Children Of The Corn

For certain movies you need to keep an open mind. Children Of The Corn stretches that idea a little too far. Apparently, this movie is a cult classic and I can understand the cult part because it didn’t do too much for me. Continue reading

The Exorcism Of Emily Rose



It’s in our nature to dismiss things that seem illogical at first as something with a rational explanation behind it. The Exorcism Of Emily Rose explores that idea with science and religion on trial. The setting is a modern-day courtroom filled with skeptics. Even the defense attorney (Laura Linney) has her doubts when she is appointed to defend a priest who performed a fatal exorcism on an allegedly possessed young woman. Before we start I would like to say that I saw Sinister last night and it is reflected heavily (but not influencing the outcome) in this review. Continue reading

Desperation

Stephen King is my favorite author (when I read books). That’s why I was intrigued when I¬†noticed Desperation, directed by Mick Garris and starring Hellboy. Ron Perlman was actually the best part of the whole movie. He plays a deranged sheriff who likes to talk smack and whose face gets progressively worse in moderation. It’s too bad all of a sudden he is nowhere to be found halfway through, although the character who replaces his is also very good. Continue reading

A Serbian Film

 

 

 

Break out your censor bars and cover your children’s heads with potato sack because A Serbian Film is emerging! The film, featuring Srdjan Todorovic in a haunting role as a lower class retired porn star, has gained a ton of controversy since its release in 2010. The movie had to be cut a couple of times and was banned from film festivals as well as a few countries all together. I found the uncut version. Continue reading

Silent Hill

“Mother is God in the eyes of a child.”

Just one of the many themes of the movie Silent Hill, directed by Christophe Gans starring Radha Mitchell, Laurie Holden, and Sean Bean. I would like to point out that I have never played any of the Silent Hill video games. This is also my second time viewing the movie. With that being said I really enjoyed this film! I didn’t really remember too much so it was mostly a new experience. Right from the start the tension is high with parents looking for their sleepwalking daughter outside in the middle of the night. The little girl talks about a place called Silent Hill in her sleep and has no idea what she said when she wakes up. The mother decides to take her to the ghost town to jog her memory (without her husband’s consent). Continue reading

The Devil Inside

More like “The Devil Inside Your Wallet”

Welcome to the month of monsters, the list of nightmares, the event of a deathtime: THE MASSACRE MARATHON! I thought I would kick of the celebration of horror with “The Devil Inside”, directed by William Brent Bell. I shouldn’t have. No, really- I shouldn’t have. I would be able to make a long list of things that were wrong with this movie, but since I will be doing at least 33 reviews this month I will keep it short. Continue reading
