Mom & Dad (2017) Review

mom-and-dad-new-international-poster

Years and years ago, probably longer than I care to admit Saturday night would have been filled with alcoholic fun. Now however it’s more likely to see me and Mrs AcidBurnsHorrorShow searching Netflix and other online streaming services for something to kick back and watch. After looking through we settled on Mom & Dad, I mean it’s got Nicolas Cage in and lets face it that means it’s either going to be awesome or horrific. The premise of parents going mental and wanting to kill their kids for no apparent reason seemed like a good enough line to hook me in.

Annabelle Creation (2017) Review

annabelle-creation-poster-wide

I missed this one at the cinemas because as usual any places local to me had it showing at silly times during the week, sometimes it’s as if they want horror movies to fail in the cinemas. I always like a creepy demon doll story and this one answered the question I wanted to know after watching Annabelle, where did this bloody doll come from?

The Ritual(2017) Review

the-ritual-2017

I saw the trailer for The Ritual last year and I’ve wanted to watch it ever since. I tried to go to the cinema but it had awkward times like 10pm on a week day, that might not sound too bad but when I have to get up at 5am for work the following day it was never going to happen. This film arrived on Netflix last Friday but just like the UK fuck it’s own football fans by banning 3 o’clock kick offs being shown on TV, Netflix released this on every Netflix apart from the UK, typical. Still I managed to get a copy and sat down one night to see if it lived up to the high praise it’s been getting.

Leatherface (2017) Review

leatherfaceposter

Leatherface and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre rightfully take their place among the slasher movies that started the genre. These films are also probably right up there with the most famous horror films of all time. The last film before this one was pretty damn good, so I had no hesitation in watching this one as well. Obviously by the name you can guess it tells the origin story of Leatherface, how did he become the beast that we all love chainsawing people in the face.

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.

My Life in Horror 1987 – Near Dark

neardark_quad-1

After The Fly and Little Shop of Horrors won the 1986 vote on Twitter I once again took to the polls to find two films from 1987 to watch and review. This is possibly my favourite year so far with Hellraiser winning and also Near Dark. Now Near Dark I had never seen before, I’m not sure why it was just a film that passed me by. After the death of Bill Paxton I was reminded of this film and all I knew was it was a vampire movie and he was very good in it. So when this came out as a winner I was very happy to get it watched.

My Life In Horror 1986 – The Fly

fly_xlg

Along with Little Shop of Horror (read review by clicking HERE!) The Fly was voted with it as the second film from 1986 that I should watch and review. I’ve always loved The Fly movie, I’ve watched it loads of times from when I was a kid wanting to see all the gore to closer to the present day where I saw it as more than just a film with some gory scenes. I guess the question as with all movies from the 80’s is, do they stand the test of time?

My Life in Horror 1986 – Little Shop of Horrors

51extasfeol

So now I move on to 1986 with the voted for reviews as I cover two films from every year that I’ve existed for. The 1986 winners were two films I remember loving as a youngster The Fly which I’ll most likely review early next week because of it’s gore obviously and this Little Shop of Horrors because it was damn fun. So here’s my first 1986 poll winner review.
