That’s it? I still got a long ass list of movies though. ….. (Thank God, yo. I was dying, yo. Nah, yo. Nah. Too many fucking movies, b. Chill, b. I brrrrrr wit the nah-nah-nah, b. Almost gave up about a week agooo!)
Fellow brethren and sistren, October has come to an end and that means we can stop acting scary now. No more life-size poseable skeletons, jack-o’-lanterns and rubber roach replicas. Only “boo” you need to be worried about after midnight is your significant other. Y’all are just about ready to move on from all this ghoulish stuff so I’ll cut to the chase. Homestretch. We on it.
Day 21: Oculus (2013)
I have to watch this one again. When it finally got going at the end, I kind of wished I didn’t almost doze off during the first hour. In my defense, it takes way too long for shit to pop off. NOTHING HAPPENS! I didn’t even take notes so I have nothing to talk about here. All I know is when something DID happen, it was interesting enough to make me want to revisit it and pay close attention to that first hour. With that said, I tucked this one in my movie stash for a rainy day.
Day 22: See No Evil (2006)
Let’s keep the WWE Studios produced movies theme going, shall we?
Just what I need. Senseless, erratic mutilation. “Choke slam to the ceiling!” (Jim Ross voice) If you get queasy at the thought of eye sockets being infiltrated, LOOK AWAY. This is not for you.
Hey, remember that show, Taina on Nickelodeon? All my hick-spanics know! I was surprised to see her in a horror movie for no valid reason at all. And to last as long as she did in this one. Because let’s face it. Only the white survive.
I have just a few comments for some of the scenes in this movie, so here they are.
-Yeah, sure. Tell the man that holds your life in his hands to let you go as he dangles you from an apartment building window. Very smart.
-The blonde chick is lucky the iPhone 6 Plus wasn’t out at the time or she would’ve had to deep-throat that.
-What’s with all the generic hip-hop music in this movie? …… OOOOH, that’s right. This was made around the time Vince McMahon was in his black phase.
I wish I was joking but this “Keep it up” segment happened late 2005 and See No Evil was released in 2006. Shaking my motherfucking head.
Day 23: See No Evil 2 (2014)
Not 1 single eyeball was poked out. What in the entire fuck!???!!! I thought that was Jacob Goodnight’s schtick. WHY IS HE TALKING?! *sigh*
I have to say, this is still better than the first one. The suspense in the first half hour of this movie is some of the finest straight-to-DVD films have to offer. Aside from Kane talking and not even coming close to an eyeball, his character appeared to be much more complete.
Jacob Goodnight was super imposing, upgrading his attire by adding a leather apron and a mask. Even the weapons looked more pristine and bad-ass. He looks now like he can even take on the elite slasher movie serial killers like Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers. On second thought, it’s pretty cool Kane got some lines this time around. He deserves it.
Day 24: Leprechaun: Origins (2014)
Ever since I went to the See No Evil 2/Leprechaun: Origins panel at NY Comic-Con last year, I had been looking forward to these movies, so I watched them back to back.
You see that picture of Hornswoggle right there? Most misleading shit I’ve ever seen. The man wasn’t shown ONCE in the movie. He’s credited for making believe he’s in the movie. LMAOOOOO! What the fuck was this? There’s no way in hell Hornswoggle was in the costume and makeup. It wasn’t even a Leprechaun. It was some ugly ass creature running around, naked. Am I missing something? I don’t remember shit about the Leprechaun movies but, fuck outta here! I know what a Leprechaun is. That’s not a fucking Leprechaun.
As far as the quality of the movie goes, it was ok. Between the few gruesome scenes and the Irish dudes hilariously arguing in that Irish accent, it was watchable. There was one scene that was excellent. My eyebrows shot up, my eyes popped out of my head and I reacted with actual words. “OOOH! ….. Daaamn.” If you saw this movie, I’m sure you know the scene I’m talking about. Very well done.
I’m still pissed the homie Hornswoggle wasn’t in a green top hat, sniffing around for gold coins and eating Lucky Charms though. It’s bullshit.
Day 25: The Shining (1980)
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
Please tell me one person did not sit at the typewriter and typed that shit. It was like 100 pages of that shit. If it was, I feel sorry for their fingers.
Jack fell asleep in a kitchen full of free Oreos, Tang, Country Time Lemonade, Corn Nuts and Nilla Wafers. Unless the reason he fell asleep in there was the itis, Jack was buggin’.
All jokes aside, this is a masterpiece. Stanley Kubrick shot this shit beautifully. I’m glad I didn’t waste my time looking for the shorter, supposed “better” version as Kubrick would call it. I prefer seeing every scene that was shot for this movie. Jack Nicholson HAS to be a psycho in real life. The faces he makes, to me, can’t be learned. That shit is natural. Don’t try to convince me he’s THAT good of an actor because I already know that. It’s not happening. Those expressions have not nearly enough to do with acting than it does being a fucking born psychopath.
If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and just watch it. I never watched it from beginning to end without distractions until now and it was 10 times better than I remembered it. That’s cuz I didn’t pay attention before. What more do I need to say about an 80’s horror movie that would convince you to watch it other than “It’s an 80’s horror movie”? That’s pretty much all that needs to be said. So isolate yourself for two and a half hours. GO! This needs to be SEENT.
Day 26: V/H/S: Viral (2014)
Three days after its release, I was watching this on a comfy couch, in the comfort of my home. The internet is the greatest aspect of life.
Movie begins with a dude obsessively filming his pretty ass girlfriend, on some Joe Budden shit. Before I knew it, shit got REAL! I got goosebumps at the 19-minute mark. That’s unheard of! The movie moves so quickly, you don’t have to wait AT ALL for shit to go down.
The entire V/H/S series is fun to watch. Never a dull moment.
I wish I could be a fly on the wall at one of the round table discussions/brainstorming sessions for these movies. How do they come up with this stuff? Everybody in the threads on Reddit are saying they were disappointed with this movie. That it wasn’t as good as the first 2 movies. That part is true. This one lacked compared to the others and the story was confusing. Disappointed though? Sounds like a personal problem. Whoever says they didn’t have fun watching this is a lying ass faggot. Parts 1 and 2 were good because they were fun to watch and made you go, “What the fuck?”. “Viral” did that. So take the dicks out your asses and just accept the fact that every horror movie declines with every sequel. Not every movie is going to have a strong ending. Just enjoy the ride.
Day 27: The Purge: Anarchy (2014)
Oh my God. Why does this exist? Please let this be the last ‘Purge’ movie. Shit sucks! The casting is horrible. These actors were not meant to be in a movie like this. They sucked. The movie itself pissed me off. It’s always some emotional ass stupid bitches fucking up the groove. Let the man get his revenge, who GIVES a fuck?
It’s like you do right by somebody and they repay you by being clingy and ruining your life. Hate that shit. This shit was MAD disposable.
Omar from The Wire and I share the same sentiment. “MOTHERFUCK THE PURGE!”
Day 28: World War Z (2013)
The unrated cut. EXCELLENT movie. It could’ve ended after 28 minutes and I would’ve been satisfied with just that. So fast-paced, so intense. You know shit is hectic when you eagerly take refuge in a project building in Newark, New Jersey.
I officially want to read the novel this movie is based on, which is kind of backwards for me. I prefer reading books (this sentence already sounds inaccurate) before watching their film adaptations…….on the rare occasion that I DO read a book. See how I patched that sentence up at the end like dat dere? (Auntie Fee voice)
Oh, you didn’t? Then why the hell you pointing the ca….take that mothafuckin’ camera off me and point it at the blog, SHIT!
Anyway, the “Mother Nature is a serial killer” monologue alone made me wonder what other gems were compressed and even removed completely from the script.
I recommend World War Z to pretty much anybody who likes movies in general. Or Brad Pitt.
Day 29: Aftershock (2012)
Eli Roth never disappoints. It’s all in the tagline. Everything that can possibly go wrong in this movie, DOES! And it’s all humanity’s fault once the earthquake is over. Even acts of kindness result in the most unimaginable epic fails you’ve ever seen in any film. It’s what separates this one from the others. Every glimpse of hope these characters felt were immediately crushed.
At one point, I figured there’s no happy ending for any of these people. They have the worst luck. Whether I was right or wrong is up to y’all to find out. I’m not one to spoil things. That’s for the faggots.
Day 30: A Serbian Film (2010)
I can not believe what I just watched. I’m surprised this isn’t banned everywhere. This movie is not for
the faint of heart any-fucking-body. Seriously. Is this how Serbia gets down?
It’s rated NC-17, so I should’ve known. I should’ve known I was in for some fucked up shit. I don’t even wanna say what it’s about. If you’re curious, google it and read the synopsis. I will say, though, that after reading about the director’s intentions, I reckon that this movie has artistic merit. Srđan Spasojević (don’t even know how to pronounce that) said in an interview, “You’re raped from birth and it doesn’t even stop after your death.” Now, I see the movie in a new light. It’s still fucked up to no end, but now I know it wasn’t made to just sicken the audience as much as possible. It was also to make a statement through metaphor. I just don’t think the average person can sit through this. Too graphic.
WE’VE GOT OURSELVES A
Day 31: Eraserhead (1977) & Pieces (1982)
Decided to watch 2 movies to conclude #ScaryMovieADayMonth because I’m a masochist and apparently, 31 movies in 31 days just isn’t enough for me.
In 2014, a 1977 movie made me say, “Whoa, how’d they do that?” You new special effects people ought to be ashamed of yourselves.
This movie is fucking weird. Even though there’s no definitive explanation of what this movie is about, but to me, it’s basically about how life sucks balls and marriage and parenthood makes it suck dick. And that the little bit of sleep you get as a parent sucks ass because if you’re not having a nightmare, you’re having a sweet dream that only makes you realize how much your life sucks orangutan tits once you wake up. And that the only solution is to murder your child in cold….grits? Oops, I just gave away too much. Oh well, it’s not like your were going to watch this anyway.
80’s gory goodness. The only copy I could find was like a videocassette rip and it looked all shitty. PERFECT. I prefer watching old movies like that, in their fuzzy, original picture quality. Unless it’s a masterpiece or a movie with highly visual scenes, I don’t want to watch old movies in Blu-ray. It’ll just unmask more flaws from already flawed movies with unprecedented clarity. Fuck that. Other than the few enjoyable, gory scenes, this movie is pretty bad.
The actors where just miming recordings of their voices reading the script, you can tell. Sometimes, their mouths barely moved while you can clearly hear them “speaking”. There were stupid scenes that had nothing to do with anything. Like the Kung-Fu professor scene. Pointless. Lots of nudity, including full frontal from both a female and a male. That’s 2 days in a row I watch a movie with male full frontal nudity. This is ridick-ulous. I’m kind of glad #ScaryMovieADayMonth is over. The pecker sightings were getting out of hand.
Bonus #ScaryMovieADayMonth related stuff:
– Lights Out by David F. Sandberg (2013)
Short 2-minute film. Creepy as all hell.
– Tuck Me In by Ignacio F. Rodó (2014)
Advertised as the scariest 1-minute short film you will ever see. Sounds about right.
– Bravo’s 100 Scariest Movie Moments (2004)
The infamous countdown that I can still enjoy a decade later. My potential list of movies for next year is already significantly hefty but it’s better if it always is. This countdown is helping me with that.
3 years in a row. 94 scary movies in 93 days. Not really back to back but yes, really… sort of .. kind of.
Time to go Trick-or-Treating! Which, by my definition, is pickpocketing kids for their candy while creepily salivating over the sexy Halloween costumes the THOTS so THOTfully wear. (I’m not doing this. It’s just my definition.)
There might even be a costume twerk-off in the middle of the street. You never know, these days.
Happy Halloween, everybody! *revs up chainsaw, runs like maniac through crowded NYC streets*
