Ginger Snaps

Hello my goremates of the world!

Yes, I know I said I would write a new entry the day after I wrote The Evil Dead entry. But I've been kind of busy, so yeah. But here it goes:

The Ginger Snaps trilogy was... cool. A good sequel. They don't really have very much in common except the two main characters being sisters and werewolf. There's some gore, wolfs and thrill. The actresses' plays their parts well and the it's well made.

I had a good laugh. The werewolf's isn't the best I've seen. But they're ok. The audio in the films was good. The snarling and growling were nice.

So yeah, this was a short one. But I Would recommend them.

Have a nice one.

Long time no blogging

Hello Freaks!

It's been a while since I blogged about the Horrorfest movies. As my list grows often, I will give you a little taste of all the series that I have listed so far. I know this works out to be a lot of films, but bear with me. I'll try make it short and informative.
Ok, here we go!

The Evil Dead:

These three films are brilliant; and have gore, funny concept and bad acting. The bad acting fits the films very well. The make-up looks completely fake and the make-up FX seriously suck, but then again, the first film is from 1981 after all. The second film, Dead By Dawn, was seriously fun, I enjoyed this one so so much. Gore, monsters, evil trees and zombies. Can it get much better than that? I think not. Just as the first film the acting and make-up FX was bad, but all the monsters and gore make it worth watching. That and it's super fun.
Evil Dead Army of Darkness is the third and last film in this series, I was disappointed. Little gore and a little bit boring at times but was good fun. But I wanted more, or expected more anyway. The make-up FX was better though.
As I said earlier, they're brilliant all though the last film didn't reach my expectation. The whole thing was bad quality, but that's exactly why it's so fun to watch.

I'll do another review to morrow.

After Dark Horrorfest



this is a collection of eight films.

Borderline was not very good. It did not live up to the cover at all. as they say, do not judge the book by its cover, this include films. The acting could have been better, but it did not suck. There was little to no gore, the little you got to see was blood on t-shirts or on bandages, and some short scenes now and then, but that was about it. The plot could have worked very well as it is based on true events, I think they maybe could have done something more, the film is just slow and I got bored.
I would put this one under the action sjangra though.

When it comes to Crazy Eights, it start with a good plot, it could have turned out as a pretty good film. It's about a group of six grownups, doing something for some friend who just recently died. But after ten minutes it got all messy. The film starts to go back and fourth in time and in and out of dream and reality. Three of the actors did a good job, they made it believable. the rest of them was not really worth paying any attention to. Any way, if you like good ol' creepy asylums, it's worth seeing. The goryness of the film was not over the top, but I guess it did not need any more. there where one thing that did not suit the film, which I think have been used in too many movies of lately, and i think they should have kept it to the little girl in stead of what they ended with. I Would recommend this movie.

Deaths of Ian Stone is in a way a love story. It starts random with a hokey game. Then it starts jumping in time. the actors were quite ok. It gives you the thinking that you want to watch it. There not that much gore in this film, but allot of torturing, which gives this movie a lift. All in all i liked this one, and would recommend it to the people interested in mystical things.

Now Lake Dead was a seriously crappy film. The acting was horrible, the concept could have worked if had been re-written. Little to no gore. I do not really know what else I can say about it. I'll call this fourteen spook.

Now Mulberry Street was kinda fun. Its about a virus, I am afraid I'll spoil too much if i go on in what happens. It's sort of 28 days later. The acting was not bad at all. A fun film to watch. Go fore it. The rats are coming.

Nightmare Man... Oh god... that was crap. acting was bad, concept could have been cool, but no. I ended sketching monsters in my sketchbook. A cursed mask follows a woman... and that is about it.. really.

Tooth and Nail seemed like a pretty good movie. The concept is that the world has ran out of gas, things just stopped up. Apparently there is no natural way of making energy, wind mills and waterfall should maybe have been thought about, but if I put that away, the movie is fair enough. A deserted world, I love the steampunkishness about this film although the movie was abit slow. The acting part was ok, could have been better, could have been worse. Goriness? There was some nice hatching scenes, and there was blood.

Unearthed could have been a good story, Indian mythology, spooky creatures/monsters... But if it wasn't to alien like, The "monster" in this movie looks like the Alien himself, the same abilities as him even. But, if we put that to the side, the film has a nice visual look. The acting was mjeh, ok I guess. It was a little bit slow at times, but when the action started, it was nice and gory. So if you like Indian myths and creatures. this is the movie for you.

Go a head and comment if you dissagree.

The Beginning

Why hello my fellow horror geeks.

I've been thinking about making a horror blog for some time now. I've seen a lot of horror/gore movies lately and thought it was time I share my opinions with the rest of you.
The reason with this blog is to give people, like your self, a chance to find new films with a decent review. I will judje them by quality, gorieness, acting and concept. Many might disagree with me at some point, so feel free to comment and let me know what you think. If you have some films you want to shear, go a head and post it in the comment box.

So now that I have introduced the blog, its time to list the films I've seen so far. I have tones more, but they're at my mums house, so I'll have to add them later.
