No time for love Dr. Jones.

Not a lot of time for typing tonight and I may have posted this already but I don’t care. It’s been a pretty rough week but this always cheers me up.

I just realized that this only has about 7000 views. That’s unacceptable, it’s genius. Get over there, rate, comment and favorite.

Yay Fright Night! Amanda Bearse was an ugly teen.

I watching Fright Night as we speak and there will be a review to come but for now I’m just happy to see “Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things” playing on Charlies TV. Memories…

Blah!

Cause of death? Being a bland and mediocre movie.

I sat down to watch Pathology, not really knowing what to expect. The trailers are interesting, at least interesting enough to warrant a watch.

And to finish off the evening…

Zombie werewolves.

Low budget awesomeness from Canada’s wang (southern Ontario sort of hangs off of the rest of the country, in all fairness though, it’s penetrating the U.S.)

Support indie horror.

Or Else.

Oopsie Poopsie!

I can’t believe I forgot to update…before…the one I just did. Let’s go back in time to a week ago and check out the bounty that I just received.

After many years of not being a complete person I finally grabbed a copy of Re-Animator for my very own. I had almost forgotten how completely and thoroughly I love this movie.

The movie is bloody and tense but perfectly balanced with dark humour and a small dose of slapstick. Jeffrey Combs is fantastic as the intense and eccentric Dr. Herbert West and obviously struck up a friendship with director Stuart Gordon, you’ll find he went on to do many future Gordon films.

I love the original, I love the sequels Bride of Re-Animator and Beyond Re-Animator and am embarrassingly giddy of the prospect of House of Re-Animator in 2010 (not likely).

The real surprise for me was the movie Psyclops, “Half man, half video camera, totally deranged” The acting is terrible, the writing is painful and infuriating and the movie is 100% hilarious fun. Buy it, the only place you’ll find it is thrift stores and bargain bins so it will be well worth it’s tiny price tag.

I love October (it gives me a more legitimate excuse to spend all my free time watching horror movies).

Happy Halloween month folks.

I love October for a few reasons. It’s not for Halloween, though I do love carving pumpkins. I love the discount bins and displays that pop up in every store where all the gore I can handle is being thrust at me at discount prices. I love the fact that little indie theatres start playing The Shining and Night of the Living Dead and all the classic horror that rarely sees the light of day.

My most recent acquisitions were…

I was happy to find both Demons and Demons 2 together for so cheap. Demons is a much better film but they are both gore-filled, funny, wonderfully shot 80’s flicks and you can’t deny the abilities of both Argento and Lamberto Bava.

These movies are over the top and really reflect the aesthetic of 80’s horror which will be reflected on fondly for generations (especially considering what a shit show the 90’s became). Featuring music from Motley Crue, Billy Idol and The Smiths among others this movies is a great slice of the generation I call my own. Both are must owns in my opinion.

I also grabbed Fright Night for CHEAP. I hate vampire films for the most part but this is one I adore. It’s haunted me since I saw it for the first time when I was about 12. For the record, Marcy Darcy was never hot. You’ve been warned. Now I need to find Fright Night 2.

Lastly, Pathology. I don’t know anything about the movie aside from starring Alyssa Milano (Who’s the Boss) and Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes), I’ll let you know how it goes.
