thrills on an epic scale
Park City - What makes a great action filmmaker truly great? Is it just the ability to orchestrate and shoot mayhem? If so, then David Ellis would have to be considered one of the greats simply for the highway crash sequence in "Final Destination 2," and pretty much every other scene he ever shot would negate that idea. And if pure mayhem is what makes you great overall, then the destruction of Chicago means that none of Michael Bay's weaknesses as a filmmaker matter, right? There are a number of directors out there right now who deserve more credit than they...

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2004

  • Den of Geek
Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 9 Jan 2014 - 06:25

We head back a decade to look at a few films that deserve more attention. Here’s our list of 25 underappreciated movies of 2004...

Think back to 2004, and you might dredge up hazy memories of the computer-generated fairytale sequel Shrek 2, Alfonso’s Harry Potter installment, The Prisoner Of Azkaban, or maybe Mel Gibson’s phenomenally successful Passion Of The Christ.

It’s rather less likely that you’ll remember some of the films on this list. You’re probably aware of the drill by now: we’ve gone back into our distant, beer-addled memories to find 25 of the less commonly-lauded movies from the year 2004.

Some of them did reasonably well at the time, but appear to have been forgotten since (especially the one eclipsed by its own internet meme), while others were coolly received by the public or critics (and sometimes

Criminal Minds Season 9 begins this Wednesday. And in anticipation of the premiere, TV Fanatic sat down with A.J. Cook to discuss the coming episode, along with what happened with J.J. during those months in Season 6 when she was Awol.

The Best And The Worst Horror Sequels

  • HeyUGuys
As Insidious: Chapter 2 continues to divide audiences we at HeyUGuys started thinking about our own favourite and least favourite genre sequels. At one time all sequels were derided as derivative and unimaginative cash-ins, but with remakes taking on the mantle of ultimate evil is seems that the humble sequel has been relegated to secondary villain.

As we decide which camp we fall into re: Insidious 2, then, here’s our list of the best and the worst five horror sequels.

The Best Of The Bunch Final Destination 2

Probably my favourite horror sequel of all time, Final Destination 2 does everything a continuation should do, regardless of genre.

It’s bigger, drawing together a larger number of characters; it’s bloodier, opening with one of the most Ott disaster scenarios in cinema and finding ever more gruesome and unlikely ways of re-killing its unlucky survivors; and it adds to the mythology,

Open Road acquires Eric Bress’ ‘Testament’

  • LRM Online
Deadline is reporting that Open Road Films has acquired the U.S. rights to the supernatural thriller Testament. The film will be directed by The Butterfly Effect‘s Eric Bress, from a script he wrote.

Here’s the synopsis from Deadline:

The thriller takes place at a prestigious boarding school in a remote part of Texas and revolves around a science teacher and his students who are forced to fight for their lives when the Ten Plagues of the Old Testament descend not only on the town, but the entire world. It starts with blood filling the school’s swimming pool — as fast as it fills rivers, lakes and oceans worldwide — and that is followed by frogs, lice, wild animals, pestilence, boils, hail, locusts, darkness and death of the first born.

Filming is expected to start in March of 2014 for a theatrical release in 2015.
