Horror Talk / Death Ship (1980)
« on: February 21, 2019, 09:11:59 AM »
Despite some potential in the creepy setting and solid atmosphere, this movie just drags and drags with inaction and ends up being overly dull and tedious. It's not a complete waste, but honestly, I can think of at least 16 better horror flicks from 1980 alone. Definitely isn't one I'd watch a second time.

Have you any thoughts on this dull affair?

Horror Talk / 2-Headed Shark Attack (2012)
« on: February 18, 2019, 10:53:54 AM »
With a story as thin as this one had, along with the lackluster performances and utterly atrocious CGI, it really makes you question the point of 2-Headed Shark Attack. I get that there's mild appeal in strange animals (which is 85% of why Sy-Fy still makes original movies), but this was just horrible. Only a single performance was worth watching for - otherwise, I'd recommend just about any other horror flick.

Any thoughts on this abomination?

Horror Talk / No Escape Room (2018)
« on: February 15, 2019, 06:31:50 PM »
There's a few things I really like about this movie (such as the main performances and some of the sequences), but it does boast a pretty god-awful conclusion that pretty much left everything unexplained. It's a big downside, but some of the action and performances beforehand do a bit to try and counter the atrocious ending. Overall, while not a great movie, for a Sy-Fy original, especially a modern-day one, I'd say the movie's around average.

Horror Talk / Family Reunion (1989)
« on: February 07, 2019, 05:10:59 AM »
This is a somewhat obscure, low-budget late 80's horror flick, but it has a sort of charm that I think excuses some of the downsides, such as occasional sluggishness of the plot and portions of the story that don't seem to go anywhere. Family Reunion takes itself pretty seriously, but there's still fun vibe to be found. I can't say anyone would love it, but I do think it's interesting enough to warrant a watch.

Have you seen this obscure 80's flick?

Horror Talk / Ghost Voyage (2008)
« on: January 22, 2019, 09:12:12 AM »
This is a pretty uninspired movie, with a plot twist you can see coming from miles away. Most of the characters are virtual non-entities, and really, most of the special effects range from mediocre to bad. There are more than a few decent-to-good Sci-Fi/SyFy movies, but this certainly isn't one of them.

Horror Talk / The Murder Clinic (1966)
« on: January 19, 2019, 10:23:50 AM »
While this early giallo lacks the flair of it's contemporaries, it still had a pretty good atmosphere, some decent twists, and a pretty fun setting. Definitely not the best Italian giallo, but for a one-off director, this isn't a bad little picture.

Have you seen this 60's giallo?

Horror Talk / Alien (1979)
« on: January 17, 2019, 10:47:17 AM »
A classic of the science-fiction/horror genre, Alien does a great job with pretty much everything, creating an intense, suspenseful film that's certainly worth a viewing.

What are your thoughts on this classic?

Horror Talk / Poison for the Fairies (1985)
« on: January 16, 2019, 06:28:21 AM »
Very much a slow-burn, this Spanish film has a pretty ominous feeling if you don't object to the singular focus of two young girls as the main characters. It does take some time for us to reach the fun conclusion, but I generally think it's worth it.

Have you any thoughts on this atmospheric Spanish flick?

Horror Talk / The Deadly Camp (1999)
« on: January 15, 2019, 03:29:56 AM »
While the kill scenes in this Asian film are decent, there's far too much time spent on the ongoing drama between the characters, which wasn't something I found particularly enthralling. With far more in common with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre than contemporary slashers at time time (Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer), The Deadly Camp had potential, but just didn't go anywhere interesting with it.

What are your thoughts on this Asian slasher?

Horror Talk / A Tale from the East (1990)
« on: January 13, 2019, 02:51:34 AM »
This movie can get utterly goofy at times, yet, if you're a fan of 80's/90's Asian fun, I suspect the flick would come across moderately well. When the movie veers toward horror, it hits most of the right spots, but unfortunately there's a stronger current of both fantasy and comedy present.

Have you seen this Asian flick?

Horror Talk / Re: Unmasked: Part 25 (1989)
« on: January 13, 2019, 01:02:04 AM »
I saw this around four, maybe five, years ago. Certainly an interesting and somewhat unexpected film. When I get around to re-watching it, I'm curious if I'll enjoy it any more than I did the first time (ultimately, I found the film around average).

This movie reminds me, on a side-note, of the The Wretched Auteur's 81,000 Frames (2011), though Unmasked has a lot more rewatchability.

Horror Talk / Mystics in Bali (1981)
« on: December 28, 2018, 06:57:48 PM »
This Indonesian horror film has a few interesting scenes in it, and the folklore behind it's origins are mildly unique, but honestly, this movie didn't do it for me at all. It felt sort of hollow, and the interesting stuff didn't make up for what this movie lacked.

Have you seen this 80's Indonesian film?

Horror Talk / Re: Kung Fu from Beyond the Grave (1982)
« on: December 27, 2018, 06:27:40 PM »
If you don't mind a little (a lot  [*uhoh*]) of Asian goofiness, it may well be.

Horror Talk / Kung Fu from Beyond the Grave (1982)
« on: December 25, 2018, 11:42:45 AM »
Goofy to the extreme, which is usually a turn-off for me, what saves this martial arts/horror hybrid is that it's pure silly fun from beginning to end. A Dracula who knows kung-fu, some hilarious special effects for black magic, and a pretty easy-going story, if you're a fan of Asian horror from this era, Kung Fu from Beyond the Grave may be worth checking out.

Horror Talk / Beauty and the Beast (1962)
« on: December 22, 2018, 10:54:46 AM »
There are some spooky sequences here, and moderately decent special effects for the time, but as fun as I found the film, it would definitely disappoint those looking for version of the story dripping in both horror and suspense. A fun little movie, but not horror enough to bring in fans of the genre, and not memorable enough to really stand out that well.

What are your thoughts on this 60's version of the classic story?
