THE END OF SLEEPY HOLLOW  

Posted in horror, Reviews, tv with tags , , , on May 11, 2017 by chrisdsav

A surprise hit in 2013 when it first debuted on Fox and then by 2017 so far removed  from its original source material to the point that they were not even in the town of Sleepy Hollow anymore. It started with Ichabod Crane in 1774 frozen in time Awakens in 2013 in modern day Sleepy Hollow, his enemy the famous Headless Horse Man. He teams up with Lt Abbie Mills an African American cop and the two are destiny  is to stop the apocalypse. This is not a buddy cop movie where the two have to fall in love the opposite they must work together  for the greater good. It started with such promised and great supernatural   thrills but spiraled out of control into convulsed plot lines and bad character development  choices. Cranes wife was resurrected  only to have her turn bad, Crane found out his abandoned son now 300 years old is the horse man War. There is a demon named Moloch messing with events and the reason behind all the weirdness in the show.

Tom Mison was always excellent in the show as a man out of time Orlando Jones who played Abbie captain called Crane Captain America for that reason. Nicole Behar in plays Abbie and her and Tom had such amazing chemistry together I had not seen two actors work so well together since Mulder and Scully, ( I’m talking about two people the of the opposite sex). The and ways amazing Clancy Brown was in the series premiere but was killed off by beheading. Lyndie  Greenwood played Abbie sister and was a cool hard edged character the opposite  of Abbie who was the do the right thing cop. Katia Winter as Katrina Crane was ok and a good voice of the Supernatural trapped in limbo till she wasn’t and she went from Good witch to annoying bad witch. Just eye candy in In a corset, and that’s a shame considering the show had such great female characters. John Noble was Crane son Henry and I hoped they build a character redeeming arc for him but they kill him off and it drives Kat crazy Scarlet Witch style. The super talented and Sexy Nikki Reed played Betsy Ross as an old flame of Crane and a spy in the War in flash backs.

In season three they fight an Egyptian  god,……cuz you know New York and Egypt are so connected …and I have no idea what season 4 was about I lost it after half way thru season 3 but I know they killed Abbie. That was when fans lost the main female character on half of the shows two character act GONE. The only highlight of season 4 was my buddy Ace Marrero was in it, other wise I could not stay tuned in.

One thing this show did very well was history lessons with new twists with George Washington Benjamin Franklin and more giving them new twists on their connection to the main plot of the show.

This show had such  promise but when you have the writers of the Transformers and new Star Trek movies as its creators then you have a problem from the beginning. This show could have been Fox Answer to the long running Supernatural   TV show now ending it’s 12 th season in two weeks. The headless Horseman could be their recurring Villian in all his bad ass ness but he needed being a ro,antic interest for Cranes wife.

Stop trying to stick romance into every fucking show on tv, people do not fucking care about romance in television  as much as the producers think they do. Especially when the show is about a Headless Horseman.

It’s a shame they went the direction they did and made the show impossible   to follow after season 2 as even that had its problems.

Below are pictures from the Target Exclusive bluray set of season 1.

Feb March Horror Movies

Posted in ghosts, horror, Monsters, movies, Reviews, sci-fi with tags , , , , on March 17, 2017 by chrisdsav

Rings

Directed by F. Javier Gutiérrez WOw its been a long time since we saw one of these movies and now here it is, its better than part two I will say that lol, I know that’s not saying much but it is,. I think they try and do a good job recapturing the spooky gothic feel of the first movie. This film does have its problems and they expand on the back story of Samara a bit to much in this giving her a family and more sympathy and cant just seem to keep her a bad little girl who likes to kill people. It felt a little weird to have Johnny Galeki from the Big Bang Theory running around acting like a d bag professor I like the film but its not great, go watch the original Japanese films….sooo much better.

 

Get Out

I never thought I would find a movie from a comedy duo of Key & Peele to be so funny and ever though there are plenty of gags in the movie, this is a straight up horror movie. Directed written and produced by Jordan Peele and thru Blum House studios which is making waves in the horror community similar to Lions gate did years ago. The story follows Chris Washington played by Daniel Kaluuya  goes to his girlfriends parents house for the weekend to meet them and discovers the other people there of color are acting like zombies most of the time. He cant figure it out till his TSA buddy tries to look into the disappearance of a track star from a  few months back. When you do discover whats going on it puts a new meaning to the phrase WHITE PEOPLE BE CRAZY

Kong Skull Island

Giant Monkey goes SMASH!!!! Yup that sums up the movie. AND IT FUCKING AWESOME. The US has had three Major Monster Movies and they have been hit or miss, Pacific Rim great film loved by fans and critics but huge disappointment at the box office. Godzilla (btw stay till the end credits all I’m going to say) was good and a great special effects film with a decent story, but barely had the big G in it. I love how King is in every part of this movie and the human character are not dll and boring like they are in Godzilla. You could also call this the Guide to the Marvel Universe with Tom Hiddleston ( Loki) Bree Larson ( Captain Marvel) and Samual L Jackson ( Nick Fury) John C Reilly  (Nova Corps Commander) being in Marvel films. Go check this film out its a great action movie and one of the best movies of the year so far.

 

January Horror 2017

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.
