Why? Why did I watch this? I think I’ve learned my lesson. And I think it’s going to be really, really hard to hit 31 new-movie watches next Halloween. Unless I hold off on horror until next year or I dig up dreck like this. Neither is a very appealing option.
The toughest thing about this film is keeping it in my head the lead is Anthony Hopkins. He looks nothing like himself (he’s pretty young), and my head would randomly attach someone else to him. Otherwise, it’s pretty fun. Kinda creepy. Anthony Hopkins is a struggling magician who “discovers” a gimmick to send his act […]
Anthologies rule. Unless they don’t. It’s really not that hard of a thing to do. Especially when there are multiple directors for the segments. They do their thing. Add a wraparound story. Voila! Here we have a theatre that one person at a time gets a ticket, goes to an empty theatre and watches a […]
To celebrate passing 31 new horror film viewings for Octoberween (which I’ve never done before, not even including rewatches), I treated myself to a double feature of this and Terrifier. DAMN this movie is good. And only underlines why the TV show is meh. The stories, the gobo lighting, the MUSIC!, the direction. Everything is […]
Well, it looks like this is going to be one of my Halloween go-tos. I was pretty happy with this one when I saw it for the first time last year. Like it even more now. David Howard Thornton MAKES this film. If there’s any doubt about it, watch All Hallow’s Eve and compare the […]
Another film I’ve been intentionally avoiding. I thought this would be a crap direct-to-video cheapie. The fact that its so popular reinforced that idea. Was I wrong! I really, really liked this film. So much so, I’m actually thinking I might give it a rewatch before watching the sequels. This film made me a little […]
I had a postcard of the poster on my wall for the longest time. Not sure where I got it (I think it was a giveaway at the theatre) and also not sure why I’ve never seen it. I tried to watch it last year and turned it off about 15 minutes in. I love […]
While I can’t knock the production value of the film or the fact they’ve even made it (what have I done?), the story isn’t exactly what I would have expected from an F13 fan film. You’d think babes and boobs and skinny dipping and premarital sex and drugs… This is a naturist weblogger out hiking […]
A rewatch. After Hell Fest and Haunt, I had a bug for carnivals and such. This is possibly the best creepy carnival film ever. I know there are things in this film that were scarred into my brain as a kid. This is a film I’d love to see get a proper remake.
