Me and Jasmine have created a new horrorvlog series called Bitches of horror, where we will talk about movies, games and other stuff related to horror. The first episode is out right now and you can watch it below.
"The story is funny and the special effects were really nice"
Burying the Ex:A guy's regrets over moving in with his girlfriend are compounded when she dies and comes back as a zombie.
Alexandra Daddario has quickly become one of my favorite actresses and I was really looking forward to seeing her in Burying the Ex. The story is funny and the special effects were really nice, especially creating the decomposing body of Ashley Green. This whole movie had so many moments of pure awkwardness between the characters that is was hard to watch sometimes, but that was a good thing.
"The acting of Ryan Reynolds and Helen Mirren were solid"
Woman in gold: Maria Altmann, an octogenarian Jewish refugee, takes on the Austrian government to recover artwork she believes rightfully belongs to her family.
The best thing about Woman in gold was the way that they integrated the present and the past, it was beautifully done. The acting of Ryan Reynolds and Helen Mirren were solid and the scenes hit me right in the feels sometimes. One of the best drama movies so far this yet!
"The series feels just like the movies did when I was young"
Scream: What starts as a YouTube video going viral soon leads to problems for the teenagers of Lakewood and serves as the catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to the town's troubled past.
It is interesting that in the series, the school discusses about slashers not being able to make a good series, but is that true? I am a huge fan of the Scream films and when I mean huge I mean that I used to watch them all the time when I was 11-12 years old. I was obsessed and knew everything about them and even read the scripts for the films. I was super excited to hear about the tv-series, but was a bit dissapointed when I saw a picture of Ghostface, of the mask.
The series feels just like the movies did when I was young and it definitely has a Scream feeling to it, even without the original Ghostface. This series takes me back and has the typical slasher elements. I am interested in the characters and there is some blood! I am starting to get used to the new look of Ghostface and can not wait to watch more episodes.
"The sequences with the ants were great and stunning"
Ant-Man:Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
I was surprised that Ant-man is one of my favorite films from Marvel. The sequences with the ants were great and stunning. The details were beautiful and the humor and jokes fitted the movie. Paul Rudd was great as Ant-man and the two, yes two extra scenes after the credits roll made me excited for what is yet to come. Ant-man is one of my favorite Marvel heroes now.
Lost River:A single mother is swept into a dark underworld, while her teenage son discovers a road that leads him to a secret underwater town.
So beautiful and filled with so much angst, maybe that is why it spoke to me so much. It teaches you that sometimes it is better to let things go rather than fighting for something by risking your own well being. It was a pleasant suprise that Barbara Steele was also starring in this, most famous for her roles in Italian Gothic horrorfilms like Black Sunday. A great directorial debut from Ryan Gosling, hoping to see more from him as a director.
Four flies on grey velvet is everything you expect from a Dario Argento movie
Four flies on grey velvet: A musician is stalked by an unknown killer who's blackmailing him for an accidential killing of another stalker. But is everything what it appears to be?
Four flies on grey velvet is everything you expect from a Dario Argento movie. It is beautiful, bloody and keeps you guessing until the end to what is really going on. The story is intriguing and the solution to try and catch the killer is genious. The use of dolls was very clever, just like in Profondo Rosso. Suspiria is still my favorite Dario Argento film, bit Four flies on grey velvet is very good.
House on the edge of the park: Two low-life punks invite themselves to a party at a posh villa and after being taunted by their snobbish hosts, hold everyone hostage and subject them to various forms of torture and mayhem.
I also rewatched this movie at the festival in Alingsås and this one was better than I remembered. The opening song gave a creepy effect and I liked it whenever it was played throughout the movie. Hess was creepy as always and the use of razorblades was a nice touch.
"The special effects were better than I remembered, but everything else was really bad."
Zombie Holocaust: The members of an expedition in search for the last faithful of Kito, the cannibal god, land on a small island in the Moluccas (East Indies) and are soon hunted by cannibals and zombies, these being created by a sinister Doctor O'Brien who is experimenting with corpses. Suzan, a sexy lady in the expedition team, eventually takes a hold on things, as she is accepted as queen of the cannibals, and direct them against the mad scientist and his army of zombies.
I saw this movie for the first time many years ago and now I rewatched it again at the filmfestival in Alingsås and it was equally awful this time around. The special effects were better than I remembered, but everything else was really bad.
There is one scene in which a character jumps out of a window and his arm tears away from his body when he hits the ground, but in the next shot the arm is still there and it is like nothing happened. This movie could have been great with some changes to the script. The zombies were really ugly and some only had makeup on their face, but not on the arms.
Yor- Hunter from the future: A warrior seeks his true origins in a seemingly prehistoric wasteland.
Yor has really cool environments and it almost felt like a couple of movies pressed together into one film, because it happened so much in Yor. The costumes were great and the story had almost everything. I laughed so much throughout the film, especially because of the girls' jealousy.
