About me on the boards-
I am horror fan that has been watching tons of horror films since the ripe old age of 5. I am now 28 years old with one of the hugest horror film libraries you will ever see. I like just about all types of horror films from 1970-Present. Never have been much into black and white or modern day foreign films though (hate to read sub-titles). I try to be really real even if that doesn't make me the most popular horror poster and be true to who I am as a horror fan. Ultimate goal in life is to make my own indepdent horror film. Another goal I would have to say is to create my own horror movie review website. As far as my favorite type of horror I would have to say that it is 80's slasher. My passion in life is for horror films.
Ghost in the Machine (1993)
* * out of 4.
Serial killer who murders people after he steals their address books is in a freak car accident while heading towards his newest would be victim's (Karen Allen) house. At the hospital he dies while getting a cat scan during the middle of a thunder storm. As a result his spirit is transfarred to the electrical system. There he continues to stalk and find the right moment to carry out his murderous ways.
If you can get past the premise, you might have some fun with this flick. The effects are average at best and the cast is nothing special, but the film does have its moments and a rather exciting finale. Rated R; Strong Violence.
* out of 4.
People waiting at a bus terminal tell each other horror stories from their lives. Film has some good moments, but is hurt considerably by a low budget, poor effects, slack direction, mediocre performances, and a surprise ending you will see coming from miles away. Not nowhere near as bad as some of Troma's previous efforts though. Rated R; Violence, Sexual Situations, and Profanity.
Devil's Prey (2001)
*1/2 out of 4.
Ripoff of a dozen or so 70's drive-in flicks about teenagers falling prey to town that seems populated by only devil worshippers. Decently paced with an appealing enough cast and some thrills and chills, but way too familiar to be effective. I kept expecting Yvonne DeCarlo to jump out somewhere. Rated R; Nudity, Violence, Profanity, and Sexual Situations.
Tequila Body Shots (1999)
* out of 4.
Confusing, dull and poorly made film about a college student having to go to hell and rescue the woman he loves from her abusive boyfriend from a past life. Awful effects, weak & laughable premise, inept dialogue, routine performances, half-hearted direction, and lame sets are just a few of its problems. Rated R; Sexual Situations, Violence, and Profanity.
Poltergeist III (1988)
* * out of 4.
Carol Ann has moved in with her Aunt and Uncle, who live in a state of the art skyscraper complete with mall, apartments, and various entertainment. Things seem to be back on track for her, she is enrolled in a school for gifted children and is getting treatment for the shock she suffered in the first two entries, but evil never dies. The evil preacher who stalked her twice before has now found her and is trying to Carol Ann to lead him to the light.
Clunky dialogue, a few over the top performances and a script that is inept at times, nearly destroy this entry. It does feature terrific effects, some rather tense scenes, and is rather original at times however. Rated PG-13; Violence.
Queen of the Damned (2002)
There pretty much isn't any plot to this movie untill Alayah arrives on screen. First half tells how Lestat came to be and a brief encounter with The Queen that lead to centuries of longing and lusting after her. Second half has Lestat going public as a vampire and The Queen reawakening to claim him as her king and her eventual killing spree.
Stuart Townsend turns in a wooden performance and the first half is pretty boring. It takes off when Alayah arrives on screen. She has a very commanding pressence in this film, she pretty much saves this film. And what the film lacks in substance it makes up in style and fast paced editing. * * out of 4.
The Glass House (2001)
* * * out of 4.
Young Sobieski aand her even younger brother lose their parents in a mysterious car crash. While still grieving, they are tooken in by the Glasses (Lane and Skarsgaads). All is fine at first, but then Sobieski starts to become suspicious of her new guardians and eventually there evil, money driven ways start to come to the surface in a violent finale.
What it lacks in orignality, it makes up for in the three leads excellent performances, especially Skarsgaads. The film is leisurely paced and keeps building layers upon layers of tension and toys with the mechanisms of differnet genres, untill it turns out a somewhat cliched ending. But still well worth the price of admission. Rated PG-13 for Strong Adult Themes, Violence, Drug Use, and Profanity.
American Pie 2 (2001)
*** out of 4.
Ok. Jim and his crew rent a vaction house for the summer and all the original cast returns, but the relationships between the guys and the girls from the first film have changed for the most part the guys rediscover true love and new friendships.
A sequel that is actually better then the first one. Sure it pretty much sticks to the formula that made the first one so successful, but it is much sweeter and funnier then the original film. The opening gag is very memorable and a scene involing Jim and Michelle and a musical instrument is a laugh riot. Also some very noteworthy gags are, the first gag with Stifler that I won't dare give away, and a scene with all the guys sneaking into a pair of supposed lesibans house. Also the relationship that builds between Jim and Michelle is very charming and endearing. The cast still has plenty of appeal and work very well together. Hope they release a part three soon.
Hollow Gate (1988)
The worst slasher film from the 80's.
Okay this is the plot of this movie; a young kid named Mark has a bad encounter with his father in which he almost drowns. Due to this one incident he goes comlepetely insane and starts butchering all the residents of a small town and some unlucky teenagers from out of town that are making a delivery on Halloween night.
No real story to speak of of, no acting or directing talent in sight, and no budget all add to one of the worst films ever made. Makes "Jack-O and Plan 9 From Outer Space" look like "Citizen Kane." That is just how bad this inept and how mind numbingly awful this piece of mess is.
DO NOT RENT THIS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!!!
The Clown at Midnight (1999)
Good, scary fun.
A group of students are reopening a theater soon, so during Christmas vacation they volunteer to stay and get it into shape, but the theather was plagued with the horrible murder of its star attraction. And one of the students is that star's daughter. Will history repeat itself?
Creepy and eerie from start to finish with a nice setting for the action to take place and featuring compenent direction and good performances. What makes it work so well though is the strong characterization of its central character and the appealing supporting characters.
My rating: 8 out of 10.
