HAPPY DEATH DAY is fun, hip & refreshing!

Image
Surely you've heard about the new horror film Happy Death Day by now...it's only slaughtering the box office competition at the moment (looking at you, Blade Runner 2049).

Admittedly, I'm not the eager, trailer-seeking movie nerd that I was back in my teens, so my first exposure to any HDD related came when I saw the trailer play before 2017's It.  I knew right away that HDD was right up my alley.  It came across as Groundhog's Day meets, well, any '90s teen slasher.  I was excited, to say the least.

So fast forward to last Saturday (October 14).  I finally sat down to watch HDD.  And I was pleasantly surprised how seriously it doesn't take itself serious (if that makes sense).  With seemingly all modern horror movies taking a super dark, serious-in-tone route, it was nice seeing a horror movie, a slasher at that, just sit back and fun with its characters and audience.

Now I need to talk about the film's star, Jessica Rothe, for a moment.  Initially, s…

CULT OF CHUCKY is bat-shit insane & awesome!

Image
Well, today's the day...Cult of Chucky has hit DVD, Blu-ray and VOD.  And guess what?  I've seen it!  I've had Cult pre-ordered for almost three months now, and I was super stoked to finally receive it.  Now let's get past all this fluff and jump right into it...

*Minor spoilers!

The film opens up with Andy (Alex Vincent) on a date with a girl who is questioning his love of guns.  Of course, Any denies a "love" for them and insists they're only for protection.  He also correctly presumes that the girl has already Googled him and knows about his past.

I loved Curse of Chucky and especially Andy's cameo at the end, so it's really nice to his character brought back and expanded on in this seventh installment.

Back at his place, we see that Andy still has Chucky's severed shotgun-blasted head, which he tortures periodically.  There's also a few cool throwbacks to the previous films hanging around Andy's place (like a framed Kent Military A…

LEATHERFACE is pointless, but not all bad.

Image
I sat down yesterday and watched Leatherface, the prequel to 1974's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and 2013's Texas Chainsaw 3D.  I had heard a lot of mixed reactions for Leatherface on social media, mostly tipping the negative side of the scale.

Despite retconning the entire series and muddying up the timeline, I am a fan of Texas Chainsaw 3D -- so, yeah, I was a little bummed out when I found it this new one was a prequel to the '74 classic.

I had medium-to-high hopes, though, because the director duo previously made a fantastic and tension-heavy film with Inside.

And, well, here was my initial tweet regarding my first thoughts...

I’m 4 minutes and 48 seconds into Leatherface (2017) and, man, this is a bad movie. — Nick Meece (@nickmeece) September 26, 2017
Yeah, the opening was that bad.  However, the film did manage to get a little better.

A little.

In what I can only argue is a completely pointless and unnecessary film and adds absolutely nothing to the mythology of th…
