Okay, so maybe I shouldn't have posted that one. I still agree with myself on this one...but it was a long time ago and maybe a re-watch would change my opinion. I'm not going to go rent it though because if my opinion then goes to support my previous statement,... well, I'm just going to be bitter.

So I'll just pretend I didn't post it.

So can I safely offer up the following for consideration?

C.H.U.D.
(Whether it stood for Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers - or as you discover in the film it means Contaminated Hazardous Urban Disposal, the name and the film poster let you know early on that C.H.U.D. is going to S.U.C.K.)

Anaconda
And get this (stifling laughter....) They made a sequel!

Maximum Overdrive
King's directorial debut had a lot of potential, but just didn't deliver. The teaser of the film was playing in theaters several months before release and didn't show any of the film at all. Instead, it showed Stephen King standing in front of a black backdrop, looking at the camera, and telling the viewer how freakin' scary the movie was going to be. This 90 seconds of teaser was very creepy because King's glaring eyes were very unsettling...he is kinda scary looking. But the movie itself was a total washout. (The teaser was almost worth the price of admission. The actual film screamed REFUND)

Looks like I am once again a 'thread grim reaper'. I just dropped in to listen to the echo.

Hello?

Blood Stalkers.

Good luck finding this thing, and if you watch it, maybe you can explain what in the world is going on in it. It's been 10+ yeasrs since I've seen it, but I do remember at one point a gorilla arm reaching through a window to choke someone. Yeah, seriously.

The Hills Have Eyes


Whaaat? I just saw this over the weekend, flippin through channels.

There is so much about it that doesn't work - story, stunts, acting. Some interesting makeup effects is the only plus it has.

The remake:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0454841/

You know whats strange is that I use to love Wes Craven's stuff. There were just too many issues with the plot and the acting was not very good. I don't know that I've seen the original Wes Craven version though, I hope it's better.

The original is better, The hills have eyes part 2 is coming out soon, I know I'll see, even though it's against my better judgement.

I don't expect to much with my horror films. I liked Maximum Overdrive, I enjoyed Ananconda and it's sequel.

I'm usually not expecting the next Psycho or Halloween with a horror film. I expect camp, cheap thrills, gratuitous gore and sex and a shallow plot. But I still love horror films.

That's not to mean I don't realize when a film is bad; i.e. one of my favorite films ever is The Return of the Living Dead.

I'm with John, I dont expect too much from horror films. To me, almost all are bad in one way or another. I just like em for entertainment purposes.

I found these to be big time offenders though.

Cursed - Someone told me recent it was supposed to me a comedy. I wish they had told me that before

Holloween 3 - It totally went over my head.

Hostel - After all the hype, I was super dissapointed. Would have made a better short film

Texas Chainsaw Massacre: the beginning - Used almost every lame horror cliche in the book. if this was made 15 years ago, i wouldnt have cared, but the filmmakers should know damn well that horror audiences are too smart to fall for half the things in the film.

House of 1000 Corpses - Rob Zombie likes his evil characters a little bit too much. Since they had all the power in the film, I was bored waiting for the kids to die.

Did that film feature a wooden mannequin?

Evil Dead - the sequels managed to outshine the original.
Tromeo and Juliet - Troma films made this very very b grade horror film some years back.

Justin, yes it did, and other than "leprecuhan" it's one of the worst horror movies I've ever seen.

Just to add to the list, friday the 13th, the one where "jason is in outer space"
sorry I don't remember which number it is? I think it's friday the 13th part 10? Either way it was really bad.

The People Under the Stairs.

Rent it, I think it's secretly a comedy. It's that bad.
