Horror Movie 5: Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever for me is a strange movie.  I’ll admit I love it when I’m drunk and just want to watch a fun horror movie.  That is probably because I end up falling asleep and missing the last third of the movie.  I know I’ve only just reviewed one cabin in the woods style movie…

Horror Movie 4: Dog Soldiers

Earlier today I wrote a review for Dead Snow for a site I write reviews for and I said quite a few things how that did not work as a movie.  Dog Soldiers is the absolute opposite of everything I said about that movie.  Dog Soldiers takes the Evil Dead cabin in the woods style…

Horror Movie 3: Alone in the Dark

So, for movie three of my Halloween reviews I chose to review Alone in the Dark, I know it’s a bad movie and I chose to do it so I could bitch about it.  The thing that I did not realise is this is quite a unique movie.  Bad movies can sometimes get better with…

Horror Movie 2: Brain Dead/Dead Alive

I think I should start this review by letting any American readers know I shall be calling this movie Braindead as in the UK that is how it is known.  In America it is known as Dead Alive but personally I prefer Braindead. Braindead is a true cult classic.  I’d go so far as to…

Horror Movie 1: Teeth(2007)

Welcome to horror movie number one in my Halloween reviews.  Teeth is a movie that takes America’s preoccupation with protecting a teenagers virginity to the limit.  Any males watching this movie should prepare to cringe because it features quite explicit mutilation of the one thing most men pride the most.  Yes their penis.  To put…

Halloween begins…

So, it’s the month of Halloween and I feel this blog is a bit empty. What am I going to do about that? for each day of this month up until Halloween I’m going to review a horror movie (maybe more in one day). So let the games begin… Be sure to like Pissed Off…

An American Werewolf in London

Now I’ll warn you ahead of time on this one, this will be a rant to end all rants. I’m sure all horror fans can look back and realise that moment they became hooked on horror.  No matter how small it is everybody has it.  For me it was An American Werewolf in London.  I’m…

Sorority Row

Some movies promise originality when they come out, they say they are going to be funny and scarier than any other movie in the genre. That is what Sorority Row promised. The signs of course were not good, being a remake of a horror movie? Hardly original. Then you have the cast, no real star…

Review: The Midnight Meat Train

One of the biggest crimes the movie industry has done in the last few years is over saturating the horror genre with mediocre and lazy movies to make money quickly.  They remake as many movies as they can so they don’t have to pay the rights for good movies, or somebody to write something truly…

Remakes… they suck!

Remakes; I hate them.  I hate them with a passion that cannot be matched.  I hate the fact that almost every day that more and more of them are coming out.  There is a question to be answered with this though, are remakes sometimes a good thing? First let’s take the “against” argument, that’s an…

Avatar

So, the latest movie of the moment finally has a trailer out.  I have to admit it looks good, the trailer does it’s job and makes you look forward to seeing the movie.  “Critics” and anybody willing to pay to see 15 minutes of an actual film have also got to see more of it,…

The Vampire Chronicles

When I read on Bloody Disgusting (http://www.bloody-disgusting.com/news/17082) that there may be a “reboot” of The Vampire Chronicles movies at first I thought it would be a good thing.  It would be good to see the Vampire Lestat on the big screen again right? Well I’m not so sure. The first thing that I disliked was…

Watchmen

Watching Watchmen was a unique experience for me.  I’m a huge fan of the graphical novel and I’d read all the news about the movie and what it was missing, but I still watched with an open mind.  I liked how a lot of the scenes were recognisable as being recreated from page to screen,…
