Snowbeast. 1977.

A ski resort in Colarado is besieged by disappearances and believe it to be the work of a wild bear when a body turns up clawed and some people think it may be a Yeti.

Another T.V. movie came my way and I didn't have much hope it be good yet I was surprised how enjoyable it was, the acting isn't spectacular but you go with what script you been given. Sylvia Sydney plays the owner of the resort who can't believe a Yeti is responsible until she sees it. The creature costume isn't the greatest as the budget must have been restricted, it was decently made and it is smart enough to knock over a set of tree logs, It's one i'd watch again.

Day 20



A young man takes a holiday to get away from his problems on is way there he meets a young woman who is going to the same place. It doesn't take long before it becomes clear something is not quite right. Could it be the menacing bikers or the creepy little dwarf or is it the creepy and mincing doctor played by Michael Gough who characters are always mincing. We soon learn that the doctor is experimenting on young people and turing them into a army of controllable zombies, he also has a thing for beheading people, not seen a film with so many beheadings! I really liked the dwarf 7/10



Love this film as mentioned elsewhere was not keen on it first time but it gets better with each viewing. A strange substance is found in a abandoned church so group of various science students there professor and a priest set out too investgate.

They soon learn they are dealing with something as old as time and totally and utterly evil . Mixing science with religion and the metaphysical this a fantastic a creepy little tale. 8.5/10




Day 21
Another brilliant movie from the master , a small town is about to celebrate its centenary but a terrible wrong preformed in the founding of the town is about too seek bloody revenge from a eerie fog. The film oozes atmosphere and is one of my favourites of Carpenter. 9/10

How watching color out of space.

Hellraiser IV: Bloodline. 1996

in the 22nd century, a scientist on a space ship tries to finish what his ancestors started by opening the puzzle box and out an end to Pinhead that has cursed his family since his ancestors created the box.

This one had me intrigued when it first came out on the history of the puzzle box and who made it then it went to present time and then the future, it did sound daft Pinhead being in space and looking at the world thinking the Garden of Eden, the acting may not be great except Doug Bradley, all Hail. The special effects and Make-up were done he even gets a dog. I'm with Shaun on a agreement first one will always be better, after this film (IMO) the franchise went further down the Sh@thole.

976-Evil (1988)



Hoax: Once you've been to hell, everything else pales in comparison!
2020 waves from across the room!

OK, so I'll get this out of the way right away, to enjoy this film you have to disregard any and all logic, because 976-Evil does not make ANY SENSE WHAT-SO-EVER.

Also, it's SO 80s, like if you thought John Hughes was 80s think again, we're talking perms, high heeled shoes with turned up jeans, boys with highlights and porkpie hats, dangley earrings, neon lights, fog machines... Oh yeah, why was the boys locker room bathed in green neon light with fog coming from behind the shower walls lol... dungarees with no shirt underneath! The list goes on...

Obviously I enjoyed this one. It was silly, the special effects were painted directly onto the negative, the make-up effects were questionable but it also has a parrot that shouts 'not on the couch, not on the couch' haha. I also have a soft spot for Stephen Geoffreys and his cute face. FUN!

I always enjoyed this one while not a patch on the first two I enjoyed it in someway more than the third and was far superior to what followed , but saying that might give them all a watch. I did quite enjoy the last one not that shit fest with the who eat all pies Pinhead.

I just looked it up, Dustin Diamond faked a sex tape, he used a double but imposed his face on it Stephen Geoffreys on the other hand did seem to have a bit of a career in the 90s staring in the sex industry before returning to horror films in the 2000's
