Writing a movie review may sound fairly easy. I mean, how hard can writing your opinions about a movie be? If you are writing movie reviews on what you want to be a professional spectrum, then it can be a bit more difficult than just voicing your opinions and talking a little bit about the movie. A good movie review should walk the line between being informative and being entertaining. You want to write a review that gives the gist of the movie, without giving away too much plot information.
Scary Movie has been the king of horror movie parodies since the release of the original Scary Movie in 2000. With every new incarnation to the series, they parody both classic and relatively recent horror movies. However, with every new incarnation to the series, they get a little less funny. As they get less funny and more unfunny and offensive, the fan base for them dwindles. Of course they will always have their fan base of 15 year old boys watching an illegal copy while getting trashed on the one beer they stole from the fridge. They will always have them. Scary Movie 5 really plays to that tiny fan base.
You know how on occasion you find that one horror movie that really gets under your skin? Makes you sleep with the lights on and see shadows on the wall. On occasion the right horror movie makes you fear for your life. The Apparition isn't that movie.
Sinister started off on a good note, the trailers that showed on television even peaked my interest and I have all but sworn off modern horror. It looked interesting enough so it merited a watch.
No matter how great the actor or actress, there are some are some projects that they just should have stayed away from. Projects that are career killers, the kind of bad movies that that once the critics deem it stupid then you are pretty much laughed your way right out of Hollywood. However, usually they projects seem pretty alright, awesome even, but half way through they just are turning out terrible. When you are an actor or actress in Hollywood, you can't just quit a project half way through. These actors should be given respect because they saw it through to the bitter end. At least they are not quitters and divas like other Hollywood talent that drop projects right in the middle because they don't like it.
Stephen King in his essay Why We Crave Horror Movies says that "I think that we're all mentally ill; those of us outside the asylums only hide it a little better - and maybe not all that much better, after all." So if we are all in fact mentally ill potential serial killers, then the answer to why we like horror movies is quite clear.
Malaysia has under gone an explosion of great horror movies since the dawn of the 21st century. In fact, I have yet to see a Malay horror movie made before the 2000's. Most likely because the censors stopped approving them after the Islamic boom of the 1970's. What makes them so extra-special is that many of the best ones draw upon the rich local history and myths from the land. Everyone knows the best horror movies are based on potentially true events. That fact is true in every country.
Everyone has heard the stories of hauntings for one movie or another, they are a popular ploy for putting butts in seats for their movies. Most movie hauntings seem to be this sort of advertisement scheme, especially for scary movies. It adds a little bit of a paranormal thrill to our otherwise mundane and ordinary lives. However, there are a few random movies that aren't in the horror movie genre to have ghostly appearances pop in.
In just about every true zombie movie in recent memory the plot lines are all just about the same. It focuses on a group of survivors trying to fend off the mindlessly hungry hordes of undead while hiding out in some defensible usually rural structure. World War Z takes on the mighty load of showing the zombie apocalypse on a global scale. No small feat, but one they pulled off masterfully
For those who don't have kids, Halloween is a fairly dull affair. Mostly, adults find themselves sitting around re-watching classic horror movies. However, at the billionth time watching Jason and Kruger terrorize young people, a change is needed. However, the thing about horror movies is that a lot of them suck. It is a sizable task to find decent ones that haven't already been watched too many times. Below are some fine films that horror fans may have missed when trying to sort through the bad parade that is new horror movies.
You have seen some bad movies, to be sure. Terrible, horrible films that either leave you snoozing in theaters or just plain leaving them. Like Waterworld, where the audience just was not ready to see Kevin Costner drinking his own urine, yet it was preparing us for Bear Grylls to drink his own. Certainly, Waterworld was among the biggest flops to date, right? Oh, how wrong you are. A flop movie is measured in how much money it takes to make opposed to how much it brings in. If it brings in less than it cost to make, it is then classified as a flop. So what are the biggest flop movies to date?
You have to admit that these films made you sleep with the lights on, but do you know some of the facts behind these thrilling scares? Sometimes the facts behind the scenes are dramatic and scary, other times they are just plain hilarious.
Studio Ghibli President Koji Hoshino announced on September 1st, 2013 that the studio founder and one of the most beloved anime filmmakers of all-time Hayao Miyazaki would be retiring from the production of feature-length films after his 11th feature film, The Wind Rises is finished. This announcement was made at Italy's Venice Film Festival, but Miyazaki does intend to make the announcement for himself at a later date. This news does not rule out the possibility of Miyazaki working on shorter projects, but for the 72-year-old legend, it may be time to rest. Regardless, the world is robbed of one the most creative and thoughtful minds of its time.
In terms of Asian horror, Korea and Japan are on and equal level. Though the horror films are produced in different countries, both countries produce fairly similar films with themes and scares. However if the horror genre isn't broke, why change it? Though many a fan are calling for innovations and changes from the norm. However, the following movies are classics before the fans caught onto the similarities.
When the words "live action" are thrown around in terms for adapting an anime or manga, it is best to just pass on it before it even comes out. Unless it is a romance manga or anime, those generally tend to turn out pretty good. However, anything with action scenes tends to be about as iffy as gas station sushi.
There are a number of spooky accidents that happen on almost every movie, in particular horror movies. Due to drunken stage hands, shotty safety standards, or maybe even a roaming ghost with dreams of Hollywood lights. However, nobody cares until someone gets hurts. In fact, most movies that are considered cursed most likely would not be considered to be so except for the fact that someone (or some cases, heaps of some ones) got hurt or even killed.
You may be well versed in conjuring, human centipedes, and a whole variety of saws, but do you think you can really call yourself a horror fan if you have never seen at least one movie with Freddy or Jason terrorizing a group of teens?
