I know a lot of people crave food a lot of the time, but recently I’ve been wanting to watch horror movies.
So, I’m not entirely sure how this will work out, but I’ve bought a lot of horror movies, most of which have been made and released after 2000, and each of my Movie Fest posts, will include 3 of these horror movies- I’m open to any other horror movie suggestions, I will go and see if I can buy the movie and write about it, or even if you want to just recommend a horror movie you think is awesome, or particularly bad.
On the Cat’s horror movie fest (in no particular order) I should be reviewing.
- The Grudge (Japanese Version)
- The Grudge 2 (Japanese Version)
- The Ring (Japanese Version)
- The Ring 2 (Japanese Version)
- Quarantine 2
- Carrie (2013)
- Silent Hill
- We are what we are
- Warm Bodies
- The Cabin in the Woods
- The Conjuring
- The Descent
- Insidious 2
I am not doing any of Paranormal Activity’s, Saw’s or Screams, just by the time I get though the whole 1-1000 of those movies and written about them I may actually asked to be possessed just to get away from them.
Part one’s 3 movies are-
Carrie, Warm Bodies and Sinister
Carrie (2013, remake)-
I’ve been told that the 1970’s version is better
This movie is based on the Stephen King novel- Carrie- The story tells of a shy girl trying to get though school with also a religious mother waiting for her at home. Stephen King seems to have accessed every bullying victims dark imagination, given Carrie telekinesis and set her loose on her bullies. It’s one movie in two parts, the build up where the bullies have the floor, then of course typical American story, Prom happens that’s when everything changes Carrie seems as if she is possessed and practically burns the town down.
But really I don’t see this as a Horror movie; it was more like a revenge chick flick with supernatural powers. It’s a horror movie, without the ghosts or hauntings we seem to have a lot of today, I’d also like to see who finds this a horror movie, I think to some degree it’s more of a reality hit, those who have been bullied a lot have probably wished that they had some sort of power to get back at their predators. The psychological horror is that there are people out there who actually think like that, who are one step away from wanting to kill those who humiliate them.
Favourite part of the movie– when Carrie has the leader bully trapped in the car and fires it into the gas station.
+ The end scene where one of the girls has a nightmare of giving birth (She is pregnant) and a bloody hand burst through her abdomen
Worst Part of the Movie- The fact that the head teacher couldn’t say the word Period or Sanitary products (I mean come on).
+I watch Castle, now season 6, there is an episode what references this movie and I was thinking of that episode at certain points through out this.
Horror Movie rating
Overall movie rating-
Warm Bodies (2013)
I wasn’t sure if this actually is a horror movie but if you Google Horror Movies from 2013 this comes up so, I gave it a watch.
There is a reason; there has never been a Zombie, Human romance horror story. I think it is actually in someway a good, original idea but some of the awkwardness proves, It is wrong and I think this movie shows that. Sure there is no necrophilia (No, zombie human sexy time) but the awkwardness of the human zombie relationship, just with the girl talking to the zombie guy and the guy falling in love with her, for me made this a horror film.
The movie shows two types of zombies. “Corpses,” Which are the sort of friendly zombies- Warm Bodies has done what Twilight did for Vampires. “Corpses,” Are the zombies which wander about not really able to think but the whole Resident Evil Zombie where the Zombies will hunt down every last shred of civilization doesn’t apply. “Boneys,” Are more like the traditional zombie where they will kill anything with a heartbeat, although really they look more like animated skeletons and in this movie they become the main villain.
The Humans and the Corpses join together to fight the boneys! Then we have a happily ever after. Yeah, apparently, the love conquers all thing now makes it into a, “Horror,” movie…
Don’t believe Google when they say this is a Horror Movie, if this is a Horror movie they should put the Twilight Films on the relevant lists too. It is more of a twisted romance.
Best Part of the Film- I’ll admit the zombie guy, (“R,” As he ends up calling himself) voice over/commentary was pretty funny.
Worst Part- One part what annoyed me. Spoiler– R changes back, from zombie to something more living. He get’s shot in the chest. The girl (who is in love with him and he is in love her) Is more bothered about the fact he is bleeding so it shows the fact he is alive. He’s bleeding from being shot in the freaking chest, he might not be alive for freaking long if you don’t help him!!!
Horror movie rating-
Overall movie rating-
2/5 stars (It had some good special effects)
Now this is what I call a horror movie. Anything that gets me hinking, “I might sleep tonight with the light on,”
Deserves an award.
I actually knocked this movie down a few expectations when it started, realizing it was one of those, humans move into a new house. I thought, chances were the house would be haunted, ghosts or demons will try to destroy humans lives, the mother would panic for her children while daddy boy got all macho and try to take on the world of the supernatural. Of course they would bring in some ghost hunters and one of them would have issues at first not believing in that kind of stuff blah blah.
But I was wrong.
Ok the parents still took up their roles. And I thought it was funny that the boy in this movie said he got bullied at his last school because his dad for a living goes around writing about real life crime. It’s funny because this kids hair is actually longer than some girl’s hair I know, so maybe he should factor that into why he is being bullied. The family move into a house where the family before them got hung outside on a tree, accept the youngest daughter who disappeared. The writer dad (Ellison) and the deputy of the town soon discover that the family who got hung had moved to that house but the house they had lived in before a family was killed too, same pattern a kid had disappeared and a pattern like that goes back to the 1960’s (Family moves into a new house but the previous family in the house they have just moved from would have been murdered but a child would have disappeared).
The boy has night terrors and ends up in all sorts of places (I mean it, he ends up in a box almost doing an exorcist style twist coming out of it screaming) Then there is the little girl who draws on walls. The father researches for his books finds all these spooky film reels which shows the murders happen and he soon discovers a creepy figure in all of them
Best Part of the film– Anytime Bughuul or the creepy children appeared.
+ Ellison falls through the loft; he mentions to the deputy that he heard footsteps. The deputy put it down to squirrels.
Worst part of the film– I can’t really remember any truly bad bits.
