Rating: ★★½☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Review

The was the weirdest film captivating everything from emotion downloads and overloads, love, hate, murder, early Scifi, and everything in between.  If you like old weird stuff that is actually pretty good to watch, than you’ll like this movie.  It’s one that you’ll put on and start cleaning your house, go walk your dog, or fall asleep.  It has the potential, very little potential, to keep you awake with its boring story line and awful antics.  It does have areas that make you laugh due to how corny things were done so long ago, but who knows – this was probably a really scary movie during our parents (maybe even our grandparents) day.

Review of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Horror Comments Off on Review of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Sweeney Todd The Demon Barber of Fleet StreetRating: ★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Review

The movie “The demon barber of fleet street” released on march 1936, in UK. And it is a mixer of crime and horror, who murdered many customers for their money; this has done in very Dickensian style. Todd slaughter performed well he had the ability to make a cardboard villain into a full blooded character at the same movement he is the person who scare you upon first introduction without really trying. Tod slaughter has his reputation for his film unfortunate that he never perform well in Hitchcock film, everyone can watch this movie who likes to watch crime and horror films, their can enjoy the film with more tension that what is going to be happen next.

Reason to Watch

Every artist in the film had involved in their character.

Context

The film made in UK During the period of 1936.

What You Need to Get Through This Movie

we must be careful while we are going to barber shop.

Trivia

Tod slaugher had reputation for the film “unfortunate” that he never performed well in a Hitchcock film

Educational Content

Becareful regarding the strangers while going to other places. anywhere in the world

Justification for Rating

For me this movie deserves a 7/10. It is one of those films that just seems to show us where a lot of ideas have come from in many of our modern films. Hordes of zombies attack a lone person(s) in the dead of night, dozens of blood/flesh thirsty zombies surrounding a car are locked inside… sound familiar? Most of us can relate this to a lot of modern zombie and horror flicks. If you are in the mood to just sick back and enjoy a movie without too much thought on the plot and possible holes, you will enjoy this movie.

Review of Nightmare Castle

Horror Comments Off on Review of Nightmare Castle

Rating: ★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Review

I’m beginning to grow more fond of old horror films, especially with my disillusionment with modern horror. And this film is one of the better old horror films I’ve found. A mad scientist finds his wife cheating on him with the butler. After torturing them with electric shock and other gruesome methods (whippings, beatings) he finally kills them. But to get the inheritance from his wife’s family, he has to marry her lunatic sister who is now cursed with the spirit of his dead wife. On top of this, we have an old women who remains young with the blood of the dead wife, who feels the dried and cold blood inside her. Sounds good, right? And it is. The only thing that could have been better was the dubbing from Italian to English, but after the first five minutes you hardly notice anymore. The black and white really sets a mood and the fact the blood is black (because it can’t be red) makes it seem even more sinister than it had to be. Recommended for those who are sick of Hollywood pumping horror films out for little girls.

Reason to Watch

Barbara Steele has a dual role in this Italian production concerning a mad scientist who tortures his unfaithful wife and her lover to death only to have them return from the grave for revenge. With a score by Ennio Morricone. I advice for you to watch also.

Review of Night of the Living Dead

Night of the Living DeadRating: ★★★★½☆☆☆☆☆

Review

Johnny and Barbra go to place flowers on their fathers grave in a rural Pennsylvania graveyard. Something odd and unexplained starts to happen during their trip and the recently deceased start to get up and attack the living; eating their flesh. Our main characters run to an old abandoned farm house and hole up hoping to last through the night. Soon other survivors begin to emerge from the surrounding area. They must learn to ban together and fight for survival and peace among themselves in order to survive the night of the living dead.

Reason to Watch

This movie made the zombie sub genre start. George Romero did a fantastic job on this low budget, yet thought provoking, film. Definitely worth the watch.

Context

This movie was set, and shot, in Zelienople, Pennsylvania. It was shot in black and white in 1968. Also noted, the film has an impact on the Vietnam era along with some noted racism issues.

Most Memorable Quote(s)

Johnny: “They’re coming to get you, Barbra!”
Ben: “Now get the hell down in the cellar. You can be the boss down there, but I’m boss up here!”

What You Need to Get Through This Movie

In order to get through this movie:
1.) Watch it alone
2.) At night
3.) With no lights
4.) Minimal interruptions
5.) Lots of snacks!
=D
Enjoy.

Trivia

Continuity: Ben finds a pair of shoes and puts them on Barbara’s feet, but in the very next shot where she’s sitting on the couch, she is not wearing shoes nor are they any in the shot with her.

Educational Content

1.) Never wear heels in rural PA.
2.) Shock can turn you into a blithering idiot.
3.) Little girls can never be trusted.
4.) Spades: Not just for gardening!

Justification for Rating

I would give it a 9/10 just because it’s still a great movie by today’s standards. We still fight a lot of the same issues. Great gore! Who wouldn’t want to see a movie that shocked the masses?

Review of Manos: The Hands of Fate

Horror Comments Off on Review of Manos: The Hands of Fate

Manos - The Hands of FateRating: ★½☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Review

This is one of those movies that is so bad that you HAVE to see it. Seriously, there is a reason that Manos: Hands of Fate has been named as the worst movie of all time. Bad music, bad acting, bad camera work, terribly boring driving sequences – Manos has it all!
The premise of the movie is a small family (husband, wife, and daughter) are on a roadtrip vacation. However, everything goes awry when they stop at a small inn to ask for directions. They meet Torgo, the goatman-esque secretary, and end up having to stay the night. NO MORE FUN VACATION! “The Master” shows up, who looks like Frank Zappa and wears a ridiculous robe, and torments the family like crazy.

Reason to Watch

If you sit through Manos: Hands of Fate, you will be a B-Movie master. It is infamously bad! However, the character of Torgo provides wonderful comedic relief. Whenever he enters the screen, his theme song is played. Plus he is delightful with his humongous fake knees and wobbly voice.

Context

Manos was filmed in the sixties, a time when many low quality horror films were being churned out. However, Manos takes the crown as being perhaps the worst movie OF ALL TIME.

Most Memorable Quote(s)

“The M-M-M-Master would not approve.”

What You Need to Get Through This Movie

To get through this movie you will need vodka strained seven times through a Brita filter for maximum potency. You will also need four shots of espresso. Drink the vodka until the movie makes sense, and take an espresso shot every time a long driving sequence is initiated so you don’t bore yourself to sleep.

Trivia

Torgo’s theme song was inspired by the life and times of Harriet S. Tubman.

Educational Content

Manos teaches us that getting your hand burned will kill you.

Justification for Rating

Manos gets just half of a point for being a pure pile of poop, but also one bonus point for Torgo, his theme song, and The Master’s wild robes. Hence, two points.
