Horns (2013)

Horns (2013)

Main Stars: Daniel Radcliffe, Max Minghella, Joe Anderson, Juno Temple, Kelli Garner, James Remar, Kathleen Quinlan, Heather Graham

Storyline:  Following the murder of his girlfriend a young man gains the powers of evil.

MV5BMTQ2Nzk5NzIxMF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTM2NTc5MjE@__V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_Review (Spoils):  A young man named Iggy (Daniel Radcliffe) wakes up to the find out that he is the suspect of the nasty death of his long time girlfriend Merrin (Juno Temple). He wakes up having horns growing out of his head and learns that nobody believes him that he is innocent in the small town.  With the growth of the new horns he learns that he can influence people and read their true thoughts. In all this madness he needs to find out who killed his girlfriend and claim his innocence.

Not really a horror film that I would normally review or even watch but this supernatural film intrigued me with its storyline and the blood is there. We have a young romance murder mystery with some serious fun with the horns and the clear display of people’s sins in his mind. We have blood, snakes, horns, some nudity, some okay CGI, gunshot wounds and a little bit of gore.

Rating: Not to ruin the film too bad I think people should check this film out. It is strange and it’s like the Needful Things storyline but more supernatural and for a younger newer generation. The acting is very well done, the graphic could have been more believable but the writing was good. Check this little film out if you haven’t as some horror fans will find it interesting enough and then know why I reviewed it.

Haute Tension (2003)

Haute Tension (2003)

Country: France

Director: Alexandre Aja

Main Stars: Cecile De France, Maiwenn, Philippe Nahon

Storyline: Two college friends have a country getaway at one of their parent’s place where they are encountered by a killer.

MV5BNzEzMjEzMDI5N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNDc0ODkyMQ@@__V1_SX214_Review (Spoils): Marie (Cecile De France) and Alexia (Maiwenn) go on a small get away vacation together at Alexia’s parents place. When they arrive late in the night at the farm they are greeted and then a strange killer shows up. He starts to kill off everyone in a terrible bloody mess and then kidnaps Alexia. Marie tries to figure who the killer is and rescue Alexia.

We got some crazy gore in this bad boy or girl in this case. Lots of blood, heads flying, nasty pole with barb wire, stabs and slashes and the classic concert chainsaw. There is a lot of blood in this one!!!

Rating: Ever watch a film and you’re like “Wow what a mind fuck that was!” well this is one of them. This movie does not waste much time and gets right into the horror dirtiness. This one is always close to my heart as a classic of the 2000 era. Grab some pints for this one!

Review (Spoils): We got cheese, killer fish, booze, blood, massive gore and boobs. This film hit the horror genre on the head. Its spring break and the place are filled with horny and drunk teenagers that just want to party and bang. Sheriff Forester (Elisabeth Shue) is having a hard time controlling the teenagers and now she has really cheesy CGI piranha to deal with.  The plot is that simple and Alexandre Aja throws more boobs and nudity that he can between kills. The movie flows at a fast pace and it is to be taken as a fun film not serious at all. Jerry O’Connell plays the dirty and scummy “Girls gone Wild” director who is tracking down fine ladies for his poorly boring porn vids. He does a great job and it is just another reason to throw more nudity in this film, hello yummy Kelly Brook I’m talking about you! We have more nasty blood and gore and it really cuts loose towards the end. Film holds to fish bites, swarms of piranha, blood and more blood, eyeballs, lots of bone exposure and even the other bone exposure (hahaha yes I’m looking at you Jerry O’Connell).

Rating:  Not the greatest film and yes it was a bit too much on the teenage party stuff (sigh I’m getting old). But for a fun film with some friends this is not too bad and it is better than the original to be honest.  The only real disappointment of the film was no Elisabeth Shue in a bikini, shame on you Alexandre Aja.
