Wrong Turn 2

Whoa, was this movie extreme or what? This is the more action-oriented sequel to the 2003 movie Wrong Turn. It is everything opposite of what made the original great but somehow I still enjoyed it.
Here's the story: So you have your typical standard horror movie characters: The black leader guy, The sullen Goth girl, the diva wannabe, the jokester, the butch girl, the slut, etc. who seemed to fit right at home in a reality show which they are filming in the outskirts of West Virginia. It isn't long until a family of cannibalistic mutants come in their way, looking for the next meal.
The acting is very excellent, especially for a direct-to-dvd movie.  But all my kudos goes to Erica Leerhsen for playing a kickass heroine. She brought on a emotional driven performance, took the movie and run with it. Texas Battle was also excellent in his role of the jock with the heart of gold. Not to mention he is very pleasing the eye. Kimberly Caldwell was actually good in her little cameo. But all bets go to Henry Rollins who was very convincing as an army sergeant and would definitely make a great action star one day. Also he seems to be looking sexier with age. Ken Kirzinger was good in Freddy Vs. Jason and he's certainly good in this movie playing one mean mutant dad. The violence in this movie is spot on. Much of the gore you didn't see in the original is in-your-face extreme in this sequel. Practically what was so subtle in the 2003 movie is hyped up to 11. To me that could be a hit or miss thing. However, it's always fun to watch in a slasher film.
My last word: It wouldn't hold a candle to the original but it's the more entertaining none-the-less. A definite good watch for Halloween.

Hatchet 2

I just couldn't quite put my finger on this one. It does have high action, an informative(though bizzare) backstory, and an awesome performance from Danielle Harris, who is by far the best thing in this movie. But unfortuntely, it doesn't match up what was so great abou the original.
Here's the story: After the events of the first movie, Marybeth has survived Victor Crowley's attack. Grief-stricken, she goes to Reverned Zombie, a phony voodo practioner, who decides to help her find the dead bodies of her father and brother. Along the way, Zombie recriuts a group of hunters to track down Victor Crowely. Needless to say, the group is no match for the homicidal Crowely filling the Louisana swamps full of blood and guts on his trail....
The acting was alright for the most part. Danielle Harris, Kane Hodder, and Tony Todd were the only actors that had potential but the rest of the cast fell flat. I don't know if it was the script that had the characters badly written or the actors not doing a good job. I would rather go with both. But again, my full praise go to Danielle Harris. She really knew how to convey the emotional grief her character felt and pretty much develop her role without the script letting her. And so my kudos goes to her. The suspense fell flat for me and the deaths were pretty much predictiable because quite frankly, I didn't care who died. And just to add something to the mix, when you cast directors as actors, it's usually a love it or hate it thing. Wes Craven tried it in New Nightmare and he was...Alright. It wasn't his best acting debut but at least he was good. Now the directors in this movie trying the acting bug aren't quite AS good. John Carl Buelcher(Friday The 13th part 7) was okay in little cameo by death bit, however, Tom Holland(Child's Play) should've stuck with a cameo.
So It's not as thrilling nor Funny as the original but at least it's still watchable.
Last Word: Not particually the best sequel, though, quite entertaining.

Yet Another Long Delay

It's been such a long time since i've been here and now i'm back with two new reviews at hand. All this time i've been spending writing and going over my novels. You see writing novels isn't as easy as you think, you really have to make time for it. Between having a job, paying the bills, and also making next year's plans, there hasn't been enough time for this blog. So now i'm back with fresh reviews, though I may promise you, there will be another long delay, cause you know, i'm novelist, but don't worry, I will always come back and serve you delicious treats....l

Movie Review: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation

This movie known for having the reputation of being one of the worst movies ever...but somehow, I found this actually watchable. Trust me, I've seen worst crap than this. And some people need to know that certain horror films aren't meant to be taken seriously. What I liked most about this movie is that it reminds of one of those over-the-top B-movies from the 90's I used to watch as a kid. Although it is a bad movie, it was quite an interesting watch.
Here's the story: Just a typical slasher movie plot. Two couples on prom night suddenly find themselves stranded after a terrible car accident. Though not for long, they soon become prey to leatherface and his canalblistic clan.
Renee Zellweger was at first a bit shaky, almost blending in with the other bad actors but halfway through the movie she surprised me with this powerhouse performance, playing a young woman that is literally trying to fight to survive. Matthew Mcconaughey was very chilling and would i like to call it 'creepy-sexy'. He actually made you believe he was a psycho killer, which makes him a good actor til this day. Toni Perensky is charming as the ditzy Darla. Her performance was so funny and endearing, you almost forget that she's in cahoots with a bunch of psychos. The rest of the cast aren't that great. They're just plain bad compared to Renee, Matthew, and Toni. But one thing I would like to point is the torture they put through on poor Heather. She might be an annoying ditz, but she didn't deserve the treatment that she endured.
Although there is no suspense to be found in this film, the one scene where Renee was walking through the deep dark forest was pretty intense. You would never know when Leatherface would pop out with his chainsaw.
Like I said the story is simple and clich├ęd. If you watched any other teen horror film, you would know the story by now.
Ok I will agree with most people that this movie is shit, but we have to understand that some horror films aren't meant to be taken seriously and this is one of the them.
My last word: bizarre, Outrageous, and Darkly Funny. This is the ultimate popcorn flick....good or bad.
