Movie Review:The Cabin in the Woods

January 9, 2013 in Blogs, Buck, Movie Reviews, Movies

The Cabin In The Woods
Year: 2011
Genre: Horror/Mystery/Thriller
Runtime: 95mins
Rating: R
IMDB Score: 7.3/10 (91,000+ Votes)
Director(s): Drew Goddard
Writer(s): Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard

Plot/Synopsis:
Five friends go for a break at a remote cabin in the woods, where they get more than they bargained for. Together, they must discover the truth behind the cabin in the woods.

Forethought(s):
I like the way Whedon writes and he did do Buffy and Angel so I’m guessing there’s going be that vibe to the movie and there’s nothing wrong with that at all.

Fun Fact/Trivia:
The studio wanted to convert the movie to 3D but Whedon and Goddard both had objections so the plans were eventually canned.

Stars of the movie: Kristen Connolly,Chris Hemsworth,Anna Hutchison.Fran Kranz and Jesse Williams

The Breakdown:
TTT(Time to fist titty)=41mins and 2x seconds.
TTK(Time to first kill)=13mins in and it was a hawk by an invisible fence but the first first kill comes at  43minutes-ish. The kill sequence comes in just after the toplessness.

Do I start by comparing this movie to Battle Royal,Scooby-Doo or Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show? You know what? It’s actually all those rolled into one. It’s B.R in the sense that it’s a type of game and by killing people the world is saved(I know it’s not just like BR). It’s like Scooby with the group they have. There’s a Velma,Daphne,Shaggy,Fred and a male Velma. It’s like Buffy due to the writing. In fact I really think this (the movie) is a left over idea from the show that Whedon couldn’t do since it was so adult.

There’s a few things I did not like about this movie but they weren’t massive issues. One was just how long it takes to become a horror movie. I would say it took about 37 minutes to become horror-ish. The first 36 were definitely a normal drama type of movie but then the eerieness sets in and then some tits and a kill. Can’t get much more horror than that. After all that the movie is total horror but not all slash,stab behead type of way…..but there is a beheading. My second issue was the lighting. Some of the scenes were just way to dark. I understand that lack of light can enhance the mood but so can using light. I tend to get creeped out more with things that can be seen than those that can not. Finally is the teasing of all types of monsters. The main bad in this movie is a family of zombies,however,late in the film we find out that there are TONS of other monsters that could have been used but won’t and the way we find this out is that they’re put on showcase and then used to kill people near the end of the movie. Some of the monsters that are used but not long enough are:Mermen,huge Man-Bat like thing,a Pinhead-esq creature who I deemed BladeHead,a killer clown and the list goes on and on.

There’s a lot I liked about this film. One of them is oddly enough one of the things I didn’t like about the film,the lack of monster use. Sure I didn’t like the amount of time that the other monsters were given but I did love the range of monsters they showed off. I also really enjoyed the acting/casting. They got the right looking actors for the roles they have. The writing was another thing I really liked,it really was like watching Buff the Vampire Slayer TV show all over again,just without all the pop culture references.

Best line/exchange in the movie:
Marty:Ok, I’m drawing a line in the fucking sand. Do NOT read the Latin!

The Verdict:
This movie hits the g-spot for so many types of fans it’s crazy. I think if you can find this fun,original-ish modern throw back of a horror flick then by all means pick it up. This is a must own for horror heads without a doubt.

I give this movie 4 as ifs out of 5.

The Walking Dead – Midseason Recap

December 14, 2012 in Ash Hamilton, Television

20121214-221940.jpg

Andrea manages to screw yet another psycho… Rick plays telephone with a head full of crazy… Herschel saves an assload on new shoes.. Carl is definitely NOT in the house and suddenly has a penchant for Alpo. What do these things have in common? They all happened in the first half of season 3 of AMC’s beloved zombie drama The Walking Dead. Season 2, which was largely characterized by the core group’s ambitions to turn Herschel’s farm into a safe haven allowing them to find some semblance of normal life, saw our survivors on the run with nowhere to turn and nowhere to go. We got out first glimpse of fan-favorite Michone and the rumblings from the rumor mill hinted at the introduction of The Governor, a character that followers of the comic we’re salivating to see brought to the screen. So with expectations high, how has the first half of the uber popular comic adaptation held up to our expectations?

Luckily, and seemingly against all odds with the departure of show frontrunner and creative force Frank Darabont, TWD has managed not only to continue to raise the bar for cable drama, but has managed to mainstream zombie horror to such an extent that set top “zombie survival” games bearing the TWD logo can be seen gracing the end caps of Walmarts everywhere. So good has the series been in fact that fans (both living and undead) are frothing at the mouth for the series’ return in February. For those just now jumping on the bandwagon, here’s the gist of what you’ve missed so far.

Herschel’s farm, now overrun with the living dead is no longer a safe haven and the group sets their sites on a prison, once secure not now playing host to a gaggle of walkers. Rick and his new brand of kickassery go in machetes and fire pokers a-blazin and round up the last biters there only to find that some of the prison’s former inmates are still alive. Rick ignores their pleas to join the group and soon the small group ex-cons learn of Rick’s protective side when it comes to the safety of his group. Meanwhile, in an undisclosed location, Andrea and Michone hole up in what looks to be a bar/live bait shop as Andrea battles a horrible fever. We are soon introduced to Michone’s resourcefulness when it comes to the Walkers and the two’s friendship is tested as Merle, long absent brother of Daryl is reintroduced, snagging the duo in the woods and bringing them before his new employer: The Governor.

Back in the prison things turn from bad to worse as Herschel loses his leg AND seeking vengeance on RIck for hastily kicking him out, one of the former inmates lets a mess of walkers back into the compound, ultimately resulting in the death of Ricks wife Lori as she gives birth to her daughter. Rick, upon hearing the news of his wife’s passing distances himself from the group, eventually retreating into his own psychosis, talking to the deceased on a phone from within the prison’s walls.

With a newborn added to our ragtag group, formula is the newest grocery list item and Glenn and Maggie are the next to fall prey to Merle’s quest to find his brother while out scouting for the new baby’s food. The two are taken back to the Governor’s  mecca in deadland, Woodbury, and tortured as to the whereabouts of their group. Michone stumbles upon the Governor’s secret, catching him interacting with the reanimated corpse of his daughter and decides a quick exit from Woodbury is on the agenda. Andrea, who has found solace in the arms of their would be captor disagrees with Michone’s decision and the two part. Michone is pursued through the woods by Merle and a group of the governor’s men, outwitting them and eventually making her way to the very prison her pursuers are looking for. Formula in hand, she is taken in under the pretense that the core group is not accepting new members, only to aid them in rescuing Glenn and Maggie from Woodbury. Our climax sees a daring rescue, Michone’s showdown with the governor (he loses an eye and the corpse of his daughter in the mele), Merle’s reunion with Daryl (and the governor’s eagerness to betray him in an attempt to spin their family reunion into a terrorist conspiracy resulting in an attack on the town), Rick’s road back from temporary insanity and the introduction of yet another comic book character, Tyrese.

The show, which continues to wow us and prove that the genre, even in the midst of our current zombie over saturation, is rife with great minds that elevate the source material to new heights. The comic, The Walking Dead is available monthly from Robert Kirkman and Image Comics. The AMC original series returns from its mid-season hiatus this February 10th, 2013.

Exclusive Interview with Pet Sematary Documentarians

December 9, 2012 in Exclusives, Interview

Pet Sematary, although a celebrated King adaptation, is often an overlooked horror film in and of itself. Documentarian John Campopiano hopes to change that with his film UNEARTHED & UNTOLD: THE PATH TO PET SEMATARY. We caught up with John for an exclusive q&a on the project and gave him the opportunity to explain his passion and what we can expect from the forthcoming film.

 

What are the both of you setting out to do with this documentary?

JC: Justin and I are taking a deeper look into the making of the film from multiple angles, two of which are the memories of the Maine locals and those of the cast & crew. What stories and memories do local Maine residents have of the production? How was the production documented in local television, magazine, and newspaper stories? What did the production do for the county of Hancock and the greater Maine communities? These are just a few of the questions we are exploring in our documentary. In essence, what we’re hoping to do is show the unique bridging of a relatively small Hollywood production with a small Maine community who, until this very day, still thinks so highly of its involvement in the film.

 

Why “Pet Sematary” instead of King’s other works?

JC: There are several answers to this question. First, this film is an oft-overlooked horror film of the 1980s. While there have been many “making-ofs” and documentaries for the more well-known classics of that decade (Nightmare on Elm Street to name one) in many cases Pet Sematary hasn’t received the credit or attention it deserves. So, as huge fans of the film we’ve set out to make something that we ourselves would love to sit down and watch. Second, King is extremely prolific and of course there are many other great films from his cannon that would be worthy of a retrospective documentary. However, this film holds particular meaning for Justin and I – a big part of that meaning is wrapped up in nostalgia and our memories of watching the film when we were younger. The fact that it’s also a horror film shot in our native New England only deepens our appreciation for it.

 

What locations have you visited during filming?

JC: We have many of the locations covered and documented – locations we’re positive that fans won’t expect and, quite frankly, locations Justin and I never thought we would find. We’ve tireless scoured maps of Maine, spoken with countless Maine locals, and even gotten our hands on original location charts and maps used by cast and crew during the production. Showcasing the filming locations will be an important part of this documentary.

 

Do you have plans to send the film to any festivals or theaters?

JC: It’s hard to say what will happen and where things will go. Of course Justin and I have hopes and goals for the project, but a lot of those things are tied up and dependent upon other things. What I can say for absolute certain is that we’re going to do whatever we can to ensure that as many fans of the film see the final product – what that ends up meaning we don’t quite know yet. We’ll all have to wait and see.

 

What are your favorite scenes in “Pet Sematary”?

JC: I really like the flashback scenes. I also absolutely love the shot of Miko wearing his blue suit, wielding a scalpel, telling Denise that he’s brought her something. It’s a truly disturbing and bizarre moment – I love it. But too be honest, I think of my favorite moments from the film in terms of specific shots as opposed to whole scenes. I love the shot of Fred up at the Micmac burial ground where the sun is setting on him and he’s lighting up a cigarette – great composition work by DP Peter Stein. Another favorite shot of mine is when Fred and Dale are walked back up to the house after burying Church and the kitchen phone rings. We get the point of view from the porch then we quickly pan back through the screen door and into the kitchen as Dale bursts in to answer the phone. Pet Sematary is full of interesting and creative shots.

 

Will the documentary focus at all on the sequel or strictly the first film?

JC: No, there’ll be no mention of the sequel. We soon learned after jumping into this project that we had quite a bit to tackle with just the first film. We’ll leave Pet Sematary II to someone else

 

Who have you spoken to for the documentary so far (or planning to speak to)?

JC: We’ve interviewed quite a few people from cast and crew to Maine locals who were either in the film, worked on the production, or admired it from a distance. The list is probably too long to write here, but everyone from primary cast members including Dale Midkiff, Denise Crosby, Miko Hughes and others, actors with smaller roles such as Susan Blommaert (who played Missy Dandridge) to crewmembers and many others, will all make an on-camera appearance in this documentary. Check out our official Facebook page for more details on those who have given on-camera interviews as well as those who have contributed to the documentary in other ways.

 

What other projects have the both of you worked on together?

JC: None! Though we had been friends for a few years prior to starting this project, this is our first documentary together.

New Image and Nasty Footage Leak from Evil Dead (2013) [UPDATED]

December 9, 2012 in Chandler Bullock, Movie News, Movies

You can firmly place this update into the “hell fucking yes!!!” category. Whether you love or hate remakes of already decent-to-amazing films, the upcoming Evil Dead remake from producer Sam Raimi and director Fede Alvarez looks to be shaping up as the perfect formula for gore and terror fans out there.

Recently the film’s Facebook page dropped a wonderfully twisted first look at the reimagined deadites from this film. The image alone is proof enough that the “splatstick” humor we all know and love from the Evil Dead franchise has been set aside for a more viscious and vile tone. I for one am all for that. Don’t get me wrong, I adore both Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness, but I really miss the severely disturbing tone that was originally attempted in the first film. The originally series is a classic, but sometimes there truly is room for a reinterpretation, and I think this franchise is certainly open to one after 20 years of nothing going on. Alvarez seems to have the right idea with his approach to this one.

But wait…there’s more.

Soon after the image was released officially on Facebook, a teaser trailer was shown at the NY Comic Con. Horror websites all over the net were reporting on what was seen there. Sadly we had no one available for the con, but fret not. The footage was kindly “stolen” by a bootlegger and uploaded for all to see in its fuzzy and amazingly gory glory. After seeing the footage a few times I can hardly contain my excitement. I can’t wait to see this same footage released in HD and even more so I can not wait for the April 12, 2013 release (April 25, 2013 here in the Netherlands). Check out the image and footage*** below!

In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

 

***UPDATE: The full red band trailer has been released by Sony Pictures on the web!!! You can check it out in all its HD glory below. (Yes it’s the same footage that was leaked from NYCC, but in wonderful HD awesomeness)

 

Review – Out There (Horror Short)

December 9, 2012 in Chandler Bullock, On The Web, Video/TV

Horror shorts are a wonderful thing. No, I’m not talking about those awesome under-roos with Freddy Krueger’s face on the crotch (although using the front hole to give him a weird “tongue” is massive fun); I’m talking about the often beautiful and terrifying short films that are floating around in our beloved genre. What makes these films so special is that a filmmaker is hard pressed to fit in the logic, emotional depth, and (most importantly) chill inducing terror known so well from feature length films into a tiny package of around twenty minutes or less. The time limit alone can either make or break the entire effectiveness of a horror short, which is why they’re so delightful when they manage their time well and so disappointing when they don’t. Making a horror short is by no means an easy task and by far a very unforgiving one if the effect isn’t delivered properly.

Writer/director Randal Plunkett’s (Lord Dunsany) latest short film, Out There, comes in at only 15 minutes and 22 seconds. The film’s story weaves an intricate web of confusion and discovery surrounding its protagonist, Robert (Conor Marren). Robert wakes up in a lonely forest with a flowing wound on his forehead and no recollection of how he got there. To make matters worse, the village he eventually wanders into seems to be completely deserted and left in shambles…I think you know where this is headed. It’s a premise we all know and love from many full length films; but with the duration of little more than a commercial break, does it manage to deliver?

There’s a lot to like about this horror short. Plunkett has crafted a script that fleshes out just enough to provide heapings of intrigue, dashes of clarity, and a wonderfully horrifying ending. There are many horror tropes present in the film that may come across as somewhat cliché initially, but actually serve the film well. When you have a limited time to inject fear and mystery into your audience it’s best to stick with familiar tropes and get those red flags waving. And wave, they do. The moment Robert enters the dilapidated Irish village with seemingly no signs of activity other than an increasingly loud power generator, tiny warning bells will be going off in the viewer’s head. We’ve seen this before and it didn’t end well…certainly it won’t now either. The film is full of these moments. However, some are more effective than others. For instance, the previously mentioned generator left a nice bitter taste in my mouth. I immediately expected doom to show up around every corner for as long as that sound kept ransacking the scene. It was a really nice touch to open the madness with. Unfortunately, there’s a similar moment that in general is fairly creepy but ultimately left me more bewildered than tense. Somewhere nearing the midpoint of the film, Robert happens upon a small cottage of sorts. The rooms are scrawled with bloody messages and what appears to be some Satanic imagery. Spooky stuff to be sure (at least Robert thinks so), but in the context of the rest of the 15 minute film this bit is left rather unexplained and comes across more as a creepy device than a terrifying accent to the rest of the piece. That moment aside, the rest of the playful visual cues and tropes used throughout the film had me smiling and waiting for the next bit in anticipation.

As I said before, in order to deliver a really good horror story in a short amount of time, you have to jam pack it a bit. Which is exactly what Plunkett did with Out There. This is by no means a complaint, either. Somehow Plunkett drafted a script that manages to not only lead you with Robert’s shambling confusion throughout the small Irish town, but also toss you clues about how he got there and what he was doing. How did he do this? With another beloved trope, the ever useful flashback. It’s through these well timed flashbacks that we get a glimpse into the events prior to Robert waking up in the empty forest. These segments are where we get to know Robert’s troubled girlfriend, Jane, who is played by rising Irish starlet, Emma Eliza Regan. Without spoiling the details of these flashbacks, I will say that I found myself a slight bit confused regarding Jane. It seemed to me that Regan’s performance was on the subdued side and it was unclear if this was strictly due to her performance or if the character of Jane was meant to be that way. Both interpretations are plausible, but neither is clearly the answer (without asking, of course). On the one hand Regan’s performance possessed a sort of haunting quality to it as if the character of Jane was deeply troubled by something she did not wish to speak of. On the other hand, there isn’t much mentioned or shown in the film to explain this personality. There’s no mention of depression, secrets, etc. Perhaps this is due to the time limitation, or perhaps it’s due to something else. In any case, I didn’t find myself dwelling too much on the issue and could still enjoy the flashback segments for the purpose they served. The segments provided a clear outline of the events leading up to Robert waking in the forest, and when you have all the pieces to the puzzle you are left with an appropriately disturbing image.

All in all I rather enjoyed Out There. You can sense the filmmaker’s passion for the genre throughout and the film’s narrative has a rather sympathetic protagonist to keep things going. This is always refreshing in the current sea of unsympathetic leading roles in the horror genre. Having a confused and sympathetic guy leading you through a maze of confusion and terror helps you put yourself in the poor guy’s shoes…which eventually becomes a nightmarish thought. However, due to some of the issues mentioned (unexplained bloody symbols, unexplained depression in Jane) perhaps giving this film the full length treatment would be a good thing. It seems as if Plunkett’s ideas somewhat transcend the time limit allotted. The main plot of the film serves well for such a short, but the tiny details could benefit from some further explanation. That said, Plunkett still managed to fill up a relatively short amount of time with a fairly rich story that didn’t feel rushed or heavy-handed. Likewise, the familiar tropes sprinkled with an Irish twinge made for a surprisingly fresh experience in an otherwise known tale.

I’m a sucker for a good horror short, and I honestly thought that Out There was exactly that: a good horror short. There could still be a bit of refinement here and there concerning particular plot elements and performance delivery, but the film’s story is A-grade. I’d also like to quickly point out the rather pleasant camera work in this film. For a short film this one had some rather impressive camera angles and lighting choices. With the feel of a feature-length indie film, Out There serves its purpose well and is certainly a little film for horror fans out there to really sink their teeth into.

 

 

Review – Sinister

December 9, 2012 in Movie Reviews, Movies

I sit down in the theater. A couple ads for other films roll on the screen. Some good. Some bad. Then, a hypnotic image flashes across the screen: A beautiful, foggy autumn morning. We see four people with bags over their heads and nooses around their necks – a father, mother, and two children. The nooses are draped over one branch and tied to another branch that is being sawed through from above by an unseen figure. The branch eventually snaps and as it falls the family is raised into the air, where they hang and die. It was then that I thought… “Damn… this Hotel Transylvaniamovie is harsh!”. All kidding aside (since there isn’t much kidding in this film), Sinister is certainly one of those films that will either completely suck you in with it’s opening shots, or you will walk out 45 seconds in.

 

After we are treated to the Super 8 snuff film, we are introduced to Ellison Oswalt (Ethan Hawke), and his family. Ellison is a true crime writer, which of course makes him really popular with the local law enforcement. Problem is he hasn’t had a good book in a decade. His wife (Juliet Rylance) fears he is a one-hit wonder and the two bicker from time to time about his declining fame, to say nothing of finances. But he convinces her that his next book will put him back on the map and that the story will be huge. And he’s right… then he is wrong for the rest of the film.

 

She asks if they have just moved a couple houses away from where some horrible crime took place. He says no. He isn’t lying. They are living IN the house where a horrible crime took place. Before you can say poltergiest, Ellison comes across a box with a projector and some assorted super 8 film reels. They are marked innocently enough: Hanging Out, Sleepy Time, BBQ, Pool Party, and Lawn Work. He waits till everyone is asleep and starts what has to be the sickest movie marathon put on film. Turns out the titles are sadistic but comic descriptions of ritual murders. For example, Pool Party features a family being tied to lawn chairs and pulled one by one into the pool where they drown, BBQ shows another family being chained up inside their car and set on fire, etc. It is the scenes where Hawke subjects himself and the audience to these murders that the film really shines.

 

Ellison’s kids start acting weird. His son develops night terrors. His daughter starts painting morbid illustrations on the walls. And his wife begs and pleads him to move the family back home. He refuses to until he can crack the mystery of who the satanic videographer is. Especially when he catches a glimpse of the yellow faced figure in one of the videos. This figure is eventually revealed to be some kind of Babylonian Boogeyman but his origins are not important. The fact is that what makes the character so scary is the lack of info we are given on him… That and he looks like a f*cked up Willie Wonka (The screenwriter’s words. Not mine.)

 

“…the film becomes wildly scary”

From here on in, the film becomes wildly scary. Even the jumps scenes leave you disturbed. The images on the tapes (combined with Christopher Young’s Reznor-ish score) will not leave your mind after the film ends and nothing is certain or safe. Hawke is certainly the key performer in the picture. His facial expressions while watching the footage of the murders mirrors those of the audience so perfectly that we can forgive him when he constantly makes bad choices. The supporting actors fare well also, particularly Jason Ransone as a Barney Fife type deputy and the always stellar Vincent D’Onofrio as a professor who eventually is able to enlighten Ellison on who the mysterious figure in the tapes could be.

 

It has been four days since I saw the film and I still can’t get the eerie murder tapes out of my mind. One terrific jolt involving a lawn mower is worth the price of admission alone. The film also ends with a “Ringu” type twist that will disturb audiences to their core. As far as horror films go, there is usually only one or two really good ones each year. After watching Sinister, I can safely say there won’t be a better ghost story on film for a while. And that includes the God-Awful Paranormal Activity films. Please let this film and Insidious be the beginning of the return to kick-ass ghost stories! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

 

New Images from The House That Cried Blood!

December 9, 2012 in Exclusives, Movie News, Movies

Actor and all-around-nice-guy Damian Maffei (Closed for the Season, Christmas With the Dead) took some time out from his busy shooting schedule to treat our inbox to some great new stills from the haunted house short The House That Cried Blood. If these stills are any indication of what we’ll be seeing when the short hits the web later this month, then we here at HorrorFix are curious as hell to see the end product.

The short, which also stars Maffei and features effects by Emmy Nominated fx artist Jeremy Selenfriend is currently running a Kickstarter campaign and we encourage everyone to drop by and lend a hend getting this, and other genre efforts, the support they need.

Enjoy!
