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

Resident EVII : Biohazard

Posted in Horror Survival News, Monsters, Mutants, news, Video Games, websites with tags , , on June 14, 2016 by chrisdsav

Bio hazard was the name was the name of the franchise in Japan and now they are using it as the subtitle for the new game very interesting. Resident Evil 7 is a first person perspective that looks like its going back to its horror roots at long last after the last two game were so heavy on action. The connection to the rest of the franchise is yet to be seen. Who the person  SHE is refereed too is unknown. The creepy song played in the trailer is

You can hear the lyrically-tweaked version of the folk song Go Tell Aunt Rhody in the Resident Evil 7 debut trailer above. While the song plays, men explore a dilapidated plantation, haunting images flash onscreen and a wolf’s head decays in seconds. the song was originally recorded by Burl Ives.

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.

Mini Reviews Part 3-D Zombie Edition

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on February 17, 2015 by chrisdsav

There are no 3-D movies in this list of mini reviews but points to you if you can guess why I put that in there,

Dead Snow 1, and 2 Red vs Dead
I finally had a chance to see this trapped in the snow on Saturday afternoon with a friend before setting off for the 40th Anniversary of the Sci-fi Film fest in Somerville.
In the first movie a group of friends head to a cabin dig up some old Nazi gold and have to deal with a Zombie Army rising up. This movie has a plot similar to Pirates of the Caribean Curse fo the Black Perl. The Gold is cursed and the only way to stop the Zombies is by giving back the gold. The survivor learsn this too late cuts off his arm and then has the Zombie leader arm grafted to him. This helps the plot of part two tho as he is able to raise an army of dead Russians and with the help of a group of American ZOmbie hunters they turn the tide of battle and defeat the Nazis. The ability to raise the dead with a new power that each Herzog the leader of the Nazis and Martin our hero. It has a lot of laughs and is more horror than humor I would skip the last 5 mins of the ending to Red vs Dead its not worth watching and disgusting. Its great to see something done unique with Zombies. Even though we have seen Nazi Zombies before in video Games there are not that many films doing anything with them.
Both movies were directed by Tommy Wirkola, who also directed Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters.

Zombie Killers: Elephant GraveYard
DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE, I watched the first half and that was too much what a boring and uninteresting attempt at trying to be the Walking Dead. I interviewed the Director Harrison Smith, and he said he pleaded with the studio to reconsider and make something else. He thought the genre was too over saturated and his movie would be lost. If they made this 10 years ago , it would have been perfect timing.

The Battery
Another movie I recomend you avoiding, uninteresting and you get 40 mins of guys by themselves doing nothing but arguing and bitching and acting like children. I tried to like the characters and find some interest in this Zombie crap fest from Scream Factory, but alas I could not.

THE RETURN OF JOE DANTE

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on February 3, 2015 by chrisdsav

The director of Gremlins 1& 2 and The Howling had a rough few years he tried to get a movie done on kick starter and failed ( so did I, good to know I am in good company lol) But he’s back and with what looks like a great horror comedy check out the press release below.

Image Entertainment, an RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE) brand, has acquired all U.S. rights to the highly-anticipated horror comedy from renowned director Joe Dante.   Written by Alan Trezza (TV’s “Sanctuary”), BURYING THE EX stars Anton Yelchin (ODD THOMAS, FRIGHT NIGHT), Ashley Greene (TWILIGHT) and Alexandra Daddario (TV’s “True Detective”).  The film, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival, is expected to be released in theaters and on VOD in the summer of 2015.  Mark Ward, RLJ Entertainment’s Senior Vice President of Acquisitions for the Image brands, made the announcement today.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with legendary filmmaker Joe Dante,” said Ward.  “He brings a unique vision and style to BURYING THE EX.  We are confident that his fans and the genre community will embrace the film.”

BURYING THE EX follows Max (Anton Yelchin), an all-around nice guy, and his overbearing but incredibly beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn (Ashely Greene).  Their relationship takes a nosedive after they decide to move in together and Evelyn turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare.  Max realizes it’s time to call it quits, but there’s just one problem: he’s too afraid to break up with her.  Fate steps in when Evelyn is involved in a freak accident and dies, leaving Max single and ready to mingle.  Several weeks later, he has a chance encounter with Olivia (Alexandra Daddario), a cute and spirited girl who just might be his soul mate.  But that same night, Evelyn returns from the grave as a dirt-smeared Zombie and she’s determined to live happily ever after with Max …

Produced by Mary Cybriwsky (MIDNIGHT MAN), Carl Effenson (HIDE AWAY), David Johnson (THE PEOPLE SPEAK), Frankie Lindquist (REACH ME), Kyle Tekiela (A SISTER’S CAL) and Alan Trezza, the deal was negotiated by Mark Ward on behalf of RLJE/Image Entertainment and Cassian Elwes, CAA and Voltage Pictures on behalf of the filmmakers
