- Saw II (best twist ending.)
- Saw VI (again, feeling generous.)
- Saw III
- Saw V
- Saw IV (I really don't even remember this one. I know I saw it, but don't ask me to tell you about it.)

It falls on Lucy's shoulders to defeat the Count. This Lucy (Mina in the novel) is well aware of Dracula's intentions and she uses them to ultimately defeat him. This being a Herzog film the ending is kind of a downer.

It's not really Herzog but wouldn't it be awesome? I would pay to hear him read anything.

Let me first say that if you rent/buy/steal this movie because you want to see a Death Tunnel, you are going to be very disappointed. They don't make it into the actual Death Tunnel till the last 5 minutes of the film and at that point you have really given up all hope. Next bit of advice: if you see this movie at your local used record/dvd store for $3.95 and think "Let's buy that! It will be fun." Don't. Just don't. Because it will become part of your collection, a bigger embarrassment than Breakin or The Phantom Menace.
Did Bloody Disgusting really call it "just damn scary?" Did I see the same movie?

Sorry for the serious lack of posting lately. I haven't been feeling well. But, I am back on the bandwagon and look for an insightful review of the film "Death Tunnel" on these pages soon...
WARNING: Do not go attempt to watch "Death Tunnel" in anticipation of my review. Trust me.

Turns out, the Director is still making his film, and the geek, daughter, and the rest of the Scooby gang are the new stars (couldn't see this coming...)
At this point the movie just becomes totally ridiculous. Sophie Monk, although she is quite pretty and I am sure has many fine qualities, cannot act. And in order to believe the whole premise you really have to believe her performance. She can't even sell a lap dance. The film features some nice gore scenes (death by tree and face removal being the best) and the always great William Sadler as the Director. But that is it. Oh, Sophie Monk is naked quite a few times, so if that is your thing by all means....see The Hills Run Red... As for myself, I am regretting the $4 I spent on this today! Damn you VOD!

Black Sunday is all about atmosphere, howling winds, decrepit castles, and the beautiful Barbara Steele. Barbara Steele plays Princess Asa Vajda (the name of my next cat,) a powerful witch who is put to death by her brother sometime in the 17th century. Asa and her boyfriend, Javuto (henceforth known as Prince Valiant) are forced to wear "The Mask of Satan" before meeting their end. "The Mask of Satan" is a mini Iron Maiden, the perfect gift for the hard to shop for person on your Holiday list....

- January: The Brain that Wouldn't Die
- February: Night of the Living Dead
- March: Teenage Zombies
- April: Dementia 13
- May: House on Haunted Hill
- June: The Terror
- July: The Devil Bat
- August: Nosferatu
- September: The Phantom of the Opera
- October: Frankenstein's Daughter (really- that is the best they could do for the holiest of horror holys?)
- November: Revolt of the Zombies
- December: White Zombie
Of course, I already own most of these movies, but can you ever really have too many versions of Night of the Living Dead? So here is the kicker- there is no January in the calendar! They sent the January movie: The Brain that Wouldn't Die, but they skip the month all together on the calendar. I am pretty OK with this but it makes me wonder: do they know something we don't know? Spooky huh?
By the way, I must have seen The Brain that Wouldn't Die 100 times, but if I get really desperate or come down with the flu, I will watch it again and give my usual detailed analysis. Or, I can just tell you it is a groovy movie about a douche bag and a head in a pan and leave it at that. On to February!!!

Thanks to Trent from Pink is the New Blog for bringing this to my attention. This short, entitled Statuesque, premiered on UK Television a short while ago. Not only was it created by Neil Gaiman (this blog is very close to becoming a Gaiman obsessive blog) but it also stars Bill Nighy, one of my favorites. You might remember him from a little film called Shaun of the Dead. Enjoy!!
