Everyone posting memes on who's the best vampire. I've seen lost boys references twilight references etc. But y'all have it all wrong best vampire is the master in the strain series #horrorshows#horrorfilms
A pair of genetic biologists succeed in splicing the DNA of various creatures with that of a human being and the resulting life form begins to take over their lives as they try to hide their secret experiment. Splice is very much in the old "mad scientists play God and reap the consequences" school of horror stories, giving the Frankenstein formula a modern sci-fi spin. In fact the story interestingly stays away from the man makes monster idea for the early stages, preferring David Cronenberg style psychological horror, particularly during the rather disturbing Mommie Dearest sequence and when the bizarre sexual ambiguity of their creation becomes apparent. Disappointingly it soon settles back into the usual creature feature for an overly predictable finale which is a shame because it was actually starting to explore some interesting ideas. The production design is a little suspect (baby Dren looks suspiciously like an oven ready chicken with a rabbit's head) but Brody and Polley are as watchable as always and it's weird enough to maintain the attention for the duration, but it's nowhere near as inventive as Prometheus which covered a lot of the same ground.
Devil opens to find five Philadelphia office workers filing into the elevator of an inner-city office building. But a typical day at the office takes a sudden detour into terror when the elevator becomes stuck between floors, and the passengers discover that the Devil does exist, and he's standing right before them. As emergency workers work frantically to free them, secrets are revealed and the passengers realize their only hope for survival is to confront their darkest sins in front of the others. Devil is a well written and shot horror which is doesn't outstay its welcome. A film which is difficult to shoot works really well despite not having the best cast. The tension built between the group of people was outstanding and you felt there fear every time the lights went out. Around the corner came a chilling surprise whilst it didn't throw too much of religious agenda at our faces. Overall this movie worked and although it wasn't executed to perfection it has a nice amount of touches and twists of intelligence to heighten your nerves.
Just watched Wish Upon, which I didn't give the time of day before because everyone hated it. I could sum it up by saying that it's campy fun and I had a blast! A highschool loser is gifted a Chinese wishing box that grants her seven wishes at a deadly cost. We've all seen this story before, but this adds a little Final Destination to the mix. Waiting for each person to die is good fun, and the deaths are gruesome enough on the directors cut. The movie has a nice swift pace so I was never bored. And Joey King tries her hardest to act her way through a rather undeveloped role. The film does ultimately fail in its script. It's so poorly written that it elicits unintentional laughter many times from the audience. In addition the characters are all stereotypes and very poorly written. What is anyone's motivation for their actions? Why bring up random subplots to quickly end them one scene later? This is a train wreck, but it's seriously so enjoyable to watch. Being a diehard Drag Me To Hell and Slither fan, this is my cup of tea. I can't say that about everyone else though. Check it out if you wanna have a good laugh and a good time making fun of a bad movie.I give Wish Upon a 5/10. #wishupon#horror#horroraddict#horrorfan#horrorfamily#horrornerd#horrorjunkie#horrormovie#horrormovies#horrorfilm#horrorfilms
This is a really underrated clown flick. So fair warning to those with coulrophobia. Just before Halloween, three young brothers alone in a big house are menaced by three escaped mental patients who have murdered some traveling circus clowns and taken their identities.
Childhood fears belong to anyone who has grown up frightened by shapes, shadows or stories. Most of us have outgrown those fears. In our adult lives, we have discovered that reality of life is so much more terrifying. However, despite our courage and our rational explanations for the myths, monsters and things that go Bump in the night, there always remains that tiny voice which give credence to our doubts. But then our own powers kick in with the knowledge that 'only the fearful can know the true value of courage.' That is so true in this film called " Clownhouse. " Three boys, indeed brothers, Randy (Sammy Rockwell), Geoffrey (Brian McHugh) and Casey Collins (Nathan Winters)are growing up with the usual baggage accrued when raised together. When they become aware of their all too real peril, must put away their squabbling, bickering and petty animosities to deal with actual fears. Three violent, mentally deranged escape inmates from a Mental Insane asylum escape, murder some clowns, assume their identities. When the boys are left alone by their parents, they encounter these murderous fiends and realize they are like black phantoms out to kill them. Despite Randy's superficial bravado and Geoffery's convincing mental prowess, the audience soon realizes, it's Casey who has the greatest fear of all, due to his adolescent fear of Clowns. Famed for his other slasher films of the past, writer/director, Victor Salva establishes groundbreaking techniques with this offering. With a haunting theme work by Michael Becker, this movie holds itself together with suspense and drama. The three young actors do a fine job in their own right. So much so, it's safe to predict this film will become a Classic.
Got a great crossover episode with @paranormalalmanac coming out this Wednesday! And as an added bonus, it’s a movie that @mickeygalie and @jessicaissleeping do NOT see eye to eye on. What movie could possibly polarize these two? Find out this Wednesday on iTunes, SoundCloud, and Stitcher! If you can guess the movie from this little vague picture hint, give yourself a high five from us.

Dracula. 1931 (Bluray)
CAN YOU COUNT ON THIS TO BE THE CLASSIC EVERYONE SAYS IT IS?
Kicking off my universal monsters review series is Dracula. Just shy of 90 years old i found this hard to review. Films have moved on so much but i really wanted to see these movies as they are well known horror classics worldwide. The ancient vampire, Dracula (Bela Lugosi) travels from his gothic castle to london and preys on the women there. Its up to the famous Doctor Van Helsing (Edward Van Sloan) to uncover what is going on and to stop Dracula from his murderous biting spree. This film started off really well. It had a chilling feel when the characters were warning the real estate agent Renfield (Dwight Frye) not to go up to the castle, the misty scenes and sounds of wolves in the background. It had the feel of a good old fashioned horror movie. Bela Lugosi soon is introduced and his stare just owns the screen. Someone will ask him a simple question and you can't hell but feel a sense of chill when he stares at them with his cold look. He was the best thing about the movie for me. Perfect for the role. However as the film goes on i just feel as if it lost its way a bit. Sure there were still a good few scenes but I just found myself getting a little bored after a promising start. I love the way its filmed and the feeling i got from watching it but the story just let it down i thought. I don't know if i missed something here because this movie gets such high praise but i can only tell you my honest opinion. It may not have aged very well who knows. Maybe you should make your own mind up on this one.
Fun Fact : When Dracula and Renfield travel to London by boat, the scene is borrowed from a silent film by Universal called 'The Storm Breaker'
Best Moment : When Renfield is on the horse carriage going to the castle he looks out to see the driver is nowhere to be seen.
Best Quote : Renfield 'This is a very strange conversation for people who are not meant to be crazy'
Score : 6/10
