Horror movies have been on a legitimate upswing over the last few years, a new, revolutionary found-footage fad has begun to take over, with most films finding success (until The Devil Inside ruined all the fun). It’s only proper that a film comes every now and then that reminds viewers that some horror films should be relegated to the writer’s room and no further. Unfortunately, Chernobyl Diaries quickly becomes one of those films due to a poor effort on all fronts.
Cabin in the Woods mixes all the best pieces of horror lore and then adds in a high degree of unpredictability and sure craziness to create one of the most unique and entertaining film experiences of the year.
I have to start this review in a very embarrassing way: I didn’t watched John Carpenter’s The Thing until after watching the prequel of the same name.
I am ashamed.
That being said, I am kind of glad that I watched it that way because I wasn’t as disappointed with the 2011 version as many people who had watched and loved the 1982 version first were.
The main problem with the prequel is that it has to live up to the ridiculously high standard that Carpenter’s masterpiece set back in 1982 and that isn’t fair to do to any movie. As a standalone film, The Thing prequel (TTP) is an enjoyable movie that doesn’t redefine the creature-horror genre, but is fun nonetheless.
When compared to it’s big brother, however, is when all of the blemishes come to the forefront. Read More…
One of the cornerstones of the 1950s emergence of the monster movie was The Thing. The film was remade in 1982 by John Carpenter, and is widely seen as one of the best films of the era. As is customary in Hollywood over the last ten years, The Thing has now been re-booted as a prequel to the Carpenter classic for a modern audience in a mediocre adaptation. Although it provides more than a few scares and thrills, The Thing fails to produce anything that will stick for more than one viewing. Read More…
The third installment of the Paranormal Activity series is heading to theaters, and the trailer has hit the web! Explore the origins of the haunting that plagued the characters in the first and second film in this new look at the saga made by the director of Catfish. Check out the trailer and check out the crew’s take after the break!
The first Paranormal Activity was one of the most successful movies in history, making millions of dollars with a five, figure budget. Usually, a movie like that attempts to create a sequel, only to watch it completely fall apart (like The Blair Witch Project’s terrible sequel and box office bomb). However, surprisingly, this is not the case with Paranormal Activity 2. Much scarier and better than the first, Paranormal Activity 2 will be a great experience for fans of the first movie and new fans due to it’s thrills, laughs, and pure fun.
Continuing the interesting and seemingly never-ending plot line seen in Saw III, Saw IV was another one of the series that focused on plot line rather than the gore and violence that was seen in the first three movies. Here are the traps from Saw IV:
Saw III is where the series took a turn for the better…or worse. Expanding the storyline seen in the first two to add multiple plot lines, the reviews for Saw III were mixed, but it is the highest grossing home release of the entire saga. You should know the drill, so here are the traps (Click on the link for the YouTube Video):
