Friday the 13th is a cult movie, you can love it or not but it’s impossible to consider this movie outside this flag. So many movies characterized this slasher series, moving from good (chapter 1, chapter 9) to bad quality (chapter 4) ones, strengthen fan population over the world.

CARRIE – Kimberly Peirce

When I was growing up, there was one thing you could bet on in the month of October: Horror movies at your local movie theater. We couldn’t wait to see the next sequel of either Friday the 13th, Halloween, or Nightmare on Elm St. It was the 80′s, they were silly cheese, but they were a lot of fun. Over the past several years, the pickings for horror films in October have been getting slim. This year is no exception. There is only one horror film out this month and it’s a remake. A remake of a classic tale from Stephen King about a young girl with special powers that is known the world over by one single name: Carrie.

MACHETE KILLS – Robert Rodriguez

Let me first tell you, this film is not for everyone. Certain directors have a fan base that pretty much follow them anywhere. If you’ve seen director Robert Rodriguez‘s other films such as; Planet Terror, Desperado Trilogy, or the original Machete then you will be familiar with Machete kills humor, over-the-top violence, and nods to the “grindhouse” B-films of the 70′s.

SPRING BREAKERS – Harmony Korine

I have said many times that I enjoy films that are “hidden treasures” (films that came out that you might’ve missed, but discover later and end up being quite surprised). Discovering these “quieter” films that have slipped past us because of films like Iron Man 3 or Pacific Rim hogging the box office, it is a treat to discover them at home and sometimes they take us by surprise. In this case, Spring breakers took me by a huge surprise.

YOU CAN’T KILL STEPHEN KING – Ronnie Khalil, Monroe Mann, Jorge Valdés-Iga

I have said before that I enjoy all forms of films. It is also nice to take a break from the big budget films at the theater and see something a little more..lower budget. This would fall under the Independent films category. As a full supporter of the Stephen King program “Dollar Baby” films, I enjoy the smaller films for entertainment and quality of storytelling, However, my latest review is not a “Dollar Baby”, but it is Independent and it is Stephen King related….related in a way you won’t believe! So, here is my review of You can’t kill Stephen King
