Scream(1996)

One of the first real “slasher” movies I ever saw Scream(1996) as a kid and boy did it ever terrify my little mind. The famous first “15” min of the film has more than enough to draw you in. Everyone needs to understand that this film was set on its own and really started the whole caller ID/slasher age. I’ve read plenty of articles stating that after “Scream” was released everyone was getting Caller ID. The first glance we get of “Ghostface” is him stalking a poor high school girl Casey(Drew Barrymore)that turns out quite tragic. That first scene will forever stick in your mind, and really sets the tone for this classic Wes Craven flick. The cast brings so much to the table as we get to understand there is a killer with a motive stalking the small town of Woodsboro. Everything about this movie is really fun and the mystery aspect starts to kick in immediately. Since there are 4 installments in the series everyone knows by now that “There are rules to survive” and “Everybody is a suspect” Spoken by the fan favorite Randy(Jamie Kennedy) as he tends to always be right. This movie will take you on a ride of cold blooded murder, revenge, thrown in with a mix of comedy. I really admire the story work and the effort by everyone that was involved in this film as why this it’s one of my favorite slasher/horror movies of all time and honestly re-amped the whole horror genre by itself. One thing that really intrigued me about this film is the voice of “Ghostface” was actually a real voice done by Roger Jackson and not a voice box that many so thought existed. Wes Craven stated that “The Voice” was never seen by anyone on set. His lines were played out loud as he was not present but still talked on the phone to the actors, which I thought was pretty creepy and clever at the same time. I honestly could go on forever talking about how much I love the Scream Franchise as it still sits high today with 4 installments and the only horror film of its kind to keep the same cast mates so far in the series! If you love horror movies in general then you cannot miss “Scream” as it’s one of the best films of its time. “What’s Your Favorite Scary Movie?”.

Hello all and first of thank you for viewing my page and Enjoy!

Well what can i say? This Is the 6th installment in the Childs Play (1988) Series all written by the man himself Don Mancini. The film carries it self out as one of the darkest out of the series dropping the comedic side. I personally have been a fan of the series since the first Childs Play (1988) at age 7 and I was hooked. Never again did I look at any doll the same, and I can assure you many would agree thinking of that red hair and creepy grin. Chucky is indeed back and is better than ever, with the setting taking place in a creepy home with a gothic horror type feel just  waiting for things to happen as soon as the mysterious package ends up on Nicas (Fionna Dourif) front door. A big plus from this film is even if you’ve never seen any of the Childs Play (1988) films you can still relate because the films tie together amazingly. Mancini directed the film as this would be his 2nd project only being shot in 30 days and next to Seed Of Chucky (2004) and does not Disappoint. The shots in this movie flow very well together and really brings you in the visual of Nicas (Fionna Dourif)  home and the house itself is stunning, It really is a creepy looking house. The film does tend to take a while to build up once it does you’re in for a ride. The acting itself is very good notably by Fionna Dourif which is the daughter Of Brad Dourif (Voice of Charles Lee Ray.) Chucky himself is indeed scary and the Lake shore Strangler doesn’t let anyone get away easy this time. I was disappointed this movie didn’t get a theatrical release considering this is the first movie ever straight to DVD. Overall if you’re a fan of the series like me you will indeed enjoy this movie and appreciate everything that went into making this film and leave with a good scare. I give Curse of Chucky (2013) a 4/5
