Eli Roth's The last Exorcism



Plot: A troubled evangelical minister agrees to let his last exorcism be filmed by a documentary crew.
Soounds interesting,put this down on my movies to see.

Its always Sunny quote of the day

"I hate listening to people's dreams. It is like flipping through a stack of photographs. If I'm not in any of them and nobody is having sex, I just don't care."

Quick Review:Survival of the dead

After Diary of the dead which I thought was average at the most and I thought maybe just maybe his next film would be an improvement,unfortunately it was not.It was actually much less enjoyable and something I will probably never watch again.

Survival of the dead is about 2 feuding families on Plum Island,the Muldoon family and the O'Flynn family who differ on what to do with the dead.One family wants to educate them if you will and the other wants to exterminate them.They are soon joined by a group of soldiers and a teenage boy who hear about this through a YouTube video.(rolls eyes:once again I hate movies that involve YouTube,seems so in your face all the time).Of course the soldiers soon pick a side and you get your feud.But besides that he bulk of this movie consists of the Muldoons and O'flynns complaining about one another.There is no tension whatsoever in this movie,the gore is there,though a bit to cgish at times but I thought there should be some scares,after all this is a horror movie,right?Instead characters walk around completely unfazed,unscared and or even effected much by the dead.


So much that I disliked about this movie had to do with the characters and the story,not one character was remotely likable and they all come off like whiny,obnoxious assholes.They were all under developed,shallow and I doubt anyone watching really cared what happened to them either.The teenage boy had to be the worst out of all them.Partick O'Flynn also was quite annoying at times and I just wanted his character to die.As for the storyline,how do you expect a viewer to give a shit about some absurd family feud,I know I sure as hell didn't.Besides it seems pretty simple,wouldn't you want your loved ones to rest in peace rather than be chained to a leash as a mindless deadhead.Then you add in the retarded twin subplot and it becomes more ridiculous.


Other little things also made me scratch my head,the main one being how is there still electricity,Internet and even television weeks into this dead-rising.How is it that nobody else has bothered to check if the Ferry was usable?or if it had gas?or if it had zombies on it?How is it that a zombie can somehow now ride a horse?

For a zombie movie I think this had the least amount of zombies as any other Romero film.I understand that Romero is trying to show us the we the people are the real threat but he went way too overboard trying to force-feed this down our mouths.


This is what Romero is today I guess,I mean I can't get on the guy too much,he did pretty much invent the zombie genre but that doesn't mean I have to automatically like everything he puts out.This to me is Romero at his laziest and I definitely rank this at the bottom of his deads along with diary though diary is a little more enjoyable than this.

Will Jaws get remade?

Lol...I am seriously wondering when we will hear about this,I just have a horrible feeling this will be remade in the next 5 yrs.I mean why not?Everything else has.I could picture it now,a huge CGI shark swallowing a whole boat.

Quick Review:Deadgirl

Not to be confused with the dead girl which featured the late Brittany Murphy.Quite frankly this is a tough one to review,it's a very sick and disturbing movie.It's pretty much a movie about out of control adolescents and how far they'd go to "get some" if you would.


Two socially out casted teenage boys,JT and Rickie are bored and one day after school they decide to go to an old building which was some sort of mental hospital,and destroy it.After a few beers they venture downstairs into a boileroom and find a naked unconscious girl strapped down to a table.Apparently she is dead,or not. The one boy JT decides hey this a dead helpless woman,lets fuck her.Sure, why not?I mean what would you do in a situation like that.Turns out though she is dead but not really dead,she is some sort of a zombie I guess,able to take multiple beatings,stabbings and rapes and still be...not dead.Of course the one teenager Rickie starts to feel somewhat guilty while JT has decided to make this deadgirl his personal sex slave.Without giving too much away the third act is really interesting,features some deadly confrontations and the ending is also somewhat of a shocker.


I always try to put myself in the characters head and I did in this one as well.I asked myself "If I was in high-school and came upon this situation what would I have done".I can tell you one thing I was no goody two shoes but fucking a deadgirl wouldn't have been at the top of my list but I guess there are adolescents that would do this in today's sick world and thats what this movie shows us.The film is well written and for a horror movie it's incredibly grim,sadistic and non-forgiving.It's not for everyone to watch but it's definitely a somewhat original idea and a sort of interesting take in the zombie genre if you can categorize it that way.

Refreshing to just watch the real ANOES

just to get the awful taste of the remake out of my mouth.I wonder what Wes Craven is thinking right about now.

A Nightmare on elm street 2010 review:watch the original


Pretty much that simple.Most reviews up already are similar to how I feel so it's no sense really going over too much.I took nothing away at all from Samuel Bayer's and PDs A Nightmare on Elm Street.Some thoughts

-Rooney Mara as Nancy was just dull and boring,and worst of all she didn't appear to be that scared of Freddy,in the original Heather Langenkamp did such an amazing job portraying that fear,you almost felt as if you were there with her in the dreams.I did not get a feel at all for Rooney Mara,way to emotionless. All she did was mope around and try to be an outcast and all emo.

-Kris who really was Tina from the original played by Katie Cassidy was very good.She portrayed that sense of fear missing from Rooney and I really felt more drawn to her character and for some reason the first 1/4 of the film seemed to focus on her instead of Nancy.They should have kept going in that direction,it would have been at the least a nice curveball thrown at the audience.And Spoiler,Kris' death which of course was the classic getting dragged across the ceiling death from the original came off almost laughable and was way too quick to leave any impact what-so-ever.And the way she fell in a perfect glammed up pose didn't sit well with me at all.

-the video diary scene also came across funny rather than scary,everytime I see a youtube or blog video featured in a horror movie I cringe
-the biggest laugh I got was the superman moment where Jackie as Freddy rips off his jacket to show his red and green sweater underneath

-Jackie Earle Haley I didn't care for much.Maybe it was the crappy script or the way he talked but I did not find him creepy in the slightest.He tried to come across and funny in one part and scary in another part,almost as if they couldn't make up their mind what direction they wanted to go in.Also the more and more I watched the more and more I didn't care for the look of Freddy.The makeup almost came across like they tried to make him too realistic and as Becky from the horror effect says "looks like a Ninja Turtle covered in pizza".



-relied way too much on cheap jump scares,there was no buildup or sense or foreboding danger which the original oozed with

-the bathtub scene was awful and the closing scene was done for no other reason then to pay homage to the original.It made no sense in context with the rest of the film.

-the only good thing I could say about this besides the performance of Katie Cassidy was the cinemotography,the movie did look slick though almost too slick

Horrible effort and I'm not sure if this was worse than PD's Friday the 13th

Samuel Bayer said whatttttt!!!!??

“Look, I’m gonna catch a lot of heat for this,” he begins. “But some of these fans on the web should just get up, stretch, breathe, go outside and get some fresh air, maybe get a girlfriend and just get a life. They should see the movie and make up their own minds.”

Wow,big talk for a guy who just supposedly just shit on the Nightmare series

Quick Review:The Descent 2




Not sure what to even say about this mess of a film.Pretty much everything done here was done better in Neil Marshall's The Descent.
For starters: The whole idea to get Sarah back into the cave was laughable at best,tell me what cop in this world would take a recently traumatized and beaten up girl back down to the caves she just escaped from??No cop would .So right from the start is just didn't sit well with me.
But it gets worse. We are introduced to a bunch of boring and uninteresting characters(worst one being the macho cop/sheriff) who we don't care about since all director Jon Harris cared about was trying to show more of the crawlers and less of the suspense and build up the first one boasted. Also while we are on the subject,the acting was quite bad and some of the dialogue was painfully unbelievable. Not to mention that the dark,unsettling feel of the first is not present here.Instead its actually light in the caves,yes even though you are thousands of feet underground...its light.

Another thing that really pissed me off was that this didn't even feel like a sequel,it felt more like a remake.Every scene here was done better in the original.We have the discovery for all the animal bones done here less effectively,we have the characters getting trapped when the cave gives in..done better in the first,we have the characters discovering the crawlers use sound to hunt when a walkie-talkie starts going off,we have the Sarah and another character plunged into a dark river...get where I'm going.Why bother making a sequel if you are going to use the same exact scenes with different characters??Try coming up with something new and inventive for a change.

Not enough good stuff to even mention.The gore was there was I guess you could say was good,there was a surprise appearance about midway through that helped me from falling asleep.I think if you Saw the first you can guess who or what it is.And the ending,talk about a cheap sell out ending.Pretty lame.

Final Say: I guess I had expectations and little to high for a direct to dvd sequel.I thought this would be able to have somewhat of a similar feel to the first.Instead it got nothing right from the original.Skip this and stick to the original

So ahh PD's A Nightmare on Elm Street

is getting ripped to absolute shreds review wise,and many blogs here that I value have also tore it apart,at this point I'm wondering if I should still see it or not.I have a pass for it so I guess I should and I normally don't put too much stock into reviews until I see it but wow this has to be one of the worst backlashes I have ever seen.

Welcome

-we all go a little crazy sometimes
