I'm sitting here watching Criminal Minds reruns on Ion, may the Lord forgive me. Anyway, it reminded me of some episodes from years ago, when C. Thomas Howell played a serial killer. The episodes were in seasons 4 and 5, and on in season 9... I don't know if I ever saw that one. Anyway, as a fan of The Hitcher (1986), I remember it was pretty interesting to see him play the killer, not the good guy. I thought he did a pretty good job, too. He tried to play it for laughs a LITTLE, but was mo... (Continue)

Still one of my favorite vampire movies.

Very unique and one of a kind for the genre.

Romero has stated that he believes character isn't truly a vampire, but the film itself leaves it open to the viewer's interpretation.

What do you think of the movie?

Do you have a point of view on whether Martin is a vampire?

There is a significant amount of the film that demystifies both faith and also vampire myths, so for me that leans heavily towards Martin just being a human killer.

The county fair was this past week where I live so I got to thinking about fair-themed horror movies. The two main ones I can think of are The Funhouse and Strangers on a Train. Carnival of Souls maybe fits to a point, since it was centered around an abandoned amusement park.

There has to be many others I don't know about.

My first impression is that it's probably the best of the new trilogy. It's not entirely a "war" movie, though, but more like a "Battle" movie. However, that title is already taken, so we're left with something more extreme. WAR.

Actually, the movie is more like a prison / concentration camp movie, which reminded me of "Conquest". That was the most violent entry in the original series, scoring a whopping PG-13 rating, but this one is considerably darker. There's a lot of physical abuse towards these apes, which reminded me of the conditioning sequences in Conquest, but this is worse.

Woody Harrelson sure does hate those apes. (Continue)

Do you know of any unfinished movies? And by 'unfinished', I mean movies that had some kind of footage shot but were never continued for some reason, leaving us with only images or clips.

imageOne such movie that I can think of is Killer: Malevolence 3, the sequel to Malevolence and Bereavement. According to director Stevan Mena in a Blumhouse... (Continue)

If you happen to have a copy of The Dead Zone, or if your local library has a copy, you might find this interesting.

I was just re-reading The Dead Zone this weekend, and in Chapter 21, Section 3 (each chapter is subdivided into numbered sections), there are a few paragraphs that make me think of the movie Dreamscape. They are on page 317, in my edition. They describe Johnny Smith's visions of the world after Greg Stillson is elected, which is a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The book is a... (Continue)
