MIDNIGHT MASS


See the source image

6-8 episodes

I was going to skip watching then my aunt told me what was in it so I will try to stomach the religious kool aid with A little bourbon, my new kitty and my spiritual books (print and kindle) in hand.

An Isolated island falls prey to both evil and unholy evils in this horror drama written and directed by Mike Flanagan. The story opens with Zack Gilford (From Friday night Lights) plays Riley Flynn an alcoholic who is sentenced to jail for DUI manslaughter. When his time is up and returns to his costal home, he finds many have left the area, a depleted fishing industry after an oil spill a few years back and at the same time…

The community is visited by Father Paul who is filling in for their ailing pastor. The new priest offers to start AA for him there to save him the ferry rides, he learns the priest is lying about something.

Faith vs Fanaticism.

13 Event Horizon

This was a recommendation from Darren Van Damn on Flick connection and was o HBOMax. I got through the whole movie whose storyline is that the spacec ship of the title, when it went behind Neptune it was lost. The Visual FX from what I noticed seems to have stood the test of time. The first half hour went fast. Didn’t realize how fast time had gone by. Sadly I was not crazy about it I’d rather have watched one of the alien movies yet again) But at least its something I have not watched before.

Exorcist 3

PRIME video Another one Recommended by Flick Connection and for the first time i came out with 2 movies was not crazy about. THis one I feel was a waste of my time guess I’m just not a fan aside from making “Exorcist Soup’ joke when mom makes pea soup. I could have at least started watching Midnight Mass. So skip this and just watch the original.

The Legend of Halloween Jack

Prime….. English Some trial of a guy I think was supposed to have killed some kid. The guy gets out of it because the ‘arresting’ officer didn’t read him his rights. So the guys kill him and bury him . 1 year later one of them goes to the spot and kills himself.

So far I’m bored and hope things pick up when…….NOPE not even the kills can help this That was awful slow trying to stick the guy with the pitchfork. The ‘mask’ of Jack is lame not even scary reminds me of Jack in the box restaurant character. Why did that guy kill her for.,, Oh well will have to see how I feel after I watch American Horror Story…. (never went back to it)

Another Life s.2

2020 Ken Jeong, Daniel Gillies, Temuera Morrison,Mark Coles Smith Supposed to be set in australia

Lets hope there’s some scary looking aliens in this. Its been 2 years since a mothership arrived. Now not sure if they ever mention where they are from but there’s what seems to me more than one alien species.

Ghost stories

4 intertwined. Tales. Indian (?) Netflix org.

I think the title of the tale is shown at bottom right before the story comes on.

A caregiver taking care of an elderly woman who keeps saying her son is there, learns otherwise. The son was supposed to have coe to take care of her. The caregiver figures he left in the morning. Never saw that ending coming!

An aunt who looks after her nephew after school is now a Mom to be. The nephew is jealous of the baby. She’s having weird dreams maybe even hallucinations… Or are they?

A man shows up in smalltown and the first he meets are a boy and girl that say her father ate his father. The boy however never tells the whole story. Not sure what the ‘people’ are but one had fangs on the bottom but didn’t seem to on top…De-evolution??? I swear I just saw a caveman .or is that supposed to be a,werewolf? Either way this was a favorite

A creepy family who’s granny is dead but the grandson can communicate with her, they treat granny as if she’s A god. I sort of liked this one but at the same time not. Maybe it was in the way they set it up.

 

A Night of Terror:Nightmare radio

“8 Terifying talesto haunt your dreams” DVD

As far as the stories go, I think some if not all were better than some mainstream full length american movies.

Now someone that sounds Irish Is that supposed to be the board walk in lost boys?

A wife is annoyed with HER husband who “isn’t the only one having a problem with family life” His estranged brother shows up says he killed someone…which is in the car …. Then a couple of guys show up looking for the brother. Checkinng out the plot, apparently the person the brother hit is supposed to be the son of a local gangster.

DISCLAIMER

Most of my information I get from IMDB or Amazon like the summaries or casting credits.

Important Announcement


My mother back the end of August found out she has cancer. She had to have surgery to  remove what was there but was not able to remove it all, if they did she’d be paralysed on her right side.

She is currently undergoing radiation and its been very hard to get anything done for the house, never mind getting anything set up for the blog.

I will try my best to post, but anything published may not be polished, edited etc. If anything is published during this time it will likely be plain text unless I was working on it before this time.

I will try to keep track of what I watch for october, if I don’t get to note in the Horde of Horror page; (I’m sure i lost track posting summer watches) I will write  the list of what I watched this October once I get my Halloween watch on.

Don’t forget… Hocus Pocus 2 is now available on Disney +

 

Hope you have a happy Fall  & Halloween

Classic Cuts- Tales from the hood 1 and 2


 

The original starred Clarence William III, Corbin Bernsen, David Alan Grier (of in Living Color fame for back then anyway)

In this a funeral director tells four tales of horror with an African American focus to three drug dealers he traps in his place of business. The first

My favorite story from the original, was the one with the dolls

Not sure if the original’s soundtrack is still available but here’s the song list

See the source image

I was surprised when I came across Tales from the hood 2 on Netflix . The main story of this one is Robo Hell which is a twist like the original was. In Good Golly a couple of besties Audrey and Zoe take a trip to the Museum of Negrosity housing an assortment of propaganda. Audrey is there to purchase a gollywog doll for her collection, the doll is named Golligee . Which I think was the most memorable. The Medium a fake so-called psychic medium preys on the grief stricken and those that didn’t have closure. He is forced to do a séance which can go one of 2 ways. It will reveal how much of a fake he is, or he will summon those beyond the veil. Date Night is basically the falls of using Tinder and other dating apps and their predators. makes me glad I didn’t sign up, though now wonder if I should. Lol The Sacrifice was another that was very memorable. Unlike when you get a reboot or remake and so on, I was surprised I liked this one. It felt like it had all the elements that made the original what it was. So if you liked the ’95 movie you likely (I think) will enjoy this one. Back to Robo Hell this ended up my favorite of this sequel. Robo patriot which is basically an upgraded Robo cop, with a shot of Captain America. A mascagonist, racist asshole politician calls it R.I. ‘Real Intelligence as it learns 1st and 2nd hand. It goes from Captain Robot to looking like another Marvel character or property. When it senses a threat to America !!! I had to pause it just to write some of this up and(it was almost over but I just got excited) and found it a little funny (the very end of it) reminded me of someone else. What did you think? Tale from the Hood 2 Wiki In the first story we get a bit of Nostalgia, a special ‘guest star’ from the original movie B overall and an A for the Robo Patriot

I think this was form the original movie

Tales from the Hood 3

this came on Syfy, i didn’t even know there was a 3rd movie. 

Tony Todd IS in this one though and No wonder… its from 2020

 

To get away from the bad things TT and a little girl (grand kid?) duck into some old building where she tells him some stories. 

The 1st story 

as always some     is trying to clear house, but one family with a sick boy remains In the building which is supposed to be turned into a medical building of some sort that the area so very much needs.  The suit that visited them earlier hires someone to get them out and he’s haunted.

 

2nd 

Some hillbilly racist living in a bunker to protect his water . NOt sure what happened but I think its all in his head. A new type of zoo! with an American Racist Exhibit … I like this twist!

Story 3

a backup singer gets fired and is hired to be a paid to pick up blood. The old woman gives the singer a music box which she has a nightmare about which the story was predictable 

4 Tale of the thief and I’m pretty sure that was some voodoo curse laid on him through the news. Walk a mile in his victims shoes and feel the pain of the families.

Chaperones  Angels and demons so  I  guess he’s trapped between life and death.

 

I’m definitely not impressed with this one and can see why no one seems to like it. It doesn’t have the tone style and such the previous 2 had.  No shocks and thrills plenty of cliché and no heart and no gory joy. Poor Candyman Tony Todd… WHY did you take this … He should have played the mortician!

So far the chapters are short, well paced

“oz my boy sometimes I think this world would favours is nothing but a goddamn zoo.”
In front of oz on many screens were animals, all behaving very badly. Fathers really do know best, because the world was becoming a zoo , without cages.

No one seems to see the pattern of attacks, be it by city, or state the least.
