Title: What's the Last Horror Movie You Watched?
Post by: L-Face on February 06, 2013, 12:29:02 AM
Since we're bringing back old/popular threads, I figured I'd necro this one. Would be nice to see your thoughts on these and maybe a rating rather than just listing the title of the movie.

Last horror movie I watched was Silence of the Lambs. Really, I kind of feel bad. I loved this movie when I was younger, now I think it's simply "meh." Don't get me wrong, Anthony Hopkins is fantastic as Hannibal Lecter and I do enjoy the Buffalo Bill character. But everything else is just.....it hasn't held up with time in my eyes. As I was watching it, I couldn't help but nitpick at it. Whether it be from certain performances (Jodie Foster) or the amateur-ish cinematography, I really don't enjoy this movie anymore.

If I had to give it a rating, I'm afraid it would have to be a 5/10, Average at best.

Just finished watching an Australian flick called Redd Inc., starring Nicholas Hope (Bad Boy Bubby).


Not bad, 6/10 would be my rating. Not the kind of movie you re-visit but was interesting enough to watch through. While the twist near the end is by far from original and to some people would be easy to predict, it worked well enough... at least for me, since I tend to not think ahead when watching films.

Should also mention that Tom Savini had some involvement with this one.

Last one I watched was The Cradle Will Fall (1983).

Actually, I've seen eight movies recently, but I don't want to start another shitstorm about "OMG You can't list more than one movie in the last horror movie you've seen thread - if you've seen more than one, then you're shit out of luck." I'd have already started my own thread, but I don't want people to think I think I deserve a special treatment.

Onto the film itself, it was an odd one. Plot was simple: A doctor is performing experiments on women, and through research, a lawyer finds out about it. There's more to it, but that's the basics. Anyhow, apparently this film is a supplement to the now-defunct soap opera Guiding Light (which I recall watching when I was younger), as some characters from the show appear in the background (same actors/actresses and all). At leas that's how I understand it. It's not a bad film, though it is made-for-television, so it's a bit on the lower end of quality. The last 20 minutes or so were pretty thrilling though, I admit. Overall, though, pretty average. 6.5/10.

I believe the last one I saw was Paranormal Activity 3.

I liked it. The twist at the end actually works, the implications for what is happening let us believe that a much worse evil might be inflicted upon the world... it made up for the slow pacing.

Not perfect, but not bad. I heard part 4 throws that out the windows and blows chunks however.

I watched the film version once, it was barely memorable.  I argue it's because it's hard to adapt my favorite novel of all time into a memorable film.

Last horror film I watched would be Silent Night, Deadly Night.  Great film; classic.

Oh, I'm sure I'll love it, just haven't gotten to it yet. Probably one of the few really popular 80's horror movies I haven't seen yet.

Some Australian shitfest called 6 Plots. No effective suspense, kills were all dry and offscreen and even the ending was uneventful. Skip at all costs.

Will give it a 2 as at least it wasn't shaky cam tripe.

I guess I picture it in my head worse than the film might actually be.
Title: Re: What's the Last Horror Movie You Watched?
Post by: L-Face on February 08, 2013, 04:11:05 AM
It's not scary, though. It's a movie that's shocking just for the sake of being shocking. There's no substance to it. In fact, it tries waaaaay too hard at being shocking and fails. In my opinion it does, at least.

Mimesis (2012)

Horrible, Horrible film that has people being forced to recreate the Night of the Living dead movie. 7 people wake up after attending a party at a house resembling the NOTLD one and have to fend off Zombies (well, people pretending to be zombies). The danger is real as the zombie players are actually killing anyone they catch. So many bad things about this one like how no one bothers to ever close and lock windows in this house! The main way these play zombies keep getting in! Open windows!

One of the worst NOTLD tribute movies. Not as bad as the 3D NOTLD but still a massive shitfest of a film.

skeleton key  8.5/10


just going to use my horror movie check list response

      Must say i was pleasantly surprised with this movie. It has an eerie ambiance that is persistent throughout the entire film.The setting is creepy as well as the score. All the sights and sounds of the environment kept me on edge waiting to see what happened next. This is the type of movie where jump scares are actually ok to use. They were built up to well and actually made me jerk when they took place. Having a main character that i actually gave two shits about was a plus also.

      This is the type of movie all the paranormal activity  tries to be but fails at in all aspects.  It's not a perfect movie, there are some slow parts that drag a little and there is very little on screen death most is just talked about and the deaths that are show are  flashbacks. As some may know ;however, there are some fates worse than death.

I finished Nosferatu and Killer Klowns from Outer Space today.  I already hit Nosferatu in the Checklist thread (a good film with some flaws) and I'll hit Killer Klowns later (no more or less than I expected it to me, a dumb film about clowns killing people in OTT ways).

Child's Play

One of the movie channels played the first three movies back to back this weekend, but I had to step out after the first, so I missed the other two. Otherwise Child's Play 3 would have been the last one I've seen.

Anyways, it'd been a while since I saw this one. Probably since I was 13, so a good 11 years. I forgot just how annoying the kid that played Andy was (granted, he was a lot more tolerable in CP 2.) Aside from that, I enjoyed the hell out of this movie. Brad Dourif was able to do something that seems impossible to do. Make a murderous doll actually scary. If anyone else had voiced Chucky, I don't think they could have pulled it off. Something about his voice makes it work.

The kills, while somewhat basic (aside from the voodoo kill, which is still pretty badass) were effective and the characters were likeable for the most part. Overall, it's not my favorite horror movie, but I enjoy it enough to recommend it.

7/10

The greatest part about it is the WTF moments at the end...

SPOILERS
Like when he gets burnt to shit... then he comes back looking like a toasted marshmallow (very cool) and then he gets shot to shit, in pieces... then he manages to come back with only one arm and one leg and choke a bitch, haha. He just keeps coming back like the T-800 at the end of the Terminator.

I recently saw a movie called All About Evil (2010) about a girl who owns an old theater and films real kills and shows them to the audience who think the kills are staged. It all leads up to a few bodies piling up and some gore but overall something about it just doesn't give it much of an impact. I ended up feeling like it was easily forgettable and nothing more. Might give it a 5 for some nice moments.

Wrong turn 5, guess I didn't really watch it because I turned it off half way through or fell into a coma...who can really be sure. Either way don't bother. I liked the first wrong turn movie, the rest sucked and I knew that 5 wouldn't be any better. Lesson learned.

Considering everything after the first has gone straight to DVD, pretty much a given that they'd suck. Though, that's not to say that there haven't been some pretty decent Direct to DVD movies. Dead & Breakfast, for example. Love that movie.

American Mary, which was pretty good. Katharine Isabelle should be in more horror movies...I would be gay with her for sure. The movie was great fun, although I think they could have pushed the extreme body modification much further and made people into utter true freaks of nature. Like real life barbie and the twins, those ones were on the right track.


Sick boy: Long boring build up to the end of movie where the action starts. Featuring unattractive plain girl and abusive plain boyfriend that need money so she gets a creepy gig babysitting. Blah, blah, blah. Went to bed when it started to get interesting, will ask husband how it went. My guess is the kid got bitten by the same tropical monkey in "brain dead" is now a zombie and everyone dies.

A couple of friends and I watched 2005's Call of Cthulhu.  It's a fun flick, and tries to be faithful to the 20's style.  Only problem is, there's really nobody around who can pull off the stop motion they needed, and despite an effort it's pretty clear that this was filmed with modern cameras, which hurts some of the effects shots.
Title: Re: What's the Last Horror Movie You Watched?
Post by: Crash Dummie on March 06, 2013, 06:49:36 AM
It's too bad; shitty cameras hid shitty special effects. But I still think it works fairly well, and they made Cthulhu look good.

Last one I've watched was Jason Lives. One of the few in the series that can be called a good movie in some respects. It's funny, well paced, and the newly zombified Jason has a few good kills and badass shots.

The Slender Man (2013)

Complete waste of time. You spend most of this found-footage film (which is only 118 mins long) watching someone shake a camera around while they're running from something you can't see. You get to look at the ground, look at the sky, listen to a lot of bad acting, and not much else. Worst movie I've seen in quite some time.

After watching the trailer (http://www.dreadcentral.com/videos/slender-teaser-trailer) for the game, I'd have to say that's pretty much the movie in a nutshell. It's so low-rent, the acting is so terrible, and the pace is so boring and uneventful that it's really not worth the time. I hope this is a cheap knockoff and not the film that was talked about on various sites like Dread Central. If done correctly, it has the potential to be a good flick.

Let me preface this by saying that any and all reviews that I do are on an enjoyment scale. They may be lopsided, hell, you may disagree with what I'm saying. So be it. That's the way it is. Blargh.....


Anyways, the last horror movie I watched was "From Dusk Till Dawn." This movie is a fucking classic. Hands down. It's a vampire movie that doesn't follow the mold, but does so in a way that isn't fucking insulting. I'm looking at you, Twilight. It takes what's established and adds to it in a way that makes sense as opposed to making up a bunch of shit that aggravates people. People can accept "Day Walkers" as long as their name is Blade. If your name is Edward Cullen, you can go fuck yourself. But I digress......at least Voldemort killed that motherfucker. Anyways......From Dusk Till Dawn may have some dated effects, but it's highly enjoyable. And "Did they look like psychos? Is that what they looked like? They were vampires. Psychos do not explode when sunlight hits them, I don't give a fuck how crazy they are!" Could be one of my favorite lines of all time.

On an enjoyment factor, 9/10

Post by: JasonzSon on March 23, 2013, 02:45:40 PM
I can dig that.  It's not outstanding in terms of making sense, in terms of vampires, etc., but it's as enjoyable a movie as most things Tarantino pens.  For the record, I'd probably give it an 8.

"From Dusk Till Dawn." This movie is a fucking classic.

Ditto. Never gets old watching that flick.

I recently saw Dream House. I had been reluctant to see it after the studio gives away massive spoilers in the TV trailers! Fucktards should keep shit locked down so the audience can experience the twists for themselves. Anyhoo, got passed that annoyance and gave it a watch. The movie plods along doing nothing while you sit there thinking "OK, this is building up for a big scene.." then nada. The ending comes and it becomes a silly, cliche of a mess. How the producers didn't read this script and think "hmm, this is crap" is beyond me. I thought the actors did good. The writers though, should be shot. By the killer. Who was revealed in the trailer.

De Rating: 3/10.

Hi. I've had a profile here for about a month, but this is my first post. Anyway...

I just saw Dust Devil (1992). Sadly, it appears as though I've seen one of the cut versions, and not the full-length one. Maybe I'll eventually watch the full-length one, as I can't say too many good things about the movie. I thought Wendy, the main woman, was annoying, though I liked Mukurob, for the most part. I must have missed something, though, as it appears that he has some injury on his hand during the latter parts of the movie. I also like Wendy's husband, Mark, though he did almost absolutely nothing in the movie that was important. I did like the location, as I thought it was very unique, and I wasn't expecting to watch a movie that took place in Nambia. Overall, I'd give the movie a 6/10.

Welcome to FE.  My latest was Hannibal Rising, by the way.  Faithful enough adaptation with some choices I would have made differently and one scene that literally existed only for the box art.  That was the only scene that really bothered me, although there were a few things early on I'd have moved around, cut different things and kept others, etc.  There's also the fact that adapting this largely depends on how Hannibal was adapted, and I have yet to see the film version of that.  I'll give it a 6.5/10 and swing one way or another on a second viewing.

Thanks for the welcome.

In any case, I just finished The Ghoul (1933). I liked the movie, and while I found it slightly boring at parts, it was overall a pretty good movie, I think. As always, I just loved the distinct comedy that only 30's and 40's movies have. I also liked all the actors and the people they portrayed, and there was even one completely unexpected plot twist at the end that, while foreshadowed, still caught me off-guard. However, also like a lot of older movies, it ended very abruptly, and that ruined it slightly for me. Still, overall I think it was a good movie, and I'd rate it a 7/10.

           Just finished watching the ward and must say without a doubt john carpenter is still the man.
 This movie was great and gives me hope that every horror film being made now is not total crap. What makes a very good horror film for me is the tone and atmosphere that is set up early on and carries through the movie. As one might come to expect from a score used in a carpenter film, it was creepy and brilliant. The  location is also creepy and gives off the feeling like man i never wont's to end up in a place like that.

          The ward is a movie that actually makes you think which i enjoy. The acting didn't have any stand out performances, but it didn't have any i would consider bad either. I found the kills to be interesting in that they sort of evolved as the film went on. At first they are sort of cut away make the viewer think about what is happening type kills then they evolve to the full on no detail left out kind.  Overall a great film, halloween or the thing it's not but, then again what is? The only things that hold the film back are an overuse of jump scares which are not that bad because they are used in the correct way and no stand out acting performances. 9/10

Last one for the night/morning.

Just finished La tumba de los muertos vivientes [aka The Treasure of the Living Dead / Oasis of the Zombies] (1982), and wow. That movie had some of the worst editing I have ever seen in a movie. It was dreadful. As for the movie itself, it wasn't much better. I did like two of the main characters, the son of the guy who was killed in the beginning, and the guy with the glasses who was the first to die out of the main four, but besides them, I didn't really like anyone else. The plot had potential, and if the movie was remade with better editing, a better script, better actors, better score, I might actually like it. Plus, I saw a dubbed version, and I HATE dubbed movies. I'd read sub-titles and watch a movie in it's original language any day. Anyway, I'd give the movie a 3/10, as there were some parts I liked.

Welcome, FanOfAllHorror, you seem an interesting person, and not bound by a specific genre or decade, like some horror fans are. Nice to make your acquaintance.

I last saw Der Student von Prag (1913):

It's the first full-length horror film ever made (making this year the 100th anniversary of horror movies), and I found it enjoyable. Plot-wise, it's about making a deal with the devil, and the outcomes that has. Very solid film, I thought, and found the last ten minutes or so rather thrilling. One thing that bothered me, however, was that while this is a German movie (Germany made the best silent horror films ever, and in fact was the first country who really had a grip on the horror genre), the print I watched has Italian inter-titles (though subtitled in English), which I found odd, and took about 15 minutes to fully get used to. Anyhow, it's the first horror film ever made, has a decently interesting plot, and it's German. Why wouldn't you want to watch it? 8/10.

Silent Night (2012).  I would give this film a 5/10, but 5/10 for a film like this would still be walking away from an enjoyable time.  I ultimately feel like this film is slightly below that, due largely due to the ridiculous red and green filters that otherwise ruin a perfectly average conclusion to an average film that doesn't know what it wants to be.  4/10.

Just finished watching Scream 3 (2000). Of course, I've seen it before, but that was years ago, and I didn't even remember who the killer was until it was revealed. I have to say that I just love the Scream movies. I didn't expect to really enjoy Scream 3, but it still had a good amount of wit, humor, and a meta-sense throughout the whole movie. Probably has something to do with the fact that Wes Craven was directing it. In so many horror film series, there're multiple directors. Seems rare to find a series by just one director. Anyway, I love all the characters from the film, and it was a fun romp, so I have to rate it 8/10.

The Thing

Not the Carpenter one, the prequel. I heard it was bad and wanted to see just how bad. On a scale from 1 to 10 on the terrible scale, it's about an 8. This is one failed to capture the feeling of Carpenter's film. Whereas that had tension and kept me guessing what would happen next, this one was predictable from start to finish. They tried to throw red herrings out there, but the outcome was obvious each time. The only moment I thought was relatively interesting was the pre/mid credit scenes that was basically the opening to the Carpenter film. That's really the only positive thing I can say about the movie. The effects sucked, the acting and characters were meh. This movie is just one big ball of meh.

Thankfully the Carpenter classic is on demand. Think I'mma go watch that and try to purge this turd from my memory.

I found it entertaining, and I liked how it was an actual prequel, but it doesn't have the soul it should have, and the scares don't work like they should.

Instead of being a cunning monster that keeps hiding, The Thing in this one just blowing its cover all the fucking time.

2. Stop the bad guy gore film
3. Slasher
4. Story-focused Sci-Fi with horror elements
5. Mystery thriller with fantasy/horror elements
6. Slasher with mystery thriller elements

I would have to watch 7 and 8 and pay more attention to classify them, which I'm not wont to do

9. Terrible remake with found footage elements

What I liked about the first one was that the Cenobites were not necessarily evil. They had a twisted lifestyle of pain, pleasure, and overall new sensations seeking. They sort of imposed it on people who solved the box, but still.

From what I read, in some sequels, Pinhead becomes a villain who wants to conquer the world and inflict suffering on everyone. Idf that's true, it sort of ruins the purpose and creepiness of the first movie.

Are We the Waiting (2017)

This is the first movie from 2017 I've seen, and the second Michael Taylor Pritt film I've been able to watch (Mile Before Sleep, which I previously reviewed, being the first one). And though this is Pritt's newest film, I actually preferred Miles Before Sleep. Before any of that, though, let's briefly discuss this movie. A group of five friends go to a secluded house to party before two of them defect to Canada, but shortly after getting there, they're stalked and killed off by a mysterious killer. The plot's simple enough, and honestly, the film doesn't throw many unique plot points out at you. The kills are decently done (especially one toward the end), but overall, I don't know how memorable they'd be. The design of the killer's mask (which is partially glow-in-the-dark) is pretty cool, and other small things, such as the atmosphere (save for the ending, which I'll expand on shortly) work out well. The acting's a mixed bag – I rather liked most of Pritt's acting, and others, such as Alyssa Cordial and Rob Pemberton, did a pretty good job, but some of Bridgette Kidd's lines felt forced. Actually, quite a bit of the dialogue was flaky, and sometimes fell a bit flat, but most of the time, that was tolerable. One of the places this was most notable, though, was the reveal of the killer. It felt a bit rushed, and I think that's something that could have been done better. The final ten minutes felt rather out of place, though. Obviously, I won't go over plot points, but let's say that the ending, in my opinion, came out of left field, and really, I didn't feel the final ten minutes were necessary. At an hour and 15 minutes (the final five minutes being credits), I think the movie could have been cut down a little bit, maybe trimming the ending (or removing it entirely) and a few scenes throughout the film. Miles Before Sleep, not counting the outtakes, was around 53 minutes, so given how this one was about twenty minutes longer, I couldn't help but feel as though it was dragging a few times throughout the film. All this said, it's a perfectly acceptable low-budget slasher flick. It's more formulaic than Miles Before Sleep was (or at least that's my impression), but I rather liked the group of friends as a whole, and thought that they did well together. It's a bit below average, but for a fan of lower-budget horror, it may well be worth checking out. 6/10.

Alien: Covenant (2017)


I haven't seen such hotly diverse opinions of a film since, well, Prometheus, this film's predecessor. The film starts off as Prometheus 2 (it was originally going to have a Prometheus title, but the lukewarm reception to that film probably killed that idea, no matter the reason Ridley Scott gives), features a twist that makes it something completely different for a while, before going on to become an Alien-style confrontation. This movie does a decent job of demonstrating how the creatures in Prometheus became the ones in Alien (to the point that it causes me to re-evaluate my opinion of Prometheus, which I need to rewatch at some point) and provides some interesting scares, though some items are made painfully obvious earlier than they need to be. I enjoyed the film, but mileage tends to vary to an extreme extent so it may depend partially on your ability to suspend your disbelief. My rating: 7.5/10

I know I've watched other horror movies since, but I'm drawing a huge blank so -

The Babadook (2014)

While I really enjoyed it and thought it was filmed and produced incredibly well, the ending left kind of a bad taste in my mouth. I also thought it kind of odd that The Babadook himself didn't have very much screen time at all, but can understand why they chose to do it that way.
Title: Re: What's the Last Horror Movie You Watched?
Post by: Crash Dummie on June 19, 2017, 06:04:37 AM
The Babadook is one of my favorite horror movie.

I loved the ending: **SPOILERS**the monster is just a metaphor for grief, it doesn't actually exist in a physical form. The mother ignored her grief for years, and with the added stress of her overactive kid, whom she resents for "taking her husband from her", she went nuts, killed the dog and tried to murder her son.

The ending shows that instead for burying her grief and pretending everything is fine, she finally realizes that it will never go away, but that she can take control over it by acknowledging it's existence and tending to it.**SPOILERS**

It was brilliant in my opinion.

My last horror was Jurassic Park, which I watched for class, and am currently procrastinating writing a paper on. This wasn't my first time, but it was my first time in ages and the first time watching it immediately after reading the novel. As is usual for me, I like the book a lot more, but this is a better movie than I had realized in the past, especially now that I know enough about the process to notice some of the additions Spielberg made. This may well be another 9/10 for me.

Maniac Cop and Maniac Cop 2.

I was aware of these movies well before I got around to watching them for the first time the other night. The second Maniac Cop installment surpasses the original by far, even if Bruce Campbell's character is gutted pretty early in the film. Also, gotta love that cheesy rap song about Matt Cordell that plays during the credits!

Maniac Cop 2 is a favourite of mine. I think it is definitely as good as the original. I think the shootout in the police station toward the end had to be cut a lot because it was originally too violent. Cordell's more zombified appearance is also an improvement over his look in the original.

Well at least you got to see Michelle Bauer getting soaped up for an awkwardly long amount of time.  [*browwink*]

I've never seen Lair of the White Worm - heard some mixed things, though.

What did you think?

And Bates Motel, assuming you mean the 1987 one, was a strange flick. Went all over the place, and the ending was so, so, so corny. I rather enjoyed it, though.

Never seen that one, but it's on my radar. Strange as it was, did you have a good time with it?

It was off the wall sort of and more on the psychological side but a fun watch definitely worth checking out

It’s on shudder right now if you have  it

I do indeed. Have a list of about eight movies I'm trying to get through this week, but I'll throw it on the potential schedule for next week.  [*thumbsup*]

Just finished The Shining (1980).

Never been a fan of this one. Seen it something like four times, and I don't think I ever enjoyed it. Definitely a film I see as below average.

My scathing review, when released in some months, will be quite the fun time.  [*hehehmm*]

Tales from the Hood 2 (2018)

I really liked the first Tales from the Hood (and in fact, it may be one of my favorite anthology horrors of the 1990's), but this was just overly insulting and pathetic. I'll post my full review in time, but suffice it to say this was easily one of the worst anthology horror films I've ever seen. 3/10.

The last showing

I had sort of high hopes going into this one and had been wanting to watch it for a while being it stars horror legend Robert Englund.

First the good points
Robert was brilliant as usual  and gave the sole shining performance  of the film.
His theater projectionist character was creepy , believable and menacing.
The concept of the film was interesting and something different.
As far as good points thats it.

Now the bad
The other characters in the film were  dull, poorly acted, and  didn't bring much to the table.
I just couldn't make my self care what happened to them and could wait for Roberts character to get back on screen.
Pacing was gruelingly slow and there just wasn't a lot going on. Death count was low and far between was more of a build up film but the build up just didn't work.
The plot also didn't make sense as it went along. As enjoyable as Robert is to watch he just couldn't carry this stinker alone.

Overall a very passable let down of a film with a few bright spots
2.5 out of 10     

2 for Robert and a half for the interesting premise.

Last one I saw was Train to Busan... not normally into Asian horror- but I liked it!

And they're making a second one, too! [*deal*]

Never seen Train to Busan (or the related, animated Seoul Station), but pretty much heard only great things about it.

Deathgasim

A bloody death medal infused fun ride of a horror film well more of a horror/comedy.
This was a great watch some of the most off the wall brutal gore iv seen in a while with a metal score that works well in this horror romp that has a metal garage band open the gates of hell  with its music
a little over the top on the humor side at times but overall a great film worth the watch

8/10

watched a few over my last couple days off

Halloween  (1978) re watched this classic 10/10 needs no explanation

The mutilator 1984 aka fall break
really wanted to like this one it had some good points  and some decent gore but overall fell flat
it had a score that tried to mix in some up beat music that just didnt work, had a very slow start  and some glaring plot holes and wtf moments that just couldn't be overlooked    4/10

slumber party massacre (1982)
This one i was really surprised with how well it ended up i really enjoyed this one
I think it showcased the  killers patters and motives well , the pacing was top notch with the kills piling in right away. not a wide variety of kill styles but it fit.
was it perfect no but its up there  it went  from the style of cutting away from the kills to showing the full on gorey goodness which annoyed me a little, it has massacre in the title come on.  There were also some minor plot holes and wtf moments
overall a very good movie that falls a little short of great 8.5/10

Saw Noroi: The Curse a few days ago. Great. J-horror found-footage (mockumentary style, not shakey cam). Mercifully short on jump scares but with some real standout creepy parts. A little on the long side.

It's on Shudder, would highly recommend.

I wouldn't have rated it quite this low, but I do agree that the one time I saw that movie, it sort of missed the mark. I didn't think it was terrible, but I was definitely expecting more from an 80's slasher of somewhat higher notice.

  Tenebrae
    A nice horror slasher/murder mystery in that classic argento style
does get off to a slow start and does drag at times but overall pretty good and worth the watch.  7/10
side note am a huge fan of argentos filming style

Dark Haul (2014)

Also know under the title of Monster Truck, this sucked. Like, a lot. I mean, it was awful. A fantasy-horror mix, it wasn't a good time.
