Man, I’ve gone horror movie crazy this year! I’ve seen movies in theaters, at home, everywhere. Here’s my rankings of some of the latest in terror.
Halloween Ends. This is the movie I was looking forward to the most this year, and I’d hate to say it, but it was terrible. It was bad! I love the series and wasn’t looking for something that would re-invent it, but that’s what they tried to do. There was some quality moments, but they were sparse in the confusing, stupid ending of a franchise. I did like spotting Shinedown’s Zack Myers in a little cameo role, though.
Pearl. After watching “X”, which is the sequel to Pearl, I was hoping for something a little bit scarier. Don’t get me wrong, this is a decent movie, but much different than the other one, which just came out in March. Looking for a good afternoon of watch? Watch them back to back.
The Watcher. This one is a series on Netflix. I blasted through it in a weekend. Solid, creepy series. Not many jump scares per say, but some great mind twisting moments. It’s also based on a true story, the house is still there and people live in it. Oh, and it has Stifler’s Mom in it, so there’s that! LOL
The Black Phone. This reminded me a little of Silence of the Lambs with Buffalo Bill. Creepy basement abductions…def worth a watch.
Terrifier 2. This is just a Gore Fest. I love Art the Clown. I’ll say this, after watching it, I said to my friend “Dumb, but fun!” I liked it!
Barbarian. What a movie! I didn’t even know it takes place in Brightmore, just outside of Detroit, before watching it. This one will have you on the edge of your seat. Highly recommended.
Smile. A. Must. See. There was about seven or eight jump scares. This twisted flick was the best one I saw this fall. GO SEE SMILE!
