“I like when the boys both fall for the girl.”
A foreboding house in the neighbour turns out to be a living and breathing entity. Wonderfully creative design for the ever transforming house. It actually looks terrifying, but not to me. I’m a big boy. While it’s only 9 years old the animation already looks outdated. They look like more detailed characters from The Sims. …
A young man with a blood disorder and his skin is sensitive to sunlight doesn’t realize he’s a vampire because the script requires him not to know. This isn’t terrible; it’s just nothing we haven’t seen before. Netflix figured I’d give this movie higher than 4 stars. Nope.
I wanted to like this film because of the pop culture history that’s attached. I just couldn’t get into it. Perhaps silent films just aren’t for me. However, the lead, Conrad Veidt, is exceptional. And his character’s appearance was the real inspiration for the original design of The Joker. Some may see this as a …
Guillero del Toro’s first American movie. It’s a slick modern update on the mutated creature features of the 1950s. I watched the director’s cut. It’s been a while since I’ve seen the theatrical version so I couldn’t tell you the difference, but I enjoyed this alternate version. Solid story, great creature design and effects, great …
“I got sad when Mr. Magorium died. Seriously, it’s sad.”
A very different spin on the zombie genre. It’s more of a family struggle drama than anything else. The horror is subtle and more psychological. Schwarzenegger gives a touching performance as the supportive father of an infected daughter. The score is beautifully emotional and haunting. This is a special movie.
“I liked it when the frog got his mind controlled.”
A ’70s cult horror classic gets a midnight showing and soon, film and reality collide as footage of the theatre patrons getting killed start getting spliced into the movie. Light on budget, heavy on gore. A worthy entry into the already crowded slasher genre; it deserves a bigger audience.
Set in a small mining town where Valentine’s dances have been outlawed for 20 years and everyone plays a harmonica. One of the many holiday-themed slasher flicks that were churned out in the early ’80s. Decent kills are bogged down by annoying characters. Passable as a cult favourite, but far from a classic.
