The Saw series has always intrigued me with its mind-twisting endings and its undertakings on moral irony. Few horror films in the history of cinema have given us an ‘analysis’ on human nature and our instincts of survival. These films aren’t your average gore fest movies where high school kids party, get drunk and are chased down by some psychopathic killer or super natural entity…these films study the human mind and our appreciation for… Continue

Since it is the Halloween season (hooray), I figured this would be the best time for me to do this, though it doesn't really lose much relevance during the course of the year; there's always some kind of horror/suspense film people are going to see.
Okay, granted that I'm a really, REALLY paranoid, skittish person as it is, but the reason that I am such a person can be traced back to these films... and a video game. Hell, the Thriller… Continue

Based On A True Story...Inspired By True Events...
These words have constantly been used by the film industry to attract audiences around the world. Let's face it, we're in a society that loves to watch horrible things happen to people...and I mean that from a film point of view. When you see a film that is 'inspired by true events', an urge builds up inside you to look it all up on Wikipedia.
"That can't possibly have happened to someone!"
"I wonder… Continue

With Halloween coming up, we need a good scare right? So, if ya need something scary to watch, watch some of my personal choices.
One of the first films to start this whole chain of annoying PG-13 rated horror films. But, out of the pile, this is one of the few that is on top. Both an scary-ass horror film, a Sci-Fi film and a story about a man who has lost his faith. I'm sure you have seen this before and you… Continue

Once again, my intrepid journalistic skills (fishing through White House garbage bins) bring you the exclusive scoop:
On a side note, I recently saw W.

When deciding what to watch this week, I automatically looked for any sort of horror release, being that Halloween mode is in high gear and people are seeking things to rent. Well, kids, I have just the new movie for you: Trailer Park of Terror
Based on the comic series of the same title, Trailer Park of Terror
tells the… Continue

Jaws is one of my favourite films of all time. It is awesome. Unfortunately sequels were made. Terrible, terrible sequels. Ok, 2 wasn’t so bad but 3 and 4 are awful. Jaws 4, aka Jaws: The Revenge, is easily one of the worst films of all time.
Martin Brody is dead. Ellen Brody visits her son, Michael, is working as a marine biologist… I think. It seems like an odd choice of employment for someone whose family has such a constant problem with sharks. His younger brother Sean is a cop… Continue

This was too hard to resist with Zack and Miri Make a Porno
coming out next week, or should I say “Zack and Miri” since a lot of stations won’t use the entire title. If they think Zack and Miri Make a Porno
is a dirty title, then they’ll definitely flip at some of the ones I found. Honestly, these are hilarious, which is why I’m sharing them with you. Now, whether these are real or not, I’m not entirely sure (although I have the… Continue

Each year around this time, there is a small handful of channels that play nothing but horror movies the week or so surrounding Halloween. Sci-Fi
has one called The 31 Days of Halloween, AMC
had Monsterfest and even the kiddies get their own on ABC Family
, The 13 Days of Halloween.
My favorite by far is Monsterfest. Ten… Continue

I was surfing
the net and happened to come across this little article
According to a posting on /Film, fans are already in an uproar over the ending to Zack Snyder's Watchmen movie, which purportedly deviates from the original. Said deviation is rumored to replace Veidt's releasing of his "alien" squid on New York City with a new high point of action occuring when he builds a machine that Ozymandias uses to set off… Continue

W, or as I like to call it Dubya, tells the worrisome tale of current president George W. Bush. And, that's really what's wrong with W. I don't need to see a movie chronicling events that I'm still in the process of living. In order to keep W. current, the filmmakers had to shoot the entire film in under 50 days. Although, they do what's best with the time given, the lack of structure and cinematography found in the final product really shows.… Continue

With Sex Drive
coming out today, I can’t help but think of how hilarious it could be. With Seth Green
playing an Amish guy in it, you can’t really go TOO wrong, can you? I don’t think so. I mean, stop and really think about how insanely absurd that character is. Not only is it amusing for what it is on the surface, but the chances of an… Continue

The Hollywood Reporter says that the Viggo Mortensen dark thriller , which The Weinstein Company had originally set for a Nov. 14 limited and Nov. 26 wide release, has now quietly been shifted until at least December -- and might be moved out of 2008 altogether.
The executives are scheduled to meet with "Road's" producers Thursday to discuss whether the movie will be released this year.

As I mentioned yesterday, each year in the fall, Japan Society of New York begins to feature its Monthly Classics. This year they'll be screening films from the Tora-san collection, entitled "Best of Tora-san." That's one movie on one Friday night of each month from October '08 - May '09.
