Addams Family Reunion: the sequel that time forgot

Simon Brew Nov 15, 2017

After Addams Family Values struggled at the box office, another film still followed a few years later. But Addams Family 3 this was not...

Were the world right, then in 1993, Addams Family Values would have got both the rich acclaim and enormous box office it merited. A deliciously playful sequel, it’s 94 minutes of tightly put together comedy, with a bunch of performers that come close to defining ‘perfectly cast’. Christina Ricci, clinging to a fence as she’s threatened with the Harmony Hut, remains a comedy highlight of 1990s cinema.

But the film didn’t really hit. As much as it was liked, its box office was less than half of the original. It was released the week before Mrs Doubtfire in the Us, and it was the latter that become the widely seen family comedy of Christmas 1993. Addams Family Values would do okay at best, but

Reeker (2005) review

Reviewed by Chris Wright, MoreHorror.com

Reeker (2005)

Directed By: Dave Payne

Written By: Dave Payne

Starring: Devon Gummersall (Jack), Derek Richardson (Nelson), Tina Illman (Gretchen), Scott Whyte (Trip), Arielle Kebbel (Cookie), Michael Ironside (Henry), Eric Mabius (Radford), Marcia Strassman (Rose), David Hadinger (The Reeker), Les Jankey (Trucker), Carole Ruggier (Mom), Paul Butcher (Kid), Stephen Ziotnick (Officer Ben), Christopher Boyer (Officer Mansfield), Wesley Thompson (Officer Taylor)

Reeker” is an interesting take on a slasher film. The decade of the slasher has long past so most films that take on that sub-genre are repetitions of previous movies that many of us have long watched. I was impressed that “Reeker” took a formula that has been beaten to death and added a nice twist to it.

Reeker” centers on a bunch of young adults stranded in a desert rest stop only to be soon attacked by a mysterious creature while they are all having visions.

Creature of Darkness to Finally See the Light of Day

Is it just my imagination or have we been reporting on the Devon Sawa monster movie Creature of Darkness for two years now? Sure feels like it has taken its sweet time. At long last, the monster movie funded by a Powerball lottery winner (true story!) will finally begin stalking DVD shelves this April.

"Whatever happened to" Devon Sawa (Final Destination, Idle Hands, Extreme Ops) stars as a young man plagued by nightmares in which he repeatedly sees himself and his friends being slaughtered by a supernatural monster known as The Catcher. His friends, who have apparently never seen a horror movie in their lives, attempt to cure him of his recurring nightmares by taking him to a secluded forest where his dreams indicate The Catcher lurks. Guess what dream monster turns out to be very much a reality?

Writer-director Mark Stouffer's Creature of Darkness co-stars the likes of Latin singing sensation Fernanda Romero,

10 Examples Of A Pulse In The Modern Slasher

10 Examples Of A Pulse In The Modern Slasher
After the 80's passed it seemed that - for the most part - the slasher craze had finally come to a rest. Successful franchises like Halloween, Nightmare On Elm Street and Friday The 13th had been siphoned beyond emptiness and any intrigue the sub genre once offered appeared dead and buried. Then 1996 rolled around and Wes Craven, Kevin Williamson and Neve Campbell reminded us that good directing, storytelling, and acting is alive and well with the surprise hit Scream.

The next couple of years provided a massive batch of 'fresh' copycats and a handful of Scream sequels. Very few of any are remotely near noteworthy (quick nod to I Know What You Did Last Summer in order to avoid the onslaught of negative commentary from the obsessed Sarah Michelle Gellar fans out there J ), though Scream 2 remains a memorable franchise installment based solely on the unexpected axing of series favorite Randy (Jamie Kennedy) Meeks.

Lbcc 09: Review of Thomas Jane's Dark Country

Year: 2009

Directors: Thomas Jane

Writers: Tab Murphy

IMDb: link

Trailer: link

Review by: Hal MacDermot

Rating: 6.7 out of 10

[Editor's note: From coverage at the Long Beach Comic Con, we were also supposed to have a review for Give 'em Hell, Malone but the distributor yanked it at the last moment. Replace this sentence with me cursing them out.]

A film noir in 3D and Sony is releasing it straight to DVD in 2D? “Excuse me?” I hear you exclaim,”Are they out of their highly strung executive minds? What are they thinking?” More on this point anon, but now to the main feature. Thomas Jane’s directorial debut is definitely a must for fans of film noir, but I have to warn you that the plot’s not as strong as the visuals. It should stand up in 2D, the shadows will remain, but it can’t be as good as the 3D. Dark Country is a bit like a very long and wonderfully lit episode of the Twilight Zone. Stylistically it also reminded me of the desert surreal horror world of Dave Payne’s No Man’s Land: the Rise of the Reeker (2008). Wait,

First trailer for Dark House

The first trailer for Dark House, starring Re-animator's Jeffrey Combs, has arrived.

The Uninvited (Film Review)

In the mini-pantheon of Asian-horror remakes, The Uninvited winds up being more welcome than last year’s underachieving triumvirate of One Missed Call, The Eye and Shutter. Well-crafted enough that it doesn’t feel like an opportunistic knockoff, it suffers less in comparison to the Korean original, A Tale Of Two Sisters, than from the fact that the story ingredients of both are familiar from numerous past genre films.

I should pause here to note that I wasn’t one of the many who admired Kim Ji-woon’s Sisters; where plenty of viewers saw a subtle suspenser that slowly but surely ratcheted up the creep factor, I saw an enervatingly paced film where not much happened—certainly not much that hadn’t been done before and better in other domestic-fear fare from Korea and Japan—and “paid off” in a show-offy, incoherent series of revelations. The Uninvited (which, to confuse things,

Excl: One-on-One with Arielle Kebbel

It's easy to become a blathering mess around Arielle Kebbel. She's gorgeous. I'll just get that out of the way. But she's not unapproachable. She's the antithesis of that. Her smile sets you at ease, corrects the fuzziness growing in your head which allows you to speak understandable sentences. Luckily, coherent words give way to a pleasant fifteen minute interview when I meet Kebbel at a Westwood hotel. It's December and she's cramming in a bit of press for her supernatural thriller The Uninvited ( review ) before Hollywood breaks for the holidays. The film marks her fourth genre outing after Reeker , The Grudge 2 and next month's DVD release Freakdog . In The Uninvited , a remake of A Tale of Two Sisters , Kebbel is Alex, a young woman whose sibling, Anna (Emily...

No Man’s Land: The Rise of Reeker

According to Director David Payne, No Man’s Land: The Rise of the Reeker is neither a prequel, sequel, nor remake of his 2005 film Reeker, while at the same time, being all of those. If that defies logic enough for you, wait til you watch the movie! Rise of Reeker is a slasher film that barely features the slasher, and expects you to sit around listening to the illogical characters babble until someone gets stabbed. My mother always did say that patience is a virtue...but she did not sit through this movie.
