Rate/review the last horror movie you watched/saw

Recommended Posts

Someone posted this on another forum I get on (although not horror specific) and I figured it would be fun to play with on here. I'll start out! You don't have to full blown review, if you're not in a detail oriented mood, you can just "insert movie title here" and put "insert rating on scale of one to ten". 

I've been having a bit of a horror marathon the past few days. The Evil Dead was available for free with ads on Vudu the other day, so I finally watched it. I enjoyed it so much that I bought Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness, which then somehow lead to me buying the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake (which I had also never seen) and Jason X (which I had only ever seen twice and wanted to give a third chance). 

The Evil Dead- 9.5/10

Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn- 8.5/10

Army of Darkness- 7.5/10 

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003 version)- 6.5/10

Jason X- 6/10  I'll comment briefly on this one. I normally would give Jason X a two or a four, but upon a third viewing, I have a lot more tolerance for it. It promised a cheesy Friday movie in space, and that's exactly what it is, and for that, it gets bumped up quite a bit. It also has plenty of cool kills, and the way Jason works in space is actually practical. While far fetched, going the Uber Jason route fits the space theme well.

The last one I saw? Ok 

 

Friday the 13th (2009)

Some good gory kills. I didn’t care too much for the characters but I liked the costume for Jason. A solid 7/10

Death Day

Horror version of Groundhog Day with some comedy elements as well.   A lot of copy and paste and I didn't feel satisfied after the end.

5/10

Annabelle

I thought this was okay, not the best.  Some good jump scares.  Hard to find doll movies these days so I'll bump the score  +1.

7/10

Cult Of Chucky

Somewhat okay chucky movie.  A lot of dark humor.  Not as good as part 1 or 2.

5.5/10

The last horror film I watched was Cult of Chucky, I have seen bits and pieces of all the films but I did do research on what happened.

7.5/10 for me

I'm surprised the franchise wasn't rebooted, but it was creepy and I felt Andy was just a side character even though they made him look like to be the main one. It is scary that Fiona looks a lot like her father, Brad Dourif (voice of Chucky). It had some creative kills (especially the one involving an oxygen tank and glass), but it was cool. Since Curse of Chucky, it seems Don Mancini wants to bring Child's Play back to it's scary roots with some hints of comedy.

Friday the 13th (2009)

Rate: 3/10

Couldn't get 20 minutes into the movie without getting bored and falling asleep. 

Instead go watch The Office, a classic hilarious comedy! Instead of boring myself watching a remake I can watch something that makes me want to p*ss my pants :D

The last Horror??? film I saw was The Belko Experiment. I watched it because a buddy recommended it. Apparently he saw something in it that I didn't. The practical gore effects were done pretty well, some of the humor landed for me (most didn't), and the acting was ok. I'm not sure if the final result was was what James Gunn envisioned when he wrote this but I felt that, overall, the film was just average. I didn't hate it, but I surely won't be buying it. 5/10 for me.

Jason Goes to Hell - 6/10 

I still enjoy the first quarter or so but then it gets worse, im not against the body jumping really but what the hell is with the shaving scene??? How does Jason know how to shave exactly anyways! Lol. This is the first time i have seen the unrated version so the kills are better and i really love his design in this one, i main this look in the game at the moment. So yeah ok movie but definitely still at the bottom of the franchise

Scream 2- 8/10

I loved the plot twists and mystery of this movie, but not as much as the first. Still a great entry, but had a lot more corny parts than the first.

Screams were always great films. Always had wonderful suspense and mystery.

The Bride of Frankenstein - 6/10.

To my surprise, fairly overrated. The comedy stuff really isn't that funny and kept on derailing the good bits. Plus I agree with Karloff, didn't like the Monster talking...saving it for the end would've been better. Expected this to be an absolute solid-gold classic, and instead ehh, I liked the 1931 original better overall.

Fender Bender,

literally one of the worst and most cliche horror movies I have seen.

I’d rate it 3/10 only because of the gay sidekick and his jokes too bad he didn’t survive.

More of a thriller but Open House was pretty cool. Does use some tired movie tropes, but in a way that feels like homage rather than lazy writing. Worth a late night watch at least.

I'd say 6/10

Open House was alright. I give it a 5/10. Once the action started and the ending were good, otherwise it was mediocre in my opinion. Had a friend that really liked it and recommended it so maybe I thought it was too hyped up.

Watched Spring and Resolution in the past two days.

Spring is more of a slow love story, with some horror elements. Beautiful scenery and some great shots. I enjoyed the ending and the sort of mythological horror to it. 7/10

Resolution was alright. It was slow going in the horror aspect, but had a good story. Again, some really nice shots, some cult mystery and a few funny lines between the two friends. The last bit of the movie made it very worth it. There is going to be a movie coming out called The Endless by the same guys, and I believe one of the two main characters returns to play the same role so I am assuming this is a prequel. 7/10

Both of these movies are by the same two guys working together. I really enjoy that they create stories that seem out of the horror genre, but mix in something darker. Both films have mythological horror elements and aren't simple slasher films. Neither are very brutal, but more of mixed genre with good direction. I can't wait to see their new film The Endless which seems to be doing very well at film festivals.

Wrong Turn

A fairly average 2000s slasher that essentially is a remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes, but in West Virginia. The main leads couldn't act, and there was really only one likeable character. I felt an opportunity was missed with the hill billies. We don't really learn much about them or get any sort of characterization. I understand one of them returns in all the sequels/prequels, but I could honestly barely tell the difference between them, and they seemed very interchangeable. Still, the kills were okay and it had a few tense moments.

A Bay of Blood (AKA; Twitch of the Death Nerve) - 8/10

Really gory Italian horror that could be considered one of the first real slasher films as it was made in 1971!

also a must watch for Friday fans as a couple of kills from this were used in the first couple of Friday films

I watched Scream 3 and 4. Quick re-review of the whole series. 

 

Scream- 9/10

Scream 2- 8.5/10

Scream 3- 8.5/10

Scream 4- 7.5/10

 

4 was my least favorite. I felt like there was a lot of rehashing and the whole "follow the remake" seemed like a way to recycle old ideas and then cover it up. It was clever, but it didn't work as well. I had no trouble figuring out who one of the two killers was. One was really surprising, but the other one I saw coming.
