The Taking of Deborah Logan


2014    R    Jill Larson, Anne Ramsay, Michelle Ang,Brett Gentile     70 mins    Horror, Mystery, thriller

So I thought this was just another cliche possession movie. Wrong!

This was a ‘blair witch’ hybrid a single camera filmed docu horror as well as times where it seems like a normally filmed movie. Because of  her fast progressing disease (she has dementia or alzheimer’s) she is either possessed or just remembering some things.

I watched on Stream Dor a free app I got for my kindle, which you can watch movies free. (Though sometimes in another language with subtitles or in English with some foreign subtitles.  I ended up watching a couple of movies (forget which) in Polish, one in which I had already seen before so that was interesting to me.

I don’t find this movie to be worth the time really (unless you are perhaps bored in a hotel room, everything is closed or you are just in the middle of nowhere)  I was jsut so tired I jsut really did not want to read and had nothing else to watch that was short. Now I know why Netflix doesn’t have it!

 

 

The Fun house Massacre


2015,  R    1:30      Horror ,   Robert England, Jere Burns, Clint Howard, E.E. Bell, Candice De Visser   (cast and more)

 

A nod to slasher flasher films Six crazy killers make for six times the fun.

UGH! The reporter looks  like she belongs in a bad vampire movie. Can you say wig from party city?

Doctor Who Joker alert!

The Land of Illusion Haunted park Fun House is designed on serial killers. If I remember right I do believe something happened with one of them on that land.  Curly Q’s death was too cool, actually got a reaction out of me!)

The bee girl has got sting, that is some revenge to all dentists (if you are one, sorry but one of your own ruined it for you when I was a kid..no apologies from me when you tell me to bite down and I do bite you! lol)

Cliche’s and nothing I haven’t seen before  (except Curly’s death) Oh yeah and that goth is more deranged than Harley Quinn.

There’s some bad to awful acting in it but was able to get through it

Well the Stitch Face Killer (the one that looks like a Goth Harley Quinn) just found the actor is born the day after me.

I’d give it a C-

Classic Cuts & Reject reboots~ Ghostbusters


GHOSTBUSTERS

The 1984 classic PG Horror Comedy starred

Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Rick Moranis, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts, Ernie Hudson

and I believe it was Bill Murray who uttered the famous quotes…

We Came We Saw we kicked its ass

(which I so wanted the button that said that but mom wouldn’t let me get it but then I was still in grade school)

 

 

 

 

This is still a favorite of many I even have the box set in my video library.

Why Ghostbusters is a great classic

  1. The comedy
  2. soundtrack
  3. the fx
  4. fairly quotable
  5. The cast
  6. plot (as silly as it was)
  7. The vehicle

The soundtrack is cool for an 80’s movie not that techno or new age stuff.  The FX still hold up, Slimer looks see through and not done by a computer (or however they did it back then) was he an early form of CGI? Was the Stay Puft marshmallow man a giant puppet?  Hard to tell, and honestly I don’t think I really want to know even if I am right. When in 2016….ahhh I’ll wait to make my statement about that reboot.

Aside from the fashions (80s fashion was a horror story in itself!) and picture quality, you cannot tell when it was made. It was Innocent Horror (or is that more Horror of innocence)

I don’t think you’ll ever be able to get this many good actor/comedians together as this had.

Come on the Ghost mobile was a freaking old hearse! I think the movie is the reason why I have wanted one as a car when I got my license!  You have the car part, then if you are tired just go in the back and sleep! (the question is to add a coffin shaped bed or not.. or maybe a Kiss coffin!

Ghostbusters. . DON' T CROSS THE STREAMS. WE CAME, WE SAW, WE KICKED ITS ASS!

Ghostbusters:

 

 Ghostbusters 2

Who you gonna Call?

1989   starring the original cast and Pete MacNicol

5 years after the original events the guys are out of business at this point doing birthday parties or  like Ray works at a book store, Egon doing studies and Peter some Psychic show.

After an accumulation of pink sludge has taken over the sewers, oozing out of pipes feeding off the hateful anger hostility  and violence of the New Yorkers. It bubbles up when people yell (and frankly looks like the bubbles in a lava lamp)  When you play music it makes the container jump around. If the slime touches you it makes well “Ray this stuff is like pure concentrated evil”

There’s this creepy little dude Yanos who I think is the curator of the museum and some BFD  (Big F**ugly Dude) in a painting named Vigo, who was the scourge of Carpathia from 1505-1610 16th century Carpathia was in a constant state of supernatural turmoil due principally to the despotic rule of Prince Vigo Von Homburg Deutschenforf a tyrant sorcerer and psychotic aristocrat.

Wow seeing the Twin Towers feels so weird now.

We are the Best, beautiful the ONLY Ghostbusters.

The music in this one was not as good as the original and I felt did not fit the tone of it.  THe only cool song was the one done by Bobby Brown. (who also has a cameo)

I always loved the part where the fur coat attacks the lady.

Not as many memorable or shall I say quotable lines aside from Slime time and Slime square.

Ghostbusters Fan Club:

In regards to the reboot….

they are saying its mostly guys but any fan of the original movie should have a problem with this new one. First off you have all women and aside from Melissa McCarthy who the hell are they? The trailers are not funny and  in hopes to save their asses, they had to go get Chris Hemsworth just so they could actually get some buzz for it and women like me to go see it. (My dear hemmi, as much as I love ya, it won’t work with me no matter how much I love my Aussie Thor…or how much if at all his shirt comes off) I’ll be waiting for video or cable! It won’t have the magic of the originals, and likely the CG effects won’t be cool as however they did some of the originals.

It’s OK to Not Like Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters Sequel Will ‘No Doubt’ Happen, Says Sony Executive

as for the Reject of a reboot

Image result for Original Ecto cooler box In summary… The ONLY thing I liked about the  reboot coming out was the fact they brought the ecto cooler drink back! (sadly without slimer on the packaging) but then again, after you read the review… it’s a good idea they DIDN’T put the new (or any) form of slimer on the containers~!

Ghostbusters 2016

Now the tagline or the sub-title of the movie is ‘Answer the Call’
Easy and simple… if you watched the trailer, that’s all you really need to see. All of what could have been funny (like testing out the ghost puncher.) Some of the jokes even in the trailer fall flat like the one with Patty jumping into the audience at the concert.
So this came on cable (so fast?)  and thought to give it a fair shot and I’m trying but so far I’ve missed  the first half hour to 45 minutes, guess I’ll have to catch it when it re-airs for the beginning.
First off, the girls weren’t funny, anything that might have been funny was ruined by the trailer being shown in every commercial break.  Chris Hemsworth and his stupid idiot of a bad secretary was the only one that was funny.
I will give the green demon  thing cool points, but it still didn’t have the ghostly look like the specters in the original movies.
It’s one thing to remake a movie or reboot (as this is more of) but i still spit on the graves of those who obliterated Billy D. Williams’ Original Song. I can only say as a would be Viking, You should be Blood-eagled, and  Buried alive before you actually die.
Bill Murray cameos as one of those people who de-bunk paranormal events. The chick with the glasses, s the only one I like and it’s because she reminds me of (I thin kit’s Spangler) from the 1980’s Cartoon ‘The real’  Ghostbusters.
Oh! the hearse  is pink in the spots where it should be red. Honestly all this feminism crap you’d think they’d choose something other than stereotypical pink.
Instead of the iconic firehouse, they are in a loft above their Chinese take out where the guy still has a problem getting there in a reasonable amount of time.
I don’t think you’ll have a problem recognizing the secretary from the original movies.
There’s a Jaws joke and Clark Kent Strip-o-gram (which just reading that makes me laugh)
Wait WHY is the ghost cloud green while they are shown close up as blue? How the hell does that work? I can understand the good ghosts being made as blue and the evil ones green maybe to show a difference but i don’t think i would look like a pure green cloud. (Though it is NYC and well… I find the city evil myself)
To me the best cameo was Dan Akroyd!  SO NYC
When Slimer showed up I wanted to cheer in glee but it came out more of a disgusted ewww gag  then a laugh as he tries to drive.
Now there’s a part where there are parade balloons in which Stay Puft now is, and reminds me of one of the characters in Nightmare before christmas. Now I know nothing about 5 nights at freddy’s other than I see small toys it seems in every store’s toy section… well from what I’ve seen of the toys.. Those balloons look like they belong with it, cause they are sort of scary in a maniacal stalker psycho serial killer sort of way.
Wait where’s the ghostbombs.. why not throw one down that whirlpool?  And Possessed Kevin I like more than stupid Kevin.
I get why they have the sub title (or tagline whichever its supposed to be) Answer the call  but
Paul… WHAT THE  Freig?!!!  is more like it!

Ouija Origin of Evil


2016, PG-13, horror, thriller, 1:39,  Elizabeth Reaser, Lulu Wilson, Annalise Basso

set in what seems to be the 1960s  a fatherless family pays the bills by holding seances and palm readings. The mother does the psychic thing while the daughters when not in school, help push the point across.

The mother comes across the new ‘game’ in a store and brings a board home to use as one of her tools. (You are NOT supposed to use them in your home!!!) The youngest starts talking to ‘a friend’ which is never good, even when she thinks her dead dad tells her how to help save them from losing the family house. After this she stops going to school as she’s the one the board works for best.

Once things hit the fan when the older sister finds little sis scribbling on paper on the floor of her room to her right while looking to her left, the sister (I guess its the morning after) finds the papers sticking out from under the bed when she gathers the girl’s things. She gives them to the priest (which I guess is the principal of the school) to find out what they say as they are written in Polish.

I think somehow the story that was told about this family was ‘fudged’ a bit. Of course it’s been awhile since I watched the original movie but something about the story of these 3 didn’t sound right. Also unlike the first which was a little creepy this was not even eerie or anything remotely ‘scary’

Lights Out


2016  PG-13 1:21  Horror  Teresa palmer, Billy Burke, Maria bello, Eric Heisserer, Gabriel Bateman, Alexander DiPersia

Well its not the most original as in a sense Diana reminds me of the Insidious demon and something else that has yet to come to mind. I’m wondering if this is based on some Japanese horror movie one for me it sort of feels like it and 2 there’s a picture with Diana who’s hair is covering her face and she has a parasol.

We get a bit of back story all I will say is she had a skin condition. The mother is mental the daughter is estranged because of Diana  and

So as I like to and being the name of the movie is lights out… I left mine off to watch.

So I’m watching the movie and its got to be at least 15 minutes in and at most 45  and all of a sudden my door flies open, then I see this black thing moving on the floor! For a second I did feel spooked, but that’s my black cat! her perfect timing (this cat actually makes me scream when she’s in crazy mode and runs past me sometimes just meowing.

Also many try sneaking up on me and scaring me and doesn’t work, the cat meows and I don’t know she’s there… I jump (go figure!)

anyway so I’ve never been scared of the dark that I can remember (other than when I’ve scared myself) Other than that little creep out by my cat the movie isn’t scary (I have nightmares worse than this and I laugh t those)  Heck I have had a boyfriend and some cousins scarier than this!

I will say that Diana reminded me of some water logged character the way the hair was…

as for worth a watch.. wait for rental or cable —Amazon

The Darkness


Image result for The Darkness Movie 20162016   PG-13  Horror Thriller    1:32    Kevin Bacon,   Radha Mitchell, David Mazouz ,  Ming Na Wen, Jennifer Morrison    (IMDB)

 

This was supposedly based on real life events. A malignant spirit  returns with the Taylor family who was vacationing at the Grand Canyon where their autistic son Mike  finds some stones with Native pictographs on them.

Soon after the family returns home  there are some odd occurrences  and their daughter gets ‘sick’. The son sees someone or something he calls Jenny, and of course as usual the un-explainable things escalate

I will give it one thing where I would think to be no suspense there was a bit there, though it was  not to the point of intensity you want to scream or jump if there’s a loud noise. So for that I add a a few points but minus a bunch on the whole native legend part (its something that is over used, that it feels more aImage result for The Darkness Movie 2016 cop out and If a story is based on a building built on a Native Burial ground or some sort of sacred ground, then  it’s just cookie cutter… change the characters names, the setting and they are basically all the same)

Another thing I will give it a points boost for, I don’t remember ever seeing an autistic child portrayed in a movie. Also I thought they didn’t speak,(or very rarely)  but then I met someone that was and he spoke fairly well.
