WOW there were a lot of Horror movies in 2017 so far one a week and with more coming in February I thought the best way engage the audience about my thoughts would be to take it month by month. I am going to make some videos dedicated to the franchises we have out Resident Evil, Underworld and this weekend The Ring.  Stay tuned for those soon. All movies are playing at the Black Stone Valley Plaza in Millbury Ma off of rt 146  and other theaters around the country. 

UNDERWORLD BLOOD WARS

mv5bmji5njk0ntiynv5bml5banbnxkftztgwnju4mjy5mdi-_v1_sy1000_cr006741000_al_

When I heard this female led action series was going to be directed by a Woman I was very excited BUTTTTTT Anna Foerster really didnt make this movie unique or better than the last. In fact she seems to ignore things set up in part 4. Kate Beckindale returns in what has become the most tired worn out Vampire franchise since Sparkle Boy and Cock Tease Girl, Its so heavy on the CGI and bland plot line over the top action and not in the John Wick way. Plots are dropped and the more interesting characters are killed off. Its Nice to see Kate back in leather again but I don’t need to see another one of these films again. When this first started I was so excited and I loved the dvd when it finally came, but as the series went on it got worse and worse.

The BYE BYE MAN

Don’t say it Don’t think it Don’t Say it Don’t think it……yeah just keep saying that over and over and over again. What a great idea but executed so badly. Another movie with a FEMALE director this month Stacy Title and I would be very happy if it was not so bad. Doug Jones is her saving grace but he barely does anything in this movie . Carrie Ann Moss shows up as a detective trying to investigate what is going with these three college kids who are being manipulated by this Bad Bad Man and she is USELESS in this movie. Her characters has nothing to do. Pass on this one.

SPLIT
Of all the films I thought would be the worst was one of the best SPLIT is a decent thriller by M. Night Shyamalan  This was a decent portrayal of a split personality disorder. James McAvoy really shows his acting chops in this movie developing the different personality of the people inside Kevin. The onl;y problem I have is I wish we could have seen more of those other people as we only get maybe 7. The main character from last years The Witch and Barry, Anya Taylor Joy is really showing showing she is  becoming the IT girl of Hollywood. There is a HUGE connection to another M Night film, I hope you all caught it and there are other Easter Eggs in this film worth checking out. 

RESIDENT EVIL THE FINAL CHAPTER 

reinternational

Finally its over hopefully, I think so who knows Friday the 13th had its FINAL CHAPTER and he WENT TO HELL and we still got more Jason movies. I don’t know what Paul WS Anderson and his wife Mila Jovovitch are doing when they are making these movies. It opens In DC where we left the last film but with characters missing like Leo and Ada Wong and a powerless Alice with NO EXPLANATION of what happened. There is a movie between them and we never saw it. Claire Redfield shows back up with no mention of her brother Chris….he must have been making Prison Break the mini Series and DC Legends of Tomorrow. I like Ali Larter and live seeing her in things, I been in love with her since Final Destination, but this series wasted her as an actress. If this is what we call acting fuck this, this film series is just hear to suck money from you cuz people are too stupid to stop seeing them. You want a great Resident Evil Experience go play Part 7 Bio-hazard of the video games series. Trust me it will be well worth the money

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.

Late Summer Reviews

Posted in entertainment, Halloween, horror, Horror Movies, Reviews, slasher movies, thriller with tags , , , on September 2, 2016 by chrisdsav

31

Rob Zombie’s new movie is GOOD its original in some ways. It’s like the Dangerous Game and he mentions this in the making of Q&A at the end of the movie. It’s not the crazy over the top nutty film that was Lords of Salem. I would compare it to The Devil Rejects with a more beginning middle and end. A group of friends get capture on Halloween night by Malcolm McDowell and his aristocratic formal wear wearing psychos. They are ten forced for the next 12 hours to play 31 and have to survive a death maze of killer clowns. It’s a huge list of who’s who in his movies with returning favorite Sherrie Moon Zombie and Meg Foster  and Jeff Daniel Phillips. I’ll do a more extensive actor list in another post about Rob Zombie actors. This is Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 meets the Running Man. If you love his music and want a decent not so over the top action flick for Halloween, then check out 31 you won’t be disappointed.

Don’t Breath 

From the team that brought us The Evil Dead remake comes a movie so intense and with such a crazy secret it makes you rethink anything you didn’t like about the Evil Dead. Three friends try to break into the home of a Blind Gulf War vet and get more than they bargained for when he knows his home so well he can pick them off one by one. Stephen Lang is fantastic in this role as a the hero/villain/ not sure what to make of him after you learn what’s in the basement. I don’t want to give too much away but the best scenes are in the dark. You see the characters really trying to adjust to the darkness with their pupils really wide eyed and trying to find light it makes for an eerie experience that makes you feel like you’r there with them.

Kubo and the 2 String

That same studio that gave us Paranorman and Coraline and Box Trolls delivers another amazing weirdly done but still kick ass stop motion animation movie. This time the Art Director of those previous film Travis Knight directs this cool little film. If I had to rank Kub it would come behind Paranorman as my favorite from Laika. A boy goes on a journey to stop his grandfather by reassembling an ancient armor worn by his late father. Along the way he meets a Bug Night and a monkey and fights his even twin aunts played with such creepy voice over by Rooney Mara. They have those V for Vendetta style masks that look super creepy. Matthew McConaughey and Charlize Theron are fantastic  as Monkey and Beetle. ” If I’m called Beetle and your Monkey why is he not called Boy?” Best line in the movie.  The newcomer played Art Parkinson who plays Kubo is really good in his role.

My only problem with this movie and the other two above is NO ONE IS SEEING THEM we just want to be spoon fed fuckign Ghostbusters remakes like mindless drones who cant think for ourselves. What the fuck go see Kubo its an amazing story with great characters and not talking fish finding each other which we saw 12 years ago. 31 and Don’t Breath are original horror movies but nope lets go watch the same stupid crap Blair Witch movie coming out in two weeks over and over again. Get off your ass and support some art.

All these movies are playing at Blackstone Valley Cinema De Lux in Millbury MA.

Ghostbusters

Posted in ghosts, horror, movies, remakes, Reviews with tags on July 18, 2016 by chrisdsav

The movie is not good BUT its not RoboCop or The Nightmare on Elm Street Remake.

MV5BNzAzODQ1NTk4OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwODIwOTIwODE@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,674,1000_AL_

I’m not going over the plot of this movie its the same as the last two. The jokes fall flat and people seems to be zombies going to this movie so glad they have a Ghostbusters movie and not even caring how bad it is. Why are people laughing at this movie. Its one giant fart joke from beginning to end./ You have a villain that is the worst example of screen writing ever. He is a whiny little mommy boy bell hop who feels society owes him something. This is not Gozer or Vigo at all. The special effects look like crap they look like something from that Disney Haunted Mansion movie. So much Blue CGI it looks like garbage. I was so board watching this I could not wait for it to be over.  Leslie Jones was the same two jokes a loud screaming Black Woman, Melissa was so toned down in this movie,  but made the typical  Fat GIRL joke of the movie, as the one who loves food and complains how her food is delivered all the time. Kristen Wig tried to be the straight woman and it came across as boring. Kate McKinnion as the inventor was quirky and weird and funny ill give it that.

The men are all cowards and ass holes and morons in this film. Not one great character exists among them. I don’t know why Chris Helmsworth the receptionist  was written as such a moron.  The cameos by the original cast are a mixed back Murray looks board walking thru his lines and Sigourney Weaver seems the only one interested in being in the movie.

This was a soul less attempt at a cash grab and that’s all. It made money guess what The Back to the future and Gremlins remakes are coming and they will suck as much some as the past remakes we have had did.

Review – Ghostbusters

Posted in ghosts, horror, remakes, Reviews with tags on July 14, 2016 by chrisdsav

NEED TO CLARIFY BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE LOSING THEIR MINDS

My Friend and fellow film critic who knows his films puts his review on Ghostbusters,  make it your opinion don’t be afraid of what people think of you over a movie. ITS ONLY A MOVIE.  ( go look up people calling out and miss using the words sexism and anti feminism to describe their stupidity on the internet. If you don’t want to go see this movie, that’s fine you don’t have too. People like James Roulf the Angry Video game Nerd and Andre Black Nerd Rant were attacked because they were one way or the other about this movie. To be labeled a sexist or anti feminist cuz you don’t want to see it is so …aaaghhhh  )

FILM REVIEW
GHOSTBUSTERS
With Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth. Written by Katie Dippold & Paul Feig. Directed by Paul Feig. Rated PG-13 for supernatural action and some crude humor. 116 minutes.

Why are we getting a GHOSTBUSTERS remake (or “reboot” if you prefer)? For no good reason except the studio owned the rights and they could do it. It beats coming up with something original, right?

The movie is a mess from start to finish, not counting the green slime. From the opening jokes that fall flat in quick succession to an incoherent third act that has so many loose threads that a musical production number gets dumped into the closing credits, it’s clear that the people in charge had no idea what they were doing. Putting director Paul Feig in charge, perpetrator of “Bridesmaids,” “The Heat,” and “Spy,” guarantees that the comedy…
