Hello Horror Lovers!

My apologies for not posting in about three weeks! I have been very busy with school, work, etc., so unfortunately I have been forgetting to post! I was also unable to get into my account for some reason for the past few days, that should be fixed now though.

I recently watched Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno, and enjoyed it quite a bit. It’s about a group of college students who travel across the globe to save the land where a Native tribe live from construction crews, and their plane ends up crashing and those who survive the crash are taken by the tribe. The tribe are cannibals so the students try to escape with their lives. There is a lot of gore, cannibalism, gross bodily fluids and nudity in the film so it is not for the faint of heart. I had been waiting to see the film for well over a year and knew a lot about it so I felt fully prepared, but I’m sure other people were shocked by the movie. I enjoyed it though, and would recommend it to anyone who isn’t bothered by cannibalism, gore or very intense films.

This scene always makes me laugh so I wanted to a share a photo of Michael Myers dressed in a sheet in Halloween (1978). halloween sheet

ATM

atmATM is a film that I watched on Netflix tonight from 2012. It is about three co-workers who are travelling home late one night after a work party and decide to stop at an ATM to take out cash in order to buy pizza. When they go to leave the ATM machine building, which happens to be in the middle of a parking lot with nothing around, they see a man standing in the parking lot between them and their car, staring at them. Afraid and unsure of what to do, they stay in the building hoping that this man will leave. As the man starts to terrorize them, they end up trapped in the small building, fighting for their lives. The film stars Alice Eve, Brian Geraghty and Josh Peck.

ATM is rated a low 4.6 on IMDB and is listed as a horror and thriller. What this film has going for it is a secluded space, darkness, a creepy bad guy and lots of suspense, which is always appreciated. The pacing of the film is alright, some of the characters actions are logical, although not all (haha), and the I think the actors are fairly good. However, the ending is rather dull and many things are not explained (I would say what but I don’t want to give away tons of spoilers). Overall the film is okay, and I can’t think of much more I can say about it. ATM is suspenseful, has a bit of gore and fairly good characters, but little explanation and a dull ending. I’ll give it a 6 out of 10. It’s just okay.

can't kill the boogeymanI found this on Facebook and had to share. You can’t kill the boogeyman…. Michael Myers is awesome!

“Houses don’t kill people. People kill people”

George says this in the remake of Amityville Horror.

“Can I rely on you not to get me killed?” “I guarantee nothing”

The nanny says the first line and Dennis says the second line in Thir13en (Thirteen) Ghosts.

Hello fellow horror lovers!

A few months back (possibly longer) I heard that there was a new Friday the 13th in the works, supposedly one that would be more of a found footage film rather than a remake or sequel. When I heard about it, it seemed to be rather up in the air, and I didn’t put too much thought into it, other than thinking a new film could be cool because it would be the 13th in the series. Now there appears to be a bit more information on it, including an estimated release date of November 2015. You can check out a page with a bit of info here: http://www.fridaythe13thfranchise.com/2014/12/new-friday-13th-to-have-more.html?m=1

I think I’m up for a new Friday the 13th, especially since I enjoyed the 2009 reboot. Can you handle some more Jason?
