A future cult classic
First off; this movie is a bit out there even in direct-to-video terms, but in this case, that isn't such a bad thing! The story revolves around a group of space vampire-hunters that go from planet to planet trying to exterminate the bloodsucker menace. Along the way; the crew must solve the mystery of why the defense systems of the human colonies on various planets are being shut down, allowing the vampires to massacre it's residents. As well as stop the Vampires from starting all out war with humans. Though the idea of the movie is a bit cheesy and there is literally no plot twists; Bloodsuckers has an unexpected charm that lures you in and keeps you watching. The only real problems I had with the movie was the worm-sock puppet and the constant bickering. However, Bloodsuckers made up for that by actually showing reasons why the crew start to trust each other, instead of the main character does something cool and they forget all their past discrepancies (A feet that most movies always do). Also, I enjoyed the idea of many different species of vampires, instead of just one (Yes, even the vampire worm IDEA was creative; not the actual worm itself.) In conclusion, Bloodsuckers is a strange, entertaining film. In my personal opinion, I would like to see Sci-fi channel make a series from this movie. (Hey, it can't be worst than tremors!)
The Monster Squad (1987)
Monster killing at it's best!
This has to be the greatest kiddy-horror movie of all time! I remember watching it when I was in first grade and thinking it was the scariest film I'd ever seen. Now I'm twenty yrs old and I just rented it again; and it's pretty scary (ex:Wolfman in ambulance). Anyway, for those of you who haven't seen it; the movie is about a group of twelve year old boys, obsessed with monsters and end up forming a club called the Monster Squad. But unknown to them, Dracula is real and has come to their town in search of a talisman that can open the gates of hell. So to aid him in his search, he recruits the horror world's most feared villains: The Wolfman, The Mummy, Frankenstein, The Three Sisters, The Creature from the Black Lagoon (Gillman). Now granted, if you haven't seen this movie, it made sound like the rest of the movie crap from the 80's, BUT IT'S NOT! Even Dracula...who is in the cheesy Black cape with red inside outfit, is very scary; especially when he's ripping apart cops. All and all, the movie was done very well considering the outrageous plot and the action is very solid.

BEST Game to Movie film
Doom...what can expect from a movie with this name. Now I have played the games before, but when walking in to see the film, I couldn't shake the fact that this movie was going to suck like the rest of the Video game-Films (RE 1&2/Alone in the Dark/Mortal Kombat Annihilation...etc). THANK GODDDDDDDDDD, I was wrong! Doom is an actual VG-Film movie that shocks and surprises. Those who have seen the film know what BIG SURPRISE towards the end, that I'm talking about. I loved everything in this movie (except Portman and some of Rock's acting). The action was solid, the hero was cold and cool, and that final battle WAS THE SHEOT! The acting is pretty much solid, except for some instances from the Rock and Duke. But overall, the film is packed with plot twists that actually shock you! And a dark storyline for John (REAPER) Grimm. And in conclusion, THAT FINAL BATTLE WAS THE SHEOT!!!!!!
Killer Instinct (2005)
A show with a real Killer Instinct!!! Slight Spoilers ahead
I know what most of the TV critics are saying about this show. That it's characters are wooden, the murders are too gruesome to be allowed on TV, and the plot is overall boring. But I have two questions for those critics. Why is Killer Instinct still around, months after it premiered? Or why is it improving the FOX Network's Friday night time slot? No need for a reply, I'll answer it for them. The reason is because the SHOW IS ACTUALLY GOOOOOOOD! The basis for the plot centers around a cop named Jack Hale (Johnny Messner), who in the pilot episode returned from a 6-month hiatus, after his partner/lover died at the hands of a mysterious serial killer.
From there on, Jack battles the most twisted serial killers in San Francisco using the full means of the DCU (Deviant Crimes Unit). Along for the ride, is his NEW partner, Danielle Carter (Kristin Lehman); who unlike most of the cops in the SFPD, she thinks Jack is one the best in the department.
The only other friend Jack has in the department is Lt. Matt Cavanaugh, played by the superb, Chi Mcbride. Now that all the storyline is out of the way, I can tell you what is good about the show.
The best part about watching Killer Instinct is JACK, JACK, and more JACK! This is a hero you haven't seen on TV before. Jack doesn't just hate criminals, he despises them. This may be due from the fact that his dad is a Serial Killer.
In the pilot episode, Jack was trying to catch a killer who murders his victims with poisonous spiders. When Jack finally does find the killer, he plants one of the spiders on him and lets it bite the killer. NOW THAT'S JUST COOL! Finally, a TV hero that isn't afraid to cross the line of right and wrong! Chi McBride is also a great addition to the cast, as he adds a certain gentle, yet hard dramatics to the show. much like he did on Boston Public. Kristin Lehman is smart and OH SO SEXY! Her and Johnny make an impeccable match.
All and all, I say Killer Instinct is definitely a show that the TV critics missed on. Just look at the facts. A handsome, dark hero, matched with interesting and twisted murder mysteries. What more could you ask for? I mean look at how the show is thriving and improving FOX's Friday night ratings. Just shows how much the TV critics know about what the people like to watch.
Deserves more respect
The story of Boogeyman centers around a tortured soul named, Tim. One dark night when Tim was just a young child, he watched his Father brutally murdered and dragged off into his closet by what he believes was the "Boogeyman". Many years pass and Tim finds himself to still be afraid of what goes bump in the night. Taking the advice of his shrink, who believes Tim couldn't cope with his Father abandoning him, Tim returns to his old town to face his dark memories and attend the funeral of his newly deceased Mother. But did his mind play tricks on him that night? Or could there really be a monster in his closet? Despite what some people may say about this movie, Boogeyman is not all that bad. The direction, music and overall feeling of the film was dead on the mark! In my opinion, the only way this movie fell short was in the ending and presentation of the Boogeyman. No one wants to see a digitally rendered humanoid monster, not when we have great makeup and effect designers of this generation...ala (Creeper, Freddy, Jason...etc). I also would've felt more impressed if they had gone more into the origin of the Boogeyman.
The ending was a bit of a disappointment as well. Lackluster...no. Bad scripting...yes. And I wish they would have elaborated on how the BM killed his victims. One of the only other saving graces of this film was Barry Watson as Tim. Throughout the movie, Barry did a great job as playing the tortured rebel type. Overall, is Boogeyman a great film? No way. But does it suck ass? Not really.
