Guest Review Post -- Tyler from FunwithHorror.com

Here's a guest post from Tyler (FunwithHorror) on John Carpenter's The Ward! He's one of the coolest horror bloggers I know! Enjoy!




John Carpenter's 'The Ward' is the tale of Kristen, a troubled young woman who can't seem to behave herself. Kristen finds herself a guest of the Oregon Mental Health System. Not sure how she got there or why, Kristen struggles to fit in. Once situated, she attempts to find out what's behind her memory loss. Compounding her troubles, Kristen finds that she and several other female patients are being tormented by a vengeful spirit. As the young ladies grow closer to discovering the origin of the rancorous specter, they grow closer to a premature demise.





I liked The Ward. It's not without its flaws but it's not a bad movie. The effects are well done. The cast, led by Amber Heard, was well chosen. John Carpenter provides keen direction. The premise, although not terribly original, plays out nicely. My only real complaints are the ending, which has been done before, and an overall lack of originality. John Carpenter didn't pen the script, so I cannot blame him for the film's shortcomings. For those, I blame Michael and Sean Rasmussen, who did write the script.





Overall, it's a good watch. It was a thrill to see something new from John Carpenter, even if he didn't pen the script. Also, scream queen Amber Heard turned in a very enjoyable performance. It's not a perfect film, but The Ward is worth ninety minutes of your time. It's more thrilling than gory, so it will appeal to more than just the genre enthusiast. If you haven't seen it, take a look. It's currently available to stream on Netflix.


Thanks for the review, Tyler!!

Film Review 23 -- Dylan Dog: Dead of Night!


Check out this past Madhouse Monday's movie review on Dylan Dog: Dead of Night! This film was based off an Italian comic by Tiziano Sclavi! The film was released April 29th, 2011 and directed by Kevin Munroe. This film had potential but it slacked major. Brandon Routh, in my opinion, was just not believable. Possibly if it was someone else casted as Dylan Dog maybe the film would have been successful.

Top 10 Zombie Films!

So, Creepmas is over! I must say, I didn't do a dandy job at sticking with my commitment with these 13 Days of Creepmas posts and do to that, I apologize! Thanks for those who did enjoy the post I did put out! So with that as a treat, I present to you the TOP 10 Zombie films!

This is a list of top 10 zombie films in my opinion that MUST be seen! Every horror fan....not just horror fan, EVERY film fan should really check out these movies as soon as he or she can! That is because I tried to put together a list of zombie films that are more than zombies running a muck, but a real zombie conflict filled with rabid zombie attacks where the living fight purely against the living dead. Doesn't that sound awesome?

Each movie that I listed have a great gore and kills, but I will not spoil that for you! As always, I rather you check it out yourself and you can be the judge, if you please! Anyhow, just remember while watching these awesome films, who recommended it! ;)


10. 28 Days Later -- 2002

An amazing updated zombie flick that is full of gore and running zombies. Yes, I know some people do not believe in running zombies...but aren't they cool? This film added something spectacular to zombies and indeed added fear to these new breed of zombies!


9. Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things -- 1973

It's a B rated film but should definitely not be swept underneath the rug! This movie involved an ancient ritual and clearly shows WHY you shouldn't do that kinda stuff!


8. Night of the Living Dead -- 1968

The black and white in this film shouldn't stop you from checking out this classic. It even still holds itself up high compared to the movies today.


7. Night of the Living Dead -- 1990

This is Tom Savini's magical, horror-a-tastical remake that was meant to be a tribute to the classic and truly is! Very entertaining and perhaps better than the original!


6. Day of the Dead -- 1985

George Romero did some awesome camera tricks to create the zombie infestation in this classic. This is a great living dead classic that shows how quick and easy zombie infestation can occur and, of course, what happens.


5. Dawn of the Dead -- 1979

Another Romero one and slightly different from many, MANY horror movies. Romero shoots this film a majority of the time in broad daylight or bright areas. It's very rare that a horror director isn't interested in the shadows or darkness. Very awesome that he did that. This film is kinda silly...well at least to me, but then again I laugh at inappropriate moments/things anyway. It focuses on a mall with survivors trapped inside and zombies nearby.


4. Dead Alive -- 1992

If you can honestly stomach gore...this film is the one for you!


3. Zombieland -- 2009

In comedy/horror the world is over run by zombies and there are rules to follow!


2. The Return of the Living Dead -- 1985

An awesome CLASSIC and a must see! "Send more paramedics!"


1. Zombie -- 1979

Lucio Fulci....allows all your gore dreams to come true! Fulci's zombies are oober slow, even slower than Romero's zombies, which isn't a bad thing! As the army of zombies come shuffling all stiff towards you, watch out, you may be creeped out!


Clearly! If you made it through the whole list...you MUST be a zombie fan! Well rock on. I know I missed many, but just let me know what your TOP 10 Zombie Films are!

Day 5: Saint Nick theatrical trailer -- 13 DAYS OF CREEPMAS


Here's a great film recommendation for Creepmas! Saint Nicholas is not the good-hearted children's friend as people think he is. In reality he is a cruel bloodthirsty bishop! On the night of December 5th there's a full moon and Saint Nick will try to slaughter as many children as possible!

This movie was written and directed by Dick Maas. It was released in Holland last November. The trailer is below and it has English subtitles, enjoy and you can thank me later!

Day 1: Top Christmas Horrors !! -- 13 DAYS OF CREEPMAS

Tis the season to be jolly and, of course, to endure fake smiles. HOWEVER! That doesn't stop the Christmas season because around this time there are plenty of Christmas themed horror movies to watch! So, with that, we shall begin this spectacular bloody, horror Christmas list. This is in NO order particular, just a list from which you can pick whatever movie(s) you wish to watch! There are some cheesy ones in this list...but I adore cheese.




Two Front Teeth - 2006

On the night before Christmas, a tabloid writer haunted by the Ghosts of Christmas past is investigating a Yule Tide conspiracy.... Oh yeah and there's a blood sucking, vampire Santa Claus involved, along with other demonic creatures. o_o!!



Silent Night Deadly Night - 1984

A teenager's parents were murdered. And while in the orphanage, the teenager was abused by the Mother Superior. This tormented teen decides to go on a murderous rampage dressed as Santa.



To All Goodnight - 1980

Christmas break at the Calvin Finishing School for Girls is visited by a pair of vengeful psychopaths both dressed as Santa Claus.



Gremlins - 1984

A man buys a cute, furry little creature with huge eyes (mogwai) as a Christmas present for his son. The boy is told to keep the pet away from water, out of the light and never to feed it after midnight. Of course, those rules aren't followed! So yeah, the creatures produce half a dozen furry replicas of itself and continue to multiply and turn the small town upside-down.



Black Christmas - 1974

It's time for Christmas break and the sorority sisters make plans for the holiday, but the strange anonymous phone calls are beginning to put them on edge. A missing sorority girl, and dead bodies popping up among other things...! A true classic and a must see for the season!



The Gingerdead Man - 2005

Three executed murderers whose remains are stored in a vat of pastry batter return as evil cookie monsters ready to kill. Lol.



Santa's Slay - 2005

A black comedy about Santa Claus, which is played the wrestler Goldberg, turns out to be the son of Satan and not the harmless old fellow we know and love. So yeah, he goes on a deadly rampage.



Don't Open Till Christmas - 1984

Someone with no Christmas spirit is killing anyone in a Santa suit in London. One man has to stop this killer before he makes his exploits an annual tradition.



Jack Frost - 1996

A horror movie involving a killer snow man. Look out!



Christmas Evil (You Better Watch Out) 1980

It's a dark comedic horror but has awesome Christmas horror efforts. It's a story of a boy who loves Christmas but is scarred when he learns that Santa is not real. When he gets older, he becomes a toy-maker and tries to make the Christmas spirit a reality. He becomes obsessed with the behavior of children and the quality of the toys he makes. Fast forward...he's on to become a serial killer.

In honor of Thanksgiving!

Let us all give thanks! Yes, to our families, friends, homes, BLOGS, horror movie collections, and most importantly, the directors that made our beloved horrors possible. I thought it would be a super idea to give thanks to all the directors that I feel made my horror world even more fantastical!


Wes Craven

There are so many films he directed that I absolutely love, & he made horror history that spanned beyond the die hard horror fans. So! Let us GIVE thanks!


Alfred Hitchcock

Of course, I'm going to want to give thanks to a legend! An all-around awesome filmmaker. I aspire to inspire many people as he did! He created shocking suspense with an eerie feel...AND some of his movies were in black & white. Amazing!


Lucio Fulci

The man of gore! Without him I would have never known my true love for gore. So, thank you, Mr. Fulci. Thank you for rocking my life!


Dario Argento

Mr. Argento is one of my favorite directors, and I can watch ANY of his movies with no complaints. He's also a fantastical writer. His films are usually very awesome with explosive endings. Oh, and let's not forget his snazzy music!


Sam Raimi

Not only did director one of my favorites Evil Dead but he introduced us ALL to Bruce Campbell!


John Carpenter

I love how diverse his horror movies are, to me--you never know what you're going to get with him. He's extreme influential plus he came out with many cult classic horrors, in MY opinion!


George Romero

Another legend! He's like the zombie king or something. He totally deserves for us to be thankful for him!


Tobe Hooper

He truly understands violence & gore, and if that was not in horrors...it would be a cold lonely horror world.


Eli Roth

I don't care if some people don't like him. I like him and therefore, he's on my list of people I'm thankful for. I'm thankful that he truly worked his way into the horror world. He wasn't always directing, and for someone who didn't start off as a director, I truly believe he's doing an awesome job.


Ti West

After seeing The House of the Devil, I knew automatically that if I ever did a Thanksgiving list of honor, he'd be on it! He was the director, writer and editor of The House of the Devil! I believe he's going to be a legend one day too.


I decided not to let this list be a count down because this isn't necessarily about my favorite directors or who I think is the best. This is simply on who I'm thankful for!


Gobble, gobble...

Which director are you most thankful for & why?

The Active Set - Famous For Dying


I feel so awful because a couple of weeks ago I received an email from Steve from IndieRoque. He gave me a link to an awesome band to check out. The band is called The Active Set and the video he wanted me to check out was called Famous For Dying. This video rocked my life--not only for the music, but also because the video has zombies in it!

I enjoyed the song and I enjoyed the music video. So! I thought it'll be an awesome idea to share it with everyone here. I thank Steve for putting me on to an awesome song! I hope you all enjoy the song/video and you can thank me later! :P


The Active Set may be too mainstream to be true 'indie'; however, they have enough quirky and unconventional bits, making them too indie for the mainstream. Result: Limited fanbase!

Good luck to anyone who watches this movie! Let me know your thoughts!

Film Review 20 -- The Shining


REDRUM

I did a review on Monday on Stanley Kurbrick's The Shining! A film that is filled with ghost, a magical child, dripping dead old women, splashing blood and oh so much more! I thought it was a good movie but I'm not crazy about it. One thing, I was crazy about was the soundtrack. The score to my ears was simply perfection.


Have you seen this movie? Or read the novel?

Upcoming Horrors of November 2011!

Whether if it's straight to DVD or the theaters, here is the REALLY short list of horrors coming out this month! If you already checked any of the two out please let me know! Or if you plan on checking any out...let me know anyway.


Melancholia - Release date: November 14th, 2011

This movie will be released limitedly. This film is described as a beautiful movie about the end of the world. The story is about how a large object from outer space approaching Earth that will affect us all. Doesn't really sound like horror but I do think there will be some horrific points.


11-11-11 - Release date: November 11th, 2011

11-11-11 will take on the idea of 11 gates of Heaven and how on 11:11 on the 11th day of the 11th month, the 11th gate will open up and something from another world will enter the earthly realm for 49 minutes. I'm hoping this movie doesn't let me down, I always had a fascination with 11:11.

FILM -- Bereavement


This movie was released August 30th, 2011 and directed by Stevan Mena. The movie first starts off in 1989 with a six year old boy named Martin Bristoll who is kidnapped right from his backyard in Minersville, Pennsylvania. The man who steals lil' Martin is a psychotic hermit named Graham Sutter. He keeps Martin imprisoned on his farm, forcing Martin to witness and even participate in some of his random terror acts. Each of his victim’s scream and beg for mercy but no one can hear anything since they are in middle of the country, nothing around for miiiiiiles.

Five years go by and Martin’s disappearance from his backyard remains a mystery UNTIL!...Allison Miller, a 17-year-old girl who comes to live with her Uncle, Aunt & young cousin. Like a nosey a-hole, she explores her new surroundings...like making out with some random boy with a nice car, walking home from school which is like...miles away, and even going jogging with her breasts all out. Then, being nosey once again, Allison discovers things aren't right at the farmhouse miles down the road, and because of that, her curiosity may kill her along with anyone else who knows. Not even that loves her--just KNOWS her.












Ok, so I wanted to see this movie ever since I heard about it and I must say I was so disappointed. I'm down for movies that want to have some tension building up, but the full result of the movie just wasn't worth it. I was bored during this movie and it really made me sleepy.
Also...I don't get why they kept on showing the girl Allison's hard nipples. Like, I don't get it. I thought I was watching a horror. It just kinda comes off desperate that the director would keep on showing that. Any girl with big breasts, more importantly any girl with common sense, would NOT leave her house without a better bra for support since she's going running--SPORTS BRA!

I don't get what the hype was about. There was great gore & all but overall, it felt very SyFyish. And that's technically not a bad thing! I guess the only good thing was the atmosphere...it was beautiful and the air looked fresh.

Point is, I wouldn't recommend this movie. If it comes on TV and you're cooking dinner or something then sure, you can watch it, I suppose while you cook. I wouldn't recommend you spending any money on this film--even if it's a dollar, rent something else.
