My Life In Horror 1988 – Beetlejuice

jojj_beetlejuice_movie_poster

Once again the good people of Twitter voted to pick the films from 1988 that I should watch and review. The winners were Beetlejuice and Pumpkinhead both pretty different but both reasonably good if I remember rightly about Pumpkinhead anyway. I’ll try not to be bias when doing this review/look back but I should inform you that I am wearing a Beetlejuice t-shirt as I write this up.

Shaun of the Dead (2004) Review

Along with Deathgasm and What We Do in the Shadows the first film we watched at a movie night was Shaun of the Dead, it’s a safe choice that non horror fans can watch and enjoy due to the comedy involved. If you liked Spaced or Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in general then that just tops it all off. It’s the first of the Cornetto trilogy and in my opinion probably the best one but just how good is it?

What We Do In The Shadows (2014) Review

humpreys-what-we-do-in-the-shadows

During a recent movie night we all agreed that the films would be Shaun of the Dead and Deathgasm as everyone bar me and the missus had not seen Deathgasm. After watching it someone recommended What we do in the Shadows, it looked decent on the trailer so what better than a bit of humour to finish what had turned into a horror comedy night. I’d heard of this film but not seen it before and I love a mockumentary style movie especially if it’s funny and horror based.

Tremors (1990) Review

No monster movie month would be complete without a review/look back at Tremors, as a kid this was one of the coolest films I ever watched and it still remains that way today over 25 years later. I’d be very surprised if there’s anyone who hasn’t seen this and better still Kevin Bacon is being linked to a new Tremors TV show after all these years. Hopefully it will make up for the lackluster sequels that it’s spawned, anyway on to the film at hand…..

When asking for comedy horror recommendations on Twitter I got loads of people mentioning two films Cooties, which I watched the other day and Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. Being as I watched one recommendation and enjoyed it why wouldn’t I listen to my Twitter horror followers and put this one on.

“I’d highly recommend anyone into comedy horror give this a watch”

After watching a couple of comedy horrors  I took to Twitter to ask for some recommendations with most people mentioning this or Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. I decided to give this a watch first and will be watching the other one over the weekend at some point!

“go give it a watch the comedy elements are really well done and are the main focus of the film.”

Dog Soldiers (2002) Review

I’ve wanted to re-watch this film for a while but always end up choosing another one instead, but after including this in a Twitter vote against Z Nation Season One, Feast One and Two and Walking Dead Volume 1 it came out on top. So on a nice reasonably sunny Saturday afternoon I stayed inside to watch werewolves killing people.

“One death stands out as being how you’d want to go out if you were about to be eaten by a werewolf, I’d rank it was one of my favourite death scenes of all time.”
