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.

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.

Horror Flick of the Week: Frankenhooker (1990)

How can you not love every single Frank Henenlotter masterpiece? From the ridiculously demented Basket Case trilogy, to the almost ethereal head trips in Brain Damage woven with a shoestring budget? Not to mention Frankenhooker has one of the coolest vhs covers ever. The button on the front, when pressed, screams the iconic line ‘Wanna Date’ that will haunt you for the rest of your life–after you watch the movie, of course.

Seriously, though, I’m not gonna lie. This is Weird Science meets Jack the Ripper. It’s Frankenstein meets Valley Girl. It’s just fun. James Lorinz (the poor man’s Andrew McCarthy) isn’t the greatest actor ever, but I have yet to see a movie where he wasn’t absolutely charming with his silly characters and over the top screen roles. Patty Mullen is just as great (and I can’t recommend Doom Asylum enough if Frankenhooker grabs your attention). Start October off right with Frankenhooker, and maybe finish it off with Slime City if you’ve got a strong stomach, but do not pass this movie up!

Drive-in Trailers: Anthology Horror

Sometimes you want something besides a full-on horror film. You want a taste of several things. A creepy cornucopia. A vicious variety. A -something something alliteration scary-. That’s where anthology horror takes the cake. I’ve always loved short stories, on the page and on the screen. Hopefully the following trailers (obscure and mainstream) can give you something new to watch this Halloween.

The first trailer isn’t a real one, from what I can tell, but anyone who hasn’t seen ‘Dead of Night’ is really doing themselves a disservice. It’s one of the best. Also, note that I adore all of the Amicus films, but it’d be a bit boring if I just focused on them alone.

Horror Flick of the Week: 1922 (2017)

Posted in Media, Movies and shows, Trailers, Videos and Clips with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2017 by ranranami

I swear I’m not trying to be King-centric this month, but I just watched this movie yesterday and it was amazing. It’s on par with the absolute best film adaptations of King stories, and miles ahead of the worst ones (I’m looking at you ‘Sometimes They Come Back Again’ and ‘Maximum Overdrive’, even though I secretly love you both.) This also may be the first Netflix original I’ve recommended on here, which actually makes me think I’ll have to do a short list of must-see Netflix horror later.

1922

After the establishing sequence with the cracking walls, I was hooked. Ghosts. Rats. Guilt. Murder. Greed. There’s so much atmosphere, powerful direction, fantastic acting and cinematography. Thomas Jane was unrecognizable, and he really earned a lot of respect from me for his performance. He is what ultimately makes this dark horror, about a man living a hard life of his own accord and destroying it spectacularly over the course of one year, through a combination of his own choices and reaping what he sows. 1922. If you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself a favor and watch it tonight.

Drive-in Trailers: Hospital Horror

Posted in Media, Movies and shows, Trailers, Videos and Clips with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 19, 2017 by ranranami

 

 

I’ve been fortunate enough to never need surgery, but I think a vast majority of us have had to make a few trips to the hospital for one reason or another, and it’s never fun. But imagine how much worse it would be if you were dealing with serial killers, ghosts, or just plain crazy demons with their own idea of ‘medicine’. This week I’d like to focus on hospital horror trailers, and if you find yourself sitting at home right now trying to fight a nasty case of the flu…please, get well soon.
