Ok, the Cover of the DVD says Scariest Movie of the Year. Don’t believe that tag line for a second.
The Previews for Pulse, builds this movie up to something it really isn’t, and that is a shame. This isn’t a very good horror flick.
Pulse scores a couple of points for creepiness, and a unique story, but I never did get a scare. Some of the effects are cool, but by the end I of the film, I was pretty disappointed.
This movie pulled down 20 million (U.S.) so that alone should tell you that this movie is a clunker. It may be worth a rental if you absolutely have to check it out. I doubt that you will want to buy it.
This movie could have easily been called “Night of the Living Slugs” (Watch them make a sequel, call Slither 2, NOTLS” lol!)
Honestly, this flick wasn’t half bad. At least it gets a couple of points for originality.
The cast is basically a bunch of unknowns, with the exception of Michael Rooker (Rowdy Burns, from Days of Thunder) . They do a pretty good job with the material they have to work with. The story and special effects are above average for a 2006 Horror movie.
This one is at least worth a rental. I enjoyed it!
The Abandoned is also part of the After Dark, 8 Films to Die For, Film Festival.
Sadly, The Abandoned is not one that I can recommend. This movie is very slow paced in places.
The story had potential, and enough creepiness to put this movie over the top, but it just never delivered the goods. The cast was pretty much a no name group.
There are a small amount of special effects, and gore but not enough to save this clunker of a flick.
I have seen better horror flicks that were direct to video.
Skip this one, I wouldn’t even rent it.
The Grave Dancers is one of the 8 Films in the After Dark Horrorfest that has a special one weekend viewing that started this past Friday.
I decided to check this one out, only due to knowing Dominic Purcell from Prison Break.I am ever so glad I did!
This is one of the better horror flicks I have seen in a long time. A decent story and some above average special effects make this one worth checking out!
It is a shame that this didn’t get released in all theaters. I am betting this one could pull down at least 50 million. Check it out if it comes out near you!
I first caught part of this movie on SciFi, and decided to watch the rated version on DVD.
I was greatly surprized by this flick. It is definitely a B-Movie, but a fun one nonetheless.
The DVD adds some cut scenes (mostly gore) and some nudity that was not present in the cable tv version of the movie. The premise of the movie is this:
A handicapped rock climber goes back to his cabin years after his injury to discover that the cabins in the area are being attacked by a bigfoot creature.
All campiness aside, this movie tries to establish itself with such small appearances by Lance Henriksen and Paul Gleason. The rest of the cast are a bunch of unknowns. The cast matters little though, the monster in Abominable is the star of the movie.
I enjoyed this movie, and while it isn’t perfect, it is one of the better bigfoot movies I have seen. It is definitely worth a rental!
I recently saw the remake of the Texas Chainsaw Masscare and decided to give the original movie another look.
It has been so long since I have seen it, I recalled very little of it.
I am proud to say that the 1974 version of he Texas Chainsaw Massacre is everyting a Horror Classic should be! More gore than most people are accustomed to seeing, and a story that gets creepier as time progresses.
If you have yet to see the original version of this movie, of which the prequels, sequels and remakes continue to be made, do yourself a favor and see this one first!!
It is a great horror flick!
