I have rented five horror films for Halloween (even though I own loads of horrors). I have watched three of them already.
The Dark Place - most recent adaptation of 'the turn of the screw'.
I didn't really like it. It took forever to start and the people were all weird in it.
One last call
The victims recieve a voice mail of their last moments before they die. The date, day and time of their death is sent through with the message even if the message is sent 5 days before the day of their death. Wasn't bad, I would watch it again.
The most recent one (think it was done in 2008). A school teach obsessed with one of his students, breaks out of jail 3 years after killing the students family and basically kills her friends and ruins her prom night. It was too predictable.
Saving thye last two horrors for Halloween. One is called 'Trick or Treat' - Anna Paquin is in it so hopefully it will be okay.I do like Anna I think she is awesome. And I also rented 'My Bloody Valentine' - yes, I know it is a 'valantine' horror film, but I never got a chance to see it when it was out at the cinemas and I had wanted to. So now I get to, wow. Hopefully it will be good.
Now, as for any other films. My mother loves the old halloween film and the old fog (bangs head against wall). I hate both of them. The new ones are a little better as the stories have been improved slightly, but I'm not a fan. I may force everyone in to watching the first or third 'Nightmare on Elm Street'. The 3rd is my fave but we shall wait and see if I am lucky enough. I haven't seen the new one yet, I have been told the actor playing Freddy is the best thing about the entire film.
My aunt and teen cousin will be joining us this year (both are whimps when it comes to horror). So for my aunt sake I will be putting on the new 'Wolf man' which I went to see at the cinema, love it. I know for a fact I will have my teen cousin stating that 'that isn't a werewolf' all the way through the film. As far as she is concerned if the werewolves aren't giant wolves and vampires aren't attractive and don't glitter in the sunlight... then everyone else is wrong.
But who knows what we will end up watching. They are both freaked out by 'The Others' which has a really clever twist at the end and is not scary just atmosphric more than anything else. Well the possibilities are, from everything I own (I will place any of the films I think are a good watch in italics, in case you're having a film night and don't know what to watch) :-
