You’re Next (2011)

You’re Next (2011)

Country:  USA

Director: Adam Wingard

Main Stars: Sharni Vinson, Nicholas Tucci, Wendy Glenn, AJ Bowen, Joe Swanberg, Margarget Laney, Amy Seimetz, Ti West, Barbara Crampton

Storyline:  During a families wedding anniversary party a group of men in masks start to terrorize the family.

mv5bmtqwodaxmte1nf5bml5banbnxkftztcwntq0mjy3oq__v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_Review (Spoils):  A man and his wife have invited their siblings and their loved ones to come to an old mansion that help celebrate their wedding anniversary. What everyone does not know is the neighbors next door have already been slaughtered by someone in a mask that leaves messages in blood saying You’re Next. Through this we gain some character development, some conflict between the sons, some background on the family and money and of course a few killers roaming around in animal masks that are not afraid by any means on getting their hands bloody.

We have a topless scene in the first 2 min, lots of red blood, nasty axes, crossbows, glass cuts, some serious throat cuts, nails in the foot, some head smashes and a actual cool plot and storyline. We have the beautiful Sharni Vinson as our scream queen and the actual people used in this film are normal not you type Hollywood crap setup.

Rating: This film was sooo much fun! It was a total bloody mess and I was entertained actual through the whole damn thing. It’s been awhile since I enjoyed a horror film this much and it was over top gory. Think The Strangers meets the goriest thing and this sums this film up!

The House of the Devil (2012)

The House of the Devil (2012)

Country: USA

Director: Ti West

Main Stars: Jocelin Donahue, Tom Noonan, Mary Woronov, Greta Gerwig

Storyline: A young teenager takes a job as a babysitter but it becomes more she bargained for.

MV5BMTAxMDAxODg5ODReQTJeQWpwZ15BbWU3MDI5ODYxODI@__V1_SX214_AL_Review (Spoils): Cute young Samantha lives with a horny sloppy roommate and finds a deal on a nice little place of her own. The problem is she needs money to afford the place so she and her friend Megan find a babysitting gig which she goes for. She meets the sinister Mr. Ulman which describes that the job is not to sit children but an elder woman. As freaky as it is Samantha agrees and the first night she gets freaked and learns that there is more the Ulman’s then meets the eye.

We have a haunting 70s feel film that involves some dark scenes, gun wound to the head, some pentagrams, some dead bodies, lots of blood, some demon evil looking people and a plot that ends before it begins.

The character build is great in the film and so is the 70s feel, it all works. Jocelin Donahue was awesome and I was pulled right into her character. She was easy on the eyes and you can feel for her as she wants to get out of a bad situation. The problem with the film is it builds so well that once the truth of it all starts to spill out they ran out of time and rushed it. This film could of been so much more and could of been a gem but instead rolled off the tracks.

Rating: When this film started and I was watching it I was like “ alright this going to be awesome” but once the cult was revealed it was all over. I was just sitting there going “what happened did I miss something?” It just ended plain and simple. Ti West come on this could have been a classic and now it just sits with the okay crowd.

V/H/S (2012)

Country: USA

Director: Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, David Bruckner, Tyler Gillett, Justin Martinez, Glenn McQuaid, Joe Swanberg, Chad Villella, Ti West, Adam Wingard

Main Stars: Calvin Reeder, Lane Hughes, Kentucker Audley, Adam Wingard, Hannah Fierman, Jas Sams, Sophia Takal, Joe Swanberg, Jeannine Elizabeth Yoder, Norma C. Quinones, Helen Rogers, Chad Villella

Storyline: A group of men break into a house and find a strange collection of VHS tapes that have collections of people being killed in unbelievable ways.

MV5BMTUwODAxMzMwNF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMTk3MTQ5Nw@@._V1_SX214_AL_Review (Spoils): We have a group of men which break into a house and find a dead man sitting in a chair while the search for a tape in which they were to retrieve. During their search for the tape they come across a number of tapes that creepy or unreal footage on them. Each video tells a tale of something of the unknown.

“Amateur Night” The first tape is a tale of a group of three men who are out to shake the town the up. The groups of guys get drunk and do some drugs and end up bring back two girls back to the hotel room that they are staying in. One girl Lisa (Jas Sams) passes out as the creepy girl Lily (Hannah Fierman) is attracted to the odd ball boy of the group. The other two men force themselves on her to learn that Lily is not all she claims to be. It leads to a bloody mess.

“Second Honeymoon” A couple head to the Wild West to spend some time together. The woman of the couple Stephanie (Sophia Takal) gets her fortune told and learns that she is told visited by a loved one. This leads to a strange woman asking for ride in the middle of the night which the boyfriend (Joe Swanberg) declines. The woman becomes an intruder that films them, steals money and rubs the toothbrush on the toilet. This one ends also in a bloody throat slitting mess.

“Tuesday the 17th” Four friends take a trip through the bush and find bodies lying about and tell tales of horror that haunts the woods. They started to be hunted down one by one by a killer that looks like a blur running through the woods.

“The Sick Thing that Happened to Emily when she Younger” This sequence is webcam conversation between Emily (Helen Rogers) and her dick boyfriend James about her apartment being haunted. We have ghostly like children, a nasty itchy rash, a fetus from the back of the neck and some a connection between the boyfriend and the haunting

“10/31/98” This is the weaker of the bunch as it deals with a group of men as they come across a strange cult in the attic of an old haunted house. The special effects are pretty well done on this one though but the storyline is weak.

Rating: This to me is a modern day Creepshow which is a good thing. I personally had no idea what the film was about as I try not to read reviews before viewing films. This was a surprise for me as I did not know this was a bunch of short stories and I dug the film quite a bit. The stories were entertaining enough for me, it had some babes in it and it kept me glued to the screen. All of them were interesting except for the last one which kind of dragged on a bit. Want something new grab some beers and check this film out.

Cabin Fever 2 (2009)

Cabin Fever 2 (2009)

Country:  USA

Director:  Ti West

Main Stars:  Rider Strong, Noah Segan, Rusty Kelly, Alexi Wasser, Lindsay Axelsson

Storyline:  The famous flesh eating virus has now spread to a school due to bottled water.

Review (Spoils):

MV5BMTQ0NDcxNTQyOF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMTQ2MDk5NA@@__V1_SY317_CR5,0,214,317_

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to Springfield where the acting is bad and the script is worse. The main plot of this film is we have teenagers, being teenagers and going to prom. The bottled water company called Down Home Water gets the contract to the local high school and gets the water from the same place that the last film had contaminated the water.  So prom kicks in so does the virus in the water for all the students. Sure like the past film we have lots of gore and blood but the storyline is just lame and sorry but the students are just not interesting enough to hold the story together.

I had high hopes for this film as I loved the first one big time. I miss Eli Roth and so does this script. The film fell flat and boring except for the odd gory scene. Sure it has some classic scenes like the infected janitor pissing in the prom juice but really the film was missing Roth.

Rating: I should have known from the cartoon beginning that this film just was not like the first one. There is no cabin, no Eli Roth just the odd babe (Lindsay Axelsson) and some good gore but the rest of the story is American Pie.

The Innkeepers (2011)

Country:  USA

Main Stars:  Sara Paxton, Pat Healy, Kelly McGillis

Storyline:  Yankee Pedlar Inn is supposed to be haunted and two employees are trying to prove that it.

Review (Spoils): Yankee Pedlar Inn is slowly closing shop and two employees Claire (Sara Paxton) and Luke (Pat Healy) are bound that they will prove that the place is haunted by a ghost. Luke sets up a website with camera so they can cash out on this setup at the hotel. All fails and Claire becomes addicted in finding out that the place is haunted as Luke faked the whole thing.  In Claire’s search for the haunting she becomes close to an ex actress named Lee Reese Jones (Kelly McGillis) who just happens to be able to communicate with the dead. So they try to talk and reach the ghost of Madeline O’Malley.

Overall the acting is good and the Luke character is funny but there just was not enough to keep my attention. The scares were very lacking and gore does not exist in this film. Sorry but this film failed when it came to holding my attention.  If it was not for Pat Healy I would have been bored out of my skull.

Rating:  Sorry Ti West but this film was boring and not scary at all. There was too much fucking around before it got to the point and for that I lost total interest. Good idea but it fell flat due to lack of scares and threat to the characters.
