Best halloween…

Best horror Movie….

Best horror/survival horror game…

Best Horror comedy…

Without a doubt the one of the best Halloween movies is, “Nightmare Before Christmas.” It was one of my favorite movies since I was like 4 or 5. It’s basically just a great halloween movie about a world were everyday is like halloween, and they celebrate halloween instead of any other holiday. Jack Skellington(a skeleton) gets tired of being the pumpkin king every halloween. He hates how repetitious every day is and can be, and he wants a change. It was then that he stumbled upon a world… Christmas Town. Jack likes Christmas Town and decides to give, “Sandy Claws,” a break and he can take care of Christmas this year. I think one of the coolest parts of this movie is that it’s a musical, but it has cool music! In fact, Marilyn Manson did a version of, “This is Halloween.” His version can be heard in the opening to, “Nightmare Before CHristmas,” the new special edition.

I love His face when he says, “…and they call him sandy claws!”
These are my favorite scenes in the movie…

Other cool movies:
Pumpkinhead
Night of the living dead
return of the living dead
last house on the left
final destination
doom
30 days of night
mirrors
Interview with a vampire
blade
Scream
I know what you did last summer
candyman
American Werewolf In London
Bram Stokers Dracula
Nosferatu
and a lot more….

Tremors

I wasn’t sure what movie to do. I was torn between Tremors, or the horror comedy, Once Bitten. Of course I chose Tremors!

Tremors- The movie had a pretty good cast. Kevin Bacon, Reba McEntire and Michael Gross, are a few of the many charactors in the movie. Michael Gross even came back for the following 3 movies.

The basic idea of Tremors had been that something which nobody could manage to find was killing the local citizens in a dry country desert of a town that is rather small to begin with (and only has a polulation of 14)! Anyhow, they discovered after one attack that the creature is under the ground and is apperently blind. It attacks upon receiving vibrations from footsteps and cars, ect (a little bit like bats receive echoes). They thought that what they’ve been killing are the monsters, but it’s just they monsters tounges. While running away they find themselves above an aquaduct and the “Graboid”(what they call the tremors) smashed itself into the cement walls killing itself.

Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) is paranoid. Thats basically the only way to discribe him. He owns a shed/safehouse thats cement all around it and has a code for entrence. He has a tank, night vision goggles, guns, bombs and just about everything you’d expect to find at a military hanger or warehouse.

Eventually the town gets its fame for killing the graboid. The sequels don’t focus around the graboid. Instead, the second movie focusus on the shriekers(evolved graboids), and the third focusus on assblasters(the evolved shriekers). Tremors 4 kind of sucked since the enitire movie was in the 1800’s or something.

This is one of my favorite scenes from Tremors 2.

John Carpenter Films Part 2 or 2

This is the second part of 2 posts about my favorite director ever: John Carpenter.

They Live- “I have come here to chew bubble gum and to kick ass… and I’m all out of gum.” -Roddy Piper in They Live. John Nada (Roddy Piper) plays the part of some guy that has sunglasses. Yes, sunglasses. But their freakin’ cool sunglasses! They show the aliens hidden in the world. When he puts the glasses on he see’s everything he saw, except billboards have alien messages on them, people that seem normal are actually alien, and basically any subliminal messages.  I know The Terminator and Dirty Harry are usually considered to be some of the most badass movie charactors ever, but I’d definatly include John Nada on the list. Anyway, I think the whole movie is great and it has a funny ending too, so check it out for Halloween.

Assualt On Precinct 13 I don’t know if it could be considered a horror movie… but this movie, “PWNS!” It’s a movie about people that attack and kill many people at a police precinct. Precinct 13. You should watch it just because it’s cool….but make sure you don’t get the 2005 remake, because it sucks.
Best video I could find on youtube thats not 9 minutes long.

The Fog-I wouldn’t say it’s that good. It’s an ok movie. I vaugley remember it. I think it’s about pirate ghosts.

John Carpenter films (Part 1 of 2)

Halloween. They Live. The Fog. Assault on Precinct 13. These are all great films by John Carpenter. The Thing is yet another notable masterpiece. John Carpenter is incredibly well known for the horror movies he directed/wrote/composed music for.

The Thing-
The Thing is an awesome movie! Although the game is scarier, “The Thing,” stars Kurt Russel as R.J. MacReady. The Thing was supposedly inspired by The Thing From Another World(throughout the movie there are references to events in the 1951 “original”). The Thing follows a group of researchers in the Antartic who are subject to a, “Thing from another world.” This thing blends it’s cells with you blood somehow to camoflauge itself as you. As you die inside your own body, the thing uses you as it’s host. It cannot stand heat, flamethrowers and blowtorches prove most effective when trying to kill an infected member.

The movie ends with Childs and MacReady as the only survivors. However no further information as to weather they live or die is provided. In the video game, Childs is found dead and MacReady(expected dead) has found a functioning helicopter that he uses to help you escape. According to the comics, Childs and Macready both survive the night.

The Thing(movie) has references to a Norwegian Camp nearby. The members are all dead (torched/burned, blood everywhere). The Norweigen camp is the group of researchers from the movie The Thing from Another World, which leads me to believe that The Thing is a sequel or reboot rather than a remake. Sci-Fi, which is remaking the movie, “IT,” has also announced they would remake, “The Thing.” Earlier this year they officially announced the movie would be a prequel to the John Carpenter film rather than a remake. The “prequel” will take place in the Norwegian camp/base. If this is the case wouldn’t it be more of a remake of the original?


Halloween-

Michael Myres, he seemed like any average, ordinary, young boy… that was until he murdered his sister on Halloween. He spent the next 15 years locked up in a psyc ward were the rest of the world wouldn’t have to fear him. However he breaks one day on Halloween and he kills off teenagers in the area, one by one. This is a classic film well known by millions of horror fans horror fans.

Michael Myres’ victims didn’t stop after 15 years either. Fowling the first movie there came:

Halloween the game (a low budget game for the atari 2600 that had actually used marker and maskign tape to make the label, by hand!)

Halloween II

Halloween III: Season of the witch(Didn’t actually even
cast a role as Michael Myres or any previous charactors.)

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myres

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myres

Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myres

Halloween H20(20 years later)

Halloween Ressurection

Halloween(remake…stupid remake sucked!)

Halloween II(sequel to the remake sucked too!)

John Carpenter only directed the first movie. I personally believe the first one was the best. The following movies weren’t near as amazing as the original however any crappy Halloween sequel/prequel beats Rob Zombies Halloween remakes.

End of Part One!
(I did finish part two, just want to start a new post with They Live and Precinct 13!)

Jeepers Creepers

Jeepers Creepers is a very cool movie. The movie starts out when Trish and her brother Darry are driving home from college. On their way back to their parents’ house they were in shock as they noticed a strange looking man wearing a trench coat dump what looked like, bloody body bags, down a pipe. Not too far away the two decided to stop and check it out. When Darry falls down the pipe(it’s a big pipe) he looks up and around to realize that the walls are covered by human flesh, sewn together. They leave the area and contact the local authorites, however the crime scene had been destroyed by a fire which spread from a near by church- all evidence had been destroyed. A pshycic tells them that every time they hear the song, “Jeepers Creepers,” they will be in grave danger. As Darry and Trish are under the protection of the police, they learn that nothing will stop the Creeper.

Another horror movie? Yes! For the next 3 days I will blog about horror/halloween topics. On the 31st I will have about 4 polls, and about 2 posts. So check out my blog on Saturday(and every other day too).

IT

Do you have a fear of clowns? If you do, you may have scene, “IT.” This movie had caused many people to fear Clowns (Calouraphobia: The fear of clowns). This movie is awesome. It is a very long film, but it’s great! Along with “Christine,” this was one of the first scary movies I’ve ever scene. I was about 5 or 6 years old and after I watched this movie I was up all night every night fearing a clown would find a way to kill me. I even feared the bathroom! I thought blood would start bubbling out of the sink, or clowns would crawl out from the drains! I saw that movie again, like a week later.

The movie is about a group of kids who grew up with a fear of a killer clown(pennywise) who eats the kids in the neighborhood. However, adults can’t see him. The clown goes into hibernation for every 40 years, eats, and goes into hibernation again. The kids decide the only thing to do is to kill Pennywise. They made a promise that they would defeat the clown and if he ever somes back they have to kill him. They defeat him, and for all they know they killed him (they had no fear of him anymore… he can’t be hurt if you still fear him). 40 years later they discover that the Clown, “Pennywise,” is back, and staying true to a promise they made years ago, they will not stop until he dies. The video below is probably my favorite scene in the movie.

I like the line were pennywise(Tim Curry) says, “Do you have Prince Albert in a can? You do? Well you better let him out! Eh-he-eh-he-eh-he!”

Pennywise, the killer clown in, IT.

Pennywise, the killer clown in, "IT."

The Howling

Today I saw a great movie, “The Howling.”

Did you ever see a movie called, “American Werewolf In London?” That was probably the first werewolf movie I saw in my whole life. Today I saw another great werewolf movie, it was called, “The Howling.”The movie told the story of a reporter who had been severly traumatized after an encounter with a madman. However, she cannot remember anything about it. In an attempt to regain her memories, a pshycologist recommended that she should go to a place they call, “The Colony.” As she begins to get used to the quiet, calm place with her husband, she realizes that they aren’t safe, and something is in the woods.
