Featured Post - Mystery Movie Marathon

I thought I'd kick the new year off with another movie marathon. I thought it was time to check out a few old school mystery flicks. Som...

The Amityville Murders (2018)

In this marathon I’ve gone on angrily about how bad some of the movies have been. Many have been a complete waste of time, and several had nothing to do with Amityville at all and just tacked the name on their title. But that is just me being frustrated with a bad filmmaker and at the end of the day I’ve never been genuinely angry because after all they are just movies, right? That chanted with The Amityville Murders.

This low budget affair tries to tell the story of the DeFeo family whose murders preceded the supposedly haunting covered by the book and movie by a year and a half. If you are unaware the eldest son of a large family, Ronald DeFeo Jr. took a rifle and murdered his family. He claimed to hear voices and after the “haunting” became big news embellished his story to take advantage of it. This fictional take on the DeFeo murders has the house being haunted by spirits summoned by Ronald and his sister using the secret book that their grandmother left them. The dad is also abusive, which is why as children they summoned the spirits, and apparently grandpa is connected to the mob or at least some shady figures.

How is this all important to a ghost story? Well after becoming a drug addict Ronald starts to see shadow people and hear voices coming from the walls. He tries to tell his sister to leave before something bad happens, but she comes back after he murders everyone to put her nightgown on and calmly lies in bed for her turn. Also, it is insinuated that grandma knows what is going to happen because they have angered the spirits of the house. Oh, and grandpa gets some missing money that I guess the ghosts had stolen. The end.

As a movie I found The Amityville Murders to be tedious. Nothing happens for long stretches and when they do try to create some atmosphere and be creepy, I wasn’t buying it. There are also a few attempts at jump scares, but they don’t work at all. This isn’t helped by the fact that this is yet another telling of a familiar story that anyone who has read a single article on the Amityville Hauntings already knows. Maybe that is why they decided to take some liberties with reality, but more on that later. Somehow, they also made an already boring experience all that worse with a terrible editing job that has the movie clocking in at over an hour and forty minutes. There isn’t enough going on to justify that.

The acting is a bit wooden, and I was disappointed that they brought back Burt Young who played the patriarch of the DeFeo family the first time around, only to give him next to nothing to do as the grandpa who shows up for just a few minutes. The filmmakers also decide to use some painfully terrible CGI which inexplicably they keep going back to and lingering on. These shots are bad and distracting. So as a movie this is a failure. If only that was all I had to say about this.

If you are one of those horror fans that gets their jollies by purchasing a sketch done by John Wayne Gacy or collects the toenail clippings of Ted Bundy, then you can piss off right now because I’m about to go off on you. The filmmakers here decided to do a movie about a real-life tragedy and make some “creative choices” that are utterly reprehensible. To suggest that the grandmother knew her family was in danger and in some way was responsible for it by leaving the book behind and knowing that the place was spooky is horrible. I get that it is total nonsense, but she was a real woman who lost her family not some fictional character. Then to double down on some unnecessary shot at the grandfather being connected with the pointless subplot about the missing money is bullshit. This was a real family who went thru a horrific event, and while the people mentioned above are long dead it is disgusting that the filmmakers decided to try and make a buck off them. You want to do shit like this then make your own movie with fictional characters!

Of course, like I’ve already pointed out they decided to go with the name recognition to make a few extra bucks. Before you think that I’m being too harsh and that I should get over it let me drop one final bit of information on you. Before the end credits roll, we get a photo montage that mixes pictures of the cast in with the crime scene photos of the real murders. This includes several shots of the bodies including the children who were murdered. They used pictures of dead kids in their movie to give it a bit more shock value. Still want to defend these assholes? I’ve taken people to task here on the site for being bad filmmakers or for phoning it in to make a few bucks. I think this is the first time that I’ve ever called anyone out for being a shitty human being instead of just a shitty filmmaker. I hope to never watch a movie again that makes me feel the need to do so.

Screw The Amityville Murders and screw the director, the writer, the producer, and anyone else who thought this was an okay thing to do. You are a bunch of assholes. I’ve said what I needed to. Now I’ll get back to reviewing regular old shitty movies.

Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell (1995)

I’ve been meaning to check this one out for a few years now. I remember when this came out seventeen years after it was made there was a lot of buzz around it. It was billed as the Japanese Evil Dead, which is probably a disservice since those are big shoes to fill. But I can see why that was done since there are several gags that clearly were inspired by Rami’s classic. But I’m getting ahead of myself here.

The movie opens with a man being attacked by a woman who he is attempting to break up with so that he can marry another. She loses her mind and swears if he can’t be hers then he will be no ones. This leads to her attacking and when he defends himself, she is killed. Rather than call the authorities the man just buries her body under the floor of the house. Then the action moves to more than twenty years later.

Shinji, the man’s son from earlier, is working out. He apparently has quit his job and become obsessed with bodybuilding when his lady, Mika broke up with him. She is an aspiring journalist who is doing stories on haunted locations, so she shows up at his house. After some awkward small talk, the subject of the “house” comes up. Seems Shinji had told her some spooky stories about the house his father owned, and she wants to investigate it. He agrees and the pair, along with a medium, head out. After the tour things start to get crazy as the medium is attacked by a wall clock, becomes possessed by the vengeful ghost of the murdered woman, and goes on the attack. Much mayhem ensues and sure enough Shinji grabs a shotgun and drops “groovy”. Hey, I did say there were some familiar gags.

This low budget horror flick is a prime example of what you can do with a little bit of planning and a cohesive script. Clocking in at just over an hour long they waste little time establishing the characters before setting off to the house. Really, we only have the three characters and I suppose the ghost so not wasting too much time on them is a good idea. There are some wisecracks from the skeptic Shinji before things begin to get spooky. The character does feel inspired by Ash based on his hijinks and reactions to the situation. And of course, the fact that the only weapon he has against the angry ghost is his… you guessed it Muscles! While not terribly original I will give the filmmakers credit for making a movie that does have some twists and is entertaining.

Deadite on  budget!
The ghost and the possessed tend to pop into screen from odd angles and while not at all scary there is a fun vibe to their appearance. This is enhanced by the odd camera angles that the director chooses giving the movie a unique visual style that is reminiscent of Evil Dead without feeling like an exact copy. There is only one gory gag seen onscreen and that involves a knife to the back of the noggin’ with a protruding eyeball. It is goofy and fun and made me laugh. I also enjoyed that Shinji has to suck the demon out of Mika to save her from being possessed.

Bloody Muscle Bodybuilder in Hell isn’t a perfect movie, but I enjoyed it. The runtime is tight, the cast small, and we have one location. These are all key to staying in the budget and control of a micro production. The fact that it was shot on Super 8 also gives the movie a certain grainy charm that took me back to the good old days of independent movies. This is currently streaming on Shudder, and I think is worth a watch. Just keep in mind that it isn’t Evil Dead and to manage your expectations.

Halloween Ends (2022)

I suppose I should weigh in on this movie. I did watch it during my October marathon but wanted to let it settle in and give it a second watching before going on the record. The movie starts off with us seeing a guy named Corey being hired to babysit a kid named Jeremy. This kid is a little shit that had me rooting for Michael Myers to show up and murder his ass! Oh yeah this is taking place in Haddonfield, which I suppose is important to point out, and they talk about the killings. So Jeremy messes with Corey and locks him in the attic, which freaks the dude out. The parents arrive home just as he kicks the door open sending Jeremy falling three stories to his death in the foyer of their fancy house. Roll credits.

After that we hear Laurie narrating a book that she is writing. She talks about Michael terrorizing the town and how evil lurks even though he has been missing since he killed her daughter. Laurie lives with her granddaughter, which is important later. Laurie crosses paths with the now released Corey, who spent time in an institution after the death of Jeremy. Both being pariahs in town (they blame Laurie for taunting Michael causing his murder spree) she feels a kindred spirit. This leads her to introducing him to her granddaughter and the pair hit it off right away. The problem is Michael is still alive and uses Corey to bring victims to the sewer he has been hiding in. They try to explain away his unstoppable nature by hinting that the evil in him heals his wounds when he kills, thus making him stronger.

Some stuff happens as Corey loses his mind and takes the mask away from Michael. I suppose it is time for him to finish off Laurie accomplishing what his predecessor could never do. Though I won’t spoil the big twist other than to say that Michael is apparently sneakier than we ever knew. In the end it does seem as if they put the whole Laurie vs. Michael storyline to bed… hopefully this time forever.

This movie has issues, the first of which was obvious when I saw in the opening credits that four people were credited with the screenplay. Normally that means either a troubled production or far too many chefs in the kitchen. Here I think it is the latter as they try and squeeze too much into Halloween Ends for my liking. When Jamie Lee Curtis is on screen the movie is far more interesting as I have over forty years invested in her character of Laurie Strode. Seeing her living a normal life and being kind to Corey is sort of sweet. They also do a good job with the script showing that every time she starts to feel happy something is there to drag her back to the past.

The grocery store sequence is a prime example of that when she is twirling her hair and flirting like a teenager. We know she never had that chance given what happened, but that hope is shattered when she leaves the store and is yelled at by a woman whose sister is in a wheelchair and lost her family to Michael. Again, they blame Laurie for taunting him and bringing him back to town. There is some excellent stuff like this in the movie that kick you right in the feelings.

But I get the distinct vibe that the filmmakers or maybe the company wanted to use this movie to setup what they are wanting to do next. This might be the end of the story for Michael and Laurie, but this franchise is too profitable to let go completely. So, we get the story of Corey, who I initially thought was going to pickup the Shatner mask and carry on, though it doesn’t work out that way. Both from her initial monologue and the one that plays over the end scenes Laurie talks about the evil that exists. Basically, Michael is a symptom, but not the cause of the horrible things that happened. They establish this with the Corey character’s transformation from innocent kid who had a horrible accident to stone cold killer recruited by Myers. The only reason I can see to spend the forty or so minutes with new characters, specifically Corey and those tormenting him, is to establish that they can and likely will move on with a new killer and final girl. A more accurate title would have been Halloween Ends to Start Again.

The fact that fans hated the new characters and wanted the movie to focus on what they where expecting which was the finale of Laurie and Michael makes a ton of sense to me. And I also agree that when they aren’t on screen the movie suffers and isn’t nearly as interesting or engaging. But I also understand the reality of them wanting to continue, though I’m checking out and not at all onboard from here on out. I basically just ignored and “got thru” the Corey crap so I could get to the good stuff. Is that ideal? Not at all and it made for an uneven story which goes back to my too many cooks in the kitchen comment when mentioning the four credited screenwriters. But at least Jamie Lee Curtis got one more badass moment, which I won’t spoil.

There are a solid fourteen kills in the movie, some of which are generic but others a lot of fun. The best of them is a blowtorch to the face, a nurse gets stabbed/pinned to the wall in a callback to the original, and a Radio DJ gets his jaw smashed and loses his tongue. There is also a decent head stomping and a spike to the eye, so you can see they didn’t skimp on the gore. This is brought to screen with a nice combination of practical effects as well as some digital assists. The kills helped get me thru the parts where I thought things were slow and ramp up as the movie closes in on the big finale. All in all, I was happy with the kills/gore.

My final word on Halloween Ends would be manage expectations. There is a good movie in here, one that our favorite characters deserve. Sadly, they also chose to setup the franchise for the future and that takes away from what this probably should have been. But if you can look past those flaws, and this is a flawed movie for sure, they at least didn’t screw up the characters. So instead of running off to sign some internet petition demanding they redo this (I mean honestly guys… what the hell?) maybe appreciate what we got and move on. I for one am happy with what I got, flaws and all.

Naked Cannibal Campers (2020)

The movie kicks off with a lady running for her life thru the woods. She reaches a cabin with three scantily dressed ladies in it. They let her in and she tells them that a crazy person stabbed and killed her boyfriend. They offer her some tea to calm down, but it is a trap! When next we see her, she is unconscious, and the ladies are now naked and eating her guts. Well, that is how you start a movie I suppose…

Now we meet our main characters of Scott, Dale, and Rick. These three dudes are heading off on a fishing trip. They end up meeting the three ladies and soon are invited to supper. Though I don’t think they were expecting to be on the menu! The three naked witches who camp and eat people, see where the title came from, soon are faced with a mysterious man in an eye patch and the dead boyfriend who was brought back to life with some Mr. Miyagi style healing shit. The mysterious man is a warlock ready to do battle with his magic and he “Yoda” trains the now not dead anymore boyfriend in the ways of magic. Then they grab some guns and shoot them down… because I suppose the magic didn’t matter.

This is clearly not a movie that was meant to be taken seriously at all and I can appreciate that. There are some funny lines like “Witches get stitches” and when given a pill “You aren’t going to Cosby me, are you?” that do land. I honestly had a couple of laughs, but that doesn’t make up for the awful pacing. This feels like a long movie, and it is only sixty two minutes long! We get extended training montages (again never used the magic), a couple naked girls in the shower cleaning off blood scenes, needless dialogue that feels improvised, an extended driving sequence, and several naked rituals with chanting.

Okay that last one wasn’t so bad… but I think you can see where I’m going with this. They obviously didn’t have enough of a fleshed out script in place before running off to the woods to make their movie. Would it have killed them to spend a few extra weeks adding in some more plot and a few more jokes? I mean what they did have was decent enough, so I know that was possible. I’ll continue to point out when reviewing low budget movies like this that you need to spend time prepping before grabbing your camera.

Some other things to note was the occasional use of intrusive and obnoxious generic metal music that honestly doesn’t fit the scenes. Though again that was mitigated by the public domain tunes that are less annoying and fit the scenes better. Also, they make a big deal that Jill Whitlow, who most of us know from Night of the Creeps, appears. But be aware this is “stunt casting” as she is the lady running thru the woods and is in the movie for all of three or four minutes.

The kills are okay for a low or no budget movie. There is a clever to the face that was cool, and they do the old “legs in a hole” gag when poor Scott is eaten from the bottom up. Though again they sort of ruin things with the odd gunfight at the end which is done with bad CGI blood effects. It again feels like they ran out of steam or sort of half assed it with the ending.

Naked Cannibal Campers could have been a fun movie had they put just a bit more effort into the script. As it is I can’t recommend it. The movie has far too many flaws, the biggest being that for an hour long movie it is far too boring.

Spirit Halloween (2022)

The movie starts off “in the past” where we see a mean businessman named Alex Windsor showing up at a children’s home to evict them. He talks about progress and stuff before the matron of the facility casts a spell on him. He laughs it off until he drops dead. Years later we are introduced to our main cast of Bo, Carson, and Jake. These middle schoolers are in that awkward stage between being kids (trick or treating) and teens (wanting to go to the cool party). The big conflict happens when Carson wants to sneak in to a high school party instead of getting candy.

As a compromise the three decide to spend Halloween night sneaking into the pop up Spirit Halloween store instead. That seems cool until the ghost of Alex Windsor shows up. He has an hour to torment them by possessing the decorations and chasing them around. Oh and if one of them is sleeping or knocked unconscious he can possess them and finally be free to walk the land of the living for more than an hour a year! Toss in Carson’s older sister Kate, who figures out they snuck in and comes after the trio, and you have a movie.

I’m not going to lie when I heard about Spirit Halloween I was intrigued. I can’t think of another attempt to tie a movie to a store, thought it makes sense. There were so many possibilities and cool things they could have done it seemed like a brilliant idea. Then I totally forgot about it. A few days after Halloween I quite literally asked myself “what happened to that Spirt Halloween movie?” and immediately set out to track myself down a copy to watch. This resulted in the review that you are currently reading.

I’m sort of torn between being annoyed and enjoying this one. Maybe I was just dense, but I never got from the trailer that this was going to be a kid’s movie. Well okay not a kid’s movie but one targeted towards that odd “tween” audience that reads Goosebumps books. I went back after watching and checked out the trailer again and still don’t see it. Perhaps I had different expectations and because I got this watered down Saturday morning spooky show, I was disappointed. This wasn’t what I had hoped for as there are a lot of shenanigans running around the story being silly before anything remotely spooky happens and when that does occur it is maybe PG at most.

On the other hand, if I look at it as what I believe it was intended to be I can’t be that harsh. The cast is likeable and while the plot is predictable the movie is never boring. The setting of the Spirit Halloween store is fun, and they do make good use of the decorations. I also thought it was fun that Christopher Lloyd gets to voice all the animated decorations in addition to his brief appearance onscreen as Alex Windsor. There is even an appearance of television legend Marla Gibbs as Grandma G. If you have children, I think that the scares in this aren’t too bad and that they would probably get a kick out of it. Plus, there is even a neat little message about family squeezed in at the end. Considering the audience that it was made for I think that Spirit Halloween is a decent movie.

Don’t be fooled by the negative reviews online. Again, I believe this was sold to the wrong audience and that alone is why it is getting as much hate as I’ve seen. It is also likely why the movie sort of disappeared from most of our radars. Not an amazing movie but still there is fun to be had here for the right audience and expectations.

My top ten movies of 2022

It is time for me to take a look at what I thought were the best movies of last year. I thought I'd start off with some honorable mentions. Bingo Hell was an excellent independent movie with a great bad guy and a diverse cast of characters that I could root for. Let us In! is a true low budget gem from director Anthony Moran that blew me away with how ambitious it was as well as how well they managed to bring it to the screen. Finally Crabs! was a silly bit of nostalgic monster movie fun that I enjoyed immensely. All three of these movies were on my top ten list but were bumped as the year went on. All of them are worth checking out. Now onto my top ten of 2022.

I might as well stop at the bottom so that I can keep the suspense going. My number ten movie of the year is Deadstream. When this popped up to stream and I read that it was about a disgraced YouTuber who tries to get his followers back by visiting a haunted house I was more than a bit disinterested. I hate the social media influencer thing and watching a found footage movie about one of them held zero interest for me. But I'll be damned if this isn't a great movie. Cleverly written with decent scares I was pleased. 

My number nine movie is AntlersThis was a creepy and cool horror flick. I love the ending and the fact that it wasn’t Hollywood. The creature effects are simple but work perfectly and the entire idea behind it is more than a bit spooky. The kills are also disturbing in a subtle way that I promise will stick with you long after the end credits have rolled. 

Movie number eight is an absolute silly blast that is sort of hard to explain why it is so awesome, but trust me it is. I'm speaking of Psycho ApeThere are several independent movies on my list this year. Director Addison Binek knocked it out of the park with this totally absurd romp in the vein of The Kentucky Fried Movie with a bit of Benny Hill tossed in. This was one of the funniest things that I watched all year and I needed some laughs so it was much appreciated. 

Onto the seventh spot on my list. Sometimes you don't need a ton of locations or production value to make a great movie. Though I never thought I'd see such a well made Lovecraftian inspired gem like Glorious done on such a small scale and budget. Set in a rest stop bathroom this movie relies on just a couple actors and lots of speaking to tell an epic "save the world from Eldritch doom" story. It was fantastic and worth checking out. 

Number six is another movie that I would never have guessed I was going to dig. I'm not a Dave Grohl but I'll be damned if Studio 666 was a hell of a lot of fun. I can’t believe that I liked this movie, but it was funny, and the gore delivered the goods. There is a great cast. Overall, I can’t complain about anything with this one. It is a blast and I highly recommend it. Really who knew that Grohl was so damn funny?

Number five is a prequel to one of my favorite franchises ever. Prey tells the tale of an early visit to Earth by the Predator aliens. 
God Damn it they made a good Predator movie! This one is all about the gore and action. There are so many great kills that I can’t pick just one. I also enjoyed the throwback to the original with the “if it bleeds” line. I had very low expectations with this movie but had a blast. 

Movie four has me looking at another independent movie, Hell Van. I was able to do a set visit a couple of years ago for a magazine article and could tell that something special was happening on set. Director Jorge Delarosa knocked it out of the park with this one. Shot on a low budget over many weekends this labor of love checked a lot of boxes for me. The effects are great including his decision to go old school with miniatures in the finale with the drive-in.

They say that you can't go back again but movie three proves that wrong. Beavis and Butthead Do the Universe is a perfect example of nostalgia done right. This felt exactly like it did back in the nineties when I was watching the original series on MTV. I was cracking up… the old jokes still land. Then again maybe I'm just immature and haven't grown up. Either way I loved this one and recommend you check it out. 

Before I get to movie number two we need to talk. There is a huge difference between a zombie movie and an infected movie. It bugs the shit out of me when someone lumps a flick like 28 Days Later into the zombie genre. Why am I mentioning that? Because while I love The Sadness it isn't a damn zombie movie! It is awesomely twisted, bleak, gory, and unrelentingly nasty in all the best ways. It was nice to see something that kicked my ass like this movie did. As a jaded horror fan that is a rare thing. 

So what was my number one movie of 2022? Last Night in Soho completely blew me away. I was completely drawn into the plot and characters. The plot twists and turns were amazing and fun to navigate. I’m also very happy to see that one of my favorite actresses, Diana Rigg, got to end her career with a wonderfully meaty part. This is a perfect movie that I will watch again. I've always loved the work of Edgar Wright and this may be his best yet. It is a great movie. 

So there you have it. These are the best movies that I watched last year. Many great movies were watched and many awful ones too... I'm looking at you Suburban Sasquatch! All in all I had a blast and hope to come back at you in January of next year with another awesome list of new or new to me movies that I caught this year.

Siege (1983)

This movie was sold to me as the Canadian Assault on Precinct 13 and as the most violent Canadian action movie ever made. I mean I guess it could be true, but I need to check it out to confirm such high praise.

Set during a police strike in a major city, based on true events… at least the strike part, we see the folks trying to do their best to avoid criminals. That includes some barbed wire on the lawn of a suburban home and using a winch to heft a motorbike to the roof of an apartment building. After establishing a few folks, including an abusive husband, we see some vigilantes busting up a gay bar. Seems since there aren’t any cops to stop them, they thought it was time to teach them a lesson. While roughing up the bartender he is accidentally tossed onto a broken beer bottle and dies. This leads them to call their ringleader, Cabe.

He shows up and quickly decides to leave no witnesses! He takes a silenced pistol and executes them one at a time. The gun jams and the last club goer, Daniel, makes a break for it. After some chasing, he gets cornered in a small apartment building/duplex. The inhabitants decide they aren’t going to give him up and then the titular siege begins. The vigilantes arm themselves with silenced assault rifles and get to shooting even more folks. Though unlike the club they fight back with improvised weapons and Kevin McAlister style booby traps… though a bit more deadly. In the end lots of characters die and we are treated to a final big twist.

I liked Siege a lot. This has a low budget grimy quality that did remind me a bit of Assault on Precinct 13 but even more so of something like Tenement. The movie takes just enough time setting up the characters so that you like the folks that are put in danger at the apartment buildings and really hate the homophobic assholes that are causing all the trouble. This movie isn’t for the faint of heart, and I don’t mean because of the violence. In setting up the “bad guys” there is some hateful language used that shocked even me and I’m not at all sensitive to such things. These guys are nasty and that means when they get what is coming to them it is all the more satisfying.

Now the above doesn’t mean that there isn’t some good violence. You get some standard shootings, but that also includes the disturbing executions. While not explicit they do feel like a kick to the gut, which is what I’m thinking they were going for. There is also some fun with an improvised rocket bomb that leads to some nails being extracted in a rather painful looking way. The beer bottle to the back, a bit of electrocution, some fire to the face, and an arrow to the neck are also highlights. Though I loved how they take out the big baddie Cabe. It isn’t enough to stab and then shoot him, but he also gets an axe to the neck. They really wanted this guy dead!

I picked this movie up during the most recent sale at Severin and I think that they still have it on Blu-Ray and maybe DVD. If you like the gritty action flicks of the seventies and eighties, then this is going to be right up your alley. Also, if you like My Bloody Valentine then seeing Keith Knight as a blind character might be fun. Fans of Trailer Park Boys may also want to keep an eye out for another familiar face. All I’ll say here is BAAAAAAAAM!!! I highly recommend Siege.
