Movie Review: Hostel Part 2

I really have nothing against this movie, although it's themes are somewhat misogynistic and it does feel like a rehash of the first movie but with a little more story to it this time. This was right around the time where torture porn was losing it's way and people really didn't give a shit anymore. With all the countless Saw films and the poor reception of  the movie Captivity, the genre was already dead in it's tracks. So Eli Roth gave one more try with this sequel.
Now on with the story: It's about three girls who decide to take a break from art school studies in Paruge. They meet up with a beautiful model who persuade them to go to a hostel in svehlova for some R+R, little do they know, they are set up to be torture dolls for two business men who won a bet on them. Can they escape before it's too late?
The story is much more better than the original. Sue me for saying that but it is. We get deep into the story, learning about the evil corparation and their motives in which the first film got more into the mystery of it.
The acting has more stronger performances and more sympatheic characters. Lauren German as Beth....Two words: BADASS! I was completely surprised by her performance. She is the sole reason this movie was decent. For now, she is one of my top final girls. Heather Marazzo as Lorna, just broke my heart when she died horribly. It's just so heart-wrenching to see a sweet girl like Lorna died the way she did. Just like Eli Roth did with adorable Josh, he did the same to poor Lorna. Plus, I don't see why Heather Marazzo gets typecasted as the geek. She's a beautiful girl and should get more spicer roles. Bijou Phillips as Whitney on the other hand, is a firecracker. Yeah, Whitney can be a little bitchy and little flightly, but that makes her all the more loveable. I cringed too when she got tortured. Not really tortured but she did got half of her brain cut off. Which is pretty much the most grossiest, goreist, bloodiest thing i seen from the film. How she died was even more frightening, just by not showing how she died, made it more scarier. What's even more scarier was Roger Bart. Yeah, Richard Burgi always was cast in these asshole roles but that's what he's good at. the twist is, his character is just an asshole, not a killer. Let's get down to the real kick here. Roger Bart as Stuart was a truly believeable performance. We really get deep into his pysche and see why the way he is. Of course, he starts out as a nice guy but ultimately we see his true colors at the end. Which is pretty damn scary.
The film is much more bloodier and goreier than the first, mixed in with the intense suspenseful scenes, it kind of keeps your heart pumping. What's really different about this is that the main characters are decent this time and much more....level-headed than the male leads in the first hostel. I just can't help but care and sympathize more with the female leads because you know what....GIRLS FUCKING RULE! you can ask Beth for that. She got more balls than puny old Paxton ever had!
Although the torture porn genre died along with this movie, it's pretty decent if you look at a different way but just like I said with the first one it could settle down for just an ok.
My Last word: Watch this movie for Beth and Beth only. The girl totally knows how to work a garden shear.

Movie Review: Hostel

To be honest, This wasn't one of my favorite films. I'm not really a big fan of torture porn as it takes off the anticipation of the suspense of what's to come. The pacing all wrong, the story dosen't get anywhere and the characters you start to grow to wear off on you, although it's a bit cringe-worthy to experience their pain. Hostel is quite different. The story is interesting and keeps the movie going yet the pacing is still quite slow as we focus on the "needed" character development. And the part about where you care about the characters you grow to love? Well, sadly the case is not here. I do of course care for one of them only for that person to die burtally the first go around. Obviously the biggest douchebag is the main character who supposed to fill the hero role. I'll get to all that later.
Here's the story:  A trio of friends decided to go to a hostel for some R+R, unbeknowst to them they are set up by sadistic company who pays people to torture them.
That was kind of a short but simple story right? It dosen't really get into the action until second half of the movie although it adds some creppy moments up to that point. Most of the atmosphere and shots of the film is pretty engaging, if only the story would've strecthed out more and had...let's say more sympatheic characters than it should have. But I think that was the point. For people to actually enjoy these sleazy characters to be tortured or killed in some horrific way. It's the standard horror movie trifecta: The Jerk Gets It. But here's where they break the rules a bit, the biggest jerk gets to live. Again, how interesting.
The acting is pretty good. Jay Hernandez was superb. Yeah, his character is kind of douchey but you really get to emphatize his fear of what's happening to him and around him, which makes his character a little sympatheic by his intense performance. Speaking of sympatheic, my heart went out to Derek Richardson. His death was by far the most scariest yet saddest. Josh was actually the more nicer of the two guys and he wasn't even much of a horndog etheir because he was trying to get over a breakup. But sadly, we the audience get to see how brutally he dies in which it wasn't kind of fair. But hey it's what the filmmakers make right?
The supense scenes were downright scary and tense, which will have you at the edge of your seat a little bit. I'm not saying the movie is scary, it's not. It just does a good job at rising up the boiling point. To add something else, if you're expecting a gore-fest you'll be a dissappointed. There is little gore in the movie. Yeah, there are gross stuff but don't expect any more.
Like I said, I'm not a big fan of torture porn. Now-a-days it has wear off over it's head with the pointless Saw franchise and other copy-cats. But this film focuses on the story if you look beyond the characters and how it reaches to it's point of no return. It isn't really my kind of film. Maybe guy's movie since it has it's fair share of nudity and blood(a little if you count that.) Other than that, it's now forgettable as it's not much of a buzz anymore.
My last word: It has a good story, but not something to remember by.

Ivy's Top Ten Badass Vampires

Now to present to you Ivy's Top Ten Badass Vampires. This list contains one of the most powerful, most deadly, and certainly the most stylish vampires in the biz. Here is the honorary list:

1. Akusha-Queen of The Damned
This egyptian goddess is known to be the ruthless leader of the vampire clan. No one dares to cross her path, not even the ones who are deemed as sinster. She tops this list because she knows the true game of vampirism since the dawn of time. So for all you vampys out there, this is truly the queen of them all...


2. Selene- Underworld
This Vamp not only has a thrist for blood but a thirst for guns too. Cross between two worlds: One from her notable clan and Two from the man she loves, She fights to have united equal by kicking some major ass. If people think vampires don't have soul, then how come this blood-seeking vixen is fighting for love?


3. Rayne- Cunning, Sultry and downright Deadly. Yes, deadly is her middle name. This firey redhead may have an undying thrist for blood but that dosen't stop her from becoming a defiant heroine. When it comes down to it, you don't wanna mess with this femme fatale. She got the moves AND fangs to prove it.

4. Sophie-Anne-True Blood
This fun-loving daughter of the night is possibly the most glamourous and high class vampire. What ultimately turns her sexual appatite is when two guys get it on. Honestly Miss Queen Sophie-Anne I don't blame you. Sexy, seductive and down for a good party, This vampy southern bell knows how to have a good time....Also on the list

Pam-True Blood
Yet another fiesty southern belle, although she dosen't care too much for partying as she is into the
vengeful-violent side of things. She maybe downright serious at times but she can fill in a few jokes or two. Because she's cool like that. But don't piss Pam off, this Bisexual bloodsucker can turn from lipstick to butch in a second if you can keep your head on straight.

5.Lilith-30 days of night: Dark Days
Even though 30 days of night: dark days was a somewhat mediocre movie with questionable production values, the best thing about it was this cold-blooded demoness of the night. Leader of her vampire clan she knows how to come at her prey at the right moment. be careful not to walk the streets of L.A at night, you might be her next meal ticket.


6. The Brides Of Dracula-Van Helsing
Blonde, Brunette, Redhead. A notable female trio with their brand of hair colors. But this trio is a lot more sinster per say with their noticable thirst for certain blood types....and their husband Dracula. They seem to copy the same M.O. and seductive manner as their husband's. The dutiful wives that they're are they hunt for their prey. their specialty are mostly men. So guys if you fall for these ladies' sensual looks, get a load of their true form.....

Vicisous!


7. Eli-Let The Right One In
She maybe an innocent little girl with wide gentle eyes but if you mess with her friend Oskar, you mess with her, which will end in bloody results. She's fast, she's frightening, and she'll tear you from limb to limb in a second. If you think she's a defensless little girl, you gotta another thing coming.


8. Moka Akashiya-Rosario+Vampire
She may be the vamp of the night(or day, it depends) But she is actually the most sweetest, kind-hearted vampires there is. Some Vampires are moody, melaclohinc, or just have no soul. Not this girl though, who is just your normal, cheerful, neighborhood-friendly vampire. You can tell from her rose-colored hair that she is as sweet as a rose could come.

9. Mina Tepes-Dance In The Vampire Bund

Mina acts like most natural vampires: Cocky, Agressive, and Naughty. But all of that is a facade. In Actuality, She's vunerable and lonely. She is the current ruler of the vampire world, which makes her life as ruler very depressing until she meets Akira, who helps her love again as a human being. It just shows that deep down in that cold vampire heart it's still beating inside. Mina is truly one of the sympatheic vampires. Speaking of sympatheic.....


10. Rosalie Hale- The Twilight Saga

At first she appears as a stoic yet enchanting ice queen but deep down she has had a dark and troubled past that she had overcome with such defiance and resilance, you can't help but root for her. She hides her vunerability by protesting a strong personality. High above that, she is caring, strong-willed, and the most captavating on the list. Cheers to you, Rosalie.

There you have it, The Top Ten Most Vampist Women On The Block. I hope you enjoyed the list as much as I do. You can't get more badass as a vampire can.

Movie Review: Urban Legend

This was actually an interesting take on the "scream craze" that generated during the late 90's. After the success of I Know What You Did Last Summer, There have been many tired copycats along the way, with the exception of this one, though. Urban Legend is not just your regular by-the-book slasher. You may think yeah it's just another teen horror film but with a intelligent idea of having the murders based on Urban Legends. I mean that is the name of the title right?
So Here's the story: Natalie Simon is shaken by her former high school friend Michelle's sudden death, who was found decapitated inside of her SUV, according to news reports. Most of her college friend's lastest topics are about frequent urban legends in which they study in their history major. All the while Paul Gardner, the school's journalist is investigating the Stanely Hall massacre that happened 25 years ago. Not long before the death of Michelle, a series of mysterious murders begin to haunt Natalie all around her. But there not just any killings, These murders happen to be based on urban legends. So Natalie and Paul tries to figure out who's behind the murders before being written down on his(or hers) death list.
The acting is superb. Alicia Witt is a very smart and capable actress, which is a divine character trait put into her character. She is clearly the strongest actress in the movie. Jared Leto as Paul was good as always. Not only is he a great actor, he has the most dreamest blue eyes, you couldn't help but root for him at the end. What really surprised me is Rebecca Grayhart. She has got to be one of the most charamastic pyschotic killers since Freddy Kruger(By the way, Robert Englund does have a cameo in the film). Not only that, but she has the most intense crazy eyes and such raw emotion that her performance is almost believeable. You could say it's a little over-the-top crazy but at least it's entertaining to watch. As for the rest of the cast, I really didn't care for Tara Reid. But she does seem comfortable being cast as the disposable blond bimbo.  Micheal Rosenbaum did okay playing the party animal jerk, it's just that his character was kind of wasted just like Tara Reid's.
The suspense scenes is pretty cringe-worthy, especially placed with the atmosphere of the movie with the creppy vibe in tow.
I know I should gave a more lengthy description of the plot but I'm kind of discreet about writing them just becuase it's has a lot of story in it. That gives bonus points for making it into a inventive slasher. The sole reason of me watching slasher films(or certain slasher films) is that it gots to have a story to follow with. Although the movie is sort of tame on the killings, it has a great story to keep the action going and the who-done-it mystery in focus.
My last word: It's an interesting take on the slasher genre with great performances from the leads. I'm not saying it's a classic but it's an entertaining film otherwise.

Movie Reviews: I Know What You Did Last Summer

There were many scream copy-cats during that time but this is profoundly the most memorable. for any of you who don't know this, it was based on a Lois Ducan novel of the same. The only difference is the violence is a bit tame compared to the movie. That's what makes this so interesting; a slasher movie that's based on a novel which will have a great deal of character development. Most slasher films have a hard time putting that into context. It may seem like the characters are cardboard cut-outs but it's deeper than that as they are haunted by the events of the story.
It starts out like this: Four friends, the smart girl, the beauty queen, the nice guy, and the jerk jock go for a little R+R in the beaches of North Carolina late one summer with a little alcohol in their system. They stupidly decide to drive very fast by the coast near by when suddenly they run over a prestedian, who turns out to be an innocent(or so it seems) fisherman who got off late from work. Out of desprate panic, the group get rid of the body by dumping it into a pier sinking it into it's watery grave. They vow never to speak of this again.
It's next summer after college, the smart girl, Julie James, just having got back from her studies, she recieves letter that reads "I know what you did last summer." In a state of horror, Julie runs into her former friends of last summer, Helen: the beauty queen, Barry: Helen's jerk jock ex-boyfriend, and Ray: The nice guy and Julie's lost love. Together, they out who is stalking them before getting hooked by the mysterious fisherman who may or may not be the guy they ran over on that fateful night.
The acting is pretty strong, especially for Jennifer Love Hewitt. This was actually the role that made her a star. Along with her sweet girl-next-door charm and her inner strength she brings into her character. Not to mention Sarah Michelle Gellar AKA Buffy The Vampire Slayer. She really put depth into her character to make her sympatheic because most dumb blondes in horror movies are vapid and shallow with little to no common sense. But Mrs. Gellar deconstructs this in such a way that it's almost sad to see her character get hooked towards the middle of the movie. Let me just say this, what really bother is how everybody in the movie says how horrible the actress look, however they still look like their beautiful glamorous selves. Now for the hot male cast. Woah boy. I gotta remember to focus on their talents before admiring their sizziling hot bodies, especially Ryan Phillipee's. We'll get back to that later. Freddie Prinze Jr. was really good. Of course, he plays the heroic male lead but with a sense of vunerability that hasn't been seen before in a male lead in a horror movie. Not mention to he has the most cuteset brown eyes in which it actually reminded me of a boy I had a hopeless crush on. No comment. Now as for the sexy, hot Ryan Phillipee, he's a real aggressive jerk in this movie. But even I was sad when got hooked. He was really convincing, not because of that hot body of his. It's because he was really good at his performance.
The suspense scenes are really engaging and cringe-worthy. May I remind you this is based on a novel. And probably some scenes in the book, match so well in the movie. This brings us down to the awesome chase scene with the fisherman and Sarah Michelle Gellar. This was hands down the most suspenseful part of the movie. When I first saw this(I was 7 by the way) I was at the edge of my seat.
The story really help flesh out the characters and mircalously make them sympatheic than most slasher movie sterotypes. You may think this your by-the-number slasher but once you look beyond that and go deep into the story. Or maybe even read the book, your call. You might have an istant 90's classic on your hands.
My last word: Highly suspenseful, highly entertaining slasher flick.

Mystical Tides Part 3

Scene: Library
(Maddie is sitting in the library, reading Shakespere's Romeo and Juliet)
(In the dark shadows, a shadowy figure appears behind a bookcase, coming close to Maddison)
(Maddison can feel something crepping behind her. She turns around with a shocked look on her face)

Maddison: In the night? So you're completely normal in the daytime?

Alex: guys, I have to go for second.

Alex: How can that be? We barely know how to use our powers
Maddie: There might be some unknown history about greek goddesses of the roman century. We might be connected to them somehow.
Alex: How is that possible?
Maddie: What we just experienced before all this........Things don't happen like that out of the ordinary. The way we just contribute our energy is a gift.
Kristen: I knew there was something.......odd about me. But not until just now. When I was about 10 or 11, I always thought someone was watching me....Like someone was protecting me from anything that's bad. Then one night I saw my mom in the mirror, all dressed in white. I just stared at her.....She beckoned(Kristen beckons and presses her hand on her heart) and once I came close to the mirror...She....She faded away.

(Kirsten and Alex catches her attention)
(Maddie lifts her head up, wiping away her tears)
Maddie: It was a cold november night....I was waiting for Matthew, the boy I had a crush on. This was when I was at my old school. I really didn't make any friends there.....but I thought that night was really special. Just walking with Matthew was sweet....(seriousiness in her voice) But then something happened.

(The two teens tie up Maddie, hanging her hands up to a tree. They remove the bag over her head, laughing evily at her)
Teen girl(whispers in Maddie's ear): Maybe we should just leave you here

Cut To:
Present Day-Libarary

Kristen: I had a near death experience once. When my cuts got too deep(Kristen reveals two small visible scars on her wrist under her wrist band) all I could see was that blurry vision. Just one flash of light, everything was clear now. And my wounds heal quicker.
Alex: It's like all this was happening the whole time

80's horror film reviews: Friday the 13th: Jason Takes Manhattan

Oh Boy. Well to be truthful, this wasn't as bad as I expected. Sure, the concept was all wrong. Half of the movie takes place on a boat for christsakes. It really dosen't live up the hype of Jason invading Manhattan until the middle and end of the movie.
So the real juice of the story begins with our final girl, Rennie who is going on a boat trip with her fellow classmates and her asshole uncle, only that Rennie has a secret phobia she's hiding. It's soon revealed she has a phobia of water and sees visions of you-know-who. So to get the story going, our last main survivors is Rennie, Rennie's love interest Sean, tough guy julian, kind-hearted teacher Ms. Van Deusen, and Rennie's asshole uncle, arriving in New York on a rowboat. So we soon find out that Rennie's uncle was the cause of her phobia when it is shown that he thrown her in the water when she was child, having nightmares about Jason ever since. But don't worry Jason taught him lesson. So Rennie and Sean are the only survivors in New York trying to outrun Jason in the city streets....I'll stop right there. The ending is too weird for me to write about.
The characters along with the acting was only ok. I thought Jessen Dagget was good because in my opinion, Rennie was such a complex character, having a connection to Jason. Which gives us a reason to make her our final girl. The male lead, Scott Reeves was good too. Here is yet another heroic boyfriend that takes things seriously like they should in these movies, especially if there's a killer on boat.
Speaking of boat, why the fuck is this movie set up on a boat? Who's stupid idea was this? I mean, the title says Jason takes MANHATTAN, not Friday The 13th: Boat Fright(stupid title I know). Why couldn't they just take a plane and then Jason's boat might appear on the New York peir or something. I mean that's just my suggestion. It wasn't necessary for the movie to spend half an hour on boat, knowing what's the title about. How stupid these execs can be.
Overall, it was at least watchable. But let me tell you something, if you think this is bad just wait until you watch Jason goes to hell. Now I would call that an abomination. So don't be sour about this one. At least it takes things in another direction.
My last word is: Just go with it. It won't hurt to watch it.

80's horror movie reviews: Cutting Class

Do you see that gorgeous poster of Brad Pitt? And do you know he was in forgettable slasher movie called Cutting Class? Well here it is and I will give my review of this film in my humble opinion.
So the story is about Brain Woods, a troubled teen who just got released from mental hospital. When he first arrives at school, he meets and istantly has a crush on beautiful, popular Paula Carson but he dosen't realize that she already has a boyfriend in Dwight Ingalls. So here is the start of a love triangle, which also starts along with the killings. Dwight and Brain are the two main suspects in this and Paula is forced to believe which guy she'll trust. So there you have it, nothing really much on the plot actually. The three main characters aren't really that interesting. This movie does have a lot going for them, but ultimately wavers. As for the rest of the characters they are not at all likeable or important even. The dialouge at times can be a little mushy and have some scenes that are irrevelent to the film. As for the acting, Brad Pitt was ok as the heroic but superficial jock. This was he's first movie after all, so you at least got to give some props along with his smoldering good looks. Jill Schoelen was elioquent as always being the underrated actress that she is. She might be in the ranks with Jamie Lee Curtis as the top ten scream queens. Donovan Leitch was a little shaky. He was ok playing the sweet, sensitive type but when it came to playing a psycho killer, it just fell down from there. I wasn't convinced. But at least you can look at those steely blue eyes of his, that would plus. The story is like any teen drama set-up only spiced a little slasher on the side, which makes it ok to have a little character development along with the story to speed up the story. But that still dosen't make a good slasher movie. It's a very muddled when it comes down to it. Sometimes this tries to be a horror-comedy which is kind of ridiculous. The comedy is really not needed at times.
First I watched this on the internet, then I watched it a couple of times on the movie channels but that dosen't mean that this is my favorite movie. Because seriously there was nothing else to watch.
So my last word is: you can watch it if you want to, just don't expect anything redeemable.

80's horror film reviews: Friday the 13th: The New Blood

This is, hands down, the best friday the 13th movie ever! You may think it's a little cheesy but you can look past that. I'm mean hey it was the 80's. And this was a slasher movie of the 80's.
So the story begins with Tina, a sullen teenager who goes to a camp retreat(you know what) with her mother while still having conflicting memories about her deceased father. On that faithful night when Tina was a little girl, she witnessed her parents fighting resulting her father of hitting her mother. Upset by the outburst, Tina runs out to the boat while her father pleads for forgiveness. Then something strange happens. As young Tina gets angrier, the poles underneath the pier her father is standing at, begins to move. When the poles finally break, Tina's father drown deep into the water. Now all grown up with that guilt still clinging to her, it's not too early to reveal that Tina have telekinetic powers. Tina and her mother on their way to meet the slimy Dr. Cruise, who only wants Tina to showcase her telekinetic powers for his own benefit. Meanwhile, a couple of dumb teens are there: You have the hunky, sensitive Nick, who turns out to be our hero, Melissa, the rich bitch, The cute nerd Eddie, there's also the smart but funny Maddie, and what ever teen slasher stereotypical characters that you see. So one night while sitting on the pier of that fatal memory, Tina uses her powers to resurrected her father. But something dosen't seem right. Tina brings back something else....something else bad......You know who it is folks. And off Jason goes to kill a whole batch of teens, including that asshole Dr. Cruise.
What makes it so great is the story with a great pace to go with it. The action of it all just keeps the movie going. The character of Tina is quite captivating, I mean having a final girl with telekinesis with emotinal baggage on the side is pretty daring. The actress Lars Park Lincoln did a strong performance. She captures the vunerability and intensity of the Tina character. Kevin Blair was also pretty great in his role. He's really good at playing the knight in shining armor and possibly one of the only sympatheic male leads in these movies. Not to mention how very enticing he is. There is nothing sexier than man going head to head with Jason Vorhees.
The scenes with Jason and my favorite final girl is classic. Tina even more badass than the final in the fourth movie because of course she has kick-ass pyschic powers that could take down a whole building. The final battle was indeed well done.
My last word is: A slasher classic with a good story and competent leading stars.
