Multi-Movie medley

The Borgman

2013  Not Rated  1:48 minutes via DVD   by Drafthouse films

Netflix’s description of this art house movie is

” a self important suburban family  gets a  rude awakening  in this dark fable with the arrival of Camiel Borgman to their neighborhood in which he infiltrates himself (and some friends) into their lives…is it possible he’s the devil?”

Oh K well that certainly was not a horror movie as I thought it was;, and frankly I have no idea what to call this (as far as a genre or subgenre. It’s pretty boring, maybe foreign I am not even sure how to grade this. Though being I was bored and there’s nothing at all interesting that goes on in it, for me I give it a D

 

We were the Mulvaneys

2002 NR 1:30  dvd

The mulvaney clan lived what most people would have considered the american dream in 1976  in the small town of Ephraim, NY. The movie is based on the novel  by Joyce Carol Oates of the same name. After an unfortunate incident involving their daughter (1 of 5  children all the rest boys) during a school dance, what was once golden family becomes very tarnished. The family as well as townspeople are very hush-hush.

I could not get into it Though if the guy that plays Zach the cause of the downfall he’s the baddie from the last few Resident Evil movies.   The movie doesn’t give me enough to tell you about. The description is really it, though if you are sensitive to certain topics there is a rape in this movie, although you don’t really see much.)   C

 

No Tell Motel

2012  1:24  Not Rated

Megan Walsh and her friends are stranded in the middle of nowhere after Kyle flips their RV. With no choice other than to spend the night  in a dilapidated, abandoned roadside motel that is haunted by the spirits of the former owners, one of which  is the vengeful child Angela.

This was so full of cliches it should have been a camp fest, or some side plot in a sharknado movie, but even that is  better and much more enjoyably entertaining than this! Just because I was able to watch the whole things  does not mean its good. I don’t think there was one likeable character

 

Scooby Doo and Kiss Rock and Roll mystery

2015   NR  1:18  Animated/Family

Oh wow! When I heard about this I so geeked out and just about drooled! I thought, now why didn’t they have them in the ‘new’ Scooby Movies back in the day. They were one hour episodes and had guest stars like The Addams Family,The Harlem Globetrotters,  the Munsters, Phyllis Diller to just name a few.  In this installment the Crimson Witch (or whatever she’s called) is  terrorizing Kiss land amusement park. Scooby and the gang is already on their way to see the Kiss concert that night in full make-up. The Legendary rockers are already there to solve the mystery themselves and the 2 groups team up to solve this cosmic mystery.

This was fun, for this adult fan of both Scooby & Kiss. (When I first Saw Gene Simmons as a kid on some TV show while Kiss was performing & Gene (the Demon) was sticking out his tongue I said  “I wanna be that When I grow up”. I’m not sure if that meant Rockstar, or a ‘monster’ but I guess you can go with monster in this case as when I dressed up as him one halloween I scared the crap out of some family in a station Wagon.

Parts had that clunky CG animation I hate in these modern episodes. I wonder what this story would have been like if it were made in the 70s like the rest of the scooby ‘movies’

Oh and we find out how ‘The Demon’ breathes fire.

I thought some of the voices sounded really familiar, I already knew Matt Lillard voices shaggy (I think since he played Shagged in the live movies) Worker #1 & #2 (which I guess are the ones fixing the coaster in the beginning) is jay & Silent Bob also known as Jason Mews and Kevin Smith. Darius Rucker (Hootie and the Blowfish ?) voices the destroyer  while Pemny Marshall  (Laverne & Shirley) played the elder while the Crimson Witch was  Pauley Perrette.

I think I liked this one better than the one they did with WWE.     B

The special features (on the rental dvd)  is ‘Are you scooby or shaggy’ with the actors that voiced the characters and Kiss Cut-ups which are only a couple  minutes long. There’s also Scooby Related Trailers.

 

The Best of the New Scooby-Doo Movies  * Scooby-Doo! & KISS: Rock & Roll Mystery

 

Necromentia 

2009  NR 1:24 Director Perry Reginald Teo  ? Torture porn

a grindhouse like anthology (only its really 2 stories connected together and can’t tell where one starts an begins. It even seems to me as though they started with what should be the end at the beginning. With that I’m not really sure this can be considered an anthology (as I think it takes more than 2 stories to do so, and by different writers at that)

The woesome Hagen played by Santiago Craig is  grief stricken after his  pregnant girlfriend dies and attempts to resurrect her body. Travis, (Chad Grimes) the link between the two stories and whose brother is wheelchair bound (not sure why)  and has a bad drug habit as well as morbid occupation comes to learn how to bring a soul back to its body. Bartender Morbius played by Layton Matthews seeks revenge on those who betrayed him.

Freaky Deaky! That thing could have been a cenobite in a hellraiser movie, and that attack on Hagen gory.  The pig show is pretty amusing and I have to say is my fave part (just funny in a way but at the same time not)

Not sure about the story itself but the ‘freak show’ is worth the watch.

Morbius’ story is at the end and the reason why I think this should have been shown first, but then that would ruin the little  mystery of the movie.

I’m not really even sure what to grade this.  I think I’ll go with a C or C- if I must.
