Horror Marathon Day 10

Black Rock

I am doing a service here, I am saving you all from seeing bad horror movies.  So here is another film that you can skip out on.  Black Rock.  It's barely a horror, in fact the blog that listed it as one of the best in 2013 must be high on crack. 

Am I supposed to cheer these women?  I kinda feel like they are jerks and I'm rooting for the men in this movie.  Not like Cabin In The Woods either, where the main characters are supposed to be jerks, I think the women were supposed to be sympathetic, but it was not working for me.  Sure the men turned into animals halfway through, but in the beginning, it wasn't either fault.  This actually would have been a good court drama if they went to the cops after the incident.

 I can't even remember how it ends, but it's boring and not worth it.  Luckily I was watching this while working on the latest draft of Pariah Missouri, so it wasn't a total waste.  www.pariahmissouri.com

Tomorrow I have a horror film I actually am excited about!

Horror Marathon Day 9

All The Boys Love Mandy Lane

At first glance, and maybe second, this movie is just another slasher film.  But I think they are trying to give a grindhouse feel to the film, although it's not that successful.  The main character, which make a good turn towards the end is beautiful, no doubt about that, but other than her looks and chaste demeanor, there's not much going on. 

 Her supporting cast doesn't make that much more of an impact other than the stereotypical teenage dipstickery.  The end has some interesting parts to it, but that's not enough to make it worth going through.  

So here I am doing you all a service, don't bother with this one.

Horror Marathon Day 8

Lords of Salem
Rob Zombie made a new movie and cast his wife.  Should you go see it?  It's actually not bad.  I liked the idea of music being a trigger for this evil awakening in people.  I like some of the visuals they were going for, it's an almost Kubrick look in some places, clearly films like The Shining were an inspiration.

There are however some moments of cheesiness and it's hard to shake those moments off, but overall I enjoyed the film.Not much more to say about it.
