Your mind was racing, everything settled with pure darkness, silence is very key at these type of moments in life. You were nervous and anxiety had settled in. The cold wind was blowing upon everyone’s faces. The blank stares of the friends and foes glaring each and every way. Darkness had taken over and you knew it had won. The control you contributed was none on your part as you let it ease you over. The guilt filed with emotion and pain will suffer for eternity. This world makes you a bad person, and honestly it wasn’t your fault. Everyone’s to blame here, darkness has been here and wont ever be going away…..

Top 3 Horror Remakes Ever

critic, horror, movies, new, review, Scary Movies

Remakes for the Horror Genre have never been that great to say the least, as fans we always have high expectations because it’s something miraculous when a film we grew up loving comes back into theaters edging us back to the original. Sadly many remakes I have watched have been quite poorly made and sometimes go a completely different direction than the original or just taken too overboard. I thought long and hard on this list and did my best to give you The Top 3 Horror Remakes Ever Enjoy!

 

1.)Evil Dead (2013) Director:Fede Alvarez/Writer:Fede Alvarez

   

If you’ve never seen The Evil Dead original I don’t know where you have been the last 30 years. The original Evil Dead(1981) Was made back in the early 80’s starting out as a horror movie which seemingly turned in a comedic acid trip down the stretch with its gruesome violence and scares. The film gained great fan base which is why the series continued into Evil Dead 2(1987) as well as Army Of Darkness(1992). Moving now to 2013 we landed the infamous return of the Evil Dead with its remake. I personally love the original one but the remake is honestly gold. The setting is a cabin with a group of friends trying to help there good friend Mia battle a drug addiction and stay clean, what better way then going to a creepy cabin out in the middle of nowhere right? The nights get dark as the group begins getting possessed and attacked by the lifeless demons which are drawn to the cabin itself and will do everything making sure no one gets out alive. This film brings a ton of gore play into act and adds fantastic music to most climatic scenes sending that creep factor down your spine. The acting is fantastic and drives you in as each moment gets much more intense than the previous,this film has it all and does not disappoint in any shape or form. If your looking for one of the best original horror movies remade in the same type of manner but much more brought together do not miss this one.

 

2.)The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) Director:Marcus Nispel/Writer:Kim Henkel, Tobe Hooper, Scott Kosar

       

Couldn’t keep this one of my list if I tried to, produced by Michael bay and released in 2003 and still one of my all time favorite movies and remakes; The Texas Chainsaw Massacre(2003). We meet a young group of friends traveling in  the backwoods of Texas that tend to run into a very large problem that consists from a family of inbred psychopaths lead by a man called Leatherface. This film brings back many memories when I was younger, but never understood it until I got older. The first one that came out in 1974 was considered one of the most distributing movies of its time. Oddly not noted so much because of the gore or murders, but because of the actual family and Leatherface himself is a terrifying back story. We come to understand that this family is cannibals and have killed many people as well as eaten.The movie does well in like scenes just like in the original, but knows when to add its own mix on the take. I love how this movie was shot, and how fantastic looking the Hewitt’s house looks. By far one of the creepiest visuals I’ve ever seen in any horror movie known to man. The gore really hits hard throughout the whole entire movie as it gets worse and hopeless for the survivors.  I think the acting was far superior than any of the older films to be honest, Jessica Beal has a show down with Leatherface in this one and it keeps you on your seat, she did a fantastic job throughout this whole movie, as well as the rest of the cast. If you love old classic slashers reamed with amazing production and acting that give you a good scare be sure to check out The Texas Chainsaw Massacre(2003) I promise you will not be disappointed.

 

3.)Halloween (2007) Director:Rob Zombie/Writer:Rob Zombie


This is My favorite remake of all time, I don’t care what anybody says Rob Zombie I think nailed this movie with his sick and twisted mind and made his own version in a sense that still ties on with the original, but in a Rob Zombie sense of  dark fashion. This one goes way back when we first meet Michael Meyers(Daeg Faerch) at the younger age of 10 and what his home life actually was like. We learn what events turned him into the monster he is as we see him grow and destructs killing anyone in his way. I absolutely love this film in every single way possible, its so amazing to see a horror movie that started slasher films itself be tied into to a remake so well succeeded. Zombie really takes you inside a the mind of a young Michael Meyers and shows you the hard ships and heartaches he suffered not to mention abuse and neglect from everyone except his mother. The acting is done very well as Zombie always includes familiar cast mates from all his films in his movies, such as his wife Sherri Moon Zombie. The violence is over the top, as we see Michael viciously murder throughout the whole movie with pure hatred and anger. It truly is a violent film and really shows the older versions who’s boss in the gore category. The storyline has been bashed at times because it messes a lot with the first movie as I’ve heard, but don’t let that fool you, this movie really deserves a go. It really made me think how talented Zombie is and how a creative mind succeeds at many things they love, kudos to him. If you like any of the Halloween movies be sure not to miss this one despite what anyone says. This movie lives up to the hype and was done in a greatly fashion, be sure to bring your barf bag and enjoy the flick!

The Strangers (2008) Review:Director:Bryan Bertino/Writer:Bryan Bertino

I saw this film in theaters back in 2008 and forever has stuck with me, lets just say things don’t end happily ever after as the mood gets tarnished from the start. The movie Claims it’s inspired by true events that occurred to James Hoyt(Scott Speedman) and his girlfriend Kristen Mckay(Liv Tyler) on the night of February 11,2005 as the couple left a friends wedding reception returning to the Hoyt’s family home.  In reality The Strangers(2008) was loosely based on various home invasion murders, including The Manson Murders, as well as the Austrian couple that was murdered by three teenagers in their vacation home in The Czech Republic. The movies carries on as we met a young couple just arriving at the family home late at night seemingly just getting in a very verbal argument as both are very distant to one another. The night moves slowly as Hoyt calls for a ride from a friend to leave as we come to find out everything was perfect with Kristen the whole night until he popped the question. Things start going very weary and noises start to endure, mixed with knocking and a mysterious visitor that was already once there before. Watching this movie made me very nervous for the characters as I hoped they would make smarter decisions, the 3 masked intruders tended to live up to the hype and were very frightening and realistic on the screen. This movie is a bad case of what could go really wrong being out in the middle of no where getting harassed by psychopaths all leading up to the famous line of the movie “Because You Were Home”. The film itself is shot fantastic and I love that they filmed the movie at an actual farm house. The acting I believe is sub par and I truly felt scared for the characters in the house fighting for there life’s as you could say things couldn’t get any worse for them. This movie is shot the whole time inside the house as they start to invade the couple. Overall I enjoyed this movie and thought it was made very well, being that it also is a film I wouldn’t watch for awhile. Considering it’s very depressing and takes loads of time to build up until the ending which makes up for the whole movie you could say. If you love dark horror/cult movies then this is the one for you, it truly is one of the scariest films I’ve ever seen, and will make you think twice to check all your locked doors at night. I overall give The Strangers(2008) a 3.5/5.

Rise Of The Planet Of the Apes (2011) Review:Director:Rupert Wyatt/ Writers:Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, and Pierre Boulle

Hello again and thank you for viewing my page and Enjoy!

It all started in 1969 when the world first saw the apes take over on the big screen Planet Of The Apes (1968) Fast forward to (2011) and times have very well changed in the movie world. This is the first movie in the reboot series next to the upcoming Dawn of the planet of the Apes (2014). This story follows a very motivated man Will Rodman (James Franco) On his quest to find a cure for the alzheimer’s disease devoted to help his father. We learn at the lab of his profession that a very special Chimpanzee has a unique gift inherited from his mother and is taken in by Will Rodman (James Franco) to his own home. We watch as our very eyes vision this ape come to life in every way, swinging  like “Tarzan” and swaying from ceilings to platforms and having what I would call a perfectionist type home for a chimpanzee. Things turn for the worst as Caesar (Andy Serkis) ends up in the local primate shelter because of a bad accident in the neighborhood. Caesar begins to understand that he is a animal but it takes him a good vivid trip down memory lane to understand his purpose as he is the only one of his kind with outstanding IQ and abilities. If you want a movie that is full of action and surprises this is the one for you, the acting itself was very memorable considering I think Serkis is one of the best in the business in motion capture acting. Through out the film we watch Caesars human like qualities and emotional vibe really connect to Will Rodman (James Franco) as we take in every mood the ape is and have a understanding on how smart he really is becoming really did interest me throughout this whole film. (James Franco) Himself i think did a fantastic job bonding with Caesar and connecting to him throughout the whole film showed how great and surreal the film really is. Overall if your a fan of the series and haven’t seen this one be sure to check it out you won’t be disappointed, I give Rise Of The Planet Of the Apes (2011) a 4.5/5

Curse Of Chucky (2013) Review:Director:Don Mancini/ Writers-Don Mancini

Curse-of-Chucky-Cover

 

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
