"The music was amazing and it made me think of horrormovies from the 70's and 80's"
It Follows: After a young (Jay) girl has sex with a guy she is dating, something unknown is starting to follow her and she must survive at any cost.
The new horrorfilm that everyone is talking about is It Follows. I really liked it because Jay was in constant fear of the thing that was following her and I was on the edge of my seat throughout the film because I could feel her fear. Jays character was buildt up very well and even though she was surrounded by her friends, she was alone in her struggle against IT. The music was amazing and it made me think of horrormovies from the 70's and 80's and the story was good, this is definitely one of the best horrormovies of 2015 so far.
"Hayride 2 feels almost like Halloween 2 it begins right where the first one ended"
Hayride 2: The end of one journey only marks the beginning of another as Detective Loomis returns to uncover the truth behind the Legend of Pitchfork.
Hayride 2 feels almost like Halloween 2 it begins right where the first one ended, with the victims going to the hospital and the killer going to the hospital and finds them there, after second thought it sounds EXACTLY like Halloween 2, but not as good. The first one was a bit better, but this one had a bit better cinematography. The gore was okay, not too many creative deathscenes, but I am guessing they were working with a low budget and getting lots of gore is really expensive, but there are ways to work around that. The ending was expected and I still can not decide if Pitchfork is a character I want to continue following or not, he feels like an oversized Jason Voorhees, but not as interesting, he even has that bag over his head with holes for the eyes and many people will feel like it is a Friday the 13th part 2 rip-off.
"The use of the pitchfork was a nice touch, but this one does not stand out amongst the other slasher films"
Hayride: A college student returning home for Halloween is forced to face his childhood fears when an escaped killer takes refuge in his family's "Haunted Hayride".
I have now watched Hayride and Hayride 2, two slasherfilmes and I am sure that this will be a beginning of a slasherseries like Friday the 13th, but not as good. Hayride evolves around the story of Pitchfork, a killer on a killingspree searching for his daughter who ran away with her boyfriend or so the legend is told. The flashbacks could have been done better, but I must admit that I did not see the ending coming, I was sure of one thing and then it changed completely. The use of the pitchfork was a nice touch, but this one does not stand out amongst the other slasher films and is not as good as those from the 80's, but Hayride is worth a watch and I would not mind if several more Hayride movies were made because I am sure that Pitchforks story could evolve and be more interesting.
Friday the 13th
Happy friday the 13th!
Friday the 13th movies will always have a special place in my heart. I grew up watching them every summer and I really like them and Jason Voorhees is brilliant, even though it was Mrs. Voorhees who did the killing in the first one. So let's do a list of the five best movies from the Friday the 13th series.
1. Friday the 13th (1980)
2. Friday the 13th part 4
3. Jason X
4. Friday the 13th part 8
5. Friday the 13th part 2
I do like the other ones aswell, the only one I have a problem with is Friday th 13th 5 and if you have seen the movie, you wil understand why, it is almost the same problem that I have with Halloween 3. How would your list be if you had to choose?
Movies that have disturbed me part 1
I have seen so many horror movies and only a few movies have truly gotten in under my skin in the horror genre. We all find different things disturbing and what might distubr me, might not disturb someone else, so this is my personal list and if you don't agree, I will understand that, here we go.
1. Halloween 1978. I was six years old when I first saw Halloween and everything about that movie was creepy and it sparked my passion for horror. Michael Myers mask creeped me out and the music is still spooky today, the way that Michael Myers seems to not feel anything underneath the mask is one of the things that creeps me out about him. Thank you John Carpenter for introduing me to the wonderful world of horror movies.
2. Salo, 120 days of Sodom. When I first got this movie on dvd, I watched it five times in a week, yes you read that right, five times and it made me feel all empty inside. A bunch of young females and males get kidnapped by four fascists and are subjected to different kinds of tortures. Pasolini is one of my favorite directors and he was not afraid of taking on difficult subjects and Salo is one hell of a ride and the book is even more disturbing.
3. Sinister. You might be thinking, What is Sinister doing here? and I just rewatched it this weekend and that is one hell of a creepy movie, as I said we find different things disturbing and the contrast between his familylife and the videotapes he finds of the murders is what is disturbing. Those videotapes show a grim reality and how disturbing and ugly death is and it freaked me out, mostly because the victims knew what was coming, but could not do anything about it and that Mr.Boogie was also kind of creepy, atleast until you saw a bit too much of him.
Lord of illusions
"This film had some cool ideas, but it also seemed that it had too many of them"
Lord of Illusions: During a routine case in L.A., NY private investigator Harry D'Amour stumbles over members of a fanatic cult, who are waiting for the resurrection of their leader Nix. 13 years ago, Nix was calmed down by his best trainee Swann. In the meantime Swann is advanced to a popular illusionist like David Copperfield and is married to the charming Dorothea. She hires D'Amour to protect Swann against the evil cult members. A short time later Swann is killed by one of his own tricks and the occurrences are turning over, and it crackles between Dorothea and D'Amour.
Clive Barker is a great writer and I was surprised not to have seen Lord of Illusions before. This film had some cool ideas, but it also seemed that it had too many of them. Hellraiser was a pretty clean movie and did not side track so much, but Lord of Illusions tried to go in many different ways and it seemed messy. I liked the gore and the creativity, but I can understand why so many were dissapointed with this one.
"The use of music was the best thing in this movie"
The Equalizer: A man believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and has dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when he meets a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can't stand idly by - he has to help her.
The first movie of 2015 that I saw was The Equalizer and I was not dissapointed. The tone throughout the movie was really good and dark. The use of music was the best thing in this movie and they were perfect for each scene, especially the scenes where Denzel Washingston was getting some job done. I liked the story and the action was great.
Sci-fi convention 2014 Stockholm
I had an awesome time at the Sci-fi convention in Stockholm 2014
The Sci-fi convention in Stockholm was this saturday and I did not have much time to spend there unfortunately, but I found some movies, had my Poison Ivy costume on and met some friends. My wonderful friend Isabella took som pictures and she also worked at the SubDvd stall and she was dressed as Babydoll and she looked absolutely gorgeous.
Thanks to Isabella for these awesome pictures!
I found 8 new movies to my collection, if I had had more time, I would have bought a few more, but I had to go home to eat and then go to Superior Challenge 11, so a lot of things happened this day. The 8 new movies were Squirm on Arrow bluray, Open Windows on bluray, Våtmarker on bluray, Thunderbolt,
"The way that the clown was transformering really impressed me"
Clown: A loving father finds a clown suit for his son's birthday party, only to realize the suit is part of an evil curse that turns its wearer into a killer.
I had been waiting to see this one for a long time and it was worth the wait. The idea was really cool and the way that the clown was transforming really impressed me. This is a mean film, especially towards the young victims and there was no comedy in this one, so it is a bit different from Stitches. So if you are expecting Clown to be something like Stitches, you will be dissapointed because this one is much darker.
"This movie seriously made me want to go on a long hake and walk through beautiful places."
Wild: A Chronicle of one woman's 1,100-mile solo hike undertaken as a way to recover from a recent catastrophe.
This movie seriously made me want to go on a long hike and walk through beautiful places. The editing really helped create an emotional story and Reese Witherspoon played her part really well and she was worthy of her academy award nomination. Everytime Cheryl was hiking out in the wild it made me feel free and good inside. I could relate with Ceryl on different things and that drew me into the film. My favorite line in the entire film was the very last one before the end credits came.
Deux jours, uns nuit (2 days, 1 night)
"The ending was not what I expected"
Deux jours, une nuit: Sandra, a young Belgian mother, discovers that her workmates have opted for a significant pay bonus, in exchange for her dismissal. She has only one weekend to convince her colleagues to give up their bonuses so that she can keep her job.
I found this movie boring, even though Sandra (Marion Cotillard) was dealing with a tough situation, I never found the movie to be stressful or to feel her stress. Maybe it was due to the editing and the pace of the movie which was to slow and soft for me to really engage in her battle. The ending was not what I expected, but still not enough to make up for the whole film.
