Happy Death Day (2017) Review

happy-death-day-movie-poster-final

The other day I was looking for something to watch and Mrs AcidBurn suggested two films Happy Death Day or American Satan. I watched the American Satan trailer and decided I wanted something more horror based, so Happy Death Day it was. Now it might be PG-13 but that can easily work for horror films if it’s done well, if not you can end up with an unemployable MTV style teen film. So which is Happy Death Day?

The Cloverfield Paradox(2018) Review

the_cloverfield_paradox

After a two month break from reviewing for various reasons, I’m back and will hopefully be posting at least a couple of reviews a week. I’ve got a lot to get through having spent some time watching quite a few horror movies over the past few months. I decided to start with The Cloverfield Paradox which has had mostly negative reviews. The Cloverfield universe fascinates me, with three wildly different types of films all taking place in this monster filled universe I’m excited to see where they are going with all this.

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.

IT (2017) Review

I was worried recently that I’d miss this film at the cinema due to a knee operation but luckily I was able to stumble my way into the cinema and get it watched. You can read my review of the original by clicking HERE! Remakes and reboots are usually disliked by horror fans mainly because they’re miles below the original or they’re a pointless Hollywood remake of an Asian horror because people are too lazy to read subtitles.

Life(2017) Review

vkeotti

I was hyped for this film for a while and there was also a “fan theory” that it was a prequel to the upcoming Venom film. Now I knew that wouldn’t be true at all but it still peaked my interest in getting it watched. I finally got the chance and before it started I wondered, would this finally give us a spacey horror that was decent or would it be another blend of horror and sci-fi that totally sucks like normal.

firestarter

My quest continues to watch two horror films from every year I’ve been on the planet, the first winner of a Twitter poll was A Nightmare on Elm Street. The second winner I was surprised to see was Stephen King’s Firestarter turned into a film.

My Life in Horror 1984 – A Nightmare on Elm Street

a-nightmare-on-elm-street-main-review

So here we are at 1984 two horror films or at least films with a horror element for every year I’ve walked/crawled on the planet. The first winner of the 1984 poll was A Nightmare on Elm Street, this is a review but it also serves as a look back as I’m sure all horror fans already know about this film. Anyway if there’s anyone that hasn’t seen it are they really a horror fan?

I decided to ask the good people of Twitter to vote for two films from every year I’ve aimlessly been wandering the planet. I set up two polls and I’d watch and review the winner of each from 1981 hopefully right through until the current day. I was hoping to fill the polls with either classic films, ones I’d never seen or ones I’d not watched for a long time. So far the picks were great you can read 1981 winners An American Werewolf In London and The Beyond by clicking their links! But any way now it was time to watch the first winner Poltergeist…………….
