When the first sequel to Insidious was announced I rolled my eyes. To my surprise it turned out to be a worthy addition to the story. When Insidious: Chapter 3 was announced I rolled my eyes even harder. I knew for a fact there was nowhere they could take this story that would result in something positive. My senses didn’t fail me.
Battered and weak, the feeble Manster retreated to the woods to find a shred of solace. He had been typing for days on end. His claws were bloodied. His black heart was thumping wildly. He needed a rest badly. His captors were hot on his trail and he didn’t know where else to run. His energy ran out and he collapsed face first in the snow.
He was frozen solid but deep in his slumber he could still hear the sounds of the drills. They had come to bring him back…
I’m back baby! After October’s MASSACRE MARATHON I was beat but I have returned rested and rejuvenated with a brand new horror movie review of It Follows! A few weeks ago the hype for this limited release was frothing over the edge of the glass and it got me thinking that I might not get a chance to see It Follows if they don’t release it in regular nationwide theaters. So I decided to drive an hour and a half to the closest art house theater to sneak a peek. Two days later, the pot finally boiled over and It Follows went mainstream opening in every triple A theater from here to Transylvania. Just my luck! At least now I can be a hipster and say I saw it before it was cool.
I managed to make it to the theater late tonight after work to see the baby of The Conjuring director James Wan, Annabelle. A little over a year ago when I saw The Conjuring I found that the part that resonated with me the most was the intro sequence featuring the titular demonic doll. I was fairly surprised when I heard they where going to take that and make it into its own feature-length film. I was on board!
