Merry Krampus Review part 1

Posted in Christmas, Demons, DVD, entertainment, Holiday, Reviews with tags , , , on November 30, 2016 by chrisdsav

In honor of the preview episode of Supernatural Creatures and LORE We will be covering A Very Supernatural Christmas. Talking about Krampus and Winter Pagan God’s. You can check it out here once the page is completed http://www.radioofhorror.com  I am going to once a week review one of the 4 Krampus films a week. Yes can you belive there are 4 of these fuckers. Fuck that shit…..but I digress. 

KRAMPUS THE RECKONING

A direct to dvd film by Ben Conway which is more Lifetime movie of the week than Evil Santa Claus flick. 

The movie opens with a mean couple who yells at their kids goes to bed fucks showers and smokes then Krampus kills them after being summoned by the mothers daughter. Then it becomes this little orphan summoner movie with police procedure and no Krampus. Krampus it self is so laughable and the film never looks like it’s taking place at Christmas unlike the he 2015 film KRAMPUS which was so full of Xmas cheer it was amazing how they mixed the Horror with the holidays. The daughter uses Krampus like pumpkinhead. Or since it’s the Holidays like a Jew would use a Golem.  

Written with his brother Owen Conway the script seems like it was another film and not a horror movie. The film is trying to make us sympathetic to Krampus carnage but not actually showing us the damn monter. Except in CGI and looking like something from a PS2 video game. 

Pass on this one and come back next week for another Krampus review.

Christmas Movies: GREMLINS

Posted in Christmas, DVD, Fantasy, Monsters on December 16, 2015 by chrisdsav

EVER SEEN IT. WHAT YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN GREMLINS. It’s seriously  one of the best Christmas movie, (yes FUCK ING CHRISTMAS  NOT FUCK ING HOLIDAY MOVIES. THIS CELEBRATES NO OTHER HOLIDAY OTHER THAN  CHRISTMAS)
Staring Zack Galigan, former guest of my show and Phoebe  Cates. Howie Mandel and Frank Welker (Megatron from Transformers, Doctpr Claw from Inspector Gadget,and several hundred other voices) provide the voices for Gizmo and several other Gremlins.
Recently released in a magnet sealed case for its 30th Anniversary  last year with all new bonus material, it’s a great film to check out or watch again.

The sequel  Gremlins 2 the new batch is also on blu ray and kicks ass.

Adam Green and Joe Lynch did a great fan commentary  with Zack last year for Christmas, you can check out the link here

KRAMPUS

Posted in Christmas, Comic Books, Holiday, Monsters, movies on December 1, 2015 by chrisdsav

Ah it’s Christmas  time, that time of year when you say Merry Christmas  to someone they say FUCK YOU. Or they tell you how offensive Christmas is to them. It’s also a good time for a Christmas  Horror movie and this year we have Krampus, Directed by Michael  Dougherty from Trick r TreAt. This movie comes out this Friday Dec 4th (Dec 5th begins the annual Krampus celebration in Pagan cultures) . I can’t wait the trailer looks great and we have needed a great Christmas Horror movie. When was the last time we had a great Horror Holiday movie, Season 3 of Supernatural , A Supernatural  Christmas Special that’s when. A boy makes a wish and summons the demon who comes on Christmas eve to terrorize and abduct the naughty  family members.

Krampus is basically anti Santa Klaus a very unknown creature in German Pagan lore. He would kidnap bad children and beat them with branches across their butts. Krampus has been around since before there was Christianity according to some scholars. It was around the 17th century that he was recognized as much as Santa Claus. It was in the 21st century  that popular  culture  made him famous.

Now only in the last 10 years has Krampus risen to fame. I can’t remember  seeing anything about this creature in any form before now. Jim Balent’s Tarot Witch of the Black Rose has fought the creature on three occasions the most recent being last week in issue # 95. Even bringing  in a female Krampus.

image

There is also a Krampus comic book tie in to the movie which came out last week, Krampus the Dark Spirit of Christmas.  He’s become so popular  I’m surprised Marvel and DC have not had him fight Doctor Strange or John Constantine yet. I’m sure it’s only a matter of  time before they do. In Christmas Horror Story Krampus shows up, there is a movie coming soon Santa vs Krampus. The guy is getting around. on Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc he showed up to terrorize  bad children but of cource that was a crook in a costume. RL Stein’s The Haunting Hour tv show also had a Krampus. I really wish the Real Ghostbusters back in the 80s had one as well.

I think it was American Dad who first introduced  me to the idea of the creature. Steve is kidnapped in Christmas eve by the creature.  I honestly can’t say I remember  hearing about him before American Dad or Supernatural. A neat idea that will get so over used we will be sick of seeing him on the big and small screen. Let’s hope there are more evil Christmas monsters we can use for the future. At the very least I never want to see a Krampus found footage movie.

The Nightmare Before Christmas Review

Posted in Cartoons, Christmas, Comedy, DVD, entertainment, Goth, horror, Monsters, movies, music, Video Games on December 24, 2014 by chrisdsav

Tim Burton’s classic film makes me feel a wee bit old as it can out when I was entering high school.
It’s 21 years old and still holds up today.
What a weird movie crossing Christmas and Halloween making it twice the Holiday movie.
The great Chris Sarandon play Jack Skellington the Pumpkin king of Halloween town. He wants to bring Christmas to his dark gothic little town and with the help of some mischief makers he kidnaps Santa Claus and takes over. But then has to rescue Santa from Oggie Boogie his arch nemesis.
Patrick Stewart does an amazing job as the voice narrarartor.
Catherine o Hare play Sally Jack’s girl friend and a great show of what hot dead chicks can look like….years later Corpse Bride.

image

Danny Elfmans score is amazing and really helps bring the stop motion animation to life. The movie is not directed by Burton but by Henry Selick. This is still Burton’s vision. I think at the time Burton was working on Ed Wood.

The visuals in this movie are really creepy and some great uses if stop motion the likes if which we don’t get very often. Hot topics really had a field day with the merchandising of this film and it continues today.
Chris would return to play Jack in two Kingdom Heart video games for Play Station2. A game series that crosses Disney and Final Fantasy.  And you thought crossing Christmas with Halloween was weird. These games were recently rereleased for The PS3.
The blu Ray has some decent bonus material with commentary and Burton’s short film Vincent which I a tribute to the late great Vincent Price.

The soundtrack was redone with great covers by Marylin Manson Fiona Apple Fallout boy and others.
This is a great film no matter ifn it’s Halloween or Christmas.

Tales from the Crypt/ Twilight Zone Santa Claus

Posted in Christmas, entertainment, SciFi, tv on December 19, 2014 by chrisdsav

I had my Layaway paid off at Toys R Us by some mystery people known as the Layaway Angels all over Massachusetts this happened. Its a Christmas conspiracy of comfort and joy. So in honor of them I thought I pay tribute to the man who doe bring joy to people but in a twisted fucked up weird horror way.

From two of the episodes, of two of the tv shows you didn’t think this was coming from. Why two? cuz there are two many fucking Santa Claus. Third place runner up is the Santa from Rise of the Guardians voiced by Alec Baldwin. O and Jack Skelington (Chris Sarandon), from The Nightmare Before Christmas but Jack is not really Santa in his movie he kidnaps the Santa and nearly gets him killed. O and one more The late Douglas Seale makes a great Santa in Ernest Saves Christmas. He oozes with charm and kindness.

First since we are a Horror show

Tales from The Crypt Season 1 :  And all Through the House

A greedy woman makes the mistake of murdering her husband while an escaped mental patient dressed in a Santa Claus (Larry Drake from Darkman)  outfit is on the loose.

A twisted screwed up tale with a murdering Santa is nothing new when this episode came out in 1989, as we had Silent Night Deadly Night in 1984.  It was directed by Robert Zemeckis the man behind Back to the Future an FUTURE Christmas classics like The Polar Express and The Christmas Carol staring Jim Carrey. He was also one of the creators of Tales and the episode was written by Fred Decker who directed The Monster Squad. You get a twisted tale of you better watch as this Santa will kick your ass and kill you to DEATH and beyond. I would like to point out the IMDB page is the Who’s who of this episode of character actors and I’m not going to name them all but you should check out what every one has done. The Wife is Marry Ellen Trainor from Goonies and The Monster Squad movies made by Richard Donner and the aforementioned Fred Decker two people behind Tales from the Crypt.

Sterling

The Twilight Zone: Season 2 Night of the Meek

Here is the opening narrative from Rod Sterling him self on this episode

This is Mr. Henry Corwin, normally unemployed, who once a year takes the lead role in the uniquely popular American institution, that of the department-store Santa Claus in a road-company version of ‘The Night Before Christmas‘. But in just a moment Mr. Henry Corwin, ersatz Santa Claus, will enter a strange kind of North Pole which is one part the wondrous spirit of Christmas and one part the magic that can only be found… in the Twilight Zone

The late Art Carney plays Henry Corvin who is a Santa Lush and finds a sack full of toys that what ever he pulls out of it appears to whom ever as what they wish for Christmas. HE starts delivering toys every where and spreading Christmas Joy. In the end something magical and corny happens, leading to his true destiny. Its a Twilight Zone episode neither scary or creepy but showed Rod Sterling had a  true talent for writing that would warm our hearts and shows the true meaning of Christmas.

Both episodes are on dvd now check them out and have a Merry Christmas
