THE GREY – Joe Carnahan

There are certain actors that seem to do just about every and any film that comes their way. Actors like Robert DeNiro, Samual L. Jackson, and Liam Neeson. With so many films coming out, some get lost in the shuffle, others are blockbuster hits, and some make you scratch your head and wonder; Why did they film this? Oh yeah, the paycheck.

WOMAN IN BLACK – James Watkins

In life, we have many different types of discussions. On the topic of Films, many different subjects come up. Things like why did they have to make a sequel to that?, Is the original better than the remake? and Best (fill in genre) Film of all time? Well, one subject that always seems to come up is, Hollywood doesn’t make good Horror films anymore.

THE CABIN IN THE WOODS – Drew Goddard

It has been awhile since I’ve been to the movie theater. Usually this time of year, Spring is considered the box office’s slowest time. Everyone is waiting for that big Summer Kick-off which usually starts first week of May. However, it seems that this time of year, there is at least ONE surprise film that takes us off guard that we don’t see coming. A film that puts a twist on that particular genre. In this case, it’s Horror films. Horror films have been a rollorcoaster ride for many years. With Slasher films of the 80′s, the “Make fun of the Genre” (like Scream) in the 90′s, the “Torture” Horror films of the 00′s, and now it’s time for something new. And right now with the release of Cabin in the woods, we have that “new” face of Horror. It’s called; “the twist”. That’s right, take a scenario that we all know and have heard of before and give it a twist you don’t see coming – that’s Cabin in the woods.

THE DEAD – Howard Ford, Jonathan Ford

Being a huge fan of living dead films and of Night of the Living Dead, it is hard to watch these type of films because you know going in that it won’t be as good as NOTLD or that they are just gonna try and copy it somehow. Well, I was completely wrong when it came to this film. I was blown away by The Dead. It is original, heart-warming, and for once it takes place in another country! Finally something different, but it doesn’t stop there with its originality.

BAG OF BONES – Mick Garris

One of our greatest writer’s of all time, Stephen King, has brought us many, many wonderful tales of horror, susupense, and wonderment. Over the years, some of these tales have been brought to the big and little screen. There hasn’t been a Stephen King film since 2007 which was The Mist and 1408, however, there hasn’t been a King film made for T.V. since 2006 which was Desperation, directed by Mick Garris. Well, Garris is back behind the camera again with his latest adaptation of a Stephen King novel.

THE STUFF – Larry Cohen

So, I have seen a lot of films in my 39 years, so many that sooner or later you are bound to come across a film that just is the biggest piece of crap, the worst acting, the brainless storyline and horrible F/X. I thought when I saw films such as Halloween 3, Jaws:the Revenge, Jennifer’s Body, Twilight and a few others, that those were the worst.

THE EVIL DEAD – Sam Raimi

Everyone who knows me, knows that I am one of the biggest 80′s fans out there. It was my time, my Generation, & oh, what fun we had! In the year 1981, it was an interesting time for films. JAWS and STAR WARS ruled the 70′s, and with EMPIRE STRIKES BACK taking over as the biggest film of 1980, the 80′s were off to a good start and it would only get better! In 1981, in the world of Horror films, there was basically one thing that ruled the box office: slasher films!

JAWS – Retrospect

Summer has started months ago. There is one tradition that I do this time of the year as a personal way of kicking off the best season of the year and that is, I watch the Classic film Jaws. When you think of the 1970′s, many things come to mind. Such as the Vietnam war, pet rocks, hot rods, cool music (well, some of it was), horrible fashions and hair. There was also some of the Best films we’ve ever made come out of the 70′s: The Godfather, The Exorcist, Star Wars, Satuday Night Fever, Grease and many others. However, there is one that started the trend of Summer Block Busters that was a little film about a big, big shark. That Classic film is Jaws.

BURIED – Rodrigo Cortés

Everybody knows how much I love what I do when it comes to writing and talking about films. However, once in awhile, a film comes along that takes me by surprise and I get very excited about it and can’t wait to tell somebody..anybody! This is one of those films. Most importantly, my wife is a little tougher about films than I am. She didn’t want to see this, but I told her those golden words, “Trust me”. And well, she’s glad she did. Another thing I love about telling you about this film is, it wasn’t a big blockbuster. Wasn’t a sequel, a remake, or a disappointment.

CLEAN – Alexander Michaud

Splatter, soft-core and heavy metal are the explosive mixture injected by Alexander Michaud to slide over the sixty minutes of Clean. For some points of view it’s an amateur work, from other it’s mature. At the first group belong photography (not always well-defined) and editing (unsure and unfortunate in breaks), while the direction moves well through close-up, details and rapid movements incrementing tension involving audience to feel like a voyeuristic eye beside a wall.
