A true classic , the perfect slasher many have tried to emulate and honour it but none have bettered it.




While not as good as trick r treat still fun too be had with some decent stories and gore, even if the stories in the first half where better than the last half which some just got too silly.

Castle Freak. 2020.

A young girl blinded in a accident inherits a Albanian castle that belonged to her mother, she believes someone else is in the castle. When her friends come to visit they uncover something else about her family and the castle.

Second time seeing this version and really enjoyed it just like the first time, it does have the same blind character and someone creeping around in a bed sheet/bandages but also a extra added twist. This one seems to follow The Cult of Cthulhu very Lovecraftian touch with the dark Gothic castle and dark tone settings. The acting is done decently and nothing seems to go off the rails and decent steady pace.

Bride Of Re-Animator. 1989.

Doctors West and Cane decide to create the perfect woman while a police Lieutenant is looking into the hospital massacre that happened.

You have a homage to Bride of Frankenstein, Herbert West obviously being Victor Frankenstein and Dan Cane being Igor who really doesn't want to use the solution that Herbert created as we know what happens and even tries it on a dog. The acting between the two main leads is great. Mel Stewart plays a doctor who ends up talking to the head of Dr Hill who wants a new body. More Laughs and more gore, Decent sequel.

Is Beyond Re-Animator any good??

Guess no-one took any of that shit seriously the moment they set eyes on slasher guy frothing at the mouth in that peepshow booth. Perhaps the most enigmatic of the nasties, which seems like a strange thing to say about a movie that blows its wad on spurt-laden S&M decapitation scenes.
Had a massive argument with a friend about this. He thought it was utterly dreadful. I felt it wasn't good, but there was something about it. The really weird editing and story jumps felt like the mind of a troubled individual. No grasp on reality.

My mate said it was just bad filmmaking. Maybe he's right, but at the very least, future filmmakers should give it a studious watch.

Halloween Kills


Why did they film flashback to 1978?

Why did the cop not simply move closer to Michael Myers and shoot him instead of his partner? Michael was merely strangling the other cop.

Why was Laurie surprised at that firefighters would show up to her burning house? Surely, that should have crossed her mind.

Why did Michael and the firefighters fight off like a martial arts film? Did Michael learn a trick or two from Busta Rhymes?

Why was Nancy Stephens's Nurse Marion with Tommy Doyle and Lindsey Wallace? She was only in the opening moments of the 1978 film, and this disregards Halloween 2.

Why did Anthony Michael Hall play Tommy like that? Why did director David Gordon Green think that performance was a good idea?

Why did Marion randomly blurt "Evil dies tonight," at the pub?

Why did the town go crazy? Was this social commentary?

Why did the town chase the wrong guy into suicide? Surely they knew it wasn't Michael Myers, since minutes earlier they heard of him in the other side of town.

Why does Marion say "This is for Dr. Loomis!" to Michael? Dr. Loomis shot Michael, and tried killing Michael. Michael did no actual harm to Loomis. Loomis died of natural causes.

Why does Laurie Strode say that Michael is the "anchor that divides us?" The entire town joined together to become crazy on their own volition.

Why does Laurie say that all this craziness is Michael's "masterpiece?" I thought that the filmmakers had stated that Michael was just some simple killer.

Why does Michael turn into John Wick?

Why did Danny McBride think this was a good script?

Why was I laughing and having a good time? Why was I hoping for Halloween Ends? Oh, yeah... Alcohol.

Otherwise, don't bother.

Why was 2018 made, when it was nothing more than an inferior remake of H20?
