Crop And Save
Harvest Lake (2016)
If they can't do better than this.................
This movie sucked. "Headless" was much better. In the first 45 - 50 minutes of this movie, nothing much happens in the way of horror. It's just a bunch of kids on a camp out talking about sex and drugs. During the films last 30 minutes, some kinds of mutant creatures show up, but since there is no explanation of what they were, why they were there, where they came from or what their purpose was, the movie makes little or no sense at all. This movie is yet just another excursion into the world of artsy-fartsy movies that nobody can figure out. The makers of the film should just stick to serial killers. At least that's something the real world can relate to......The only saving grace of this film is Ellie Church. I have loved her since the first time i saw her and i'm so glad they didn't kill her off in this movie like they did in the previous one. She is perfect "eye candy" and I can't get enough of her..but other than that, i wouldn't waste time watching this...there is no point, rhyme or reason to the story...we need another movie about a serial killer who has sex with severed heads....
Gore is good but the story is horrible
This movie had so much potential for gore fans but the story itself was not thought out very well....the acting is bad and the editing is even WORSE.....the sequence of events is IMPOSSIBLE to figure out.....it seems as though all of the scenes were just thrown together at random....one of the worst made movies i've ever seen....one minute its day time....then its night...then day again...you never can tell which day or night you are watching.....if it wasn't for the shock value, i would not own this movie.....it would take too long to type out all the stupidity in this movie...but at least it does have "controversy" going for it..and the director's cut is rare,so......
The Colossus of New York (1958)
Pretty good B flick
i was born in 1957 and have loved horror movies since i was a kid. Somehow, this movie never crossed my path in my childhood years. I never heard of or saw this movie until 1980. We had just gotten cable TV and this movie was shown in a horror movie marathon, including Earth vs. The Flying Saucers and The Day the Earth Stood Still. I thought this movie was above average but never considered it "great," however, over the years, it's kind of grown on me. I've always liked Ross Martin, who is the star of this movie. There are many movies i would consider better but for some reason, i still like watching this movie. I ended up buying the blu-ray version.
Part 3 is as stupid as part 2
This movie is totally stupid. A German man with a German accent playing the part of a cowboy who runs a prison out in the desert just does NOT WORK. He was perfect in the 1st one as a mad German doctor. That worked fine, but not in this movie. He and the circumstances just don't match. Also he is neurotic through the ENTIRE movie. He screams and yells and curses everybody from beginning to end. He shoots holes in the ceiling and walls of his prison, as well as the prisoners and even his own assistant. What kind of government would appoint someone as insane as he is to the position of a prison warden? HE is DANGEROUS, for gods sake...also that chick that plays his secretary would NOT - in real life - DRESS like she does....she looks like a porn star! This movie is just too ridiculous to be taken seriously. I didn't much appreciate Tom Six using this movie as an attempt to make a "movie star" out of himself either. Tom Six claims that this movie is the sickest one yet. I totally disagree. The special effects are not nearly as graphic and disturbing in this movie as they were in part 2.
While I am on the subject of part 2, I might point out too, that part 2 was just as ridiculous as this movie. 1., the movie was shot in black and white (in this day and age of HD why would anybody want to revert to b/w?), 2. The star of the show never said ONE WORD in the entire movie, 3. The star of the show wasn't even a DOCTOR. He was a damn parking garage attendant. What did he know about making a human centipede? He used common kitchen utensils and a STAPLE GUN, for gods sake. There is NO WAY a staple gun would hold human tissue together, the way he was using it. A totally STUPID idea. The movie was made purely for shock value, as, otherwise, it made no real sense.
The Bunny Game (2011)
Piece of crap movie
If you have been able to sit through "A Serbian Film" or "Murder-Set- Pieces", this movie will be a waste of time. You know, its strange that I have found many lists online of supposedly the "most disturbing movies of all time," and every single one of them include "The Bunny Game." To this day, i have not been able to figure out why. The story is relatively simple and common: a deranged trucker kidnaps a prostitute, chains her up in the back of his rig for the purpose of torturing her. The only problem is he never really DOES anything to her. The girl yells and screams all during the movie, yet not ONE DROP OF BLOOD is drawn. He puts a bag over her head and she briefly smothers. Big deal, he removes it and she doesn't die. He cuts all her hair off. Big deal. Not exactly "life-threatening." Unless i'm missing something, the one and only thing he does to her in the way of inflicting any pain is, he heats up the steel head of a hatchet with a blow torch, then briefly touches her skin with it. Of course, that hurts, but its very brief. I still don't understand why this girl screams hysterically throughout the movie. At the end of the movie, I found myself saying, "she's lucky she didn't come across Ted Bundy, then she would be dead." All in all, this movie is a total waste of time if you are expecting to see something "HORRIFIC." From the reviews and lists i've seen online, you'd think this is the most shocking movie of all time. I don't see it.
White Dog (1982)
A fair movie
This movie is pretty good, only it seemed more like a made-for-TV movie than something you'd expect to see in a theater. The acting is just mediocre at best. The only thing I can see that would keep this off of TV is the language. There are a few G.D.'s in it, which was not something you heard regularly on TV back in the early 80s. Also, it isn't as graphic as it should be, which also goes along with TV-movie standards from back then. Whenever someone is attacked and/or mauled, the victim is never shown - only the dog with blood all over it. I would say this movie is worth watching once or twice, if nothing else, for the historical aspect of it. It supposedly was banned for 25 years or so until Criterion was licensed to release it on DVD, in 2008. I was surprised to see Paul Bartel, of "Eating Raoul" fame, make a cameo in this movie, and, of course, Marshall Thompson, who played in countless 50's B horror movies.
À l'intérieur (2007)
This movie was unbelievable. I'm a huge blood and gore fan and when i first watched this movie i was totally blown away. I was caught totally off guard and was not expecting anything close to what happened in this movie. The story was great, the ending was fantastic. An ending i never thought of. I generally don't like foreign films, especially the ones that you have to read subtitles to for 2 hours. I saw this was a "Dimension Extreme" film and, from experience, I knew that these movies were pretty gory so I took a chance and boy was I impressed. The actors were all unknown to me and I don't recall seeing them since this movie. If you love horror movies with lots of gore, you owe it to yourself to see this one.
From Hell It Came (1957)
"How do you know it was Tabonga?" "Cuz it has a dagger in its heart!"
This also is one of my favorite childhood memories. I have searched for a decent copy of this movie for years, and now it is finally available at the Warner Brothers Archives. I bought a copy and its as close to as clear as blu-ray as you will ever fine. I have a 46" HDTV and the movie fills the entire screen and is crystal clear. After obtaining many mediocre copies over the years i really wasn't expecting too much til i bought the one from Warner Brothers. I was amazed and very pleased at the quality! Tobanga RULES! They should have made a sequel to it...like "Son of Tabonga" or something..there has never been a movie before or since this one came out!
Saw 3D (2010)
Final episode? I don't think so............
I think the fact that they billed this movie as "the final chapter" was just a marketing ploy to get more people to go see it. This can't be the end. For example, remember the SAW movie where the surgeon, Lynn Denlon, was assigned to keep Kramer alive? Well, Hoffman told Amanda that if she DIDN'T KILL Lynn Denlon, he would tell Kramer of her involvement in the loss of Gideon (whatever happened to Cecil? If anybody deserves to be in a trap, its HIM). WHY DID Hoffman WANT LYNN DENLON DEAD SO BADLY? That has never been revealed. (YET). Also, at the end of SAW VI, Amanda is crying and she bends down and looks through a keyhole and sees Denlon's little girl. Amanda says to her, through tears, (through the keyhole) that "don't trust the person who saves you." That hasn't been explained either. I also seem to recall Kramer telling Jill that he had "made a way out for her", yet Hoffman ends up killing her? That doesn't make sense either. What was Kramers "way out" for her? Nah, there's just too much left open for this to be the final movie. You watch and see if i'm wrong. As far as my review of this movie, I didn't think it was as good as SAW VI. The traps weren't as good, and in some cases, actually STUPID (the blind guy walking on wooden planks in mid-air - he had to get through the maze in 60 seconds - yeah right - that was a trap NOBODY could beat). Oh, and don't forget about Dr. Gordon's cameo. Here we have a man who was FORCED to cut off his own foot. Now they are telling us he's involved in the traps? I don't buy that. It has always amazed me how Kramer never has any problem finding someone who would go along with him. In Saw 3D, it is revealed that apparently, Hoffman and Dr. Gordon were working with Kramer at the same time. Why didn't their paths cross before now? (maybe that will be shown in SAW 8). Then at the end,two people with pigs heads jump out and inject Hoffman with the knockout drug. One is Dr. Gordon but they never revealed who the other pig-head person was. Another loose end. Oh well, maybe Saw 8 will be better, or if they want to make this one the final one, they can still continue the series by calling it something other than "SAW."
Just remember that EVERYTHING is driven by money. If Saw 3D turns out to really be popular, they WILL make more, believe me.
By the way,this movie is scheduled to be released on blu-ray and DVD on 01/25/11. It will be released in both the 2D version and 3D, but i'm wondering if we will have to have a 3DTV and 3D Blu-Ray player in order to see it in 3D, or if it will be marketed like "My Bloody Valentine 3D" and come with green and red lens glasses?
**** UPDATE 1/26/11 **** I just got the blu ray of this movie and my 3D question is now answered - There is a sticker on front of the case that says, "Requires a 3DHDTV - NO GLASSES INCLUDED." D'oh! Oh well, at least i can see it in HD.
One of the funniest movies I have ever seen!
The first 30 minutes or so of this movie was priceless. The Obnoxiousness of Wade is classic. If you haven't seen this yet and are in the mood to laugh hard, you gotta see this one. Sure, its low budget and you can tell it but it is so funny that after you start watching, you forget all about the low budget quality. Mojo Nixon does a great job of playing Preacher Man Bob, and there are even some Mojo Nixon songs during the movie.(Why does IMDb require reviewers to write 10 lines of text? I would think the less text entered, the more room they would have on their server. It's kind of annoying. That's why I'm rambling now. I made my point about the movie in the first five lines.) Anyway, yes you owe it to yourself to see this movie at least once. After you do, you will be inviting your friends over to watch it!
ZOTZ! Now available on DVD
I was 5 years old when this movie hit the theater but i remember seeing in in the mid to late 60s. Kids back then treated this movie as if it were a major Disney production. Even as young as we were, we still recognized it as being a well-made movie. Not a cheap B movie with hokey effects, although now it seems more campy. The real star of the show was the ZOTZ coin. All us kids wanted one. When this movie initially was released, free replica ZOTZ coins were given to the first few hundred people that saw the movie. I was lucky enough to come across one on Ebay once. I have it hanging on my wall with all my other movie replica stuff. Anyway, ZOTZ finally made it to DVD. It was released October 20, 2009 as a part of a 5-disc William Castle set. If you have Netflix you can order each individual disc. The set includes: 13 Frightened Girls / 13 Ghosts / Homicidal / Strait-Jacket / The Old Dark House / Mr. Sardonicus / The Tingler / Zotz!). You can get it on Amazon.com or Ebay...just about anywhere.
I just got through watching this and it was the most worthless waste of time I've ever spent. I remember seeing the commercial on TV when this movie came out. I didn't get suckered in to the theater to see this, but I gave into temptation and rented it on blu ray today and I hate that I did. This is one of those movies that after you see it, you've forgotten about it 5 minutes later. The movie was totally pointless and meaningless, kind of like Ghostbusters except with zombies. The movie starred some Jewish kid that nobody ever heard of, with veterans Bill Murray and Woody Harellson thrown in for posterity's sake (no doubt, just a marketing ploy to sell the movie to an older audience). To make things worse, Netflix never has it available and i went to Blockbuster 3 days in a row before I finally tracked down a copy. I'm almost downright MAD, this movie is so lame. I think if I hadn't spent so much time trying to find a blu-ray rental copy of it, I wouldn't have even watched the whole thing. At least it was only an hour and 22 minutes long, so I didn't really have to suffer THAT long. They should have thrown in a few Mutant Nija Turtles - it wouldn't have made much difference to the quality of the movie. Totally stupid and pointless. If I could give it less than 1 star, I would.
I don't get it
I find it hard to understand how a horror movie could be equated with a bunch of frogs. Frogs aren't scary. They don't have teeth or claws. What's the worst they could do? Croak all night and hop around all over the place. How could this make for a good horror movie? I would say this director lacked any sense of horror. I could have made a better movie than this and I'm not even a director. Check out "Food of the Gods". Now THAT is scary. It's full of giant mosquitos, giant rats, giant worms and snakes, even a giant chicken,all of which could mangle a human being. But FROGS? A pitiful subject for a horror movie. (this line added simply to fill in enough space so my comments would post. When are they going to change this stupid requirement?)
The Phantom of the Opera (1962)
I never have been a big Hammer film fan but I have to say that the Hammer version of Phantom of the Opera is absolutely the best I've ever seen. The story is great, the acting is great and there are a few really terrifying moments. I even almost shed a tear at the end. Poor professor Petrie! Anyway, if you haven't seen this, you owe it to yourself to check it out. I've been looking for the DVD release for years and it finally got here, although I doubt you can get it by itself. The only one i've seen so far is a Hammer double feature, the other movie being Paranoiac, starring Oliver Reed and Janette Scott. This is Hammer at its best!
Cool is the rule but...sometimes BAD is BAD
I agree with the first reviewer. The real Ed Gein was nothing like the one depicted in this movie. In the first place, the real Ed Gein was NOT aggressive. He was a shy, quiet man. The guy in this movie got mad real easy and when he got mad, he LUNGED at people. There was a scene where he went to the graveyard to dig up a body and the night watchman was there. All it took was a couple of lines and Ed got mad and killed him. That did NOT happen in real life. There are a lot of serial killer movies being made these days and quite frankly, NONE of them are accurate. Either the makers of the movie are lazy and don't research the real story enough, or they are calling themselves "spicing up" the movie for interest purposes. Whatever the reason, they just kill the story by adding a bunch of made up stuff. I think the worst one i've seen to date was the BTK Killer by Uli Lommel. Man talk about a waste of celluloid. That movie was so bad i will deliberately AVOID any Uli Lommel movies in the future.
Diary of the Dead (2007)
I am so sick and tired of watching movies shot with hand-held camcorders! Why do people continue to make these kinds of movies? The film constantly jerks around so much it gives me car sickness! First there was Blair Witch. Then the magnificently lame Cloverfield. Now, here we go again. I've always been an avid zombie fan since the original Night Of The Living Dead. Having seen all of George Romero's zombie movies, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead and Land of the Dead, I was really expecting something fantastic in Diary of the Dead. Wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!! It takes a good half our before any zombie action takes place, then when it does, the special effects are cheesy. In some cases, people shot zombies and the viewer isn't even allowed to see the impact of the bullets! That's very "convenient" for the maker of the film. This way, he doesn't have to spend much money on special effects! Take it from me, if you aren't into watching home movies made with a camcorder,don't waste your time seeing this. You will be as upset as I am. I can't believe George Romero would stoop so low as to make a movie this lame. I've always had a lot of respect for his talent. Now, I'm not so sure. If I didn't know any better, I would say this was directed by Ed Wood. Or, at least, a rookie director's first movie.
need help with a movie title
I just got through watching the new 101 Dalmations DVD. I haven't seen this movie since I was a kid, watching it at the movie theater. It's a very cute movie but i'm confused about something. It wasn't what I remembered it to be. For some reason, I had pictured all these Dalmations inside a fire station. I could see all the red fire hats and all the dogs riding the fire engine. Obviously I must have this movie mixed up with something else. Does anybody out there remember the movie I'm describing? I could have sworn it was 101 Dalmations but there was nothing even remotely close to a fire station. What movie am I confusing this with?
Hostel might be the most upsetting film I've ever seen. The director was amazed when the film received an R-rating instead of NC-17 and I agree. The film starts innocently enough, with two American backpackers living it up in Amsterdam with their Icelandic traveling buddy. But when their quest for sex and debauchery takes them to a mysterious hostel in a quiet Eastern European town, the guys find themselves in a world more disturbing than anything they could have imagined. The scenes of torture in this film are absolutely brutal and even fans of conventional horror may find themselves flinching and squirming at times. But just when you begin to think you're watching nothing more than a $4.5 million snuff film, the film changes direction and shifts into high gear. Hostel eschews the modern thriller convention of "the more plot twists, the better" and simply goes right for the jugular and the gut. The film certainly hits both targets, and it doesn't let go until the very end. Famed Japanese horror director Takashi Miike makes a cameo appearance (which is not surprising as all his movies are full of graphically horrible scenes as does this movie). Quentin Tarantino is credited as an executive producer but I think a lot of up and coming new directors use his name as a spring-board to get their movies noticed. These days it seems that "Quentin Tarantino presents" EVERYTHING. Anyway if you are a graphic horror movie fan and haven't seen this, you owe it to yourself to check it out. I just hope this doesn't turn out to be a "fluke" on the part of Eli Roth. If he can make more movies as well as this one, he'll be a superstar eventually. This great movie doesn't end with just the credits either. It is capped off by the line, "I get a lot of money for you...and that make you MY bitch!"
The Boogens (1981)
This is the lamest movie I ever saw. The only time you ever see the monster is at the end and it doesn't even move. It just sits in one spot while the people kill it. The only thing worse than the movie itself is the title. "The BOOGENS". Wonder how long it took them to dream up that one? Sounds like something that comes out of your nose rather than a type of monster. I gave this a 1 out of 10, simply because ZERO is not an accepted character. The 80's were filled with worthless movies like this one with the sole purpose of making money, and I doubt this one made much at all. You'd think that if someone is going to go through the trouble of making a move AT ALL, they would at least try to make it more believable, or at least let it make sense.
Iron Man (1966)
I managed to find a copy of the original '66 Marvel superheros DVD set featuring Iron Man, Captian America, The Increidible Hulk, The Mighty Thor and Sub-Mariner, Prince Namor of the Deep. It's awesome. Talk about bringing back memories. I was 9 years old when this series first aired on TV. It's true there is very little animation but I kinda like the fact that they tried to make it like the comic books. I think my all time favorite though is the 1967 Spiderman series. When I was a kid i NEVER missed that on Saturday morning. The cheesy made it better to me! If you are a nostalgic person like me, it would be worth your while to find a set of this series. I don't think i've seen it on TV since the 60's.
Just like the previous reviewer said, this episode affected me permanently after seeing it. I was 8 years old and I never forgot Numa being put on top of the player piano, which would start by itself. Most episodes of The Alfred Hitchcok Hour were about cops and robbers, which was very boring to a child of 8 years old. This is one of the final episodes and I seriously doubt this will ever be released to the public due to political incorrectness. The people responsible for banning "Amos 'n' Andy" and "Walt Disney's Song of the South" would no doubt prevent the release of this episode too, for the same reasons. I too found a DVD-R copy of it on the Internet. If you haven't seen this and are into movies/TV shows dealing with the supernatural, I strongly recommend getting this. The one i have is about a 6 to 7 in quality, on a scale of 1 to 10, but the impact is still there. The immortal music of Bernard Herrmann makes it even the more creepy. Hitchcock was the truly the "master of horror" and his ability shines through with this brilliant episode.
When I first saw this movie, I was around 9 or 10 years old. This is William Castle's first "official" horror movie. There are no monsters in it and no killers, at least no "graphic" killings, but for some reason, this has always been one of my favorite William Castle movies. I remember watching it real late at night. I think the intro and the end credits were somehow "scary" to me. At the end, as the credits are rolling, there is a cartoon of a "macabre" parade walking by. I still remember that to this day. One of the cartoon characters is carrying his own head. I'm 50 years old now and it's funny how a person can remember insignificant stuff like that over the years. I sure wish this movie would be released on DVD. I would love to see it in crystal clarity like the other William Castle movies that have been released on DVD.
Shallow Ground (2004)
What's the point?
This movie made no sense whatsoever. What was the point? People getting killed constantly and blood all over the place. What's the point? Why was all this weird stuff happening? Blood coming down the walls, blood coming down windows, blood inside a school bus. Blood, Blood, Blood. Again, what was the point? Just another stupid, pointless movie made by uninspired would-be directors and writers. Why can't people make good movies like the old days? I think the problem is everything has been done and nobody these days is inspired enough to create anything decent. All they do is either make up pointless movies like this one or remake something from the past. Are movies ever going to get good again?
Masters of Horror: Imprint (2006)
As the above reviewer stated, upon watching this movie you can easily tell why it was banned from TV. There is a torture scene that makes you want to turn your head and yes, the ending is especially gross. If you are a fan of gore movies, I would highly recommend this one. Takashi Miike seems to have a great eye for this kinda stuff. I would recommend a couple other of his movies too if you haven't seen them. "Itchi, The Killer" and "Audition". This guy rules when it comes to gore. Actually the Masters of Horror series is a pretty good series, for something "new". John Carpenter wrote an episode of Masters of Horror called "Cigarette Burns", and on the DVD, he says that all the directors of "Master of Horror" got together for a cheese-ball party and he felt that the relationship between the directors and the things that went on were "unhealthy", whatever that means. He said, "that's all i'm gonna say about it". Not sure what he meant there but, well....I guess it's up to your imagination.
B.T.K. Killer (2005)
What's up with this guy?
Somebody needs to send this Uli Lommel guy back to MOVIE SCHOOL. Who ever told him HE knew HOW to make a movie? Can just ANYBODY make movies these days? In the past, it always REQUIRED TALENT before someone could make a movie. After watching this lame BTK movie and the others he's made, it seems blatantly obvious that the poor guy has about as much business making movies as I DO. Actually I think even I could make better movies than Uli LAME-ALL. This movie has absolutely NOTHING to do with the BTK Killer, other than the names of the victims and the killer. THAT'S IT. Where did this guy get the big idea that BTK killed people with rodents and all the other preposterous crap that's in the movie? This is a classic example of someone trying to lure people into watching their movie based on the term "BTK" because of the fame it has achieved. Absolutely pitiful. The only serial killer movie I would consider WORSE is that lame "DAHMER" movie. That kid smoked so many cigarettes it made me nauseous. Whoever made that one needs to be shot.
