half way decent 80's slasher with a little more gore
I'm a fan of 80's slasher films and I was a bit pleased with the fact that this film let out a little more gory scenes than your usual 80's slasher films do with the impact of a killing coming and then cut the scene right then, this film let it on through with the killing as well as the gore. It starts out that a local grocery store is about to be bulldozed and the store will soon have to go out of business. The store is stalked by a killer who is somewhere in the store and the workers go on a chase to catch the killer. This movie can be slow moving at times but it has it's moments of suspense that keep you interested and is well worth watching till the end where there is a twist. I recommend this movie for most 80's viewers of rare 80's slashers.
Shatter Dead (1994)
really bad road warrior zombie film
This movie wouldn't be as bad if it just had a half way decent leading actress in it. All through this movie I had to look a pathetic looking vagabond wandering around zombie town searching for a place that had non-dead existing humans left. I still couldn't understand why two half way good looking guys even considered this woman good looking. Anyway....This story starts off as Susan finishes her grocery shopping and is soon attacked by a group of zombies with the most unconvincing makeup that wouldn't even be fit for trick or treating on Halloween. This makeup looks as if it were bought at your local Dollar Store and slapped on a few innocent cheap paying bystanders. And then there is the Preacher who for what reason I don't know is in this movie steals Susans car and leaves her alone to fend for herself. She then shacks up at a local house where there are more ugly people like her living there and the house is soon invaded by a man dressed as Howard Sterns character Fart Man (they couldn't have that much originality so they they had to borrow from none other than Howerd Stern) who then shoots up the place and all the zombies are dead. I did think that the baby incident was a little gross but laughable as I watched a plastic doll being breast fed in a bloody bathtub. I do not recommend this film at all to anyone unless you cannot afford a doctor to cure you of your insomnia or that you have the need to loose weight by laughing so much.
The Libertine (2004)
started off good, but left off boring
Johnny Depp was hot in this movie, no lie. This movie started off as an interesting movie, I figured that it was well worth the rent as I watched Johnny do nothing but drink and play around with women. But the downfall in this movie is when he met the actress, at this point it went downhill because first of all she was not that attractive looking in the first place to picture love scenes with her and sexy Johnny Depp and this is basically what the rest of the movie consisted of was him and her. I would have rather seen him drunk during the movie. He ends up drinking himself towards his early demise and the actress had little or nothing to do with him other than use him for his teaching her more talent and sex. This movie I would not recommend and not one of his best.
pchycological thriller worth a look
This movie should be along with the cult classics, it's a pchycological thriller involving a demented mother and her daughter and somewhere during the movie a mentally disabled son. A group of girls are caught during a storm when their car wrecks and are soon brought to a house of the old lady and her daughter and soon discover their strange relationship. This movie is so full of curved balls you can't figure out just who the killer is in this movie that leads to the end of the travelers lives. One thing that was not explained was the weird way the old lady acted during the dinner table staring at silver salt and pepper shakers or whatever they were, which was one of the many strange things she did. There were a few strange scenes in the movie; why would somebody just sit in front of a piano and listen to this loony toon play the piano playing checkers? But it's all worth the watch as the end climaxes and the whole movie just throws me for a loop. Well worth a watch if you like strange, spooky thunderstorm type movies.
Girls Nite Out (1982)
worth a watch at least
Something about those 80's horror movies that gets me is the killer is almost always dressed in some animal costume. This movie is well worth a watch, but I wouldn't watch it again. The story line is dull and it took me three days in watch it in between stop and re-wind and play. But what I liked the most about this film is the reveling of the killers identity came as a surprise to me. It had you guessing and it wasn't predictable just who the killer could be; it could be a number of people in the film. I bought this movie mostly because of Hal Halbrook playing in it and I do enjoy a little cheesy acting in my 80's movies. It's a good movie for those into "Friday13th" type of movies but not worth it if you only have but so much money with you to rent videos at your local video store.
Blood & Donuts (1995)
Funny and Entertaining
I liked this movie, it's not your typical vampire horror movie where all the vampire does is go around feeding on the blood of strangers where this movie is about a vampire that looks as if he is trying to look like a sexy vampire but instead with his hair in almost dreads and homeless shabby clothes, dried up skin and ticking strange facial expressions I can't tell if he's supposed to be a human or beast. He looks as if he's spent too many days in the sun and has almost dried up and came back to life again. He meets up with this waitress at a donut shop that looks almost like him, a across between man and beast with scary eyebrows. The best scene is when he's taking a bath and decides to have sex with her in her sleep. He see's her on a regular basis and forgets about another lady that he also had an affair with decades ago. He finds a friend, a taxi driver who almost get's beat up and the man moves in with him and finds out that he's a vampire. The story continues where the vampire is afraid of dying and this is why he continues to life all these years. The vampire plays a sympathetic character as we feel emotionally sorry for him as he drags himself and others into his personal life. I would watch this movie but beware of the fact that it's not your typical blood, flesh and gut's vampire movie but if your with a date and you have popcorn, rent this one, you'll enjoy it.
The Dark Angel (1987)
Gothic drama at it's best
I look at this movie more as a drama than a horror movie because I did not see a whole lot of scariness in this movie but I did love the acting all except the kissing of Maude and her uncle Sylas....gross, I'd rather kiss snails than kiss his lips. That part of the movie made me sick. But I loved the acting of the evil governess. It made me think of the movie "Flowers in the Attic" of the character of the evil grandmother. But I never figured out just what was wrong with her uncle. Why we went into bouts of insanity and then all the sudden calm down and look at everyone as if they were mad. It made me feel for the characters because each one played their part excellent. The ending of the movie was a big let down though. I did not expect this movie to end that way. But it is a good movie if you like Gothic movies. I even see some ideas taken from "Dracula" in this movie.
Ghost Story (1981)
Good story but occasionally tiresome
This story had a good plot to it about four elderly men that share a deadly secret concerning a young woman that they met 50 years ago. After all this time, the young woman returns to seek revenge on the men. This story occasionally made me nod off during the movie in the middle of tiring elevator music and the ever so consistent thunder storms. But it is well worth the wait in the end when we find out just who the mystery woman is that keeps plaguing the old men in their dreams and interfering in a young man's life. The most of what I liked in this film was the suspense in which the young woman appears to the men just before their deaths. The special effects were something. Every time I heard her call out to them I would think "Not that face again." But it was a good movie, I just wish that the pace was not as slow or the acting not as tiresome. And what I also liked about the movie was the flashback of the 20's, very authentic as well as the costumes being original.
Toolbox Murders (2004)
Decent horror movie
I enjoyed this movie, it was not at all like the original "Toolbox Murders" made in 1978 staring Cameron Mitchell in which I liked better than this one but I was also relieved that it was not like the original but I do think that the title and original theme of a maniacal killer that goes around from apartment to apartment killing it's tenants was taken from the original. I liked the creepy looking goth type janitor; he was the only reason I kept watching the movie. The ending of the movie in which we figure out who the killer actually was was a big disappointment. Common....a baby being born to a dead mother? Nice twist but I was like "what?" When I did find out who the killer was. It had it's times with suspense and the usual goriness that Tobe Hooper has in most of his movies. It was a good movie to watch but I wouldn't own it or call it one of my favorites.
A Judgment in Stone (1986)
Pretty strange movie....
This movie begins where a lady living in England with her father is tormented by the memories of her childhood as an illiterate struggling to read. Her father teases her and nags her about going to school and learning how to read so that she can get a job. The lady, Eunice ends up going to America instead and becomes a housekeeper for a wealthy doctor and his family. Eunice learns how to manipulate people into getting what she wants because she cannot read and becomes a living nightmare for the family. She soon befriends a local church going lady and finds comfort in meeting someone just as crazy and insane as she is. The two become like a Bonny and Clyde team and take on the doctor and his family for revenge. I liked this movie, but it was not a movie that I would remember or even rent again. But it is worth a watch but only if there are no other horror movies your interested in on the shelf.
