Tremors

Video Clip

A sort of horror comedy in which a group of huge worms from underground are attacking people in the desert. I think that this movie is not very good and in fact I didn't really see much of the comedy in it. I thought that these creatures were extemely dumb which did not make them very scary at all. I think that the acting was o.k. but these men seemed to make it an adventure instead of something that they should be scared of.

I thought that this movie was not totally as bad as many people seem to think that it is. Granted this sort of screenplay has been written to death with nothing really unique about this one except for the idea that Godzilla is trying to nest and hide in the city. I thought that it could still entertain you and sets up for the sequel well. I just hope that they don't decide to do the sequel because it may bomb majorly in the box office.

The Ring

I was really not impressed with this movie.  I will agree that their are times when this movie is pretty scary.  But the whole idea of the movie is just rediculous.  Why is it that in these recent horror movies people think that finding the culprit of this demonic tape that you will not die.  It is as if the person is some sort of sorcerer or something.  The first 20 minutes of this movie I thought was very good.  Then I thought that the last ten minutes of the movie put together what would have been a totally rediculous movie.  If you want to see a movie to be scared this is pretty good but the fact that it doesn't make any sense is something that should be taken into consideration.

I thought that this movie was just rediculous but it could have been not so bad.  I mean it sort of had your sitting on the edge of your seat because you are never really sure what is going on.  The bad part is that when you find out what actually is going on it is so rediculous that you almost can't even believe that you are watching this movie.  I mean the idea of energy coming out of the computer and making it so you die in 48 hours is just rediculous.  This movie would have been a lot better if they just had the people get hooked on watching it until it drove them mad.

Halloween 4

Definitely one of the better in the Michael Myers series.  In this episode it shows many people dressed as Michael Myers for Halloween and he has sort of dissappeared for ten years.  The fact that it is ten years later is a good effect.  I also liked how at the end you see him get shot into a whole but you never really see if he is really dead.  The thing that I thought was sort of strange was at the end of the movie how the little girl had turned into a killer.  It makes you wonder what the next movie will bring.

Thirteen Ghosts

I thought that this movie was pretty good for a horror movie.  I mean I felt like it sort of stayed within the realm of believable but was missing a little bit of that stuff that makes you jump.  I think that this was totally different than the original.  But the changes that they made I believe are changes just to modernize the movie.  Actually the only thing about this movie that is like the original at all is that it is about 13 ghosts and about a family moving into a dead relatives house.

Panic Room

I thought that this movie could have been a little more suspenseful.  I thought that the demeanor of the villains was terrible.  They were borderline funny and that is not the best thing for an edge of your seat thriller.  If you saw the preview to this movie than you basically saw the movie.  I did like how they did the ending though.  It was by far the best part of the movie.  I like how they did not let you know if Jodie Foster freed the man and did not press charges.  I choose to believe that she did.

Pitch Black

This movie was not that publicized in the movies but was actually pretty good. I usually don't buy into the science fiction futuristic stuff but this was interesting. I thought it was interesting how it had the two villains and one of them was not as bad as he seemed. A lot of people in this movie weren't as they seem. I thought the eyes of the convict were really cool. This movie kept me on the edge of my seat.

The Others

I thought that this movie was very creepy.  Anytime you have a mute person and people who live in an old house it is usually scary.  But then when you add in the fact that her children can not be exposed to the light this makes for a great horror movie.  I think that there were two distinct times that I really jumped out of my seat but the whole movie was creepy.  Some things you may have seen coming a little but the ending is something that would not think of .  The fact that this sort of ending has been done before is the only flaw with this movie.

An American Werewolf in London

This movie is sort of a horror spoof on most of the werewolf movies that have been produced.  I thought that it was somewhat enjoyable and it got right to the point.  If you look at the movie as a horror movie you will be highly dissapointed.  If you look at it to make you laugh you will also be highly dissapointed.  You have to just watch it to enjoy the joke of the whole thing and how rediculous werewolves really are.  The best thing about this movie is that it is short so you don't get too bored of watching this sort of story.

Lost Souls

I thought that this movie was very comparable to the movie Stigmata. If you liked Stigmata you would like this movie. I think that I probably liked this one a little bit better because in Stigmata I was not really that sure if the girl was good or bad. I think that this movie has the fitting ending and there were no tricks to help stop what was going to happen. I thought that the writer did a good job with creating a ending that did not please everyone but was necessary.

They

The comparison now seems to be between this movie and the movie The Ring which is also in theaters now.  I may be the only one who thinks so but this movie is much better than The Ring.  I thought that this movie was solid.  It does a good job of never really letting you see the monster and it makes you jump a good deal.  There isn't an overload of comedy that they try to throw in most of the dimension films like Thirteen Ghosts, and the best thing is that all the characters end up being taken, not you usual stop the demon at the end and everyone is happy plot.  I love how this movie keeps you sort of thinking these people are crazy because it seems like they should be because of their past traumatic experiences.

Red Dragon

I thought that this was a good movie.  This is much better than the third part of the trilogy, Hannibel.   I thought that this sort of restores Lecter's creepiness and he doesn't seem as off the wall as he was in Hannibel.  I thought that the killer in this movie did an excellent job of making you wonder who he was going to kill and why.  Sometimes you thought someone would die and they wouldn't and vice versa.  Lecter's relationship with Graham is not as interesting as his relationship with Starling because he does not get into Graham's head.  I thought that it tied in well with Silence of the Lambs.

Signs

I thought that all in all this movie was not bad.  I thought that the only real flaw with the movie was how fake the alien looked and how ironic the ending was.  I was expecting the flashbacks to lead to a little more with the story.  The basis of the movie being about a religious man who needs to find himself is an idea that has been used before but is still a good idea.  I liked the filmmaking in how their are many times when you don't really see what is happening because the lights are off or the camera is on the floor.

Frailty

I thought that about half of the way through this movie that it was just rediculous.  I found myself commenting on how psycho this father was and how tragic it must have been for these kids.  But then as the story unfolds this turns out to be very creative and well planned out.  I was very interested in the idea and wanted to know where they were going to try to go with it.  Where many movies fall through this movie held strong and makes you wonder if the man is really crazy or not.

Ghosts of Mars

There is no doubt in my mind that John Carpenter's book was probably pretty creepy.  I mean the idea of a spirit leaving a body after it was killed and moving on has been used a thousand times but isn't bad if used right.  I thought that this movie may have had the worst acting and effects in a horror movie in a long time.  I thought that the plot for this movie was good and that it could have been a good movie with a bigger budget and better directing.

Jason X

I thought that this may have been one of the worst movies that I have ever seen.  I would have never paid to see it but a friend of mine wanted to see it.  There are some parts of the movie where you actually laugh and I have never seen a movie with so much meaningless killing.  Each of these movies that they make keeps having more and more of a meaningless plot.  Not to mention the ending hinting that there will be another movie to come.

Event Horizon

I thought that this movie made you jump out of your seat about 10 times.  The thing that I didnt like about it was that if the ship made everyone in the old crew evil and the people from the new crew evil then why didnt everyone turn evil.  The  movie would have been a lot better if they could not find out what happened to the other passengers so they had to go back through the gateway to find out what happened.

The Mothman Prophecies

Video Clip

mothman.jpg

I thought that this movie was a little creepy but only
until you find out a little more about this Mothman.
I thought that it was sort of a Blair Witch story
especially in West Virginia but then I find out that
this Mothman may not even be evil but someone who just
warns you of danger.  I thought that the coincidences
in all these accidents got to be a little much but
that is just the way that the movie was supposed to
be.

Don't Say a Word

I thought that this movie was okay but it had the potential to be a lot better. I guess I went into the movie expecting a little more of a thriller and a little more discretion by the bad guys. I think to make a movie like this good you need to see the bad guys as little as possible. I also thought that the ending was bad because it never shows what happened to the guy that was guarding the two girls. I guess I was expecting it to be a little more suspense and a little less action. I would have also liked to see the crazy girl really be crazy instead of just disturbed by her past.
