Population 436 (2006) - I think this may be Fred Durst's real first role in a movie, he doesn't do to bad of a job either.
The Wicker Man (1973) - What can I say about this awesome film other than it was FREAKIN' AWESOME!!
Dawn of the Dead (1978) - I had to break in my new widescreen LCD TV with a classic. :-D
Dawn of the Dead (2004) - Zombies should NEVER run.....EVER!!

Zombies should NEVER run.....EVER!!

One of my fave aspects of the film. So unexpected; quite shocking, somehow.

13 Ghosts


The recent remake. I saw this in the theaters and thought it was a pretty decent movie, Not great , but good.

I enjoyed the film, it's just that IF rotting zombies were to ever walk this earth for real, I'd like for them to be slow and almost at a snails pace.....The fast ones just creep me the Hell out.

Rose Red was a complete rip-off of The Haunting, and nowhere near as atmospheric or well-written. Storm of the Century was another of his bloated beached whales, too.

King has a terrible problem - has always had it - of having fantastic ideas that make great short stories and novellas... then smothering them in dross, quasi-Kerouac prose and frankly dull padding.  His days as a struggling magazine hack, being paid by the word, teaching and working in a laundry while living in a trailer to make ends meet, obviously affected him - he writes 66% more in each novel than is necessary or interesting. His artistic control over the movies ensures that they transfer to the screen in all their obscenely overweight blubberiness, like some out of retirement boxer who can't shake the flab and punches well below his weight.

Add to that his constant... shall we call it "recycling"?... of his own and other people's plot ideas - snoozerama  :|

He's not alone - Clive Barker can't carry off a full-length novel 8 times out of ten, either. His sin with the movies is completely the other end of the spectrum, however: surrendering all control over them. Hence the terrible Hellraiser series (oh, how I mourned the death of The Hellbound Heart from his Books of Blood... )

H.P. Lovecraft's Necronomicon (1994) - Jeffery Combs looks absolutely nothing like himself in this film, as he takes on the role of H.P. Lovecraft himself.  This movie is an anthology and consists of 3 other stories, all revolving around the Book of the Dead, besides the one that Combs stars in.

"Darkman"

I love this movie. I remember seeing it in the theaters and thinking it was great, and years later I still think it is one of Sam Raimi's best movies

Alone in the Dark (2005) - Holy bad movie, Batman!  Christian Slater has fallen so far down the acting ladder.  And please, when saying Newfoundland in a movie, pronounce it properly....New-fin-land....it's not that hard.

i agree, i was so disappointed in it...but it was based on a video game done by the same guy whose ruined other great games by making their movies...blood rayne, house of the dead etc...a lot of game fans are really not fond of him.

demons bah, they looked like geiger alien rip offs...now those were scary.   :-o

demonic, i thought tom savini would save it...not!

next will be do you like hitchcock, a murder/suspense by dargentino with a high compliment by fangoria, i'm hoping it won't let me down...it'll be a sad day when he does.  ;)

"Session 9"

Decent, well acted but slow moving thriller
with a confusing ending

"The Car" (1977)
-James Brolin



Have you ever seen a movie and thought it was bad, but a few years later you see it again and think, "That wasn't as bad as I remember", well..."The Car" ain't one of those films, Almost 30 years since I last saw this thing and it's still a heaping load of crap. A decent cast toatally wasted in this god awful film. How it escaped "Mystery Science Theater 3000" I'll never know. Bad, really bad.

once a movie is bad, it sort of stays bad...i don't know if it'd count as horror but...

legend of the overfiend, i'll leave it at that...but i enjoyed it!
