Curse of Chucky (2013) Review

Synopsis: Chucky is back. What else do you need? My Quick Review: Curse of Chucky was a huge let down for me. Sure, you can find everything that is expected in a chucky movie (cheesy oneliners, gruseome kills, dark humor, some sexuality, a cameo from Jennifer Tilly) but somehow all of those ingredients taste sour. […]

Body Double (1984) Review

Synopsis: A young actor’s obsession with spying on a beautiful woman who lives nearby leads to a baffling series of events with drastic consequences. My Quick Review: I have recently decided to revisit some Brian de Palma’s horror/thriller movies that I haven’t watched since I was a kid/teenager. Most of the time as you grow up, […]

Devil’s Pass (2013) Review

Original Title: The Dyatlov Pass Incident Synopsis: Five young filmmakers retrace the steps of a doomed group of hikers in pursuit of an unsolvable mystery. My Quick Review: What a surprise to see Renny Harlin, a director who made such action movies as Die Hard 2 and The Long Kiss Goodnight at the helm of a […]

Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013) Review

Synopsis: The haunted Lambert family seeks to uncover the mysterious childhood secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world. Guest Review (Mel): I have been waiting for this movie since I saw the first Insidious. Once again I was greatly entertained with James Wan and Leigh Whannell who I fell in love with after […]

This is The End (2013) Review

Synopsis: (from IMDb) While attending a party at James Franco’s house, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and many other celebrities are faced with the apocalypse. My Quick Review: OK, This is The End is not your typical Horror Movie and some might frown upon having this film on a Horror Movies Blog. With that being said, there […]

The Fury (1978) Review

Synopsis: A government agent is determined to come to his son’s rescue, when a sinister official kidnaps him to harbor his extremely powerful psychic abilities. My Quick Review: The Fury is Brian de Palma’s follow up to Carrie and we can find similar themes in both movies, namely teenagers with psychic abilities. The Fury is more […]

The Conjuring (2013) Review

Synopsis: (from IMDb) Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren work to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in their farmhouse. My Quick Review: I have to admit I wasn’t as impressed by The Conjuring as most of my fellow reviewers/critics. Is it an efficient horror movie that provides a few scares and thrills? Most […]

Chernobyl Diaries (2012) Review

Synopsis: Six tourists hire an extreme tour guide who takes them to the abandoned city Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. During their exploration, they soon discover they are not alone. My Quick Review: For some reason I had it in my mind that chernobyl diaries was a found footage […]

The Purge (2013) Review

Synopsis: A family is held hostage for harboring the target of a murderous syndicate during the Purge, a 12-hour period in which any and all crime is legalized. [from IMDb] Neoli’s Review: It’s about time Ethan Hawke starred in a sci-fi thriller again.  The last time he did that was in Gattaca back in 1997, […]

Gallowwalkers (2012) Review

Synopsis: (from IMDb) A cursed gunman (Snipes) whose victims come back from the dead recruits a young warrior to help in the fight against a gang of zombies. My (very) Quick Review: I can’t believe Gallowwalkers reportedly cost 12 millions USD to produce. What I can believe though is that it was shelved for 7 years […]
