Drive-in Trailers: Under The Sea

Posted in Media, Movies and shows, Trailers, Videos and Clips with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 28, 2018 by ranranami

I think we can all agree that the world is a dangerous place, and anyone who steps foot out of their home for anything other than absolute necessities (food, water, bullets, Dolly Parton’s latest album) is a fool. That being said, let us make our way back to the topic at hand: oceanic horror. The spooky, the dark, and the non-shark related horror waiting in your swimming pool, bathtub, and not-so-friendly local beach.

I’m going to be at comic con in San Antonio today! As such, I didn’t have a lot of time to prepare a post, but in the mean-time while I take plenty of pictures to share tomorrow, here’s an awesome puzzle for a promotional poster – – the Bela Lugosi Frankenstein that never was…

Horror Flick of the Week: Salem’s Lot (1979)

Posted in Media, Movies and shows, Trailers, Videos and Clips with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 23, 2018 by ranranami

My friends, this is one of the greatest vampire movies of all time. It is one of the greatest Stephen King films. It is also one of the greatest made for TV movies. Not because of phenomenal effects (though they’re pretty solid and simple), but because of acting, writing, and story. It’s the perfect horror film.

Make no mistake, it’s pretty 70s as far as movies go, which isn’t a bad thing. It suits the Stephen King setting quite well (small Maine-esque town, quaint locals, stranger rolling in a la Something Wicked This Way Comes, and the gradual corruption/death of everyone he encounters). What’s more, who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned Nosferatu? I know I sure do! Do yourself a favor if you haven’t watched Salem’s Lot yet–which I can’t even begin to understand–you won’t regret it.

Drive-In Trailers: Slash and Trash

With the Halloween-crazy trend this month, I decided it might be time to tackle slasher movie trailers. What better way to pay tribute to the movie that started it all than to look at some of the many, many, many campy movies it inspired?

Horror Flick of the Week: Vampire Party/Le Dents de la Nuit (2008)

Posted in Media, Movies and shows, Trailers, Videos and Clips with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 15, 2018 by ranranami

I’m not going to lie. This movie is incredibly silly. It’s also quite fun. What could be better than a hodge podge of strangers going to an exclusive late night party on an island out in the middle of nowhere? What if I told you Tchéky Karyo plays an evil vampiric count with the most glorious hair you’ll ever see? Still not impressed? How about a magical spell-book that not only binds souls to Hell, but can also conveniently disguise you like a mariachi player or something else equally as ridiculous and fantastical?

Listen, it’s just a fun movie. It’s great for the Halloween season, and it’s dark with enough of a light-hearted twist to leave you with only very mild nightmares at best.

Halloween Playlist 2018

Looking for an eclectic playlist for your Halloween party this year? Not just music, but cartoons, movies, and comedic skits? Well, I’ve got you guys covered! I do not apologize, however, for my heavily 80s influenced horror. It just couldn’t be helped.

 

Horror Flick of the Week: The Baby (1973)

I’m not sure exactly how to describe why this is the movie of the week. Sometimes you just have to watch a different category of weird horror altogether, and sometimes – – that comes in the fan of an emotionally and mentally stunted man who was raised for decades as a permanent infant. It’s a bit of a thriller and a melodrama with a bizarre twist. Ruth Roman also does an excellent job playing the overprotective (and somewhat demented) mother, which is equally as entertaining as the rest of the movie, if not more.
