I watched two movies on Netflix over the weekend, Terrifier and It Follows. I just love horror, what can I say. Here are my thoughts on the two flicks. Continue reading “Recently Watched on Netflix #3”

Weekend Watches #2

D6F33B48-E2F5-4787-8BD9-14393BA010BF-14232-00000865870D1FCE

I ordered two new movies, and they came in the mail on Friday. Just in time for the weekend! I saved them both for Saturday night and watched them one after the other. It definitely made for a fun evening. It’s so exciting watching new movies for the first time. Especially ones you’ve been wanting to see. Maybe there’s something nostalgic about it too, but actually having the physical copies instead of just watching on Netflix makes it even more exciting. I don’t know, maybe that’s just me.

I have been wanting to see both of these movies, but I had been putting it off because of bad reviews they had gotten. I usually don’t pay attention to movie reviews because most of the time movies I love have bad reviews and the movies that everyone else seems to love, I don’t really like. That’s why I finally said screw it and went ahead and bought them.

My Top 10 Favorite Movies From My Childhood

680

This is probably going to be an interesting post because of the term “childhood”. Movies that come to mind for a lot of people are probably Disney movies, Mary-Kate and Ashley movies, etc. I did watch some Disney movies growing up, but I never really got into them. I loved Mary-Kate and Ashley growing up, but their movies were still never on my all-time favorites list. I had a bit of an interesting childhood, I guess. From the time I was around three years old (the earliest I can remember), I was obsessed with horror movies. My parents never filtered what I watched, so I was able to watch whatever I wanted, even if it wasn’t age appropriate. A few of my favorites actually were age appropriate though, so you’ll see some of those on this list as well.

I want to give a quick shoutout to Hunida for giving me the inspiration for this post. I just love posts like this which give you some insight into a persons life and interests, and they’re just really fun to do. You can see her favorite childhood movies post here.

Without further ado, here are my top ten favorites from my childhood in order of their release dates.

A Ranking of the Chucky Films

558

There are now a total of seven films including Chucky, the killer doll. Anyone who knows me should know that Chucky is my favorite horror villain. The first Child’s Play film came out the year I was born, and I so I grew up watching these movies as a kid. I thought it would be fun to give my opinion on each film and rank them in order from most to least favorite.

Five Faves on Friday #3: Remakes

Since I did sequels last week, I thought it would be fun to list some of my favorite remakes this week.

54

Dawn of the Dead
I actually very much prefer this remake to the original. The zombie makeup is more terrifying, and I like that the zombies can be fast moving, as opposed to moving slow. My favorite scene in the remake is during the beginning when things are just starting to happen. The little zombie girl was super creepy, and I like when Sarah Polley’s character escapes the house and then you see the complete chaos that is taking place all around.

55

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
This movie has a good cast. I like Jessica Biel and Eric Balfour in the leads. Everyone who was cast in the killer family was excellent too. Especially R. Lee Ermey. He’s brutal, terrifying, and absolutely perfect for this film. I actually found him to be scarier than Leatherface. I also love that the colors are desaturated in this movie. It just adds even more grittiness to the film.

56

Halloween
Many people love Rob Zombie’s films, and there are many people who despise them. Halloween is probably the most controversial, since the original is a classic. Some people thought he butchered the movie and hated how he made Michael more human. Personally, I like that. The real monsters in this world are human, and it’s usually a combination of both nature and nurture that turns them into what they are. I really liked the look of Michael in this film. He’s huge, and the way he slams people around while killing them is brutal. I also like the dirty and torn look of his mask.

57

The Last House on the Left
This is definitely one of those remakes that is very well done. Some people might find this movie difficult to watch though. This film is very violent, and not just in a gory way. It’s also psychologically terrifying, since events in this film can and do happen in real life. The rape scene is especially disturbing, but it plays a big part in the family wanting to get revenge on their daughters attackers.

58

The Hitcher
This is a great psychological horror film. Even though I think this movie is really good, it’s not one I can watch very often because of how real and terrifying Sean Bean is as John Ryder. The way he mentally tortures his victims before killing them is quite scary. He was definitely perfect for the role. I’m also a huge fan of Sophia Bush, and I love her in this movie. I thought she was badass. One of the other things I like about this remake is how visually appealing it is. The colors and scenery are pretty, despite all the terrible things happening.
