I thought that said Dracula's Window

Insecticidal (2005) - Insects get really big and do Insecticide to people including hot girls. There is a fair amount of nudity but it's not too spirited. I'll take it though. Two characters I really liked were the Chinese exchange student and the mean girl sorority girl who may or may not end up getting her just deserts! This wasn't a masterpiece and some of the dialogue is embarrassing but more effort than usual is put in to it even though they do drop really drop the ball here and there. For example, the lead actress clearly has a sexy librarian thing going on but never takes off her glasses! Come on man!

4/5

Let's see . . . in the last 36 hours I watched GHOUL - a Chiller Original, which was several cuts above most sci-fi originals.  Although it was made for TV, this movie had some pretty dark themes - infanticide, grave robbing, child molestation, and suicide.  Yet it managed to keep a fairly light tone most of the time, and the three young boys who were the main characters were quite likable.
Last night I watched a Midnight Releasing film called ANIMUS - a film student decides to make her documentary project about a haunted asylum, and once she and her friends are there various bad stuff happens and most of them wind up dead.  GRAVE ENCOUNTERS did it first and better.
  Then tonight, my daughters and I watched the classic version of THE EVIL DEAD.  Rachel turned to me during the final meltdown scene and said "Why is there oatmeal coming out of his head?"
"It's demonic undead oatmeal," was my reply.  She seemed satisfied with it.

"Friday the 13th" (1980)

Small | Large


Y'all have seen it, y'all know the drill - a group of unlucky teens hired to renovate a decrepit summer camp all meet grisly fates one by one on a fateful Friday night. Once this flick hit the drive-ins, American horror films were never the same again.

The original "Friday" is often dismissed as a mere "Halloween" ripoff but I've always liked "F13" better, it's way more violent and mean spirited. :D The formula is well worn and thoroughly run into the ground now, of course, but by 1980 standards this was pretty shocking stuff.

I've seen this a bunch of times over the years but have been wanting to watch it again ever since I visited the Boy Scout camp where it was filmed a few weeks back.

I watched one this morning called ENTITY.  A British reality TV crew is visiting a site in Russia where 34 bodies were found buried in the woods.  The case was never solved, so they bring along a psychic to see if she can get a take on what happened there.  She leads them a few klicks to an abandoned industrial facility where the Russian government, in the last days of the Soviet Union, did horrible experiments on people who showed any signs of psychic ability.

A bit slow moving, but with some nice parts here and there.  3/5

Hideous! (1997) - a couple of guys who collect biological oddities are both after the newest discovery, and they end up locked inside the castle that one of them lives in after the little critters come to life. Also locked in are several hot babes and a private detective. This is a favorite of mine, a really fun and cheesy B-movie directed by Charles Band. Characters have plenty of character, the humor is silly and entertaining, it's got it all. 4/5.

Headhunter (2005) - a guy goes to a headhunter and gets a job at an insurance firm. He works night shift, is the only person in the office, and he starts seeing ghosts. The girl who got him the job shows up and has sex with him, while the ghosts warn him that soon he'll be a ghost too unless he can unravel the mystery of what's going on. I kind of liked this, the plot was rather interesting and certainly different, the whole thing had a nice atmosphere of unease about it, and the headhunter babe was hot. 3.75/5.

MARQUIS (1989): Trapped in the Bastille, the Marquis de Sade nonetheless engages in political intrigue, writes S&M porn, and engages in long talks with his penis---which talks back. All of the characters wear animal masks while explicitly re-enacting some of the Maquis' greatest hits, making this intelligent French film into a disturbing cross between MEET THE FEEBLES and SALO. 4/5.

THE VAMPIRE (1957)
I caught this on TCM early this morning.
It's a B movie about a doctor who gets addicted to pills and turns into a Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde type of monster (with vampire tendencies).
I was surprised that a monster movie from the fifties was used as an allegory for drug addiction, but there it was. Thumbup 4/5

"Hell of the Living Dead" (1980)

Small | Large


In this uber-trashy Italian-made "Dawn of the Dead" wanna-be, a chemical accident causes an outbreak of flesh-eatin' Undead on the island of New Guinea (?). A commando team and a pair of TV journalists travel across the infested island to find the source of the infection. Much chomping, flesh ripping, and shooting ensues.

As with most Italian z-movies of this era, the story is full of holes, the dialogue is nonsensical, the dubbing is terrible, and the gore, while plentiful, is unconvincing (and occasionally hilarious, i.e. the climactic eyeball popping scene).

"Hell" had its moments but when it comes to Eurotrash grindhouse zombie flicks, "Nightmare City" beats this one hands down.

I watched a slasher from Midnight Releasing called THE HAYRIDE tonight.  It was OK, but not great.  THey spent more time on character development and setup than they did on the actual story.

Agreed, but Nightmare City has more class and had obviously more lira to spend. I'd place Nightmare City in the upper half of Eurotrash goodness. Hell of the Living Dead is scratching the bottom of the barrel, with it's stock footage, sloppy editing and what not. It's like the makers used spit and gum to prevent HOTLD from falling apart  TeddyR
Both are fun for sure and I'm glad to own them on DVD.

Belphegor: Phantom of the Louvre (2001) - some people at the Louvre in Paris find an old mummy that was sitting in storage for years. They start examining it and sure enough its evil spirit comes to life and eventually possesses a girl (the totally hot Sophie Marceau). It's up to her boyfriend to save her, with the help of a grizzled old ex-detective. I really liked this, good suspense and the characters were pretty likable. The special effects were cheesy, like something out of a Stephen Sommers Mummy movie, which didn't fit the (somewhat) serious tone of the film, but oh well. Ah heck the whole thing was cheesy but it worked for me Smile 4/5.

Seed of Chucky (2004) - Chucky and Tiffany are in Hollywood, everyone thinks they're just dolls but of course they're really alive. They find out they've got a kid, they go around killing people in the usual comedic manner, and for some reason they get Jennifer Tilly pregnant. I don't know, this didn't really do much for me. I can see how they were trying to come up with a new direction or something for this, but the whole shtick's just getting a little old at this point. 2.75/5.

Oh yeah, the constant stock footage interruptions were killin' me after a while, hahaha. I was like "is this a zombie movie or a nature documentary?"  TeddyR

The Woman Eater (1958) - A Scientist attends a voodoo ceremony and sees a tree that eats womans. Intrigued by this he somehow brings it back to England wherein the little cast of characters we meet have lives while this guy does mad science. The tree is ridiculous looking and it seems like you could break out of its grip pretty easily. British movies don't quite go all out the way Hollywood does like a guy gets hit with a bullet at the top of the stairs and instead of falling down the stairs or over the railing he just dies. There are several pretty girls in the movie, a few of which the tree eats. The main one is blonde and almost makes it a war movie with her gunboat build. decent and only 65 mins. 3.5/5

THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS (2012) -
Small | Large


Derivitive, dumb and surprisingly boring. 1/10


LAWLESS (2012)
Small | Large

Backwoods moonshiners vs. corrupt city cop in the Prohibition era.  Basically it's 2 hours of Shia LeBeouf and Guy Pierce flailing around and slicking their hair back, and Tom Hardy muttering like an off-brand Sling Blade while refusing to deliver anything resembling a facial expression. As the leads' love interests, Jessica Chastain & Mia Wasikowska perform better but they're given nothing to actually do. The most potentially interesting person is a mysterious Fring-type Chicago boss (played by Gary Oldman), but he's only in the movie for about 90 seconds. Supposedly Nick Cave wrote the screenplay. They should've made his GLADIATOR sequel instead. 4/10

KILL LIST (2012)
Small | Large

This was a strange movie.  I'm still not sure whether I like it or not.

     THE FOG (2005)

     I found a copy of this remake for $1.99, and watched it last night. While I found it inferior to the original, it wasn't a terrtible film, IMO.
