It seems like everyone has had a chance to watch I Didn’t Come Here To Die except me so I was really excited to finally watch this low budget horror film.
Six young people go into the woods in the middle of nowhere to camp and work on a project for kids. One evening they decide to have some fun and drink and an accident happens which is followed by horrific events.
I think opening scenes of movies are very important and it must be hard to think of a proper opening scene. I can imagine it being the same dreadful process as starting the very first sentence of your school essay. So many things can go wrong. The opening scene of I Didn’t Come Here to Die wasn’t very interesting and it felt long to me but it did intrigue me what happened to the screaming, mutilated lady.
I am someone that was looking forward to Simon Killer, there was just something that really interested me about the story and I wanted to see how Brady Corbet would pull off the character. This has to be one of the weirdest and most uncomfortable cinema experiences I’ve had in a while.
Simon Killer is the story of Simon, he has just broken up with his long-time girlfriend and decides to go to Paris to begin traveling Europe. His break-up was bad and he is finding it hard to get over. Simon is in a place he has never been before, he goes looking around trying to find something to do. Simon meets a prostitute and from there he begins to fall in love with her, and he wants to get to know her even more.
I’m someone that’s a big fan of Chan-wook Park. I really enjoy his vengeance trilogy the most and I very much enjoy his other films. Oldboy is my favourite film. I was really excited to see what Chan-wook Park would do for this film, his first non-Korean film. This is his first English-Language film and I was really worried at first that it would be bad, but this was a film I really enjoyed and it’s definitely going in my favourite films of 2013!
Stoker is the story of a girl called India who loses her father. On the day of his funeral her Uncle Charlie who she never knew existed turns up. Charlie is now going to be living with India and her unstable mother. India begins to suspect something mysterious about Charlie, and she becomes incredibly interested with him.
As most of you know, Evil Dead is not a remake of The Evil Dead (1981), directed by Sam Raimi, but rather a new vision of the film. It has been labeled the most terrifying film you’ll ever experience, which is a hard title to live up to. It stars some rather new faces, including that of Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood, Deadgirl).
It also stars Jane Levy, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore, which altogether will make up our traditional number of 5 people for this not so traditional horror film.
A film I saw at Glasgow Frightfest. On this day I was not ready to have my mind fucked. But Rob Zombie did it, he went there and he messed with my brain.
A box containing a record is sent to Heidi (Heidi is played by Rob Zombie’s wife Sheri Moon Zombie), a radio DJ. The record is by The Lords of Salem, but this record is strange one and when Heidi hears it she begins to see flashbacks of the town and the violent past that it has. That’s when strange things begin to happen!
Mama is a film I was excited to see. I really enjoyed the short film, and I did genuinely find it creepy. So I sat down in the cinema hoping for something the same. The screening was delayed and I just had to sit and wait for fifteen minutes before it actually started. After many trailers, the film finally begun.
The story of two little girls stuck in the woods in a little cabin on their own, they are found years later and are now going to stay with their uncle and his girlfriend. But all along they weren’t really alone in the woods.
I tend not to finish watching trailers of movies because I’m scared I will get spoilt. Some trailers show way too much, they even hint on twists of the movie and it definitely ruins the experience. When I watched Mask Maker’s trailer I stopped after one minute and I knew there was no reason not to watch this film.
