Christmas Horror Movies Part 5

Posted in movies on December 31, 2009 by chrisdsav

Silent Night Deadly Night

In 1984 a small little horror movie came out during the Holiday season that was considered the last straw with slasher films for moms across America. This helped one of the tag lines connect to the film The film They tried to ban this movie because of the use of Santa Claus as a Serial Killer. This movie depicted a killer Santa cutting up teenagers. The movie was the third or fourth film to use X-mas as the stage for a slasher movie.  The movie revolves around a man trying to get revenge on Christmas Eve  by going after there kids years later. The movie has been released on dvd twice. The second dvd release was last year and is the better recommendation. SNDL was the only x-mas and for that matter Holiday Horror movie outside Halloween to spawn multiple sequels.

There are 4 other films in the series SNDL2, SNDL3 Better Watch Out, SNDL4 Initiation. SNDL5 The Toy Maker. The only one I can really recommend is part 1.  A remake was on the way but was halted and we never heard anymore about it.

December Horror TV Spotlite

Posted in entertainment, SciFi, tv on December 27, 2009 by chrisdsav

Every month we are going to start spotlighting shows once a month. Reason being is there are SOOOOO many shows its hard to keep up.

Dexter–The season 4 ending was so shocking it was reminiscent of Dexter’s birth. A baptism of Blood if you will. John Lithgow as the Trinity Killer was downright creepy and weird. Deborah finding out who Dexter’s mother and brother were awesome. But the ending that last scene was off the top. Check out this week’s TV guide to read an interview with the victim.

Doctor Who— All month-long on BBC America they are broadcasting the Doctor Who Specials Planet of the Dead, The Waters of Mars and The End of Time. The creepy one and I mean UBER Creepy is Waters of Mars. OOOOOO It really freaked me out.  After this David Tenet steps down and Matt SMith takes over as the 11th Doctor.

The Witches of Eastwick–Based on the 1988 movie of the same name, It got cancelled I never watched it too bad so sad.

DollHouse–Poor Joss Whedon can’t keep a TV show on the air if his life depended on it. It’s not fair , this was a good show better than Firefly. He needs to move away from Fox and put this on sci-fi no wait they hate good shows too now that they are called SYFY. How about a bunch of direct to dvd movies, like they do in Japan.

In Oct a movie came and went so fast no one saw it but Stephen King it seems. It’s strange how a movie staring Chris Pine, (hot off his role in Star Trek playing the young Captain James T. Kirk) had little to no press for this movie. The second is Stephen King said he loved this movie in his Entertainment Weekly article. The movie is about a virus that makes you very sick and gives you a bad rash and is contagious by touch. Other than that its the drama the characters go thru to survive in a fracked up world. There are no Zombies, no Rage, no Mutants. It’s a movie of survival and what you would do to protect yourself in a world gone dead. Pine should get credit for the different role he plays in this compared to Star Trek. He turns from being the Asshole hero to a victim in this movie in a way you just feel like crap after watching it. It just came on dvd and there is no bonus material on it. Rent it tho its worth watching.

Christmas Horror Movies Part 4

Posted in entertainment, movies, tv on December 22, 2009 by chrisdsav

Many horror themed tv shows have had a Christmas episode or two here is my pics of the best,  or at least what I could think of.

A Supernatural Christmas Special–Sam and Dean fight a couple of Pagan Gods pretending to be St.Nick on Christmas while remembering the Christmas they had growing up. This one I highly recommend its on the S3 box set.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer–The First a big villain later in season 7 tries to get Angel to commit suicide. This is kinda sappy but it introduced The First who was a pain in the ass later on. This episode is on the S3 box set.

Mystery Science Theater 3000— One with Joel,  Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, a bunch of Martians kidnap Santa to bring Christmas to Mars. One with Mike simply called Santa Claus. In this one Santa teams up with Merlin the Magian to fight Satan. Ok yeah its funny when you watch it with Mike and the Bots. Both are on dvd the Mike episode was just released.

Tales from The Crypt–The Crypt Keeper spins a tale of a killer Santa killing people on Christmas Eve. This episode is on the S1 box set.

The Real Ghostbusters–The GB accidentlychange the future and  destroy Christmas by capturing the Ghosts of X-mas Past,present and Yet to come. This episode is in the Complete Series box set.

Even tho she was not as well-known as her co-star of the hit Clueless Alicia Silverstone. BM is best known to horror fans as the heroine in the movie Cherry Falls a Direct to DVD movie about a serial killer that kills virgins trying to lose their virginity.  Her co-star in the movie was Micheal Bien of Terminator fame.  Her cause of death is unknown.  This and Don’t say a Word with Michael Douglas was her two only horror movies. She will be sadly missed.
