Unfriended.

I happened to re watch this again. A ghost tale for this social media obsessed generation. A girl who is cyberbullied commits suicide. Her ghost comes back to wreak revenge upon those who wronged her. The movie all takes place on a computer screen, while six friends are on Skype. Facebook, YouTube, Spotify, and Google are all prominently featured as well. This gimmick actually really works well here.

It kept my interest. Brilliant? Maybe not, but it was quite effective. There are a couple of great jump scares. Not really horribly gory, but there are a couple of gruesome scenes. Moments of good tension. Stars Shelley Henning (Ouija), Jacob Wysocki (you saw him in Pitch Perfect) and Courtney Halverson (True Detective) among the six person cast. I hope there isn't a sequel, because this worked well enough as a one off.

Buy Unfriended here.

It's that time again! October!! That means Halloween Month Movie A Night. Throughout the month of October, I screen one horror / suspense / thriller a night up until Halloween, when we watch Halloween.

I started with the latest in the Purge series.

Oct 1
The Purge: Election Year



I liked the first film, thought the second one even better. This one was just as good as the second. I think the next one in the series is going to be a prequel, and show us how this all started, how the Purge began. If you've seen these films, you already know the premise. One night a year, for twelve hours, by government decree, all crime is legal. Including murder. It's called The Purge, or Purge Night. In this latest chapter, we follow a Senator who is running for President. She wants to unseat the current one, who's with the group who started and believe in The Purge, and repeal it. There is plenty of violence and a little bloodshed shown.

Buy The Purge: Election Year here.

Here it is, the last installment of my Halloween Month Movie A Night for another year.

October 27:

The Exorcist (1973)

This film still has moments that are completely frightening to me.



More this way! )

And today is Halloween! Tonight's movie will of course, by tradition, be "Halloween". I hope you enjoyed following along and I'll see you next year! Happy Halloween!

Yay! Catch up time! :D

October 21:

Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)

Lush, sexy, with great performances.



More this way. )
hippie_chick: (Zombie!Audrey)
October 14:

Zombieland (2009)

Because zombies. And Jesse Eisenberg. And Woody Harrelson. And the Bill Murray scenes.



More movie goodness this way! )

That's it for now! We're getting closer to Halloween, folks!
hippie_chick: (Halloween / black cat)
Eep! Time to play a little catch up.

October 9:

The Shining (1980)

I just think this is completely well done. I know Stephen King has issues with it, and I understand what those are, but I treat this as a completely separate entity from the book.





The rest this way )

There you have it, all caught up! :)

October 7:

Carrie (1976)



The new version starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore is released on October 18. But I love the original. Sissy Spacek's performance was perfect. Both she and Piper Laurie were nominated for Academy Awards for their roles. It was a tough year that year in both Actress and Supporting Actress categories.



October 8:

Pontypool (2008)



I love me a good zombie movie. This one is excellent.



Both of these are available on Netflix Instant.

October 4:

The Blair Witch Project (1999)



I thought the marketing of this movie was brilliant. I remember the original website!


October 5:

An American Werewolf In London (1981)



hippie_chick: (Halloween / glowing pumpkins)
Every October I try and watch one horror / suspense / thriller movie a night, culminating in a screening of Halloween on Halloween night. And in grand style, I've started.

October 1:

The Mummy (1932)



The original, starring Boris Karloff. Always good to incorporate the classic Universal Monsters in during the month.
My favorite:

Joseph: [translating inscription on box] "Death... eternal punishment... for... anyone... who... opens... this... casket. In the name... of Amon-Ra... the king of gods." Good heavens, what a terrible curse!
Ralph: [eagerly] Well, let's see what's inside!

Ralph: [after he reads the scroll from inside the box and the mummy comes to life] He went for a little walk! You should have seen his face!

October 2:

Night of the Living Dead (1968)





They're coming to get you, Barbara! This is in the public domain, and available on You Tube as well!

I'm intrigued, and feel like Behind The Candelabra will either be great or majorly suck. But it's Soderbergh directing so I have high expectations.

That said, my mom got the mail today and has already commandeered my copy of Entertainment Weekly to read the cover story.

Anyway, *sigh* I have to let her read this first or I'll get no peace. Later.

Why did I put the Les Mis screener on? I can't handle this right now. *grabs tissue*

"Tell Cosette I love her and I'll see her when I wake..."


*SNURF* *SOB*

Anyway, this is my afternoon.

Robert Zemeckis Cancels Planned Yellow Submarine Remake

It had been cast, too. Peter Serafinowicz was cast to voice Paul McCartney, Dean Lennox Kelly as John Lennon, Cary Elwes as George Harrison and Adam Campbell as Ringo Starr. The Fab Four were slated to provide the motion-capture / performance of The Beatles. I'm kind of glad it's not going forward. I don't know, I just feel like it would have been horrible. The original always and forever. It was beautifully animated and a complete work of art.

Speaking of Cary Elwes though, I re watched "The Crush" the other night. Good movie. But I have to laugh every time he breaks his accent and you hear the British coming through. Particularly in scenes where he's angry or agitated. I don't know. Anyway.



Jeremy Hilary Boob, PHUD (PH.D) thanks you for your time.
hippie_chick: (Christina Ricci / bitch please.)

Cap'n Jack says GTFO!


Not that there needs to be a POTC 4, no, not at all.

But if there IS? Megan Fox GTFO of my franchise and away from Johnny plz.

UGH UGH UGH.

Read the bad news here... if it's true.
