    Top 6 Horror Movies 

    Happy Halloween!! I like to consider myself a horror specialist. I only enjoy the highest quality horror film. And high quality doesn’t mean a big budget Michael Bay remake with girls from a CW show running with a wet t-shirt. Great horror movie don’t have to cost much at all. All they need is the ability to make you check the back seat of your car before you leave to go out at night. So that being said, I’ve put together a little top 6 list of great horror movies for you to watch this week as you prepare for the 31st. Enjoy!

    6. The Blair Witch Project

    This film is arguably the greatest low budget horror movie of all time. It didn’t rely on CG monster or CG ghostly effect, and no gory effect need. This movie captivated viewers with it’s marketing ploy that this was a REAL story. Audiences were scared by what you didn’t see in this suspenseful horror great.

    5. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original)

    This movie really captures a raw fear with eerie music and scary characters that put the audience in the middle of nowhere with these terrorized teens. This movie has a reputation for being very gory but truth be told, there’s pretty much NO gor in the film. That’s how good it is at terrorizng your mind into fearing the unseen.

    4. Splinter

    Here’s where the gore picks up! This movie puts a unique twist on diseased zombie movies. It feels like an homage to The Thing but it is in no way a copy cat. It also has one of the most eye popping mutilation scenes in horror history.

    3. The Strangers

    This movie will truly scare you into being afraid of your own house. This film utilizes sound and visual paranoia to make viewers uneasy. It successfully scared the CRAP out of me!

    2. Trick r’ Treat

    Not since the John Carpenter classic, Halloween; has a movie come along and really capture the essence of scary halloween themed movies. This anthology will take you on a rollercoaster ride of horrors with some enjoyable over the top stories and memorable characters. I didn’t find this movie scary but WOW did it quickly become one of my favorite horror films of all time. The child like pumpkin kid is truly the next iconic underdog slasher.

    1. Halloween

    The all time greatest horror film in my opinion is Halloween. This low budget film took a William Shatner mask and turned it into one of the most iconic horror slashers to date. Carpenter really strikes fear into the audience by coming up with a film score that is still creepy today. The scares are simple but extremely effective and this horror slasher’s origin story is truly good and not just a hack and slasher.

      Very nice list! I love that Trick r’Treat has got a mention because it is the quintessential Halloween movie that really captures the essence of Halloween and, while attempting to scare us, leaves its audience feeling nostalgic about childhood and with a warm feeling about Halloween.

      The Blair Witch Project is a great horror movie. There are some supposed horror fans who attack it, saying it’s not scary and was overhyped. Thing is, even if I didn’t like it (I love it), I would still recommend it to others, because it managed to keep the horror industry economically afloat just when critics were hoping horror movies would stay off the big screen for good.

    RUN!! It’s Godzilla…again! 

    Back in 1998, Roland Emmerich was riding high on the wave of his ID4 movie success and was anticipating the release of his follow-up Americanized take on Godzilla. Despite the studio’s Cloverfield like marketing campagne, the movie wasn’t well received by critics or audiences. Now America is at it again. Back in March, Legendary Pictures made an announcement that they will be bringing a new Godzilla Film to America. (without Rolland Emmerich) Sucks, there goes that ID4 vs. Godzilla movie we’ve all been hoping for. Well all has been silent about the film but this week, twitchfilm.net has what looks to be an early concept design of what the green giant may look like. According to twitchfilm.net, the pics were originally posted on flikr by a user who had been told by a “friend in the movie biz” that this was a design they were looking at. Another recent update comes from, Blood Disgusting and they confirm that the design is NOT official. Could this just be an artist going, “OOOOH OOOOH LOOK WHAT I MADE!!” You can click this link to check out more on the article, http://twitchfilm.net/news/2010/05/is-this-how-godzilla-will-look-in-the-us-reboot.php

    Jonah Hex Trailer! 

    One of DC Comics lesser known characters with a  really gross burnt face is hitting the big screen this summer and for a C-List comic book character, It has a pretty amazing cast. Jonah Hex is played by, Josh Brolin. The movie also stars the hottttttttttttttttttttttt Megan Fox, and the lead villain is played by the great and very spooky/creepy, John Malkovich. The effects seem pretty good. It should be a fun popcorn movies. It doesn’t seem like anything ground breaking but I’ll probably go see it. After all it has, guns, special effects, explosions, and Megan Fox. That’s pretty much everything you need in a summer movie.

    First Image of, THOR!!! 

    I’ll make this one kind of quick because i’m so excited to share this with people.  Yup, I just had a total nerd-gasm. Thor has been filming for months now and shockingly, no leaks have popped up on movie news sites. Thanks to superherohype.com and yahoo! movies, we can finally see (a little bit) what Thor will look like. It’s only a tease but wow. So far it looks faithful to the comic. ENJOY! If you have problems with the image then here’s a link to the superherohype post, http://www.superherohype.com/news/thornews.php?id=9345

    first look: Thor

    3D or not 3D? That is the question. 

    So I recently went to the movies to see Clash of the Titans. I was very on the fence about seeing it in 3D. I know that the movie was shot without the intent to release it in 3D but in the end I guess the studio said, Hey! all the cool kids are doing it! So they went ahead and converted to 3D format. Knowing that I wasn’t going to see anything eye-popping in three dimensional format. I STILL went with the 3D. I can honestly say, I wish I just would have seen it in standard format. Don’t get me wrong! Clash of the Titans was a great popcorn movie. I enjoyed it just as much as the original oh and SPOILER…(the owl makes a cameo) but there was nothing that the 3D did that caught my attention like Avatar did. To me, it was a quick way to get more money out of people by making the 3D version because ticket prices for these movies or more $ than a standard screening. My spidey sense was tingling about this but they got me; hook like and sinker.

    This popular trend has officially divided my feelings on what I think of 3D movies. On one hand, you have so many movies slated to come out in 3D that may be big budget popcorn movies but they really don’t concentrate on bringing that visual flair that 3D is supposed to bring the viewer. People need to be more aware of that because then it’s just the film industry ripping off the consumer. Unless you enjoy that kind of thing! If you actually paid to see Final Destination in 3D then you probably think I’m crazy.

    On the other hand you have these visually stimulating movies being shot in IMAX 3D that are bringing film making to another level. Movies like Avatar and Iron Man 2 are concentrating on bringing the viewer into an immersive experience.

    I’ve learned the hard way. I will never have another Clash of the Titans experience again. I’m writing this because I hope more people become aware of this. That being said, let’s have fun with 3D! Lets push the limits in what it can do. If more people keep making My Bloody Valentine 3D..it’s just going to become a cheap parlor trick that will end-up as a bad joke on a VH1 special when they talk about our decade.
