The horror comedy that has it all: ghosts, pizza, witches, a werewolf, murder and is produced by A24.
It’s December and in the next few weeks I decided to review a few movies that came out earlier in the year that I didn’t have the time to watch or to write about before and I also feel didn’t get, for one reason or another, half the recognition they deserve. Today I want to bring to your attention Slice, that was barely talked about anywhere… is it just because it was an indie movie? I would have thought the all-star cast would have attracted more people. This horror-com has serious potential of becoming a cult classic. I think Slice got forgotten about pretty quickly and even if it won’t win any film of the year awards, it sure is worth spending an hour and a half of your time.
An entertaining entry into the franchise but left me mildly unsatisfied…
Let’s face it, the Halloween franchise has always been a hit and miss prospect. One movie is great, the next one is average, etc., etc. With every Halloween: H20, there is the disastrous Halloween: Resurrection. Rob Zombie’s Halloweens were also hit and miss. Say what you want about his version, but at least it was different to everything that came before it.
"I feel the need to say that still 40 years after coming out, the film that was almost called The Babysitter Murders, stood the test of time."
The new Halloween is out today (October 19th) here in the UK, and since it follows the story directly where the 1978 movie left it, I figured it was appropriate to review this classic. You read that right, that means you won’t need to spend a day watching every single one of the 8 Halloween films of the original run or even the 2 (AWESOME) Rob Zombie reboots to refresh your memory of all Michael Myers' antics, because none of that counts for squat in the whole storyline anymore.
Interesting concept, but overall average.
With so much hype for The Nun, there was no way it was going to meet those standards, think Annabelle as an example. Well, I was half right. What the story lacked in concept and plot, was made up for with the beautiful cinematography. Read on.
When Gioele from Celluloid Nightmares and Zona Horror (go follow his awesome facebook groups!) asked me if I wanted to interview David Howard Thornton, the man behind Art the Clown from Terrifier, I jumped straight in! First of all I actually really enjoyed this flick so I had a few questions I was dying to ask, plus this opportunity made me feel a bit like a real journalist hehe... Did I get nominated for a Pulitzer yet?
