Child’s Play (2019)

Child’s Play (2019) is released on DVD/Blu-Ray today, Sept 24th. This is a re-imagining the classic. I would suggest going into this movie expecting something new. It is much different that the classic, and if you go in expecting more of the same you will leave disappointed.

On the other hand if you go in expecting something new, you may find you might just like the new movie. If you’ve seen the movie leave a comment and let me know what you think of it

Oh and to top it off Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) is the voice Chucky. So there is that.

Childs Play 2019

Karen, a single mother, gifts her son Andy a Buddi doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature. A contemporary re-imagining of the 1988 horror classic.

Right now the movie is not available to stream or rent online, but you can cuy it over at Amazon both digitally and DVD/Blu-Ray

Zombieland: Double Tap Preview

Way back in 2009 we got the first Zombieland, and finally it is time for the second one to come in October. With the four main actors returning from the first : Emma Stone, Woody Harrleson, Jesse Eisenberg and Abigall Breslin, I am sure they can hit it out of the park again.

Zombieland: Double Tap Official Trailer

Official Zombieland: Double Tap synopsis:

Through comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland, the Zombie slayers must face off against many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.

If you are like me you can’t wait to sit down and watch this in October.

The Shallows Screen Cap 2

The Shallows Preview

An injured surfer stranded 200 yards from safety. What stands between her and safety? A great white shark who has already bitten her and killed two other surfers.  What will she do? How will she survive? The Shallows surfs into release on June 29th, so get the popcorn ready.

the Shallows movie sitll

In the taut thriller The Shallows, when Nancy (Blake Lively) is surfing on a secluded beach, she finds herself on the feeding ground of a great white shark. Though she is stranded only 200 yards from shore, survival proves to be the ultimate test of wills, requiring all of Nancy’s ingenuity, resourcefulness, and fortitude.

 

All the trailer really shows is Nancy stranded on a rock and then on a buoy, so it makes you wonder how this is going to make a full featured film. That being said if it can be pulled off looks to make a splash this summer. Watch the trailer below and see for yourself.

Top 7 Werewolf Movies

 

Everyone (well ok maybe not everyone…) loves werewolf movies. I know I sure do.  Here are 7 of my favorites, please comment or tweet what you favorite ones are!

 

#7 Wer (2014)

Wer

Wer made in 2014, makes it the newest movie on the list. A definite fresh take on a werewolf movie, you won’t find any agonizing transformations in this one. The script keeps the movie going at a good and steady pace with no low points once it gets going. The weakest thing in the movie for me would be the opening credits. Keep watching past hem and you are in for a treat you might not have seen before.

#6 Silver Bullet (1985)

silver-bullet

One of the few Stephen King adaptations in which the script was actually written by King, Silver Bullet captures his rich, nostalgia-strewn portrait of small-town life and the paranoia, anguish and anger caused when a werewolf begins picking off residents right and left. At its heart, though, it’s a good old-fashioned murder mystery with just enough humor to lighten the mood.

#5 Dog Soldiers (2002)

dog soldiers

Neil Marshall’s directorial debut is a turbo-charged action bonanza that plays like Night of the Living Dead meets Aliens, with werewolves. A group of British soldiers on a training mission in the Scottish Highlands encounter a pack of werewolves and end up barricading themselves in a farmhouse, not realizing that it’s the wolves’ home. Tongue-in-cheek humor and imposing creature design make this one of the most entertaining monster movies of all time.

#4 Underworld (2003)

Underworld

Packed with action with both Werewolves and Vampires. Brings in a Romeo and Juliet take on it. The “design” of the werewolves probably one of the better ones that I’ve seen. Great special effects that don’t totally rely on CGI.

#3 Ginger Snaps (2000)

Ginger Snaps

A darkly humorous streak colors this Canadian  production (which spawned two sequels) that smartly parallels lycanthropy with puberty. Morbid teen aged sisters Ginger and Brigitte find themselves growing apart after Ginger is bitten by a werewolf and begins to undergo unusual “changes.”

#2 The Howling (1981)

The Howling

Scary and suspenseful with outstanding effects, yet still peppered with self-referential comedic touches,  The Howlingis an absorbing story of a TV news reporter (Dee Wallace) who ventures to a psychiatric resort after suffering amnesia and discovers that it’s overrun by werewolves.

#1 An American Werewolf in London (1981)

American Werewolf In London

Director John Landis (Animal House, The Blues Brothers) brought his comedic roots to this tale of an American tourist who’s bitten by a werewolf and is then haunted by violent nightmares and ghosts urging him to kill himself to end the curse. Despite the humor, it’s the groundbreaking, grisly special effects of the transformation scenes that most identify this fan favorite.
