Why You Should Watch Slasher

Posted in Canada, horror, thriller, tv with tags , on October 17, 2016 by Kristina

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Slasher, it’s an eight part mini series written by Aaron Martin. This Canadian mini series was filmed in Parry Sound, Ontario and Sudbury, Ontario. It premiered in March of this year so I’m a little late to the party, but better late than never!

It stars Katie McGrath as Sarah,  Brandon Jay Mclaren as Dylan, Dean Mcdermott as Iain, and Steve Byers as Cam.

In the first episode we see Sarah’s parents get murdered within the first five minutes when her father lets a strange hooded man into their home on Halloween(1988), thinking it’s his friend. That whole first scene was both very comediec and gory. It definitely had a very campy vibe to it, which was why I knew I’d enjoy the rest of the series so much.

By the second scene it’s modern day and we see Sarah and her husband Dylan moving into the home her parents were brutally murdered in. Shortly after they move back to town, a bunch of copycat murders start to take place and everyone in town is a suspect. Including Sarah.

I won’t say too much more because I don’t want to give anything away. However, if you’re a fan of fun, campy, and kind of cheesy horror, you will love Slasher. You’ll get lots of laughs as well as gore. As I said, it’s definitely cheesy, but the writing is there too.

I haven’t been able to find out any info about the release of season two, but season one will be perfect for you guys to binge watch this Halloween! I hope you all get a chance to check it out! Remember, support Canadian horror!

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.

The Handmaiden

Posted in horror, Horror Movies, international, news, thriller with tags on August 4, 2016 by chrisdsav

New film from director  Park Chan-wook the man behind the thrillers Oldboy and Stoker

Starring Kim Min-hee, Ha Jung-woo, Kim Tae-ri and Cho Jin-woong

hand

His movies are always a real delight with great twists and thrills I am interested in this one coming out soon.

From PARK Chan-wook, the celebrated director of OLDBOY, LADY VENGEANCE, THIRST and STOKER, comes a ravishing new crime drama inspired by the novel ‘FINGERSMITH’ by British author Sarah Waters. Having transposed the story to 1930s-era colonial Korea and Japan, Park presents a gripping and sensual tale of a young Japanese Lady living on a secluded estate, and a Korean woman who is hired to serve as her new handmaiden, but who is secretly involved in a conman’s plot to defraud her of her large inheritance. Powered by remarkable performances from KIM Min-hee (RIGHT NOW, WRONG THEN) as Lady Hideko, HA Jung-woo (THE CHASER) as the conman who calls himself the Count and sensational debut actress KIM Tae-ri as the maid Sookee, THE HANDMAIDEN borrows the most dynamic elements of its source material and combines it with PARK Chan-wook’s singular vision and energy to create an unforgettable viewing experience.

 

“Expectations are fully met in Park Chan-wook’s exquisitely filmed The Handmaiden (Agassi),an amusingly kinky erotic thriller and love story that brims with delicious surprises.”

– Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

Seize the Night

Posted in Interviews, thriller, vampires with tags , , on May 6, 2016 by chrisdsav

The new Vampire film from Emma Dark who came on the show last year to talk about it is now here. A dark and gritty action Vampire film from the UL it looks amazing. Emma did a great job and the cinematography looks amazing too. Not only does Emma star in the movie but she also directed it giving her extra chops and giving us more kick ass female horror directors. YOU CAN WATCH the video down below and don’t forget you can also check out her interview on my show last year. I find this better than Underworld and look forward to more form Emma.

HUSH

Hush_2016_poster

Wow what a great movie it just came out on Friday from Netflix about a deaf and mute writer who is stalked by a serial killer. No big spoilers about the movie but its a hell of a cat and mouse game. Ever seen Wait Until Dark staring Aubrey Hepburn of Breakfast at Tiffany fame? She is a blind woman who is not aware of the people in her house trying to find something she acquired by mistake. You will love this movie if you like that one. A great performance by Kate Siegel and Directed by Mike Flanagan (Oculus, If I wake). You will get a great creepy movie, watch it in the dark  if you can.

SCOUTS GUIDE TO THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

A fun horror comedy that had no right to be as silly and fun as it was. Everyone is trying to recreate the success of Shawn of the Dead and it seems only Zombieland really did meshing the Zombie Comedy Romance plot. A group of teenage high school boy scouts on a retreat discover people are turning into Zombies. They cowboy up with the skills they acquired as Scouts to help save their town. Directed by Christopher Landon ( Producer/writer of Paranormal Activity 2,3,4, and the Marked Ones) This was better than I thought it was going to be out dated stupid silly toilet humor jokes and Zombie strippers full of gore and blood, if that’s what you enjoy check it out.

10 CLOVERFIELD LANE

Did you think you were getting a sequel to the 2008 film. This is in the vein and related by the smallest detail. A woman played by Mary  Elizabeth Winstead is run off the road by John Goodman and taken back to the bunker and told their is a bio hazard attack and she has to live there now. Also in the bunker is the guy who helped build it played by John Gallagher, Jr who also plays the stalker in HUSH.   You really believe  his story until you find out a secret. I wont spoil it but you and every one else should go see this movie. If you didn’t like the shaky camera stuff you get in the last one then don’t worry its not here. this is a thriller that does become a sci-fi movie so there is a bit of a hint of what you think is coming.
