Friday Night Horror Corner

Tonight I decided to do an old movie.  A movie also discussed on the 18th Podcast.  A movie called Wickerman.  So sit back and enjoy the review Dreammachines.

 

Wickerman directed by Robin Hardy came out in 1973 starring Christopher Lee and a few other names.  But I’m no name dropper plus I don’t think anyone would recognize the other people in this movie.  The plot of this movie revolves around a police detective traveling to a small island to investigate a series of suspicious murders.  I’m sure you can imagine what happens next on this small island.  The plot line is notoriously thin but the atmosphere of the movie is fairly well developed for such a small budget film.  This low budget film seems to embody the heart and soul of what similar low budget films of today have lost, the ability to rivet the audience no matter the cost of production.  In my opinion  low budget films today have lost the ability to pull the audience in to tell the story correctly. 

Wickerman has all the frights and spooks to keep you going through the movie but don’t expect it to scare your socks off.  The story should be enough to keep you entertained and hopefully give you a real dose of authentic storytelling.  As for nightmares I would expect you to have an uneasy night but nothing to bad, probably just the dream where your naked in high school again.  Well, well pizza got here early.  Looks like a cold beer and a hot slice await me.  Also a nice scary movie with some friends and a couple of drunken laughs should be good times.   Till next Friday, Don’t screw with Jason’s weed man just don’t do it.

Friday Night Horror Corner

Hello Fiends and welcome to the first of Friday night Horror Corner. I’m putting this up here because I know lots of you dream machines love your Horror movies as much as I do. I know you’re tired of finding a good title and getting all ready to watch it and all you see is bad computer gen movie effects and horrid acting. I’m tired of seeing nothing but bloody knives and T&A…well not that I’m tired of seeing T&A I’m just not so sure that directors know how to put it into a horror movies anymore.
So without further ado I’m going to tell you all about some GOOD horror movies. Horror movies made like they used to be made, movies that are made with suspense and fear in mind. The kind of movies that will put you to bed with the lights on

DeathWatch

DeathWatch

Deathwatch a film directed by Michael Bassett and released Nov of 2002 is a movie set in WW1 Western front. I am not going to ruin the movie for you I’m just going to tell you that it’s a war movie with a HUGE horror twist to it. This movie has everything suspense, blood, and absolute shock. The ending of this movie twisted me for a few days I had no idea it was coming like it did. Watch this movie and I guarantee you’ll love it if you don’t I’ll post pictures of me in a clown outfit.
For a real exciting night curl up on the couch turn off all the lights make some quesadillas and grab a six pack of mad elf beer. Throw this puppy in the dvd player and turn the surround system to 11. I’ll see you freaks and geeks next Friday.
